I had an eventful weekend. Friday was a nice relaxing evening, but Saturday was pretty busy. We scheduled our friend Christmas party and we were in our 3rd year. I really enjoy our Christmas party because we get dressed up, eat dinner and exchange fun gifts. We typically do a white elephant gift so it is always fun to see what people come up with. This year we talked about not dressing up and doing an ugly Christmas sweater party but fancy attire won out, which made me happy. I decided to wear a dress I bought for my anniversary this year. It is really comfortable and the cut is flattering. I spent a long time looking for a red dress that I liked. I like the idea of a red dress, however you have to be really careful of the color and the cut. This dress is a little more revealing than I typically wear but with the darker red and long sleeves it balances out.

So I have to confess something.  My outfit pictures I took the day after because we were rushing out of the house and I did not have time to take  photo. Here is the reason we were rushing out of the house.


My older sister had her baby on Saturday!! I have been on the edge of my seat for a little over a week waiting for the message my new niece was coming and I finally got my wish yesterday morning. I woke up to a text stating they were on their way to the hospital. She arrived via an emergency c-section and in a few hours baby Arianna had arrived! My family and I are so excited for her :) Both mom and baby are healthy and we cannot wait to spoil her. I got in a quick visit yesterday before our party and it was so great. She is really tiny and sweet. I am so proud of my sister and am grateful for another healthy niece!
