The List: The best part of Christmas

Yup, only five more sleeps till the Man in Charge arrives so there's plenty of Christmas everything all up in this place.
Our real tree is decorated, our not-so-classy Christmas lights are on outside and the kids obsession with the upcoming holidays is just about maxed.
Like everyone else, this month has been crazy busy. We've had concerts, kids x-mas parties, birthday celebrations, a baptism (as always?) and a bridal shower and we're just getting warmed up!

Even though it's hectic, here are a few things that are especially GOOD about this time of year:

  • The (behavior modifying) Elf on The Shelf is working double time.
  • Egg Nog is on sale...the kids love that stuff?!
  • Mama's done her shopping. That's right, the mall can sook it! I'm not going anywhere near it, till next year...
  • I've had no qualms about eating Baked Brie three times already this week.
  • Christmas break begins tomorrow. Bitches be SLEEPIN' IN...
  • You can never get tired of the smell of Apple Cinnamon candles burning. NEVER.
  • "Last Christmas" by Wham.  'Nough said. 
  • Candy Cane Martini's and Champagne can be classified as their own food group. 
  • Sequin's, heels and glitter are in charge of all fashion.

And through all the busyness I've still found time to apply quickie candy cane mani's. 
Good Lawd I have an un-steady hand!
The trick is to keep your fingers moving so no one can focus on the crappy application...

We got a family Christmas party coming up on Sunday night,
I'm thinking about wearing something like this..
I'll tone down the accessories and sadly won't be wearing heels in the house (since that's no bueno here in Canada...) 

Hope you all survive this Christmas season and are able to slow down for a bit and enjoy it with those you love.  

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays...
