Merry Christmas Eve to those that celebrate! This past Saturday we had our annual girls gift exchange and brunch at my house - everyone brought such yummy food and great company! It was also a fun excuse to deck the house up for the holidays and one of my favorite new decor pieces was this Minda Home Pom Pom Stocking. Our theme for our gift exchange was a take on "Oprah's Favorite Things" so all the girls brought a favorite item and we played a white elephant type of game. Lots of holiday fun! Hope you have a wonderful day with family and friends! Be back tomorrow with our holiday card. XOXO

Fabulous Friday

Christmas books for Hudson including this [we named our elf Buddy!]. 

Made this "Santa's Cookies" recipe [subbed gluten free flour] ... dangerously delicious!

A sweet + perfectly wrapped Christmas care package from our friends ... Hudson was especially obsessed with this!

The last weekend before Christmas, can you believe it?! I always love the week leading up to Christmas Day ... it feels extra festive baking, wrapping presents and spending time with friends and family. Tomorrow we are having our annual girl's holiday gift exchange brunch so I will share a few photos from that next week along with our holiday cards and Hudson's room update! I totally dropped the ball on making some more Gift Guides but view all my previous ones here or on my Pinterest page if you still need shopping ideas! XOXO

How I Spent My... Thanksgiving

Hope you all had a fun filled Thanksgiving week! We had a great time on Thursday at my sister's house [Hudson loved playing with his cousins!] and on Saturday we continued the celebration at our annual 'Friendsgiving' at my girlfriend's house. Always so nice to get together during the holiday season! I also started decorating for Christmas ... Buddy, the Elf on the Shelf, made his first appearance at our house Sunday night and Hudson is obsessed! XOXO
