2013 Already?

My Truths About New Years:

1. Towards the end of every December I say the same thing, "where has the year gone" or "I can't believe a new year has come so fast.
2. It will take me 2-3 months to write 2013 instead of 2012.
3. I will make some reference to something along the lines of "wow it's 2013" about 30 times in January. If you did the math, yes that's every day of the month except for one. 
4. I never make new year resolutions. 
5. I never make plans for New Year's Eve until about 1 week prior. 
 6. Like every woman I look forward to all of the sales. 

   Originally our plans included driving to Switzerland for a few days. After researching we decided against it because they will probably have snow and we'd have to drive through many mountain roads. So since it is our last new years in Italy we decided to stay local. We are going to one of my favorite restaurants for a special 7 course dinner complete with gifts and fireworks at midnight. Needless to say, I am stoked and counting down the days. 

   Everyone knows that New Year's Eve is the time to dress up and get dolled up. I have a white tulle dress with a touch of gold, that has been hanging in my closet (w/ tags) for almost a year. Instead of buying something new I just went shopping in my closet, which turned out to be a great idea. Just because I already have an outfit doesn't mean I can't obsess and dream and wish upon a star to wear one of these lovely high fashion dresses.

  1. Really nice dresses. I love Aqua by Aqua dresses and I have good few of them. The beige one with gold is just amazing.

Post Baby Body...Planning Ahead

I'm over half way to meeting our new little princess! At this stage in the pregnancy I'm also thinking about anything and everything having to do with a 3rd child and all the changes that will be happening in my house. Quite honestly, I'm freaking out a little. Of course I'm doing all the typical things parents do when prepping for a new arrival, but I've also decided to take the time to focus on myself while I still can. 

   27 weeks pregnant, which means in 13 weeks or less I will be meeting our new tiny princess. One of the things women typically worry about with pregnancy is the ever so dreaded weight gain that comes with the territory. I can happily say that I've done extremely well with this pregnancy and so far only had a 12 pound gain. But as we all know, the 3rd trimester tends to have the largest weight gain. Since I probably won't have a ton of extra down time once the baby arrives, I've decided to go ahead and start planning to lose the ba…

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...



1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…

Warming The Soul

The weather has been viciously cold in many parts of the United States this winter. If you are anything like me, that means hot delicious soup to warm the mind, body and soul. Soup is a comfort food staple and I feel like people are more drawn to it between October and March, that's especially true for my family. With Florida weather it's just almost too hot for soup any other time of year unless is storming and chilly out.

   Pinterest is my absolute favorite place to find new recipes, so I wanted to share a few of my soup pins with you. I've made all of these except one, which I'll make a note of below, and they've all turned out delicious.


1). Crab & Corn Chowder- This soup is absolutely delicious and hearty. For me, it was something different and unexpected. Growing up in Kentucky we didn't make soups like this, mom always served chili, potato, or broccoli cheddar soup because those are the southern specialties. If you make any of these soups, please …
