Winter Break 2015/16

For the first time in… I don’t know, ever, I had a REAL Winter Break this year. Even in college, I always worked over breaks. Hell, in high school I worked over breaks.

This year, I took off from Thursday, December 24th (I only worked a half day on the 23rd) through the new year… meaning today is my first day back.

Ahhhhhhhh… SO NICE!

To make it even better, the hubs was off, too!

We spent the first half of our trip really relaxing. I’m talking daily naps, afternoon movies, day dates, etc. Unfortunately, Charlotte got sick on the 24th and was sick with pink eye… then a few days later got sick with a fever, which she had for three + days.

Can you tell which eye C had pink eye?? We were at the doc the next morning!


Christmas Carols! Guess which mini person loved all the singing?

Can you believe she’s like 36 or 37 weeks pregnant? Looking good!


Hello, telephone!


Big chats.

I swear we don’t just leave pill bottles lying around. This is the empty container for her eye drops.

Charlotte was being a sass in front of her future hubby during our playdate. In her defense, the fever started that night.

New Years Eve 2015/16: Bowling Party


Bowling with a toddler was hilarious!



Happy NYE face.


 The second half of our vacation was spent painting Charlotte’s new big girl room! I’ll do an entire post dedicated to the new room and painting process, but the gist is that we’re going to leave the nursery as-is (ish) – only changing decor, but leaving all major furniture/paint – and move Charlotte to the other bedroom.


So, to begin the room makeover, we painted. Trim and all!

We picked Sherwin Williams Intimate White, which is pretty dang pink/coral. BUT, I really love how it turned out and think it’s all going to come together quite nicely.

We moved the furniture into the hallway!

AFTER: Sneak peek with just a few items in the room!
