Weekend Roundup

Holiday Weekend


I know everyone says the same thing this time of year, but it’s true…there’s only 2 weekends before Christmas!!! Do you have your tree decorated and shopping done? We don’t have a tree or any holiday decorations up yet. That’s #1 on my list for this weekend, along with addressing our holiday cards. Oh, and I’ve got some serious gift giving to do. I feel behind on everything. Somehow it always comes together (even if that means paying for express shipping).


This week has been filled with ups and downs. Sybil is a terrible sleeper and it’s driving me mad. We’re trying some new things with her and the last couple of days seem promising, but I’m not holding my breath. She’ll grow out of it at some point, right? Right?!


On the upside, we had a great day yesterday…lunch with Jim and both kids were fantastic all day. We even had a 15-minute car ride where no one cried, including me, which is basically a Christmas miracle.


This weekend I plan on getting out of the house with the kiddos and hitting up a couple of markets.



I can’t get enough of real pajamas lately. Does this make me old? I bought these waffle striped leggings when J. Crew had 40% off. I initially picked them up in red stripes along with the matching tank top, but it was a little too much for me. The navy leggings are much more my style.



I’m growing my eyebrows out. For one year. I’m only 3 months in, but I’m holding strong so far. My eyebrows have been thinning for years, which I assumed was the price of aging. Then I read two blog posts about growing them out (read one here) and decided to give it a try. I’ll be honest, I have to fight the urge to pluck them, but if it means I’ll have fuller brows come next summer, I’m willing to give it a shot. Do me a favor though, don’t zoom in on any of my Instagram photos!



We had our holiday girl’s night on Monday. My girlfriend served this pot roast. It was so tasty. I can’t stop thinking about it and am planning on making it next week.
