Happy 2016!

I can't believe we are already into to January! Crazy how time flies. The Hubby and I have been super busy with the holidays and everything going on the past couple months.

The Hubby and I have some exciting news. We are expecting in June, so I've been pretty absent from blogging because I've been so tired. That first trimester really kicks some rear end! I think I was asleep each night by 7:45 or 8. That was laying down or sitting up! 

We are super excited and can't wait to find out what we are having! 

I was really tired this year, so I decided to put up my smaller tree. The cat's didn't mind, they love to lay under the tree. 



Which means, when there are zero presents, we wake up to the tree skirt being in weird places because they decide to fight over who can lay under there!

I think we attended 4 different Christmas parties this year! I was wore out after that! We got a ton of great stuff for us and baby! 

Indiana decided to have weird weather for Christmas this year. We didn't have a white Christmas, because it was in the 50's!



It was really strange Christmas day, but that didn't stop Socks from getting cold and retreating to the covers! It's so funny to randomly see lumps in the beds... it's usually a Socks cat!

While the Hubby was off on Christmas break we decided to do some fun things. For the past couple years, we have attended the Pacer game right before Christmas, so we went again this year. It's always a fun time!



We also decided to do a mini-getaway and went to Fort Wayne to stay the night and attend a Mad Ants game. They are the NBA D-league team that feed into the Pacers. I got a great deal on tickets through Groupon!



We had a great time just getting away and spending time together, and we also got to try a new restaurant. 



It was called 800 degrees. They cook your pizza in a wood burning oven. It was super yummy! 

In anticipation for our new addition I took a trip down memory lane and went through all my childhood books. I have a ton of the Golden Books! I LOVE to read and I hope the baby takes over that love. 


It was so much fun to look in the covers and see the date I received the book. Some of them were from 1987... talk about old! HA-HA! Of course Bella had to inspect the books and see what was going on.

We are so excited for what 2016 holds. Last year was an amazing year, but 2016 is setting up to be the best yet! We hope that you and your families have a great 2016 as well!

Until next time,

Kara

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!


I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:



Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Songs I am Obsessed With Right Now

Maybe I am the only person, but when I hear a song I like on the radio I kind of get obsessed with it. I just want it to come on all the time! Or I go home and YouTube it over and over!

Here are a few of the songs I love right now!

This song by the Chainsmokers is awesome. It has such a great beat and it's always on the radio right now!



Dan and Shay are a great country duo, but From the Ground Up is such a beautiful song. I absolutely love it.

Florida Georgia Line has never put out a bad song. It took me a few times for me to get into this one, but I really like the song. It's another I love to sing when it comes across the radio (which is quite a bit).

I hope you enjoy your day! 

Until next time,

Kara

Mixed Feelings for Sure...

I am not one to post much about politic things. I think it's best just to keep my mouth shut about how I feel about politics, because it just starts arguments between friends.

Well Donald Trump will be our 45th president. I have so many mixed emotions about this...

I am scared for the possibilities that he brings with no experience. I am scared that the people who got out and voted were fueled by hate, not change. That they were scared because they are getting left behind by technology, scared because people with education are bypassing them for more opportunities, that social norms are changing and it's not acceptable to them.

I am scared that people think it's okay for Donald to have mocked a disabled reporter, to have said demeaning things about women and it be okay, to be openly hateful to people of other cultures and that being considered American pride.

I want a world for my daughter to be kind, accepting, understanding. We are not all the same, we have different opportu…
