Lately + $100 Target Gift Card Giveaway

Craving /// bruschetta and lots of it! Italian bread, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes – campari if I have my choice, basil and lots of balsamic. Oh, yum.
Waiting /// on our Christmas cards from Minted. We took our family photos this weekend and actually got one where we were all looking at the camera. Yep, just one, but one is all you need! Woohoo! Minted has the best designs – it’s a good thing I’m pretty decisive. Now, just to decide if I have the time/energy/desire to write up a Christmas newsletter to tuck into the cards. Do you do cards? Newsletters? Both? What do you like to get in the mail most? Oh, and a little secret … later this week you’ll have the chance to win your own cards from Minted!
Remembering /// all my favorite parts of my childhood holidays. This year is already coming alive for Jemma and I want to do everything + more to see her little eyes light up.
Liking /// these. Well, truly I’m wanting if we’re being honest. Funny story – with Christmas coming Jemma has been adding tons of things to her wish list. Which consists of madly circling pictures in every magazine that arrives and taking pictures with my phone when we are at the store. We’ve curbed the “I want this” and instead have encouraged her to say that she likes things. So, lately everything has been “I weally weally like this!”
Cooking /// nothing. I’m so over cooking and want to get take out every day this week. I’m open to pizza, curry, Chinese, subs … anyone want to sponsor dinner over here? Haha!
And, a few other links to share … 
  • I just ordered my first Erin Condren planner – yep, gettin’ organized around here. My sister has the teacher edition and ADORES it and I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about these planners. I’ve stalled for too long due to the price, but until 12/31/13 if you use code GIFT20 you get $20 off, so I took the leap.
  • I always see lists about questions to ask potential pregnancy care providers, but this one was written specifically for midwifery care – 44 Questions For Your Midwife
  • Raising Daughters – a must read
  • Take a peek at doTERRA’s Christmas catalog – page 9 has a great deal for a little trio of three of my fave oils. It includes peppermint which has worked wonders for Mary’s first trimester symptoms! Want to order wholesale? Contact Jenny.
Last, but definitely not least, I joined in on a fabulous giveaway with a handful of lovely ladies. And by “fabulous”, I mean the chance at a $100 Target gift card, and there is no doubt that Target is the absolute definition of fabulous :) Enter below.

    At least you got one picture with everyone looking at the camera. Or cards are ordered but Mike and I are the only two actually looking at the camera- the boys are just smiling and looking in that direction.

    Honestly? I'd use it toward the purchase of ingredients needed for our big Italian Christmas Eve dinner. We are hosting this year and I have a lot of people to feed.
