Weekend Review and Giveaway Winners!

Holy cow, what a weekend! I don't normally have much to say about my weekends because we stay home a lot, but we were pretty busy this time. Matt works about an hour away so with his company Christmas party Friday evening, I rushed out of work, picked up Claire and met him at my parents' house (which is much closer). They watched Claire for the evening. Even though it was a company party, it was nice to get dressed up and spend time together. It's always a bonus that since Matt works for a food company, the food and drinks are amazing! 

Saturday we drove to my friend's house to get Christmas/birthday pictures for Claire since she will be 1 soon. I'm not really sure what to call them. Are they Christmas pictures? Or, are they birthday pictures since her bday is Christmas? Or should we just not worry because it doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things? 

Claire did a fantastic job during the day even though her schedule went completely out the window. And she loved her first taste of cake. We seriously could not have made it any better. She actually face planted into the cake. Absolutely priceless! I can't wait until they are finished. My friend did a fantastic job as always!

  12. Heart that vest lady! Would love it if you could join us for Monday Mingle again!:)

  13. I love this vest and the combo of hunter green and black - super cute! Happy bday to your little one! Susan

  14. You look gorgeous. I love the Hunter Green Sweater which matches perfectly with your Hunter, Green Boots (as in they are Hunter's and the color Green). Beautiful photos too. It never snows here, unless we go to the mountains.

    And booya about not winning any prizes on this amazing giveaways =(. Better luck to me, next time.

  15. Oh my goodness! It's fun for about the first month, then the snow just gets annoying. It can be pretty hard to drive in and the slush that comes along with it!

  16. This is a great outfit - I love how the polka dot top looks with the sweater.

  17. Thank you so much Alison! It was a great weekend! :)

  18. Thanks Kim! I figured if you can't beat Mother Nature, you might as well join her! ;)

  19. Welcome and thanks for visiting! I have a feeling I will be getting a lot of use from those boots this year!

  20. Thanks so much Kristin! I will definitely be linking up again! :)

  21. Thank you Susan! I can't believe she's almost a year. Time really flies!

  22. Thank you so much Ada! I think it snows way too much here. And it always starts at the most inconvenient times. At least we weren't going anywhere when we took these! It's too bad about the giveaways. I rarely win anything on them either!

  23. Thank you Rebecca! I looked everywhere for a polka dot top like that just for layering! :)

  24. Okay, so I just commented on another one of your outfit posts about how it might be one of my recent favorites of yours, but I have to say that this one is up there too! I LOVE IT.

  25. Thanks Brynn! I was really happy with how this all came together.
