This Friday, Scott’s squadron had their Christmas party. I love Christmas parties because it’s the perfect excuse to dress up the whole family. Here’s what Aspen and I wore:
It’s always so hard finding something that is work party appropriate. Every year I struggle to find something that’s not scandelous, but also doesn’t make me look Amish. This year, I was very pleased to find this flowy skirt to pair with a nice flannel, which also allowed Scott and I to match, and have Aspen coordinate with us.

There are only a few occasions throughout the year that it is 100% justified to splurge on your looks. Your spouses squadron’s Christmas party is one of them.
Last year I was so pregnant and large, that I refused to even dress up for the party. So this year I had to make up for it. This was also my first time having a professional do my hair and makeup (and it is SO worth it you guys!). Thanks to Morgan Nichols I felt like a princess.
The night was an over all success. Aspen was happily content in the childcare room for 3 hours, giving Scott and I much needed time to ourselves. We had so much fun visiting with our friends, drinking old fashioned coctails, and eating delicious food. The games played were absolutely hilarious, and although we didn’t win anything this year, the prizes were ON POINT (thanks to my husband, who was on the committee). I seriously love this time of year, and the fun events it brings to us.
