Christmas Parties

I feel like I'm so behind on blogging (and life in general)! 
Here's what I've been up to the last few weeks...

A few weekends ago, I went to an ugly sweater party. Let me tell you, finding an ugly sweater at 8 months pregnant was not the easiest thing, but luckily, Walmart came through last minute. 

I look like a freaking house
{Please note Mallery, 2 weeks before her due date here, did not wear an ugly sweater. I should have done the same! But I didn't know that was an option...} 

The very next night, we had Travis' work Christmas party. It was once again held at the Urban Garden at the Ritz uptown. {You can read about last year's party here.} 

This year was not quite as fun because A. it was on a Sunday night, B. I could not drink, C. Nick Cannon was not the DJ (and instead they had this extremely loud band playing....I couldn't even hear anyone I was talking to! OMG I sound like an old lady) and D. some of Trav's work friends have moved away/don't work for the company anymore, so we didn't have a whole lot of people to hang out with! It was still fun though, and fancy as always! 

{No one is close to the stage because the band was SO freaking loud! You could probably hear them in South Carolina...}

My dress is the one I was thinking about wearing to the black-tie gala we went to in October, but decided to hold off and wear it to this Christmas party instead. It was $35 on Amazon! 

And of course, we had a Christmas party at school....or, excuse me, a winter celebration. I put together those little "for your mistletoes" packages that have been floating around Pinterest for the teachers on my team...

{inside is a little Aveda Foot Relief and some nail polish!}

And then got my kids bags of stuff that they are always asking me for (post-it's for stopping and jotting while reading, Kleenex, eraser tops, stickers and then a whole bunch of candy). They loved it. 

I'll be back super soon to share some Christmas decorations around our house and Christmas with our families! Better late than never, right?!


  1. I'm really late in commenting on this but ... THAT DRESS. Oh my word. It is amazing!
