Grab your coffee and dive into the Sunday Skim and use this as an excuse to relax for a few minutes before the craziness of the holidays set in…
It’s officially December. Since we have had kids it feels like the years are just clicking by but this one seemed to pass particularly fast. Today is Porter’s second birthday party and we will be celebrating with his favorite things… starbucks. Pictures to come next week.
Fashion… So my super cute friend Sarah posted a picture on Instagram yesterday of her in this adorable knit hat. It got me thinking about how much a good hat can change an outfit. Winter gives us the opportunity to wear all of the accessories so why not throw a hat in the mix. If I was to pick three hats to wear this winter these would be it… Beanie // Floppy // Beret
Family… We celebrated Porter’s birthday Friday night by visiting the Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans and also Celelbration in the Oaks. Such a fun time and the kids love looking at the lights. We are planning to take them tonight through the subdivision to see all of the lights that our neighbors have put up.
Food and Drink… I love soup but it is really hard to find ones that don’t have pasta in them. I found this one the other day and tried it. Very flavorful and it doesn’t have a ton of cream and other fat in it. It would be excellent with some chicken added to it. Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup
Health… Love Eggnog but not wanting to get off track on your diet for the holidays? This is a great recipe for an eggnog protein shake that has little sugar and all the flavor…
Eggnog Protein Shake:
8 oz almond milk
Protein of choice (vanilla)
1/2 tsp rum extract
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Blend until desired consistency.
News… I think by now everyone has heard that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged. SO much speculation on when and where the wedding will take place. A new royal baby and a new royal wife. I have a love affair with all things English so I am ready to know all of the details. Most importantly… What will she wear. I mean does anything else really matter? Here is a quick look back on what some of the other royal brides have chosen…
