Holiday Happiness

I've started playing with my Smashbook I got for Christmas! I love it...especially the polka dot tape. Here's the first page including one of the first pictures K & I have together. The lists are "when I first met you I thought you were:" I was apparently nerdy. Ha.

I met my new nephew, Emerson! He's a chub & adorable. A tiny 3 week old with that fresh baby smell...I love him.

Nantucket Baking Company, a place not even a block away from us & extremely dangerous for late night snackers such as us, have lavender macaroons! I love macaroons and pretend I'm in Paris when I eat them. Maybe someday I'll make it there.

Snuggling with the spoiled pup.

I do love ugly Christmas sweater season. K looks great in poinsettias.

take one down, pass it around...

 Hooray for bottled beer ! 
We're halfway done with all our Christmas gifts this year. I have to finish my mugs to accompany the brews but I've been spending every day off of work at the studio busting my hump to get all this done. It takes a lot more planning to have a DIY Christmas list but it's also a fun team effort. If the beer tastes awful, at least it's the thought of it being homeade that counts. But seriously, this beer better be delicious after all the energy we've put into this or else we'll be sad pandas.

Our tree...aka houseplant mini norwalk pine. After standing at Target for 30 minutes staring deep into the LED lit fake trees on sale, I finally walked away without one in hand. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. Low & behold the grocery store had just what we needed- an oxygen giving plant that was inexpensive & already glittered. Sold.

Feast your eyes on the best ugly holiday sweater ever! The goodwill cashier gave it to us for free since it was so ugly he felt guilty charging us. There are shoulder pads for those who are wondering & the ornaments are made of pure sequin perfection.

Free coffee from work! Yum.
