A Splash of Wine and Our Christmas Plans


1. Earrings: Charming Charlie (20% Off) | 2. Top: Madewell (20% Off) | 3. Purse: Halogen (50% Off) | 4. Booties: Mossimo (30% Off) | 5. Jacket: Kut from Kloth (40% Off) | 6. Jeans: Joe's (40% Off)

How pretty is this jacket? This wine color is one of my favorites for fall/winter and this style of jacket will definitely be one that you will get some longevity out of. That cut not going anywhere anytime soon. Joe's jeans are a recent favorite of mine and to find a pair that is on sale AND fully stocked in sizes is pretty awesome! You may recognize these booties from this post or this post. I own them in the cognac color they come in (which is gorgeous) and they happen to be on sale through Saturday night so make sure you snatch them while they are 30% off. They are super sassy and so comfortable for how high their heel is. I paired this outfit with some straight dangly earrings which can help elongate your face and make it appear thinner which is perfect for me this time of year (I seriously can't so no to any baked goods right now).

So, here is what our next few days look like... Tonight we are heading to church for a Christmas Eve Eve service. We recently started attending this church and I was thrilled when I found out that they offered a service on the 23rd. We have tons of family so it has always been tough to make it to church on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, which I always bums me out. I mean, He is the reason for the season after all! After the service, we are having a handful of people over to our house for a little dessert. On Saturday we will be heading to Tony's brother's house for a Christmas Eve celebration. I believe the head count is 45 at the moment, but that could always grow. With there being so many of us, we went to the gift exchange game a few years back and it has worked out nicely. Of course, we still spoil all of the kids with tons of presents so it will be fun to watch them unwrap their gifts. Tony and I will have Christmas morning to ourselves. We have had it that way since we got married and I cherish that time just to relax and drink in our special moments together. Growing up it was always just my mom, my dad and me on Christmas morning and those are some of my greatest memories, so I hope to have that for our kids one day (God willing). We will head to my mom's house for Christmas dinner, gifts and probably a round of Head's Up. There will be about 10 of us there and it is always such a sweet time. At some point in the day, we will also head go over to our sister-in-law's mom's house where the rest of Tony's family will be celebrating Christmas Day and our niece's birthday (she's a Christmas baby). Whewf... that's a lot, but I am so looking forward to all of it. What does your weekend look like?

Merry Christmas!!
