Up until about five minutes ago, I was totally under the impression that tomorrow (Monday) was New Year’s Eve, haha. Isn’t it funny how you completely lose track of time–and days–when you’re away?! These photos were taken yesterday(at least, I think they were ;)) at Mitch’s grandmother’s Christmas celebration out in Illinois, which was fabulous. Grandma Smith put so much effort into making the party absolutely perfect! And how cute is this? She had Mitch’s uncle stomp around upstairs and ring jingle bells for the kiddos. They went nuts. So adorable.

As it was our last Christmas event of the year, I couldn’t resist wearing this J.Crew bow top (a present from my mom) and this Madewell black watch plaid skirt (a present from my aunt). Bows and black watch plaid? Only my two favorite patterns ever. My family knows me so well! Thanks, Mom and Auntie-M! Love you! xoxo
