Hi friends, it's been a little while. I've been meaning to chat over the last few days, but you know how crazy busy it gets over the Holidays....
We had a festive weekend of Christmas parties, Christmas with grandparents, trying out a new restaurant called The Granary that may be one of my new all-time Charleston faves, and the entire family getting over pink eye.
I've fallen madly in love with one of my stocking stuffers (that I just had to open and couldn't wait for Christmas to open).
I can't believe I'm saying this, but I love The Wet Brush more than the Mason Pearson brush I purchased a while back. Now all the girls in the family will own one. If you have little girls with long hair, this brush is a necessity!!! It never hurts or pulls hair, wet or dry. It saves a ton of tears and patience.

We've been enjoying our famous, annual Rosemary Shortbread Cookies. They are truly amazing. Though I share just about everything on the blog, this recipe is a family secret. Sorry friends.
We're having lobster tails, mac and cheese, and roasted vegetables tonight for Christmas Eve dinner. We also have a little caviar to help get the party started. We're pairing everything with Brangelina's famous Miraval Rose wine that Mr. BMJ surprised me with from Southern Season. (On a side note: If you live in Charleston, you have to go to that store. It's mind blowing!!!)
We're planning a quiet, low key day tomorrow with Baby Girl and then we're off for a quick mini vaca in Atlanta. I can't wait to report all the details.
We'll talk soon! Until then, have a Very Merry Everything, be safe, be happy, and thanks for reading friends!
p.s. Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice? Because my sweet mom wrapped about 80% of all the presents going under the tree! Yay! I just have a few more to wrap tonight and then we can get a few more "House of Cards" episodes under our belts. Yes, we're crazily addicted to a TV series once again. Is anyone else in the same predicament?
