Weekending: Almost Christmas!

Finally, a Monday I can deal with! Just a few days of work then it's a five day weekend! I spent most of Saturday organizing Aida's things. I wanted to get an idea of what we have and what we need--what we have is a bajillion pairs of socks and bibs; what we need are more burp cloths! The rest of the day was very low key. We ate dinner, made Millie wear a Christmas sweater, watched Homeland, then went to bed by 9:30pm. That's my kind of Saturday!

Lately, we seem to be making Sunday Funday a habit, and I am okay with that! We had originally planned to drive to Middleburg, a quaint, little town in the middle of horse country, but at the last minute we headed for the city. This is basically the only time of the week you'll find me willing to drive into DC--there was absolutely no traffic, and we easily found street parking close to Firefly, our brunch pick.

Firefly was recommended to us by some friends, and as you can see above, it did not disappoint. I have big plans to return one more time before Aida arrives.

Afterwards, my photographer took some pictures for a fun outfit post you'll be seeing later this week. Next, we made another spontaneous decision to go by Baked and Wired in Georgetown. We've heard so many good things about this place, and we figured there's no time like the present! I may regret this when I get weighed at my next appointment, but a chipwhich is always worth it!

We ended the day with some window shopping and real shopping at the mall--somebody who has yet to make her grand entrance into this world got her very first Lilly outfit!

Speaking of shopping, if any of you last minute shoppers out there need help, take a gander at a few of these gift guides!

- Under $50 
- For the Men
- Dining and Entertaining
- For the Ladies
- For the Puppies! 

You might have to pay extra for shipping, but that is the price of being a procrastinator! Amazon is also great because they have a bajillion gift cards to choose from. Lastly, many of the stores that are featured in the gift guide have in-store pickup options--so if you're close, you can check that out and avoid paying more for shipping than your actual gift!

Don't worry, I didn't forget about #JAMPackedHoliday! I've got three songs for you today to catch up from the weekend. "From Afar," by Vance Joy, because he could sing to me all day long; "Mountain at my Gates," by Foals and "Love Me" by the 1975 because Matt suggested them and I needed help because I'm currently fighting off a food coma.
