The countdown to Christmas is on! We had a mixed bag this weekend - Friday night G and I hit River Oaks for date night, and got to go on a carriage ride before trying a new restaurant (if you're in Houston and haven't hit Le Colonial, I can highly recommend it! We loved the Shaking Beef). Saturday was full of hanging out at home, matching Christmas PJ's, and looking at some lights. Sunday we got up early and hit the zoo! Evie loved the Cougar, but was surprisingly unimpressed by the new baby elephant (who I couldn't get enough of!). Unfortunately, by early afternoon, Evie had a high fever and we ended the day in the ER. Fortunately, it's just a virus, but it's her first serious sickness, which is why I've been MIA the past 48 hrs! Whew!
I waited too long to share this sweater here, so it's gone online (though I hunted a few down in Banana Republic stores this week!), but my shoes are (1) Fully stocked (2) Come in three colors and are (3) marked down by 40%, making them less than $80!!!
I think Pompoms are just so fun and festive for this time of year, and when I learned that I could get these heels from Sam Edelman and get matching flats for Evie, I ordered them immediately! I have to admit, they're everything I'd hoped for. They're designed to distribute the weight evenly between your heel and the ball of your foot, and it makes them so comfortable and easy to move around in.
Biggest bonus: Nordstrom card holders can order as late as 12/22 12PM EST and still get their shoes by 12/23 in the evening, so you can grab yourself a pair for your parties, and a pair (or two!) to tuck under the tree for your besties.
Have fun, and Merry Christmas week!
