This and That Christmas

This is my wonderful cousin (that also happens to beautiful, kind, and a doctor...not fair, right?!) and her crazy fun hubby. It was treat to get a call from them on Christmas day! As you know, the FaceTime thing is new to me but hooray Apple for bringing families together! I was telling them that FaceTime and Skype remind me of that old Carousel of Progress ride at Disney World. The last stop shows you a holidy family playing video games that they are in (Wii, anyone?), using a voice control oven (Siri?!), and talking to Grandma on the tv! Technology is cool, y'all.

That is my Christmas day outfit, including my lovely $.99 Goodwill sweater vest. Love it!

Shirt: Old Navy (here on sale!)
Vest: Coldwater Creek, Goodwill!
Denim: Forever 21, old (similar here)

This is the super sexy (early) 90's apron I inherited on Christmas day because my mother was thoroughly embarrassed that my dad still wore it and bought him a new "manly" one. Score!

That is the face of my cutie cute man who was pouting that we couldn't be together on Christmas day. Saddest/cute face ever, am I right?? Love him.

And have I mentioned he's a total goof? Still love him.

This is the most adorable dog in the entire world, that happens to belong to my family so I may be biased (but seriously look at that face), wearing his sweater because it finally (praise the Lord!) cooled down in Houston! What a stud muffin!

That is documentation of BFF night at our favorite local hang, Sharky's! Nights with Em are the best and we ran into some old friends from middle school- accidental reunion! We also tried watermelon margaritas for the first time. Imagine jolly rancher + margarita = YUM (if you are into that sort of thing).

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas day with your family and friends! 
Now on the the next holiday-

What are your New Years Eve plans? I'd love to hear from you!


  1. Watermelon jolly rancher in liquid alcoholic form: sounds amaaaaazing!

  2. Just stumbled across your blog and for starters, I loooove your Goodwill sweater vest! AWESOME!

    And I love that the dog is wearing a sweater because yes, it did finally cool down here in Houston (although, i'm kind of ready for the warm weather to come back... okay, well, WARMER weather!)

    Watermelon Marg's sound DELISH right about now!!!!

    1. Thank you!! Isn't Winston the cutie cutest?! And I agree with you on those margs- we had girls night again tonight and you can guess what I ordered! YUM
