First and foremost, Happy 30th Birthday to my handsome husband! I'm so thankful for you and am so excited to spend your big 3-0 in New York City! 

After Thanksgiving, I start my Christmas movie binge. Over the weekend, I watched "The Family Stone," and I remembered why I absolutely love that movie! I cry every. single. time. You have to add this to your Christmas movie-watching list! 

Did any of y'all score any Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals? We don't really Black Friday shop, but if we do, it's always online! I can't bear the mass chaos in the stores; I'd prefer to shop at home in my jammies. :) That said, we did find some electronics for my Dad's Christmas present and my brother's college graduation gift. And I found a couple things for myself at Old Navy for 60% off, thanks to Natalie's blog

This top that I can't wait to wear: 

One of my favorite beauty products ever is the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask. Mix this powder with some apple cider vinegar and put the paste on your face and literally feel your face pulsate. {No kidding!} Once you wash it off, you'll see your pores visibly shrink and your face will look brighter. I try to use it once a month and I just love it! I've tried all sorts of brands of masks, including Glam Glow and Origins, and none of them impress me like this cheap $8 mask. 

Wednesday, I popped by my aunt's house for her Hurley House Store Hours and picked up some yummy treats for Brandon's birthday. I mean, look how amazing this all looks!? If you're in the DFW area, she hosts store hours every Wednesday from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. and has so many yummy homemade treats for sale, and it's different each week! 

Pictured here are her hot cocoa mix; marshmallows; salted brown butter rice krispie treats; sparkle sandwich cookies; chocolate chip cookies; granola; mixed nuts; sugared cranberries; sugar plum cupcakes; and complimentary hot chocolate!
