December Dedication & Pinning

Posted on

With the holidays sneaking up on us (Christmas is LESS than a month away, officially!!!), I couldn’t be more pleased with Janetha’s initation for a DEDICATED DECEMBER.  You can bet I will be participating in the challenge…I just may have a chance to win, considering my ridiculous schedule right now (mainly revolving around basketball and physical therapy!) 

While you’re on Meals & Moves’ site, make sure you wish Janetha a swift recover from her hospital stay and GI issues.  I love that chick and hope she’s feeling better soon.

 Since this is an “update” post, I figured I’d let you know I jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon…and have, shamelessly been planning everything from ideas for my future wedding to ideas for my future home…and everything in between🙂

Here are some of my favorites:

And ohhh so much more…I’ve got a pinboard dedicated to my Bucket List Destinations, too!  If I ever get the opportunity to become a stay at home Mom while my kids are young, I will be doing SO many cool things with them…
