Loving this pic of Hattie and her Uncle Billy…and she’s wearing her Missoni Madness Target creeper!
Stella met an older man named Dean who she was crushing on. Even said all
flustered, “Mom I need lipgloss.”

the local resort.

Hattie only has eyes for Daddy in this pic. I love it!
Obsessed with these booties I found for Hattie online.

Antique shopping in this small town.
Dean got SO excited when we found this antique. It even came with a recipe!
No explanation needed…
Uncle Mehran joined us for New Year’s Eve with lots of goodies for the
Scout and I made the appetizers. Here is a warm goat cheese, dates, bacon, and
balsamic dip we came up with!
Bacon, dried cherry, and Bleu cheese wontons.
Mini chicken pot pie poppers
Stella’s infamous NYE photo… Work it!

Our NYE place setting. When out of town,
you make do with what you can find. Apparently scratchers were the theme of
Mehi and my stepson Jack doing their scratchers! FYI… No
big winners but we had fun.
