Oh, hi blog world....

... Do you remember me? Possibly, perhaps?

Ha! Kidding, I make it sound like I have been gone for years. But yes, I feel it has been a bit since my last post ((not including last nights' late update on Olivia-- again please keep her in your prayers)).

So you might be asking yourselves {just pretend you are} "Sam, if you haven't been blogging or taking classes right now, what HAVE you been doing??"

Well friends, let me show you :) 
((prepare for an unnecessary overload of pictures))

I won my very first giveaway! Thanks to the gorgeous Tay Talk!

 

I've been making time for the important stuff. 




I've been hosting and attending multiple Christmas parties...
 


I have been working {nanny-ing} like mad. This job is tougher than you could possibly imagine, but also worth every second. Example, chaperoning my little sisters' dance and doing all the girls hair and makeup beforehand. Priceless. 



{you better believe she gets her "mad" dance skills from me!}

I also have squeezed in a little play time as well!





And of course... You can't forget the Christmas pictures... Oh, the memories. 




Little angels they are...

And of course, I have watched the lunar eclipse. 
{Thanks to my lovely friend, Lindsay. Seriously girl, you are the best!} 




Also, my sisters made me post their "proof" that they stayed up longer than I did while watching the eclipse. Again, little angels..



and THAT my friends.... Is what yours truly has been up to :) 

Again apologies for the picture OVERLOAD... Hopefully you guys aren't too sick of them.

All my love.

-Mallori said...

What do we share the same thoughts about? I'm sure I should be able to catch it, but my head is in a clouded funk :) ...but I agree, some of the things you blog about, I'm like "Yes! It's so true! I feel the same way!"

And thanks, I'm feeling a little better today, just in time to go take family Christmas pictures :D
