Five on Friday

Get ready for the most random 5 on Friday ever!

1. We were out with some friends last Saturday, when my friend's husband noticed someone familiar on the Bud Light poster...

Yes, almost 100% positive that's Tom Schwartz in the middle from Vanderpump Rules. Hahaha. 

2. We ordered take out Monday night from the same restaurant we were at Saturday night (I was still recovering from the Christmas party we went to Sunday....I am not 22 anymore y'all). Maverick Rock Taco. You need to eat there if you are in Charlotte!!!
I got the clay pot enchiladas and they were the most amazing thing I think I have ever eaten in my life. I am not even kidding or exaggerating at all. I loved them even more than Chipotle!!!! That is saying A LOT!!!!!

3. I am LOVING getting all these Christmas cards in the mail every day!!!! 

4. I am starting to transfer my obsession with Christmas cards over to my obsession with Christmas cookies!! 

Yesterday, I made some red velvet chocolate chip cookies and gingerbread cheesecake dip for Kathryn's Christmas party this weekend....and I planned out my other cookies that I am going to make: buckeyes, orange chocolate chip cookies (secret family recipe!), pretzel cookies and white chocolate chip cranberry cookies!!! Yum! ANNNDDD I can eat the dough this year!!! {last year: no raw eggs while pregnant :(}

5. On Sunday, Ella is going to begin her 12 days of Christmas outfits!!! 

{this dress will be one of them...she is pondering what else to wear!!}

Now, she's been wearing Christmas outfits since the day after Thanksgiving (we had to do a test run to see which ones we really liked!), but starting Sunday, I will post her outfit daily on Instagram! Get excited. I know, you can hardly stand it. You can follow me @fergmindy!

Have an amazing weekend!!
