Christmas Recap

Just wanted to recap Christmas with my family this year. My family came over to my house and all the young people had fun playing games (mostly mario) while the older relatives hung out and talked.

My parents cooked a TON of food… I know I should have take this photo before everyone ate some of it!

My cat was sneaking around the house during our Christmas party too. Since he is getting older, he likes to just hang out alone a bunch.

Hope everybody had a Merry Christmas and some good relaxing time off these last few days!

holiday wish list

finally sat down and made up a little holiday wishlist for myself. oh lists lists lists!!!! I don’t NEED any of this stuff… that’s why I like it! haha. Well here it is in all it’s glory, I have links for everything… not necessarily pictures of everything. But I think it sums up each item.

what’s on your wish list this holiday season?

first snow!

the first snow was this week. (and also the first bitter cold days) I’m always excited about the first snow since it means the holidays are almost in full swing! It also means that I will be layering more and more, and you will see this in future wearing today posts.

cross one more off

So if you have been reading my blog since the beginning (september!) I have an October Wishlist you can check it out here. I can say tonight that I have crossed off 2/5 things listed. I have a feeling 1 of those things I will just never get (strega nona’s magical cookware), and one of the other things I am obsessing over I will get in due time (canon digital SLR!).

For now, I can say that I have my long puffy down coat! Hurray! It’s going to be sooo great in helping me stay warm this winter in Chicago. I bought it last last friday from REI. They were having their winter sale! It was $79 off. I was very pumped since I had wanted this coat for about 2 going on 3 years now.

Here it is…

Opening the box…

Ahh! Can’t wait to put it on!

Even my cat wants a piece of it! Sparky… you’re already wearing a warm coat…

it’s so long and cozy looking…

wearing it for the first time!

it fits!!! now I have something to keep me warm while I’m away from my bf…So, there it is. Crossing off #2 in November, from my October Wishlist. I’ll be wearing this coat everyday until Spring. Anyone else super pumped like I am when they got their winter coat for this year? (and beyond!)
