A little over a week til Christmas! Yikes. I feel like I have so much left to do. I will say I work best under pressure though and this week is crunch time.
I finally got our Christmas cards addressed and mailed. I went with the solo picture of Sterling trying to open the door, it was too cute not to use! I am very old fashioned and traditional when comes to cards. I like the kind where you attach the picture yourself and hand write a message. Time consuming yes, but I love a gorgeous Christmas card. This year our cards came from Crane and Co and the photo was taken by the fabulously talented Julia Ryan.
Around this time of the year when I am Christmas Shopping, I start to get a little selfish. As I am buying gifts for others I start to look for things for myself. This quote really put things in perspective for me and helps me to realize I have more than enough! That’s not to say I still don’t browse for myself- I just try not to buy!
Sterling’s school had a holiday fundraiser this week. They had a bunch of different companies come and set up booths with proceeds going to his day school. I picked up this Stella and Dot Serpent Bracelet. I absolutely love it. I thought it would be a piece I could wear daily. and I am not going to lie the fact that Kelly Ripa has one and wears it all the time made me want it even more!
Sterling and I baked a batch of these Christmas Tree Sugar cookies this week, how cute are they? Although I have to say mine did not look nearly as cute as Martha Stewart’s- how does that woman do everything perfectly?? I will say by accident I bought regular M&M’s instead of minis so that was part of the problem-lesson learned.
Have y’all seen this Tory Burch Blanket? I want it so bad!
Have a wonderful and festive weekend Loves!
