Five Loves…

I am loving Free People’s Holiday Lookbook.  The looks go through the decades and spend time in Paris – beautiful.

Stripes and sparkles together in one – love.  Perfect as we head into the holidays and get caught under the mistletoe in…

Now, if I am ever blessed to have a little girl like this of my own, I would totally dress her in a cute sparkly dress to head out for the holidays – or just a fun mommy daughter date around the city, too.

Getting that first red cup from Starbucks.  Always one of my favorite things about November.

The leaves have fallen, but there is still plenty of time to play before the snow falls and covers them.

Do you look forward to anything with the start of November?

Much love,

Welcome to the Mistletoe Mansion…

Black Friday.  Did you shop until you dropped?  Did you head out early in the morning to get the best deals?  Or did you sit at home in your sweats, eat left overs and have a relaxing day?  Every year I talk myself out of waking up to do the early morning shopping and then in the afternoon I am sad that I missed out on the fab deals from the early morning, so I throw on some clothes other than sweats and at least head to Target to see if I can get any great deals on movies (huge guilty pleasure of mine), and I must say I am happy I went because I found three that I was wanting – but I had to cut myself off at three – plus, I was looking for Christmas gifts for others, not myself.  Does anyone else seem to have this problem on Black Friday?  I mean seriously, we are always looking for a great deal and they are everywhere on Black Friday, but we are supposed to be buying gifts for others.  When I do Christmas shopping I prefer to go to more unique stores, and I have a running list of the things I want to get people in my head and thought I would be able to get a few things crossed off my list – but no such luck.  Urban Outfitters and Patina let me down today and didn’t have anything I was looking for – this was very sad, but that’s okay because to cheer myself up I put on the Christmas music – starting with Mariah Carey “All I Want for Christmas” of course.  When I got home it was time to start decorating the Mistletoe Mansion and make it live up to it’s name (by only putting up mistletoe…don’t get any silly ideas).  We put on the Christmas music and made our sweet little haven festive.

Only side hugs under this mistletoe...can't get too crazy...

O Christmas Tree...

Well, friends, it is time for me to rest and curl up and watch one of the fun new movies.  Hope you have a restful and enjoyable long weekend!  Will you be shopping away?  Or doing any decorating?  What do you look forward to on Thanksgiving weekend?

Much love,
