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.

The girls take on Hot Springs

Oh wow. It’s been almost a month since I logged in and posted a little something to this here blog. Actually, that’s not true. I’ve logged in a handful of times, started a post, then gotten pulled away to a work meeting or something of the like.

Regardless, I DO have quite a bit to say now that my absolute favorite time of the year has arrived, and I have officially survived the ‘busy season’ at my job. But today let’s talk about the bachelorette party I helped throw in Hot Springs last weekend. My darling friend Michelle, the same one from my last post about her bridal shower, is getting married in TWO WEEKS!


We rented two villas on the lake in Hot Springs, Arkansas, and twelve other girls and I tried to show the blushing bride a good time.

So we may have found ourselves at a honky tonk bar at 9 p.m. only to discover that we were about twenty years too young and a cowboy hat or two short. And we may have convinced our shuttle driver to stop at Taco Bell at approximately 2:30 in the morning which is always simultaneously the best and worst decision one can make in the wee hours of the night. But in the meantime, we danced and laughed and cried and danced and laughed even more.

But man, these friends of mine. I am so lucky to have had such wonderful women in my life for the last 13 or so years. I seriously can’t wait to party with them again in two weeks for Michelle’s big day!
