finishing touches

 look at my blogger pointy-in toes!
 boots: thrifted; leggings: old navy maternity; top: panache; necklace: truly sarah
20 weeks!
i don't think this outfit looks super comfortable, but it totally is. bonus points: david said i looked hot. i love it when that happens. sometimes he says it on obviously ugly days, though, so i don't know how trustworthy his opinion is...

yesterday i put the finishing touches for christmas on our little apartment. 
i'm so excited to be decorating a bit this year!
 my flamingo got his santa suit on,
 the mistletoe got hung (and kissed under),
 the first christmas gifts got wrapped and placed under the (teeny) tree,
and most importantly, the nativity got set up on the television at the center of our living room!
i'll admit i got a little teary putting that baby Jesus in place. what a miraculous, glorious reason for a month of celebration and joy! i don't care how many (ahem, unwelcome) rude comments i get here, i will not skip an opportunity to let you know how grateful i am that Christ is the center of my religion, my life, and this holiday season.
