{Friday Favorites} – Christmas Hats edition

There are so many favorites from the last couple weeks…where to start!? My most favorite, is that today, TimTheFarmer and I are waking up in El Paso with the cutest two nephews ever AND two of my favorite people are on their way from the CO.


Lindsay and I have been friends since we were in utero (TMI?) and although we don’t get to spend nearly enough time together, when we do, the laughs and smarty-pants comments don’t stop. She’s responsible for the sassy note from this post. Her boyfriend is coming who is just as big of a smarty-pants AND he matches his shoelaces to his outfits daily (something I’m in awe of, I don’t even own extra shoelaces) AND he’s a wildlife biologist, so he and TimTheFarmer totally geek out about animals and other things nature-related together. They visited us this fall in NY and we had a blast!IMG_3017

1. Christmas Hats and Crooked Smiles

I love close relationships between aunts/uncles and nieces/nephews. As already stated, my nephews are my favorite!! It’s also evident anytime they’re together that the kiddo is Uncle Jeffy’s favorite, as evidenced by the joy protruding from the below image.


We picked up these antlers and elf hat at the dollar store (which always an equally terrifying and fascinating shopping trip) and they wore them throughout our Thanksgiving brunch. I love how these two both have a crooked, up-to-no-good, sweet smile.


Clearly they can barely stand each other.


2. Pictures You Find on Your Camera After a Party

These are two of my good friends’ adorable daughters – how sweet are all these pictures?! This sequence is hilarious.

3. Homemade Housewarming Gifts

Our friend Steve, who is primarily responsible for TimTheFarmer and I meeting is super crafty. He made us this 6 Pack of 6 Packs beer carrier! He’s taking orders if anyone else needs one.


4. Christmas Hats All the Time

I’m totally going to get in trouble for this, but I can’t resist. While I was finishing painting the trim, I snapped this shot of TimTheFarmer feeling festive while making breakfast, with Taz looking on in hopes of dropped bacon. #amazing


5. A Put Together House

As I mentioned, thanks to 2nd Thanksgiving, we finally got our house put together. It was so amazing to wake up Sunday morning and not feel like we immediately had to get to work on projects or painting or putting things away. We have many many many projects ahead of us, but for now, we’re enjoying decorating for the holidays and the box- and paint-free zone.
