It’s Friday!!! And it’s two days after Christmas, so I am feeling the Christmas Blues start to sneak in. I love the holidays but whenever Christmas is over, I cannot help but feel a little sad. To combat this, I figured I would focus on things that are making me smile in another Things I’m Loving Friday post!
Things I’m Loving Friday
Whenever I visit my parents in Jacksonville, I love taking Jazzercise classes with my mom and sister. The three of us have the best time jumping around, dancing and working up a sweat together. Unfortunately my mom’s surgery prohibited her from joining me and my sister at Jazzercise this week, but we still managed to take a few classes and hopped around in her honor.
“What does the way you speak say about where you’re from? Answer all the questions to see your personal dialect map!” I took this quiz and my results were spot on! It said I speak like I am from Aurora, Illinois which makes a lot of sense since I grew up in nearby Palatine, Illinois.
- Sleepy Sadie
Since Sadie is normally running around like crazy, Ryan and I have learned to cherish “Sleepy Sadie.” Watching Sadie try her hardest to keep her eyes open is one of the cutest things in the world and we love her sleepy cuddles.
It seems like oversize sweaters are everywhere this year and I am loving it! They’re ridiculously comfortable and they make any outfit look extra cozy. Some sweaters that caught my eye: chunky cable knit sweater (only $17!), winter white cable knit sweater, off-the-shoulder stripe sweater, gone boho sweater (love the fun print!)
- Christmas Traditions
We are big-time suckers for Christmas traditions in our house and I look forward to our traditions every single year. From pajamas on Christmas Eve, my mom’s family Christmas poem, monkey bread and cheese puff casserole for breakfast on Christmas morning and my dad playing Christmas music while we open presents, I love everything about Christmas with my family. I’m also loving the new tradition of enjoying some quiet time and opening presents with Ryan before everyone wakes up.
- Red Velvet Hot Chocolate
After I unwrapped this delicious little treat from my sister on Christmas morning, I made myself a mug of the red velvet hot chocolate to enjoy on Christmas when we all curled up on the couch to watch Elf. Yum.
