Keeping Up with the Capra's: Holidays in Full Swing and a New Family Member!

Happy Friday!
Thanksgiving is over, and Christmas is on it's way... the holiday season is in full swing!
It's easy to get a little stressed this time of year, but I'm always so bummed when everything is over.

1. Thanksgiving Day!

Jon and I had a fabulous Thanksgiving day. We went to my parent's and hung out with the kiddos while we watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and then we headed to Jon's parent's to eat! We had two whole turkeys to eat between the six of us 😱

2. Home Prints

Found a $0.99 frame at a thrift store for my home print from Sweet Little Ones Shop! I have been looking for the right size for a while. I hung it right over my desk and right across from my couch/coffee table where I do most of my work. This print was such a sweet reminder for the Thanksgiving Season! On the hunt for a Christmas one; might have to get another once from Sweet Little Ones (her Christmas prints are so cute!!)

P.S. all profits from her shop go towards her family's adoptions!

3. Ear piercings with the birthday girl

Andie has been counting down the days until she turned 10... because that's when she can get her ears pierced! And to celebrate, Amy and I got more piercings too;)

4. Our Newest Family Member!

Ok... this is my most exciting news to share with ya'll...
Well... a DOG mom!! ;)
She was a spur-of-the-moment decision, but we just fell in love with her as soon as we met her. She's a two-year-old pit/bull terrier mix, and she's precious. I'm not a dog/animal-lover. But she might make me one;)

Meet Penny!!

  4. I love your blog, but I'm just wondering where do you think starts laziness and stops trusting God? With your pace you have a chance of graduating in like the next decade. I have friends who are married and some of them even have children and they are still able to be in full time degree.

  5. Your Thanksgiving festivities look so great! Yay for earrings and sister time! So glad that you got a dog! You are gonna love being a dog parent!

    Thank you so much for linking up at Grace + Lace!
