Our Christmas

a few highlights from our Christmas:

*Harper (who just turned 2) was more excited about unwrapping everyone’s presents than her actual presents. she LOVES her new Dora book from her grammy and her other fave. is her new big bird puppet.

*Harper also got 2 personalized CDs from her Aunt Keli from she thinks it is pretty funny that Elmo knows her name! the Fun Time Nursery Rhymes is really good too. i love how the guy sings songs and talks to Harper–so so funny!

*John and i got each other a new Blue Ray player that streams Netflix movies. this weekend we watched Food, Inc and Mongol. Mongol was fascinating…especially if you are into Genghis Khan. (we are!!) we plan to spend the next week laying in bed and watching movies.

*Rexford (almost 8 months) started crying whenever Harper would open a present. i really think he was jealous. he didn’t get much, but will probably get spoiled next year.

*we had super yummy lasagna and meatballs for our Christmas day dinner thanks to MIL! what did you have?

*it was my first Christmas in 2 years to NOT be pregnant and i drank 3/4 bottle of Pinot Noir on Christmas Eve!

Hope your Christmas was as wonderful as ours. blogging will be sporadic this week. i am taking time to spend with family and possible going on a quick road trip up to New Hampshire to look at land!

xo, shari

Merry Christmas!






Merry Christmas! i hope you all have a wonderful celebration.

we are having Christmas Eve at our house tonight. here is a copy of my grocery list:

horshradish – extra hot horshradish
roastbeef (how much and thinly sliced??) 2 LB should do it
kaiser rolls? what kind of buns (how many?) 8 rolls
provolone (how much?) 1 LB
meats? what kind – typically pepperoni but I am trying not to eat that stuff
crackers? – triscuits, whatever else you like
beef gravy (what kind?) FRANCO AMERICAN or HEINZ

we keep it simple on Christmas Eve and will be having these!

my husband and i finished our Christmas shopping this morning with a trip to Best Buy, the movie theater, and so, i am off to wrap presents and clean the floor. i already have the CD player on with this CD which is really festive for Christmas/NYE parties!

later tonight i will be posting contest winners so stay tuned!

show us your BABY BUMP

these pictures were taken at 30 weeks, I’m now 36 weeks. We’re having a boy and a girl (our first and second babies!)

I haven’t had any cravings, but I have had a *ton* of aversions. Curry, onions, spicy peppers. Grody. The only thing I’ve really wanted since getting knocked up is a bloody mary. My husband promised he’d make me one in the recovery room 🙂

I kept exercising and spinning through the beginning of my third trimester. During my last spin class I looked like a circus bear on a bicycle. If you have to move your legs out of the way of your belly, it’s probably time to get off the bike.


thanks, Niki-only 4 weeks to go! i cannot believe there are 2 in there, you look great! (your nail polish is beautiful – where can we find this perfect color?) a bloody mary in recovery sounds like a super idea!!

p.s. i have received sooo many adorable pregnancy photos….and will be featuring one of you every Thursday so check back!! if you want to be featured send your photos and pregnancy details to
