A Merry Merry Thank You!

Okay, so nooooooow where are you with your shopping?

Christmas Cones

Just kidding! Unless you’re still shopping, then I’m totally not kidding.

I know it’s a bonkers week, and you’ve got gifts to wrap, and open, and cookies to bake, and eat, and cars and bags to pack, and cookies to eat, and movies to watch, and kiddos to hang with, and cookies to eat, but I just wanted to pop in real quick to say thank you. I swear I’m not going to get sappy. (however, I may get sippy) But!! Thank you. Thank you so much for being so supportive of this lil’ space. Earlier this year I decided to take the blog in the slightly different direction with more lifey, twinsy, diapery kinds of posts.

Not really on the diapery posts. I’m saving those for 2015.

Anyway, this lifestyle direction has been soooososo much fun for me, and I hope it has been for you, too! Has it? You can tell me. You don’t have to tell me.

Basically, my head is getting wack-a-wonk excited as I start thinking about the new year, and the things I want to share with you here. And seriously, if you have any suggestions or ideas, pleaaaase throw ’em at me! And a helmet.

Christmas Tree

Thing is, I just really, really, really value you. You come to my site, we hang out, we giggle, we go our little ways, and then a few days later, we do it again. This place, you guys, you keep me going. And I can’t thank you enough for it.

So, before I profusely gross you out with my sap, I wish you all the haaaaappiest and the meeeeerriest of holidays ever. Ever ever ever. Be safe. Have fun. Wear your fat pants. Throw some back. Sleep in. Watch White Christmas. You deserve it.

I’ll be back on Friday with a little holiday flotsam (duh), but in the meantime, eat all those cookies, for the love.

Merry merry!

    Merry Christmas, Bev! So glad we've gotten to know each other this year. I adore your blog!! xoxo

    I love your blog! I adore your babies! You came to Mississippi!!!! And who comes here?! But it was awesome that you did because Mississippi is way cool and no one really knows that. Anyway, I think the blog is perfect as is but I'm not really a foodie so don't mind me if I don't need more food posts. Although if there weren't any I wouldn't have them to hoard for possibly making later... Merry Christmas!! P.S. Baby posts are particularly incredible for us almost empty nest people - thanks for sharing :)

    Bev, I absolutely love your posts. I started following you when you were first pregnant with Natalie and Will. I have laughed so hard that wardrobe changes were necessary and love seeing your beautiful photos of life as you know it. I am thankful for your little space, and pray that you and your have the best Christmas and an exciting New year ahead. With much love, Rachel

    "Wear your fat pants." Haha. I immediately think of Joey from friends on Thanksgiving. Your blog is amazing and you have a magical way of letting your personality come out through your writing which IMO is the most difficult part of writing on a blog.

    i have loved reading the increase of lifestyle posts (your recipes are still great too though!)...would love to hear even more about life with twins...as a fellow twin mama (mine are 4.5 months), i always appreciate learning how others make everything work with two little ones! :)

    The tone of your blog is just the right amount of "friend I don't really know but would act like I know her if I ever met her". I like the balance of house/home/baby and food. Keep up the good work and Merry Christmas.

    Your food posts are to die for! But, if you do more food posts in 2015..please don't cut back on baby posts! They are my favorite!

    Bev- I love anything you post! I love your more lifestyled posts but I also love your recipes. I've made several and loved them every time. Just keep us laughing, that's all I ask! Merry Christmas! The Twins first one :)

    Merry Christmas, Bev! Don't change a thing... you're recipes are spot on, and I really enjoy the babies/ lifestyle stuff. For me, your humor is the icing on the cake. Are you the Bev who used to comment on the anti- PW blogs?
    • Bev Weidner December 26, 2014 at 7:53 am #
      Thanks so much! Okay, so anti-PW blogs? As in, GOMI? No way. Not me. I adore Ree and wouldn't say one nasty thing about her! Merry Christmas to youuuu!
  28. Amy @ The Blond Cook December 25, 2014 at 8:07 pm #
    I always enjoy seeing and reading about your adorable twins (love your recipes too!). Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    I'm new to your site this year, and I've really enjoyed it! It was fun to get to binge-read at first, and I think the mix of lifey/baby stuff with recipes keeps it extra fun. It's a pleasure to be able to check in on your site and follow your Instagram! I'm so happy to have found it! Happy New Year!

      Oh you've made my day! Thanks for following. :)
