Rise & Shine

nullnullnullPhotobucketPhotobucket


Happy Monday, lovelies! And welcome to a brand new week. How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?

Mine was the perfect mix of fun, I attended two birthday celebrations, relaxation & productiveness. I finally finished all of the holiday decorating and now the apartment is looking so festive. Just how I like it :) And the weather here in NYC was perfect. So warm and sunny. I even ate breakfast outside yesterday. Gotta be grateful for days like that in December.

I just love weekends like that. I feel totally content and ready to start the week.

Hope you all had a wonderful one!

xoxo

That sounds like heaven...and sounds like you're feeling better!!

This was a busy weekend with a big holiday party, a children's holiday party and getting our tree.

The next 2 weeks are going to be crazy, so I need some time to just soak it up!

Happy Monday, Dawn.

beautiful! Love the all white bed! have a lovely week Dawn xo

classiq said...

The weather has been so warm here too. But I'm not too happy about it because whenever that happens we have the surprise of snow in March or something like that. I much prefer a white Christmas. :) Wishing you a fabulous week, Dawn! xoxo

Vanessa@Luxuria said...

Mine was similar to yours Sweets. This Christmas will be my 1st in Spain after living here 11 years. So Hubs and I spent the weekend decorating our home; my Michael Bublé Christmas CD is playing and my Dyptique Christmas candles are burning as I type. Wish you could pop over for some egg-nog ;-)

Elle Sees said...

Mine was great but too fast! Glad you had the right mixmof fun and relaxation.

Liz {Sequins And Stripes} said...

Such a refreshing post for a Monday! The temps are crazy warm in the Midwest, too! Except 27 is the high for Friday - yikes.

Alexa said...

Oh it sounds like the perfect weekend, Dawn. Ours was nice too, got some Christmas shopping done. Now the new week begins....le sigh.

LatteLisa said...

Are you kidding me with that gorgeous white bedroom. Perfect!

And yes, this weather is unbelievable. It wasn't sunny over here but very mild and we had a little bit of rain which was fine by me. The home has been decorated and is in fact ready for Christmas, even the tree is up ;-) We got a bit of shopping to do but mainly we're done.

Maria @ Orchard Bloom said...

I can't believe how warm it has been. Almost doesn't feel like the holidays are coming.

I had a great weekend - executed my first wedding as a wedding coordinator, which was so fun to get to do for a dear friend. Everything went smoothly, looked stunning - especially the bride and groom, and people had a great time. Only problem, today I am exhausted (wedding was yesterday) at the office. Ha. Glad you had a good weekend!
Much love,
B

Mary Jo at TrustYourStyle said...

Sounds wonderful! There's nothing like sneaking a breakfast outside when it's supposed to be cold and isn't. I shocked the cat this morning when I joined her out on the lounge for morning coffee!

Rachel {Da Paura ♥} said...

Your weekend sounds like perfection! Ah I bet it's just lovely in New York when it's sunny...and even snowy too -- always have dreamed of being there during the holidays! These photos are so lovely and so inspiring for a Monday. I just love fluffy white bedding, and I want that lingerie in the 4th photo!

So jealous you were able to eat breakfast outside! It's been raining nonstop here... blah

City Girl Chicago said...

You are making me jealous with this talk of your beautiful weekend! I can't complain exactly, but I know what you mean about finding that perfect balance between productivity, fun, and relaxation, and last weekend was NOT that! Onwards and upwards, let's hope for this weekend for both of us shall we? :)

Tamra {walkswithBella} said...

I'm so thankful for the weather lately and being able to eat outside is perfection! SO happy you had a great weekend. We just finished our tree and I have a few more decorating things to do, and then we will be in full holiday mode. I love it!! have a great week darlin! xo

Emma said...
