Hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas morning (those who celebrate it anyways :) Was Santa good to you???
I’ve had a whole week full of festivities, so we’ll have a short short re-cap so I can get to the goods from Christmas and Christmas Eve.
First…my fun Forever 21 ensemble for the cocktail party last weekend.
I didn’t really want to buy a new dress but I wanted some more “fun” than “fancy” and this white strapless dress with silver floral motif was perfect and festive, especially with the “fur” shrug ;)
Love using the timer on the camera
Before the party we (me, Brian, and Jocy), had a little dinner at this new restaurant, Post 390, in the city. It was awesome and deserves its own post….so that will have to wait for now.
Some of the girls…
a few boys… (they were all in the wedding too!)
Oh the boys…
Moving along… Monday night, Brian, my Mom, and I went to Symphony Hall to see the Boston Pops Holiday show!!
I haven’t been to Symphony Hall since I was maybe 7? It’s so pretty inside.
The music was fantastic and you could tell everyone in there was in the holiday spirit! At the end they even had a sing-along complete with the words on a screen to follow along!
Now to the loot…
Brian and I did our gifts Christmas Eve morning since it was going to be our only alone time for a while.
He went all out…what a great husband:)
- Grey fleece Welly Socks for my Wellies
- Cropped pants from LuLu Lemon!!! (I was hoping for these)
- Lulu Lemon running gloves and neck warmer
Then he goes upstairs to the big closet which has had an “Off Limits” sign on it for a couple weeks.
He comes down with something wrapped in my old pink comforter:
It’s a nice outdoor umbrella for our patio!!! Awesome!!!
with a nice sturdy base! I can’t wait to put this up outside!!
Un pictured was a base for the new cappuccino machine, but right the base + machine doesn’t fit under our cabinets…hmmm.
Then the biggie…oh yes!
My very own 7 1/4 qt Le Creuset Dutch Oven!!
Don’t worry the husband made out as well! I got him:
- a tool belt
- drill bit set
- an electric Orbital Sander
- a huge Craftsman Tool storage chest
Can you tell there was a theme? Can you tell we have a house now hahah!?
Christmas morning at Mom’s.
She, um, downsized the tree this year haha… its still cute though.
Willow’s Stocking :) Mom’s stocking, with the over flow wrapped next to it.
Then my ginourmous stocking hehe
and my “overflow”…yeah she went crazy with the stocking stuffers this year.
I also received:
- another pair of Welly socks haha, I guess every time I walked by them in Nordstrom I dropped hints to her and Brian.
- a pink Cashmere sweater.
- new Christmas PJ’s!
- and mom got Brian and I an escape ladder thing to keep in our bedroom since it’s on the 2nd floor. Such a mom gift…now she “doesn’t have to worry”.
Willow loved her new toy.
I really want to run, but it’s COLD…we’ll see if that happens. This afternoon we’re off to my aunts for Christmas dinner!
Then tomorrow it’s Day after shopping!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love the day after…oh yes!
