We attended our first Christmas dinner of the season this past Sunday. Where is the time going?! Because it’s still early in the season this was a casual get together, I opted for jeans and a tunic rather than a fancy outfit.

As concerned as I was about the metallic tunic being scratchy or stiff, it wasn’t at all and I was pretty surprised. The material is super comfy with just a faint shimmer to it. I may have to get it in a couple more colors (it comes in 9!).

Reveal to my husband
So I found out I was pregnant on September 12th. I had had the most tiring morning – I could barely make it through my workout, the littlest things were making me cry or angry and I was just having a tough time. So as I’m cleaning the bedroom, I’m telling my husband about it and he just casually says, “maybe you’re pregnant”.

Not really thinking anything of it, I continued on until I needed to use the restroom. I picked up a test (I have a bunch since we’re trying) and did my business per usual. I waited the five minutes and picked up the test, ready to deem it negative and toss it. But, wait! There was the FAINTEST line. I am talking so faint I could barely see it at all. Immediately, my head went to all the things you hear about “if there’s any line, you’re pregnant”. Cue disbelief.

12 Days of Christmas Giveaway: Coconut Mint Drop Body Lotion

coconut mint drop

I never really shop at Bath and Body Works until I shop at Bath and Body Works. 🙂 It’s one of those places that I don’t really go unless I have a coupon or there’s a huge sale and even then it’s very rare. But when I do end up in that smelly store, I want everything.

During the winter, I typically lean towards more deep, musky scents, but this new Coconut Mint Drop thing has got me wrapped around its pretty little…bottle(?). It’s the oddest sounding combination but when you actually smell it, it absolutely screams winter. Mint and coconut. Who’d a thunk?

One reader will receive a bottle of Coconut Mint Drop body lotion and a little surprise from me.

Few disclosures. One: we’re currently updating our outlets, so try not to pay attention. Two: we’re also choosing paint colors, so also try not to notice. Three: I decided to play around with Lightroom presets because our lighting was really bad. Fun part? It’s still bad, but it does look better.

This outfit is perfect for a casual holiday dinner or date night out. It has just the right mix of comfort and sparkle to get your holiday spirit on!

Now, on to the massive news, because I know you are DYING to know. And I have been DYING to tell you.

One reader will receive one pair of these cable knit socks in their choice of color. And remember, all the giveaway prizes will include a surprise!

12 Days of Christmas Giveaway: Yankee Candle

yankee candle

I think I probably have somewhere close to 20 different Yankee Candle jars floating around my house. I’m one of those people who HAS to have my house smell like the season or holiday. It’s just not right otherwise.

This year, I picked up some new Christmas scents and I’m super excited to start burning one! The one I am most thrilled to try is the Aromatic Orange and Evergreen. It smells like a Christmas tree (which is important when you have a fake one!) with just the slightest hint of orange and spices. It’s very earthy and very homey.

One reader will receive a large jar Yankee Candle in Aromatic Orange and Evergreen and make their house smell like the holidays as well!
