Weekending {{Holiday Parties}}

December is crazy for us and our families, but this year is different. Gabriel's parents are moving to Houston, so they are packing up their home and we are trying to squeeze in every drop of time we can with them before they leave on the 18th. This weekend, we went to a gathering about 2 hours outside of Kansas City, hosted by my Mother-in-Laws family.

In years past, this get together has been wild and crazy. This year, we were pretty chill. Meaning, I just got slightly shitty, but managed to still eat McD's and fall asleep on the way home. Gabriel has such an awesome family!

We sat around having a hen party and sexually harassing dudes on tinder. Turns out, most of the dudes on tinder are lame asses.

As an exit ticket to leave the party, the hostess has each family take a photo in front of the tree. I LOVE THIS!

Gabriel's family, including his sister and brother-in-law who came in from Houston. We've already planned our trip in March to come see the new baby! Sarah has been buying her wrap dresses from Pink Blush Maternity online and raves about how awesome and inexpensive the clothes are. Her dress from the baby shower also came from there. My tunic is the one every blogger and her mama has from Nordstrom and my skinnies are from Express. If you haven't tried Express's denim, you  should! It's stretchy, but still holds it shape and comes in mid-rise, so your butt crack doesn't show.

I embarrass Gabriel so much by smooching on him. I just can't help myself. He looks os fine! 

This upcoming weekend is my 30th birthday, so I'm hoping to see more friends and family! Have your holiday parties started? What do the holidays look like for you guys?


  1. Looks like you guys had a great time at the party! Love the by the tree picture. Your top is cute!! We don't really have many holiday parties to attend. We spend Christmas Eve with Chris's family and Christmas morning with his sister, then we head to my moms for Christmas dinner. Usually we see my dad the weekend before Christmas for a lunch or dinner. The week after Christmas we are usually in Gatlinburg.

  2. yay! happy birthday week! remember to TREAT YO'SELF because that's super important for anybody's birthday :)

  3. you guys are too cute!! It's nice when you can actually kick back and enjoy yourself at a party! Sometimes trying to be hostess with the mostest just makes me sweaty and drunk....ha!

  4. what a great idea to take a photo as an exit ticket, love it.
    happy birthday week!

  5. Wow! You had celebrated 30th Birthday. You really did amazing arrangements for the day. Well dear I am also planning for a holiday party with my crazy family, and I am sure I can host the party pretty well. Any ideas for me?


I'm excited you're here. Leave me a message so that we can be excited together!
