1 | Puppy sitting. I house/puppy sat for some friends over the weekend. It was nice to have some introvert time. I worked on posts, ate popcorn, watched cheesy Christmas movies, and snuggled with an adorable pup.

2 | Mockingjay, round two. My friends Alex and Todd are my Hunger Games buddies. We go see the movies together...it's just the way things are. :) They were out of the town the weekend Mockingjay came out and made me promise to go see it again with them. Of course I obliged. I was still on the edge of my seat the second time!

3 | Vacation prep. I spent the entire day on Saturday doing laundry and getting things ready to pack for Disney!! I am the worst when it comes to making packing decisions. I always stress over what to bring, and what the weather might be like, and do I have enough jackets?? Haha. I am such a planner.

4 | Brown paper packages. I received some fun Christmas gifts last week that made my heart smile. The cutest print from one of my favorite artists...I like to pretend it's me and my pup. Thanks to dear friends who send thoughtful gifts! :)

P.S. I am leaving for my Disney vacation today. Bah! I'm over-the-moon excited to spend a whole week with some of my best friends in the happiest place on earth! A whole week of no work and no checking emails. :) Follow along with our adventures on instagram. You can count on me to post fun photos from Disney and Harry Potter world! Woohoo!

Sweet Mandy has been hanging out on my sidebar this month, and if you haven't had the chance to visit her, you can do that now! :)

Mandy just got back from an overseas adventure, and I love her really helpful tips for traveling in Europe! She also has some great recommendations for your Chicago travels (a city that I love!) Oh, and her advice about Pinterest is some we could all benefit from!
