I still can’t believe Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is less than a month away now! There’s so many fun holiday things around the city that I’m excited to do with Kennedy this year. Going to get hot cocoa at the Christkindlmarket, taking her to see Santa, and the Lincoln Park zoo lights are at the top of the list. After living in the city a few years now, I know that a warm hat and gloves are a must, especially walking around in the evenings after the sun goes down. I’ve been on the hunt for some matching beanies for Kennedy and I. These hats from Amazon are so cute and I couldn’t believe how inexpensive the set is! I featured some pictures of us in the black ones, but also may have ordered them in a few other colors because I liked them so much 🙂
Below I put together some of our other favorite matching options from various sites.
Even though, I feel like we barely had a fall here in Chicago, one day last week when it wasn’t super cold I took Kennedy to the park. All the colors on the tress were so pretty. Kennedy had so much fun watching the squirrels (which she called doggies, lol). She was obsessed with playing in the leaves, she would just contunuiously pick them up then throw then down. When it was time to go, she cried because she didn’t want to stop playing in the leaves.
I can’t get enough of oversized sweaters right now. Both of our sweaters here are from last winter, but below I linked some similar ones and listed a bunch of our favorites!
Her actual birthday was over a week ago now, but I wanted to share some pics and details from Kennedy’s birthday party. I had so much fun planning and decorating.
From the moment we found out I was pregnant with a girl, I couldn’t wait to throw a super pink birthday party. Kennedy’s absolute favorite food are pickles, its pretty funny how obsessed she is with them. So a few months ago, Russell and I joked we should do a pickle theme birthday party, and the more I thought about it, I realized it would be super cute to combine the 2 ideas and have Princess and Pickles birthday!
