Hey everyone! Happy Holidays 🙂

 

It has been super busy lately between the holiday season, training for my new job, and the ongoing house hunt. I am feeling such an intense amount of gratitude lately. We have something in the works right now regarding a house, but I don’t even want to go into detail until it’s done- since we have been in too many situations lately where we were beat out on an offer, backed out, etc. The horrors of house hunting, am I right?!

 

 

 

Currently doing…

All of the Christmas things!

 

I am really enjoying every last second of the holiday season this year…I remember last year it didn’t feel like Christmas as much. Do you ever have a year like that?

Last weekend Frankie had off of work and we had the best holiday weekend filled with a Victorian stroll, a guided lantern tour of a historical home, and a winter bonfire with eggnog.

But my favorite part of the stroll…

Was the Christmas goat. OMG!

 

Later that night we headed to a guided lantern tour at a historical home…the home is that of a famous Hudson Valley painter.

Holiday parties…

 

We actually had 2 work holiday parties last week and I had so much fun at both!

This weekend my currently doing list includes: nothing. And it has been glorious. Today it is icing and sleeting outside and I plan on staying in and wrapping presents 🙂

Although I did make homemade pizza (mom even made the dough herself!) with mom last night. It turned out so amazing. Check out mama’s pizza recipe here!

#Decemberoutfits

 

I’m going to apologize ahead of time for the terrible quality of these phone selfies. Also don’t judge me for the bathroom selfies…the bathrooms at work have great long mirrors!

My all time favorite outfit of the month goes to this Pinstripe jumpsuit find from Forever 21…complete with my Moon and wolf sweater. I got this moon sweater from Target, although it was quite awhile ago. They still have some pretty adorable sweaters right now, especially ugly holiday ones! P.S.-I have quite a few holiday sweaters (and other holiday attire) for sale right now on my Poshmark too.

Sorry for the grainy picture…The moon sweater makes an appearance again,  this flannel is also from Target (their new brand Wild Fable that I love) and has become my favorite ever, and these hounds tooth leggings from Zara are another favorite.

Currently watching…

 

All the Christmas movies!

Anything on Hallmark is good to me. Even the cheesy ones!

 

And…this show is hilarious and very binge worthy.

vandal.jpg

 

The first season follows the aftermath of a costly high school prank that left 27 faculty cars vandalized with phallic images. Senior class clown Dylan Maxwell is accused of the crime by the school. He is expelled, but an investigation into the incident is launched by sophomore Peter Maldonado, with help from his friend Sam Ecklund, to uncover whether Dylan was the one truly behind the crime.

The second season follows Peter and Sam as they investigate a new crime at a Catholic private high school after their cafeteria’s lemonade is contaminated with laxatives by someone calling themselves “The Turd Burglar”.

 

Currently Bullet Journaling…

 

My December layout may be my favorite of all time.

November gratitude: week 3

Listening now….

I am grateful for songs like this that bring tears to my eyes and have so much meaning of gratitude in them.

“I don’t care if the house is packed
Or the strings of light are broken
I don’t care if the gifts are wrapped
Or there’s nothing here to open
Love is not a toy, and no paper will conceal it
Love is simply joy that I’m home
I don’t care if the carpet’s stained we’ve got food upon our table
I don’t care if it’s gonna rain, our little room is warm and stable
Love is who we are, and no season can contain it
Love would never fall for that”

 

We usually don’t listen to Christmas music before Thanksgiving, but this year I caved!

Monday has come again and I  enjoyed a Sunday night snuggled up with a glass of wine and my computer on my lap to blog our 3rd week of November gratitude!I sat in the cozy living room with mama watching the Christmas lights around me twinkle and smelling the pine scented candles mom had lit. Tidings of comfort and joy… Puppies snoring behind me, too. I enjoyed every bit our last moment of peace and serenity before another busy week…

 

Week 3 gratitude:

 

angel I am grateful for the change of the seasons and the opportunity to embrace all that they have to offer. This weekend, that meant a holiday farmer’s market (in 65 degrees and sunny) and decorating for the holiday.

angel I am grateful for food in my belly and a holiday to celebrate one of my favorite things, eating.

Just kidding, it’s about being thankful…

And eating.Lots of eating!

angelI am grateful for the ability to express myself through my sense of style and through blogging.

And for a patient mama who can take pictures of me for my blog. Good thing she’s a blogger too so she gets it!

Here’s what I wore to the Holiday market! #OOTD

I am like a walking ad for H&M. The pants, shirt, and duster are all from there!

(Not planned)

I wanted these shoes all summer. I finally found them for $7 on sale at Target at the end of the season!

 

A not so typical 65 and sunny day in late November on the mountain top…

Someone else wanted to pose too….

 

angelI am grateful for our first big snowfall, my cozy home, and family traditions for Christmas. 

(By the way- this was Saturday night into Sunday- right after our 65 and sunny day!)

We decorated on Saturday with the warm weather and felt lucky to wake up to snow and be able to enjoy our Christmas decorations with the snow falling outside.

With Thanksgiving upcoming, what are you grateful for?

 

Outfit of the day: Flamingo dress!

Listening now…

 

I had to share this little Flamingo dress I scored from one of my Goodwill thrifting hauls.

Today is the first day I am wearing it since purchasing and I couldn’t be happier!

The brand is Roxy– I purchased the dress for about $6 at Goodwill and it seems to be about a $50 value. I found the dress online here.

It is a silky like fabric, making it really comfortable and flowy. You can’t tell in the pictures, but the back is open and the neckline is plunging- it will look great with a bandeau underneath and I will definitely be wearing it like that this summer-but today I wore it for work, so obviously had to wear a tank underneath.

I paired it with my Vans- [I recently talked about my love for them here]

Another thing I love about this dress is that it gets longer in the back- adding a little bit more character, as well as modesty.

I never knew how many things you could do with Picmonkey!

 

 

I hope you all have a lovely day!

Outfit of the day: Mickey Mouse rules all

♫ Listening now…

 


Happy new year all! I hope you are sincerely enjoying and making the first day of 2016 count.

I went to see a friend I haven’t seen in a little while for dinner and a movie- we went to a brick oven pizza place I love and saw the movie Joy with Jennifer Lawrence (love her)-highly recommend it! If you haven’t seen the trailer, here it is: Joy trailer

I figured out how to use the timer on my camera and started using the tripod for these kinds of posts- so Im excited!

Here’s a little outfit of the day:

Mickey Mouse hat from urban outfitters; vest from Goodwill which is the brand Wilsons leather

“It will all shake out. Meanwhile, I’m putting up more twinkle lights.” – You’ve got mail

Ohhh these shoes. I am obsessed. I scored there at H&M on sale for $15- they are also super comfortable and don’t feel like I am wearing any heel at all.

“You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way that you select your clothes every day. “

I was gifted this cool dangly earring[not sure the real name for these] for Christmas by a dear love of mine, and this purple sparkly eyeliner from mama.

“The most important work you will ever do will be within the walls of your own home.”
