Fabulous December

This month was chocked full of Christmas activites- with a side of wedding. Let's take a look at some of the things that made this month worth saving the best for last:

The Office:
Yeah, I jumped on this bandwagon late, but do I love this show. I just plowed through Seasons 1-4 and I will sell my mother to anyone who will loan me Season 5 on DVD. I am thinking of changing my Facebook status to In a Relationship with Jim Halpert (sorry JEGs). I think what I love about it the most is Michael Scott reminds me so much of my old boss Jack- ironically my boss when I was working for a print company (-and to any of my fellow TGI-ers, Torney was totally Jacks' Toby).

Bridesmaids dresses-

I finally chose them! We are going with Jasmine's B2078 from their B2 collection in the Caymen Blue. I have been having a relationship with this dress since I first saw it. I think it really fits the feeling I am going for- understated class with a whimsical feel.

The Holidays-
I love Christmas. I love the shopping, the family traditions, the food, giving gifts, getting gifts, the Christmas movies (Holiday Inn is by FAR my favorite) and the general feeling of joy that comes with the season. This year was especially special for me because this was the first year I got to wake up next to JEGs on Christmas morning. I promise I have a full low down of Christmas coming up- next week.

The NorthEast section of this country got BLASTED with snow the weekend before Christmas. I love snow-- it brings out my inner 8-year-old. I love the calm that comes during the snowfall and I love how pretty everything looks with a fresh blanket of snow.

Let's raise our glass of eggnog and toast not only to the passing of another month, but to the passing of another year. Here's to you, December and 2009. You were filled with ups and downs, lot of joys and a lot of life lessons- but we made it through.
See you all next year!

I watched like 4 episodes last night. I've always been an office viewer, just never in the right order.

That is one gorgeous dress, that color is pretty much perfect for anyone, anywhere. Good choice.

Christmas! Thanks so much for the card, that was a fun lil surprise!

Please go have an awesome NYE. I've succumbed to the fact that I hate crowds and paying a NYE premium for ANYTHING. Thus, my NYE schedule includes Chinese food and some movies rented from the $1 box.
