Almost a white Christmas

Snow is currently piling up outside my window, in what weathermen are predicting will reach a foot deep before it stops. So it was almost a white Christmas - I'll take it.

First Snow

Christmas was it's usual crazy self, complete with last minute shopping on Christmas eve (I discovered one of the gifts I'd purchased was damaged and had to run back to the store and make an exchange), and ended up being an hour and a half late for Christmas Eve; though in my defense I think three pm is much too early to start Christmas Eve.

Santa was good to me, the G By Guess Wonda Oxfords and the sweatshirt blazer from Express found their way under my tree, as well as a new coat, and enough Starbucks gift cards to last me through 2012. Some of my gifts accidentally got packed into my brothers car and went to his home out of state, so they sadly wont be appearing on the blog anytime soon...

The Christmas tree

Last week I won The Cohabitating Closet's Pineapple Mint giveaway, and the sweater I chose as my prize arrived on Christmas Eve and was packaged with a whole bunch of vintage belts - so fun!

We have so many Christmas cookies to eat, we only managed to put together two plates to giveaway. (Not that I'm going to complain).

Other than running out in the snow for a few minutes, my Sunday was just spent relaxing and watching movies. It's a Wonderful Life is truly one of the best movies ever. And I always cry.

Bless these snow boots. One of the smartest purchases I've made.

Glad the slippers can keep you warm in the snow storm! It's actually cold enough in Florida that I have my pair on too! :-D

Lorena said...

Well Lydia I can tell you that my turkey was the best thing on that table.....

I am craving your cookies!

Oh cookies, If I only lived near you, I'm already drooling, I am watching movies as I type, no need to get out of bed, this is THE life, if we only had a little snow...but it's a sunny day outside, feels more like the beggining of spring. I hope none of the clothes and shoes went with your brother!

your photos in the snow are gorgeous, magazine quality no lie. I watched It's a Wonderful Life for the first time a few weeks ago and bawled, it will now be a part of every Christmas, its such a good film

Awww, Lyddie, you look so pretty! I love red lipstick on you. :D And your hat..! So fuzzy and wonderful. <3

Your tree is so very pretty and I am glad to hear your christmas went well. And yes.. 3:00 is far too early to start Christmas!! You're totally safe for that reason. :D

Kimberly said...

Happy Holidays! It sounds like you had a great one. I have those same Fur Puff Slippers and bought them for my mom too. So fun!

Vanessa said...

Those furry pompom slippers are the best! I love all of your Christmas-y photos, and all the light-filled bokeh shots!
I can't believe how much snow you guys are getting. Looks like you're finally catching up to our snowfall!
Happy New Year, Lyddie! I'm so thankful I got to know you a bit this year!

You look gorgeous in the snow.....I really do not know how else to say it.

Your red coat is beautiful and I look forward to seeing more of your Christmas presents. It's been a long time Lyddie...blame my exams. But finally I am back.

Look forward to hearing from you
