Friday No. 14

1. I saw this canvas from Lindsey Letters on Instagram earlier this week and am swooning. Her work is beautiful! I would love to add this to our collection of Christmas decorations.

2. I saw this scarf in my virtual travels and am hoping to scoop it up for winter!

3. We had such a fun date night last weekend, including a spicy combo from Chik-fil-a with lemonade and seeing a Christmas movie in theaters (Daddy’s Home 2, so funny!).

4. With winter just around the corner, I want to make this healthy pumpkin bread this weekend to squeeze more fall out of November!

5. We got our first red cups of the season this week during their buy one get one free promotion! Egg nog lattes all the way y’all.

What are y’all up to this weekend? Share in the comments below!

Financial Peace and an Exciting Life Update!

Good morning, friends! It’s a little after 7 and the sunrise is beautiful this morning. I’m cozied up with my favorite quilt and my warm cup of coffee and this Christmas playlist in the background. Life has just been so sweet lately.

Yesterday was such a good day. I finally changed my last name to Shattuck at the DMV, bank, and leasing office for our apartment (woohoo!). I’ve also begun transitioning my email to my new last name slowly but surely! After I got home from the name change, I got moving on a broken light fixture in our bathroom that we have patiently tolerated since summer. Then I updated our home filing system and put away random papers that had yet to be properly filed. Y’all, productivity came in heaps yesterday!

Our Wedding Video

Oh happy day, friends! Today marks the first snow of the season and it looks so pretty outside! And – even more exciting- this weekend I received our wedding highlight video! Our sweet friend Christy MacGilvary gave us the sweetest gift for our wedding by filming our day and creating this video for us. She has served on the production team at our church for a few years now and we trusted her to capture our ceremony, but she went above in beyond to create a highlight video too! It is with much excitement and thankfulness that I share it with you today. She and my dear friend Joy quietly recorded snippets of our day to bless us with this gift that we will cherish forever. Enjoy!

Thank you so much Christy and Joy! We are so grateful for you and the way you are using this gift that God has given you!
