Back in the Swing of Things

Hello! I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas! Jason & I just returned home from Phoenix a few hours ago — for the first time ever, each of my 5 siblings & their significant others (+1 baby!) and our parents were in the same place at the same time, which was incredible. It’s still crazy to me that we’re all old enough to have each gone our separate ways & no longer all live in the same city. I can’t imagine a place that I’d rather be during the holidays than in a gorgeous, warm city like Phoenix with all of my immediate family. The next time we will all be in the same place at the same time will be at Jason & I’s wedding in May so we don’t have to wait long between “reunions” this time around! Continue reading

So again, I put the project aside.

At this point, I kind of just want to be done with these things, so I decided to come up with a Plan B.

Sick again…

I’m currently at home sick for the second time in January. Lets just say that I got the flu shot back in October & have now had the flu twice. This is ridiculous & honestly really disgusting. I just gathered all my strength to get out of bed & Lysol everything in this house since Jason has yet to get over his sickness either. While I was up I decided I could take advantage of having the house to myself & the pups in their rooms…
