Updated!! December Cara Box Reveal

I am so excited that I got to participate this month for my 2nd Cara Box, to get to involved visit Wifessionals!!  I found out December 1st that my husband and I had to move in two weeks, along with finishing finals and graduating!  But I accomplished it all and got my Cara box off without a hitch!!!  This month was different, as I sent my box to one girl and another sent to me!  So glad I got to know two new people, always fun!!  I sent my box to Brittney and loved getting to know her to include as much fun in the box as possible!  Jump on over to her blog and see what I sent!  I received my box from Tyler and I loved everything about it!  I am so sorry that I don't have pictures (did I mentioned I moved and it isn't found yet!!, shameful I know!) I had lots of sparkle in my box this time (the theme, of course)!  She sent me some ornaments for our tree, some magnets, and a few other things!  I will post an update with pictures, hopefully the hubs will find our camera today!  I wanted to get this post of there, but so sorry for no pictures!!!

Updated - Pictures of my December Cara Box!!  Because I found the camera!

Loves and Happy New Year!

Christmas is over??

I really love and look forward to Christmas every year!  This year has been crazy with finals, graduation, packing and moving.  But Thank the good Lord above that I am here to stay that I accomplished it all!  We had to be ready to host Christmas with my family on Sunday, and we were!  Don't mind the office not being completed, master bedroom and bath weren't done and we didn't have all our pictures hung, but goodness give a girl some slack!  We had places to sit, food to eat, and a kitchen to prepare it in!  I would say I did pretty darn good for a girl doing it most of it on her own.  My husband did an amazing job on his closet, you know because that's where people will sit while opening presents what makes him happy! 

I will do a house tour as soon as our pictures are hung, which will be there week.  We are having some family stay with us this weekend and then hosting one kick a$$ New Year's Eve party for all of our friends.  You know the other 6 couples that got married within 4 months of us....yeah we are awesome like that!  We absolutely love having such a close group of friends to share all of our excitment with!

I better get to work!  Hope you all had a blessed Christmas holiday!!!  Now, maybe you should get back to work too!

Be Blessed!

It's finals week....

I am in the midst of finals week, wish it was actually my last.  I was told 2 weeks into school that I was lacking 3 hours to actually complete my degree, I have enough to graduate so not enough to finish my Accounting degree.  Yeah, thanks OSU advisor!  NOT!  Mind you, I have had 2 degree audits and they missed that both times.  Sounds about right.  Well last night I had my Business Law final, which I rocked it's socks off!!  YES!  I leave at 12 today to finish studying for my final tonight at 6 then I have another one tomorrow night.  After tomorrow night, I will packing for a weekend in Stillwater, then home to move.

Our house is pretty much packed, the hubs has to finish the kitchen tonight and I need to put away the Christmas that we aren't taking over assembled. I am just ready for it all to be over!!!  I am super excited to see my family this weekend and share this exciting time.  I never thought I would graduate!!! But I am!!!

Have a blessed 12.12.12!!!

Oh Tuesday, can you be over?

So just wanted to update you guys on my last 48 hours!  The hubs and I were renting a house for a year to see if we liked the area and if we wanted to buy it (originally house was on the market/lease).  Well Saturday afternoon, we got a phone call from our Landlord saying that she had moved back to town and was going to stage a house on the market until our lease was up, but it sold that evening after she finished moving in.  Of course!  So she is offered us a HUGE discount to move out by Christmas so she only has to move once, and she doesn't want to sell her house anymore!  So we spent Sunday looking for either another house or would even settle for an apartment for a year until we are ready to buy.  We found a house, very close to my office and right by all the highways!!  We will get to start moving in the 16th, oh did I mention I walk at graduation the 15th? and have finals next week?  Yeah, because I am not busy enough, please add in packing and moving, along with my families Christmas is at our house.  So I just finished our Christmas decorations around the house, only to take them right back down!!!  SOOOOO FRUSTRATING!  I will make it through! Hopefully!!!  I might come down with shingles again, like I did three weeks before our wedding.  What doesn't kill us, makes us stronger right???  My husband has taken the lead in our family and I am so blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life!!

I better to started working for the day, it's Month End!  Oh to be an accountant.  Ugh!

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

Well wouldn't you know, it's December 1st!!  Wow, time flies when you are having fun, er really busy!!  I thought I would give you guys a little taste of what the husband and I been up trying to make our house a Winter Wonderland.  I hope you think it is pretty and if you don't, well remember the saying "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."  I kid I kid, you all will love it.  I hope!  So Christmas is a big deal for me, I am always in such the Christmas spirit.  My husband, on the other hand, can get kinda Grinchy!  I usually do most of the shopping, all the packing, and all the wrapping.  I guess that is just how it goes....I will shut my mouth and let the picture do most of the talking!  I have to tell you where stuff is, okay!
Since the hubs and I are a strong house divided, one of bff's gave this to me for Christmas a couple years ago.  Cute, right?

Our Nativity Scene table (as you walk into our front door) 

I seriously love these little Alpine trees, I got them for like 2.00 after Christmas a couple years time to shop if you are adding to your collection!

 Guest Bathroom is Snowmen decor and peppermints.  

One of my favorite signs, it went well in the Guest bathroom this year. 

Our Advent Calendar...the elf brings something everyday!

Living room tree...I never think it is good enough!

My homemade Merry Christmas Sign and my fancy new reindeer.  The Santa was a gift from the hubs our first year together...he knew he would do well if he went with decor.

Mantel...not sure how I feel but it's up there and I am done decorating! 

Dining room tree is in leopard burlap with brown, black, and pearlish gold balls.  I just cut that burlap tree skirt and need to add the leopard deco mesh, that will happen next year! 

Our little Charlie Brown tree

Master bedroom tree in turquoise to match our room.

This is our picture wall, just because I finally got our wedding pictures hung! I love how it turned out!

I hope you have enjoyed the parade of homes tours...have a blessed weekend!
