On Friday we flew into Chicago to spend some time with J's family. We started our evening with dinner at Ditka's with J's family and even saw "Da Coach" Mike Ditka coming in as we were leaving!! Then we went to see the Joffrey Ballet's performance of "The Nutcracker". The set was gorgeous, the Tchaikovsky music was timeless, and the ballet dancers were some of the best I've ever seen.
|I felt like Kate Middleton in this dress... French Connection Dress. Prada Heels. J.Crew Earrings. Chanel Travel Clutch.|
On Saturday we joined the rest of J's family for Santa Brunch at the country club. It was adorable... Santa was walking around, greeting the tables. There was a piano player singing Christmas carols with the kids and tables of kids decorating gingerbread houses. I loved watching J's niece and nephews work on their little houses and decorate.
After brunch, we went to J's parents' house and asked his niece and nephews to be in our wedding. I'll post more on Wedding Wednesday, but it was soooo much fun to watch them all get excited and open their little gifts!!
That afternoon, J and his sister and I went for a little jaunt to the shops in their hometown. I forgot my favorite Alice & Olivia for Starbucks mug at the ranch, so J bought me another. These are so adorable, and so are the gold coffee collars that can be added to the bottom of any drink. They're sold out online, so if you want them you have to search your local Starbucks!!
I changed into a comfy top and jeans for a family Christmas party and gift exchange Saturday evening. I wore the Kate Spade earrings I had in my Holiday Gift Guide for Brides... I scored them at 30% off on Cyber Monday and I absolutely love them. They're so feminine!!
Are you in the swing of the holiday season too?? I'm getting through the holiday stress with lots of sugar and caffeine.
What did you do this weekend??
