I love New Year's Eve! Ever since I have been married, my husband and I usually do something fun for New Year's. Last year we went with some friends of ours to Muscle Shoals, AL to this cute little golf resort and partied away with the old people. We definitely made the party!

This year we are going a little more our favorite date night restaurant, Walnut Circle Grill. We invited another couple to go with us; it's always more fun with friends! While we were out Christmas shopping, Jeffry helped me choose my dress which is adorable and totally not my usual color. I did NOT want to wear black. I get tired of black dresses. Jeffry actually picked this dress himself. You'll have to wait to see pictures!! I also got some snazzy Antonio Melani. They always fit perfectly and have the cutest styles for a great price.

I'm off to Poplarville for lunch with my BFF then going to get pretty for tonight!

Work EOY

Yuck, I'm stuck at work doing End of Year. For those of you who don't know, my husband and I own a building supply/ hardware store, and I do all of our accounting and bookwork. Since I have been out with the baby and also with Brayden being out of school over the holidays, I'm a little behind. And I'm trying to get everything posted by the end of work today. UGH! Not to mention the fact that I have this little thing called sleep deprivation (aka a newborn baby!) these days...

Christmas celebrations, part 1

Wow, I have been MIA for a while. It seems like I've barely posted anything besides pictures since Trace was born. My brain seems unable to form complete sentences these days, haha. So Christmas was wonderful...a little frenzied at times, but wonderful nonetheless. Jeffry and I opened our gifts to each other on Christmas Eve eve. I had already given him a big surprise of a new tool box for his truck, but that night he opened a sweet wall photo frame for our bedroom, a new jacket, toiletry bag, new Luckys, a vest, and some BluRay DVDs. Little did he know, there would be more in store the next day!

He got me lots of new PJ's and things from Victoria's Secret, a fancy diamond bracelet that I adore!, some North Face clothes, a Message Bible that's purple and white, and a new North Face jacket with my 4 karat diamond hoops hiding in the pocket!! He's so good! He totally picked the earrings out himself; I love my sweet hubby!

Christmas Eve morning we woke up and had breakfast with the boys. Then we got ready and headed to Lucedale to celebrate at his parents with his brother and his girlfriend, grandparents, aunt, uncle, and cousins. Lunch was yummy; we did a seafood fest this year! We had fried shrimp and oysters, crab au gratin, and delicious gumbo. With his extended family we draw names, and Danielle (his brother's girlfriend) got me this awesome painting I wanted for our bedroom at the new house! I was so excited. I actually drew her name too, ha. Jeffry got a new fireplace tool set for the new house, and also a sling for his gun. The boys racked up with way too many toys! After the cousins left, we opened gifts with Jeffry's parents. I got new Chanel makeup (YAY!), a new wallet, a USM frame with family photo inside, and a fancy edition of Scrabble. His parents gave us some awesome black rockers for the new house, and a Wii!! So now we are addicted and playing every night...and I want a Wii Fit!

To be continued!
