I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! Mine was absolutely incredible!
Christmas Eve outfit complete with my new owl rain boots from my aunt!
Matt kept the biggest secret from me! Mason usually wakes us up by nibbling on us and purring. On Christmas morning, Matt loosely tied a note around his neck that asked the best question.
Our sweet baby boy who helped in such a big way!
I proceeded to begin shaking like crazy and even asked him if he was serious! I had absolutely no idea it was coming. Matt even customized the ring, and my gosh it is so beautiful!
He didn’t even stop there. He surprised me with an adorable owl tote bag, pillow, and mug PLUS three pairs of TOMS! He spoiled me so much!
Christmas morning bowl of oatmeal and delicious coffee in my new mug.
First photo together as an engaged couple. <3
We celebrated Christmas at his mom and step-dad’s.
Appetizer plate with our deviled eggs, his mom’s stuffed mushrooms (she used gf crackers too; so sweet!), celery, and tomatoes.
I could never grow tired of that smile.
Our wonderful dinner: ham, berry applesauce, pineapple, homemade broccoli-pea salad with pom seeds, and curry coconut mashed sweet potatoes (recipe to come!).
I splurged big time ($45 worth O_o) on a gf pumpkin cheesecake. It was great, but man it is rich!
Is this not one of the cutest mugs ever and so appropriate for me! His mom found it! Chai tea and 1/16th of the cheesecake. We have so.much. left.
Modeling both of my new mugs. 🙂
We tested out our new selfie stick from his mom. =D
One new owl spoon rest from his mom!
Owl candle holder.
Another beautiful owl spoon rest from my soon-to-be sister-in-law!
This melts my heart.
Constant Comet tea latte.
Van’s blueberry waffles topped with monterey jack cheese, spinach, and hard-boiled egg on one / mashed avocado and hard-boiled egg on the other and sprinkled with dill and paprika. Cuties on the side.
Matt had quinoa toastables with the same toppings and a navel orange.
Now I need to get ready because I’m going to get my ring sized and do some shopping with my gift cards!
