WEEKEND UPDATE: INSTA STYLE




Wearing my favorite red Hunters on a rainy day (rained all weekend almost!) // Success with finding a new big mirror to replace our old one that broke // Date night out to get sushi & hibachi! // coming home to cute lace boot socks that I completed forgot I ordered (from GroopDealz)


arm candy: new pave link bracelet (from Style Love Living - only $25) // party appetizers: brie and raspberries, the best combination! // getting ready for a Christmas party and rocking an adult onesie // my girlfriends Angela and Emily before heading to a Christmas party! 

those orange drinks we're holding? whipped cream vodka and orange fago...creamsicle heaven! 


Angela's boyfriend Steve dressed up as Eddie ;) // Sunday snuggles with Rocky // his & hers late night drinks by the tree <3

This weekend was the perfect combination of relaxation and fun. 
Billy picked hibachi for our date night on Friday, Saturday we ran errands and got most Christmas shopping done, and Saturday night we attended a fun Christmas party with friends! The only time I left my house yesterday was to go get dessert (peanut butter silk pie!) with Billy. Other than that, it was spent relaxing and catching up on sleep I didn't get the night prior. :)

On top of all that....
Receiving this picture from Maggie's mom, Megan, definitely made my weekend a heck of a lot better:


Maggie made us a thank you sign!
and then....
I got goosebumps & my heart melted. 

Maggie is back in the hospital right now for her new rounds of chemotherapy.
Seeing this picture and her big smile was just the icing on the cake for me! To all of you who donated, this picture is for you as well and I hope it puts a smile on your face, like it did for me. Once I get some cards I'm waiting for in the mail, I plan on setting up a time with Megan to deliver the check to her!

How was your weekend, ladies?
