making a list, checking it twice.

 blazer, teal ring: f21 / dress: belk / hunter green tights: c/o We Love Colors / Vance booties: c/o Blowfish Shoes / belt: from Sandy (in my CHWH package!)

whew! we are in the heart of it, folks. christmas parties. holiday wrappings. extra sweets and treats. christmas music on repeat. red and green tights recycled. more post office runs than normal. sending our Christmas cards (these ones in particular by my friend julieanne!). and of course, christmas gift shopping! i've got a handful covered but a majority of them are still waiting to be picked up at various retail locations yet to be purchased. but, hey, it'll all get done. it always does!

oh wait. you're still shopping, too? why yes, you may write down a pair of "hunter green hunter boots, iphone4s, and a private concert with Bruno Mars" beside my name. i wanted to give you options - just in case.

much love.
[happy monday, friend.]

p.s. all Cold Hands, Warm Hearts Swap participants, don't forget to prep those posts for the HUGE link-up party over at Sandy's on December 14th.

one more day left to enter the smashing giveaway happening HERE.

 Follow much love, illy

  6. I have barely even started my Christmas shopping. Every year I tell myself that I am going to be good and get it all done early. Every year I know that I am lying to myself.
