I am done with Christmas and ready for summer. 
I want to go camping fancy style or glamping  as "they" call it.
 I found some really cute vintage trailers online that I am drooling over.

This is the vintage trailer that started my internet search.
 I love the colors and especially the red pennant banner.

In the morning I want to make coffee for my family here.

And drink it together here, while the kids ride their beach cruisers around and we talk about everything and nothing, about past trips and the funny things that happened.

 And in the afternoon I want to sit in the shade with my honey,
read a good book and listen to the waves crash.

And at night eat a great dinner, play games, roast marshmallows and make wonderful memories.
I can't wait for summer.

life rearranged
The Start of the Advent Season

Switching to decaf coffee and a smaller cup.
The caffeine was giving me the shakes, so I needed to stop, but I was worried about caffeine withdrawal headaches. I slowly switched this week little by little and not one headache. Woo Hoo!

I am feeling pretty good 23 days in and I only have 4 people left to buy for!
This is a first for me usually I am still shopping December 23rd.
Check out my tutorial for the count down chalkboard here.

Check out the super scary pirate face.
Grady got an early Christmas present, a Pirates of the Caribbean hoodie and matching t-shirt.
Yeah, he loves the fur. 

Here we are dorking out, happens all the time.

Advent Day 1- Pull out the Poinsettias
These are my birthday month flower and I think they are so beautiful. 
They come in so many cool colors now too. 

Day 2 - Write a letter to Santa
Do these early to avoid disappointment.
I am always surprised about what they want. 
We had a busy week but tons of fun.
I feel so blessed to be able to spend so much time with my kids.
 Thanks, Babe, for working so hard for us!
