Erin Condren 40% Off Christmas Cards!

It's that time of year again....time to think about Christmas Cards!

Some of you may remember that I ordered Erin Condren cards last year, and I loved them!  I got so many compliments on them and I decided to use her for my cards again this year.  She has lots of new designs and I can't wait to choose one!

Plum District is offering 40% off - so, it's $60 for $100 worth of Holiday Cards.  It doesn't expire until December 7th, so that gives me plenty of time to get my sweet and talented friend Kelly to take our Christmas pictures again this year!!!

Look at some of these cuties!
This is the design I sent out last year.  LOVE!

I'm loving Chevron lately.

And I love these because they are not the traditional Christmas colors.  Something different!

So stinkin' cute!

I love that you can type in hundreds of words representing your family over the last year. 

Here's the code if you are interested - http://www.plumdistrict.com/three_for_free/c1a24cf726/click

We just got home from Kona!

What an amazing place!  Kona, or The Big Island, has an active volcano.  It's not like the other islands that I've been to, because it is all lava rock!  It is very dark, but very beautiful and untouched.  I've never seen anything like it.

After an 18 hour day of travel, I finally made it!  And, I found a very, very sick hubby.  Apparently, many of his coworkers got a horrible virus and had the on staff doctor busy as could be.  I felt just terrible for him.  He spent a good amont of our trip coughing, fighting a fever and sleeping.  Poor guy.  Thankfully, I'm okay on my own, so I entertained myself just fine.

Each morning I woke up for the sunrise, and walked a couple miles to the market where I had fresh fruit and coffee for breakfast, and stocked up on juice, water and snacks for the day.  I loved starting my days that way.  Then I would take hubby his fruit and head down to the pool or the beach.  It was so nice to relax, take naps, and read.  I read three books!!  I haven't read a book in forever!
This trail, The Kings Trail, was made out of lava rock.  It goes all the way across the island.  Isn't it amazing?  I went a couple of miles in each direction...it's a rough hike!  I just love the idea of the thousands of people over hundreds of years that traveled on this trail.
The resort was beautiful and quiet.  I could have spent months there.  We even watched Monday night football and cheered our Texas on to a win!

We went to Roy's for my birthday dinner.  It was amazing, as always.  Last year, for my 30th birthday, we went to Roy's in Las Vegas.  This year, Hawaii.  I love birthdays!!! 

My parents treated us to a sunset dinner at KPC, the best dining on the island.  They always know the greatest things to do.


Now we are home, and back to reality!  At least we are well rested and super tan!

And...I'm back!

Hi Friends!

I know, I know, I haven't blogged in such a long time...our lives have been so incredibly busy and blessed!

We are getting settled in our new home at long last.  I am so grateful for it!  It's taking us quite some time to get everything how we want it, but we are making progress!

Jaxson is almost 17 months old!  Can you believe it?  He is such a big boy.  He is all boy and a little sweetheart at the same time.  It's so amazing and wonderful.  I had no idea being a Mom would be such a huge blessing. 

Hubby left for Hawaii yesterday for his awards trip for work.  Jaxson and I are here enjoying our Mom & Son time.  It's so nice to have some time alone with him, and some time to myself...to do things like update this blog!  haha!  I leave for Hawaii on Friday morning to join Hubby.  My precious parents are coming to stay here with Jaxson.  I am so thankful for them and I can't wait for them to have almost a whole week with their sweet grandson.

My work is stressful as could possibly be...but I'm doing well.  I feel like I am finally in my groove, a year after I started!  Hopefully that will continue :)

Now that we are in our home, have the internet again, and are getting settled, I promise to blog more often.  I miss you guys!
