Greetings From Old Man Winter

Old Man Winter has finally made his appearance.  We've had freezing rain & snow aplenty.  We'll be running around all day today, finishing up last minute touches for tonight's festive get together.  Happy New Year's Eve :)

Photo Friday: The Holidays & 27

It's been a busy holiday season & a wonderful way to end 2012.  The past week was spent completing some holiday baking, celebrating Christmas with family, & turning 27.  I have some last minute NYE prep to finish, as we have visitors arriving tomorrow for a few days :)

I let Betty do all the legwork for this years baking..

Put On the Glitz

I wore this outfit to our office holiday party & let me tell you, it helped set the holiday mood.  After celebrating turning 27 yesterday, all I wish I was doing was lounging around the house & cleaning up all our Christmas mess.  Unfortunately, I'm working & crossing my fingers for more snow....

Photo Friday

Hello, Friday!  I had an amazing week, filled with new holiday clothing, adventures, & Christmas themed everything. The office is throwing our holiday party this afternoon & you better believe I'm decked out in sequins. It's turning out to be some December...

Hot Coffee & Cold Winter Mornings

All layered up & it looks like just in time, as the weather is taking a turn for the worse.  The weather man is threatening freezing rain with a side of snow, which is fine in my book considering I haven't seen snow on Christmas for several years now...

Inspiration: Bundled Up

This is the time of year to throw on as many layers as possible (whilst hoping that you'll still fit into your coat) & make that mad dash from shelter to car/car to shelter.  Here are a few images that make me crave layering & sipping a warm beverage...

Re: Attention-Seekers

And here's some more on these boots.  You want some real attention at the mall? You know, in the form of complete strangers squealing with delight over above mentioned/below pictured boots.  If the answer is yes, then these are the boots for you.  Don't get me wrong- I love a good compliment over something I'm equally as smitten with (what girl doesn't?), but when said stranger follows me into a store just to gush over my becomes slightly creepy & the moment is ruined.  Agree or disagree?
