Happy Weekend and I know I say it every week but T.G.I.F.! Can you even believe that next week it’s Christmas? I don’t know where this week has gone let alone this year. I know they say time flies but it is going so fast I don’t know what to do! I will say that I am very much looking forward to this weekend. Tonight we are doing our annual holiday dinner with a couple of favorites. We are trying a place that I have been DYING to go to, so I will let you know about it next week! Tomorrow night will be spent celebrating a friends birthday and then Sunday we get to see friends we do not get to see that often so I am so excited.
Between all of the plans I hope we finish up our Christmas shopping…I still can’t believe that is all happening next week. YIKES. Well I hope you all have a lovely weekend. Happy Holidays! xx

- Nordstrom: Love the burgundy version of these shoes (I have the black), these boyfriend jeans are so cute, this Alice & Olivia dress is so cute, I really want these track pants, if you need a black riding boot, this Prada one is gorgeous and these Jimmy Choos would be the perfect wedding or cocktail shoe!

I have been wanting these Vince sneakers for quite some time and they are finally on sale, I love these boyfriend jeans, this Alice & Olivia puffer coat and I love these Tory Burch booties.
It’s no secret that Tory Burch is the ultimate hostess and probably guest (I am assuming). From the photos alone you can tell that this girl has set a table (or hundreds) in her life. One thing that I hope to get better at is being the hostess with the mostest. This past Thanksgiving I put my hosting skills to the test and hosted Thanksgiving. I will say that I was a bit stressed about setting the perfect table but thanks to my grandmother who has more dishes, chargers, trinkets and vases than one could dream I would say that my table came together beautifully.
Although hosting is for sure a skill that takes a second to master (I am still learning), being a good guest is just as important. One of the keys to being a good guest is always remembering to bring the host a tiny little something to say thank you. I usually opt for fresh flowers because I for one love nothing more than flowers but I will admit I need to get better at being more prepared. One thing that I have always loved that my grandmother has is her hostess cabinet. She has a cabinet in her home (and always has) filled with candles, stationary, ribbons and other creative gifts. Maybe one day I will be that organized and prepared but for now I will just keep ordering my favorite Tory Burch hostess gifts (like this soap set) or picking up fresh flowers.
