Ten on Tuesday [No.36]

Some links below are affiliate links-thank you for using these links to help support Southern & Style at no additional cost to you!
Now that December is finally here, can I just say that I am thrilled & totally in the Christmas spirit?!
This past week was a busy week and this week is going to be/has been busy too but it's worth it for all  the joy and excitement that comes with the season.
Also, I just want to address the fact that there was no Saturday post up...I had a post scheduled & had left the house before my 6:30 posting time, so I just assumed it went up...but blogger flaked on me and it didn't post & by the time I got home that evening it was too late to post it so you'll get that one this week!

Last Thursday I made a little trip to Birmingham to spend the afternoon with my sister doing all kinds of fun stuff.
We met at the Summit & browsed through Belk, Lilly, Anthropologie, and Paper Source...then we were starving so we headed to the new Bar Taco & y' was so yummy.
We split the chips & guac and then I had a lunch combo of a chicken taco, pork taco, and chorizo taco with chicken soup (& Mexican street corn on the side too!)
It was basically my favorite meal ever.

After that we headed to Mountain Brook Creamery for a quick and delicious ice cream, then after a quick stop by Trader Joe's I headed back home!

Have you seen these deodorizing hairbrush liners?!
Not only do I think they would be amazing for keeping your hair fresh, I think they would be a game-changer for keeping your hairbrush clean.

On Sunday afternoon I had a lazy day & spent it working on blog posts and watching maybe one of the best Hallmark movies I've seen in a long time-The Christmas Train.
If it shows again, you definitely need to watch it-it has Brad Paisley's wife, Kimberly in it & I just love her!

 On Thursday night when I got back from the 'Ham, my mom & other sister came over and we headed back to my little Junior College town to see their Christmas musical.
I wore these shoes and was totally obsessed. They were warm & comfortable & cute!
 My former school always puts on an amazing show & of course I had to come see my favorite Mary (Callen-on the right below-has been one of my favorite people since she was a little girl, so it was fun to see her perform!) and her cousin Madison is also one of the little girls I grew up loving!

Did you catch my surprise Monday post?
I linked up with Sarah, Victoria, and Emily to share my Christmas wish list.
I also really need to add this cozy robe to my list as well because I wish I had it on right about now!

I made this Green Chili Chicken Bake last week & it was a winning recipe-quick & easy!
We ate it with Spanish rice this time, but I think next time we would eat it in burritos-it's yummy either way.

I smelled a sample of this perfume in the Holiday issue of Marie Claire & now it's definitely been added to my wish list-it smells so good! 

So on Friday I'm hosting a family Christmas gathering & so when I was planning out this week's schedule to get the house prepped, I turned to no other than Better Homes & Gardens to help me whip the house into shape.
Their 7-Day Cleaning Plan is perfect for any gathering that you're having at home & so I'm going to combine a few days and get my house holiday ready 🎄

Saturday I performed the ultimate act of selfless love...I woke up at 5 AM to go to Livingston, AL (three hours away from where we live...on the opposite side of Alabama, almost in Mississippi) to attend a bull sale with my husband and his parents.
It really was enjoyable to spend time with him & plus he treated me to Dreamland ribs & banana pudding on the way home 😋

Erica shared 10 Ways to Choose Joy this Christmas season & it's totally spot on...I especially love the idea of sharing season's greetings with everyone-it doesn't happen all year that you can share "Merry Christmas!" as you open the door for someone else!

I hope y'all enjoyed this week's little roundup, let me know below what you're up to this week-any last minute additions to your Christmas wish list?

Until next time. . .

  8. It sounds like you've had a really great week! I've never known anyone who has gone to a bull sale. My boyfriend isn't into bulls, but if he was, he would definitely have to treat me to a good sale if I got up early to attend something like that. How interesting!

  10. Those tacos look amazing!! I'm glad you had a good week and I'm sorry your saturday post flaked!! I've had trouble with Wordpress not posting my scheduled posts before and it's the most frustrating thing in the world!
