Happy Friday everyone! It's hard to believe we are at the end of November already and tomorrow starts December! Before we know it Christmas will be here and then we'll be ringing in 2019!! What is everyone doing for the holidays this year? Taking a trip, visiting family, or just laying low at home? We will be in Virginia for a dear friends wedding on NYE and I can't wait to see all of my family and friends! Anyways, our event this month was hosted at the Sonesta Hotel in Bee Cave on their roof top level! It's always a great time there with the nicest space, free cocktails and amazing food, not to mention our awesome and generous vendors! If you missed it or came and missed a vendor or two, please read on below and reach out to any of them personally if they can help you in any way! If you're looking for Christmas gifts, helping support these local business owners is a great option!
A special thanks for our lovely photographer Karissa of HorseFeathers Art & Photography!
As some of you may know, I am finally pregnant with my first baby and I am so so excited!! It was a rather hard and long journey for us but we've made it to the pregnancy and it's been such a blessing. I definitely fell into the whole gender reveal surprise extravaganza and I'm so glad because it was such a fun day with friends where we found out that we're having a baby girl! We went to North Carolina for my bestie's birthday, our 5 year wedding anniversary and to have the gender reveal party! A lot of amazing celebrations all in one trip! We started in the mountains in Boone, NC for the birthday party and gender reveal, then made it to Asheville for our anniversary celebration and then back to Charlotte to hang out with family and friends! It was an amazing trip and I've included some photos and our reveal video below for you to check out!
Hi friends! Who can believe it's already Thanksgiving tomorrow? This month has flown by for us with so many friends and family visits, work and getting the nursery ready for our baby girl who is arriving in May! Luckily our family is awesome and will help me with all of the 11 dishes I'm making tomorrow, yes you read that right and that number doesn't include dessert! We're going to have a nice and light breakfast, then start the cooking extravaganza! Afterwards we'll eat dinner way too fast and then play some games before we all pass out from a food coma! Friday we will go get our Christmas tree and start all of the decorating! These are just a few little traditions we have in our family, what traditions do you all have? I'd love to hear them! I've included my Thanksgiving menu below incase you all want some ideas or just want to see how crazy I am! I hope everyone has a wonderful day spending time with family and friends!

It's that time of year again and my goodness did it come up super fast this year! I can't believe Thanksgiving is in a week! We have a lot of my husband's family coming into town and I always do the cooking, although this year I'm preggo so I may have to ask for some help! Once Thanksgiving is over I get into full on Christmas mode. We always get our tree on Black Friday and decorate the house with all of our holiday decorations. It's one of my favorite days of the year! For those of you who are like me and like to skip all of the black Friday drama & lines, I've put together a shop local guide for you to check out! These are awesome local businesses, most of which you can place an order online or through the phone and you never have to leave the comfort of your home! Now that's my kind of shopping! Please reach out directly to the following businesses for all of your holiday gift giving needs! Let's support local businesses this holiday season and let one another know we appreciate them!
