I got to sendsome of my favorite things to Erika of My Crazy Life. Head over to give her some love! 

My favorite things from top to bottom: a Starbucks giftcard (love me some chai!); turquoise Duck tape; striped mini notebook & colorful pens; dark chocolate with sea salt; pretzel m&ms & a striped scarf. It was lots of fun putting the package together!!!
And, I got to open the gift I received today! It was nice to learn a lesson on delayed gratification! Ha!

My wonderful gift came from the adorable Liz at Teaching in the Valley. She wrote the sweetest little note that put a huge smile on my face. What a cutie pie!

Make sure you give her some love, too!
I absolutely LOVE my gifts!!!! Thanks so much, Liz!

A White Barn chestnut & clove scented candle. It smells ah-mazing...we've had it burning since I opened it. :)

When my daughter saw my polka dot fuzzy socks from Old Navy she about died of excitement. She has similar ones and loves to be a mini-me. So, we've been twins for hours already today. She's already told me that we better wear them to bed tonight. Thanks, Liz, for helping me make more memories with her.


  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family also!

  6. Hi Lisa! What a beautiful famly, you truly are blessed! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

    Your Holly Bloggy Exhange buddy, Liz, lives in my area! The name of her blog caught my eye and sure enough, it's the same "valley" in the Phoenix area. I always love finding new bloggers in my area!

    I hope you're having a restful break and getting to spend some time with your two precious little ones.

  7. All the gifts are so cute!

  8. Adorable family picture! I love the fuzzy socks too. Actually anything sock related is great in my book. I love me some knee-highs with cute boots during the day and fuzzy socks at night. That was a big part of my wish list from "Santa" this year. I hope you're enjoying your break!
