|West Elm jewelry tree|
I am a jewelry FIEND!!!! I was having major issues with necklace tangles, so I put this item on my Christmas wish list.
It's not only pretty to look at, but it keeps my favorite baubles at arms reach so I can find them easily!
Revlon Photoready BB Cream
Revlon has always been my favorite when it comes to Drugstore finds.
The line of Photoready shades are great!
I've been using Maybelline BB Cream for the last few months, but when I saw that
Revlon had their own version, I decided to give it a whirl.
My verdict is that Maybelline is a bit more like a tinted moisturizer and
Revlon is more of a moisterizing tint. Make sense?
Soooo, I use the Maybelline daily under makeup and the Revlon on the
weekend or when I'm running errands and don't want to necessarily put on foundation .
Great formula, I was impressed!
|Too Faced Snow Bunny |
I hate when a brand or product is discontinued, don't you?
Sephora had a fantastic highlighting bronzer that I loved from their line, but when I finally got around
to making it to the mall to get some more......lo and behold---of course they've done away with it!
So, after milling around in Sephora for over an hour (which can set me into a huge spending spree, so I usually avoid actually walking INTO a Sephora....) I came out with Too Faced snow bunny.
I really like it! I use the highlighter white and bronze side on my temples and brow, and the pink on my cheeks, it's almost like having a bronzer and pretty pink blush all in one.
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
After reading tons of glowing reviews about Urban Decay's Naked palette,
I decided to try out the Naked 2.
These colors are so pretty, I just can't contain myself.
A great mixture of shimmery nudes to blend together for day or night!
If your'e looking for a palette that does it all, this one is perfect!
|Snake orb pendant necklace |
Like I said, I'm a jewelry fiend!
This Stella and dot snake orb pendant was on my wish list this year and I was so
excited when my sister-in-law and brother-in-law gave me this for Christmas.
I LOVE it and wear it all the time.
It's a fantastic piece to wear everyday with just about anything and easily adds a punch to an outfit.
I've had loads of compliments on this since I got it!
Mossimo Pearce pumps
Here's another great gift I got for Christmas from Stella and Dot.
My in-laws gave me the much-coveted renegade bracelet and I ADORE it!
It's funky meets chic when you pair this with a pretty watch!
Bond No. 9 Bleeker Street
Last, but not least is my new favorite scent!
On a shopping day out with friends, we ran in Pout!
I've seen the Bond brand before but never really paid much attention to stop and actually smell it.
After testing a few, I knew Bleeker Street had my name all over it!
The site's description reads:
|He loves his grill!!! I'm so glad he got a grill since he had been cooking up a|
storm for Gigi earlier in the week before Christmas.
|Tailgate food I guess....|
|He also got a wheelbarrow!!|
My mom has a very small one at her house that is entirely too small for him, but he loves
pushing it around. Now he can help his daddy in the yard!!
|After the parade we went to my Aunt's to have Christmas with my family.|
Nonna bought him a new hat!
|Nonna and her favorite little boy!|
|Playing around with "Nanny"|
My poor aunt still had a boot on her foot from surgery she had months ago.
Beckett gave her some hugs to make her feel better!!
These are my cousin's children that I love dearly.
All three of these kids were in my wedding as flower girls and ring bearer.
It baffles mehow time flies and how old they are now, especially now that Kailey
is allowed behind a the wheel of a car!! Seriously, am I this old??
|Ok, that's a bit better....|
|Took a few more shots at home of the tree before it got disassembled and|
put away for the year.
I can't say that I regret purchasing the artificial tree this year.
Not one needle to clean up!!
|Beckett enjoyed the Christmas season so much this year.|
He examined every single ornament he could reach
(obviously, the breakable ones were hung much higher this year)
|Here's one huge reason why I don't take as many pictures anymore....|
"Mommy, can I hold it? Can I take a picture with your cam-er-a!"
|Christmas eve night we went over to Nonna's to celebrate with my family.|
He gets to color more at Nonna's than at mommy's.
Nonna doesn't value her rug and walls as much as I do.
|Uncle Beau helped out|
|"Here Unka Beau, let's dump out the whole basket!"|
|Nonna and Poppa's tree|
|Beckett and his Nonna|
|Me and my baby B|
|Here's what the helmet looked like when Beau got it in the mail.|
|Here's the helmet after "Unka Beau" did his Gamecock DIY to it!|
|Beau quotes from Christmas eve:|
"If it's for Beckett, it has to be done RIGHT!"
"I wish I had an Uncle like me when I was his age..."
|On Christmas night, we had Christmas with my stepdad's family.|
Beckett was worn OUT from his full day, but he livened up a little to hang out with Finlee Ann.
|Worn OUT!!! |
We celebrated Christmas with my in-laws the Saturday after Christmas this year. Aunt Amy and Uncle Patrick came into town and Chad, Beckett and I rode to the lake for the day to spend time with them.
|An early present to open before we ate lunch|
|Nothin' but NET!|
|Gigi helped Beckett open some more toys.|
|Beckett thinks that every party should have cake. |
I agree, but I'm pretty sure he asked Gigi on the phone earlier in the week if there would be cake.
Of course, she made sure there was!
|Having fun with Aunt Amy!|
|Some of Beckett's daycare buddies.|
If you're wondering where he might be, just look behind the swing.
I think he was trying to swing everyone.
|Love that he's got his legs crossed in this picture.|
|I just loved this picture of Beckett's buddy Maggie.|
|Beckett and Georgia Nell.|
They look like they are deep in conversation.
|Already sweet talking the girls....|
|"Santa, I want a Backhoe!"|
|No tears on Santa's lap this year!! So proud of my big boy!|
|The next day, we went to Fort Motte for a Christmas get-together that our friends' have every year.|
You can see pics from last year HERE and HERE
|Yet again, he requested a backhoe!|
