CHRISTMAS WEEK


it's time to put the blog on pause for a few days, while we celebrate the birth of our Savior with family, friends and loved ones alike!

it doesn't look like texas is going to have a white christmas, but it will be plenty cold!

we are going to cook, bake, drink and celebrate as a family this year- including a one-gift exchange amongst all of the lane family members on Christmas Eve. 

wishing you all a blessed, joyous, cozy, and meaningful Chirstmas!
xoxo - the lane

ps: this pictures is taken by SP at the ranch this morning.

love me some reasons to dress up. but nothing over the top and this is right up my alley! its dressy, cool and comfortable! which in my book should always be at the top of the list!
anthropologie is maybe one of my favorite stores. i could spend hours in one of their stores... so many pretty fabrics, trinkets, giftables and where you can find a full outfit for any occasion! 

i dont have too many holiday parties on the calendar this year, but if i did, this would be my go-to outfit!

**lucky you.... anthropologie is offering 20% off full priced jewelry today!**

BIRTHDAY RECAP

its hard to believe that my birthday has already come and gone. why is it that days we look forward to for so long pass by so quickly?
my golden birthday was this past weekend and it was blast! full of love, loved ones, laughter and memories made!

i enjoyed a delicious cup of coffee and breakfast with my mom and sister before picking up sp from the airport later in the morning. he flew in town for a long weekend of birthday celebrations !!
we headed straight to brunch with some dear friends!
from there, sp and i decided to enjoy the beautiful weather dallas was offering that day and took a good long walk around the arboretum - it was so beautiful, countless pumpkins everywhere!
momma lane hosted the most fabulous dinner party for my 'golden birthday'!
all i asked for was family style italian dinner and champagne with my favorite people- and of course she went above and beyond! from decorations, a true italian feast and family and friends with new memories that will go down in the birthday history books!!
 
after a fun filled weekend with family and friends, sp took me out on a birthday/anniversary date at what might be my new favorite restaurant in dallas - savor
with the park all light up for the holidays, it was so beautiful!
the staff, the food and even the deserts were outstanding- its a must if you are in dallas any time soon. 
we capped off the weekend with a glass of bubbles, of course, at lark in the park.
cheers to a really fun birthday with loved ones and lots of laughter!!
