  And just like that, it’s THAT time of year!   The time of year when we have to deal with all of the Holiday treats we consumed and all the sleep that we missed staying up late.  It hit me hard these past few days so I decided to do a 3 day “reboot” cleanse with Raw Creations Juice!   It is hard the first day and a half, but once you get the hang of it, it not bad!  What keeps me coming back to Raw Creations and juice cleanses in general is how great I feel afterwards.  My energy is back and I feel less bloated AND I lost about 5 pounds!  Ben and I are also on day 7 of our January whole 30 and for me, starting off with a juice cleanse helps me feel less deprived of the good stuff (cookie and Diet Coke YUM.)

  I made the most delicious  whole 30 soup last night and Ben said it was the BEST thing I had every made! AND it’s whole 30!  Check out the recipe HERE and cute new workout close never hurt your motivation right? 😉

Smallwood Home | Custom Framing


    My sizes Medium and Square in the “Stain” finish | Shop HERE

 If you have followed me for long, you know I love Smallwood Home and Sweet Honey Clothing.  Both are part of the same company and both run out of my small home town of Longview Texas.  The products are great and I love supporting my home town, so I shop there often.

I want my kids to be surrounded with happy photos of themselves and the people they love!  To me, it’s the best art for your home.  I  love the quality of these custom prints!  They came quickly and were easy to hang and simple to order.   They really filled out the space I wanted to decorate well!

  Check out their Holiday ready to order signs HERE!

  Decorating for Christmas this year was so fun!  I added some new decor to my collection  much that came from Hobby Lobby, one of my most FAVORITE places to shop 🙂  I like to think of it as my own Christian shopping oasis.  I love giving them my business and always find good deals on decor and Sunday school teaching materials there.   Christmas decor was 50% off the whole season so most of my items were pretty cheap!

Other items that I found were my silk velvet ribbon that I scattered throughout my wrapping and decor.  The blue velvet came from the scraps of the fabric I ordered from Bella Notte Linens (color CENOTE.)  You can also find it from the Cottage Chic store online but you have to order at least 3 yards I believe.   I used the majority of it on my table runner and pillows for the couch (not pictured.).

Overall, love the new additions and LOVE, of course, the touches of blue velvet!  Christmas is a special time to remember the Birth of Jesus and spread joy and kindness in all the things we do!  I hope you find a way to spread joy this Christmas season!




Tessa: Bodysuit HERE | Dress HERE | Leggings HERE | Shoes HERE and she also has THESE | Bow HERE

Me: Dress HERE (s) also just purchased THIS ONE | Belt similar HERE | Boots Aquazzura similar HERE

 Since I purchased this little outfit for Tessa, I have wanted to take pictures in it playing with her favorite doll buggy.  I had purchased it years ago as a photography prop!  I didn’t know it would be my daughter’s favorite toy.  It has since taken on a LOT of wear and tear from many trips up and down the driveway.  This dress is my favorite midi sweater dress and it’s such a good price!
