That's a Wrap!

It's the most wonderful time of the year... and it went by as quickly as it came in...

Twas the night before Christmas.. not a creature was stirring.... 

Just a bulldog waiting for Santa Paws...

Christmas Eve called for a festive sparkly skirt, and I may have been sparkly on the outside but I was the opposite on the inside. I came down with a bad cold the day before, and suffered through Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.. *womp womp*.

*Christmas morning coffee and presents by the fireplace*
(not shown is the trail of tissues behind me..ugh)

*Christmas Dinner*

*My Christmas loot*

*Lots of great bloggy-themed gifts*

My mom upgraded my Keurig to the new Keurig 2.0... amazing!

Roxy saw the box as the perfect photo opp...

Lots of food, gingerbread martinis, hot cocoa, and fire pit time = the perfect Christmas week. 

*Christmas cards from friends, family, and bloggy friends*

The day after Christmas called for a fun night over food, drinks, and laughs with friends while playing Cards Against Humanity at Emily and K's. Their adorable new puppy Lola was the belle of the ball of course!

Capped off the long holiday weekend by going to see my friend's new bundle of joy. Little man was born on Christmas Eve, but due to my bad cold I couldn't go see him until I was feeling better which was really hard. Couldn't be happier to be feeling better!
