The holidays were busy busy for us so I slacked on posting last week. So sorry! I hope you all had a lovely holiday and got spoiled with presents under your trees!

Here’s a couple of my favorite gifts we received this year:

From E: My pup. Who finally has a name, by the way. We named him


after Knoxville… the city where E & I met. :)

E’s parents got us The Hoover Rewind vacuum. We’d been needing a new vac SOOOOO badly and I love that this one has the automatic cord rewind feature! It makes life so much easier. :)

My parents got us a pair of rocking chairs for our front porch!!! I am so excited to make our little porch so cute and homey. :) I don’t think you understand how obsessed with these rocking chairs I am. E gets the exciting task of putting them together today.

When they are assembled they will sit right here:


It’s going to be super adorable, no? Maybe I will spruce up my little landscaping area this spring as well…

  1. You named him Knox!!!! I’m so in love. I can’t wait to meet him!

  2. Can we set up an arranged dating situation for Knox and Duffie? She’s only 2 years older.

    The rocking chairs are super cute! Now you can be properly southern and spend summer evenings rocking away on your front porch, drinking a glass of sweet tea and reading romantic poetry to each other ;)


  3. The rocking chairs on the front porch will be extremely adorable! My favorite gift, hmm, hard to beat Knox, but I have to say a batch of homemade tamales tops my list!

    My puppy (5 months now) is Knox too. He was named after Knoxville where my fiance and I met as well! Hope your Knox turns out to be just as wonderful as ours!
