Hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was mostly filled with work unfortunately. Friday evening I was feeling pretty run-down so I came home a bit early and just relaxed until Mauricio came home.
A snow storm was also predicted to come in, so we decided it was probably best just to stay in and watch movies all night. We watched Fences followed by a marathon of way too many Survivor episodes … we’re both addicted.
Saturday morning we woke up to a flurry of snow (as predicted) so we spent the morning cuddled up until it was time to heat up the car and get going for the day. Mauricio was volunteering as a judge for this youth organization that has kids come out and present their business idea and then the winner gets $1,000 to put towards their idea. Basically like the kid version of Shark Tank. So I dropped him off for that then I had to go out to some of my accounts to help with some holiday parties that were featuring my brands (if you don’t remember, I work for a liquor company).
That evening the roads were starting to get pretty bad so we decided just to stay in for the rest of the night. I watched Cheaper by the Dozen cuddled up with my heating pad while Mauricio studied for the GMAT.
Sunday morning was pretty much the same story- I had to go to a few more of my accounts while Mauricio went to his GMAT prep class… We’re so fun. lol.
Around 1:00 I picked him up from his class and we went to have lunch at Chipotle, because thats literally all I’ve been craving lately. After Chipotle we headed back to the apartment and I tested out some healthy/vegan cookie recipes. The first batch was pretty awful, Mauricio spit it out in the trash LOL. The second batch was significantly better, but still not good enough to share the recipe with y’all yet. Soon.
For dinner I ate the rest of my Chipotle from Lunch while binge watching the rest of season 26 of Survivor. I decided to get in bed around 9pm and read my book (currently reading Swear on This Life and LOVE it) to try to relax my mind and body in hopes that I would have a bit better of a night sleep. Baby has really been keeping me up lately.
So that was our weekend in a nutshell..nothing too crazy.
With Holiday season in full swing, its time for back to back parties and celebrations. You know what that means? New outfits! 🙂 Haha at least thats what I personally look forward to. Getting new outfits can be expensive though, so I’m rounding up some of my favorite Holiday Style Dresses that come in under $125! My tip is to buy 1 black dress and 1 colorful dress. Wear the black dress to your husbands company Christmas party AND to your own company christmas party… save yourself the headache of picking out two different outfits for these ones. Even if you take an Instagram photo for both, black dresses are known to be repeat pieces and most people wont even notice. Just switch up the accessories and shoes and you can totally revamp the look.
Save the colorful ‘look at me’ dress for your friends Christmas Party or for New Years. Don’t be the wife/girlfriend that shows up to your husbands Company Christmas Party in a hot pink dress. Modest is better in this case.
