Fancy for Santa – Kid’s Holiday Wear

meganwelker-Beijos-Outfits-51

We’ve said it before, dressing up our littles for the holidays is probably one of the things we get most excited for this season…

We love playing dress up with them and forcing them to take lots and lots and LOTS of photos ;)

That’s one of the things that makes the holiday season so fun, getting the chance to dress up and get fancy!  Even if we have to make them while they are kicking and screaming, ha!

Leah and Jacquelyn recently got their little ones together in their Holiday best to share some inspiration with you…

Whether it’s Christmas Day or Eve or even a visit to Mr. St. Nick himself, now is the time to get them in their cutest little numbers and we have you covered with so much style, Santa will surely approve!

Cocktails – Homemade Baileys

Homemade Baileys

My mom has been making this tasty holiday treat for as long as I can remember, and as a matter of fact she really didn’t want me to share the recipe… But I weaseled my way and got her to share her secrets ;)

We love to drink this on ice or mix it with coffee, yum!  It’s also something that makes for a lovely homemade gift, especially if it’s given in a pretty glass bottle like the one pictured.

Holiday Pajamas 2014 – Beijos Picks

meganwelker-BeijosXmasPJs-7 Some would say the most important outfit for the holidays is the one you would wear Christmas morning… Pajamas!!!

Now that all three of us have families we have the pleasure of seeing the holidays through our children’s eyes and to get them excited for Santa!!  This is Court’s first Christmas so of course I have been decking him out in all kinds of fun holiday gear!  I mean lets be honest, I think the parents may have just a little more fun than the kids even do with this whole holiday thing…

Our favorite buddy Megan Welker came over and shot Court and I in some of our holiday jammies, we have to look our best in case we run into Santa in the middle of the night, right?!

Also, I’m pretty sure Court has a crush on Megan… Her new fiancé better watch out!

meganwelker-BeijosXmasPJs-12 Court and I are both wearing PJ’s from J Crew, you can find them here and here

Court’s were a gift from his Godmother, fellow Beijos Lady Leah Carriger…

Cocktails – Cranberry Margarita

Cranberry Margarita

Let’s face it, cocktails play a big part of the holiday season, and we aren’t complaining about that one bit!  Whether you are hosting a party or just need to indulge on your own to relax during this busy time, sometimes you just need a drink!

It’s easy to go with the usual egg nog, or even a glass of wine, but if you are up for trying something fun yet festive at your next soiree, try this for a spin!  My family has a tradition of making cranberry margaritas for both Thanksgiving and Christmas (hey, we like to have a little fun, alright?) so I thought I would share the recipe!
