|These kiddos all re-wore their outfits from Chris & my wedding! <3 Miles and miles of heart eyes!|
|The Bride and Groom! …And me 😛|
Immediately after the wedding (no, literally right after. Like, hours later) I had the honor of co-hosting an epic dino-themed birthday party for my BFF Michela!!! We had a blast playing games and wearing super sweet temporary tattoos and just generally having the best time. I’m so happy so many people were able to come and celebrate Michela!! <3
|I’m pretty sure she liked our birthday present… 😉|
|Jealous? Don’t I know it.|
After that awesome stuff, we had a bit of a more complicated time for our family – Miss Jessica got her braces, which is ultimately a good thing but DANG BRACES ARE NO JOKE on your wallet, AND for awhile it’s been hard for her to eat, so that’s just tough!
In addition to that, mid-month the boiler in our apartment had to be compeltely replaced, which meant that we spent four or five days living with my parents a town over from us. It was lovely to be able to spend so much time with my parents, so that bit was pretty nice, but the situation was a logistical nightmare with rehearsals and school and work and trying to coordinate everything, so we were very happy when we were able to move back in!

Another majorly wonderful thing I was able to do this month was attend my lovely childhood friend Lindsay’s baby shower! We have literally known each other since we were babies and I am beyond happy for her and her boyfriend Cody! Your little lady is mighty lucky to have the two of you for parents, Linds! <3
And now, here’s what I’m…
Cooking: absolutely nothing, but I’m in rehearsal so I can’t be faulted for it…this time 😛
Reading: The Accidental Creative by Todd Henry. I’ve only just started it, but I’m really digging it already!
Wanting: to take a nap when I get home, but instead I have a workout to do. Whoops!
Playing: the “Accoustic Pop for Work” playlist on Amazon Prime Music! It’s kind of perfect, honestly.
Sewing: ………………………….. still nothing.
Wishing: there were more hours in a day. Or even just ONE more??? Come on!
Enjoying: seeing everyone’s Christmas decorations all over my social media. We haven’t really started decorating yet but I love seeing what other people have done!
Waiting: for opening! So so soon!
Liking: these dividers! They go perfectly with the binder I talked about last month, and I’m a total organizational nerd so I especially like how practical AND cute they are!
Wondering: how our family photos are going to go this weekend! Eek!
Loving: the holiday spirit that’s already starting to fill the air! I’m a total sucker for all of it! <3
Hoping: the weather holds out for Saturday since our photos are going to be outside!
Marveling: at the fact that I ate a salad with spinach for lunch today. SPINACH?! Who am I?!
Smelling: the new Mrs. Meyer’s Orange Clove Scented hand soap. It’s seasonal and it’s awesome!
Following: through with my goals, even when it’s hard!
Noticing: how fast babies grow, how fun it is to smile with a kiddo, and how the little moments end up being the big moments.
Knowing: that our show is going to be AWESOME when we open on Friday!
Thinking: of how comfy my bed is going to be when I get home and can crash tonight 🙂
Bookmarking: ALL OF THE THINGS. (Although I think that’s always! haha!)
Feeling: Excited. Determined. Cheerful. <3
