all sorts of merriment

Friday, December 14, 2012

tuesday, we had lunch with my old work how i miss them, especially this time of year. so glad we could all set aside some time to catchup over lunch and talk! even better, miss caroline got to meet sweet maddie, which made her day! such a darling picture, too ;)
it's december, yet i caved and bought caroline her first swimsuit for 2013...1) it was 30% off so it was a major deal and 2) it was pink and just TOO cute to walk away from. see below and i hope you'll agree that she'll be beach ready in no time. baby gap does it again.

i have most of our packages wrapped...with time to spare! only a few more to go, and i will be D.O.N.E-music to my ears so i can sit back, relax, and enjoy the week leading up to christmas without stressing out too much.
i finally found what i think will be the perfect christmas eve's festive, fun, and still appropriate which seems to be difficult to find these days. here's to hoping it looks just as good on!
found at shop ruche
it's friday and we have all sorts of fun planned this weekend...visiting family members who are travelling through nashville for an early christmas celebration, dropping off our gifts for the angel we adopted from church, baking yummy treats to drop off at jeff's office, and plotting our santa claus visit. happy friday and hope you have a great weekend!! christmas is 11 days and counting ;)

p.s. thanks for all your lovely and oh so kind comments on our christmas cards...every time i look at them i can't help but smile and think "my cup runneth over". your sweet words mean so much.


  1. Oh my goodness! I may have to go buy that same swimsuit, how precious! Literally I just opened baby gap in my
    Then I should take a trip to nashville and Caroline and our girl should have a swim party date ;)

    Y'all have a great weekend!

  2. I HOPE we have a girl one day - that swimsuit is just PRECIOUS! I would have bought it, too!

    You'll be ten kinds of beautiful in that dress! Be sure to take some pics!!
