A Few Favorite Things

Dressing up with my husband for Sloan Christmas party number one - wish you could see my fabulous red heels in this shot!

Catching up with the girls at Sloan's Christmas party number two. SO nice to feel like a grown up, but it was tough to hit the town two nights in a row. Mac barely recognized me without jeans and flats on!

A sweet baby boy to come home to - wearing an outfit I've been looking forward to seeing on him since our first shower last summer. (And the grandparents who kept him two nights in a row as Christmas parties kept us busy. So thankful!)

Kiehl's Coconut Lip Balm - Kiehl's #1 is my very favorite lip balm; I keep a tub of it on my bedside table and never travel without it. I just ordered this coconut scented version and can barely contain myself! I am so tempted to sprint to the beach and grab a pina colada that only the gray, chily weather is holding me back. Run to and get your own; everywhere else is all sold out!

Honorable Mentions:
  • Playing James Taylor, Josh Groban and Amy Grant's Christmas albums all day long.
  • A pediatrician's office who squeezes us in with an hour's notice after an Exorcist-style evening - I'll spare you any further details. Mac is currently napping off in his swing and I hope to do the same soon!
  • Almay eye makeup remover pads - because I have dark enough circles on my own!
  • Scarves in every color - part warmth, part accessory, part baby stain coverer. Love 'em!
  • Laughing out loud! I spent so much time chatting with the girls at a Saturday night cocktail party that I barely saw Bradley. As we passed each other halfway through, I said to him, "B, we're going this way but I'll be back soon!" A few quizzical looks later, someone asked me if he minds that I call him "Beaver." Yes, I'm sure he would. Going to work on my enunciation next time!
  • Sending and receiving Christmas packages. Are we supposed to open them on Christmas Day? Because I'm definitely not waiting...sorry, Santa!
Hope y'all are filling up these final Advent days with some of your favorite things, too. Check out my sweet friend Kristen's favorite beauty things and enter to win a favorite thing of Erin's (aka Blue Eyed Bride) on her blog, too.

HA - I didn't hear about the Beaver comment. TOO funny.

See you soon. XOXO.
