This weekend was a great last weekend before Christmas - and a very hectic one.
I met my best friends from college for breakfast and manis first thing Saturday morning. We did this on Christmas Eve last year, and it was fun to be able to do it again this year. We ate breakfast at La Farm and it was so good. I'd had bread from there before, but never eaten there and I will definitely be going back.

After that, we went and picked up our headboard and mom and I were able to finish our Christmas shopping. I am so thrilled with how it turned out. It feels like a totally different room. We used ABZ Upholstery and I would definitely use them again. In fact, I think mom's going to have them make her a headboard as well. They're located on Capital Boulevard in between downtown and the Wade Avenue exit - it could not have been more convenient to our house.

Saturday night was Meredith and Kevin's annual Christmas party. The food and decorations were amazing, as always. Meredith definitely knows how to throw a party (Remember my bridal shower?!). We have more fun with every year of this party and it's something I always look forward to every Christmas. Brandon is the best and always offers to drive us home so I don't have to worry about anything. I'm sure Meredith will do a full recap on her blog, but here are some of my favorite pictures.

Today's my last day of work until January 2nd and I'm so excited for the time off. Brandon will hopefully have the same time off and I'm looking forward to getting to spend lots of time with him. I feel like we've both been going a hundred miles a minute this fall and it'll be nice to slow down. I'm also looking forward to the weather being a more normal December temperature starting tomorrow. Yesterday was just too hot.
