1. Having a day off in the middle of the week is a hands down favorite. Sleeping in on Wednesday morning was absolutely heavenly! I invited Eric's oldest sister to hang out with us for the day, and the girls loved having their Aunt Hannah with us. We ate lunch at Panera, dropped a bunch of stuff off at consignment, then used our earnings to do some Christmas shopping!
2. While out shopping, Hannah took me in American Eagle, a store that I loved as a teen, but haven't been in much since. I found this adorable cable knit sweater that I just had to have! It's thick, not scratchy, and long enough to wear with leggings. Basically everything I've been looking for, plus it was 40% off, making it less than $35.
Bonus, it reminds me of the one that Jillian Harris (huge Jillian Harris fan here!) has been wearing non-stop.

4. Speaking of Christmas, Ella's new favorite saying is "I'll talk to Santa about that." I swear, she has a four page list for the man. Normally she is scared to death of Santa...
but she is determined that she is going to sit on his lap & tell him her list this year. Fingers crossed she follows through & mama finally gets an awesome Santa picture.
5. I may have a new favorite show. I couldn't get Dancing with the Stars to stream the other night, so I started watching Quantico instead. Umm... the show is pretty awesome. It centers on FBI trainees & a terrorist that has infiltrated their ranks, but there is so much else going on too! I'm not far enough in to explain any of it yet, but I'm hooked & can't wait to find out what happens next.
Have a Great Weekend!
