It's been a while since my last blog post. We've been really busy lately and blogging hasn't been my top priority. Hopefully that will change soon. Here's a few updates on what's been going on and what I've been loving about life.
#1. I'm loving that we got to go home and spend Christmas with my family. We didn't have our family Christmas until January this year, but my parents made sure to leave all the decorations up for us to enjoy.
Seems like our stockings doubled in one year. I love the way my mom displays the Christmas cards on the mantle with the stockings. It's my favorite thing to check them all out.
We added this stocking to the mix this year. My talented mom made it all herself especially for Aaron. Isn't that cool?

#2. I'm loving the new pillows I got for Christmas. They are both homemade which makes them even more special.
My super crafty sister-in-law made this adorable pillow. I LOVE IT!
I also made another set of these mugs for my friend who placed an order.
...and I started on a little decor project for our living room wall above the TV. It's not finished yet so I can't show you the finished product, but I will post about it when I'm done. Nothing fancy, it just needed something.
On top of all the crafting, I also managed to have dinner on the table when Aaron got off work. I'm telling you, it was a productive day and it felt oh, so good. Most of them are not that productive.Mix and Match Mama's (The Bachelor, Sean Lowe's sister) Chicken-a-la-King. It was really good and easy. You can find the recipe here: http://www.mixandmatchmama.blogspot.com/2014/01/dinner-tonight-chicken-la-king.html. If you haven't read her blog, you should definitely go look at it. She has some wonderful recipes.
#5. Did anyone else love the Bachelor wedding as much as me? I'll be honest, I shed some tears. I just love Catherine and Sean. I don't think they could get any cuter. The wedding was beautiful and so very precious. It made me want to get married to Aaron all over again.
Happy Sunday! Hope you all have a wonderful week.
