Hi there, how are you? I surely enough I am at my parent’s house doing nothing, and living an amazing life 🙂

So I love this outfit, one of my favorites from this week. Honestly, I am loving styling all these outfit to share with you all. This outfit would look so cute with a pair of over the knee boots as well. I actually just ordered a pair from Nordstrom and now I wish I would have waited for them to arrive to wear with this outfit. Are you all excited for Christmas Eve tomorrow? Do you all have any Christmas Eve Traditions? I would love to hear what they are!

Happy Sunday Friends…

I am so sorry today’s post is late. Last night my husband threw me a surprise party and I had so much fun, so I wasn’t prepared for today’s post. That’s life for you.

I found this image on Pinterest and thought! Yes that is it! A few times this week I had to share something similar to this with a some people. So now it’s your turn. Really, I just want to share and be light to you all letting you know, if you are going through something that is less than ideal, and trying to make sense out of all the clamantly. Remember, everything happens for a reason and God has put you in a certain place for a certain reason. Just like this quote says, He could be trying to change your heart… just let Him. You will never win a fight with God, so try to understand what He is trying to teach you. I promise that is the easiest way out, just learn the lesson that is being given.

I hope you were encouraged.

Blogmas Day 24: Families and Holidays

If you all read these post regularly, you will know that I am getting married a little of 5 months. Being that today is Christmas Eve and I am in Richmond for the Holiday. It got me thinking how to people who have families all over the country spend their time with family for the Holidays. Frances and I have discussed this and we have came up with an easy solution to the problem.

For Thanksgiving we would like to host our families at our house in MD, which is what I do now and bringing Frances’ family into the mix would be easy. For Christmas we have a fairly easy arrangement as well. Which is why I am in Richmond now.

We start off in Richmond, the day we leave Maryland depends on our work schedule but no matter when we leave we stay in Richmond until late Christmas Eve (about 11pm) then we drive the hour and a half to Virginia Beach, where my parents leave and bring in Christmas morning there. Depending on work schedules, we try to stay until New Years which is my mom’s birthday.

Leave a comment down below you and your bf/gf handle the holidays.

Blogmas Day 23: Packing

I am a huge fan of packing. Maybe because I am an organization nut! It is just so much fun!!!! According to this picture it doesn’t look that much fun. I promise, there is a method to my madness.

IMG_2945

I like to lay out all my outfits then decide what I am going to wear or if I have to many outfits that I am bringing with me. In this pack fest I did have to leave somethings behind. Packing to go visit my parents is not that hard because when I go (especially for Christmas) I literally just hang out the entire time.

Here is my packing checklist

  • shirt for every day
  • camisoles
  • leggings
  • workout clothes
  • sneakers
  • sweaters
  • jewelry
  • underwear
  • socks
  • towel & washcloth

If any of you are traveling for the holidays let me know how you pack for your travels, I would love to know!
