30 weeks

30 Weeks - TEXT 2Happy Monday, everyone!

Now that we are midway through the festivities, I am finding that things are slowly getting back to normal. Not too normal, but normal enough. Yet, I am thankful for the chaos of the season in that the New Year is just around the corner. We have so much to look forward to in the first half of 2016! This includes a birthday, a baby, finishing school, finding a job, and moving. I can also see a light at the end of the tunnel in entering 30 weeks of my pregnancy, and for the first time being in the single digits for remaining weeks. Praise the Lord!

This will be the only time in my life that I will be week 30 at age 30. Little one, I cannot wait for your arrival.

last minute gift ideas

DSC_7958-copyThis post was originally inspired by Rubyellen’s Three Easy Gift Ideas on her blog CAKIES. While I couldn’t think of any friends or family members specifically that would relish her handcrafted gifts, I thought that each were so simple yet inventive and definitely needed a mention. 

These are some of her selections.

five best christmas films

fd5ce6431f92eb6be561441a41945acfFor me, Christmastime is synonymous with snowy landscapes, cozy houses, warm blankets, and movies. I love the feeling of being wrapped up indoors, and finally having the time to sit around and watch festive films for hours on end. Gifts and family aside, that quiet time is really something to be coveted. I know that it’s one of our household’s most treasured pastimes. 

Here is a list of my favourite Christmas movies:

christmas-vacation-movie-poster1. Christmas Vacation

homealone-poster12. Home Alone

4e32b121851bd78d6b48fd42c4de6055201409081953033. Die Hard

The-Ice-Harvest-movie-poster4. The Ice Harvest

Love-actually-poster5. Love Actually

What are yours, readers?

wish list : christmas ootd

il_fullxfull.843815624_pjpwPart of preparing for Christmas includes creating cute outfits to impress your nearest and dearest. At least it is for me. This year, I came across some seriously amazing items that I wouldn’t mind adding to my wardrobe. Here’s what can be found on my wish list!

37372919_001_dUrban Outfitters is my go-to online store whenever I am needing new items. This Crop Top is just to die for.

il_fullxfull.843592733_sr37Can we imagine for five minutes that I’m not pregnant, and am totally comfortable with putting my not-so-defined thighs on show? Great. Then I would buy and wear this Sheer Skirt by iheartnorwegianwood in a heartbeat.

_11333680This Marc by Marc Jacobs Domo Biker Backpack is what dreams are made of. At least my dreams.

il_fullxfull.780824556_8l8kThese Tiny Bar Earrings by GemBlue are incredibly adorable.

9876543_2fe6723e-dd3b-4a5a-9acf-d0b1a9c9b30a_2048x2048How cute would this Antler Ring by For Love & Lemons be, paired with those earrings seen above?

I think that I was a very good girl this year. Maybe Santa will bring me everything on this list?
