Happy 2017, friends!! Sorry about the silence over here this past week. I took so much needed time with my family to enjoy every second of the holidays! It's crazy that the holidays are gone and we are in 2017! Every year the time goes faster and faster. You guys, I'm going to be 30 this year!! It's a good thing I still feel 18 at heart!

I resisted buying these leggings for about a year. Everybody and their mother raved about them, but for whatever reason, I didn't think I needed them. The price point scared me off a little. I honestly thought $55 for a pair of leggings was a little much! Boy, was I wrongggg! While after Christmas shopping with my mom, I decided to break down and give them a try. What a waste of this last year. I could have had a lot more comfort in my life had I added these to my wardrobe earlier. They are so, so slimming! Thanks to the holidays and way too many treats, I am a little fluffier than normal ;) You'd never know though when I'm wearing these!! #winning

Another slimming piece of clothing that I have been loving is this sweater. The slight bell sleeves are the cutest touch and of course the lace up detailing won me over. I hope lace ups stay around for a long time because I can't get enough! It also comes in 4 other colors and it's only $23. The green looks really pretty!!

Fun fact, I won this beanie on Instagram when Shop BellaC was doing a giveaway. I never ever win, so I was thrilled!! I had been waiting for the perfect occasion to finally wear it. 

 On New Years Eve we took a little road trip up to Julian for lunch and to check out the snow. This drive has always been my favorite in San Diego. It was a thousand times better with all the snow. We stopped up at our date spot, The Julian Grille for lunch. Kennedy was an absolute doll, which was nice, since going out to eat can be scary with a toddler! Haha if you have a toddler, you probably know what I'm talking about! It gave us hope that we can start going out to eat more often. Or else it was just a New Years Eve miracle!!

After lunch we headed back up to the snow to let Kennedy play in it. This was her first time and we had no idea what to expect as far as her reaction. Well she LOVED it and cried when we made her leave. It was so cute to watch her waddle around in her puffy jacket taking it all in. She was amazed that there was leaves buried in the snow and kept picking them out.  Watching her take it in was the highlight of the whole trip! 

Later that night after we put Kennedy down, we celebrated with a cheese plate & wine. Tyler was asleep by 10:30 and some how I managed to stay awake well past midnight watching a movie. We had such a calm, laid back New Years Eve, but it was honestly perfect & there was no place I'd rather be! 

I hope all of you had a fun time ringing in the New Year too!! Something tells me this year is going to be extra fabulous. A lot of it may have to do with our wedding, but there's also another exciting thing happening that I can't wait to share with you guys very, very soon!!
