My Weekend in Pictures

...and what a wonderful weekend it was! Last minute shopping and prepping the house for the holidays on Friday, family time on Saturday, and a very lazy Sunday, spent on the couch watching movies with Esposito. We were both fighting a cold all weekend (and still are) but we made the best of it anyway.  If you follow me on Instagram (@wendisiya) then you may have seen most of these already.  If not, here's a recap of my weekend in pictures.
 Uncharacteristically warm weather for December in Jersey prompted us to go out for ice cream on Thursday night.

Though I didn't host any Christmas festivities at my house this year, I caught the Martha Stewart bug on Friday evening and spent it cooking and cleaning.  Lemon and Rosemary Roasted Chicken and Potatoes and Baked Parmesan Tomatoes recipes courtesy of Pinterest.

I lost Esposito's watch maybe a year ago when he gave it to me to take it to the jewelers for a battery change.  I have no idea where it's been for the past year, but we found it under the couch on Friday night (and we often move the couches to dust under them so there is no way it was there all along!)
 A festive red and sparkly accent manicure for the holidays.
 My Christmas Eve outfit - winter white and sparkly shoes.  Esposito and I exchanged our main gifts early so I wore my new monogram necklace as well!  And yes, on Friday I went out and found my mom, sisters and I matching beige tops with gold sparkles to continue our dressing alike tradition!

Our main gifts to each other this year - I bought Esposito a Michael Kors rose gold watch with black band, and he bought me a monogram necklace. 
 My Christmas gifts so far.

A little glam for Christmas Day - wearing my new faux fur vest from Esposito, a festive red sweater, and my new monogram necklace.

You can find me and other bloggers over at a {little} dash of ash's instagram link party today.  How was your weekend?
