Wishing everyone a day filled with lots of LOVE!
I feel so fortunate to spend my 11th Valentine’s Day with my forever Valentine…my wonderful hubby Chris. Tof, I love you to the moon and back! Thank you for always loving me and making me feel so special. You’re the most wonderful man a girl could every ask for. So lucky to call you my best friend and love of my life! ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ Happy Valentine’s Day! Looking forward to dinner tonight; spending time with you, drinking wine and snuggling with our pups!
Today we are also celebrating TWO years ago when we had the best Valentine’s Day picking up our second mini schnauzer pup, DASH! You can read all about when we first got him here. Dash turned out to be a big love bug haha maybe because we got him on Valentine’s day. He loves to give lots of kisses and snuggle with his sister Emma and us of course! 😉 LOVE both of our sweet pups and our little family! ❤
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYONE! ❤
I’m back! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with family/friends and celebrated the New Year in style! Isn’t it just crazy how fast the holidays come and go…and now it’s 2017.
We’ve been traveling a lot over the holidays, hence my mini-break from the blog. Here’s a quick recap of our holidays:
12.23.16 On Friday I baked a ton of cookies during the day (since I had the day off-yes) and then we made a little Christmas dinner with a small meat roast from Trader Joe’s, potatoes and veggies. After dinner we went to the Sharks game! Love when Tof gets free tickets from his patients! Can’t pass up a game when free tickets are involved.
12.24.16 Since we were going to be with my family later in the day and then in the car on Christmas, we opened our present today! Tof made a big breakfast (waffles) and we enjoyed a relaxing morning drinking coffee and opening all our gifts. ❤
We spent Christmas Eve with my family; just the six of us (mom, dad, Ari, Brian & Tof) oh and 6 dogs! For dinner we had our traditional Christmas Eve meal, which consisted of ham, Grammis potatoes, sauerkraut and plenty of mulled wine. For dessert we ate a bunch of Christmas cookies and then opened presents from my parents and our Secret Santas.
Our family sure is growing with the addition of Ari and Brian’s dogs, Hazel and Muddy!
I think Hazel and Muddy are fitting in just fine! Love all these sweet pups! ❤
12.25.16 Christmas morning we got up bright an early (like 6am) and got in the car to head to Southern California for Christmas with Chris’s mom. We caught a beautiful Christmas sunrise that was just stunning! The roads were so quiet that early, so it made this sunrise even more majestic. What a great way to start Christmas! ❤
On our way down via Highway-5, The Grapevine had SNOW! Last year there was also some snow, but this year there was a TON. So much snow that we just had to pull over and let the dogs check it out! Check these awesome pictures! Emma LOVED the snow, Dash was a little hesitant at first but also thought it was pretty cool And yes, that would be y hubby in SHORTS and SANDALS in the snow haha.
Looks like we’ve got SNOW!
Funny how those oh so white mini schnauzers don’t look so white in the snow haha. Can’t wait to take them to the snow again because they really loved it!
We got down to Huntington Beach in pretty good time (around noon) and spent the rest of the day just relaxing. Later we watched Sully (love Tom Hanks), had our usual Christmas dinner of prime rib (so good) and then opened presents. I missed my family, but loved being able to spend time with my other family :). We took lots of pictures and then headed to bed.
P.S. Best gift from my hubby…t-shirt from the best movie ever!! Good job!
12.26.16 On Monday we went to San Diego for the day to visit with Tof’s sister Kristen and our niblings! I can’t believe how big Colton (5), Kendall (3) and Madison (3) are! Such cuties and so grown up already. They are at a really fun age and just wanted to play, show us their rooms and spend some quality time with Auntie Risa and Uncle Chris. During our visit we also found out we will be aunt and uncle AGAIN in June because Kristen is pregnant with baby #4! ❤ ❤ ❤
So hard to get pictures of these kids because they are so active! Can’t believe come June there will be FOUR of them! So happy and excited for the growing Cline family! ❤
12.27-12.29 On our way back from SoCal we usually stop in SB in order to break up the drive home. It’s always great to spend a little time in SB and see old friends! Thanks to Eva for letting us stay with her.
We ❤ SB
12.31-1.1.17 On Saturday we headed to see our friends Jess and Dan in Oakdale, CA. I think this is our 4th NYE that we’ve spent together…par-tay people! In the past, we’ve gone to these big NYE party, but for the past two years there have been no parties. I think the guy who throws them is done. No problem for us; we create our own party!
After getting to Jess and Dan’s, we hung out for a little, had a yummy cheese/meat plate and then took our pups to the dog park! Those pups had a BLAST and loved running around/playing with each other! Check out these awesome pics! Such a great way to spend the last day of 2016.
After the dog park we played Spades (for hours), had a delicious fajitas dinner and played The Voting Game (which I won during my coworkers white elephant exchange) before the big countdown.
Couldn’t imagine ringing in the New Year with anyone else. Love these peeps so much and feel very grateful for their friendship! Hope you all had a wonderful NYE filled with friends, family and plenty of champagne.🍾 🍾
So that’s a wrap of all our holiday celebrations! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I will you a fabulous New Year! All best for 2017!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! CHEERS TO 2017!
Hope you all had a wonderful evening last filled with friends, family and plenty of champagne. Here’s to a brand-new year, one that I hope is filled with LOVE, PEACE, HEALTH, PROSPERITY, and HAPPINESS! Wishing you all a fabulous New Year! All best for 2017!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE EVERYONE!!
Hope you enjoy time with friends, family and loved ones tonight. Looking back, I have so many found memories of Christmas Eve as little kid…everything is just so magical this time of year! Can’t wait to spend time with my family; it’s going to be a wonderful day all around.
Also wishing you all a wonderful Christmas tomorrow and truly hope you enjoy every moment. We are heading down to Huntington Beach early Christmas morning (like 5am) so we can celebrate with Chris’ mom. I’ll be back here in a few days to blog about all of our holiday festivities!
