I got to meet my newest niece and see lots of family. And shop. and eat. and eat some more. And have no one to get ready but me. And sleep completely through the night and read and watch the movies on the plane. It was glorious.

This is completely unrelated and not even from my trip but my TJMaxx got the Anthropologie pots in and they are only 3.99. I couldn’t resist.

It's so good to be back with my family but I'm tired. And I want some Kneaders raspberry bread pudding. They only had apple when we went.
What on earth should I make for dinner tonight??

  4. Welcome back! Beeeautiful baby! I get to visit Texas next week to see some family and I'd be lying if I didn't say I'm looking forward to not having to dress and feed kids. I get to read a book for ME on the plane!! :)

  5. I just found those same tin pots at my TJMaxx...they didn't have "2" so I bought 1, 4, 3 ("I-LOVE-YOU"...taught my hubby the code:)) for my kitchen window.
    PS...I hope that gorgeous hydrangea survived the snow. That purple is so pretty!

  6. Your niece is absolutely adorable!

  7. What a fun trip! Wasn't that snow the craziest thing? Those pots are amazing!!! So glad you had a nice trip.


  8. I could have cried Monday morning when I woke up and saw that it was snowing...and not lightly, like January snow! When I took my kiddos to school I had to put the traction control on in my car because the roads where completely snowpacked!!! We got 3" at my house!! Luckily my flowers and vegetable garden all survived, as did our momma robin and her 3 eggs in our tree! :) Looks like a fun trip! I'll have to try the raspberry bread pudding! A kneaders is only 1.5 miles from my house! (yes, I know the mileage! love me a turkey avocado sandwich!) Beautiful little niece!! Welcome Home!

  9. We had snow here too (Idaho) on Saturday! It was amazing! So glad you had a good time and I AGREE I wouldn't of been able to resists those either.

    Hugs, The Lady of the House

  10. OH my -- is that your sweet Bub in the suitcase?! That picture is ADORABLE!! :)
