Festive Fun

We have been partaking in all the holiday fun! From festive beverages to going to see all the Christmas lights to a sleigh ride down the river, we're taking it all in before this fun season is over in the blink of an eye. 

I was excited to receive a fun and festive package from Van Gogh Vodka. They sent me their holiday dessert pack, and they are DELISH! I shook things up (quite literally) in an Instagram Reel last week. I'm not sure if it was more fun making the Reel or enjoying the fruits of my labor. 

There's something extra magical about that morning cup of coffee when it's enjoyed in front of the tree isn't it? I found the cutest mug for only $5, and it's been on repeat each morning. 

We took Lil' Miss to Wekiva Island for a sleigh ride down the river, and were surprised by not just Santa but Mrs. Claus too. We love going there in the warmer months for floating and swimming, but had never been there for Christmas and now it's definitely going to be an annual tradition. They have a field of decorated trees, and the whole place is decked out and festive. Nevermind the Santa sightings and Florida-style sleigh rides. 

An adult slushie for the sleigh ride, and a little of my new lipstick showed itself on the paper straw. Last time I brought back 6 empties to MAC, I asked everyone which lip shade I should pick out for my reward and the 2 shades that were the most popular responses were Creme Cup and Twig. I ended up going with Creme Cup, but finally picked up Twig and am LOVING it. Such a great shade especially for this time of year. 

Afterwards, we went out for pizza at a favorite local spot before walking around Cranes Roost Park to see their Christmas lights. 

One last festive find - we discovered a local coffee shop called NewCity Coffee Co. was making holiday coffee flights. Yes please! They were delish, and I was surprised that the maple bacon flavor was my favorite one. I expected to be all about the White Christmas or Gingerbread Cookie.

  10. I hear you. Time is flying by so fast so you've got the right idea and how fun is it to visit a sleigh ride on a river. That sounds like a good family trip and how awesome that Mrs. Claus was also there. Love your new lip color. Perfect for every day but also for this season.
