It's the holiday season, yay!
OMG, I love me some Christmas. I'm pretty good at (or bad about if you're a pessimist) self gifting year round so while gifts are nice it's the spirit of the season I love so much. This year I haven't felt as much cheer in the air as I'd like but it's a time of year where I try really hard to find joy in even the simplistic of things.
Even though I don't have kids to set out a creepy elf for nightly I still like to do something Christmasey each day. Sometimes this is a bit of a challenge as it seems a lot of holiday activities are geared towards children and I don't like being the creeper adult at a kiddie activity with no kids, but really, are you ever too old to take a picture with Santa or have some holiday fun?
On Monday Shaun and I busted out our advent calendars, I had this nice idea if us getting fancy ones and filling them with sweet notes and treats for each other but sometimes things just creep up on you and you run out of time before Dec 1st. We still enjoy our nightly piece if chocolate though. We also watched the CMA Country Christmas special and I made "snow flake cookies". They're actually chocolate crinkle cookies but that's what my family always called then so gosh darn it that's what I'm going to call them forever.
Because I like to talk about fashion this also seems like a good time to discuss my newest obsession: intarsia sweaters! They're not quite tacky sweater but are just enough fun to add a little whimsy to you wardrobe.
This one is Lauren Conrad at Kohls. It's really soft and actually very flattering, plus the sleeves are super long! It's currently on sale for $24.99 and with a little searching you should be able to find some other discounts. It also comes in navy with love birds, light blue with hot cocca, and pink with a sequin bow.
Last night we were under the weather at Casa de MandySue but managed to make an appearance at the Nexus Night out, tonight we're headed to Holiday Trivia. All in all the holiday season is off to a nice start and I wish you all a wonderful season.
