Thanksgiving has come and gone and now we welcome December! But does anyone else feel as if they need a week of recovery following Thanksgiving? Once Thanksgiving hits I am in complete holiday mode; so the work weeks leading up to Christmas seem to drag. Not to mention  we have been SO busy! In the midst of preparing for the holidays, decorating, traveling, gift shopping, organizing holiday parties, and finishing up last minute projects for the year- we decided to rescue a puppy.. Not just your average puppy either, we rescued a 5 week old puppy who truly needs more attention than an infant. As some of you may have seen from my Instagram photos, she is the sweetest little Siberian husky named Aspen 🙂 After hearing that her mama was no longer caring for her I knew we had to take her in and nurture her. It was not easy. The first few nights she was waking up every hour to go potty, she was on a strict feeding schedule, and we were still providing puppy formula for her so that she could receive all the necessary nutrients that she was no longer receiving from her mama’s milk. But we survived! She is sleeping almost entirely though the night now and solely eating puppy food– she still has not been vaccinated yet (due to her young age) so we cannot take her to public places yet and we need to be very careful when we take her outside to potty. It has all been worth it though because she is so sweet and adorable, I will provide more photos of her for y’all soon! Aside from being busy caring for TWO dogs now, Thomas and I are busy prepping for our holiday party that we are hosting next week. We decided on an ugly christmas sweater party, we think it’ll be fun to celebrate the holiday while getting a good laugh from the ugly sweaters that our friends wear and or make. 

I may have been busy the past few weeks but that did not stop me from shopping and taking advantage of  the great deals stores were having over the weekend and on Cyber Monday. Is it just me or did it feel as if the deals this year were incredible! I purchased so many great items, including this fun blue holiday sweater and plaid scarf. I am usually all about wearing neutrals (I can’t help it) but this gorgeous blue caught my eye and I am so glad I purchased it!  For sizing reference, the sweater does run small; so I suggest going one size up, this will also provides a more relaxed and cozy fit as well! 

I have linked my outfit details below along with a few other goodies I purchased over the weekend. PS; my sweater is currently on sale for $25!
