img_3961Hello and happiest of Fridays to you today. I am so so so so excited today because tomorrow is the wedding of my brother-in-law and almost sis: Kevin and Lyndsie. We are all spending the weekend in Dallas for the pre-wedding/wedding/post wedding festivities. Make sure to follow me on Instagram to keep up with all our shenanigans and outfit details.

In the mean time, I am linking up with my friend Erika to bring you my five favorites from the week.

Last weekend we traveled to my brother’s house in Austin to celebrate Christmas with our family again. Unfortunately I hadn’t seen many of these cousins since last year at my house and it was so good to see everyone. After our Christmas party, we headed to a local park to watch my niece Larkin in a dance performance. It was a fun little Christmas festival and the boys were exhausted when we finally headed back home late Saturday night.

fourth favorite:

Random Christmas Movies

James was home sick two days this week, so I spent a lot more time in front of the TV than I normally do. I wrapped presents and worked on my laptop and streamed several Christmas movies from Amazon that I had never seen before or even heard of.

They were adorable!!

Christmas Lodge is a movie based on a painting by Thomas Kincaid. It was easy to watch and very wholesome. The story is about a family who restores an old lodge they used to stay in every Christmas.

The Christmas Kiss was about a young interior designer who falls for her horrible boss’s boyfriend when she is assigned to decorate his family’s home for Christmas.

I cant wait for next week when the boys are out of school and I can discover a few more of these little gems.

fifth favorite:

These 2.
