Woohoo, I made it to Blogmas day 2, I think that’s a good sign of things to come 🙂
Alright, first things first! MY BEST FRIEND ERIN GOT ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!! Erin & I have been friends since…forever.
We always talked about the day we’d get married. Fun fact – we both dressed up as brides for Halloween in Kindergarten (I wish I were home to dig up the pictures) and the day is finally here! Well, for her at least haha. I couldn’t be more excited or happier for her. I can already tell that 2015 is going to be a great year 🙂
Such exciting news, I’m thrilled for my BFF!
Thanksgiving weekend was amazing for so many reasons. Obviously the engagement(!!), and that I got to spend time with family & friends, I had a few days off to relax, and I did quite a bit of holiday decorating! I thought some festive photos would be perfectly appropriate for Blogmas Day 2 🙂
Well there you have it, welcome to my Blogmas atmosphere! What is it about Christmas decorations, movies, smells, colors, etc. that makes everything feel so cozy, uplifting, and inspiring? It’s such a magical time of year!
I’m really looking forward to this month 🙂 I hope it doesn’t fly by too quickly!
Have you put up your holiday decorations yet?
Serious Q – Do you live in a small apartment or condo & have more than one tree!? (Insert hands over eyes / kind of embarrassed / monkey emoji)

Thanksgiving Eve is the biggest bar night of the year, and in my small hometown everyone finds themselves at the local bar where it’s basically one big high school reunion. I’ve been a few times but it’s the more or less same experience every year…this year I did something a little different.
My Uncle Don (my godfather), is somewhat of a local legend at Bobby Valentines in Stamford, CT – years ago he used to run an awesome karaoke show every week. This year Bobby asked if he would be interested in hosting their Thanksgiving Eve karaoke, and he agreed. My cousins, aunts, uncles, brother, parents and best friend all headed out to Stamford Wednesday night for some karaoke fun! —>
One woman got up to sing that working at the car wash song & asked Erin, my Mom and I to be her backup dancers – needless to say, we got up & did a great job washing the cars – incriminating video is floating around somewhere LOL!
Afterwards I went home to spend some girl time with my under 21 sister who never fails to whip out her camera phone …
Regardless, I had SO much fun on Thanksgiving Eve, the most fun I’ve had in a while. When you combine family, friends, a few yummy drinks & some good, clean fun – there’s really nothing better. 🙂
