life lately.

Loving: Our trip to Chicago! We had the BEST time visiting family and friends. It was so nice for Violet to finally meet lots of extended family. And we ate ALL the food. In one week we had Cuban, Deep Dish Pizza, Persian, Mexican, Italian Beefs, Meatballs...and of course some turkey and pumpkin pie :)
Looking forward to: CHRISTMAS!!! I'm sooo excited to finally decorate! We're staying in Charleston for the holidays, so I'm looking forward to starting a few new traditions and make my favorite comfort food (biscuits!).

Working on: Finishing up my Christmas shopping. I have a lot of babies to shop for this year which has been really fun! I bought a few gifts from Zubels -- they are having a 25% off sale (use the code SM25 at checkout). 

Here are some other good Cyber Monday Sales:
GAP: 40% off everything (use code BESTCYBER)
OLD NAVY: 40% off everything (use code BESTCYBER)


Watching: Christmas movies. The Grinch, Love Actually, The Holiday, It's a Wonderful Life, Elf, Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, Home Alone, and The Family Stone and Planes, Trains, & Automobiles... will all be on repeat in our house.

Shopping: I'm dedicating a lot of my shopping budget this month to gifts but I did pick up a few things online that I love: this scarf (it's a blanket scarf that's not too overwhelming), this beauty set -- from my new favorite brand, and a personalized Santa sack for Violet.
Baby update: Vi is teething again. She has been drooling like crazy. She bit me on the arm the other day (!!!) so I've been rotating different Nuby teethers. She really likes this one -- it has crinkly fabric (which is apparently catnip for babies) and the teether bib combo (available in stores at Walmart).
