Merry, Merry!

holiday 3I’m sorry my posting schedule has been sporadic at best, lately. This time of year is always so crazy (and cold) that I always come up with excuses to lay around my apartment in sweats instead of blogging. It’s unacceptable, and I promise to do better after the holidays! holiday version 2

Snuggly Layers

winter styleDespite the title, in my head I am calling this my ‘sick post’ as both me and my hubby were super sick with terrible colds when these photos were taken. We peeled ourselves off the coach long enough to get some fresh air on the roof and snap some shots. I can’t say the excursion made us feel any better, but it was fun!

Your holiday gift guide (If you don’t always want to give a bottle of booze. But a bottle of booze is always fine, too.)

Screen shot 2014-12-08 at 5.53.56 PMIt’s that time again. Christmas time! Which means you gotta give people gifts. I have compiled a few unique and lovely gifts that are sure to please.

The pop culture enthusiast/movie buff

  • My coworker discovered this Wes Anderson coffee table book. It is the best. You should get this book even if you have only seen one of Wes’ movies because it is just that good. Also, if you’ve only seen one Wes Anderson movie, you should really watch more.
  • Since we’re talking about Wes, these prints are amazing. A perfect way to put posters on your wall without looking like you live in a college dorm.
  • And who doesn’t love a sassy tote?
  • Okay, and who doesn’t want to lounge around in a Glen Coco sweatshirt?

For the girl who likes cute art and fun things:

For the girl who is all about hosting the cutest party:

For the gal who can’t put her phone down:

For the recently wed:

For the new mom in your life:

What fun gifts did you score this year? Share them in the comments below!

fall styleI am so sorry I’ve been gone so long.

Full disclosure, the reason I haven’t posted is because I can’t figure out how to upload the photos on my camera to my computer, lol. I got this new program and only my husband can work it. So I am at his mercy.

I am usually quite computer/Internet saavy so I am not sure what’s come over me.

Happy Thanksgiving (and a giveaway winner!)

cookieHappy Thanksgiving! As you can see, I am getting a head start on my Christmas cookie eating. Nom nom nom.

I am SO thankful for all of you who keep coming back to my little corner of the Internet day after day. Your support makes me very happy. Thank you.

And also, I have a giveaway winner! Refined and Polished, you just won yourself a Corilynn tee! I will be in touch with details.

PS, I used to pick the winner. I completely forgot how convenient that site is, but I feel like it is a bit old school. Do y’all have any selection sites you use for giveaways? I plan to do more giveaways in 2015, so I want to be on the cutting edge of technology.

Fall Blues

fall styleIt’s almost time for Thanksgiving, y’all! What are you most excited for?? I am most excited about eating.

I am also excited to give so much thanks for all I have.

But I am also excited about the eating.

Also, my husband and I were talking about the time we went to a Mexican restaurant for Thanksgiving a few years ago. It was hilarious, and random, and awesome — and I would do it again in a heartbeat because the food was just delicious!
