Monday’s Miscellany

- This weekend we went to our very first rugby game. I’m really not into sports so I was surprised at how much fun I had watching. Man those guys are rough. I know some of them still have to be hurting after the hits they took.




-My parents bought their plane tickets for their upcoming visit. Words cannot express how excited I am about this.

-We put up our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. We didn’t bring very many Christmas items with us so our décor is kind of sparse but it still feels Christmas-y. I am so, so excited about spending this Christmas with Emerson.  Even though she is too young to really understand what is going on, it is still so fun. Only a few more days and I can start dressing her in her Christmas outfits! Smile


-I am almost done with my Christmas shopping! Woohoo! Thank goodness for Amazon and one-click shopping. Smile Now I just have to get going on our Christmas cards…

-We’ve had some really good mail days over the last few days. My Erin Condren life planner finally came in. Love it!


I also got my first Birchbox shipment.  It was pretty good, too. I love the festive nail polish and the Kate Spade perfume smells really good. It’s pretty strong so I’m sure that tiny little tube will last me forever. I’m still on the fence as to whether the Birchbox is worth 10 bucks but I’ll give it a few more months..


-The best news of all is that Emerson’s nursery is FINALLY done. I was waiting on the crib skirt and it finally arrived yesterday! Smile My mom sent it a month ago but the mail got really backed up. I’ve been dying for it to get here so that I can post pictures and it’s finally here!  Check back tomorrow for the better late-than-never nursery reveal. I’m so excited!

-Emerson is feeling better but she still has a runny nose and a little bit of a cough. Fortunately it hasn’t affected her mood one bit!

I love your Christmas tree =) I can't wait to get our up!
How exciting that your parents are going to be visiting soon =) I can't imagine living so far from my parents - especially since they have lived within 20 minutes of me for the last two years!

So glad to hear Emerson is feeling better and I can't WAIT to see the finished nursery!

Can't wait to see the pictures of her nursery! Looking forward to hearing if you think Birchbox is worth it. I've heard of it but wasn't really sure if it was worth it. Your Christmas tree looks great!

I have seen rugby before it is rough. E is so cute. Mimi can't wait to see her and of course her parents. Anxious for the nursery reveal. I am procrastinating on my decorations. I should get busy. Love you.

I got a couple of BirchBox's from my sister-in-law, and they are fun! Not sure if I'd pay for them myself, but they were fun to get as a gift. Glad you had a good Thanksgiving weekend!

Ive honestly never seen rugby before but heard about it. I guess its just not that big where we are so maybe thats why.

Ive wondered about the birchbox as Ive seen it on a few other blogs but wondered if it was worth the price of it.
