christmas is all around me

I feel it in my fingers. I feel it in my toes. Oh man! Oh man! Christmas is all around me. Holiday Cheer is in the air people. It's official. You know what else is official, my excitement level for said Holiday Cheer.

The tree is decked. The presents are purchased and mostly wrapped. I am attempting to stay away from too many holiday treats.


And now this week's installment of things I learned this weekend. 

1) Your tree will start to die if you don't cut off the bottom and give it some new life. 

2) Fun ornaments from friends are cuter than cheap target balls. 

3) Glitter makes everything better during arts and crafts time. 

4) Holiday parties are more fun with a photo booth. 

5) DMC from Run DMC is jacked for how old he is. 


6) It takes a lot of work to actually do your hair and makeup.


7) It takes even extra work to paint your nails....but if you do paint them, make sure it's with gold glitter 

8) When you lose your DSLR's battery charger, you can't upload any of the actual photos you took of your cute Christmas tree. 

Cheers!

I seriously hope your post title is a reference to Love Actually. If not, I'm going to pretend it is.
Also, you're prettyyyy

Don't get me started on photo booths! I bought stuff for one, but didn't take any photos since my phone spent the night in a bowl full of rice.

I love your dress and would totally wear it if I went to anywhere that required me to wear something other than yoga pants and a hoodie :)

how do you get curls to actually stay? even with a can of hairspray, I still just end up with rock solid, dead, dangling corpses of what were curls...
