Hello Everyone! I'm back in the blogging world! How was your Holiday? Mine was wonderful! I thought I'd share some of the highlights with you. On Christmas Eve we went to my parents house after church and my in laws came too! My mom always makes their house look so warm and inviting for the holidays!

On Christmas Day, my husband and I did our Christmas in the morning (just the two of us). Then we went to his parents house then back to my parents house for dinner. My brother cooked dinner again and It was delicious! He even made home made bread!
 My husband, Jason got me some fun patterned tights. I'm sure you'll see more of those in a later post!
 This is the best gift of all! Jason had a mug made with my Thrift and Shout logo on it!
 I got Jason a special bowl to eat his beloved Ramen Noodles in!
 and some fingerless gloves- his fav!
 My gifts from Jason! I am also really excited to use my new leather hole punch to make all those thrift store belts fit me perfectly!
