Cozy in Pink

Can you believe Christmas is just a little over a week away? A small part of me is sad about it honestly. I love the holiday season and wish it lasted a little longer. I keep my radio on Holiday Traditions, enjoy the tinsel in my house and around town, love the holiday TV shows and movies and the gorgeous Christmas carols sung at my church on Sundays. It's always a bit of a letdown once it's over. I'm totally soaking up the merry while I can because it will be over before we know it. I'm excited about Christmas day though. Every year it just gets more fun.
Today I wanted to share this look with you. I absolutely love this sweater. So much so that I have it in cream as well and I wanted it in another shade too but tried to have a little self control. Maybe I can convince someone to get it for me for Christmas. The sleeves are so cute and different and they're the reason I love it so much!
Scott makes fun of me for tucking my sweaters in just a little on the front but I feel like it makes the look just a little more pulled together and polished. Like I put a little more effort into it. Ha! Every time he goes to take my pictures he's like "your shirt is tucked in, in the front" and I'm like "I knoooowww....we've been through this several times now. It's not a mistake."
This sweater is currently only TWENTY DOLLARS!! What are you waiting for? Who in my family that's reading this wants to get this sweater for me in a small? The blue one. (*hint to Scott....even though I tuck it in and you don't like it). There's still time to order online and get it on your doorstep for Christmas! You won't have any regrets buying this one. Get alllll the colors.

Wordless Wednesday

Tuesday, December 12, 2017


I posted this quick snap on Instagram over the weekend but I wanted to share the link to it on here too because I got a lot of questions about it. I got this sweater at the beginning of fall and I love it. The shade is so pretty. It actually comes in a few different shades and they're all so pretty. The stitching at the hem and cuffs adds a fun touch and the weigh of the sweater is light and cozy.
This sweater is currently less than $30 and would be the perfect Christmas gift for you or someone you love! Anyone else pick up some gifts for yourself while you're supposed to be Christmas shopping for others? My friend, Jake, always said he felt like he needed to gift himself a prize for doing so good on his Christmas shopping. Haha! Totally.

Happy Monday everyone. This is the boys last week of MDO before a month long break so I'm doing my best to get every possible thing done that I can do. It's crazy how when I'm alone running errands I can do things about five times faster than I can when I have two cute boys in tow with me. I told Campbell last night that this would be his last week of school for a long time and he was super bummed about it. He asks me every single day if he can go to school. I'm so glad he loves it!
Another thing he asks to do every single day is go see a movie. Our mother/son date night to see 'The Star' really had an impact on him apparently. I knew he loved it but I didn't realize he loved it that much. Scott took him to go see it again on Friday night because he hasn't stopped asking to go see it again. We hope to take him to see Ferdinand together over the Christmas break. I love that Campbell loves going to the movies because I love it too! I look forward to when Bennett will be able to sit through a movie. I predict lots and lots of trips to the movie theater with the boys in our future.
It was freezing cold here all weekend so we mostly stayed bundled up inside. Season Two of The Crown started on Netflix on Friday so I parked myself in front of the TV and binged over the weekend. I love this show and if you aren't watching it you're missing out! It's about Queen Elizabeth and the royal family and I find it so fascinating. If you're intrigued by the royal family like I am then this show is for you! I'm excited to finish the season but then it will be so long before another one starts so a part of me wants to take it slow. I'm sure I'll finish before the week is up though :)
Until tomorrow...

Poinsettia Pups

Happy Friday everyone! I can't believe that Christmas is just a little over two weeks away!! I still have shopping to do. I'm trying to finish it up before the boys last week of MDO (next week). 
Today I wanted to share these photos I got of the girls a few weeks ago. They are my top favorite photos of them for sure. I needed a good picture of them to put on our Christmas card and a few easy snaps later and I got it. Didn't even take 5 minutes! They were being so sweet (or maybe they were bored? Ha!) and laid their little heads down and just stared at me while I was shooting. I love the light and colors and the way it all came together. Very proud of these pics! 
I hope you all have a fun-filled weekend. Scott and I want to take the boys to do something fun and Christmas-y. Campbell asks every single day if he can go to the movies to see ''The Star' again so maybe he and Scott can go and do that over the weekend since Scott missed out on it the first time. I'm sure we'll find something fun to do. See you back here next week!

Christmas Tour

Every year I give a little Christmas tour of my home but I decided to skip out on it this year because it literally looks almost identical to what I did the last two years. I posted all about it HERE so if you want to take a peek, feel free!
I shared this photo on Instagram last week and I have been getting so many questions about where everything is from. I didn't link any of it because I've had it all for years so I know it's probably unavailable to purchase now. But I'll share anyways since so many have asked. My stockings are from Dillards although I've seen the same looking ones at Homegoods/TJ Maxx and Tuesday Morning before. The garland is Threshold from Target (last year). My Christmas pillows are from Pottery Barn a few years ago but they usually keep the same ones around year after year so you could probably still find them. Finally, the girls bed is from Restoration Hardware. It was their Christmas present last year and they LOVE it but it is sold out unfortunately.
I love my Colorful Christmas and think it's so fun for the boys to enjoy. However, I think I'll have to mix it up a little next year in our new house and do something different. We'll need a bigger tree (I'm thinking flocked!) so I'll probably stick this tree in the boys playroom or something and do a different "theme" for our main tree in the living room. Scott said he wants it to be "woodsy" and I was like
"like plaid and burlap?" and he was like...."I'm not sure...maybe." So maybe we'll go woodsy next year. Ha!
I love Christmas and enjoy my Christmas d├ęcor. The twinkling lights really do make me feel merry. It's kinds of sad that this is our last Christmas in this home so I'm embracing the Christmas memories we'll make here for the last time. Very much looking forward to Christmas in our home next year too! Bittersweet times.
