Hey Guys. Sorry I haven’t posted much this week! I have been super busy with everything Christmas related! This is my FAVORITE time of year and I always get wrapped up in it all. I swear I wrapped 30 gifts tonight. My hands hurt! This Christmas will be VERY different from the last. Here is why:

- My older sister and her husband became foster parents in March. They had a two year old who we all loved tremendously. His grandparents were granted custody, but they still get to see him all of the time. After they lost him, they were immediately given a two month old baby girl. It was a struggle for them going from no children, to a two year old, and then to a two month old! They finally got her on a schedule and BOOM! They now have two MORE foster children, two girls ages 9 mo and 2 years. I think they were just so worried about the kids not having a home for Christmas.
- My boyfriend will NOT be with me for Christmas this year. Definitely tough on us, but he never gets to spend time with his family, so he will be in Omaha for Christmas.
- That leaves 12 people total in our house for Christmas, which means I will be crashing in someone’s room on an air mattress. I am not worried about it, at least my entire family will be able to come together for Christmas and we will have a couple of young ones there to enjoy it with!
In other news, I am now booked for New York AND London Fashion Week this coming February! Pretty crazy because I have never even been to London before! With that, and my hopes of blogging full-time or potentially finding another job, I am going to be pretty strapped these next few months! If I do go full-time, don’t worry, I will have a play by play for you for sure!
Enough about me, how amazing is this Magnolia Shift Dress? I saw this dress hanging in Urban Outfitters while I was in the check out line. I didn’t want to lose my spot so I ended up checking out and leaving without it. I continued shopping around the mall but I could NOT stop thinking about the dress! I ended up cracking, tried it on, and immediately bought it! Shift dress go perfectly with my new Stuart Weitzman boots, so that was a no brainer, and I picked up this gorgeous back back while browsing in Nordstrom! Get the details below and have an amazing day!
