Fun with Friends and Family and Giveaway Winner!

Morning and happy Monday, friends. I hope you enjoyed your first December weekend. Mine was crazy busy but a lot of fun. I could totally use some extra a sleep, but hey, that's life right?

This weekend I…

… woke up early Friday morning to participate in Hypothermia relief. These smiles make it worth the early alarm.
< 3 my sisters!
… went to my dermatologist for a second round of laser treatments for my skin damage. #ouchbutworthit

… skipped the gym and went to dinner with Mama B and Daddy. #lovemesomecheese
My favorite go to meal.
… after dinner went to pick out my parent's Christmas tree. It was fun spending time with them and not having to argue with two other minions, heehee. Aren't my parents adorable? #yestheyare!
We found THE Tree & a Pinky tree!
… went home and passed out super early because I was exhausted from the early morning.

… woke up refreshed on Saturday and prepped homemade Cinnamon Carmel Party popcorn for a friend.
SUCH A GREAT HOSTESS GIFT!
… finally wore my FAAAABULOUS shearling vest from Pearl & Monroe. #lovelovelove
LOVE!
… enjoyed a wonderful evening with a group of fabulous couples. Everyone met playing kickball and most have kids now so it's tough to get everyone together.  The men all put everything together and Le Husband's contribution was the main course. It was insanely delicious and the guys did a fantastic job of putting everything on for the women. The company was just as amazing as the food so it was definitely a weekend for the record books. We already have our next evening planned and I can't wait. #bringonthegamehensandgames #swapitup #lovemyladies
SUCH AN INCREDIBLE PRIME RIB ROAST!

… arrived home much later than expected and paid for it the next morning.

… rallied to make it to church to watch my parents sing in the choir during our carols service. They did so well and were so cute up there in the loft. I love supporting my family and celebrating Christmas.
Cheers to pretty music!
… ate a delicious brunch then went home to decorate the family Christmas tree. I love the tradition of waiting for everyone to decorate and enjoy the fun banter while remembering ornaments. Hard to believe we used to have my ornaments on the tree, it was decorated on EVERY branch. #familytraditionsmakemesmile
Family Christmas tree is soooooooo pretty all done!
… played in a soccer game. Had a goal but lazy people on the team kept us from winning, RUDE!

… stood in line for Pollo Rico for over thirty minutes. Yes it was worth it but slow ordering people annoy me.

… came home and finally finished decorating the apartment and the tree. My ornaments make me smile every year and I love all the fun touches around our home. I can't wait to share all the festivities with y'all.
Travel and wedding ornaments are my favorite!
… took the token 'CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE' picture! #lovethisseason
Christmas time is here!
… caught up on blogs, prepped for the week and watched one of our shows. It was a long busy weekend so I decided to call it an early night. #yesimoldandidontcare.

Before you leave, I wanted to announce the winner of our giveaway. CONGRATS, Ashley Bree! Kristin will email you to get your address for all the goodies. Thanks to everyone who participated, I wish you ALL could have won! Hope you have a GREAT Monday!
