High Five For Friday

Hello everyone! Welcome to the weekly High Five For Friday linkup hosted by Tif @ Bright On A Budget, Katie @ Cup of Tea and myself. We're glad you're here!

This week's featured blogger is Catherine from A Short Blonde. Catherine is  a professional latte designer, full-time adventurer, part-time dessert baker and assistant for her husband’s design company. She has some great posts like this Holiday Wish List for Babies. Please stop by and say hello to Catherine.

This was a fairly good week until Raylan ended up in the ER last night with really bad bronchitis. Please say a prayer for him. He's feeling pretty bad and I hate seeing him so sick. On a happier note, let's rewind to some of my favorites from this week.

1) Now that Thanksgiving is officially over, I can finally post Raylan's Christmas photos. I am so in love with them. I couldn't decide which one to put on this year's Christmas Card, so of course I put both of them on there. 

2) Justin had a 4 day weekend because of Thanksgiving break, so we took Raylan to look at Christmas lights. Looking at Christmas lights is by far one of my favorite things to do during this time of year.  It's even more fun now that we have Raylan. He was amazed by all of the lights.

3) Raylan received a FaceTime call from Santa this week.  Raylan didn't know what to think. I think he was in shock. Download Video Santa app. It is the cutest thing ever.

4) Raylan made me the sweetest little craft at Story Time this week. I would rather have something made like this than something store bought any day. I treasure little things like this.

5) Raylan heard a knock at the door and guess who it was? It was Rowdy the Elf with his suitcase. He said he was moving in until after Christmas. Raylan's not sure what to think about Rowdy.

Well that's a wrap for me. I hope you all have a blessed weekend. Say a prayer for Raylan and for me, I have finals next week. God Bless You!

Giving Thanks: What I'm Thankful For

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. It is a time to Give Thanks and to reflect on what we are thankful for. However, we should always be thankful everyday not just one day out of the year. I like to make a list every year to remind myself just how blessed that I truly am. So here is what I am thankful for this year...

High Five For Friday

Hello everyone! Welcome to the weekly High Five For Friday linkup hosted by Tif @ Bright On A Budget, Katie @ Cup of Tea and myself. We're glad you're here!

This week's featured blogger is Jessica from Life, Love, Reality. Jessica is a wife and a mom of two beautiful little girls. She also works full time and is a soccer and basketball mom. She has been blogging for 9 years. Jessica blogs about the struggles of being a woman, wife, mom, friend and daughter now a days. She has a wonderful blog. Please stop by and say hello to Jessica. 

This has been a busy but good week. I'm so thankful that it is Friday. Please say a prayer for me as I take the written portion of my Praxis Exam today. I need to be able to pass the writing and math to be able to advance in the teaching program. Let's recap my favorites from this week.

1) I'm loving this photo of Raylan and his cousin's Noah and Morgan that was taken over the weekend. He hardly gets to see his cousins, so this photo is extra special. We had a surprise party for Noah's 18th Birthday. I only wish Jeremy was in the photo, but he had to work.

2) I visited a church that my cousin had invited me to on Sunday and I am so thankful that I did. It was such a wonderful experience. You could truly feel the presence of God in that service. I can't wait to go back. That service changed my life for the better. God is so good.

3) My day was made this week when I got my first Peppermint Hot Cocoa for the season. It was so good. Now, if McDonald's would hurry and get their Holiday Pies in.

4) This UK cake is by far one of my favorites that I have made. It was so much fun to make especially since I'm a huge CATS fan. Go Big Blue!

5) I absolutely adore this photo of Raylan when we were Christmas shopping this week. He just had to try on these boots. He looks like a real Cowboy for sure. 

Well that's it for me. I hope everyone has a blessed weekend and Thanksgiving. We really do have a lot to be thankful for. God is good.

Layered Chambray Look

It is officially cold in Eastern Kentucky. This past weekend was super cold, so it was definitely time to break out the sweaters and boots. It was actually even cold enough to wear layers, so that is exactly what I did.

8 Daily Things I Do With My Toddler

Being a mom is a tough job, especially a mom of a toddler.  It's by far the hardest job that I have ever had, yet the most rewarding. Being a Toddler Mom is definitely not for the faint of heart; however, I love the toddler ages. The toddler years are so much fun! I see my son learning something new every single day. I am simply amazed by everything that he knows. He is also maturing into his own little person with a teenage attitude. I enjoy spending time with Raylan and making memories with him. This truly is the best time. Here are 8 Daily Things that I Do With My Toddler.
