weekend recap.

One final Christmas-y weekend before heading to Cincy for Christmas + Cancun with Richard’s fam for New Years. Friday we saw Star Wars – it was great. Richard was the happiest man alive.

We went to Soho on Saturday afternoon post Bar Method / workout + Turning Point {our favorite breakfast spot in Hoboken}.

I wore this faux fur jacket from Express – it’s 50% off HERE & available in all sizes. It’s adorable and perfect for the Winter. Richard said I looked like a snowman. BOYS.


^These TOMS Wedge Boots are awesome. This dark grey color is 20% off here.



We decided not to do big gifts this year because we are saving up for a big trip in May to celebrate Richard becoming a Doctor {hard to believe it’s only a few months away until he’s Dr. Hajjar 😀 } BUT we decided to do a mini gift exchange Saturday.



We are really into TopChef {where all the cooking challenges are timed} so we decided to give each other each 1 hour in Soho to find a gift for each other with a $50 limit.

Richard got me a beautiful top from Kit & Ace & I got him a Homemade Gin Kit from Birchbox. It was honestly so much fun & I think may need to become a tradition.

We decided to meet after our hour at the Little Cupcake Bakeshop because my mom was RAVING about their gingerbread men. She was 100% right.



Also, Jessica Biel has been seen leaving here with a cake in hand {here}. I was obviously was on the outlook for celebs & we actually saw Karlie Kloss walk by. She is gorg + so tall.




^They are also known for their chocolate cake so we had to try a slice of that as well. It reminded us of Brucey eating the chocolate cake in Matilda.



Check out my other NYC photos in this post from Friday – the Saks windows are stunning. Holiday spirit in FULL swing 🙂 Have a great week! xx

PS – did you see Kate’s recent family photo? Just LOVE this adorableness. Yes, Kate Middleton. My best friend, or so I like to think.
