Weekend Wrap-Up-December Edition

I started to title this post, “Holly Jolly Weekend”, but then decided this weekend wasn’t as festive as next weekend should be-so I’m saving it.  You just wait for the Holly Jolly Weekend Wrap-Up coming your way next week.  πŸ˜‰

If you live in Austin, Texas, or Norman, Oklahoma, or are just big TX, OU, or Big 12 fans in general, then you know there was a BIG game played in Dallas over the weekend.  Tab was selected to officiate that game.  {WAHOO!}  The crew stayed at the Omni-it was so pretty and all decked out for Christmas.  I wish I would have taken more pictures to show you.  I drove down after school pick up on Friday to meet up and go to dinner with everyone.  We were treated to a yummy dinner at Perry’s Steakhouse, where I decided right then and there if they fried anything in whatever they’d fried that asparagus in, I would eat it.  It’s going to be so tough eating a regular ole piece of asparagus now.  #setthebaronasparaguswaytoohigh

I wore my sequin top from the Gibson line…even though it’s hard to see, paired it with some velour pants I’ve had for years {this is the brand I have}and always pull out during the holidays and my leather jacket.

Speaking of the Gibson holiday Glam line, I have to take a quick break to discuss, MY GIRL, SHEAFFER, HAS A TOP NAMED AFTER HER ON THE NORDSTROM WEBSITE!  This was how I styled my “Sheaffer” for a dinner out…with dark denim skinny jeans, a leopard belt, and some cognac booties.  I ordered both a small and a medium because I wasn’t sure how it’d fit.  The small is perfect with a front tuck.

I’m seriously SO SO happy, proud, and excited for this girl….basically, I’ve got all the “mom feels” right now for Sheaffer.  Ha!  Sheaffer….so so proud of you, friend!  XO

One more look at the “Sheaffer” up close…super cute lace detailing.  The top also comes in white and black.  I love the fact you can dress it up or dress it down.  If you have any Christmas parties coming up, New Year’s Eve events, or a fun night out…grab this top!

The view from Tab’s hotel room was amazing!  But a dance recital the next day was calling my name so back to McKinney I went.  πŸ™‚

This was Tab on Saturday.  

And I was with my favorite dancer at her Christmas dance recital.

The boys went to the game with some friends so I had the girlies solo.

The cutest group of dancers.

These girls did such a good job!

Her favorite thing about the day?  Tab and the boys made it back to watch her second performance!

Such a great performance!

My sweater is HERE.

Lots of holidays parties and fun nights out this week!  And we’re READY!  Happy Monday, Everyone!

    I used an entire Crest a white Strips pack just like the box says exactly years ago. Now I just have to use a couple strips here and there like every couple months and it evens to keep them looking white. Hope this helps! πŸ™‚

    I tried to comment on my phone and clearly, my fingers were just too big to make sense this morning?! ha! Years ago, I did the Crest White Strips' treatment exactly like the box says. Now, I just use a couple strips here and there when I feel like they need a little refreshing. Hope this helps and makes more sense than my comment above! ha!

    Ha! I knew that was Tab! We drove up from Austin for the game. I told my husband that I thought it was Tab and that I follow you on Instagram and read your blog. His response "message his wife and see if we could get some better calls". What a great game! Hook em!

    My husband and I were watching the game on TV this weekend and during the game I shouted "Hey! That's Tab Slaughter!!" My husband was so confused on how I knew one of the officials!! I said "well…I don't really KNOW know him. I read his wife's blog." So it just feels like it!! haha. Thanks for making us all feel like family!

    Ahh…we could be twinkies…I wore the same red top with black pants for an event last week! I considered a tuck but I've had way too many functions full of food lately lol.

    So fun to see your hubs at the game (even if it was just on the field)! May not have been the outcome I wanted but always a huge Slaughter fan!

    So very cool that he was tabbed for the Big 12 Championship Game. Does he know if he is working the little game that will be played in my neck of the woods on Jan.7th (The National Title Game)?
