double dose wishlist! red + yellow.

Since Christmas is less than 48 hours away I thought I’d give you a double dose of color and wishlists today. Yellow and Red have to be two of my fav colors, and these little gift yummies are nothing short of awesome. Any of these gifts would be a happy compliment to our rather bare bottomed tree.

Good luck with those last minute shopping trips and Merry Merry Christmas! We woke up bright and early this morning to hit the road for our trip to CO. I hear there is snow waiting for us! YES! Pics surely to come soon!

Happy Friday friends!

the BLACK list.

Are you ready yet?! Or are you like me and Adam and have kinda only barely started?

Usually I’m super on top of it, but this year I’m a little slow to get the list complete. I’m heading out today for all the trimmings….paper, tags, ribbon etc. etc. I’m kinda OBSESSED with getting the perfect wrapping paper with the perfect matching (or not matching) ribbon. I absolutely LOVE wrapping gifts! There is just so much potential to make the gift super special from the moment they lay eyes on the box.

Only a few days to go…will we get it all done??! Oh and those Chloe ballet flats? Please Santa, please!

the BLUE list.

Did you know there are only about 2 weeks left until Christmas?! Uh-huh. Those shopping days are trickling away faster than you can fa la la la la!

I’m heading out this weekend to find the perfect secret santa gift and some stocking stuffers for Mr. Blake & Bailie Bug. I’m definitely gonna keep this week’s BLUE wishlist in mind.

Adam and I actually exchanged our “gift” this week! I’m not even gonna lie. Our brand spanking new 50 inch flat screen television is pretty freaking amazing in our living room right now. And I think most of my excitement stems from the fact that the ‘old school’ t.v. jokes will finally subside from our friends & fam.

Happy weekend friends!

the GREEN list.

With the holidays right around the corner and my intention to shift this blog to a more male/female perspective blog sloooowwwlly gaining momentum, I figured there wasn’t a better time OR way to ring in the holiday cheer than with some him & her gift wishlists!

I’ve been all about bold pops of color lately and thought “why not” share some rad gift ideas for that guy or gal in your life?! For the next 7 weeks I’ll be sharing one color list a week…1st up? GREEN!!!

Check back next Friday for the next color wishlist.

Until then….happy shopping friends!
