Here are a few instagrams from our holiday festivities. Jonathan and I had such a wonderful time celebrating Christmas with each other in Corvallis as well as with our fabulous families in Washington. And, one of our favorite parts about visiting our families is getting to see all our sweet nieces and nephews!
The above and below photos are of our Christmas tree in Corvallis. What can I say, I LOVE wrapping presents and decorating for Christmas!
This year, we decided to spend Christmas Eve with my family and Christmas day with Jonathan’s. I am happy to say, it ended up working out great! We had so much fun spending the day relaxing with my family and putting together this epic puzzle!
The above photo is the beautiful Christmas table Jonathan’s mom put together for the family! It was amazing!
Above is sweet baby Hallie and below is my cute niece, Elsie, who turns 1 today! Happy Birthday Elsie!
We spent New Years Eve in Corvallis with some good friends, and we had a wonderful time! I made this party hat for the festivities! And, the below picture is of our fabulous friend, Edie, and her super cute New Years costume!
We had such a wonderful vacation visiting family and friends! I miss them already! But, it also feels good to be home. I am ready to start working hard toward my goals this year, and I am looking forward to starting up school again!
Happy New Years!

Good morning! I woke up to snow outside my window this morning! So magical! Now it really feels like Christmas!
Today I wanted to do another budget fashion post for you. For this post, I picked out a popular fashion trend and found were you can get the look for less. I chose the beautiful “Peplum Dress” because it is so elegant and fun. The price tag on this dress can be quite expensive, but I found a really cute version of this dress at Target for much less! This dress would be great for a fun Christmas party or a Christmas Eve service.
You can see the Alice + Olivia dress here and the Target dress here.
Hi friends! Happy Monday! We are quickly approaching Christmas, and I am getting so excited! We did a bunch of Christmas shopping over the weekend. It felt really good to start checking off things from our Christmas to do list.
Do you remember my Holiday Party Playlist I made for you last week? Well, I decided to make a playlist on Spotify for you so you could access it yourself! Hooray! That is another thing you can mark off your list if you haven’t already made a playlist for all your holiday parties. Just click this link Christmas Playlist and it will take you to my playlist. Enjoy!
Happy Friday! I am so happy it is almost the weekend! It has been a busy week so I am excited to do a little relaxing and go on a date with my fabulous husband!
Today I have a basic DIY for you! I thought I would share with you my favorite gift wrapping tricks. First and foremost, my favorite way to wrap gifts is with brown kraft paper. It is a must craft item I keep in my house at all times. I love it because you can make all your gifts look different depending on how you want to accent the kraft paper. Below I have showed you two ways I love to wrap my gifts with kraft paper. There are millions of other great ways to wrap presents, but these are just a couple of fun examples!
Vintage Tags: All you will need for this is kraft paper, a fun type of twine and vintage tags. For mine, I used red and white striped twine, and I wrapped it around the gift three times. Then, I tied a bow with the tag attached to the twine.
Painted Letter: For this gift you will need kraft paper, paint, a paint brush and a stencil of the letter of your choice. I securely placed the letter stencil on the top of the wrapped gift, and then painted the inside of the stencil red. I also accented the red letter with a little bit of gold paint. Voila!
What is your favorite gift wrapping tips?

Happy Monday friends! How was your weekend? We were home this weekend! It was so nice to catch up on life after being out of town so much lately! The weekend was filled with lots of Christmas shopping and wrapping presents. I seriously love wrapping presents! It is so fun to wrap gifts with beautiful paper and ribbon. Does anyone else feel that way or am I alone in this department?
Today I have created a fun holiday party playlist for you. It is a compilation of some of my favorite Christmas songs. I have been listening to Christmas music non-stop lately so I thought I would give out my recommendations of some great music for the holidays. Some of the music is nostalgic from my childhood while others are classics. Enjoy!
Hello friends! I have another fun DIY for you today! Remember the post awhile back where I showed you how to make a fun pom pom garland for a party? Well, here is another fun use for the pom pom garland – Christmas tree garland! Use the instructions here to create the garland and then just stream it up around your tree. I used bright red poms with white thread for my Christmas tree garland. I was so happy with how it turned out I decided not to even hang ornaments! Here are a few more pictures of how our tree turned out. Enjoy!
Happy Friday friends!
