Thoughts for Thursday

Happy Thursday, y'all! I'm linking up with Annie and Natalie to share my smorgasbord of random thoughts this Thursday! 

+ It has been so hard going back to work this week after being off for 11 days! I just am keeping my eyes on the prize: two more weeks until a 2.5-week-long Christmas Break! 

+ Lately I've really had to remind myself that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. However, as Judy Garland so eloquently said, we must also remember to be ourselves and not someone else. 

+ Y'all, I have this serious girl crush on Jessie James Decker! I'm pretty tardy to the party on this, I'm sure, but have y'all watched her Kittenish make-up tutorial? I've linked it below for you to watch when you have some time {it's 27 minutes long!}. I learned a lot from watching this and definitely have it bookmarked in case I need to go back for a refresher. 

+ Now that Walker is eating table food, I've been searching high and low for some healthy, filling meals for his little tummy. I found this guide to be really helpful. And, it has helped me reevaluate what we eat for supper to ensure he can have it! 

I did give him salmon {and sautéed squash + zucchini} the other night and he loved it! Score!

+ Brandon and I have definitely embraced December: we watch a Christmas movie every night thanks to ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas. Here is a helpful link to the full schedule! 

+ Speaking of Christmas, Walker had his first Santa visit on Saturday! This is a screenshot of the picture from the online gallery {shhhhh} because I couldn't wait for the actual ones to come in. ;) He did so great at first and smiled wonderfully! Then, he realized he didn't know this big guy and clawed his way down out of his lap and crawled away quickly! {Isn't our Santa great?!} 

+ My parents are building a house, and we got to tour it when we were home two weekends ago. The house has these amazing windows and a ceiling similar to this one, and just love those two aspects of that house! This pin below has me swooning just a bit. 

+ Liz had me thinking about different ways to wear my denim shirt. I'm really loving this way and am kind of feeling dumb that I didn't think about it myself. Duh!

+ And finally, thank you for your sweet comments about our family portraits + Christmas card! Rhonda is so great and we love her. An early Merry Christmas from our family to yours!



  1. Love all your random thoughts friend!! I need to watch her makeup tutorial ... those are my guilty pleasure!

  2. That picture of Walker in his high chair is too stinkin' cute! I've definitely been watching lots of Christmas movies lately too. Love The Santa Clause movies!

  3. Your family is adorable! And I love Jessie James decker too by finding her recently....I just happen to come across her on Instagram and loved her ever since!
