Christmas is coming.


Sorry I've been so MIA recently.  Just finished exams today and hoping I am truly done (still a chance of remediation next week if I didn't do well).  I am exhausted.  Mind and body-wise.  These past few weeks have been just a lot in general.  And I shoved so much into my brain these last week that I truly thought it was going to burst.  But, I didn't cry during finals week for the first unit.  Such an accomplishment!  haha.  And I learned a lot this unit, plus it went by SO fast this time.  I feel like it's only been a few weeks, but lo and behold, it's been way more.  And I'm now 3/5 done with the first year!!  Wowza. 


So, now it's time to get excited about Christmas!!  Yes, please!  

Here are some pics of Christmas tree shopping the day after Thanksgiving and Eloise loving the Christmas tree.  It's the sweetest.  The poor baby is not feeling too hot right now and screamed a lot tonight, but tomorrow we go Christmas shopping.  If she's really my daughter, it will probably lift her spirits a bit.  :)  

P.S.  Very soon I will be posting a fun giveaway from one of my absolute favorite places.  Get ready.  Starts with Land and ends with Nod.  :)

HAIR.

You guys.  These are by far these worst videos ever made.  Yet I made them.  That's your first piece of information.  Second - why?  Why on earth would you post these silly, low-quality videos? I've had some people ask about my hair recently, specifically the waves/curls I've been doing. And, we've all talked about getting together, but sometimes it just doesn't work out.  So, here you go.  I can't wait to get my first thumbs down on YouTube.  Also, I am completely aware that there are much more important things going on in the world right now. 🙂
The main product that makes the difference for me is my curling iron, The Beachwaver (I use the S1 most of the time, S .75 less often).  I swear I'm not trying to sell it. I just really, really like it.   I realize it is a lot of money for a curling iron, so it's an investment (the 20 % off coupons from Ulta apply to this product when they're available and you can apply for their points system - I got min…

Current clothing faves.

Regular blogging, she said, right?  Whoops.  Seriously...I'm trying.  I swear I'll get more consistent.  Anyways...  
Madewell is killing me right now.  The idea of spending more on maternity clothes that won't fit in three months is too much to stand, but I am still running out of stuff to wear, so I decided to try some things on the in the store recently (Holla - store close to home!) and holy cow, they are winning this season.  Madewell is one of those brands that I find doesn't look as cute on the website or hangers as it does in person.  Here were my favorites...Some outer layers to wear over maternity tanks and tees and then a few other tops that can expand. 

This long cardigan.  I typically don't wear long cardigans because of my height, but this one seems to work - I think it must be the weight.  

Look at this you guys.  You are wearing a sweatshirt.  But you look like you are wearing a structured jacket.  BOOM. 

This shirt is incredible. Works with a belly, bu…

This. Girl. - I love her.
Two is hard sometimes, you know that?  So fun and so taxing - all at the same time.   This little person becoming their own human being, little by little.  Our girl, she is very much her own person.  Stubborn, strong-willed.  But sweet and cuddly.  And SO much fun.   Asking Jesus for help as we aim to shape this little being - allowing her to blossom, yet to obey. In my frustration sometimes I imagine this will of hers standing up to something more substantial in the years to come (not just potty training or foods she dislikes), which gives me some relief - She'll stand strong to her faith being rocked; She'll ward off that idiot of a boy (they'll all be idiots in my opinion, I assume) who thinks he is worthy of her attention.
He has created her this way - our feisty, silly, sweet little girl.  I am so thankful.
