today I like monday

Monday, November 28

Shoes: c/o Blowfish, Jeans: UO, Top: Gap, Coat: YesStyle, Pin: c/o Much Love Illy
Oh Monday Monday. I used to hate you. Still do a little. Not a huge fan of Tys leaving for work at 7 - just so you know. But today I like you. Today, you are bringing me Christmas. A Christmas tree, lights and bulbs, three stockings and probably a new wreath to be exact. Our very first! That's right. This is the first year we're not traveling for Christmas, thus the first year we actually have time to enjoy tinsel, blinking lights, etc at home. And by george we're gonna bring it. I'm looking at you peppermint bark, A Very She & Him Christmas and itty-bitty Santa hat.

You are too freakin cute. I'm a fellow byu-i grad and i think we even graduated the same semester.

Kristen Duke Photography said...

ok, I hadn't checked in for over a month and lookie there, you had your baby! Congrats! Love the name, and i love reading your mothering thoughts. I remember when I had my first, everyw here I went when I'd see another mother, I'd think "wow, you know what I've been through, this is tough but SO wonderful!" I've had 4 now, and the awe has faded a bit, but there is no denying that early exultant joy that comes from a fresh new baby straigh from heaven. Glad you got through the beginning nursing pains (ay yay yay) and you're looking at a full month old baby. It IS tough to see them get better, but with an 11 year old as my oldest, the joy only gets better;) It's just hard to stop and say...this is our family, its a difficult statement to say, even though I feel I should say it, but I'm not ready to. I'll never fully close that door to heaven.

Mandy said...

You look great! I have 3 babies and I know how hard it is to get me time! I'm glad you are adjusting nicely!!!

Our Christmastree isn't coming out till December 7th, on the 6th we Belgians have another holy man who brings the little children gifts ^^ and we do not ant to make him feel bad. Anywhoo, I LOVE this outfit! that brooch is SO cute ^^ x

Sydney said...

Cute :)
I hope this Christmas is absolutely lovely! And you're getting outfit photos out more! Very cool! Maybe you should do some with your cute little son :)

iamchasingthirty said...

Can I just tell you I am so freaking happy I found your blog? And at the perfect time - just weeks after I had my own babe. It's nice to enjoy the journey with other mamas...even if via the world wide web... You are a doll and are inspiring me to break out of my roll-out-of-bed-sweatpants-look. Oy but boy is it hard.

Shannon said...

You look L O V E L Y! Happy Holidays! :)

Sarah Kyle said...

You are so adorable!! How tall are you? I know that's probably a strange question but you look tiny and rock all your outfits anyways. I'm 5'1 so I secretly want all adorable fashionistas to be petite-sy too! Haaa.

iluslifexxo said...

Super cute outfit <3 I love your jeans! I had found a pair of red jeans at a thrift store and thought I had scored, but unfortunately they fit me to big =/ boo so I'm still on the lookout for a good pair under $20. Take care <3
