{Fun Unique Find}

Text Color

I should tell you that I have this curse of finding so many things that I want. My husband is my polar opposite and never has a wishlist. I had to share with you a fun find. These are scrabble tile homemade tile necklace pendants. They have pendants for every style. Love these...they are under $10 each and you get a deal if you buy them in bundles! You can find them at HomeStudio on etsy!

{It's here and I want it!}

I absolutely love Ree Drummond and her fabulous cooking style! Penne Ala Betsy is by far my favorite thing in the whole world and she introduced it to me. I have been a faithful follower of her blog and I am stoked that she now has a cookbook out. I want it!

I promised my sister that I would Blog some pictures of Cabo since she has yet to join the world of facebook she hasnt seen them. Jeff and I took a trip to Cabo at the beginning of December for our 8th anniversary and we had so much fun! This is the front of our resort "Coral Baja"
This was one of the pools at the Grand Mayanne.

Here is the Marlin Jeff caught deep sea fishing!

And the Mahi Mahi he caught that we ate for dinner that night. YUM!

Here is one of the glass bottom boats we road to lovers beach!

The view from our room!

At our resort they had the greenery shaped like animals everywhere. It was really amazing.

The beach outside our resort!

Lovers Arch!

On our glass bottom boat ride!


Us again!

Parasailing was so much fun!
We have alot more pictures but it takes so long to upload them on here that I dont have the patience! We had so much fun and we love the Spanish people! Thank You Cabo for such a good time!

{VMJess's Shop}

With my birthday quickly approaching I have had camera's on the brain! I am pleading for a new canon rebel (if any of you could plead my case to Jeff that would be great). While looking around on the mom-prenuers shops I came across the cutest camera straps! I love them. If I get my camera I will for sure have to be the proud owner of one of these babies! Here is a link to her Etsy shop and some pics of some of my favorites that she has right now! She also makes straps for little tote along cameras!
If the link doesnt work for this then just go to the etsy website and type in: vmJess

The Ports have had a year full of changes! We sent Boden off to college, added baby #7, sold our house, and looked for new job oppurtunities! Together we are getting through it. I love these kids more than anything! Thier smiling faces get me through anything and I am so proud of all of them. Jeff and I just celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary on Dec.1st. I am amazed how fast time has flown by. Happy to still be in love......happy about the experiences we have shared....happy to look forward to our future together.

The Ports want to wish you the very BEST HOLIDAY EVER!!!
Thanks Nicole Arnold for taking our family pics this year!
