Hello!! Due to being confined in Boise for Christmas and without access to a real computer (if I could rewind and tell myself to bring my laptop on the trip, I definitely would), I couldn't blog on Christmas. Which, in a lot of ways, might be a good thing. We all need a break, yeah?? But, I did have a lot of time to kill so I could have documented the day...easily. Oh well.
How was your Christmas?? Mine was spent babysitting my darling cousins. We opened presents last Wednesday and after hanging them up in my closet, I've decided...yes, I have too many. Ooops. I added thirteen dresses to my collection and several sweaters and skirts. I got a pair of beloved Tom's (finally!). My favorite item was probably my new brown oxfords which I'll be blogging sooon! We left for Boise on Thursday and spent Christmas Eve and Christmas with my mom's entire extended family. My mom is one of six and all but one live there. My grandparents divorced a good time ago, so there are two sets of grandparents at every event. This means there were a good thirty people gathered at all times. It was sososo much fun. I feel so blessed to be able to have watched all my cousins grow up and for new ones to be born. My aunt could literally tell you that I taught my cousin to walk and I saw his brother take his first steps. I love being the old cousin! After being surrounded by so much family on Holidays and reunions, it's pretty much solidified in my mind that I want a big family. I've always wanted at least another sibling and I love the idea of being surrounded by people all the time. I might not be saying that after I have even just one kid though...so we'll see ;).
Niklaas and I took pictures today. It was so wonderful! He has a fancy camera, and now a fancy film camera, and he was carrying my nikon fancy camera, so while he was taking pictures he was camera overloaded. It was funny! I was also one bobby pin short and without a mirror, putting on my headband in this way is nearly impossible. So he did it. Hehe! And that he did-which took a good solid fifteen minutes. Hehe!
dress- Modcloth tights-Urban belt-Goodwill boots-Ross headband-F21
I got this dress for Christmas! I got my first ever dress from Modcloth and then another one came yesterday! Eeep! This one screamed Christmas to me and I love that it has sleeves! The lace detail is also so pretty- I feel like every time I buy floral dresses I have to choose one that has something about it that sets it apart from my other floral dresses- sleeved floral dresses make up 99% of my closet. Hehe. I think I'm in love with Modcloth.
I got these tights at the Urban sale yesterday morning! I didn't think about the fact that my lifetime (okay, just for the 3 years that I've known of its existence) dream of going to the After-Christmas Urban sale would come true coming to Boise for Christmas. But it did!! Since my mom continually complains about runs in my tights, she bought me new ones. Oh how I miss parents paying for clothes! And they fit perfectly. I hate when tights are really tight- which is kind of ironic, I know, but I like when there's room to breathe and move around. I got this necklace from my cousin and it matched this necklace perfectlyy! I was so excited. I thought these boots matched my belt well so I put them on.
Well. I'm off to walk my dog with Niklaas (my chore of the day) and do other fun fun things. I hope you had a happy Christmas!
