scarlett style!




Happy Wednesday! Scarlett has been enjoying her post-Chrismas outfit options lately... Here's what she wore this week.





















She's been rocking her Christmas nightgowns a lot this week - I've had to literally take them off of her so I could wash them! At least they're super cute, right?

holi-daze...








Happy Day After Christmas! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday - we spent ours with family, bundled up in cozy pjs and drinking plenty of wine. A perfect holiday. 

Nick is home for the next week - so pray for my sanity as my regular routine is hijacked and held hostage for a while. I'm fully intending to take advantage of the extra family time though by tackling some random things that have been on my to-do list since we moved to our new apartment. I'm hoping to finally move our coffee cart from my father in law's house to our apartment so I can move the bookcase we've been using for our coffee across the living room and finally unpack my record player! My poor records have been in storage since July! And I'd really like to arrange my bookcases by color - but that's definitely something I'd need help with. 

I feel like this upcoming week could be a really productive one - as long as I don't get sucked into Netflix binges and popcorn induced comas... We'll see how things turn out.

blue christmas...





It's finally Christmas Eve! Well, I say "finally" and honestly, it seems like Christmas snuck up on me yet again. As soon as I start to feel the holiday spirit creeping in, the holiday blows by and is gone before I even realize it. I can't help but feel melancholy as we celebrate - like I'm already missing the moments that haven't even happened yet. Does anyone else feel like that, too? Like you don't want to enjoy the holiday too much because it's so fleeting? 

I'm always hesitant to put up the tree until around mid-December because I don't want Scarlett to feel like we're skipping her birthday in favor of Christmas since her birthday is in the beginning of December, but I think next year I'll need to put the tree up and start decorating a bit earlier than usual - just so I don't feel like Christmas will speed by. 

My list of things I wanted to do this season was impossibly long - and although we made fudge and brownies, cookies and gingerbread men, decorated the tree and wrapped presents, did Advent calendars and made [clay] snowmen, I still feel like we missed out. My goal for next year is to make Christmas last a lot longer than it did this year and embrace all of the warm and cozy feelings as they come. 

Maybe we'll start in July...

It's Christmas Eve Eve! Tomorrow the holiday celebrations start and I can't wait to see what outfits Scarlett has in store for us this season. Here's what she wore this past week...
















She had a doctor appointment, the last day of school before winter break and a trip to the movie theater to see Star Wars! All in all, a pretty awesome week.

Happy Wednesday! Scarlett has been a little fashionista this week - as usual...












Now that the weather is much cooler, Scarlett has been layering a bit more. So now she has even more chances to add amazing clothes to each outfit!
