Wisteria by Ecsuash on Polyvore.com
It is officially Christmas Day and after a day of family, friends and food I am enjoying a quiet night before the first Snow Storm of the year!

One of my favorite shops for home décor is Wisteria. They have everything from the best tote bags to magical mirrors and luxurious throws. Their attention to detail on all of their products makes everything a great buy!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and Happy & Healthy New Year!

Wednesday of this past week I had a small surgical procedure done, nothing big. But with recovery comes comfort and what better of an excuse to indulge in some yummy comfort food!
Since I am also forbidden from the gym for at least a week I know that I cannot go overboard so choosing my comforts wisely has been a challenge but fun!
What are some of your favorite comfort foods?

Now that I have mentally prepared myself for these potential circumstances, I find that I have a better approach into the getting pregnant/pregnancy world. Motherhood is a club that I hope to join next year so any, even if traumatizing, information is welcome!

For dining out I use Restaurant.com to get wonderful deals on some great restaurants. The bonus on this website is that my husband and I don’t feel as guilty dining at fine end places or just trying out a new restaurant because we usually save at least $50.00 per meal!
Happy Holidays & Happy Shopping!

Yes, it is December 1st and 56 degrees outside but for anyone living in New England it is understandable that the weather never fits the season. It snows in April, it is warm in the winter, and it rains on your wedding ;) Yet as it turns the first day of December today I still cannot help but think back to the days when I was a little girl when winter was all about sledding, hot chocolate and movies in front of the fire. As we grow up and enter the “big girl” working world I feel as though this is often forgotten. Weekends of what used to be sledding, now turn into home repairs and dinner dates (not that I am complaining because I love to dine out). The weekends fly by and before you know it winter has come and gone. I remember last year thinking that it never actually felt like Christmas. It sounds like a sad comment but everything in my life at that time was wonderful. I just seemed to have missed the fact that my tree was up and my house was decorated!
I guess as we continue to grow up it is important to literally stop and smell the roses, and as for the winter… stop and make that snow angel followed by a big cup of hot chocolate in front of the fire! This winter I will be sure to trade the pumps in for snow boots and dedicate myself to take-in all of the nostalgic opportunities that winter has to offer. This includes taking the time to catch-up with all of my friends, even if it means writing out a few extra special holiday cards this year!
Although I might not be sledding with my all of my beloved friends this winter, I will be making snowmen with my husband and throwing snowballs with my puppies. Oh and yes, I will be having some "big girl" hot chocolate too!
