Thanksgiving Weekend Recap

What a crazy, but fun few days it has been! I have been going, going, going non-stop since last Wednesday afternoon! It doesn't look like life will slow down any time soon, but I'm ok with that! I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday as much as I did. Mine was spent baking, eating, and relaxing with family and friends! I was thrilled that my Pumpkin Spice Cake turned out as well as it did last year! Needless to say it was gone in one day.

On Friday I steered clear from any and all shopping....except for one big purchase! We bought my new bed for my apartment! This was my first time purchasing a new mattress, and let me tell y'all, it was really hard to decide! But I think I made a great decision and can't wait to it to be delivered in two days. Afterwards Brian and I were Charlotte bound for the Bobcats game and some fun with friends!

We ended up being on the seventh row, so it was definitely a fun game! Afterwards we went out in Charlotte with new and old friends. Saturday was spent being a little lazy, grabbing dinner with our group of friends, and drinking wine with Bre (and celebrating her engagement....hello, that's something to drink to!!)

After such a fun-filled weekend I am ready to relax! But, I have more exciting things coming up! I get the keys to my very own "big girl" apartment today! I have been packing and anticipating this moment for a while. So, if I'm behind on blogging, you'll understand why.....and send out an SOS for me because I may very well be drowned in clothes, shoes, blankets, and kitchen stuff! :)


Blog Input Needed!

I have been blogging for a while now at Life with Emily. Over the years my blog has evolved and changed in many ways. It is so funny to look back on old posts and see what I thought was important to blog about (and some of the stuff really just makes me laugh...or cry!!) While I am not the biggest fan of change, I know that it is sometimes needed in order to find your niche.
My blog went from strictly lifestyle posts, to strictly product and fashion related posts, and now I would like to think I have a good mixture of lifestyle and fun posts. But, I need your help!
This is where you wonderful readers come in!! My blog is used to not only keep a journal of sorts about my life, but also to make blog friends and engage with my readers!
So I want to know your thoughts! I would love it if you could fill out this short survey to help me out! :-)
Thank you!


Rockin' the Red

When it comes to cold weather I am all about comfort, while still looking put together. I'm talking big comfy sweaters, riding boots, ponte pants, cords, the works! If I have to be shaking in my boots I want to at least look cute! Lately I have had the best luck with finding good, comfortable sweaters! While in Las Vegas last week I hit the H&M jack pot. It was the 3-story H&M in Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace....talk about fashion heaven. Oh, and did I mention knits and sweaters were buy one get one free??? Well that's where I found this little gem.

Meet my perfect red sweater.

I had been waiting so impatiently (and secretly praying) for cold weather so I could break out this oversized sweater! The weather gods answered my prayers this week when temperatures dropped into the 40s! woohoo! I got so many compliments when I wore this outfit. I loved the fact that it was ridiculously simple and comfortable!
