bring on the holidays!


...and the holiday parties begin! Last night we had our company holiday party which never fails to entertain ;)


Here's my sis/adorable date. We revamped a couple of old dresses to wear to the festivities. Amazing how with a little bit of determination and thriftiness - the old becomes new! But not without a little dash of the red lips...


i am uber excited for snow to get here. the holidays just aren't complete without that white blanketing the ground! 


here's what i love about the holiday season...


#1 - family time. christmas tree hunting is always a highlight. i still make the trek up north to join the search for the perfect tree for my parent's living room. it's always a battle between short/thin (my mom's preference) and tall/fat (us girls and my dad). we'll see who wins this year!



here's my sis mikelle "tree hunting" 3 years ago. i laughed every time i see this...


family time includes time spent around the piano, singing christmas hymns. gotta love a musical family! "what child is this" is a personal fav of mine...


#2 - snow. cold, yes. but so beautiful! make for some cozy moments indoors snuggled up with some hot coco...and don't forget the marshmallows!


#3 - holiday films. "white christmas" and "it's a wonderful life" are a must! bing crosby's voice...sigh...

...speaking of counting your blessings, thanksgiving is almost upon us! have a blessed time of food, family and giving thanks!
