I feel like I’ve said this every month, but how is it already December?! My mom and I started the month off with a trip to the Outlet Shoppes of Atlanta earlier this week (I still don’t understand how they get away with claiming Atlanta when they’re actually 45 minutes north in Woodstock, but I digress…). We didn’t really plan it this way, but it was the best time to go — the place was empty on a weekday morning after the madness of Black Friday, but all the sales were still going on. Score for us! We got Leighton that adorable peplum puffy coat from GAP Kids, but she was clearly not a fan!
We celebrated my mom’s birthday with lunch and dinner out on Thursday, and Leighton turned 12 weeks that day, too. It’s been so amazing having mom here full-time, and I know it was extra special for us all to be together for her birthday… especially when they didn’t have to turn around and go home to Florida afterward!
I kept busy with 3 more photo sessions (lots of babies being born!) and my holiday Stella & Dot trunk show/sample sale. It was an amazing turnout and so much fun to spend the afternoon with neighbors, friends, old coworkers, and my mom. It was also Leighton’s first trunk show – she loved it so much that she passed out and slept through a good bit of it.
I’m looking forward to this coming week — girls Christmas dinners and ornament exchanges, a tacky sweater party, lunch with a friend, and finishing up the year for MHP with 4 more photo sessions.
