Advent Window- December 9th {and gratitude}

This pretty pink Christmas decor is far too girly for my house full of boys... but I can indulge in a bit of glamour here on my blog, right? That's what I thought. Isn't it beeeautiful?

Hope you all have fabulous weekend plans! I'm off on a getaway with my mom and my sister until Sunday night {we're "practicing" for New York City this spring!} and I'm so excited. We'll be staying in a snazzy hotel, lounging about in the hotel pool, eating out, Christmas shopping, watching holiday movies in our room, and just generally having a fabulous time. On Sunday afternoon, we're heading to a matinee of Christmas music at the Chemainus Theatre {remember our trip there last year?} I have no doubt it's going to be a wonderful weekend.

Oh, and since I'm in such a good mood, here are some other things that I'm grateful for this week, too!

* peppermint bark from Purdy's
* a Christmas parcel from the lovely Micaela {photos next week!}
* dinner out with girlfriends {paid for with a gift card I've literally had for years, and had forgotten about!}
* Christmas cards in my mailbox every day
* Burt's Bees lipbalm {with cranberry shimmer}
* all the twinkly Christmas lights in my neighbourhood
* paper angels with tinfoil wings = best bulletin board ever
* good friends who are always willing to help me out
* my best friend, who is on the other side of the world, but is always with me
* Barenaked Ladies and Sarah McLachlan singing God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen {listen and you'll love it, I swear}

Happy Weekend, friends!

  1. That is one of the prettiest displays. It's too girly for my home too (to a certain extent) but that's what blogs are for!

    It sounds like your weekend is going to be amazing. Can't wait to read about it. And I love fairy lights. They are beautiful.


Yay! I love comments.
