Life Lately: Volume 107

Greetings from my lil’ sick bed in which I’ve living in since Wednesday. I woke up a few days ago with chills and body-aches and it’s just gone downhill from there. It’s been a rough few days but I’m hoping I’m through the worst of it and really hoping that Anel and the kids don’t get whatever I have. The only silver lining is that I’ve been able to watch all of my favorite Christmas movies!

Before I got sick, I pulled together a bunch more gift guides (seen below) and will be winding them down next week. It’s been a doozy of a gift guide season but so much fun.
