My Christmas Wish List

My Christmas wish lists have definitely changed over the years, and I really feel too old to even have one. I mostly think of things to ask for solely to help out family who ask what I'd like. Below is my wish list for this Christmas, which can be categorized by sparkly/holiday wear, home/kitchen, and a few random items like a darling pair of cat earrings and an art print from a restaurant that we went to in New Orleans on our honeymoon. Santa, here you go! :)

Friday, I'm In Love: December

Happy Friday! I am so excited to spend the weekend celebrating all things December; I foresee lots of Christmas movies, hot chocolate, balsam-scented candles, and a lot of snugging on the couch in pajamas with a knit blanket. Happy December, happy weekend!

Christmas Time of Year

Has it really been more than 2 weeks since we got married? Is Thanksgiving really over? Cannot believe how fast November has flown by, and it's already Christmas time. Between wedding, work, and the holidays I have definitely had less time to post anything/been too lazy, but I want to make an effort to post more during one of the best times of the year {second only to fall/Halloween}. I can't wait to get more photos from our wedding back too, and post them here. In the meantime here is a combo of both Christmas-related/wedding-related: festive scarf and holiday nails {OPI's "Big Apple Red"} + new antique bling that I proudly wear on my right hand :) Happy Christmas time of year!

Happy Thanksgiving! With a new husband, hosting for the first time, and the best cat on the planet, I'd say we have a lot to be thankful for. Have the most wonderful holiday with family, and be sure to eat, drink, and be merry! :)

I can't believe it's finally here. It feels like just yesterday we got engaged, and the wedding seemed so far away. We are trying to savor every moment, and prepare for the best weekend of our lives. It is good for us to be here :)
