Where did Christmas go???

This Christmas was one for the books.

My cheeks are still sore from all the smiling and laughing that has gone on over the past few weeks...
there were parties galore, B Family Sleepover on Christmas Eve Eve {fun new tradition}, delicious Southern meals, quality family time, and the list goes on & on!

JWB & I enjoyed our first and last Christmas as a family of two...this time next year we will have a seven month old-say what?!

As fast has Christmas approached us, it left in a hurry...yes I am that girl who has already taken down all of the twinkle & glitter.

I will admit that as FANTASTIC as the holiday season was, I was not as sad as normal when it was all over because we have SO many fun events coming up...

2011 was a year to remember but I have a feeling 2012 is going to be a life-changer.

Coming soon:
JSharpe birthday
a wedding/NYE extravaganza
ouuuuuur baby gender reveal party

stay tuned.

flowers, treats, & a song.

So ladies I have to brag for a second...

When I was 14 I met my soul mate.

I knew then that he was something special, but what I did not know then was that almost eleven years later, he would still be making my knees weak & my tummy full of butterflies.

He is the man that God truly made for me.

I am the LUCKIEST lady in the world because I am his wife.

....just got a beautiful poinsetta delivery, just because.

I love you JWB ;)


Yesterday, momma & me had some fun!!!

We wore our jammies & baked goodies ALL DAY!

{I hope I can be just half as good of a mom as mine has been to my brother & me, she's just the greatest.}

This wknd was full of fun and getting things done around the house...a good balance of the two!

Friday night my parents + me + Kel {JWB was doing the last leg of inventory @ work} headed to the coliseum for a holiday skaters, orchestra, & local celebrities-what more could you ask for?!

...and to end the perfect night we headed to Bone Fish for a late night dinner!

Saturday night me & JWB + Jess & Chad headed down to Chapel Hill for dinner + basketball game.
{ side note, even though i married into a family that bleeds blue, i am NOT a tarheel-i will admit that i had fun however :) }

Sunday we worked around the house and got some things done that we had been putting off for way too long!

Happy 12-12-12!
Have a great week ;)

This morning I had my 15 wk check-up @ the doctor to hear the little baby's heartbeat-swoon.

Everything is looking perfect :)

{jwb has inventory @ work this wk [boo!] so he couldn't come with, thx mom for coming!}

Next visit-gender reveal. eeeeek!

whatever the little peanut may be, we are so pumped.

Christmas Kick-Off

This weekend was perfect.

Friday I was able to enjoy a day that was office-free (thx mom).

...after the hubs got home, we headed to Archdale to have dinner with Lank & Jenny

Me & knee got busy in the kitchen for a down home meal-chicken pie (we fought over the last few bites)/mac-n-cheese/pintos

pregnant girl heaven.

after we got our bellies full we decided to play a new game...OMG so fun & we literally laughed until we cried.

Saturday morning us girls loaded up & heading downtown for the Christmas parade...always a great spot for good, yet scary people watching.

A&T drum line. amazing.

our favorite float!!!

after parade watching we headed to Natty's for lunch & libations.

Saturday night we hit up SR to hear our girl sing [Jaxon Jill]!

{see BFF's blog for pics}

Sunday me & JWB hosted our annual Parade After-Party.

As always, it was a blast!
Yummy food, great company, & a fun evening!

Turkey Trip

This year for Thanksgiving, we packed up the in-laws & out-laws & headed south for Charleston!

Such a fun & memorable trip!!!

We ate, shopped, admired the views, ran a 5K (whoop, whoop), and just enjoyed being together.

__________________________________________ seems like November has come & gone, however, I am not too sad because now it's my favorite time of the year!!!

SO many fun things coming up :)

When people ask...

When people ask me & JWB if we are excited about bringing a little baby into this world, the answer is most definitely YES but it is a million other feelings...

it's curiosity-
what will he or she look like? {green eyes like my hubs please}
what talents will he or she have?
what will be his or her favorite food?
what will his or her personality be like?
will he or she be more athletic or more artistic?
will the baby be a he or she??? :)

it's fear-
will our baby be healthy?
how do you change a diaper? kidding, no really.
how do you instill in your little human solid values & morals?

it's bliss-
creating a baby is a miracle and truly beyond me.
the moment i heard the heartbeat, i fell in love. hard.
it's a feeling i hope everyone gets to experience in their lifetime.

we still have a ways to go before meeting the new member of our family but when our day comes, i can guarantee you he or she will be one loved bebe.

get ready world, a little version of me + jake is comin' atcha :)


I am decorating for Christmas tomorrow.

oh yes.

i love this song.

{insert throwback tune.}

November, excuse me-this year, has FLOWN by.

...I wish time would slow down because it seems everytime we blink, another month has zoomed by.

We've been busy lately with a little bit of this and that...and we are getting very excited about all of the fun events that we have planned to finish 2011 with a bang.


How about a little praise...

Growing bebe :)

Our little baby is just a growing :)

I could not believe how much the little peanut had changed in just 4 weeks!

We got to hear the heartbeat, definitely gave me chicken skin :) :) :)

What a miracle life is.

God is good.

TT still has it.

Travis Tritt did not disappoint.

He most definitely still has it.

He boot-scooted around & sang every single classic that we all love.

Yes our limo had a fireplace :)



Saturday night's wedding shower for David & Katie was a complete success as well.

JWB & I were "A Bun In The Oven" ;)

Fun costumes + great night of catching up with friends = smiles.

Today is my first day at the new j-o-b.

Happy does not even describe how I feel...

I think for the rest of the day...err probably for a long while...I believe I will be soaking up this overwhelming feeling of I am right where I am supposed to be in life.

Let's do a career review.

Corporate America + other conditions led to...
be transfered three different times to three different offices.
three different sets of agents.
three different ways of doing business.
three different occasions of packing up my desk and relocating to the next destination.
can you see the fun in all of this?

A pay cut (thx economy).
A promotion (thank God).

I have learned ALOT personally & professionally.
I have worked with some of the neatest & greatest folks.
I have laughed through it all & I consider that a victory.

Tomorrow is my last day with the company.

Monday begins a new chapter.

Celebrate we will, because life is short but sweet for certain :)
