Darn You.....Daylight Savings Time

I looked forward to daylight savings time every year, but my body is jacked since it occurred on Sunday. I love to sleep so I do not understand why I am having a hard time  sleeping. I just want to cuddle in my bed under my comforter and watch a little tv before passing out with the sleep timer. I know what is going to happen is that once my body gets use to the new schedule it will be time to lose that special little hour we gained. I will try to figure out something with burning my lavendar candle,  spraying my pillow spray and putting on my night mask and just relax until a drift off to sleep.

Monday Murmurings: Hallowthankfulmas

I just love Halloween. The idea of being someone else for 24 hours, eating all the candy you want without judgement and decorating the house in creepy things is always fun. What I really like about Halloween, it is the official kick off to the holiday season. Not only can you shop for all of the Trick or Treat items you need but you can also pick out your stuffed turkey for Thanksgiving and your new Christmas decorations. You also watch a horror movie and then flip to another channel and watch a Christmas movie. No really, I love the holidays but I want to enjoy one holiday at a time. Yes, I have been on Pintrest gathering all of my intel for Thanksgiving and Christmas decor and watching a few of the Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel,  for the most part I have not been mashing all the holidays together.  Mashing all of the holidays together, just speeds up the ending of the year.  I want to enjoy being with family, baking cookies with my daughter, decorating the house, adding new ornaments and watching all the holiday movies together. I want to enjoy every moment of making new memories that each holiday brings. Soooo...No Hallowthankfulmas for my me and mine. We are going to enjoy pigging out on candy then transition to stuffing ourselves with graditude and turkey to stuffing stockings and then finally celebrating the blessing of the past year.  Hallothankfulmas to all and to all a GREAT holiday season.

Our Sunday Afternoon: Family Pictures and Family Time

Well.... lets start off with that my husband hates taking pictures, but I love them. I have had some
photos done for my daughter but none of our family since she was 2 and I thought it was time. I wanted something that we could use for our Christmas card as well as chronicle that my little one is now 5. I really do not like the Olan Mills look of pics and really enjoy photos that reflect more of us a individuals and as a family.

To prepare for the shoot I found two chalkboard signs at Target in the Dollar Spot and used a chalk pen and wrote our name on one and Merry Christmas on the other to use a props. I also found these cute t-shirts that we wore as well.   Of course, my daughter and I had the same shoes one. I think they turned out great and I can not wait to start creating our Christmas card. Thanks Jesssica Bouman Photography for the get pics. Here are just a few.....

After the photo session, we went  our to dinner enjoyed some good food and some funny conversation. By the end of the day we were beat and all we wanted to do was to veg out on the couch in front of the TV.  Well should I say, my husband and I wanted to all my daughter wanted to do was to play outside.  She got her wish as my hubby and vegged out on the outside furniture, one last time before the weather changed, and she got to play on the neighbors trampoline. All in all it was a fun, family-filled day.
