Editor's Note: Today I am wearing sweater from Anthropologie, skirt from Banana Republic, belt from Cole Hahn, and kitten heels from Vince Camuto.
What a jammed packed weekend I had! I went to a deb party on Friday night, a party at a friends home on Saturday night, a clients party on the afternoon on Sunday, and a girls dinner gathering on Sunday night. I recently found out what the elf on a shelf means and the magic behind the elf that moves around. I felt like an elf on a shelf this weekend at parties. I ran into so many different people that I could hardly remember which party I saw them at but it was all fun and festive and I loved getting to see my friends and clients so close to Christmas. As I was wrapping furiously in between parties this weekend. It dawned on me that the beautiful wrapping that I do is part of the whole Christmas season. I buy my presents for people all year long and put them in the closet or under the bed in tubs. I truly put a lot of thought of what I buy for each person. So instead of realizing how badly my back hurt from bending over from wrapping I looked upon all the wrapping and delivering of presents as a part of Christmas. My gift of myself to others! Merry Christmas week everyone! I was up early this morning looking for my Instagram posts today while I laid on my heating pad in my bed today for my poor aching back. I think I found some great ones and I hope you enjoy!

Dinner from Saturday night was grass fed beef, stuffing from Michael's restaurant, and asparagus cooked in the oven. I fixed dinner for Mother, Riley, and I before I went to my party on Saturday evening! I set the table for Christmas on Saturday morning --I had so much fun! Riley contributed the precious card which looks like my dog Lacie Rue. She brought it from New York! Let the Christmas week begin. I am so excited!
One of my favorite songs--White Christmas!
