It has been chilly lately and I've been taking full of advantage of the cold to bundled up and put my cold weather digs to good use. The cold has also been definitely putting me in the Christmas spirit, and every evening this week I've found myself either decorating, Christmas shopping, or baking some yummy treats. The holidays always seem to go by so fast, so I'm taking every moment I can to enjoy the season while it's here. Scott and I were just talking about how we haven't been feeling panicked about the wedding because we've been so distracted with Christmas. We'll just call it a blessing in disguise!

I'm really excited for all our upcoming holiday plans. Tomororw is my work's "End of Year" breakfast. Everyone's brings in a dish for a potluck style breakfast, and we're going to eat and play team games together. This year my team is dressing up like classic Christmas movie characters! I'm still not sure who I'm going to dress up as. Any suggetions? Saturday evening is my work Christmas party and we're having it at a really cool space in downtown Phoenix. From what I've heard, we're going to have yummy food, games, music, and a slightly embarrassing presentation. Oh joy! ;) My bridal shower is also on Saturday and I really excited to spend a few hours with some of my favorite ladies!

This weekend I'm also hoping to pick up my wedding band (!!!). Last weekend Scott and I went ring shopping together and ended up leaving with two bands that we both love. Scott's band fit him perfectly right off the bat, but mine had to be taking in a bit. I've been teasing him that I'm going to start wearing it after we pick it up, but truthfully, I'm going to wait until our wedding day. I can't wait until he puts it on my finger and calls me his wife. We've got just over a month to go!

Tonight I plan on making something to bring to our potluck breakfast tomorrow, sip on some hot coco, wrap a few presents (didn't quite get to it last night like I had planned to), and pick out what I'm going to wear to my work holiday party. The dress code is "Christmas Casual," so I'm thinking that I could either go really dressed up, or just wear some dark jeans and a pretty blouse. We'll see come Saturday, I guess!

  1. So excited for you and Scott! I love hearing all your wedding updates:)

    I'm really looking forward to wrapping some presents. But I probably should shop for all my gifts first. Ha!

  2. We recently experienced an unusual cold snap in San Francisco and I, for one, was really digging it. I love getting bundled up for walks in the crisp air and getting cozy under a mountain of blankets at home.

  3. I love your snuggly scarf! What a great one! I just got to know your blog recently and am really enjoying getting to know you and your style. Congrats on your engagement :)
