Merry Christmas!

Wow, just like that Christmas is over. Presents are all unwrapped, we’re back in the comfort of our own home, and all of the hecticness has passed!

I spent this Christmas with my husband’s family and had a lovely time. This was our first Christmas married and our second Christmas together. We got engaged on Christmas Eve last year, so it was fun to reminisce on the excitement of last year and this year. I also got to celebrate with my own family via Skype as they’re all about 1600 miles away in Virginia.

How did you spend your day? Hopefully it was a joyful one filled with happiness, family and love. And food. Lots of food.

I wanted to share our Christmas looks with you all and wish you the most wonderful holiday. I am so beyond thankful to have you here, and though you may not realize it, you being here reading this makes a huge impact on my life and lets me keep doing what I love doing — blogging! Thank you so, so much.

If you follow me on Instagram (which you should if you don’t 😉 ), you’ll know I’ve been talking about this adorable reindeer sweater this week and I was so excited to wear it! I thought it was so cute. It’s currently 50% off making it $27!

Now, here are the various looks from today!

Jake: pullover // jeans // shoes
Jake: top // bottoms
Me: top // bottoms
tree // pom blanket // lanterns // stockings // stocking holders // Thompson sign

Not gonna lie, I love the matching PJs thing for the holidays. But I also knew Jake wouldn’t be too happy in the super over the top ones, so I went more simple with the buffalo plaid.

The boys were so exhausted from all the excitement of staying at Jake’s mom’s house and there were so many people and other dogs there we could hardly get them in the house before they fell asleep! I had to move them around to get a good picture hahaha.

Remember the reason for Christmas isn’t about the gifts and what you did or didn’t get. It’s a celebration of the Lord’s birthday. “The spirit of Christmas is not in presents, but in His Presence”

  • 🥰Our first Valentine’s Day being married was so special! Nothing like getting a beautiful arrangement of roses, right ladies?! Jake had them use pink and lavender roses and lavender sprigs between them to fill it out instead of baby’s breath. It smells so good!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day ❤️
  • Happy Valentine’s Day!! I’m working on a little DIY a project today 😍 can’t wait to be done and see the finished result. And to celebrate ❤️ day with hubby later! I hope everyone has a wonderful day filled with love. P.S. — 2 years ago I was single on Valentine’s Day and I made myself a whole cake 🎂 so don’t be afraid to treat yo’self 😎 just sayin! #liketkit

  • Comfy casual for errands is my style 👌🏻 also I love this hat because on the days I don’t feel like doing anything with my hair, hats are a lifesaver. And dry shampoo 😂. I put a poll up on my stories yesterday asking if you guys want to see a series of posts on #cozyminimalism and the answer was an overwhelming yes! I’ve already started working on them and will start posting next week so stay tuned!! In the mean time, check out my post on 12 ways you’re wasting money on clothes and how to stop. We’re all guilty of it 🤷🏻‍♀️. Click the link in my profile to read! #liketkit
  • Fun fact day about my wonderful husband: Jake has this uncanny ability to make me smile and laugh even when I’m sick. I was in bed all weekend but somehow he managed to still make me feel better. 
He is the king of puns and loves to make corny jokes. I’m talking real bad dad jokes. But I think they’re hilarious, and his enthusiasm and the fact that HE finds them so funny is the best part.

It’s the little things like this that showed me he was my perfect person. That and he told me he was going to marry me after 3 weeks of dating 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ which also made my laugh at the time but 9 months later he was down on one knee! 
That was also the same day I tried to break up with him because I had just gotten out of a bad relationship and I was starting to like him way too much too soon. I told him I wasn’t ready for another relationship and he literally said “are you trying to break up with me? We’re gonna get married.” I busted out laughing but he was so serious.
Even then, I could tell he really believed that. Now 4 months into our marriage he still shows me every day he wants to be married to me ❤️👰🏻🤵🏻 We have to appreciate the little things like the bad jokes because the effort behind them is how people say “I love you” in other ways. Happy Monday 💕#marriedlife💍 #marriagegoals
