merry christmas and happy new year!

So much has been going on this past month that I have had no time for much of anything. In fact its about to get a bit more crazy because we are moving today in our new house! I honestly cant wait for this next week to be over.
I know its a bit of a picture overload but like i said, much has happened.

We spent an entire month up in Utah since we we've been a little homeless waiting to close on our house.
Heres what we did:
Saw santa with fireworks and snow!

Did a lot of playing in the snow.

Caught a lizard right before naptime so he would't fall on our faces.

Gave some love'n to Cup and Skittles.

Did lots of eating.

and reading

and of course my favorite, sleeping.

more playing!

Yes, she's pantless. She refused to wear pants.

Helped G'ma stoke fires.

Um well, all I can say is, He's a pig.

Got a little muddy which once he realized he was dirty, he was pretty sad about it.

Did some crying

And some love'n

Headed further North and did LOTS of shopping.

More eating!

Finally Christmas! Every 3 years my family, aunts, uncles, cousins, all get together and have a BIG but simple Christmas. This year we held it at a warehouse. Lots of fun but really dirty.

Vance arrived to spend the rest of the holiday with us and take us bake home to Tucson. It was a fun surprise too since he arrived earlier than he had said.

i've got style (IGS)

week 3!

i didn't feel like dressing up with layers or accessories so i kept it simple. i LOVE simple!
so simple in fact that i didn't even do my hair when i got out of the shower. i used to hate my curly/wavy hair when i was younger. i've realized now that it is actually very low maintenance.
so all you curlied hair gals, embrace those lovely locks!!

sweater ~ Old Navy
jeans ~ AE
boots ~ Payless

that's it! i rolled my jeans up to create the illusion that i had stockings on with the 2 tone colores. 
anywho, accessorize what you will with this outfit! scarves, necklaces, bracelets, rings. it really is limitless. 

SoCute Design presents...

these lovelies are infant size 0-3 months to be precise!
they are very simple and delicate. perfect for any baby girl!

the holidays or just around the corner! come and check out!

please meet....

meet Nemo. (i personally think he's a fred) but it's the kids fish and Gemma loves Nemo.
he's actually been kind of fun to have. well, as much fun as a fish can be.
he's fun to watch swim around and i probably like him more than my kids.

something interesting about Nemo is he try's to attack pens. i tease him because it's so darn funny! his gills fan out and makes him look more intimidating and his fins span out looking bigger and then he plows head first with mouth open at the side of his tank.

sounds mean i know so i only tease him when someone comes over and hasn't seen his trick. ;)
