Happy Christmas by The Beatles

I hope you had a Merry Christmas! Just like Thanksgiving, this was our first Christmas that we didn't go home to visit our families. Hubby had to work most of the day, but we still were able to enjoy the holiday. I skyped with my family in the morning while they opened presents, made a similar Christmas meal to Thanksgiving, and then opened presents with Hubby when he got home. Afterwards we watched Elf, one of my all time favorite Christmas movies, and enjoyed dessert and champagne. So it turned out to be a great day. And hopefully Hubby will be able to take a week of leave soon so we can head home and see our families, because its always better to be together than on facetime or skype! :)

I love this outfit. Do I need to say more? This cardigan is so soft and the color is awesome. The white tee and jeans is a favorite combo, and the boots keep me warm. I will definitely wear this again!

Diamonds and Hearts by Chris Sigfried and Desiree Hartsock

Merry Christmas Eve! I am taking a break from getting things ready for Christmas before getting myself ready for work to write this post. All the presents are wrapped and under the tree, the food has been purchased and will need to get started tonight, and my laptop will be charged so we can skype with our families. Hubby works all day today and tomorrow, but hopefully will be able to leave early tomorrow. [I don't know how long I can wait to open presents! LOL!] Bentley has been on the nice list when it comes to not destroying the tree or presents underneath it, so I'm very proud of him and I know he's going to be excited to open his own presents. Tonight after we both get off work is to hang out with some friends and play games, just the right thing to be doing the night of Christmas Eve on our first Christmas away from family.
Sweater: Target / Cami: Aeropostale / Jeans: American Eagle / Heels: Shoe Show / Scarf: Christmas gift / Earrings: NY&Co.

This sweater is one of my favorites. Target definitely gets it right. I really have a lack of red in my closet, so when I found this sweater I was really excited. The scarf was a perfect addition to make it look like I'm ready for the holidays. And I definitely am :)

Oh, and this happened. Yes, we met Desiree and Chris from The Bachelorette!!! They were just as awesome in real life as they were on the show. Love them!!!!

Wake Me Up by Avicii

So I have a new favorite show on tv, Courtney Loves Dallas. If you haven't seen it, its on Bravo, and is about a fashion blogger from Dallas. Well, after watching her, she inspired me to get back to the blog. She has awesome style and has turned her blog and love of fashion into her career. I'm definitely not at that level, but do enjoy sharing my everyday style and life with you.

So here's my not perfect outfit picture taking skills. Sometimes the pictures don't always come out perfect, but that's the fun of it. This vest is a new staple in my wardrobe. I love the extra warmth and how cute it is. The shoes happen to match, which I love, and the striped shirt worked perfectly with it. So here's a new favorite look of mine :)

Still Into You by Paramore

Hubby has been working nights for the past week and a half. Luckily last night was his last for awhile. Night shifts mean cuddling at 7am when he gets home, going to work or doing things around the house quietly while he sleeps during the day, making dinner to eat between 4 and 5, and spending about an hour or two together before he gets ready for work. Bentley has been a trooper and doesn't mind snuggling with daddy during the day, but then has lots of energy when its just the two of us at night. We're both looking forward to having him around and awake more. It'll also help me get back on a normal sleep schedule... when he's gone I tend to stay up watching tv, and trying to wear out little Bentley by playing fetch. But there have been at least 8 babies born in the past few weeks that Hubby caught while being on the Labor and Delivery service! :)

So I like wearing my hair like this, however since we moved to the west coast, I really haven't done it like this a lot. I've been putting my hair half up, so it has the volume on top that I like, but its a lot easier to do when there's a clip involved in how my hair stays in place. I've also started dying it a bit darker than this... this picture was actually taken in September! But I love this outfit and I think a white top and jeans always looks good together. ]
