No Such Luck

Last Thursday Santa came to your neighborhood and announced that our house was not one of the winners in the Christmas Light Competition.  Adam thinks we were "snubbed," but I think it just means we need more lights next year! 

Merry Christmas everyone!

Cookies Galore!

'Tis the season for Christmas baking!  I've been trying to fight this urge for a couple weeks now but it was finally time to start baking last night! I've been preparing for weeks (I know, I'm rediculous) and was so excited to get in the kitchen!  Here are some pictures of my Holiday treats!

Haystacks!  These take me back to highschool - but this time I didn't burn the Chocolate!

Thumbprints - recipe courtesy of my Great Aunt Helen


Sour Cream sugar cookies - the best!!  Adam even helped decorate!

Christmas Lights!

Our neighborhood is having a Christmas light competition and Adam has really gotten into it.  In his own words, "we are going to the 'W'."  The judging is next Wednesday and our neighbors aren't making this easy - we'll see what happens!

Feelin' Crafty

I have been feeling very craft lately but could not figure out what to make.  Well, I think I finally found my project!  Check out these CUTE yarn wreaths!  I know what I'll be doing this weekend!

Thanks to Danielle at Take Heart for this great idea!  Look here for step-by-step directions.

Go Cougs!

In the spirit of Apple Cup I thought I'd share this quote I found!  I love it!

Go Cougs!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  This year was my first year making Thanksgiving dinner and I think it turned out alright!  Adam liked it and we are both stuffed so that's all that matters.  Here our some pictures of our first Thanksgiving as a married couple!

I attempted to create a centerpiece - looked better when the candles were lit.

Our favorite - "Amy's" Salad

Ok, I know this is a lot of food for two but what can I say, I am my mother's daughter!

We hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving!  Now time to prepare our Black Friday shopping startegy - happy shopping!

Cozy day at home...

With the little bit of snow and tons of ice that we got yesterday it wasn't worth going to work today (took me 2.5 hours to drive 12 miles last night).  I was able to work from home and Adam took the day off!  It was nice to be able to spend the day together in the middle of the week!  The dogs loved it too! 

Here is a recipe perfect for these cold days!
(Thanks to Laura over at Real Mom Kitchen)

Nothing better than having a hot cup of hot chocolate and being cuddled up on the couch with my husband and puppy!

Hope everyone is staying safe and warm in this cold weather!

Diaper Cake

I was hit by the creativity bug a couple weekends ago and decided to make a diaper cake for our friend Alicia's baby shower.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!

We got hitched!!

Hi Everyone!  I decided it was time to start a blog so you all can see what Adam and I are up to.  I will try to update as often as possible, but let's be honest - we aren't that exciting!  Here are some wedding pictures to get started.  I will post more once I get them from my photographer.  Enjoy!

Heading up to see Adam!

My beautiful bridesmaids! I love you girls!

First Dance

Can't get enough of this little guy!
