Chris and I have been trying to decide what to get each other for Christmas.
Chris, being the generous guy that he is, requested that I set aside most of the money I would spend on his gift to buy a cow for a family in need through World Vision.
He is pretty awesome like that. 

I'm attempting to do a mostly handmade Christmas for my family.
I've usually been the one to end up at the mall at 6am on Christmas Eve to get that last minute gift, so DIY-ing is probably the best.
I'm proud to say I'm one project down.

Happy Saturday

On this Saturday, remember the simple joy of a steaming cup of coffee and a good book.
I'm spending this Saturday eating delicious beignets, putting up Christmas decorations, and spending time with my husband.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Lazy Sunday

I'm sitting outside enjoying the fresh air before it gets dark.
Today makes me want to wrap myself up in my glorious West Elm knit throw, slip on some fuzzy socks, and get lost in a book.

I just remembered I have Starbucks salted caramel hot chocolate on the counter...bye!

Windy Nights

Grab a skirt and umbrella and head outside to Mary Poppins in the sky. The weather is blustery tonight.

I'm glad that Chris and I didn't buy chimes today...something about wind and chimes reminds me of the M. Night Shyamalan movie Signs.  Chills.

As a graphic designer, I'm always trying to use my design programs for everything. Lately, it's been interior design and home decor. I wish I was proficient in AutoCAD, but that's pretty far down on the to-learn list. Here I sit working on Christmas decor mock-ups right now.

Chris and I spent the afternoon at this place called The Barn. It's every tchotchke loving mom's paradise. Between the mantels filled with floral arrangements, vines, and vases of all sizes there are some good finds. Plus, they have a whole building dedicated to Christmas decor. Later, we hit up Hobby Lobby with all of their 50% off Christmas merchandise. I'm trying to hold off until next week to put it all up. I'm so excited to decorate our first place.

Hope you keep your feet on the ground this windy evening...
