It’s Monday. Opps, It’s Tuesday!! And I’m feeling refreshed after the weekend. Don’t you love it when that happens? I completely forgot to hit “publish” yesterday. And didn’t realize it till late last night. Hope you guys had a great weekend. I did everything I had hoped and wanted too. And even spontaneously snuck off to the city for the night.
Intentions for the week:
- bake Christmas treats
- caroling at GG’s ♥
- wrap gifts as they are delivered/purchased
- stay away from the See’s candy
- drive around to look at Christmas lights
- plan favorite things brunch
- watch all the Christmas movies with Bay
- serendipity/mojo’s fundraiser for Omega Nu
- sort Christmas bins
- sell Bay’s clothes (she wont stop growing)
- gym mon-fri
What are your intentions for the week? Christmas is around the corner and there is still so much to see and do.
Highlights from the weekend…..
Yaya’s reunite! Nothing better than kicking the weekend off with a Yaya dinner! It’s been far too long. New babies. New relationships. New adventures. So much to catch up on. Can’t wait to do it again. And maybe stay out past 9 🙂
Christmas Traditions //
One of my (many) favorite Holiday traditions….Christmas cards with all your pretty faces. I love them so much, that I’ve been known to keep them up well past May.
I’m displaying them the same as last year, on an old box spring from a Peterbilt. A couple of years ago, I saw them in the dumpster and convinced one of my co-workers to help me dig them out. I have two. So hopefully I can fill them both up again this year 🙂 I stole this idea from Marilynn that had one in her living room years ago.
Christmas Cactus //
I’m a sucker for anything white. Or gold. I can across a white Christmas cactus at the Davis Farmers market a few weeks ago. It was full of buds, so I’ve been waiting patiently for it to bloom. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more beautiful Christmas cactus. Fingers crossed I can keep her alive forever.
Hostess Gift //
I put together my first set of Hostess gifts this weekend. Anthropologie initial mugs. Filled with spiced nuts. Lori Carrion’s spiced nuts, to be exact. I can’t remember who shared the recipe with me, but it’s a keeper. Fresh rosemary + brown sugar + cayenne + more.
I tied a twine bow to a bottle brush tree and done!
I found these cute mini bottle brush trees in the Target dollar spot. I’ll show you how else I used them as you keep scrolling.
I set aside some time to get my wrapping on. It’s really beginning to feel + look like Christmas at our house. Bay came home and was so excited to see gifts. Especially gifts with her name on them.
The city //
Spontaneous trips to the city are always a good idea.
Especially during the Holidays.
The city lights are beyond beautiful. Wreaths in each Macy’s window. #goals.
When the cable car pick up is right outside your hotel, you 100% hop on. I was like a kids in a candy store.
