Christmas Week!

Welp, it's Christmas week! I cannot believe it's already here. I'm just ACHING to get in the car and get to my parents house on Thursday. As I sit here with Christmas tunes in my ears,  I was thinking about all the good times I've had with my family over the last 25 Christmas's... Christmas past's / Christmas present and I thought I would share. The magic of Christmas as a child is one of those feelings you never forget. I'm so thankful for my parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles {the adults in my life}, for making the holidays such a special & unforgettable time. I hope to someday recreate them for the kiddos in my life.  

Tonight I have a shopping / baking / wrapping / take out / home alone marathon date tonight with my boyf. I need this festive night: cozy & holiday-ish. It's going to be a wonderful one! My dad has requested fudge, peanut brittle, and snicker doodles, so I will be hitting up the store for all the makings for such delicious treats. Believe it or not, I do not own sugar, flour, or baking soda... {yay! for betty crocker pre-mixed treats!} and I am going to purchase those items today. I have no doubt I will feel very grown-up for having those essentials in my kitchen.

safe travels.....merry christmas, happy hanukkah, etc... & happy new year!!

well hi!

Dang, it's been a while. I'm slacking... too much going on I suppose. But, I am back! I hope whoever reads this is doing greatly & enjoying life.

Let's see... Thanksgiving was fantastic. Spent it up in the mountains of Colorado with my family. We mostly hung out inside watching movies and watching the snow fall with our baby lady {her first snow!}. She thought is was pretty exciting... :) It's not everyday that you get to experience or see something you've never heard of or seen before... pretty magical for a little baby. 

So, after Thanksgiving there's been lots of hanging out with friends, friends moving to New York City, fun dinner date nights, movies, and music. This weekend was cold, rainy and full of the cozy / warm indoors, music, movies, plays (the nutcracker!), taco trucks, and other food. Some friends and I watched two Nashville folks {Rayland Baxter and Odessa} play some very beautiful tunes at a cafe one night and the next night saw an old music love, Rachael Yamagata, play at one of my favorite venues in town. It was QUITE a DELIGHT. 

Since I last posted...

Okay, so...........caaaaaaaaaan we just talk about how I get serious heart flutters when I see the combination of jeans/cords, flannel shirts, beards, sweaters/pullovers, and cold weather? My o MAN! I know many manly men & a main man in my life that do dress like this and it makes me SO HAPPY. Here are some examples of some PERFECT combo's for fall / winter {or if you live somewhere cold...}.

{why yes, I did find these on Pinterest...}

& FOR US LADIES.... I'm all about the perfect scarf, chunky sweaters, layers, booties, pattern mixing, deep romantic colors {like my new burgundy heels!}, and pretty lip blast. :)
