Hello 2024! I see you! I don’t really do a word of the year, but I am making a list of the things I’m letting go of this year! If you want to check it out, I shared an Instagram Reel this week entitled Letting go in the Snow, lol! A winter Blast is headed our way..YAY! Don’t plan on letting go of Friday Favorites. I love sharing the things I love!

1. Family

The Best Gift: Having our family all under one roof!

4 Generations on Christmas Eve at Mom's

2. Twins 

These sweethearts turned three months old on December 28th. They are getting so much more vocal and interactive, and we just love it! 

They are the light of our lives!

Miss Coco

Miss Cici

3. What I Wore

Of course, I lived in pajamas a lot over the holidays, but there were occasions when I put on regular clothes.

Santa Jams

Wait, let’s first talk about some of my favorite new jammies. I even did a Reel in these with Stella. Just look at that feather trim on the sleeves and bottoms. AND PINK. You might want to go ahead and get these for next year!

UNDER $30!

Dressed Up

Here was my favorite dressed up outfit! We finally got to try a new restaurant in town with friends that has had all five-star reviews. I really liked the outfit I put together that night!

My Fav Boots this year HERE

Comfy Cozy

Look at these 2 cute pieces Mr. Nine got me. I loved the Top so much; I ordered the tan as well. The Leggings are plum and so pretty with a perfect fit.

LOVE these Sneakers so much, I got my mom a pair and a back-up pair when these wear out.Do you ever do that? 

4. Necklace

Several of you have been mentioning this brand. Susan Shaw. My mom got me one of her necklaces for Christmas and her piece are exquisite. Love the statement, the chain lengths and toggle.

Packaged so sweetly..great Valentine gift too!

5. Misc. Fun


Monday ~ Amazon in the New Year...JUST 3 PURCHASES


Look how Pretty. Every year we have red velvet cake in some form but one of the girls wanted a carrot cake, so made that AND red velvet cupcakes.

I made lots of other beautiful foods, too, including three charcuterie boards, but I might save them for inspiration next season, lol.



Speaking of family, this precious boy has a birthday today! He and his beautiful fiancé are headed to New York City to live it up. Here is one of his favorite pictures from this past year, running his first half marathon in their current city of Baltimore! So proud! He’s worked so hard, and his workouts have kept him busy while living in a city they don’t love. Always so hard to be away from them on their birthdays!

Happy Weekend!
Do you have snow? Is January dragging for ya?
I Love ya!



  1. I am liking January so far! No complaints, although no huge snow storms are in our forecast either- stay safe. It looks like it´s going to be a doozy! Love the pictures of the twins and your going out to dinner outfit- so chic! I l love running race photos- inspiring and bonus when the pictures make the runner look like an Olympic athlete like your son´s does. Have a great weekend!

  2. Cici and Coco are so identical! Are you having trouble telling them apart? 3-6 months is so fun! Their little personalities will really start to show. Great pics and thanks for sharing! Love all of your outfits! Those sneakers came with me to the UK and my feet never hurt. They are the most comfortable ones I own right now. I am wearing them to school this week a lot!

  3. Happy New Year! The babies are so beautiful and love to see them grow! Your holiday outfits, even the pjs, are so on point as always!

  4. Love all these photos of your family and your grand babies! I bought my sister that exact necklace for Christmas and she loved it. I want one too! I love those sneaks as well! Happy Friday Andrea.

  5. I am so happy you were able to have the whole family together at once! Such a fun time. Enjoy the weekend, Andrea!

  6. 3 months is a great age! Love the family photos!

  7. Love your leggings outfit (and the dressed up one too). I did quite a few days of leggings and sweatshirts and fun sneakers this break. Happy 3 months to the babies!

    I agree with your son. I lived in Baltimore for 6 years. I did not like that city or the people at all!

  22. I can't believe the twins are already 3 months old. You are blessed! Congrats to your son on his first half!
