Dear 5pm: Please come faster!!! Dear Weekend: I have tons of fun plans for you this weekend and would love it if there was no snow to ruin these fun plans. Dear NYC: I am warning you, the four of us are going to be having a ton of fun even though we are probably going to be freezing. Dear Alex and Ani: Why are you so amazing?! And why are you a little more expensive than I would like? I have at least 20 of you on my wishlist that I would love on my wristlist. Dear New Years Eve: I'm hoping this year to finally do something most Americans do... drink heavily with a group of friends. Dear GroopDealz: I have these 3 things sitting in my cart and I don't know if I should get them... take a look:
left: short infinity scarf in the medium brown.
middle: tear drop necklace in that mint color
right: little bubble necklace in white/gold
Let me know what you all think on these awesome pieces!
Dear Christmas Decor: I am going to keep you up as long as the hubs lets me. I love the sparkling lights and wintery feel. Dear Wine: We've gotten very close this week... thanks! Dear Followers: if I did a Vlog, what would you want it to be about? And don't forget to take tons of pictures this weekend for me and Karla's Monday linkup!
Have a wonderful Friday everybody!
See you Monday to catch you up on our weekend fun
if snow doesn't ruin everything!
Ta ta for now <3

Am I the only one who feels like
Christmas came up really quickly,
and flew by?
It really felt like it came up suddenly,
and then it never happened!
Dan and I thought we had another 2-3 weeks
hence why we started and finished shopping on Saturday.
We actually still have some more to do
for people we have not seen yet.
They don't know that ;)
I am about to SUPER overload you with pictures.
I'm more about the giving and showing,
than showing what I myself received.
It's much more fun!
I'd love it if you could stick with me and my glass o' Riesling,
there's definitely a lot of joy to share.
one: Dan and I made Santa hats out of brownies, vanilla frosting, and strawberries. Best combination of flavor EVER.

got this wonderful idea from pinterest.
the one on pinterest was also of a normal size that somebody could actually put on their wall for decoration.
And because it is Thursday,
I promise it'll be short.
...That I just bombarded everybody with pictures
...that most won't look at said pictures and/or their captions
...to want to make another vlog
...to wish that Christmas didn't go by so quickly
...that our plans for New Years aren't existent
...that I can't wait for February
...that I only have 2 more days until I'm off for a whole week!!!!
...that I'm addicted to Alex and Ani bracelets. I got my first one from my sister for Christmas and now I have like 20 on my wishlist
...for Karla and I to hope that we have a ton of people linking up with us for Instagramazing Monday!!
And that is all for now.
If you made it this far,
thanks for stickin with me.
If you didn't,
then you have no idea what I'm saying so I could be saying nothing or
something really important that you should know about :)

I feel like I’m the only one who didn’t post or
mention anything about the stupid apocalypse, so here it is.
Ok I’m done with that.
This little posty post will be quick, short, and super sweet!
First things first:
If you didn’t get a chance to check out my first Vlog,
Go do that now!
I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Dan and I got to go out with one of our favorite couples last night,
Karla and Scott,
For a much needed drink and dinner date.
Speaking of Karla,
We will be back to hosting the Instagramazing Weekend Linkup Monday!
And most of you have awesome holiday events, parties, and/or celebrations all throughout this weekend.
Make sure to take lots of pictures and link up with us on Monday.
And don’t forget to tell all your bloggy friends about it,
We’d love to see what you all did!
Dan and I were suppose to start and finish our Christmas shopping yesterday.
That did not happen,
Even a little bit!
Instead, the thought of hangin out with Karla and Scott was much more appealing.
I will be shopping tomorrow super early to not get run over by the
Christmas Grinches out there.
I’m very excited for the holiday J
Ok that is all for now my lovelies.
Ta ta <3

I didn't read it out loud,
but I gasped and started crying my eyes out.
I couldn't believe my grandma got me a videographer!
I was so excited and so was Dan.
And boy are we ever glad for this gift.
I've watched our wedding DVD about 100 times!
I took some clips from my phone to share with friends,
so here are some fun moments from our wedding:
My mom, sister, and I
Our DVD cover
In the bridal suite gettin ready!!
Dan and his mom before the ceremony.
