Weekend Reads: Last weekend before Christmas!
Happy weekend before Christmas!! I just popped by the J Crew Factory store and grabbed some stocking stuffers for the fam. Are you done with shopping yet?! My trip to Austin last weekend was SO MUCH FUN. More to come on that, but I ate tacos, queso, drank coffee, mixed drinks, beer, wine, all of the drinks. I laughed and giggled and shopped and had a seriously wonderful time catching up with friends and making new ones. I highly recommend a trip to Austin, or just a trip to reconnect with your friends. It will make you happy. Here are some reads for the week:
