i don't know about the rest of the world, but here in dallas, tx, it's been in the mid 70's lately. absolutely does not feel like christmas time.
below you will find a picture of my $40 prelit craigslist christmas tree. small, i know. 2 days after getting it AND completely decorating it, i had to take everything off of it because the bottom half of the lights went out and could not figure out what the problem was. the lights weren't budging, so what did i do? i spent hours literally unwinding them and cutting them off of the tree. then, i redid the tree with all new lights and put all the decorations back on. grueling. especially because it shouldn't be hot in my house in december when i'm trying to fully decorate a christmas tree with two little boys begging for my attention every minute.
with old navy's stuff and save promo and my rewards points, i just bought my sons $58 worth of merchandise for $0.00!!!!!! so excited about that. and about a week ago, i got two awesome memory foam bath mats on a groupon deal for $0.67 with my groupon bucks. who doesn't love getting awesome deals?!?
blaine started pre-K on monday. he loves it, which just warms my heart. he's so excited to tell me what he does everyday, which, so far, consists of play-doh and watching Rudolph. :) his older bro in first grade doesn't think it's very fair. lol.
haven't been doing much shopping for me lately, so no cool outfits to post right now.
polka dot top from j.crew factory
teal pants from target
platform shoes from steve madden
pink shimmer MAC dazzleglass shade "love alert"
here it is again once my new j.crew locket i got for my bday (thanks, sis!) and my new juicy couture handbag arrived in the mail today....
and here's some pics of the scottie dog outfit with jeans and black heels instead of black pants and flats...
i think it def looked better for date night!
by the way, i thought Breaking Dawn was pretty good! the entire theater erupted into cheers several times. oh, and taylor lautner takes his shirt off again! no, honey, i wasn't totally just drooling.....did he take his shirt off? i must've missed it. ;)
i was running late this morning, so i didn't get to do with it, what i had hoped. i think this would look alot better with jeans, maybe. but seeing as how we aren't allowed to wear jeans to work aside from the first friday of every month, i am forced to work with something else. so here i've paired the scotty dog sweater with the tartan plaid button down and black skimmers as well as leopard cap-toed flats. all j.crew, of course. have you seen their most recent catalog? gah. it makes me want to go on a mega splurge. no, mindy. you can't do that. you have christmas presents to buy. ;)
hayden and blaine are spending the night at grandma's tonight, which means date night for me and hubs to go see breaking dawn. i canceled my massage beforehand, because there's just no way we would have made it to the movie on time. but on the good side, i'll have something to look forward to soon.
got hayden's staples out last night. just took forevvvvver in the waiting room.
hubs got me an hour massage for friday and tickets for breaking dawn: part dos afterwards. pretty amazing, because i can't remember the last time he actually bought me a gift. wow. i was supposed to go see it with my sis, but what can you do when your husband finally does something nice? sorry, sis! it was totally our thing every year for my bday, but we will just have to make up for it by doing something girly together soon. like manis or pedis or both! :P
novelty sweaters, oh my. check out this adorable scottie dog sweater with tartan plaid shirt underneath. can't wait to dress up a pair of jeans with that combo. needed another pair of black pants, so there's the black skimmers. and i just love j. crew's polka dot sweaters. what do you think?
