Monday Morning Musings | No. 282

Good morning and happy Monday to you! I just sat down to write this post and as I was thinking through our weekend, I just keep thinking, gosh, that was fun!

On Friday night I got together with a few moms in the neighborhood for a little festive cookie decorating and it was so much fun! I’m so grateful for these women, and that we are all in walking distance of one another, seriously such a treat. And on Saturday we ran errands, swung by our favorite coffee shop for treats, and played “kick the ball” as Laurens calls it outside for what felt like hours! It was a sweet and low-key day!

And we rounded out the weekend at The Oxford Exchange for our annual tea (and story time!) with Santa and Mrs. Clause! We went last year and it was so much fun that we’ve made it our little tradition and one we really love. Ryan and I were married at The Oxford Exchange ten years ago this summer (WILD!) so it’s always such a special treat to go back… especially with Laurens in tow.

We made a whole day of it, and gosh, it was so much fun. My family came along and it was so cute to see the cousins excited (… and then not so much, ha!) about Santa and the cookies!!

Anyways, it was a really great festive and slow weekend, which is great since this next week is our marathon-of-events week and I can’t wait! Not I’m off to write a to-do list a million miles long… so cheers to Monday and the five things I’m loving!

5 Things I’m Loving

A few fun things I’m loving right now…


Headbands on Repeat

I go in and out of stages with headbands and I’m currently back in one! I love J.Crew headbands because I can always count on them not hurting my head! This one is really pretty and over 50% off right now!

The Perfect Red Lip

I’ve gotten into YSL lipstick this year and, well, I understand the hype! This red (“Brick Red”) is so very good and if you are looking for a great stocking stuffer or just a little something to make your look *pop* this season, this color is VERY good.

Matching PJs!

My sister-in-law and I ordered these matching pjs this year and I can’t wait to be in the kitchen together on Christmas morning in our matching outfits! The count down to cinnamon rolls is officially on!

The Best Sparkle

I know I sound like a broken record when it comes to Dorsey, but gosh, the sparkle is SO GOOD. I just got these earring in and they shiiiine, plus they are under $200! Would make such a fabulous gift. I’m SO VERY into them.

Fancy Pants

Okay, I’m ordering this whole look from Tuckernuck! We have some fun travel coming up and I think it’s such a fun event look! Very into the entire set but also the separates are fabulous on their own.
