We had such a festive weekend! On Friday night we made homemade pizza and then topped it off with a walk around our neighborhood to see the Christmas lights! I even made us homemade hot cocoa for the adventure.
And on Saturday we had friends over for a fancy Nutcracker themed dinner, which was such a blast. For the past six years Ryan and I have had a standing double date for The Nutcracker ballet with friends Rob and Kailey. Since this year we weren’t going to be able to make the actual ballet happen we decided to do a themed dinner! It was so much fun and we all decided that our seventh year might have even been our best.
Sunday we spent the day getting our life together, ha! At home church, lots of cooking, laundry, and FINALLY cleaning out the garage.
My only complaint about the weekend is that it most definitely wasn’t long enough.
5 Things I'm Loving
Electric Tea Kettle
Ryan mentioned over the weekend that he *may* want an electric tea kettle for Christmas, so I started to do a little digging. I know nothing about electric tea kettles, but this one looks lovely! We actually have thermal coffee mugs from Fellow and we love them. But tell me what you know about tea kettles….
The Prettiest Palette
I received this palette in a PR mailer last month and have pretty much being wearing it on repeat! I’m here for the sparkles. It’s SUCH a pretty palette and would make a fabulous stocking stuffer. Plus it’s on sale for under $30! Which honestly is a steal, I love this thing.
December’s Book Club
Did you hear?! We are reading one of my FAVORITE books for our December Book Club and if you haven’t yet, scoop up a copy! It’s such a fabulous book and one that really sticks with you. I even picked it up for a friend for Christmas… I’m going to wrap it up with a pair of slippers!
