Happy Friday everyone!  
(Even though it doesn’t really feel like Friday to me…)
After a wonderful week in Michigan, we fly out this evening to head back to Oregon. Although I’m looking forward to being reunited with Lola (who is currently staying with Cam’s parents) and celebrating Christmas with his family this weekend, it’s always really sad to leave Michigan and my family. It’s tough because every time I’m home there are always so many people I’d love to spend time with, so many things I’d like to do, so many restaurants I want to eat at (sad but true…ha!) and it seems like there is never enough time to fit it all in. But we do the best we can with the time we have and try to enjoy each moment, and this trip was no exception. Next week, I’ll be sharing more about our visit along with some photos from our actual camera but for now here are a few of my favorite Instagram snaps from the past week…
Christmas cheer at my parents’ house
Couch, roaring fire, and a Christmas tree at my parents’…so relaxing!
Coffee and crepes
Catching up with old friends
Some of our best friends from college just had a baby last month, it was so fun to meet him!
Beautiful cake from the local bakery
My sweet Grandma gets us a Barbie ornament each Christmas…even though I’m 26, I still love it
Love seeing my cousins!
My littlest cousin Evan at my grandparents–he filled me in on all the cool apps I’ve never heard of…ha!
Cute little Christmas tree at my grandparents’ house
We had a cookie baking day with my cousins, which was a lot of fun. Frosted sugar cookies are my fav!
I’m still very close with a lot of my friends from high school, so Christmas Eve we got together for a fancy brunch…the place we ate had beautiful decorations!
So great to catch up with my besties 🙂
Essie’s Leading Lady, an early Christmas gift from my mom…also, I need to get better at painting my nails
Shopping at Somerset Collection
Thanks to everyone who commented on this photo of these two coats…almost everyone seemed to be in favor of the red one (I was too!) I ended up deciding not to get either one…mainly because I don’t really need them/wasn’t really in love with either one. Whomp whomp.
Beautiful snow falling on Christmas Eve after church
My classic Christmas Eve movie, this end makes me choke up every year
Christmas morning–got a new Kindle from my hubby! 🙂
White Christmas
One of Cam’s presents from my sister…this book is hilarious.
Christmas Dinner, love my Grandma!
Merry Christmas!
