Monday Morning Musings | No. 233

Happy merriest Christmas week!

I can’t believe we’re here, the last Monday Morning Musings of THE YEAR. Happy merriest Christmas week, friends, and I hope you have time filled with festive fun ahead! I’ve been looking forward to this all year, from holiday playdates to Christmas parties galore, we will be doing quite literally all the things.

I have a few things still left to do on my list, like make our smoked cashews for our neighbors, wrap gifts (!!!), and a handful of other small to-dos! I’m hoping to wrap up work by midweek and then officially find myself on holiday time!

Over the weekend we packed in the fun and chaos with our annual double date at The Nutcracker ballet, a fancy holiday party (where I didn’t take a single photo!), pancakes, and the World Cup (I teared up… what an emotional ride!), and our church’s Christmas candle light service. Oh, and we managed to squeeze in finally buying a family car! What a weekend, truly.

I feel like I may need a day to recover… but we’ll do that after Christmas!

Okay, now that I’ve totally caught you up on our holiday madness, let’s get into the five things I’m loving right now…

5 Things I’m Loving

A few new obsessions…


Striped Green Sweater (Under $60!)

I feel like this sweater has my name written all over it! I’m thinking I need to scoop it up before our trip to the mountains. Doesn’t it look like the perfect hot cocoa sipping sweater?

Pretty Puzzles

Speaking of the mountains… we love doing puzzles while the fire is roaring and this one is downright beautiful. I love the puzzle brand Piece Work, have you heard of them?! They make the prettiest puzzles, and this collab is so fun.

Santa’s Little Helper!

Does Santa need a little extra something? This tiny bike (undder$50) has overnight delivery and a 5-star rating… can you even with the cuteness?! If Laurens was a bit older Santa for sure would have this in his sleigh!

$12 Sparkle!

Okay, these New Years headbands are so cute, but if you want something you can wear both on NYE and year round, then this one is for you! I just ordered it and it came in on Saturday, truly adorable.

50% off a Classic

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, Ann Taylor heels are THE most comfortable for the price, and I just spotted these black sling-backs for 50% off. Such a great find!
