You guys, tomorrow is DECEMBER!
I have all the emotions: excitement, stress, giddiness, exhaustion, hunger, fullness, joy and more joy. I love December 🙂 .
As always, on the last Wednesday of every month, Sheaffer and I host this little linky party where we share what’s going on with us right now. It’s a little food, a little family, a little what we’re wearing, a little what we’re doing, a little what we’re watching and a little bit of everything else all in one post.
Here we go…
1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
This week’s MEAL PLANNING MONDAY is all about the slow cooker! Pull it out, plug it in and let it be your elf in the kitchen this season. When we have so many *extra* things on our plate right now, we don’t need to fuss with complicated dinners too. This week’s meal plan keeps things easy and delicious too!
Lookin’ ahead to this month…
…if you need a cocktail, try The Killarney Cocktail…
…or a yummy dip, go for this Pepper Jelly & Bacon Dip…
…my Spicy Sausage Biscuit Breakfast Casserole is perfect for your mornings…
…or try my Chocolate Gingerbread Trifle for the EASIEST dessert!
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Mix and Match Travel Agency’s trip to Walt Disney World!
I wanted to do something special for my team who has worked SO HARD this year, so I decided a magical vacation to Walt Disney World would be the perfect thing!
You guys, this was one of my VERY favorite trips! We had such a great time! I love Disney for family time, but it was the perfect spot for adults too.
We stayed at the Wilderness Lodge, ate yummy food, visited spots we normally wouldn’t take the kiddos and rode a million rides. The best part though? How much we laughed and laughed and laughed. It was just the best group of ladies, and I’m so thankful for each one of them.
Our ears, tees and sweatshirts are all Etsy finds.
Disney World during the holidays?! Even more fabulous!
If you want a magical vacation next year, make sure you contact us!
This was the first of hopefully many trips together. We truly had the best time!
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
Give me all the fleece right now. These cozy tops (like THIS ONE) keep me warm and comfy all day long.
How cute is this fleece with the navy trim?! It also comes in multiple colors.
And look at this fleece too! I wore my tall boots and headed off to dinner with my family. It’s just the coziest top!
…onesie pajamas 🙂 .
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
We had so much fun on our town square Friday night for the annual Home For The Holidays event and tree lighting!
Stopping to get our faces painted was a must 🙂 .
We also had to stop by the “fry anything” vendor for Smith’s fried Twinkie.
Love my peeps!
I love him too 🙂 .
I love so many McKinney events, but this weekend here is always one of my very favorite!
5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
I was dreading not finding Jingle Jangle, but I found it! If you want to see what else I love to buy from Trader Joe’s during the holiday season, check out my post HERE. I have photos and details about all of the seasonal and delicious goodies!
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
This could not be more true. Hahahahaha!
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
Don’t forget, right now, I have a promo code for you from my new favorite brand…
Right now, Laundry Sauce is offering my readers 15% off their first order with promo code SHAY!
I shared this last week, but let me remind you again…
1: They have three different scents to chose from. I started with Siberian Pine but now have all three including Egyptian Rose and Australian Sandalwood. I love all three scents and just rotate which pods and dryer sheets I throw in. Speaking of which…
2: Each scent not only comes in a pod but dryer sheets too! #theperfectcombination
3: You can either purchase your detergent and dryer sheets individually or you can subscribe and save choosing automatic deliveries every 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 months for a discounted price.
My laundry is super clean and smells fabulous (but the scent is not too strong/overpowering). Just a fun little something for those of you who are in to the good stuff too…or those of you who have been refusing for years but genuinely want to try it out now. SHAY gets you 15% off your first order today!
8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Right this very minute, I’m sitting on my couch typing this and watching (again) Daddy’s Home 2 with Smith. You guys, this is the funniest Christmas movie you’re probably not watching. It’s HYSTERICAL! We’ve now seen the first one too (not a holiday movie), and it’s funny too, but the second one is our favorite and very Christmas-y. You do not have to see the first one first to understand what’s going on in the second one.
10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
My uniform is on repeat! How cute is this sweatshirt?!
This sweater here is an oldie but a goodie! It comes in so many fun colors too!
And finally, how cute is this sweater from Target?! It also comes in other colors including two that are very Christmas-y!
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
Well Christmas-y things FOR SURE! ‘Tis the season!
12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
I’m not ready (yet) to look forward to next month. I like January just fine and will appreciate its slow pace and lighter schedule, but for now, I’m going to try really hard to remain present in December.
13: FAVORITE AMAZON PURCHASE THIS MONTH:
I tried this dress on but don’t have a photo (yet, I’ll take one!). I really love this dress from Amazon! Isn’t it cute?! I thought it was super flattering and very easy to wear. It comes in other colors, but I bought it in black.
That wraps up NOVEMBER!
I hope you have a fabulous last day of the month.
