Branson in the Snow

Merry – Day After – Christmas! Or Happy Boxing Day, I suppose. We had a wonderful holiday with our families, and Santa was extra generous this year.

While we’re still in the Christmas spirit (at least your tree is probably still up and whatnot) I wanted to share some holiday photos that I snapped in Branson with you all.

This year we made our yearly trip to Branson to see the Christmas lights a family affair. Like, the whole family. My family, Jacob’s family, my brother-in-law Ty’s family. We rented a giant cabin and had a lovely, cozy weekend. We woke up on Saturday to a fresh dusting of snow that made the trip to Silver Dollar City especially festive. On Sunday, we stopped for brunch at our favorite place, the Keeter Center on the College of the Ozarks campus.

In true holiday fashion, I made everyone pose for a gazillion photos that only myself and the moms probably appreciate.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Leonards, Edwardses and Watsons! I hope you got to spend some time with your loved ones, and maybe even received a few nice gifts while we’re at it.



Chicago Girls Getaway



Last month my dear mother had a very special birthday. Kind of a milestone. I won’t say which one –okay, okay she finally turned 30 ;) -so my sister and I surprised her with a quick weekend trip  to Chicago at the end of October to celebrate.

It was a whirlwind of a trip, but we had the best time.

We rented the cutest apartment  just outside of McKinley Park from Airbnb.com. We took the subway or the bus (oh, the bus. never again. long story) everywhere as the closest train stop was only about a ten minute walk away from the apartment. It was so nice to not have to worry about driving (or parking) downtown. We shopped and ate and did some sightseeing and ate some more. We saw Once at the Oriental Theatre and it was absolutely fabulous. On Saturday we went to Wicker Park’s BooPalooza and it was so great that I’m dedicating an entire post to the cuteness that is Wicker Park at Halloween.

Chicago, I think I might love you. You better believe I’ll be back soon.
