friday double dose


November 30, 2012

We leave for Los Angeles tomorrow morning, and I am petrified beyond words… for someone as OCD as me about travel, this packing has been amusing to say the least. I have already told myself we will inevitably forget something so I’ll just go get it once we are in CA. Not to mention Caroline refuses to be helf by anyone other than me currently so this should make for a relaxing getaway 😉
I can’t lie, though, I am ecstatic for her to meet her great-grandmother Esther…Jeff and her have always been extremely close and we’ve been excited for their meet-and-greet ever since she was born.

Tonight, we are going to the Red Tie Gala for the Nashville Bloodwater Mission. I’m excited because it’s a night with ONLY adults and we get to dress up in festive cocktail attire. (not to mention little miss is having a sleepover at Mimi and Pappy’s so we can have a full night sleep, too!) I picked up this fun dress at Dillard’s and hope I don’t blind anyone with the major bling going on.

One of my favorite mommy bloggers, Sara from Running From the Law, featured a few of us in her series “New Mommy Confessions”…get ready to read all about our interesting adventures. I was totally honest and wrote all about my not-so-proudest mama moment. You can read my post here.

Has anyone slipped off the workout bandwagon as of late? I have had ZERO energy to get my butt in gear…and as if this isn’t the worst time to be slacking…especially when I have been dipping into the festive Winter Oreos. I’m hoping I will find my mojo soon!
Tomorrow marks the debut of the exciting Neiman Marcus/Target collaboration for the holidays! I am so anxious to see all these fun and festive goodies the designers have come up with…Target usually does a great job with their partnerships and I have a feeling some of these specialities might end up at our house!
Happy weekend friends! I’ll see ya soon…
