(Holiday) Weekend Goodness

Only five days until Christmas! Oh my goodness!!

I hope you all were blessed with a fantastic weekend and managed to get all the last minute holiday strings tied up! As you know I spent the weekend with my dear friend Ashley frolicking around Knoxville having a simply fabulous time.

On Friday we went to a tacky Christmas party, and after reviewing the pictures I'm certain our outfits were a success! Saturday we shopped all day and met up with fellow blog friend Kate from Southern Belle Simple. What a lovely lady she is! We had the best time with you, Miss Kate!

Documentation of the amazing time that was had....


My new Christmas motto- "Who's ready for a mistletoe scandal?!" Oh, and just so you know, I wear those pink Betsey Johnson socks and red flats on the regular. Together, they were tacky perfection.


We shopped around Market Square all afternoon with Miss Kate. We grabbed a drink at Coffee & Chocolate, had lunch at The Tomato Head and wrapped up our day by snapping a blogger Christmas card photo!


Ashley got me the most thoughtful gift! I squealed when I unwrapped it! She etched four gorgeous wine glasses with different font 'J's on each, and included a bottle of wine from Trader Joe's. Such a perfect gift!


What an incredible weekend! I feel so blessed to have such wonderful people to celebrate this special time of year with!

I have lots of Christmas goodness lined up for the blog this week, loves! I know we're all very busy with Christmas coming in just a few days, but if you're needing some inspiration please stop by!

Please send special wishes and prayers to Trish and Matt as they embark on their move home to New Orleans this week! I had the chance to chat with her on Friday and she has never sounded happier! Sending all kinds of love and hugs your way, darling girl!


Happy Monday!

I'm having glove envy...those black leather gloves are so chic looking. I think I may be adding these as a last minute Christmas gift to my list. :)
