We've had this bronze/copper/gold decor for a few years now. I added in a little leopard this year and we're planning to completely redo the tree and mantel next year.
(New stockings coming next year too.)
Outdoor wreath that I made...
(I never took a pic of the urn/tree and other outside decor and I'm too lazy and warm to go outside and take one now - but I will this week! ;)
Last week at the Christmas parade -- She does this EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I take a picture with my flash. (That's why I only posted one of the 25 I took.)
This baby is obsessed with the baby in the mirror. We have to fight her for "shuggies" but this little toy (and Pooh) gets at least 15 fight-free kisses a day.
My mom and I went shopping last Saturday to finish up Christmas shopping (mostly for Benjie). I found a lot of good deals and we finished off the day by scarfing down a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts all by ourselves.
This was my favorite find of the day...
I have been wanting a Le Creuset braiser for FOREVER. I found one for $100 bucks at TJ Maxx! It's not my ideal color -- but to save $200, it could be poop green.
Lily Kate had her birthday portraits last Wednesday, so earlier in the week we tried on all of our outfits to make sure they still fit -- this is a personal favorite!
I also stayed up until 1am making this turkey a cake to smash.
I CANNOT wait to show y'all the pictures! She didn't smile much (she was in a very serious mood for some reason), but we still got some good shots.
This is now how my child sleeps. I've tried (quickly) swapping the bottle for a paci and she won't take it. I try to wait long enough to make sure she's in a deep sleep before I take it out of her mouth but she always wakes up grabbing for it. I'm not sure what we're going to do when we start weening the bottles in a few weeks. :/ Any pointers?
Along with the Christmas cards, I had another "Oh no" moment yesterday. Benjie surprised me with a really nice spa gift certificate the night before LK was born. I realized yesterday I haven't used it all and it expires next week! I got a massage today, but I still have to figure out time to get 2 more massages in the next 8 days! What a terrible problem to have! Ha!
We have a busy week/weekend, so more pictures to come! I also have a post coming about LK's party and our "house mess". You'll see.
