5 Favorite: Christmas Traditions

December 9, 2011

in Blog, What I Ate Wednesday

Are you fully in the holiday spirit yet?!  We are, especially having a 3 year old in the house that asks everyday when Santa’s coming.  I actually had my tree up sooner this year than any other year….before the end of November.  I must say, I like it.  December is so busy and goes by so fast, starting early seems like Christmas will last a little longer.

We’ve got our annual holiday party next Saturday.  We haven’t done a theme in a couple years, so we thought “why not” for this year.

from our "Ugly Sweater" party a couple years back

Its a James Bond 007 theme.  Fun, right?  I’m wearing an old grad dress I have.  No, not an ‘ugly’ grad dress, although I do have one of those too.  Fortunately, its a classic, so I’ve got some pretty good use out of it.  I didn’t have the time or energy this year to search high and low for ‘the perfect dress’.  I must say, it feels pretty good to still be able to fit into something I wore when I was 18!  (I’m 31, which I still haven’t come to terms with yet!)

In SkinnyScoop fashion, I wanted to create  little list of my 5 Favorite Christmas Traditions!  Would love to hear some of yours!  Drop them in the comments below 🙂

    I finally got our Christmas stuff up last night at like 2am! I agree, December seems to go by so fast! We usually try and get everything up right away but it just wasnt in the cards this year.

      2am, woah! That’s dedication! Ah well, there is always next year. I guess that’s what’s nice about having a fake tree too….doesn’t matter when you put it up!
