Hate to be that person, but I am just SO excited for Christmas. We bought our stockings and Christmas tree skirt at Kirkland's last night and now I am ready to just take down all the fall stuff and put up all of our Christmas decorations. I'll wait though, for just EIGHT more days.The Saturday after Thanksgiving is when we are going to decorate. More on that next week, but it's going to be one of the best days!! 

2 | My dream desk

Also last night we made a stop in Home Goods. We are looking for ornaments for our Christmas tree. Although I was disappointed with their Christmas selection, I about died when I spotted this desk. White and gold....perfect. If you know me then you know how much I love anything gold. All my desk accessories at work are gold, one of our wedding colors was gold, and I'm adding a few gold decor pieces here and there to our apartment. I told Matthew I needed this desk for Christmas and I didn't need anything else but this desk. I was all heart eye emoji in the middle of Home Goods drooling over this desk, and my sweet husband was willing to get it for me, but 1. We have ZERO room for this in our apartment. 2. I don't know if we'll have room for this in our future house (thinking ahead!!) 3. It was $200, and I just can't even think about spending $200 on myself right now when all we want to do is dump any extra money we have into house savings. So as much as I loved this perfect desk we left it at Home Goods...alone. Fingers crossed our future house will have room for it and we can find another one just like this!!

3 | Washer & Dryer
Our washer and dryer delivered a week ago today and they are PERFECT. We sat there for a good 10 minutes watching it run the first load out of pure excitement. #wearechildren

4 | Calendar

I finally updated our calendar to November...just a couple of weeks late. We keep this on our refrigerator with important dates on it. I love it, look at that beautiful gold frame ;) and look forward to updating it each month!

5 | Spotify

I am probably really late about this, but I just discovered Spotify....and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT.
I spent a good bit the other day creating playlists and now I am hooked. I used to listen to Pandora all day long while I worked, but I got tired of the same songs. So this week I've been pulling up Spotify every morning and listening to it all day. It's great! What about y'all? Do y'all use Spotify throughout the day some? If so follow me, I have enjoyed finding friends on there and seeing/following some of their playlists! I also have 5 Christmas playlists already #noshame


  1. That desk really is the prettiest! HomeGoods is just a little TOO good!

  2. I love that gold and white desk! My dream for my office would be white and gold, so I feel like I need that desk! Plus, I love HG, too!

  3. I cannot wait to decorate for Christmas!! We always decorate the Sat/Sun after Thanksgiving but I started thinking we'll be really busy and it might be better to go ahead and put our tree up (no decorating) tonight, but Stephen shot that down lol That gold desk is so pretty!! Hope you find another one just like it (or better!) when it comes time to buy :)
