Aren't sleepovers with girlfriends the best?! Combine that with cozy holiday pjs + delicious mimosas + yummy hot chocolate and it's the perfect weekend. I absolutely love getting Christmas pajamas each year, and it was fun to lounge around and have girl time with these sweet blog gals. When I question whether or not I should continue blogging, it's these girls who remind me that I'm thankful for this hobby of mine. I'm blessed to have formed great friendships all because I sat down in front of a computer and pressed publish one day.
Shelby from Pretty in the Pines and I met in Raleigh over the weekend, had a quick shopping date at Nordstrom, and headed up to Charlotte to spend the night with Taylor-Rae. I met TR from Style Souffle when we competed at Miss North Carolina together back in 2011 - who knew that 5 years later we would be blog friends?! And I had been reading Shelby's blog for a few months before we met at a FlyBarre class thanks to ClassPass. We've been friends ever since. It's so nice to have girlfriends who understand the ends and outs of the blog world.
We spent our time laughing and giggling, sharing blog talk, talking about weddings (and future weddings) -- all the girl stuff. I chose these leggings because I couldn't resist the adorable reindeer fair isle print + they were super cozy (I'm normally a 2-4 and purchased a medium). I would wear them morning, day and night if it was work-appropriate. I'm pretty sure I'll be wearing them well past the holiday season, too - although I'm very sad that the days between now and December 25th are flying by. Though I'm not wishing the Christmas season away, I can't wait for more girl time + hot chocolate with these gals. Good think we're all headed to Dallas for Create + Cultivate in January!
