My sister got me a long, grey sweater (similar to this) and I’ve been living it in this winter. Things are fitting a little strange these days around a growing belly but that open cardi saves me again and again. Maybe I’ll mix it with a classic tee and some cigarette pants this week (if they fit!).
The Erickson casa is really kicking off the New Year on a strong note. We’ve spent the last two days on a project rampage. Christmas decorations are away, sheetrock is going up in the basement, nursery closet is getting a serious overhaul, we’re sorting, we’re cleaning, we’re freezing (why is it still so cold?!) and it’s a great feeling (except for the cold). Let’s hope we can ride this wave right into the week ahead. It’s going to be a busy one. Enjoy these links while I sand the closet walls!
It’s 2018 but our house still looks like Christmas 2017 and likely will for some time, especially if these temperatures keep up. I’m hunkered down as I write this wearing a sweater, vest, sweatpants, and a hat. This dog has the right idea, I’m adding a blanket as well. Stay warm out there, folks!
Bags are packed, presents are wrapped, desserts are assembled, appetizers are ready, halls are decked… let’s do this, Christmas! I’m signing off until 2018 but have a wonderful and safe holiday, friends!
Are you ready for all the festivities to come in the days ahead? The to-do list is feeling a little overwhelming but the Red Head and I are taking some time tonight to bell ring for the Salvation Army! The forecast is calling for snow so I think hot chocolate will be a necessity. Make mine a double!
At an end of the season clearance sale last year, I got a deep green cape with a fur collar for $12 (perks of working at a mall). It’s similar to this but one zillionth of the cost. Since then it has sat in my closet because it was summer and because I kinda felt like an a-hole every time I tried to wear it. BUT, the other day, I just embraced my inner-Jon Snow and donned that cape, fur collar and all. I ended up looking way more Sansa Stark but I LOVED it. Now I’m hoping the weather stays decent so I can wear it just a bit longer. A cape-wearing monster has been created.
How have you been this weekend, pals? We’ve been bundled up and busy around these parts. Friday was a Christmas kick-off with family (you know we’re getting old when we went to dinner and a show and were still in bed before 10), yesterday was errands, baking and dinner with pals and today is more of the same. No complaints around theses parts! I’m just making my list and checking it twice before the holidays officially arrive. We’ve got less than four days until our next batch of fun starts (gift exchanges, bell ringing, travel and more!).
