My So-Called Instagram Life (Christmas 13 Edition)

I can't believe it is practically 2014.  Where has the time gone?  I haven't been able to spend much time on this blog recently, but it hasn't been from a lack of desire.  Here is a recap of my holiday.  

We put our tree in a new location this year and got new, more colorful lights.  I really like the way it turned out.  

I participated in the Fat Mum Slim Secret Santa gift exchange this year.  I had a lot of fun putting together a package for my new Aussie friend.

I also really enjoyed receiving gifts from my Aussie secret Santa (thank you, Amara).  

My sweet husband surprised me with a Benefit advent calendar, which had a mini-product in it for each day leading up to Christmas.  It was really fun to discover what each square had in it each day.  I am now obsessed with the Coralista blush.    

We did a crab feed on Christmas Eve.  

My sweet sister-in-law gave me this sweet piece of art with a light up gnome in it.  
P.S.  I have decided that I am keeping him out all year, but he needs a name.  Any suggestions? 

Stocking stuffers for my 4-legged children.

Harriet loved her new sweater and Chewie stuffed animal

Petunia looked pretty in her new sweater dress.  Yes, I officially buy clothing for my dogs now.  

Some of my friends were lucky enough to get their gifts wrapped in this sweet wrapping paper I discovered at the dollar store.

We found Christmas Yoda for our front yard.

Two sweet girls chin-snuggling me in front of the tree made my day.

I buy a new Starbucks ornament every year, and this one I was able to decorate myself.

How cute are these lamb slippers from Bath & BodyWorks?

My husband slipped this cutie into my stocking.  He cracks me up.

I hope you all had a very happy holiday, whatever you celebrate.  I look forward 2014, and the promise of a fresh start that the new year always brings with it.  Happy new year to all!

Hi, I'm Erin. I am living back on the east coast after 15 years out west. Currently readjusting to humidity and mosquitos. I love to take pictures and read fashion magazines.... and to talk about nothing in particular (ok, and my dogs).
