I bet you came here thinking I'd have lots of exciting Christmas photos...maybe some yummy food pics...Rocky dressed up in some kind of ridiculous Santa costume....maybe a cute Christmas day #ootd...I am a blogger after all! And these are the type of things we do, right?
I don't blame you-I want to see some of that too when reading blogs!
Apparently being close to 39 weeks pregnant at this time of year has completely taken over my abilities to do such things! This isn't to say we didn't have an amazing Christmas, because it really was awesome (the most relaxing we've had in years, actually), but we are only N-I-N-E days away from our due date and it's completely taken over my mind 110%. Can you blame me? I'm getting really anxious and antsy to meet our sweet baby boy and honestly, I'm a little shocked he isn't here yet! I really thought he was going to be early!
Back to our Christmas break for a minute. Even though we didn't travel anywhere this year, we still had fun just the two of us, and we definitely got our fair share of sleep over the past few days (our last full nights for a while? probably!) We celebrated Christmas with my parents on Christmas Eve like we normally do with a yummy dinner, some games, and they got us this Samsung camera that has been on my list for a while (LOVE the wifi option and it's a great alternative to my dslr that I sometimes don't want to carry around!) Christmas day was spent just the two of us at home...we made a big breakfast, watched Christmas movies all day, exchanged gifts, and had a nice dinner at home. It was really special and even though it was more quiet than usual, I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. The rest of the weekend could be summed up by more relaxation, cleaning the house up (yep-our tree and most of our decorations are already down!), and lots of errands. Now you know why I don't have a lot of pictures because they would probably all look just. like. that... :)
Anyway, I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday with your family! We have another big one to celebrate this week, too, so cheers to that! Every year, before the new year comes, one of my favorite favorite favorite things to do is to look back through the pictures I posted on my blog each month. I love looking back to see all the fun things we did over the year and where we are now! Here are some of my favorite moments from this past year...
not the best pic, but we celebrated Billy's new job...
went on vacation to Siesta Key & made a day trip to Orlando to visit the new Harry Potter park...
traveled to Texas to visit this one for her gender reveal party...
announced our big secret..
visited Charleston, SC!
had some amazing baby showers hosted by my family & friends!
took a week long "babymoon" to Naples as our last trip before baby!
and finally, finished what had been consuming much of our time-Camden's nursery!
You were one of the most exciting years I've had...from some awesome vacations, personal and professional successes, and announcing our pregnancy! I do have faith, though, that 2015 is going to be that. much. better. We can't wait to experience life as parents and see where our adventures takes us to next!
Thank YOU guys for reading, commenting, and being the other half to this blog the past 12 months! I'm so grateful for each of you, and appreciate all the love and support more than you know!
