Holiday Craft-a-Palooza 2013

It came.
It saw.
It more than conquered.

On Saturday, I hosted the 2nd Annual Craft Night.
And it was awesome.
I mean, planning and preparing and having tons of cancellations was SUPER STRESSFUL
(more on that laterrrrr)
but the party was FANTASTIC!

In a nutshell, I pick four to five crafts from pinterest and I buy all the supplies and all the girls participating split the costs with me and we all bring super yummy goodies and how the pin crafts don't turn out to be pintrocities.

This year we attempted to do the Sharpie mugs again (last years), tassel garlands, felt Christmas trees and Pledge glitter ornaments.
The ornaments were INSANELY easy and such a hit and the girls got really creative with their mugs. Only two girls finished all the crafts, but that wasn't the point.
The point was to have an amazing time, to get into the holiday spirit and enjoy bonding time together

I also bought $1 frames from Dollar Tree and spray painted them and put in this printable that I made for the girls as a gift for coming. I kind of love it and I hope the girls love it too!

Between last year and this year, I'm working all the kinks out and I'm already excited for next year's party.

Holiday Pictures 2013

A few weeks ago, the King and I had our friend, Diane, meet us at the Grand Floridian Resort at Walk Disney World to take pictures for our Christmas cards.

The resort is a replica of a Victorian seaside resort and is home to Disney's wedding pavilion and the perfect place to take pictures with Cinderella's castle. Once again, this year I took more than two seconds to prep my hair and do my makeup. I woke the King up more the 10 minutes before we needed to leave the house so he could primp himself and look "Sooooooo Goood!

We get to the resort, and just like last year's Christmas card pictures, it was raining. Pooooooo.
So that means my hair frizzed and the King and I laughed it off and just made do.
Thank goodness Diane is a miracle worker and managed to capture quite a few pictures of us that more than half way decent.
After pictures we wondered around the resort, debated whether or not we should go into Magic Kingdom or just go home and be lazy.
Neither won out, and we ended up being surprisingly productive and did some Christmas shopping... in November... before Thanksgiving (I know, I know... the horror).

We just got back from Alabama for Thanksgiving, and even though I had my nice camera there, I didn't crack it out once. I took a few photos with my iPhone, but I made it a point to not have it out constantly, so I'll post about the trip, but I'm not promising tons of photos or even good ones at that.

Anyhoooooooo hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are getting into the Holiday spirit!
