Christmas Eve Eve
Happy Christmas Eve Eve! Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately, I’ve been on the run a lot, and keep forgetting to snap shots of my outfit. Oops!
Here’s today (sans ruby red slippers):
Cardigan: Kate Spade, off eBay
Blouse: Lela Rose, Target/NM collection (half price!)
Belt: Vintage, thrifted
Skirt: vintage, thrifted
Shoes: (not pictured) Light Siam Jimmy Choo Strassed flats
Handbag: tiny gold bag
I have done something brutal to my neck, and am unable to carry a proper handbag at the moment. So I’ve been sporting the one above, and rotating a few small coin purses as well.
And in other news, we had a gingerbread house party Friday. Last year I only bought two houses, and day kid did one side. This year, I bought a house kit for each kid (on sale for $4.99 @ CVS). I added extra candy and a huge tub of peppermint buttercream left over from the North Pole cupcakes I did earlier in the week. I think each house reflects each child’s personality.
And for fun? I snuck a picture of some presents:
So excited! And my new favorite candy:
Of course it’s not all about me. I had each child put together a box for a local program that takes Christmas boxes down to Mexico. And this evening we blessed a local family with a few presents, so their kids could have a Christmas. We chose to have a smaller Christmas this year, and do things for others instead. I’ve been doing other small blessings since Thanksgiving, I truly enjoy it.
On that note, it’s off to bed. Tomorrow is an early morning for a holiday breakfast with my father. Kids love going, they always end up with piles of candy and fun stuff.
Until next time,
