Friday: Last One Before Christmas

Happy, Happy Friday! 

Brandon has been traveling since Sunday on his last business trip of the year, and it's been just Walker and me this week. Thank goodness he's on his way home as we speak. {Errr, type? Read?} Because I'm over here like: 

Some of y'all have already seen it, but I wanted to link up with Lyndsey for her second annual Christmas Card Blog Link-up Party to share our 2015 Christmas card! I love the way they turned out this year, and we're so excited to meet baby #2 {and find out if it's a boy or a girl on New Year's Eve}! Special thanks to my sweet friend Liz for the photos and Brown Paper Studios for the design. 

As we were going through our DVR that's filled with recorded Christmas movies over the weekend, Brandon said to me, "I've never even seen 'Love Actually.'" I think my mouth hit the floor! I said, "Who has never seen this movie?! Okay, we're watching it." When we were finished, he goes, "Wow, that was actually really good!" Please tell me this is in your Christmas movie line-up, too! 

I have been obsessed with this shirt from Old Navy this fall/winter. {No lie when I say that half of my wardrobe has come from Old Navy since this summer. They're really hitting it out of the park lately!} I like this shirt because not only is it the perfect tunic top for a 4.5-months pregnant gal, but it is cute, functional, and I can dress it down with leggings or up with cute jeans and booties. {And no, this isn't a sponsored post. I'm just super obsessed with them lately. Ha!} 

And I have told y'all about Ebates before, but seriously, y'all have to sign up for it. I'm getting back more than $100 just by using them for all my Christmas shopping. I used to roll my eyes at the whole concept of it, but it takes two seconds to visit before you go online shopping, type in the store you're wanting to visit and then click on it to get cash back on your purchase! {I like to tell myself I'm saving money. Ha!} If you need a referral link for Ebates, just click here!

I looked in Walker's closet earlier this week and realized I completely forgot to buy him something to wear on Christmas! #momfail

However, Zulily to the rescue! I just love boys in sweet little longalls {much to Brandon's chagrin}, and this sweet one was too cute to pass up: 

I know I only have a short window before he starts telling me he wants to wear character T-shirts and light-up shoes, so I have to get these sweet little outfits in while I can! Ha! 

I hope y'all have a very Merry Christmas!
