I guess tours aren't very popular on Tuesday mornings at 10am in January...because I was the only one on my tour of the Nottoway Plantation! My tour guide, Crystal, was super nice and very informative. I think I may ask for personal tours from now on! Here are a few of my favorite shots of the day!

Even though it was only 27 degrees in Baton Rouge, I decided to brave the day and check out the LSU Rural Life Museum. And I'm so glad I did! The chilly temps made for few visitors, so I pretty much had the place to myself (ok, ok, I did see three other visitors there!). My face was a bit numb after my time outside, but it was all worth it! There was so much to look at but here are a few of my favorite shots of the day.
I'm spending a few months in Baton Rouge currently and am enjoying experiencing a new culture. I was definitely not expecting the cold wave that hit a few days after I arrived, though! But I did enjoy snapping a few pictures of all the ice!

My sister is an Usborne Books consultant so we've paired up to make some stuffed animal and book sets. Let your little one cuddle up with this dinosaur during story time! The dino is paired with a book from my favorite Usborne series and is now available in my shop!

Recently I've been so busy with sewing projects that my poor puppy hasn't had his desired constant companion! So, I decided to make him a little toy to cheer him up. I sewed little pockets on to the body so I could put his treats in there! The toy lasted probably a day before he has ripped it all up--but it entertained him for a while at least while I got some work done!

I've added four new baby gift sets to my Etsy shop! Each set includes a flannel blanket, a plush, baby shoes, and either a onesie or book! These sets are SO much fun to put together and I think they would be such fun gifts to give to people. Have any babies you need to welcome into this world???

|Everyone's all excited about the new year and I'm all like...has my medicine kicked in yet?|
Let's take a moment to state that I pretty much killed my 2015 challenges: I read 83 books (goal was 75) and I sewed 13 dresses (goal was 12). Woohoo!
I love new year challenges. I love the fresh take on everything. I love feeling like you have another year to learn new things and another year to try to live how you want to be living. That being said, I feel like I have not started 2016 out like I typically like to. I have been super sick since Christmas so I am pretty much just hyper focusing on the present goal of getting better! I have a really busy January and will be moving cross country in February so maybe I'll start my "new year goals" in February!
