Fourteen in '14

We're linking up with a few of our favorite friends for their Fourteen in '14 Linky Party!

We're what we call a "work in progress"...
Attending the Southern California Kindergarten Conference and spending some much needed, rejuvenating face time with our teacher blogging buddies was by far our favorite 2014 memory.These women have truly touched our lives in so many ways and we are so blessed to call them our friends. We're excited to head back there again this year as presenters!
Definitely our selfie from the Teachers Pay Teachers Conference!

 And definitely this picture with all of the presenters...

About a year ago this week, we received an email telling us we would be presenting at the first ever Teachers Pay Teachers conference. We literally dropped our cell phones on the living room floor and walked out the front door. We then picked them up, and just walked out of our own houses around our blocks about a dozen times, chatting on the phone and trying to soak in the news...It was a dream come true. What followed were months and months of anticipation, planning, and planning, and planning, and planning. It all came together in Las Vegas last July, and we feel beyond blessed to have been a part of such an amazing experience.

We loved sharing this super secret blog post with you...

This Rudolph EOS lip balm gift idea has already saved our antlers more than once this holiday season...
This is an absolute Christmas 2014 DIY gift favorite!

After the Teachers Pay Teachers Conference, we decided to gift each other with Alex and Ani bangles! We wanted to commemorate our time in Vegas and according to our husbands, find an excuse to buy jewelry. We prefer our rationale, but whatever the case, we bought 3...Each. :)

And, we just added this one to our arm candy collection too. We love Alex and Ani...and our husbands. ;)
If you have an iPad, you need an Osmo. We had the privilege of snagging one of these on pre-sale before they even hit the market last summer. Since then, we've acquired 3 more, are gifting some to a few nieces and nephews this Christmas, and convinced our school to grab some too. They are now available in the Apple Store and online too. The Osmo basically brings hands on play and plugged in play together for an amazing interactive experience.  

For quick and snappy lunches, we always choose Snapper Jack's Taco Shack. Yum!

For long and lazy lunches, we always choose The Lazy Dog Cafe.

We've been Survivor fans since Season 1...It still remains a weekly family favorite in both our homes. 

It's sort of sad when the only movie you remember watching was Elf...the other day...Neither of us are huge movie goers, but we're BIG movie sleepers. If we ever have time to sit and watch movies, we'll likely just fall asleep...Mostly during the opening credits...Before the movie even starts.  But, we made it through Elf the other day no problem...So, it's our favorite! Smiling's our favorite too. ;)

Infinity scarves to infinity and beyond. Love, love, love. We wear them in the dark and in the park...On boats and with goats...We wear them here, there and everywhere!

As we walk down our personal 2014 Memory Lane, we realize what an amazing year it has been for us. We are so grateful to our friends and family, readers and customers for fluttering along this journey with us. May you have a wonderful holiday season!
