12.16.14 | red plaids and a little elf

dec13_6

Giving some Minnesota love to the local shop Primp Boutique. Love this graphic tee the designed for their affordable shop! I feel like I am piling red plaids on everything these days because nothing screams Christmas more than red flannels.

We are barely needing layers here which is shocking for mid-December and I am praying for one burst of snow before the holidays come, because Christmas should always be frosted white. And just like Santa I always have my little elf on hand to help me make sure that I enjoy the season. I am loving all the twinkly lights and the melodies of Christmas. I also feel like this is the perfect time to start reviving my obsession with Gilmore Girls, which I am awaiting someone to give me the last season on DVD since I have all the others. Hint Hint Andy in case you are reading this! I know the cold is just around the corner so when I burry myself by the fire I know I will need Lorelei's insightful parenting advice to get me through the months.

Until then I am definitely loving the process of creating a new home with an entirely idea. I was initially thinking I wanted a mid-century style, but it just didn't suit the home, nor did it feel completely true to my taste. Our new place is very cottage-esque is calling for a farmhouse modern look. I am loving this new perspective on our home and I definitely feel that it will be a reflection of Minnesota and some Scandinavian influence. The boys' shared room is next and it definitely is going to be true to Minnesota and have a camp feel with untreated wood bunk bed and fully equipped with some sort of wool blankets (my love for Pendleton isn't going away any time soon...) and I am finding ways to sneak some scandinavian influence into their space. Can't wait! Now if only my budget was as big as my imagination....

You both look perfect and making me crave more winter-like weather as well! Kaitlyn had a similar red plaid pj set last year and I'm sad she outgrew it. That bonnet though! <3
