Our Christmas cards from Minted came in and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out! The scalloped edges and metallic gold lettering are so pretty. Our family photo session may have been a little crazy, but everyone is (sort of) looking at the camera. Kind of.
If you didn’t get a chance to create a holiday card— a New Year’s card is a great option!
On Friday night I went out for dinner with a lovely group of ladies and it felt SO good to do the whole hair/makeup thing and wear clothes that were not yoga pants and/or pajamas with the word “PINK” written on the butt in hot pink letters (yes, they’re about four years old and yes, I still own and wear them in the comfort of my own home, shamefully so).
When I put my heels on, I was all “what is this sensation?” since I’ve basically lived in my converse shoes for the last couple of months. It felt good to feel good.
I pulled this shot from my SnapChat so apologies for the poor quality, but this snowglobe sweater is amazing. I’m so glad I purchased it. It’s currently 20% off and you can buy it here.snowglobe sweater | cords | heels (nearly identical for 30% off!)
On Saturday morning we went to our friend’s annual Christmas party and gift exchange and it was so fun! We also had Harper and Cami take a photo together in the same spot as the previous year. Look at those happy faces (there was most def. a meltdown about 10 mins after this photo because it was past nap time and “I’m still playing right now mommy.”) I am not exaggerating when I say that I’m obsessed with my new Tory Burch mini tote. It’s the perfect size and the color is so fun. I paired it with a plaid blanket scarf the other day and I just love this combo. It is on major sale in several colors right now too!similar scarf & another option for $20 | bag (on mega sale in several colors—I love the pink!) | shoes (I have the slip-on ones and they are awesome!)
I also have to mention this gingham pouch—it’s a great size for anything you need to keep stored in your purse- makeup, coupons, pacifiers, ha! It’s currently on sale plus an additional 25% off! I loved it so much I even got one for a friend as a gift. pouch | red bow | toddler hair clips (glitter and heart)
Another cold-weather obsession is “the blogger scarf” (because everyone with a blog has it). They just re-stocked it, and you can get it here. It’s massive and the color combo is so different than most blanket scarves. I wear it constantly! Please note it’s large enough to use as an actual blanket. Ha.
I know everyone’s local Homegoods store carries different stock, but I scored so many great items there today I couldn’t resist sharing and over-saturating my IG feed with them.
It’s not pictured below, but in addition to these items I scored a mirror that is very similar to the style and dimensions of the Pottery Barn mirrors in our master. I seriously wish they had been there months ago when I went looking because the mirror was such a steal! I’m going to use it in our powder room and move the mirror we have in there somewhere else since once it was hung I didn’t feel the size was a good fit for the space. If you need mirrors similar to ours, check your local store to see if they have the ones similar to the PB ones!
I also got pastel Christmas wrapping paper (will save for next year since our presents are wrapped), a beautiful wreath and pretty baskets with metallic silver woven through them. So pleased with all of my finds! I finally finished Lincoln’s 2-month update that I’ll share next week. I wanted to wait until he had his pediatrician’s appointment and I had my post-surgical appointment.
We’ve had a very rough few days of fussiness and nighttime red-faced, ear-piercing screaming/crying…but we’re thankful he’s been sleeping well in his crib after his nightly freak out (usually 5-6 hours his first stretch). It seems like he just has to get that crying out of his system to fall asleep because he has never not done it post-bath. Sweet boy. I love him so…even when I feel like I will break into tears myself if I have to hear one more minute of it. Hope y’all had a great weekend! Here’s to a week of fun and family as we approach a very special holiday. And for those of you who don’t celebrate or celebrate a different holiday, I send my warmest wishes to you and your families!
