Thanksgiving

Who doesn't just love Thanksgiving? All of that yummy food...eating until you want to burst...pulling out those pregnant stretchy pants just like Joey did on that "Friends" episode - just so you can eat that much more. Lol. Okay, maybe we don't take it as seriously as Joey, but Thanksgiving is always memorable at my house. One thing is for certain, you can always count on my mom making an amazing meal. Ever since I have been married, me and the rest of the women...

Thanksgiving Meal

We all know that with the holidays comes stress from trying to make everything perfect. Okay, maybe that is just me? But I really love to have everything come together just right so I will stress myself out about having everything perfect. Last year I changed everything about how I approached the holidays. I made some serious decisions that started with our Thanksgiving feast. I realized that our holiday traveling really did me in - so that was cut. I realized that...

"Baby, It’s Cold Outside"

 

Have you felt the chill in the air? I decided we needed a NIGHT IN to off-set the cold because....Baby, It's Cold Outside!

I left my husband an invite and a new pair of gloves (since I had made him cut his others for our Halloween Costume.) This pair was on sale at Old Navy for $4, but you could easily find a cheaper pair at Wal-Mart or the Dollar Store. You could leave it with ANY warm clothing (hat, scarf, socks, etc.) or none at all!

Family Fun:

LisaM-CandidPhotoshoot-PinterestPicture

A photo says a thousand words and freezes time for just one moment.
When was the last time you had family pictures taken?  At my house it has become a yearly tradition.  Every Fall we capture very special, extremely candid moments.  Some of my favorite photos end up being the ones we weren't even posing for!  How fun would it be to take this idea one step further by creating a family video. That is just what this inspirational blog did (love this)!...

LisaM-FlatIronCurls-Pinterest

Every girl should "go curly" on her birthday and it just so happens that today my lil' Miss McKenna is turning one year older! You should know that whenever a head of hair gets curled at my house I use a...Da-Da-Dun.....FLAT IRON!!! As a hairstylist, it is absolutely my favorite tool of choice. In fact, it's practically the only electric tool that I use aside from the ultimate must-have, a blow-dryer!
 I have curled lots and lots.....and lots of...

10 Ways to Give Thanks
1. Make a Pumpkin Pie for your husband, with a sweet note in the middle. You can put the note in as you put the pie in the oven. He will be impressed no matter how it comes out!

3. Prepare an extra special dinner made before Thanksgiving with a small turkey and some of the fixings. He will be surprised when...

With the last of the Harry Potter movies coming out, I had to plan something for the occasion! My mom got me reading the books when I was growing up. I did not finish reading the last 3 books until I was SUPER sick during pregnancy with our first child. My husband was so supportive and would go to bed with his tired wifey at 7 o'clock. We would spend the next few HOURS...
