Sitting at the airport ready to get back to my peeps in mn.😍 had a wonderful time with in-laws and out-laws (haha) for a few days.😊 time to get back to reality and make sure everything is ready for christmas day.🎅 i'm going to be scrambling for a few days.🎄are you all ready and kicking back enjoying the season?
This nutcracker is really special to me.🎄we bought this for my husband's grandmother who collected them.🎅when she passed we inherited it. so it's only fitting that he stand by our tree.🎄i feel like a piece of oma is with us. .............

are you going anywhere for the holiday?
I had such a "fun" time trying to get a picture of our pantry.📸 there is a light above the sign that i turned off for the picture. this is seriously one of my favorite spots in the house.😍a few years ago my husband took all the wire racks out and built the cabinets & shelves. we put granite tops in to match the kitchen and it doubles as extra work space. now you can see why i love it!❤
what is a favorite room in your home?
My living room is currently filled with my kids and it doesn't look all clean like this and you know what? i wouldn't trade it for anything.🎄we just had dinner and i'm feeling f*t and content.🤣 hope you are having a wonderful sunday evening.😘
what is your favorite christmas commercial this year? i like the singing @amazon boxes.❤
The chili is in the crockpot, brownies in the oven & a cheese plate in the fridge. the kids are on the way over and i am ready to win some games! 😊
tom and i had his christmas work party friday night.🎄it was casual this year which was nice. we made the rounds and then snuck out and went to dinner.👍please tell me we aren't the only ones who do this.
Small business shopping today...am i off a weekend? 🤔 there is a cute little shop 🏡 that is only open once a month and my husband and i always love to go. @hauptantiek 💖 i feel in love with this antique ornament display. hmmm...ideas for next year? 🤣😍 now off to the wonderful world of target for stocking stuffers! 🎄 double tap if target is your ultimate go to!
Happy friday! it finally arrived.😊
i got my kitchen cleaned up so i thought i would show you the heart of our home.❤this is where i have been wrapping presents🎁where every saturday morning my husband makes our breakfast, that usually includes bacon🥓where every sunday we eat potluck style and make cookies🍪where the kids sit and have a conversation while i'm doing the dishes.🍽
welcome to our kitchen. have a wonderful day!☕
I getting presents wrapped today! 🎁i had to call my son and ask him where i ordered a gift from.😂i have lists and still managed to forget where it was coming from. are you a list person? how do you stay on track? help me. 😁
did you know that our lips don't have sweat glands? i guess i never thougt about it. so it's really important to keep our lips hydrated. i have been using this for a few weeks now (i wanted to test it out) and i can say that it works. living in mn the winters get pretty brutal and my lips take a beating. i have not had any trouble with chapping and they stay moist. the spf 30 protects them from the wind and sun, too! thank you @aubiolifesciences for sending this to me to try out for you. #sponsored

these words hit home with me today especially in this holiday season.🎄 it seems that even going to the grocery store can be so stressful for some.😢 i hope all your plans go perfectly, but if they don't...
just relax and enjoy each friend and loved one around you.😍 being together is the perfect plan.
and don't forget to smile😊...you never know what someone is going through. your smile could be the highlight of their day. 😘
boots @northface 💕you can shop all my looks above.
It's snowing a bit again this morning and we still have some on the ground from last time...so i'm thinking there is a good chance for a white christmas.❄🎄❄
i received a box of the most beautiful panties, bras and sleepwear from @adoreme. they have lots of gorgeous sets and great sales going on right now. whether you are looking for a special gift (have a bridal shower coming up?) or need to clean out your undie drawer...you know who you are...holding on by a thread 🤣you will be impressed with #adoreme. i promise. 😘 #ad 🎄🎄🎄
do you fill stockings for christmas morning?
