Oversized Sweater // The Pregnancy Issue




Okay, Shoe Dazzle has been killing it for me lately in the shoe department! They have some of the cutest shoes and they are also so affordable. These fuchsia heels are my favorite... of the moment. ;]




------

In other news, H and I have been toying with the idea of me getting pregnant. [Too personal, say whaaaat?] I wrote THIS post a year and a half ago, where I talked about how every month I was convinced that I was pregnant! Lol, I'm sure you have all been there... But last month, I kid you not, I was POSITIVE that I was pregnant. We hadn't been trying, per say... But we weren't really not trying either, you catch my drift?  Anyway, after Googling everything about early signs of pregnancy, ovulation, the earliest possible time to detect pregnancy, etc, I bought a 3 pack box of pregnancy tests. Guys, I took the first one a few weeks ago, and after being bummed that it was negative, I chalked it up to just being a little too early to tell. So a couple of days later, I took another one-- this time in the morning, because Google told me that morning is the best time to detect HCG levels. It was negative again. Then my period came, but it was lighter and shorter than normal, so after more Googling, I decided it must be implantation bleeding. Anyway, a few days later, still convinced that I was pregnant, I took the 3rd test. Alas, it was also negative. [H was annoyed that I wasted $15 in pregnancy tests in one week, haha!] Anyway, so I downloaded this app that tracks your period, ovulation, tells you when you're most fertile, etc. Oh, and I've been reading everrrrything that I learn from Google to H; I'm sure he's thrilled about it. [Haha seriously, at least once a day, I'm like "Did you know this?" And he's like, "Oh... Cool, babe."]

I'm not even sure yet if we are for sure "ready" to start trying. I go back and forth on it all the time. One day I want a baby and I'm ready for it, and the next day I'm not. But honestly... Are you ever really "ready" for a baby? I feel like you can never really prepare yourself to be a parent and to have a baby. What do you experienced mamas think?? Were you "ready" or is that just a myth?? Haha! I'd love any and all advice that you guys have for ladies in my situation.

Red




Happy Monday! I can't believe that Christmas has come and gone and now we have to wait a whole year for it to be here again. Hopefully you all got what you were wishing for this year! Santa brought me the Michael Kors watch that I've had my eye on forever, and he totally surprised me with it! :] I also got a KitchenAid Mixer, which means there will now be lots and lots of chocolate chip cookies at the Farnsworth home... ;] 

Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by, and I'd love to know how your Christmas was & what gifts you gave/received! :]

Christmas Jammies

Happy Christmas Eve, everyone! I can't believe it's already here! Every year my family gets together and throws a "Classy Christmas Eve" dinner party, where we all dress in our fanciest outfits. We have dinner, the kids act out the Nativity scene, perform musical numbers, and then we open gifts from each other. (This is my parents, 9 siblings plus spouses, plus 30 nieces and nephews. Every year, each couple draws another couple from a hat, and we get presents for that family.) Anyway, I am so excited for tonight's festivities, but I am also excited to get into my Christmas pajamas afterwards to drink hot cocoa and watch a Christmas movie, while finishing up some last minute wrapping. I wanted to share a few of my favorite Christmas pajamas below -- I'm seriously obsessed with the gingerbread ones!! Ha! :)

Bright Bows





I am so in love with these ShoeDazzle bow heels! They add the perfect flirty and feminine touch to any outfit! (I'm waiting for the black to be back in stock so I can snatch those up too... But THESE similar ones are also great!) Oh, and please don't mind how wrinkly this skirt is! I ironed it before we took these pictures, but just from sitting in the car for 10 minutes, it got all wrinkled again. Ugh, linen is so frustrating! Ha! 
Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Holiday Casual









CHRISTMAS IS IN 3 DAYS!! I am so excited and so ready for it to be here!!

I also had the best Sunday service yesterday, which was a great reminder of the true meaning of Christmas. If any of you have an extra minute, please go watch THIS video. (It is one of my absolute favorites!) It is so easy to get caught up in the commercialism of Christmas, because it really is so fun to go Christmas shopping and to give/receive gifts. Of course I love all of that, along with the decorations and Christmas music... but we need to also be sure to take a step back and remember what this holiday season is all about. I always love the lessons at Church on the Sunday right before Christmas... it makes me feel so extremely grateful for Christ and for the true meaning of this wonderful season.

Last Minute Shopping

Christmas is officially only 1 week away!! AHHHH!! I am so excited for it to be here and to give & receive gifts. (Side note -- This is the first Christmas/birthday/anniversary/anything that H has picked out gifts out for me without me being there, so I don't know any of my gifts. I'm so excited!! :) Anyway, make sure you hurry and get your last minute shopping done so you don't have to pay outrageous shipping costs! Here are some great ideas for gifts/stocking stuffers! (I am getting my mom THIS, my sister THIS, and maybe THIS for myself... ;)

Weekend Casual



Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. As Christmas draws closer and closer, I start to lose my mind a little bit. I actually purchased some great gifts this weekend that I am so excited to give, but I get stressed out knowing that there are still so many things left to do. A week or two before Christmas, the ladies in my family all get together and have a "Candy Day" where we get together and spend the whole day baking treats to give to neighbors/co-workers. We had our annual "Candy Day" on Saturday, and it was so much fun... which helped my stress levels go down a notch. ;) I also have been watching some cute Christmas movies on Netflix in my spare time -- like Holiday in Handcuffs and The 12 Dates of Christmas. (I recommend both if you like cheesy movies. :) Do you guys have any other cheesy Netflix movies that I should watch this week? 




Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Holiday Photos 2014






My Outfit Details: Chambray // Sweater // Skirt // Tights // Belt // Necklace

H's Outfit Details: Shirt // Denim // Shoes


Happy Friday, everyone! I wanted to share with you some of our Holiday photos that we took a few weeks ago. Brooke from Keki Photography took them, and she is incredible! (If you're in AZ, I totally recommend her!) H and I actually haven't had professional photos taken since our wedding, so I thought we should after 2 years. Plus, you never know when your last Christmas with just the 2 of you might be... ;) I wanted our outfits to be festive, but still look good on our walls without looking like they were Christmas photos. They turned out so perfect, I couldn't be happier!





Have a great weekend!

Holiday Gift Guide (Repeat)

I shared this post on Sunday, but wanted to quickly share it again. (I also added a few other great items I'm loving right now at the bottom of the post! PS - I absolutely LOVE these Baublebar items that are in these adorable gift boxes!) Christmas is only 2 weeks away (ahhh!) and I am freaking out trying to get all of my last minute shopping done. I still have to buy gifts for my mom & dad and my brothers. Are you still getting your shopping done, or are your gifts already wrapped and under the tree? :)















And a few more...





Thanks for stopping by, and happy Holiday shopping! :]

Dress It Down






Last week, I shared THIS look with you guys... I couldn't wait to share today's post, where I took this Banana Republic dress and "dressed it down." I love pieces that I can wear multiple ways, and this knit dress definitely fits the bill. 

(On a side note, H and I started working out at our apartment gym this week, and I am SORE! Haha. Unfortunately, I have to admit that I am kind of the worst when it comes to working out, because I can't stay motivated. What about you guys? Do you have any tips/tricks to staying motivated?? I'd love to hear any ideas!)
