Baby Shower

Yesterday was my baby shower and let me just tell you,  i t   w a s   t h e   b e s t. My friends put everything together without telling me any details other than the date of the shower. I had no clue what they were up to until I got there and it was an amazing surprise. I am a HUGE fan of the show Parks and Recreation and they went with that as a theme, but also had it at an adorable little tea place. It was clever, hilarious, cute and absolutely perfect and I’m so grateful to Julia and Dez for putting it all together for me and to everyone who attended. All of the little details were so good, the games were fun, the gifts (diapers and wipes only! although a couple of people snuck in other gifts as well) were perfect and much appreciated. I’m just a happy mama. I can’t believe we’re going to have another little lady in a few short months... I hope she likes Aziz Ansari as much as I do because she’ll be rocking a onesie with his face on it come March lol. I’m feeling very thankful and loved. 🤗

Please excuse a few blurry photos but I had pictures taken from my DSLR, my phone, other people’s phones and it’s just an assortment of fun moments that I didn’t want to leave out of this post just because they weren’t crystal clear.

Christmas Day

Our Christmas was pretty awesome this year. Everyone was in good spirits and really, when you have a kid, that’s enough to make your day. No tantrums, woot woot! We woke up at 6am and started the present opening... My parent’s slept over Christmas Eve so they could spend Christmas morning with us so I made an eggs benedict casserole to pop in the oven Christmas morning so I could just hang with everyone and take pictures/open presents instead of dealing with lots of cooking. Everyone loved all of their gifts from Santa & Rowan got everything she put on her wishlist so she scored. After presents we ate breakfast (cinnamon rolls for Rowan) and hung out for a couple of hours until we left to see the movie Sing, which was super cute. After the movie we were off to have dinner and visit with my brother-in-law’s family where we enjoyed carne asada burritos and played Pie Face. I highly recommend this game, it's so fun and hilarious. After visiting the family we headed home, got ready for bed, in our comfy pjs and watched some of The Office until bedtime. It was the perfect Christmas. I hope that you all had a great day as well and although I’m sad that Christmas is over, I’m very excited to ring in the new year and all that comes with it. Happy holidays!

Christmas Cookies

Today is the first day of Rowan’s winter break so we started it off with some cookie baking, complete with Christmas music on blast, giggling and a sneaky little elf who couldn’t resist dipping a finger into the frosting every 20 seconds. I really don’t want the holidays to end..
