I've been thinking lately about all the things that I am grateful for this year, and there are TONS of things to list: healthy family, a roof over my head, food in our cupboards, great neighborhood, etc.
One of the things that never fails me though is my amazing friends. I don't even know what I would do without the awesome friends in my life, and I am SO GRATEFUL that I have them! I am so blessed to be surrounded by motivating, supportive, and TALENTED people! I have friends on design teams, I have friends being published in magazines, I have friends being published in books, they're all so crafty and creative and amazing!!!
I went to a secret santa gift exchange last night for my stay at home mom group, and my friend Geena (who CLAIMS she's not so crafty) had her house all decked out with christmas decor. She had a centerpiece on her kitchen table with a glass bowl with dry ice and water so the steam was coming out...and surrounding the bowl were 5 snowmen she made out of socks....it was soooo cute! I'm definitely gonna post a picture as soon as my friend Sandy (hint hint) sends me one =)
Also, my friend Heather just started up a website for her photography. She is amazing, and for those of you that view my blog and are from UTAH....give her a call! Check out her maternity photos, and family photos....beautiful! Most of her gallery is filled with pictures of all of us from our stay at home mom group, and there are even some pictures of my kids in there. Check out her website here.
Christmas is coming wayyyy too fast. I'm not even done shopping, and I'm usually done by Thanksgiving. I havn't wrapped a single gift, the tree is still HALF decorated, havn't made any cookies, and my house is a disaster...but I'm surrounded by the best family and friends life has to offer me, so I'm happy happy happy!
