The last week or so

We have been super busy the last week or so.  My mom was in town for a week and if we weren't out finishing up Christmas shopping, we were baking, playing cards or glued to the computer to play this ridiculously addictive game:
 I was stuck at Level 27 for three days straight and now I'm stuck at 34....but I can't stop. I need someone to come stage an intervention. ;)

Here's a few pics from the last week all courtesy of my trusty iPhone:
 Me and the fam enjoying some Christmas lights
 My daughter with the reindeer pops she made (thanks, Pinterest!)
 Driving around the Holiday Festival of Lights at James Island County Park

 My son with a few of the Lego sets, stickers, books, etc he got for Christmas
I have been putting Lego sets together everyday as I am the designated Lego builder in the house... It's been working out well though, "Mommy will build you one set and then I get to play Candy Crush after, okay??!"

Hope everyone had a great holiday!!

Tuesday Randoms

Good Morning!
So nice to wake up to it being 66 out!  Especially since all my friends back home in Texas woke up to it being 27.  Brrrrrrrr.

A couple of weeks ago I won my first giveaway from Sarah Vickers' blog Classy Girls Wear Pearls...I was pretty excited because I won this amazing bracelet from Kiel James Patrick's Vickers' Bow Collection:
How cute is that??!
If you follow me on Instagram (seabattle2), you probably have already seen this, but did you see that KJP himself liked it and commented with cute little emoticons??! fan girl moment.
Anyway. There are many other bow bracelets so go check them all out here! 
As I was driving my daughter to school this morning, the local radio station was playing things that had gone viral during the past year on youtube...
How did I miss this???!
How's everyone's Christmas shopping going?  This is the first year in a long time, that (1) I'm not done already and (2) I keep wanting to buy things for myself.  There are just so many cute things out in stores...but I am being good.  So far I have not bought myself anything!!
Have a good day y'all!

Trip to Miami and Key West

I'm a total blog slacker.
We decided to skip the traditional Thanksgiving this year and head south to Miami and Key West.

South Beach:

 Miami Zoo:

 Our quick stop to the beach in Fort Lauderdale...It looks pretty but the beach was actually pretty dirty. It was gross.
 Key West:

 Above was at Smathers Beach, Key West. They bring the amazing sand in from the Bahamas! It was the best sand evvvver!!!

Hope y'all are having a great week!
