December?!

Can you believe it?! It’s December?! Eeks!!!

It’s been crazy busy with Thanksgiving last week, braving the crazy on Black Friday, and decorating the house. Christmas is my favorite time of year, all the lights, shiny decorations, and wrapping beautiful packages! I much prefer the pretty packages to what is usually inside them, so odd!! I do love gifting others the best.

Anyway, some recaps. First, did you see the Kate Spade surprise sale that ran all weekend? Buy anything good? Today they are running an additional 30% off for Cyber Monday! I don’t have plans to purchase anything else (as tempted as I might be!!!), merely because my early Christmas present is supposed to arrive today and I promised my husband I would be good. I was tempted though!!!

Black Friday, I did go out (had to work, oh being a grown up!!), but other than scanning items for shop kick points (hello freebies!), I didn’t buy anything major. Just some small things for the kids. I did wrap presents!

A few outfits from the past week:

And finally picked out new couches, which should arrive today or tomorrow. Super excited!!!! My office has been in shambles for months, it’s slowly coming back together. I really dislike furniture shopping!

Happy Monday! Don’t spend too much, all those online specials can be super tempting!

Also preparing a fun little holiday giveaway, stay tuned!

Until next time,

Happy Tuesday! It’s off to work for me (okay, I’m blogging from the conference table, shhhhhhh).

I don’t normally wear a sweater over a dress, but hey, why not? Always trying to find new ways to wear half the stuff I never wear in my closet.

Two adorable cardigans I snagged at goodwill yesterday:

The black one is vintage, I washed it and it came out beautifully. Excited to style it! The polka dot one is American Eagle, not a brand I would normally buy, but it was oh-so-cute and new with tags. Now it needs to warm up so I can wear it!!

And the raspberry pie I made last night (from scratch, including the filling, it was AMAZING!!!!!)

Hope your Tuesday is fabulous, it’s back to paperwork for me!

Until next time,
