In Vs. Out {December}

Can y'all believe Christmas was yesterday?!
I hope each of you received whatever was on your wish list & that you had a comforting and fun Christmas day.

Today I'm going to do a In Vs. Out post and link-up with Alison at Because I Said So!


The fact that I'm casually obsessed with all of my Christmas gifts
My husband, my in-laws, and my family all were fantastic gift-givers this year. 
And more than that, I got to see everyone on Christmas day and that was the sweetest gift of them all.

Having a very {Married} Christmas
I love being married to Chris, each day is a new adventure.
We don't always see eye-to-eye (including on Christmas), but we always love each other.
That was so evident on Christmas and every day.

Picking out a perfect gift for each person that's on my list is something that I so enjoy doing.
This year, Chris' big gift was an Old Town Saranac Canoe and since I couldn't very well wrap that and stick it under our tree, it stayed at my parents house.
I created a scavenger hunt (complete with cheesy poems, wrapped in boxes as clues) that he opened along our way there.
Needless to say, he absolutely loved it and it made me SO happy.
I can't wait for  days floating on the river this spring.


Hot Weather
Christmas just isn't the same when the weather is as hot and humid (and SO wet) as it was yesterday.
I couldn't even bundle up in the super cute and cozy cardigan that my MOL picked up for me from LOFT.

Christmas Break Coming to an End
As glad as I was that Christmas was here, I didn't want it to be over!
This is my last break of my college career and when I go back to "class" on the 4th of Jan. it will actually be teacher inservice at the school I'll be doing my student teaching at!
It's exciting, but also kind of sad at the same time.

Broken Phone Case
This may seem like a small thing, but the fact that my LifeProof case is practically disintegrating is killing me.
It does make me want to upgrade from my 5C to a 6 though!

I hope y'all enjoyed this little roundup and once again-I hope you had the merriest Christmas of them all!

Tell me below what's in and out for you lately :)

Until next time. . . 



  1. Giving is always in! I love your sweet thoughts on a married Christmas - what an amazing gift for your man!!

  4. I am having a love/hate with the warm weather right now! Haha. Warm weather is so much easier on my body than cold weather, but it makes dressing professionally so much more difficult. Do I dress for the weather or for the season?! Haha
