While I barely made it, I still didn’t read as much as I’d like and this exact same resolution is going on my list for 2013, but with a little twist.
Having a great morning so far. Drinking coffee with holiday candles & christmas trees. So excited for tonight’s Christmas with my parents, Andrew, and Kaylex (bro and sil). This will include lots of chicken pot pie, cocktails, and presents. However, I did get an early present from Andrew and my Dad yesterday morning:
Pull out shelves for the pantry! I’m ecstatic, they’re perfect!
Happy Holidays all!

Yep, it’s that time. HOLIDAY MUSIC. (and I also thought this photo from last season accurately describes my mood this morning per last night’s “not even close” election results).
Every year I love to look and see what new Christmas albums are coming out. Last year was amazing…this year? Not so much. With the exception of the indie compilation, Holidays Rule, it’s pretty slim pickings out there.
Holidays Rule Various Artists
Fun., The Civil Wars, The Head and the Heart, and Sharon Van Etten sing holiday favorites = one mega hipster Christmas album! Bring it on!
Christmas in the Sand Colbie Caillat
On This Winter’s Night Lady Antebellum
meh. I’ll give it a whirl.
Cheers, It’s Christmas Blake Shelton
2012 has been my year of country…
All I can say about these last two is. WHAT THE…
Wasn’t kidding when I said slim pickings was I?!?
Oh well, there’s always next year.

We had a fabulous Christmas weekend. Four major dinners/parties in three days…exhausting, but in a good way. Particularly tiring because I can’t seem to shake this icky coughing crud.
In fact, I am writing this at 2:18 AM in the morning because I am all hopped on Mucinex-D…Many thanks to my aunt who supplied me with the last of her stash, but word to the wise: DO NOT take these in preparation for a night of restful sleep. After lying awake for a couple hours I decided to get up and Google “does Mucinex-D keep you awake?” only to find a message board on which someone described it as an “intense stimulant, will keep you awake all night.” HA!
Here are some photos from our Christmas weekend:
Me and my new easel and painting stool from Andrew’s parents!
This holiday was especially wonderful because for the first time in my adult life, I was able to sleep in my own bed in my own house on Christmas Eve–no travel! AMAZING.

Yay for Christmas! Got my day started extremely early with a workout at the gym and a nice long yoga session at home. Going to party down tonight–what are your plans?
Whatever they may be, have a merry one!

So I was driving home from work the other night…it was dark, raining, and I was listening to the Michael Buble (yep, don’t judge…I’m his target demographic & proud) version of one of my favorite carols, “My Grown Up Christmas List.”
I love the lyrics to that carol, which got me thinking of my own Christmas wish list…which made me realize that it is not so grown up. Remember the lunchbox?
Here are five of the most frivolous, unnecessary items I want right now:
3. ROOT Candle – Ginger Patchouli
4. Vogue — The Covers
5. Bench by Sticks
( By god, I will one day own a piece of this furniture)

Had a very nice holiday potluck at the office today. Wine walk downtown tomorrow. Wrapping presents, painting nails, reading, writing, and lolling around all weekend.
…also have to get back to yoga after taking a whole week off…ugh…someone is going to be sore on Monday…

So last Christmas was the first I heard of this Elf on the Shelf business. Apparently it has been a thing for awhile… I don’t have children yet, but I am fairly confident that I will never participate in it…it completely and totally weirds me out.
Many thanks to @CHRISTINEinLOU for sharing this!
