Yahoo...I'm Back!

Hello everyone...or anyone (wishful thinking that I still have some loyal followers out there). I know in my last post over a MONTH ago, I mentioned that I was headed to the Dominican Republic for a friends wedding. Well I'm back and as you can tell from the photo below, we had lots of fun :)



After I got back from the Dominican, I worked for four days and then headed for the airport again to spend Christmas and New Years with my family and boyfriend in Palm Springs. We had an amazing time there, it was SO hard to leave. Our main purpose for the trip was to furnish my parents new house so I will have some great before and after posts coming soon.

Because we were only home for approximately five days in December, there wasn't much point in putting up too many decorations. I know I missed the boat on posting holiday decorations but I took the pictures so I might as well post them. Feel free to scroll right through them lol.


I got the doilie idea from the one and only Martha Stewart. Add a little glue to the doilies and they stay stiff.




This centerpiece was from my Mom's house. I was amazed to find out that she made it...out of brillow pads of all things. My Mom is super creative!

On another note, thank you SO much to Amanda at Perfect Imperfections for the award :) You made my day!

I hope everyone had as happy of a Holiday and New Years as I did!

Your mom is brilliant. I could tell the brillow [pads apart but that is such a genius idea and it goes so perfectly with the rest of the holiday decor. :)

I am a new reader to your blog and would love for us to stay in touch via google/ facebook or any other way you prefer.

Look forward to hearing from you

Love
