Christmas 2017 - We hosted

Since the cold weather has REFUSED to leave, I figured I might as well post about our Christmas since I never did.

Christmas 2017 was our first year hosting Christmas and we had an awesome time! I am one of SIX kids and most of us are married and have kids. So you can imagine how fun it was in the DMV.

Hosting was part of the reason we wanted to finish our basement quickly because we wanted to ensure that we could accomodate as many people as possible and we did.

My sister surprised us by making tees for all the family members. My hubby surprised me by getting cupcakes from my favorite place to share and celebrate with family since we weren't here with family for my birthday. My siblings surprised me with the most generous gifts and overall, we had a great time! We also had Jamie from Jamie Good Photography come take pictures and she did a GREAT JOB!

Here are some pictures from our Christmas celebration.

They started it all. Still looking fly after 42 years!

Celebrating 40

I turned 40 last September and to celebrate, we headed to Freeport, Bahamas the Sunday before Thanksgiving.

I don't know if it is turning 40 that made this trip more relaxing that years but it truly was a relaxing time. We didn't feel rushed. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we almost didn't want to leave!

I have been to Freeport before. It was a stop on a cruise ship 10-years ago. Then, I wasn't so taken by the Island but this trip certainly changed that. So much so that J and I are thinking about going back there for our 10th anniversary celebration.

Here are some pictures from our celebration.


Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!

Yes, I worked out during our trip.

We built sand castles. Brought back beautiful childhood memories.

I felt so relaxed. You can tell from the pictures.

It was such an awesome time and we can't wait to go back.
