christmas tree cutting outfit

We cut our tree down every year the day after Thanksgiving.
It's our tradition that my husband and I started this our first year married.
We haven't missed a year...
we went when I was pregnant and super sick with Zane in 2009
and with Lilah only being a couple weeks old last year.
It's one of my favorite parts of Christmastime.
We always go to the same tree farm near our house.

I always like to wear something with a little Christmas spirit.
And I am super obsessed with my polka dot jeans so I will definitely be wearing those.
And it has been freezing here the past couple weeks so a hat, gloves + boots are completely necessary.
Oh and I must always have a peppermint mocha when we go get the tree.
I am so excited that Christmas is officially starting on Friday!
It is by far my most favorite time of year.


Lilah's Birthday Party - Decorations

We had a princess themed birthday party for Lilah as you may have noticed
from my preview pictures if you follow my Instagram 
or my Twitter or even my Facebook page.

I will share her party details over the next week or so.
There are so many pictures that it'd be the longest post in the entire world if I did it all in one post.
I will put all the details of where things are from at the bottom.

thanksgiving dinner traditions

my family is extremely traditional when it comes to our Thanksgiving dinner
we like our turkey roasted with the stuffing inside the bird
{we all feel it gives it way more flavor that way}
but we always make so much that we have to do a separate dish of it also
my mom loves cranberries so we always have those
I like to have rolls so we've started making some for dinner in the last few years
you have to have mashed potatoes and gravy at Thanksgiving
it is a definite must
of course we always have green bean casserole
I want to make pumpkin or butternut squash soup and tartlets for appetizers this year
and you have to have pumpkin pie and whipped cream for dessert!



I thought I'd share with you what I will be wearing to enjoy our turkey day this year.
I cannot wait because it is definitely my favorite Holiday!
I am just thankful that we get to have yummy food on this family day.

I will be eating a ton of food this day so I knew I'd need something comfy
and something that can compensate for all the yummy food.
I hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving with your families and friends.
Happy Thanksgiving!



I have come to say sorry for the lack of posting but we moved on Sunday and we have no internet until next week so until then. It will be a little quiet around here. My house is a disaster and I also have a very sick baby on top of it. We had to make a trip to the ER on Tuesday night for Lilah. Plus we had her first birthday party on Saturday so we've been a bit busy and I've had no time to sit down and write or create anything fun to post. I'll be back as soon as I can get a moment to sit down and get a post written. Thanks for understanding!
