and if you are still looking for a unique and beautiful gift for a lucky lady?

check out two sisters {love them both} in charlotte who create handmade, organic, natural jewelry - they are hosting a 12 days of christmas sale on instagram 
go check them out: twine and twig style 
 … despite the busy days of teaching, packing, shopping, blogging, working out, cleaning, planning … 
i've loved so much about this week
i tried to take in the moments and just enjoy the beautiful season
like treating myself to the first mani i have had in weeks tonight
bright red shellac nails for the season
and being inspired by my students as we explore poetry
i have been so blown away by the depth and powerfulness of their poems/analysis
it's been amazing to experience. 
… 
in addition, sunday night i surprised mr. moanco with a 'mini date' 
we like to do this often for one another
 i had seven cards {similar to a scavenger hunt} 
as we enjoyed some quality time together
more on where we went/photos coming soon…
...
last night we went to pinky's westside grill near uptown charlotte
 with a table full of friends to celebrate a special birthday
my dear friend, kate, turned 30
lots of great laughs 
along with ordering the ding dong chicken 
a grilled chicken sandwich with asian spicy slaw and chunky peanut butter
so amazing.
a pink christmas tree at pinky's!
yesterday was also a very special day because my best friend in charlotte, anna, and her husband oliver
welcomed a healthy and precious baby boy, evan oliver 
tonight i went to the hospital to meet him 
and fell head over heels in love with this little love muffin
he's so cute.
 i quickly put this together {in about ten min} before school today to introduce evan to our 8th graders; our newest wildcat!
 they loved it and were so excited… 
lots of 'awwwwws…' 'he's so cute!!!!' 'i love his name!" 
congrats travieso and byrd families 
two of the best i know. 
baby it's cold outside
{how cute is the towel from anthropologie-
 a housewarming gift from my sister-in-law, tricia- love.}
so i am spending the night baking 
a pumpkin/toffee/peanut butter cake
for a christmas party tomorrow night
recipe coming soon
it's delicious and super easy! 
perfect for a holiday gathering. 
no lie… 'baby it's cold outside' just came on pandora!
...
and on that note- time to relax for the evening! 
another crazy weekend ahead
loving every minute of this month though 

what are you loving most about this christmas season?

  2. I love that gift guide for him--my husband is one of the hardest people to shop for! I've heard of the two sisters shop in Charlotte, but I don't think I've ever been. I just love those ornaments!

    1. Thank you so much… if he doesn't have a jambox and loves music- I recommend! Although expensive- my husband LoVes his- so much. And Twine and Twig doesn't have a shop in Charlotte but they have an online shop and some boutiques sell their beautiful jewelry. :) And I know- LOVE the ornaments!!! xo
