Golden Christmas Eve

My vacation has come and gone and all my plans for writing went out the window. I spent part of the week in Rich's apartment with him and the other part at home with my mom. Unfortunately I came down with some kind of mutant virus that seems to never want to go away. Despite feeling like a zombie, I managed to have a really great Christmas.
On Christmas Eve morning I woke up in my childhood bedroom and my mom and I had pumpkin pancakes with syrup while we watched Christmas movies on TV. Then we got dressed up for our day of holiday parties. I wore my favorite green skirt with a dainty lace top and glittery gold tights to add a little extra dash of holiday spirit. I spent the day visiting with friends and eating all of the hors d'oeuvres I could get my hands on (pigs in a blanket are my ultimate weakness) and drinking big cups of wine. In the evening there was dinner and gifts before heading home for a late night viewing of White Christmas, the epitome of a cheesy holiday spectacular, while wrapping the rest of the presents in glittering gold paper.

  3. Love your Christmas Eve outfit Kallie! And sounds like a way better Christmas Eve than watching the stupid Hobbit! Particulary love the sound of the large glasses of wine and I might go open a bottle right now; tomorrow's Friday after all!

  9. Sounds like an ideal Christmas to me (the pigs in a blanket are the icing on the cake...and your moms pancakes of course).
    I've been on the hunt for simple skirts lately, I feel live i've been living in trousers and want to shake it up. This one is very similar to the one i've been dreaming up in my head....Next paycheck please!
