YOU GUYS. Christmas is three days away. Or, for my Euro friends, t-minus two days until Santa eats all of the cookies!
Most of the gifts are wrapped. The tree is decorated. I heard some Christmas songs on the radio this morning and I’m slowly getting into the spirit of the season. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s a rainy and mildly depressing day here in New Jersey, but someone needs to spike my vegan eggnog. Stat.
Related: how is eggnog anyway? I don’t think I’ve ever had it before, because I’m not sure I’m down with drinking eggs.
Today is our time to be grateful, and if this is your first time stopping by—welcome! Each Friday, Lindsay, Beth, and I link up to share our highlights from the week. It’s a wonderful exercise in gratitude and one that I’ve come to really look forward to each week. Don’t forget to share your gratitude by linking up — hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and holiday ahead!!! <3
Here’s this week’s grateful list (which is very holiday-centric!):
Sushi, wine, and a qvetsch session with my girlfriends in Hoboken last night
Texting with besties
Lighting candles for Hanukkah and spending time with family in the city
Getting Christmas cards in the mail
This adorable little bird (from Target)–isn’t he dapper??
Holiday decorations around town
THIS VIDEO (which legit left me in a puddle of snot and feels the other day. SO sweet. I just love me some Ed Sheeran).
Christmas accidentally coming early this year. I received a package the other day and didn’t know what it was so I opened it with pomp and circumstance in front of Bryan (“OOOOOH! WHAT’S IN THE BOX?!?”) and it TURNED OUT TO BE THE CHRISTMAS GIFT I BOUGHT FOR HIM (facepalm). He kept staring at me, waiting for a reaction while I was like, “WHAT IS THIS?!” Anyway, then we did our gift exchange and I got this GORGEOUS Gunas handbag (all vegan!). Thank you, Bryan! Also, No animals harmed in the name of GUNAS New York fashion! (*click the link to see their incredible handbags)
