This Weekend:

* I went out Black Friday shopping.  ON Friday.
{I boycotted going on Thanksgiving day this year.} 

I was pleasantly surprised at HOW MUCH stuff was left at most of the stores!
{Minus the 2 hour line wait at Old Navy which I refused to deal with.  And why would I? 
It was all online! Silly customers.}

* Friday night was a very special night.
London and I got dressed up.....

....and went to the Nutcracker Ballet with some of our very favorite friends!

Can you believe that this was my FIRST TIME EVER seeing this?!
{Gasp, I know.}

It was mesmerizing.
And beautiful.
And we already can't wait to go again next year.

{Reason #1,342 that I LOVE having a GIRL!!!
 Being able to do GIRLY things JUST like this!}

* Saturday we kicked it at home most of the day and I put the finishing touches on all of our Christmas decor.

{Pics to follow soon.}

* Saturday night Joe and the boys went to the ASU vs. UofA game.
{Goooooo DEVILS!  Another WIN!!!}
while London and I met my parents for chinese food and frozen yogurt.

Yes...I allowed London to wear her jammies out to dinner and dessert.

* Churchey-church on Sunday and then.....

...We loaded up our stuff and drove up north to the Polar Express.
{Details coming this week.  One word until then - M-A-G-I-C-A-L}.

P.S. It got down to 29 degrees that night.
 I don't know HOW you cold weather people deal with that day in and day out!
I've become a desert rat WIMP!


Things I'm Looking Forward to This Week:

*The highly anticipated Justin Timberlake concert....WooooooHOOO!!!!!

* Hosting our annual Christmas Recipe Club with dear DEAR friends!


  1. Looks like you had a fun weekend! I was wondering where you got London's dress for the Nutcracker. We are going to The Ballet West Nutcracker later this month and I love that dress!

    1. London's dress is from Target - from last year. Maybe google Target Christmas dress girls on eBay? Good luck! xoxo

  2. so fun!! First off, i love the nutcracker, i actually watched it on chrstmas even in London!!
    i cant wait for Christmas décor pics
    i want to hear about your recipe thing :)

  3. I saw the nutcracker once. It was great. The cold temps aren't tnAt bad, you just get used to layering your clothes :). At leather where I live, it usually means its clear out. I love to see the sun here this time of yer.

  4. I always love to see your decorating and party ideas! Thanks for sharing them. Also, your YW ideas have saved my bacon a time or two. Thanks for sharing your talents.
    I am wondering where you purchased the black picture frames that you have in the picture arrangement on your stairs? I love the different shapes and designs but I haven't been able to find them anywhere.

    1. Thanks so much! The black frames were all purchased at Hobby Lobby for 50% off! Score!!! xoxo
