I Am Thankful For...

I am thankful for....

My Family!

My family is driving from Arkansas to come spend Thanksgiving break with me here in New Mexico!!!  I am so excited, I have not seen them since July.  We have a whole week of fun planned; visit to Santa Fe, Bandelier National Monument, and then driving up to Colorado to spend a few days with my aunt and uncle. This should be a fun and eventful week :)

That being said, if it takes me a while to respond, it is because I am busy enjoying the company of my family!!

Jacket- Old Navy (similar)
Top- Old Navy (HERE)
Pants- American Eagle (similar)
Boots- Steve Madden (similar)

The Mr. had a meeting in Santa Fe and brought me home a caramel brulee latte from Starbucks!
 Starbucks Holiday drinks are buy 1 get 1 FREE through Sunday! Go getcha' some :)





Yesterday was my little brother's birthday, so I made him a cake for when he gets here!!
He is a pianist....
I am by no means a baker, which is why it's not even close to perfect. Plus, I live at 7,300ft elevation so that kind of screws with baking and cooking a bit. (If only he liked chocolate icing, it would have looked more like a piano!)

Have a great weekend!

  10. you should totally get the black and white sweater!!! i want it too! haha so bad.
    but the black and white ones actually ran out about a month ago and they just restocked. and if you read the reviews they say that the quality isn't as good anymore :(

    1. Awww, bummer! :(. I read the reviews, makes me sad! Thanks for pointing that out, I may wait to ask for it or maybe go for one of the other colors.
