30 before 30 - Month Five Recap

write letter to family or friend

 Since I sent out several Christmas cards, I decided that would count as my  letter(s) for this month.

Of all the cards I received this year, the one from my friend Danielle was the most unique.  She has a 14 month old daughter (who is adorable!) and she used her footprint to make a snowman for the seal on the back of the envelope.  So cute!

3 monthly goals 

1) Send out Christmas cards by Dec. 18.  DONE!

2) Finish 5 pages in Year Two scrapbook.  This one is gonna have to get pushed over to January.  There just wasn't enough time in December to get it all done!

3) Do something for myself.  I didn't do this in a way that I expected I would when I made it a goal, but I feel satisfied in saying I did it.

facetimes with Brinley

Jordan called me one day in early December when I was working late for a facetime with Brinley.  She was as cute as could be just looking at me and trying to grab the phone.  She is a doll!!  Getting to be such a big girl though!

We only did one facetime this month because I am home for a little over a week now for Christmas. Seeing Brinley in person is a million times better than facetime could ever be so that was ok with me :)

Date Night 

Chris surprised me with a fun date night this month.  Upon my arrival to Albany one weekend, Chris told me he made reservations for us at my favorite spot in town - Albany Pump Station!  Not only did he surprise me with dinner reservations, but he also had the sweetest card and some goodies for me as well!  I loved the cute little penguin and yummy chocolates he had for me!  He is the best!

Girls' Night

On December 17, Amanda hosted a cookie swap.  We had so much fun!  I made peanut butter no bake cookies.  They were so easy to make, and I think people liked them pretty well.  There were so many tasty treats at the party! 

My Peanut Butter No Bake Cookie...
All the cookies...I could only taste a little bit of each one cause there were SO many!!
All the ladies minus our FABULOUS hostess who was behind the camera :)
A few of my close friends at the party - Reba, Hostess Amanda, me, and times!
Hope you all have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

  1. I ove the idea of a cookie swap! How fun!

  2. Looks like girls night was a blast! I didn't get to do a cookie exchange this year, so I'm definitely putting it on the list for next year! :)

    Merry, Merry Christmas!!
