December 2, 2011

and so it begins.

Almost every night this week centered around something holiday-related: Cyber Monday gift shopping, decorating the apartment, listening to Christmas music, pulling out the advent calendar, and watching my favorite holiday movie--in fact, one of my favorite movies ever: Love Actually.

And this weekend? Well, this weekend kicks off a full month of holiday parties. 
It can be an overwhelming month, to be sure... but it's also one of the best, don't you think?

Oh, and for those who are have asked: No, I'm not missing the snow too much.
Yesterday I wore a sweater with shorts and couldn't have been happier about it. (Sorry, Mom.)

We're ready over here too! We've got a couple of holiday parties coming up and we're getting ready to send out some Christmas cards. Hope you have a wonderful time on the second day of the countdown!

I've never been to a Holiday party before. I bet it's a good time!
Love the movie 'Love Actually'! I always feel bad for Laura Linney's character though, since she ends up alone in the movie. Not sure why though, since she did get to hook up with the hot guy from work....It's a Christmas mystery! :)
