Dear Santa

Well, Christmas is in full swing. You can definitely tell by the 3 Christmas trees in my house and all of the outside lights that have been going up at our neighbors houses over the past week. I've got my first Christmas party (or as we call it Christmas Gala) with my girl friends on Saturday. I'm looking forward to spending time with them and doing what we do best... eat, drink, and open presents!

Speaking of, these are a few of the things that will be making Sam's first Christmas quite a merry one!
Sam's Christmas

He will also be getting this high chair from his Nonna and Poppy. It's a Mamas and Papas Juice high chair and I love that it is simple and modern looking and its not too too big. I swear some high chairs you look at need their own zip code.

Of course, there are also some really cute Christmas pj's and outfits that he will get as well. Can't wait to celebrate this time of year with him! I'd say he's going to have a pretty great Christmas. 

Saw It. Pinned It. Did It

I'm linking up with Katie and Steph for their weekly Saw It. Pinned It. Did It.

Things have been getting pretty festive around these parts. My husband probably officially thinks I have lost my mind with all things Christmas lately.

I can't help it. I get so excited to decorate and shop. To tell the truth, I've had my trees (notice the plural) up and decorated for 2 weeks now. I wanted Sam to experience the glowing of the tree lights so I put it up a bit early... and guess what? He doesn't even care. Go Figure.

But, that didn't stop me from buying yet another tree when I found this beaut at Target on Black Friday for just $30. I couldn't pass up that kind of deal. It was meant to be.

I moved all of our keepsake ornaments to this tree since there was more room then the small tree they were on. Which left me a whole tree to decorate!! (insert squeals) 

I found this pin on pinterest for cinnamon ornaments and thought it would be perfect to put on a kitchen tree. 

These were so simple to make. All I needed was a few ingredients and followed the recipe exactly and they turned out perfectly. My only suggestion is to bake them on wax paper or a silicone baking mat. Mine stuck to my  baking stone and I had to scrape them off with a spatula. 

They smell AMAZING and they look so cute on my tree that I strung with cranberry garland and Christmas cookie cutters. I now have a kitchen themed Christmas tree. And that. Well, that makes my heart real happy.

Merry Christmas!

All I Want for Christmas...

I was sitting here googling things that I may or may not want for Christmas this year and thought I may as well just put them on here. Hello, mom! Are you paying attention?!

Honestly there are only a couple of things that I REALLY want this year and then I just start thinking about all of the stuff I should get Sam for his first Christmas. Figures. I guess that is what happens when you have kids, huh?

Here are some things that I am eyeing this year:

These are Aubrey Brooke Taylor Riding Boots found here. They are technically already mine, just hiding in my house somewhere and I can't wait to get my greedy hands on them.

This beaute is a Nikon D3100. You know, so I can be a professional photographer SAHM.

Sam is about to start on baby foods and I will be making all of his purees. I need me a machine!

Since having Sam, I haven't read one. single. book. I've been wanting to read Gone Girl and Reached and this might give me the incentive to buy them and read them. 

This Swiss Dot duvet cover from West Elm... along with these sheets..

Oh, and there is always clothes. Or anything from Target.

The End.
