Between work and my boys, I was in desperate need for a girls night. So I decided to host a holiday wine and cheese party. I asked all the girls to bring a bottle of wine to share for a wine tasting competition. We numbered brown paper bags and did a blind taste test, ranking each bottle on these little score cards I made. Winner got a surprise little gift from me.

Our bedroom has been a work in progress and we still have quite a bit left to do. One of the first things I wanted to add (after the bed, of course) was a rustic bench. We have a pretty large master bedroom and the bench could really help fill the space...and of course provide a place to put on our shoes. I put my husband to work.

Nothing puts me in the Christmas spirit quicker than receiving holiday cards from friends and family near and far. I just absolutely love them! Last year, I taped all of our cards to the refrigerator (since we didn't have enough magnets) and it ended up looking pretty cluttered. So this year, I wanted to hang them someplace I could enjoy them throughout the whole season.
