Show & Tell Tuesday: Christmas Decor

Christmas Decorations

Today I am linking with Andrea to share our Christmas Decor. I love getting a glimpse into other peoples homes and seeing how they decorate!

Let me be honest here, not much has changed from our 2014 decorations. Next year should be different though since Baby S will be here to celebrate!




Mimi picked up this little stocking for our tree to represent our little buck-a-roo on the way 🙂


This nativity scene was passed down to me from my mom. Its so old but fits perfectly with the rustic Christmas vibe that we have going on.


Mimi also picked up little man’s first Christmas tree with a cute little baseball ornament. Next year, I plan to put this in his room but for now it fits great on our Christmas card table.


Christmas is my very favorite holiday and I am always so sad to pack up the decorations. I have to admit though that I am so looking forward to Christmas next year with a 9month old although I may have to move all of my ornaments up a little higher on the tree ha!


Pumpkin Pie


Nothing says Fall like a good pumpkin recipe! As long as I can remember, this is the recipe that my mom has always used for her pumpkin pie. This recipe comes just in time for your Thanksgiving get-together.


  • 2 – 9inch pie shells (I used the traditional size. If using the deep crust this will only yield one pie)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 can of pumpkin
  • 12oz of evaporated milk

Preheat oven to 425. Mix together spices and sugar and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix pumpkin and eggs with electric mixer. Slowly add in sugar/spice mixture. Once combined stir in evaporate milk until incorporated.

Once combined, pour evenly into two pie shells. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes and then reduce heat to 350 and continue to bake an additional 45 minutes or so. A knife should be inserted into the middle and come out clean once pies are done.



Friday Favorites

FridayFavorites3_zpsea6fc451Getting back into the swing of things around here, I am linking with Andrea, Narci, and Erika to share my Friday Favorites!


After the ordeal over the weekend with Chris’s jeep, he purchased this bad boy yesterday!


Monday night, we got together with my Dad’s extended family who we only see once every few years. Everyone brought old pictures. Can we just look and how cute my dad was?! Looking at this picture there is no denying who my brother favors.


Speaking of old pictures, here is a picture of my paternal grandfather when he was a wrestler. How handsome!


This weekend, we are going to begin on the nursery! Ekk!! I’m sure all we will accomplish is taking all of the current pictures off the wall and puttying the holes in preparation to paint but it is still so exciting to vision the space ready for our little man. Speaking of, I am trying to find a way to convince Chris that spending $$$ on this stuffed elephant is ok. Dang you, RH!!

It looks like the cooler temps are here to stay. I’m looking forward to bundling up in my PJ’s and spending a quiet weekend at home.
