So I've been pretty much in the Christmas spirit since Thanksgiving and it's only amplified by the excitement of sharing this time of the year for the first time with my daughter! It's truly so much more special seeing the holidays thru her eyes. Every light display gets her excited and amused and she is still doesn't care about materialistic things / gifts. (although selfishly I can't wait till she gets all excited about her gifts!!)

So you guys know that I shop at the LOFT a lot and yesterday they really shocked me in a good way! I received an email that they credited $20 to my card because of all the inconveniences (there has been items that I bought that sold out & it's been taking forever to get stuff). I was like OK, that is nice. Then a few minutes later another email from them. They are giving me a $20 virtual gift certificate for the same reason. So Christmas came early for me, I really wasn't' expecting anything but still it was very nice of them! I purchased this sweater last year from the LOFT and never got the chance to wear it. I got it one size bigger than I would normally wear so I could rock it with the baby bump, then right before it was appropriate to wear something snowflake printed I got put on bedrest! Booooo! So needless to say wearing this snowflake sweater has been long time coming. Since we had two small snowfall events already this season, I decided to wear it today. It's a wool blend and I get super itchy from wool, I decided to layer a navy gingham shirt underneath!
