I'm Back!?

Hey ya'll!! Harvest is winding down here in the Central Illinois region and if you've been watching the weather reports its cold! Not just here, chances are that you too are getting a pre-winter freeze on!

Jon and I just got back from our first official (real) vacation! We finally went away for a week! We've been together nearly 7 years and officially married for 4 years now and we've never taken more than 3 days vacation. Those include our first trip to Six Flags, St. Louis (2 days) while dating, our "honeymoon" to Galena, IL (3 days) and our first anniversary to St. Louis (3 days). 

We went to Williamsburg, VA! I have been there before, about 13 years ago and one of my brothers and his family live in Newport News, VA. We did get to spend a day with them (they all had Tuesday, Nov. 4 off of work and school because of the elections!). 

We did so much last week! It was a wonderful experience for us and we were so grateful to finally get to have this experience together!

Thanksgiving is fast approaching, aka next Thursday! Eek! I'm on deck to make the traditional deviled eggs! I became the official deviled egg maker after my grandma passed because I got the recipe and it truly is an art even if you know the recipe!

That is all for right now, hopefully, I can get back to posting more again!

Fall 2014

Fall 2014

I'm loving the look of chunky knits, plaids, and boots! Hopefully, I will be able to add plaid and more knits to my wardrobe and to step up my boot game (it's very depressing right now)!
