Holiday Happenings

Holiday Happenings

You know what?  I’ve enjoyed this holiday season.  I really have.  It hasn’t felt quite as frantic as some in the past, I’ve enjoyed putting Christmas decorations in our new home, making cookies and spending time with some friends. I didn’t get to many, many things on my list.  I would have liked to go to Arkansas to see my family, I wanted to host some friends for dinner or a small party or two.  I don’t necessarily feel like…

Santa Baby …

Santa Baby …

Bill and I went to a sweet, sweet wedding on Saturday night.  Bill has worked with the bride’s mom for years and years and we think their family is awesome.  We had such a great time. I convinced Bill to get into the photo booth (really, why do I have to convince him of these things?!?).  I gave him a Santa hat and thought he looked so cute.  The photo booth guy gave me an elf hat which I quickly…

Santa Claus came to town.

I love being invited to Christmas festivities.  I don’t want to miss a thing.  But, truth be told, cookie exchange parties always make me a little nervous.  I’m not exactly known for my culinary talents. But I can copy a recipe (kind of … anyone remember last year when I failed to notice that one batch of cinnamon roll dough made 7 pans and I ended up with something like 35 pans of cinnamon rolls?!?). It’s actually been several years…

I’m not going back to this Christmas Party for a LONG time!

I’m not going back to this Christmas Party for a LONG time!

I love making gingerbread houses with my kids.  I’ve bought several of the packages in the past and we’ve enjoyed putting them together but I usually end up thinking …. “these would be better with different candy” or “why do my walls keep falling down?!”.  More recently I wondered … “why have I bought kits for two years in a row and not ever made the houses?!”. So this year when I saw an announcement for a gingerbread party at…

It’s a story that had to be told …

There was kind of a big deal football game last weekend in Waco.   Baylor played the University of Texas.  Although we won the game last year, they’ve won it so many times that any time we win we are really, really excited.  So excited that one year we took the girls to the game (maybe 10 years ago) and when we beat UT we all watched as the fans tore down the goal posts.  Good stuff. Moving on to this…

The blog is back.

The blog is back.

For starters, I don’t even know where the blog has been the last month or more.  Not only did I not write blogs, I didn’t even read blogs.  Yes, I did go on pinterest a time or 200 … I even made a few things from the site like this …  And a grilled cheese with bacon and avacado sandwich …. that was DELICIOUS.  I made it for the Hilltop Honeys and the Dilla Honey’s (ha!  my parents, the Dillahunty’s)…

Pinterest is my downfall …

Pinterest is my downfall …

I was thinking tonight (while I was perusing through Pinterest … my latest addiction), that I hadn’t blogged in awhile and that I didn’t really have anything to blog about.  Then I went to my pictures and thought … well, I guess there have been a few things.  So, I’ve stopped (momentarily) clicking on tons of cute ideas, delicious looking recipes and the like to catch back up on my real life. A week or so ago our elementary school…

So many things to love …

So many things to love …

  There are so many things that I loved about today.  You’ll have to forgive me for writing a list, but I wanted to write them down so I wouldn’t forget … 1.  I woke up … thought I’d overslept …. then remembered it was Columbus Day and went back to sleep.  It was a beautiful moment. 2.  Caroline and I went to Target.  It didn’t start off great but honestly … having some one on one time with her…

Such an exciting 10 seconds …

Such an exciting 10 seconds …

Jacob has LOVED playing soccer this year. If you are thinking to yourself .. wait, I thought he was playing football …. well, you’d be right.  He’s doing both.  We’re nuts. I prefer soccer.  Lots fewer injuries.  But alas, he wanted to play both and we’re doing church league soccer which is very low key.  I love it.  It’s the exact opposite of football which is … practice all the time. Anyway … a week or two ago Jacob made…

It will come as no surprise to you that Jacob is the absolute apple of my eye.   He says things on a regular basis that make me think … “I should write that down”. In an attempt to not be behind on every single aspect of my life, I’ve written down a few of my favorite things here that he has said in the last couple of weeks.      *Bill was recently out of town and I asked Jacob if…
