Ugly Sweater Christmas Party

December 17, 2014
This past Saturday Ryan and I hosted our first Ugly Sweater Party! It was seriously SO MUCH FUN decorating the house, setting up the treat, sliders, and hot cocoa bar. We invited some of our awesome friends and had a complete blast. There were people coming in and out all night, and some party goers stayed till 2am!

I apologize for the lighting in all these pictures, still haven't got that whole indoor photography down yet! The table was filled to the brim with peppermint cookies, ham sliders, artichoke dip, cookies, and deliciousness galore!

This is one of my oldest friends Grant, and he is the 3rd Grossman brother I never had ;) He always makes a point to come to my parties even in the midst of his crazy pre-med school schedule, and it never fails to make me smile! 

Here's our ugly sweater prize winners! Jesse won "Still Pretty Ugly" with his pug sweater from H&M, Connor won "Ugliest Sweater" with his homemade vest (Ariel's matching look was also pretty epic) and Lo won "Just Too Pretty" with her feminine gold ornaments & tinsel :)

This is most of the group that came and enjoyed the party, we lucked out with pretty awesome friends! Have a holly jolly Christmas everyone! :)

Holiday Leopard

December 15, 2014

How are we only 10 days away from Christmas? This is INSANE! A lot of people from my ward (local church) are students so they'll be going to their hometowns for the holidays. Because of this, our ward did their Christmas program yesterday so I wore my Christmas dress! I am in love with anything leopard print, so when I saw this festive dress from Loft I knew I had to have it.

Plus these bow heels from Shoedazzle? I DIE. I loved them so much I ordered them in magenta too! They remind me of those heels that were really popular last year but way out of my budget. I'm a Shoedazzle VIP so I was able to snag these black ones as well as the magenta for $45 with free shipping. Hope all of your last minute holiday plans go smoothly and you BYU students rock your finals! :)

Turkey Day 2014

December 11, 2014
I'm just barely getting around to reporting on Thanksgiving, and Christmas is only 2 weeks away! Wow, does the time fly. My parents flew up to Provo to spend the holiday with Ryan, Jesse, and I. It was nice to have them be able to stay longer than just 2 days (like they have their past couple of trips), so we could really enjoy their company. 

I love that when we spend time with my family, we enjoy our time together but also make sure to take naps when needed. Soooooo relaxing. No pressure of having to be on the ball during the entire trip, nap time FTW! The day of Thanksgiving the boys went top play some turkey bowl football after they got the real turkey in the oven. We made a jalapeƱo turkey, coconut brown sugar yams, cream corn, asparagus, fruit salad, stuffing, picked up Kneaders rolls, and Ryan ordered homemade tamales from our local tamale lady. We were in a straight up FOOD COMA.

During our family trip to Montana we shared this AMAZING huckleberry pie. So as a surprise I ordered the pie for my family so it would be delivered the day before. It was just as delicious as we had remembered it :) Overall it was a relaxing and food-coma-filled holiday. Can't wait to do it all over again (maybe not as much food haha) for Christmas!
