Christmas Day Snapshots


Noooo Christmas is over! I hope you all had a great day with your loved ones. Christmas day is usually a very low-key, relaxing day for us and this year was no exception. We started the morning with cinnamon rolls and berries (have I blogged about cinnamon rolls enough lately??). Then presents! I love picking out gifts, especially at Christmas time! Anybody else agree that boys are extremely hard to shop for though? We lounged around, snacked, and colored in our Pj’s the rest of the day. It’s the perfect way to prepare for after Christmas shopping, am I right? : )

I also want to say a quick thanks to YOU. It’s been super fun chatting with some of you and finding lots of really cool blogs over the past few months. Looking forward to more in 2013!

Store Snaps :: Dreaming of Tutus


I take iPhone pictures when I’m out shopping all the time. I like to remember things I saw that I either want to buy (like, when it goes on sale), want to make, or just thought was funny/interesting. These are some of my favorite store snaps from the past couple of months. I saw this tutu at Anthropologie actually back in October and thought it was so beautiful! I’ve made tutus before and this one is major inspiration for my next tutu project! I’m pretty sure these are still available in stores if you are interested!
