On Sunday, Scott and I headed to a new-to-us breakfast spot in downtown Gilbert. The Farmhouse is a local favorite, and is known for having the best homestyle breakfast in town. The wait for a table in the tiny restaurant is usually 15 to 45 minutes, which is a bit of a bummer, but so worth it. When we went we only had about a 20 minute wait, which was just enough time to sip on a hot coffee from Liberty Market and to working on filling in a few sections in our wedding day timeline. Liberty is usually our go-to breakfast spot when it comes to Gilbert, but it was nice to switch it up and try something different. The portion sizes were huge, and it felt like were in an old hometown restaurant, small town charm and all. The Phoenix Metropolitan area is well known for their breakfast spots (Matt's, Liberty Market, Lola Coffee, Phoenix Public Market, etc.), and this is just another gem that I'm adding to my list - check!

I picked up this studded, army inspired jacket this summer on a whim for $7 at Nordstrom's Rack. Its proven to be my most worn, and well loved, fall piece that I picked up this year. I'm obsessed with the color and style, and find myself throwing it on over my five other layers every day as I run out the door. Fall and Winter really are my jam when it comes to style preference, and I've been really enjoying layering it up lately!

I ordered a swiss cheese and spinach omelete with homefries (my absolute favorite!) and sourdough whole wheat toast for breakfast. It was really yummy, and very filling! Scott and I might have skipped lunch this day because we were still full from breakfast when noon rolled around. We also got a refill on our hot coffee as we headed out to Chandler for a little Christmas shopping - Liberty's new house blend is so good. We wrapped up our weekend with cozy blankets and Christmas movies on ABC Family. So far Christmas in Handcuffs has been my favorite this year - Melissa Joan Heart will always be one of my favorite tv actresses (I loved her in Sabrina the Teenage Witch).

Today has been crazy busy, so I'm really looking forward to a slow evening at home. On the upside, Scott stopped by my work for a lunch date, we took outfit photos together, and he brought me some of the chocolate fudge we made last night. He's a sweetie, I tell ya!
