This morning, I had an outfit picked out in my head, but when I put it on... it was not so good. I looked frrrrrrrrrruuuuuumpy!!! Yikes. No one wants that. But, we had to go for brunch! I threw this outfit together in less than 3 minutes, I think (thanks to Connie, my stepmom, and the fact that the skirt was still on from previous attempt)! And, I am quite impressed. :)
Can I just tell you how much I LOVE my coat. I do. I.love.it.
Coat: Kenneth Cole, birthday gift 2 years ago from my momma
Grey cardigan: Target, same as last week
Sparkly tank: White House Black Market, borrowed from Connie
Skirt: No clue what brand, my mom gave it to me!
Tights: gift from mom
Booties: Leila Rose?? Or something. Bought a few years ago.
Belt: no clue what brand, borrowed from Connie. Isn't it great?!
Liturgically correct bracelet: Links of London, gifted from Connie (who got it as a gift for refinancing, but it was too small for her wrist! Guess who scored on this?!)
Earrings: rhinestone studs, gift from momma
Necklace: Open Hearts, gift from momma
Sunglasses: Charming Charlie's
Annnnnnnd this is what happens when your dad takes the pics:
My evening ended with a wonderful Mass at a church that I had never been...
... but with a priest that I know and love, whom I haven't seen in FOREVER! He is one of the most reverent priests I know. I love watching him celebrate Mass. There is just no way that you can NOT believe what is happening when you see him in action. Just beautiful.
And then a quite typical 4 hour post-Mass dinner with my wonderful friend, Sarah (yes, the one who calls me Nej)! :) I am just so, so, SO blessed to have her in my life. I know you will read this, friend, so thank you again for a great evening. I love you and am honored to have you in my life!
I hope you had a great last Sunday of Advent!
I also hope that you have a wonderful and blessed Christmas! Enjoy it with family, friends, good food and memories. :)

I think I am going to take a little time away from this blog for a bit. Don't be surprised when there isn't anything happening until after the New Year. I need to refocus the attention that I have given this back to the Lord. So, Happy New Year, as well!! See you all soon!
Amor, paz y abrazos,
