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!
