This unfortunately will always live in my memory as the Christmas party that never happened. Well, it happened alright. It happened without me, and I'm happy to report that I got to see it live in action via my best friend's snapchat Saturday night. So I was there in spirit! All the while, sitting on my couch with my dog and husband, nursing a sore throat that has now morphed into a full fledged cold, possibly sinus infection. This season has been rough on my body. But anyway, back to the party. My best friend loves to entertain, and her attention to detail makes her a wonderful hostess. I was looking forward to a fun celebration. I even got my hair done that afternoon, but as soon as I got home from taking these photos, I plopped onto my bed and just couldn't muster up the energy to make it back out. What a downer. I've had great (non-static) curls ever since, and they have been wasted on lying around in sweats, a box of kleenex at my side. We always seem to come down with something at the worst times, don't we? Although I guess there's never a good time to get sick. I'm hoping that I can redeem myself this weekend, when I actually do go to another party. I can't waste another opportunity to get dolled up.

How was your weekend? Are you guys staying healthy this season?


  1. You poor thing! I'm so sorry you had to miss Katie's party (it did look fun on Snapchat! LOL! She does a great job of decorating). And your outfit is so perfect - hopefully you'll get to put it to good use this weekend. Get well soon, Noelle!

    1. Thank you Gina! I'll see you in a couple weeks ;)

  2. I hate missing a fun party but you did good by listening to your body. I'm trying my hardest to stay healthy, I have too much to do and I refuse to be sick in Cali.


    1. Yes, although I was scared of missing out on fun, I don't regret listening to my body. Stay healthy because I can't wait to meet you! So excited!

  3. I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well and had to miss the party! This is a great outfit. Maybe Nate can take you on a fun date. ;) I hate I am late to stop by! I try to keep up with Bloglovin' to see when you post, but I missed it.
