New Life

Hope everyone had a great Sunday. 
My weekend was pretty low key, but with one big event!
I'm ready for this week to get started because everyday that passes means I'm closer to Winter Break and a full 2 weeks off of work!!! Woot woot!

 I brought out the new shoes Friday and Saturday. The weather last week was crazy! It was in the 70s on Thursday and Friday so Friday night was spent letting my feet out and showing off some cute flats I picked up at Old Navy during Black Friday. I'm in love. I'm already making plans to order more around Christmas. Hopefully there is a nice after Christmas sale that I can take advantage of! I had also been looking for Cognac riding boots forever. I've probably mentioned it once or twice. But I finally got them! Avenue is a plus size website that caters to my lovely calves. They are super comfy and I'm so glad they go with most of my wardrobe. I think I may have to get another pair in black.

Excuse my grainy pictures lol. I spent most of my Saturday in the hospital. I was supposed to go to the ACC Championship game (Florida State vs Duke) but I found out very early that my friend Sabrina was giving birth! 10 days early!! The last time I had been to the hospital in Charlotte was when my other niece was born 6 years ago. So trying to find the right place was quite a journey. The 8th floor was so elusive that only 2 elevators could get you to it, and we pretty much found every single one that didn't. It was such an accomplishment when we were able to click the elevator button and make it to the maternity floor!

Welcome Sebastian Joel to the world! He is so cute and has a head full of dark black curly hair. At 21 inches long he is all legs and I already can tell he is going to be tall like his dad. I was so proud of my friend Sabrina. It's so crazy to see her as a mother. Now she is always going to be a 2 person deal whenever I want to hang out. But I'm so excited for her journey. The hospital was beautifully decorated for the holidays and even Santa made an appearance that night. I thought the Christmas trees in all the waiting rooms were gorgeous. I wish I could get my tree to look like that. Blue and green actually looks really nice together. A mental note for my mother. She changes her color scheme for the tree every year and I think this one would be nice.

Sunday was really lazy. It was cold and a bit rainy. I prepped food for the work week and made a delicious dinner. If you haven't tried the Kraft Seasoning Packets you really should. I made some Southwest Chipotle Chicken that was tasty. I'm looking forward to leftovers! Football was pretty crazy. A huge storm hit the north and it was snowing almost everywhere north of Virginia. You could barely see the players or the field during the Eagles game. Constant flow of snow the whole game. I felt so bad for the players. I makes me think how crazy it is for the Super Bowl to be played in NJ. There is definitely a possibility for it to be like that during the game. It's New Jersey after all.

Happy Monday!
