I bet you won’t believe this but it is actually cold enough in San Diego to wear big coats, scarves, and boots! Actually it has been raining all week here and today was the first day it was dry. It’s been really nice to have a change of weather though. Because of the draught, we will take all the rain we can get.

We enjoyed our Saturday by doing a little exploring and found this cute spot that is literally a two-minute walk from our house. We will definitely be coming back here often. Reagan had a blast picking up all the different leaves she found. We really just enjoyed being outside in the nice chilly weather!

My OOTD (for my grandparents and parents this means outfit of the day) was perfect for the weather. I seriously love this blanket scarf from Banana Republic. It is so warm and cozy and the perfect color! Scarves add a lot to your look and they really do keep you so much warmer. I also had to show off my new MVMT watch that was given to me for my Birthday! These watches are suuuuper cute, inexpensive (especially for the quality), and the best part is all the leather straps are interchangeable with any color they have available. They also have mens watches so you can look around for the special man in your life too.

I hope you all had a great Saturday like we did! If you have any questions about other outfit details comment below or privately.

Thanks for all of you who have contacted me with positive feedback and kind words about my blog, it means so much to me!

XOXO

One of the fun things about being married is looking at the different traditions in our families and deciding what things we will incorporate into our own family.  One tradition we always look forward to is making christmas treats!  Typically we make sugar cookies, carmels, fondants and turtles.  The tradition of making the candy actually comes down through Bry’s family and we definitly have chosen to continue with it.  Although making the candy is a little time consuming, it’s a good way to spend quality time together.  This year Bry’s parents were in town one weekend and we were all able to work together which was fun!

We really enjoy making these treats, but most of all, we enjoy sharing them with friends and neighbors.  Not to toot our own horn, but these chocolates are pretty amazing, and its fun to give them away and see how much other people like them.  The turtles are by far my favorite!(that’s what I was making in the pictures)

Another thing I like about this time of year is the cute Christmas sweaters.  I got this one from J.Crew and I absolutely love it! (I actually picked this one because Bryant loves to ski and he misses it!!) Believe it or not, it actually gets cold enough in San Diego to want to wear sweaters, and even have hot chocolate! This really is such a special time of year. I love getting to see the house all decorated and the atmosphere of giving is so much fun! But what I love most is spending quality time with my family and friends, and that makes this season truly special!

Making Christmas cookies and candy are a few of the holiday traditions that we enjoy, what fun things do you do during this time of year?

Another year has come and gone! I honestly don’t know how I just turned 26, when did I get so old!! When I was little, after each birthday I would tell my mom “only 365 days until my next birthday” and I would count down. Okay, I will admit I never fully counted down from 365, but I would definitely count down from 100 haha. When I got married I tried to convince Bry that the entire month was my birthday month; in fact, I’m still trying for that one. For now, he has settled with me having a birthday week haha! That doesn’t mean I get gifts all week,  it means I try and say things like “It’s my birthday week, can I have an extra long foot massage” or “It’s my birthday week, you’re on dishes tonight” or my favorite, “It’s my birthday week, Reagan needs her diaper changed!” Needless to say, it was a great week!

One thing that has become a tradition in our family is the birthday boy or girl wakes up to a fully decorated house. Even though Bry and I both expect the decorations, we still manage to sneak out and decorate without the other person knowing. Reagan and Bryant decorated for me this year and I think Reagan was more excited for my birthday than anyone else, it was so cute. Throughout the whole day she would randomly say ” Happy Birthday Mom, I love you!” Having a kid when it’s your birthday makes you feel like it isn’t your birthday, due to the amount of slave work you still have to do for them; but at the same time, they completely melt your heart with all the sweetness and love.  

The best part of the decorations this year were the awesome balloons in the pictures above.  I knew that I would have fun taking pictures with them and they actually turned out pretty cool! I also mentioned to my dad that I am saving them for his 62nd birthday in a few years, so I had to send a picture with the numbers switched.  I don’t think the reminder of his soon to be age was appreciated. Sorry Dad, I LOVE YOU! 

I also took the time to show one of my favorite pieces in my closet, which is my leather jacket! You can literally wear it with just about anything and it adds the perfect edge to your outfit. It’s definitely a piece of clothing you want to have in your closet. There are so many different styles of leather jackets, so if you are in the market for one, try on a bunch of different styles to find the one that fits your style and looks like good quality. I am all for finding good deals but there are some things you can’t buy cheap, and this is one of them. A little extra money goes a long way when you are talking about leather jackets.  I promise you will get your money’s worth. As you can see in this one post I got to wear it twice this weekend with totally different looks.

Friday night we celebrated as a little family and went to dinner at one of my favorite Italian restaurant’s in San Diego, called Arrivederci. If you are ever in the area and looking for good Italian food, definitely give this place a try. On Saturday, my mom, sister, her friend, and my niece came down to celebrate and to help my mom watch Reagan while Bry and I went out with our friends. Poor Bry, it was all girls and him haha.  We hardly ever get a babysitter, so it was fun to have some adult time and enjoy a night out. 

Our first stop was to Basic Urban Kitchen which is downtown, just a few blocks from the Gaslamp Quarter. My long time friend is the manager there and we have been wanting to try it out for a while. The whole experience was awesome! The atmosphere, layout, and the food was incredible! It was such a cool place, we are definitely going back. After dinner we went over to a country club called Moonshine Flats. I love country music so this was definitely my type of place. They had line dancing, a live band, a bunch backyard/tailgating games, and most importantly some of country music’s hotties on the bathroom stall doors! Naturally we had to get a pic with Tim McGraw! We danced all night and sang along with all of our favorite songs!

This really was such a fun way to celebrate my birthday and I am grateful for all my friends who came! I am excited to see what things are in store in this next year of my life! 

Love you all!

XOXO
