Happy Humpday Everyone. I cannot believe that the Christmas holiday has already passed us by, I wish I could do Christmas every day of the year. Being that it is the 28th and the decor is still up makes me really happy though. Something about the holidays make me feel okay drinking Baileys, so leaving up the Christmas decor makes me feel okay doing just that!! I LOVE ME SOME BAILEYS! Anyways, our Christmas was truly amazing. Of course the twins were challenging but I am staring to learn what 3 1/2 year olds are easy. If you are one of those people who have well behaved perfect 3 1/2 year olds, then you probably should stop reading now. Just Kidding! Actually, I am probably not but you get my drift. Do not tell me about it. But honestly, it was a great weekend. Our Christmas eve was spent with my best friend Jennifer and her kiddos. We decorated Christmas cookies, watched Christmas movies, drank fun drinks and ate lots of yummy food. I am so thankful that our kiddos are best friends and thankful for a hubby that loves to cook for us. Then Christmas day was such a wonderful day. It started with gifts from Santa, while Mimi and Papa came to watch the twins open gifts. We had breakfast and mimosas by 7 and all gifts were opened by 9 am. I was a little under the weather that morning so my parents (Mimi and Papa) were out quicker than normal. They wanted me to relax before the Offer/Stanyer family Christmas party at my sister in laws house that evening. When we got to my sister in laws house that evening, it was amazing. The twins played with the other kids, we had some amazing food and it was just a great day. I actually recall telling my sister-in-law I did not want to leave because the twins were being so good. If you have kids, you know what I mean? Those days when your children are behaving so you just want to stay put. That is how I felt. The day after Christmas was spent going through the gifts and slowly putting the house back together. Usually I am the first to be in a hurry to put it all away or get the house all cleaned, but this year, I have not been. Maybe its the pneumonia, or the cold/flu crap that does not want to go away but I am just not in a hurry. I will start to put away as we prepare for the New Years weekend as we have people staying over but for now, I am going to enjoy it one more night. Again gives me a reason to drink baileys. HA!
Now… let’s talk fashion. This outfit is a must have for me right now. Actually a few posts back, you might have seen me wearing the flannel as a dress. Well…now that I have washed and dried it too many times, its a little tight so I am wearing it as a cardigan. Actually now that I type this, it makes me wonder if it is the flannel dress that is too tight or maybe I have gained a little weight? OOPS! I guess that is what 4 weeks of drinking and eating yummy food and not going to the gym does to someone. I guess that is why January comes to put us back to reality. GYM and DETOX here I come Jan 4th. That will not last long as my besties are taking me to NOLA in early February for my 35th birthday. Anyways, throwing on the flannel “dress” with this tight little Heather grey dress from Forever 21 was the perfect outfit for me. The dress is perfect for the cold weather. It is tight and keeps you all warm. Plus, it made me feel sexy in it. Double plus, they offer it in other colors as well and its only $14. Do not get me wrong, I hate tight clothes but when you throw on a cardigan with it, it hides those areas that you are not happy flaunting and gives off that HOT appeal that you are wanting. My OTK boots from Nordstrom are so comfortable that I continue to wear them on a daily basis. They are on sale right now for $119. Throw this outfit on with a good choker and long necklace and you have yourself the perfect date night or girls night out look. After all, life is way too short to wear boring clothes!
