December, you beautiful and chaotic and wonderful month. How the heck are you?
I got this Amazon dress, and fell in love once I got it out of the package. The green polka dots are perfect for December. I wore it to work this week and got SO many compliments. It’s also important to note that I didn’t pay the $30 that it’s listed as. I got it from the Instagram account, Lulu Prime and paid less than $10. Follow her. You’ll simultaneously not regret it AND regret it. But also, it’s totally worth the high price tag of $30 too.
Lulu Prime strikes again. I got this sweater dress in burgundy and wore it to church last week with some tall boots. I felt very put together even if my mind is more chaotic than Clark Griswold’s Christmas lights.
One of my good friends from college was in town last week, and we met up for lunch then went to a local flower shop that offered wreath making classes. I had very little hopes and expectations, but once I got over my “I’m going to mess it up” tendencies, I had a lot of fun. It was therapeutic and smelled amazing. I’m pretty pleased with my final product. If you’re ever in Canton, Georgia, I recommend it.
I saw this idea at someone’s house one year at Christmas, and I loved it and took it. At the end of each season, I take all my Christmas cards and punch a hole in the corner then file them all on to a binder ring. So I have all my cards from every year in one place. Then I put them on my coffee table for me or guests to look at during the month of December. It’s so sweet looking at how my nieces and nephews and friends’ kids have grown through the years.
Speaking of Christmas cards, I’m a little stressed out that my Christmas cards have not arrived yet. They are supposed to get here on Tuesday. If anyone wants on my list, just let me know and send me your address. 🙂
Here is last year’s magic.
If you can guess this year’s card idea, I’ll give you 8 million dollars. Promise.
