On Christmas Eve I made a purchase for myself that wasn't impractical but also not completely necessary...and I couldn't be happier with my decision. I was reading a post on the Fresh Exchange about winter essentials. One of her suggestions was Sorel snow boots so when I was very last minute Christmas shopping at TJMaxx, these boots caught my eye because they were in my head. Like I mentioned already, I didn't necessarily NEED snow boots but I also couldn't leave these behind (and for the half price sticker, I was very excited to get such high quality and cute boots).
10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with the ones they love. A few presents I received below...my family knows my love for pretty necklaces too well (:
Last night I enjoyed a tradition with my mom and sister and failed to get a picture of the three of us :( The night was still a lot of fun...we went and saw the Nutcracker at the Walton Arts Center performed by the Moscow Ballet. It was beautiful. I wanted to share my outfit because I LOVED it. It was my first time to wear this hi-lo dress from Riffraff!
It's December now and I'm posting about Halloween. I do realize I am quite behind, but I loved my costume this year and couldn't help but sharing a few pictures (even if they are late).
If you've seen Lady Gaga's "Born this Way" video then you understand this costume. If not, that is what it's from. It was a fun, cheap costume...I only had to buy the wig, bow tie and makeup. And yes...I did the makeup myself. I was very please with it (: Skeleton photoshoot...that's one for the books.
