Weekend Scenes

It was cold in NYC this weekend.Β It felt like it was 7 degrees outside. And for once, I’m not exaggerating. Those were the weather girl’s words, not mine.

Here are scenes from our weekend…

Christmas Story, anyone?

Warm, stylish and functional puppy fashion.

Dave was gone Friday night for work, but the babies and I survived our first night home alone. He arrived back home Saturday and we are officially in the holiday mood in this house! My family is coming in this week from Florida and I am giddy with excitement! We have lots of exciting things planned, including the Macy’s Day Parade! πŸ™‚

What are your holiday plans? What do you love most about this time of year? What was the most exciting part of your weekend?Β 












  1. Oooh, I bet that candle smells amazing! I love peppermint bark too… yum.

    We are having two Thanksgivings this year; one on Thursday with my husband’s family and one on Friday with my mom. Then we will be in full-blown Christmas mode! I really love love love Christmas and everything about the holiday season, so I can’t wait to get all my decorations out!

    • Two Thanksgivings sounds fabulous! Double the food! πŸ™‚

    • Once I started running, I was okay but getting out there and running that first mile was TOUGH! I have quickly come to the conclusion that I can handle the cold, but I cannot handle the wind. On super windy days I will be keeping my workout inside!

  2. Those dogs in their vests, too cute!! And I love BBW candles – so delicious! Glad you survived Friday night. I am sure the cookies helped. πŸ˜‰

    • I’m not sure that Marley really ‘needs’ a vest because his coat is pretty thick, but Ob shivers to death out there when it drops below the thirties!

      And if you love BBW candles, try the eucalyptus scent for your bathroom or bedroom. I think it makes our place smell like a spa. And of course, I love the spiced wreath scent because it smells like Christmas in a jar.

    • P.S. I think if you enter the code “SIGNATURE13” at checkout on (website only) you get 20% of your purchase! πŸ˜‰

  3. I just discovered your blog, love it!

    I’m in the full Christmas spirit too, we put up our tree yesterday and it will officially be lit up for all waking hours of the day (while we are home, obvi). I love everything about it πŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much, Laura! Love the name of your blog – I could always use more sparkle in my life. πŸ™‚

      And our tree will be going up this week! CAN’T WAIT!

  4. YES! I believe it feels that cold everywhere! We have always talked about taking a trip to NYC at Christmas time, I bet it is just beautiful! Great job girl braving the cold and running outside!!

    • Oh, if you ever get the chance definitely visit NYC at Christmas. It is so much fun and there are so many festive things to do and see! And if you’re ever in NYC, we can have a blogger meet up and go for a run! πŸ™‚

  5. Peppermint Bark! OMG Peppermint Bark! This is the ONLY thing I want for Christmas. Seriously. Every year I take Alex to William Sonoma and point it out and let him know that I will be *ahem* upset if there isn’t a tin under the Christmas Tree. I am SO jealous that you already have one. Very, very jealous.

  6. What a fun weekend you all had! You look so great carrying a baby on your front πŸ™‚

    Mmmmm salted caramel anything = MY FAVE.

    I love Christmas lights–so NYC would be so fun at this time. Enjoy it!
