It’s been awhile since my last post – between the eight or nine holiday get togethers we had starting last Friday I have had literally zero time to get anything done. On top of that I caught a cold during all of that and have been down the past two days alternating between sleeping and binge watching Ultimate Beastmaster (check it out on Netflix!) and the Jurassic Park series.

Pregnancy colds take you down hard. This is my second one and I’ll be really pumped if I don’t get another. The first night I don’t think I had an hour and a half of consecutive sleep. Between rolling around because I couldn’t breathe and everything ached to having to go to the bathroom every hour because a certain little someone is starting to press on my bladder and getting woken up by my husband because I’m snoring horribly loud now – I have been absolutely miserable the past two days. Today I’m a little better than yesterday, so I figured I could suck it up for an hour and get a post up, but then it’s back to the couch to binge watch something else. 🙂

Ireland Travel Guide

IMG_1089

It’s hard to believe that its been two months since we were coming home from Ireland; the holidays are sure taking their toll on Father Time!

We spent a total of nine days in Ireland, making a loop around the island from Dublin to Galway to Killarney to Cork to Kilkenny and back up to Dublin – with all kinds of stops in between! It was a roller coaster from day one (technically day 0 because we spent most of our departure flight day driving to the airport), but we had a blast. Ireland is a gorgeous country with so much history, we couldn’t possibly do it all. But try, we did. 🙂

We ended up driving ourselves – and by that I mean my dear, sweet husband tried his hardest to keep calm driving through roundabouts three times while I’m holding onto my seat, praying we make it – and we’d totally do it again. Honestly, it really wasn’t that bad. I think our saving grace was that we picked up the car in Dublin at the airport and immediately got out of the city and on our way to Galway and then we turned the car in when we got back to Dublin. Driving through the majority of Ireland is a piece of cake. Dublin, not so much.

We attended our first Christmas dinner of the season this past Sunday. Where is the time going?! Because it’s still early in the season this was a casual get together, I opted for jeans and a tunic rather than a fancy outfit.

As concerned as I was about the metallic tunic being scratchy or stiff, it wasn’t at all and I was pretty surprised. The material is super comfy with just a faint shimmer to it. I may have to get it in a couple more colors (it comes in 9!).

Growing up my mom always did cookies for Santa. We’d all help make the cookies and then set them out before bed. We even left Santa a special note and Santa would always respond. 🙂 It’s been a tradition I am absolutely looking forward to sharing with my children.

Since I’m the oldest, I’m crossing my fingers that Mom hands me down our plate that we used since I was little, but for now I can wait. I picked up a super cute set from TJMaxx this year and purchased an additional set for todays’ giveaway!
