What I am Lovin' Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday! Today I am going to share with you what I am lovin' today! If you'd like to link up & join in on the fun, you can head on over here

A few weekends ago, we got our family pictures taken & I LOVE them so much! I met Caitlin (our photographer) when she & her then fiance hired me to shoot their wedding. Caitlin is going to school for photography & I was so excited that she said yes to shooting our family! You can see more of your pictures by clicking here

We had a tiny little elf boy come to live at the Lacy house. Please meet Buddy - named after Buddy the Elf from one of our favorite movies. I was pulling to name him Duncan after Duncan's Toy Chest from Home Alone 2 but Addy nixed that idea. Bummer!

Little Buddy decided to perch on the bathroom counter & wrap himself in TP. Addison thought it was hilarious!

I am really loving my new curling iron. It is the Hot Tools 1 1/2 inch barrel.

I grabbed it at Ulta a few weeks ago & it works fantastic! It is what is use to make the long curls like in the picture below. 

It is on sale on the Ulta website & there is free shipping right now!


Do you use Ebates? I just signed up this week & I have already made like 6 bucks shopping online! When you go through their website to shop at your favorite stores, they give you cash back! Isn't that cool? 

It is really simple - you just search for the company you are wanting to buy from, click their link, & shop away! Ebates post the money to your account in just a few days!

I just searched for Ulta & you can get 5% back from them. So if you were eyeing that curling iron - buying it online would be a better deal than in store right now!

Happy Wednesday!

Thanksgiving Weekend 2011!

I hope you all had a blessed holiday weekend! The Lacy's had a mighty fine Thanksgiving weekend. 

The fun started Wednesday night when the kiddos helped Momma make the jello pretzel salad. They were more than happy to help lick the spoons!

I made 3 different Pinterest recipes for the Thanksgiving meal & all 3 were a hit!

Not sure why blogger is making the links all wonky but I wanted to share! They were all so yummy!

Jello Pretzel Salad

Sausage Cream Cheese Rolls

Pumpkin Crunch Cake

The kiddos & I watched the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade while Jason went and played in a Turkey Bowl at a local church.  I was so scared that I was going to get a call from the ER but thankfully, he played & arrived home in one piece. YAY!

We headed down to my grandparents house for our yummy meal!

My dad in his apron - ain't he cute?

Jason was getting some baby love with our new nephew, Todd. Sadly, it did not raise his baby temperature - he is nowhere near baby fevah at all. Wah, wah.

My momma, SIL Tracey, me, & my Grandma!

Mom showing Grandma how to be "sassy".

Grandma giving the sassy thing a shot!

My sweet new nephew!

Mimi was loving on the little Toddster. 

Addison & her BFF (& cousin), Polly! These 2 LOVE each other. 

These 4 all play so well together !

After we ate a delicious meal, there was a lot of football watching going on. Since football isn't really my thing, Jason & I took the kiddos on a walk around Grandpa's dairy. 

After our walk, Uncle Jason took turns spinning each kid & then we played an awesome game of Red Rover, Red Rover. 

I think it's pretty safe to say we are the coolest aunt & uncle evah

We headed home & put the kiddos to bed. I brewed a pot of coffee & started chug-a-lugging because I was getting ready to hit Black Friday!

My girlfriend, Jamie, & I headed to the mall & it was complete insanity. We scored a couple good deals but overall, the crowds were ridiculous. We shopped a few hours & then hit Denny's at 2:30am. 

Check out Jamie's sandwich! It was a grilled cheese with mozzarella sticks inside! It was quite tasty. 

I grabbed this sparkly flats for a steal which made being at the mall at 1:00am worth it. 

I also was quite crafty this weekend & made this Christmas ribbon wreath. I will post the other crafts sometime this week!

Happy Tuesday!

Caaahrazy Week Catch Up!

Well hello there! I keep promising myself that I will be better at posting but this time of year is just plain nutso for me. Bear with me - sporadic posting equals lots of pictures!

So lets see..what has happened lately?

My best friend got married!

We had a girls night full of sushi & fun a few nights before the big day!

Her big day was so much fun! We got our makeup done which was SO much fun! I had never had my makeup professionally done. I loved it - I asked the girl if she wanted to move in & do my makeup every day but no dice. So sad!

The bridesmaids getting ready to line up. 
My dress had pockets in it! I was able to have my iPhone with me so I could snap pictures during the reception. 

Mr. & Mrs. Hammett!

My sister & I at the reception

My homecoming date from 2001! We were recreating our pose. You can't see but I was popping my foot up just like I did all those years back then in our picture. I loved getting to see JP - he is such a fun guy!

Maureen & some of her 'maids!

My bff! So, SO happy for her! Such a fun night!

Sunday morning we woke up & headed to church. Addy made this is in her Sunday School class & I loved it. It says "Don't freck (freak) out God is with you!" Love that little girl. 

Sunday evening we had our family pictures taken & I can not wait to see them! After our pictures, we went to Old Spaghetti Factory down town for an early birthday dinner. 

Spaghetti with brown butter & mizithra cheese. 
Oh lawdy, she is a thing of beauty. I love, love, love this pasta dish. I always get the "hearty helping" so I can eat it for a few meals!

Monday was my 27th birthday! My sweet husband let me sleep in & even took the day off to hang out with me. I love spending time with that man. 

We headed to lunch because I wanted some In-N-Out animal style french fries. Holy smokes, these things are so amazing. Have you ever had them? They start with french fries, add cheese, grilled onions, & their secret sauce. Ah-mazing!!

And since I clearly love food, why stop there with the food pictures? We got a delish cookie cake from Paradise Bakery to top of my birthday evening. 

Today has consisted of watching the Biebs on The Today Show...Addy made a heart with her hands every time he came on. Ha! 

We also made Pioneer Woman's Monkey Muffins for breakfast. These were a hit! Super easy & SO good! I am making them for breakfast tomorrow. And maybe the next day.

We also deep cleaned Addison's room today. I think my 6 year old may be a hoarder. New room rule - for everything you bring in, something must leave. Papers, books, toys, clothes - anything! Too much STUFF. I can breathe a little easier when I walk in her room now. Whew!

And this little guy...

Well, he is just plain adorable. 

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I am so excited to get to watch the parade, eat yummy food (naturally), & just spend time with the people I love.

Happy Thanksgiving!
