I am really excited about the upcoming holidays. My husband is heading out of town soon for his annual Guys' Trip with his brothers and their dad. Since their trip this year was going to run into my birthday, my husband invited me to join him after their game for a fun weekend getaway. Well, the weekend literally got away from us after I invited my mother-in-law to join us, too so I could celebrate my birthday with my in-laws over dinner and a show. Then my brother-in-law thought that sounded like a great idea and he invited his wife, too! What was supposed to be a low-key birthday weekend is now a bonafide Birthday/Christmas extravaganza complete with spa treatments! We took advantage of the last weekend before Christmas to meet up with friends for a holiday double date. Thanks to the wacky weather, all I want to wear lately are pants. My compromise was an off-the-shoulder sweater and sky-high heels, but that was because I haven't had these trousers tailored yet.
