Weekend recap & Christmas movies

Happy Monday to you! I hope you had a great weekend!

Ours consisted of lots of online Christmas shopping, a fun night out with friends and a Home Alone movie marathon.
Loved this intimate venue!

I also purchased a new pair of glasses! I wear contacts daily, but love being able to give my eyes a break.

I've been loving our Christmas movie weekends lately. We didn't get a tree in Dublin, since we are headed home next week (yay!), so I've been counting on the Elf and Home Alone to get me in the festive spirit until then.

What are your favorite Christmas movies?? We may need to add a couple more to the list!

And lastly, I finally got our Copenhagen photos gathered up and will have a recap for you on Wednesday!

Looks like you had a great weekend!!! Love Actually and The Holiday are two of my favorites!! Is it weird that I don't wear contacts, but have always wanted to wear glasses?!

Looks like you had a super fun weekend! A Home Alone movie marathon sounds perfect right about now! It's freezing outside and a holiday movie marathon would be the perfect way to spend the day <3

Oh my gosh, how could I forget about Home Alone?? I totally need to watch that now! Personally, it isn't Christmas for me until I've watched Christmas Vacation and Love, Actually. :)

Christmas movie marathons are the best. I just watched Love Actually this weekend and Home Alone is one of my all time favorites!
