It’s been awhile since my last post – between the eight or nine holiday get togethers we had starting last Friday I have had literally zero time to get anything done. On top of that I caught a cold during all of that and have been down the past two days alternating between sleeping and binge watching Ultimate Beastmaster (check it out on Netflix!) and the Jurassic Park series.

Pregnancy colds take you down hard. This is my second one and I’ll be really pumped if I don’t get another. The first night I don’t think I had an hour and a half of consecutive sleep. Between rolling around because I couldn’t breathe and everything ached to having to go to the bathroom every hour because a certain little someone is starting to press on my bladder and getting woken up by my husband because I’m snoring horribly loud now – I have been absolutely miserable the past two days. Today I’m a little better than yesterday, so I figured I could suck it up for an hour and get a post up, but then it’s back to the couch to binge watch something else. 🙂

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!).

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.

It has been a LONG time since I did a bloopers post – we are long overdue for some giggles. Blogging is a lot of hard work and bad photos. So here is another round up of the worst of the worst for your viewing enjoyment. These bloopers are unedited and proudly brought to you by my husband.

 This afternoon we had our final Thanksgiving dinner of the year – after one more massive food binge we are 100% ready for Christmas! Our tree is up and there are even some gifts already under there. Fingers crossed that Alastor does not like the gifts as much as he liked the bulbs. 🙂

If you have been following this blog for a bit, you should recognize the skirt from this thrift haul post. It has since been ironed and looks so much better. 🙂

Here’s another Thanksgiving outfit idea! What I love about this outfit is that it’s casual but dressy and comfy but put together. Perfect for stuffing (and hiding!) your belly on Thanksgiving!

This scarf is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. I love the double sided option and it’s so large and cozy, you’ll just want to wear it everywhere. It comes 12 colors and I already have plans to buy the series 1 red and the series 2 green for the upcoming holidays! And that wallet? If you are in need of a new one, it’s literally the best wallet I’ve ever owned. There’s so much space and everything stays so well organized, not to mention it’s pretty chic. 🙂

Full disclosure: WE HAVE BEEN SO BUSY. I don’t even know how it’s happened – I suppose it’s just that time of year when time creeps up on us and smacks us on the back of the head with a cast iron skillet. Funny story? Getting smacked with a cast iron skillet is a true story. Not mine, but a relatives’. Moving on.

The photos are a little weird this time around. We haven’t fully adjusted to the time change and we were hurrying to get out of the house before it got too dark. I was in a weird mood and it was windy. Top it off with the fact that my hair looked like Hermione year one and you’ve got yourself these lovely photos above. 🙂
