'Tis the Season

'Tis the season for busy schedules and fewer blog posts.  Let's catch up!

The jam packed Christmas party weekend was a success.  We ate, drank, and were merry!  

The couture dress was a hit.  (I just discovered that it's newly available for purchase on-line.  That bums me out a little bit.)  Thank goodness I found the perfect shoes to go with it.  They are gorgeous and so comfortable.  I cut a mean rug in them.  My new hairdresser extraordinaire, Donnie Ray did my hair and make-up.  I could get very used to that rock star treatment.  The man transformed me!

Dress:  Carmen Marc Valvo, similar herehere and here

I was a bad blogger and forgot to take pictures on Friday night.  Oops.  We went to our Country Club Christmas Party and I made some fun new friends!

We have an ugly Christmas sweater party coming up this weekend that I will be sure to document!  I'm borrowing one out of my mom's collection and ordered one off of Etsy for Mr. BMJ.  I'm bringing the dessert.  Any suggestions?  This looks pretty tasty and is one of my favorites.

I'm totally pooped because I stayed up all night finishing "The Husband's Secret."  It's a must read!  I can't stop thinking about it today.

Baby Girl is currently playing in her bed and refusing to sleep even though she was so exhausted she cried the entire way home from school.  I'm not ready for her naps to go away.  NOOOOOO!!!!!!

Needless to say, with all of the eating and drinking this weekend, and this morning's treats from my study session,

I gained back all the weight I lost last week.  Oh well...'tis the season, right?

Check out the "Shop" Tab at the top of the page!  There are goodies for women, kids, and home.  I'm adding new favorites daily and you may just need to buy yourselves a few things to go under the tree!

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because I'm getting so excited for my girls' trip to Asheville coming up next week!  We're going to eat, drink, shop, and relax at the amazing Grove Park Spa.
