I have to give it to those ladies who blog full time. Hats off to you all, I was so exhausted this weekend and couldn’t get it together (or find the time) to put up this post. After I forgave myself for my weekend failure here I am today to bring you all another give away 🙂

If you watched my November favorites video last week, you would have seen this lovely fragrance. Honestly, my favorite. It could be yours too… (cheesy I know).

Christmas Card Photoshoot

Happy Friday!

I am slightly stressed! I am getting my Christmas Card photos taken this weekend and I didn’t prepare the way I should have. I haven’t done anything to get ready for this shoot, which has given me inspiration on what to share with you all today.

  1. Theme- What do you want to share with your recipients? Do you want to send funny cards or more pretty cards.
  2. Coordinating outfits- I like our outfits to go together, without being too matchy.
  3. Location- Remember this will be the background of your photo.
  4. Timing- Be sure to give yourself time, you still have to create the card and mail them.

Frank and I have been married for a little over year and here is what our very first Christmas Card looked like. One reason or another I didn’t share it on the blog last year. I can’t wait to show you what our card will look like this year.

I hope you all liked my photo shoot. I took it specifically for my birthday 🙂 While searching for something fun to wear, I found this jumper at a super cute boutique here in Maryland called blush boutique. If you are looking for something sparkly this season and you don’t live in the Maryland area you can order the same jumper here.

Keeping it Suave 

This weekend a few friends of mine from college, decided to put together a series of events to celebrate a friend of ours who passed away. November 1 five years ago Suave passed away. That was his nickname, he was smooth 🙂 Typically we would get together for dinner or something simple for his birthday. Over the past few years we haven’t gotten together, so we decided to do it big this year.

We started on Friday, for Veteran’s Day. Suave was really enthusiastic about giving back to the community. When we were given the opportunity to hand out flags to the Veterans at the World War Two Memorial, we jumped on the opportunity. We has such a good time, and it was nice to give back.

We had to dress like a park ranger 🙂 

On Saturday, we hosted a brunch it was really nice, because some of Suave’s family stopped by and joined us. Spending this time together brought us back to the old times. After college we would have potlucks over Suave’s house, he was big on us getting together on a regular basis. Frank even made shirts for us with a drawing of Suave’s face on them. 

Towards the end of the brunch, we all wrote a message on a balloon and let them float to the sky. 

We even did the mannequin challenge!!! How did we do?

Here is a iphone pic of most of us from collage. We call ourselves “the fam” I think Suave came up with that name 🙂 

Did you all do anything fun over this holiday weeken? I would love to know how you all celebrated Veterans Day.signature2
