Ashley Brooke - Vietri

Garnet Hill Pajamas // Vietri Coffee Mug c/o

Holly & Jolly

We’ve been getting some serious bang for our buck this holiday season! I feel like I keep saying “so many holiday parties, so little time!” and I LOVE IT! Bring on the holiday party induced exhaustion, because honestly… if you are going to be exhausted, it might as well be from having too much fun! 

On Friday night we went out for dinner and drinks with my family to our favorite restaurant. We had THE BEST night, and I didn’t want it to end. I love when the six of us can get together and just spend the night catching up… there’s nothing better. 

And on Saturday I took Betsy and Katherine, my Ashley Brooke Book Club girls, to the Oxford Exchange. We had a champagne brunch and went book shopping as their Christmas gift this year. We spent ALL day together and wished we could have spent more. I’m so grateful for their friendship and all that they do to help ABD run smoothly!

Then on Sunday after church we had an impromptu coffee date with our best friends (don’t you love when that happens?!) and then we finished up decorating the outside of our house. A few twinkle lights here and there and even a Charlie Brown Christmas tree on the back porch! I can’t get over the cuteness. 

Such a fun weekend, I only wish we had a few more days! 

P.S. If you need gift ideas… I’ve got them

5 Things I'm Loving

A Cup Of Cheer*

I’ve been a long time fan of VIETRI, but guys, this Lastra Holiday mug is quite possibly my new favorite item in our kitchen cabinets! It’s the perfect size and the quality is beautiful! It would make a great gift for a girlfriend or co-worker, or just a little treat for yourself! I’m actually thinking I’ll pick up a set of the white ones after the holidays, because I know I’ll miss it! 
Also, if you are looking for a few other things that might make great gifts, these napkins are unreal, and this baking dish is my FAVE!

Heart Earrings

One of my girlfriends – Loren Hope – just so happens to be an amazing jewelry designer! Her work is absolutely stunning, and honestly, just fun! She sent me this pair of heart earrings last week and I’ve practically worn them every day since! Love a good statement earring… and I also think they make the BEST gifts!

Leopard Bow Flats

I can’t get enough of these pretty little shoes. They are definitely fun for holiday, but a pair that you can wear well past January 1st! Also, I don’t know about you, but I think these would be so fun to wrap up this Christmas!!

My Favorite Sweater

Joie is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands. I have quite a few thing in my closet from them and every single piece is stunning. I will say it’s definitely more on the pricier side, but well worth it if you are looking for something to last. If you like the look of this sweater but it’s a bit too steep, I found one for almost 1/2 the price here.

For the Boys

I still think the guys in our lives are always the hardest to buy for! Ryan wrote an excellent gift guide if you are looking for ideas, but I keep coming back to this mug for a few people on my list this year! It’s handsome, $25, and useful… how could you go wrong?

    I attempted to use your Vietri code on several orders and it was never accepted
