so much lovin'

part one of the holidays have wrapped-up and i have been spoiled rotten by my loved ones with gifts, good food, and amazing company!! i'm getting excited now for New Year's Eve... we haven't always had a slam dunk with this holiday but maybe this year is the one...  we're off to a 70's themed bash and i can't wait to be silly and party like it's 1999... well it's never to old to bust out a good Prince song! i'm going to go along with the dress code and have a black Banana Republic strapless maxi dress to wear with my Born wedges i blogged about over the summer. 

i now own a camera so maybe i'll post some photos of my NYE outfit! let the countdown to 2012 begin!

happy holidays!

what more can i say... but be safe and enjoy your loved ones during this holiday season!  this weekend is going to fly by and for some reason it doesn't really feel like Christmas here in Minnesnowta... probably because we don't have any snow!  oh well we will have to do without and still place cookies by the fireplace and watch all the holiday movies i can keep my eyes open for!

oh December

i don't know why but around this time i want to participate in "spring cleaning" but in the winter...  i have a huge urge to go through my closet and storage totes and purge things!  i'm not an extreme pack rat or hoarder but i do have a tendency to hold onto an item that i never use and just can't seem to part with.  now i think it's time to just have a good clean/purge session with my things.  i have a lovely room in our little suburban house that is mine all mine and it operates like a big walk-in closet.  lately though i just can't stand how it looks... i like to change around the dresser and chaise and desperately need to find a rug and would also like to add a small/medium sized ottoman in the near future.  now to just find the time and energy to take everything out and not get frustrated, distracted, or bored and accomplish filling-up some goodwill bags!  i used to like to consign things but i'm so lazy about taking items in and forget to check my balances and i don't like to shop in these types of places so the little money i receive is just not worth all the energy.  i'll put my designer jeans and handbags on ebay but that also takes motivation!  i hope motivation hits me this weekend!
