Hallelujah for Friday! 

As of today, I am officially on a 2.5 week Christmas break. {The perks of doing communications for a school district!} Brandon has been gone all week on his last business trip of the year, and Walker and I are both so excited to see him! It's a happy day 'round these parts!

And this should probably say, "Teachers and central office staff..." Ha! 

I updated our closet on Monday night, and to say I'm in love with my closet now is quite the understatement. Savannah got me hooked on velvet hangers when I was on maternity leave, and I have done little bits at a time since the hangers aren't exactly the cheapest! 

Since we have Amazon Prime {seriously can't say enough great things about Prime!}, I ordered these hangers on Saturday and got them on Monday. My closet went from a mess of plastic hangers in all colors of the rainbow...

It's so clean and nice looking, and there is so much more space!!! I would highly recommend doing this to your closet...with a glass of wine, of course! :)

I'm pretty sure I need this mug in my life. Now.

Loft has sucked me in again with their 40% or 50% off sales! The latest recent purchases? I seriously need to stop since Christmas is less than a week away! 

And because I love him more than words, here's a picture of Walker to round out this post. He's pretty excited it's the weekend, too! 

Linking up with the following lovely ladies today: 

Amy and Karli



  1. Loving everything about this post. Except I'm a little jealous you get two weeks off!! We only get Christmas Day and New Years day off. Boo. Your closet looks awesome and I love all of your loft picks! I kind of miss having Blair Waldorf in my life too. :) Have a fab weekend!

  2. How is Walker feeling? Tons better?

    My husband works for a college and he's been off for OVER a week now - and doesn't go back until the 5th - So, I am not jealous of him AND you. Jerks ;) j/k

    I love Walker's picture - He's such a cutie!

    AND THOSE SHIRTS! MAN oh MAN - I really love them all!

  3. As a former teacher, I hear ya on the Christmas break thing. Second only to summer break. And that mug is amazing!

  4. Stopping by from the Friday linkys. Your closet looks amazing! I absolutely love the velvet hangers!

  5. Stopping by from the link up - I did the same thing with our closet a few months ago and it was life changing. I have to agree, Prime is the absolute best, thanks to it I barely left my house for Christmas shopping!

  6. oooo your closet looks fab! I need to do that. While on maternity leave I did manage to clear out the crappy metal hangers which helped a little but your uniform velvet hangers make it all look so neat and together. Perhaps that'll be a winter month project since Jan-Feb are always pretty low key months for us! Have a great weekend!
