Monday Round Up: Friendsgivings + Holiday Blouses

Monday, December 12, 2016


Happy Monday folks! We are waking up this morning in Minnesota with considerably more snow than we went into the weekend with, which was zero. It is definitely starting to feel like Christmas around here now. As much as I do not want snow, I am just glad it snowed on the weekend so as not to disrupt my commute. I'm a bit of a Grinch. It was, quite possibly, the most beautiful snow. It snowed lightly and delicately for about 24 hours and it is official: Winter is upon us. 

I had a pretty good weekend, I cannot really complain. I do still have  a bit of a cold that started on Friday and kicked my butt a little. We finally got our nursery chair in and D put it together. We have been trying to leave the nursery open when we are home so the dogs can get used to it and the idea that something might be changing. D was testing out the chair and the pups were so cute I had to snap a photo. As big Walking Dead fans all I could think is D looked like King Ezekiel and Shiva. Anyone else see this?


Saturday was a bit of a relaxed start. I probably got about 10 hours of sleep, which was needed with this cold. It took me a bit to get moving and the pups took full advantage. Riggs likes to be under blankets. After several refusals on my part to lift the blanket Riggs took it upon himself to get underneath. He did a pretty good job, but could not get past his butt. Silly pup.


That night we had our third annual Turducken dinner with some friends. Turducken is a chicken inside of a duck inside of a turkey. It was kind of a joke we had about three years ago and made a whole dinner around it. Turns out, it is delicious and we have done it every year since. Our friends host it and provide most of the food and we all bring a dish to share. It is inevitable too much food, always. After dinner we meandered to their basement where they had set up, with D's encouragement, the game Rockband. What I think was meant to be fun for only a few minutes, lasted the remainder of the evening and it was hilarious. A few surprised us all with the mad skills, a few tried their hardest and some of us (me) sat and watched. Not a bad way to spend an evening. 



Sunday was the day of one of my best friend's bridal shower. I helped with a few items for the shower and was happy to contribute to the day. Her mother and her fiance's mother put together a beautiful table setting and food spread. Another friend and I helped put together some games and another friend got what was an absolutely stunning and delicious cake. It was a really nice day especially with the snow in the background for our winter bride. 





I think I say this every week but dressing gets more complicated as time goes on. A few weeks ago I picked up this blouse from Target's Who What Wear line. I cannot say enough about this line, I love it so much. It is black with gold silver polka dots. Umm.. hello? This could not have been more made for me.  I knew the gold would be perfect for the holiday season and the black would be flattering for my shape. For the price and quality of this blouse you really cannot beat it. I paired it with my Madewell black maternity jeans (stay tuned for a post about maternity pants). I love how they fit with just a hint of the ankle showing. Perfect for pairing with booties. These Quipid boots I got last year are a fav of mine and always amplify a look. These boots required a hipper jacket so I added my favorite leather jacket. Top it off with a red lip and I was ready to rock n' roll for the Turducken dinner.
