My favorite part of the Christmas season is my son's birthday. He is my oldest and I never fail to remember the Christmas we spent with our sweet baby who was only 4 days old. I have learned so much from him and being his mother is a true blessing to me. He just celebrated his 19th birthday and will be leaving in 5 short weeks to serve an LDS mission in Argentina. My heart is so full because I am so proud of this amazing person who is my child, but I will miss him more than words can say.

I finally feel like I can get excited for Christmas! Gifts are bought, wrapped, handed out, shipped and ready to go under the tree. Plus we have had lots of Christmas treats being delivered from our friends and neighbors, yum! I decided to join in on more Christmas fun and wear one of my favorite Christmas-type sweaters and link up over at Statements in Fashion. Check it out because there are some seriously cute outfits goin on over there.

Sometimes I will put together an outfit for the day and then after seeing how cute it is I decide it is too cute for that day and I have to save it for a day that is more special. I think to myself, "I am only going to the grocery store today, and this outfit is way to cute for that." I don't know why, I guess I am afraid I will have an activity where I want to look great and I won't have anything great to wear. So, I save cute outfits for more important activities. I know, weird. Does any one else "save" their favorite outfits?

For the past few weeks I have had a hard time deciding what I should wear to church. I try to put together a few outfits the night before, but no matter how confident I feel I have found the perfect outfit, I always spend way to much time changing clothes, shoes, skirts, jewelry etc. I usually end up wearing whatever I have on when time runs out and I have to leave. I don't like feeling like my outfit is thrown together, but for some reason I can't find the perfect combo on Sundays. I guess it's because I can't throw on my jeans to wear to church and I always feel good in my jeans. What do you do when you can't figure out your outfit? Do have standard favs you fall back on?

It seems like no matter how organized I am... I always have those last minute gifts to buy and wrap. I guess that is all part of the hustle and bustle of Christmas.

Today the sun is shining. I don't want to sound cheesy but I feel sunny today too. We had an amazing lesson at church and it made me feel full of hope and happiness. I just love those lessons that make you feel so sunny inside. (I know cheesy) Today is a full day of church, choir practice, tithing settlement and a fireside. I usually don't like to have so much in one day, but today it is not bothering me and the sunshine has a lot to do with it! Have a great Sunday:)

I am not sure why this creamy white is called winter white, I guess so it is a more acceptable color for winter then regular white? Anyway, I love this color and when I found these pants at Victoria's Secret in winter white corduroy, I knew they had to be mine! (They also have a pair in the color Port Wine, I am hoping Santa will put those under my tree this year!) I love corduroy in the fall/winter and these pants were the perfect addition to my wardrobe. What would you wear with your winter white pants?

I have not been posting for over a month now and I am trying to decide if I want to keep doing this blog. I love creating new outfits but taking pictures everyday and posting can be a bit overwhelming. I want to do some things to increase my followers but I am not going to unless I decide to keep writing this blog. My life is busy and full with my husband and kids but I really enjoy doing this for myself. When I saw the OTI link up over at Freckles in April, I though it sounded so fun and just had to jump on the bandwagon. Maybe it will help me with my decision...

Over the last few weeks I have had one of these following me around. I am not normally a gloom and doom kind of person, actually I am the opposite, I am that annoyingly happy person you usually want to strangle. So this cloud has been making me question what is going on in my life.
After several days of searching and a long, tear-filled talk with my hubby, my cloud has started to move off into the distance. But during that long talk I decided I needed to set some goals and accomplish some things to help keep me out of my funk. Today was the first day of this journey and I must say it was a successful day. I feel great today and very accomplished. Sometimes it takes me awhile to realize I have fallen away from the things I hold dear, but I always feel better when I jump on the trail again. Staying close to a loving Heavenly Father always makes life better.
