T'was the Day before Christmas Eve and all at my job...
not a creature was stirring, not even the boss..
we were buzzing at our desks , those that were there..
with hopes that relief soon would spread here.
then out from my outlook, i heard a ding and such a chatter
I rose from my seat to see what was the matter
Away to my monitor, I flew like a flash
popped open an email from President Obama..
Off Federal Gov't Agencies, was all I needed to hear
Per Executive Order we were in the clear.
Off for Christmas Eve I couldnt be more merry
A great way to start my Christmas, home with my family..
(sorry I felt like being a little poetic, please ignore all corniness-lol)
So we were off for Christmas Eve... and so my husband decided he would like to drive up to Philly for a friend of ours who was hosting his company's Christmas Party.
And so I bring to you one of my first OOTD (outfit of the day) posts:
This is what I wore to the holiday party in Philadelphia..
|Red Sweater (Target), Top (unknown), Sequin Leggings (H&M), Knee Leather Boots (UGGS)|
Here are a few photos from the event - on the right is my fellow musician's wife, Kai.
|Me, Trish and Kai|
|me and hubby - notice he is rockin Ravens gear. We are a Ravens Nation household!|
The next day I spent wrapping presents for the family
and for some of the little girls that go to my church.
Time to go to church - Therefore another OOTD:
Red on Red on Red... I am all about layering jewelry and layers.
I fashioned this with a Black Pencil Skirt and Black and Gold Dotted Opaque Tights.
|Me and our Drummer, D. Web at Sunday Service|
Later on that evening, it was time to have dinner with our closest friends. This is our crew that was in our wedding.. the ones where we can just act ourselves with. This year we decided to do a Secret Santa gift exchange and it was so much fun.
We did dinner at The Chart House right on the waterfront of Downtown Annapolis - those who were married ended up sitting across from each other so that the women could chat up a storm and the men could have their fun too.
We headed to my parents on Christmas morning , just to be greeted with this surprise!
It went from warm weather all week to about 24 hours of snow..
When it was all said and done it looked like this :
Then it warmed up later that evening and snow turned to rain and it was like nothing ever happened. Strange weather of 2012.
I kid you not.. this is my parents Christmas Tree... or should I say Christmas Bush!
We teased mom but at the same time - I am allergic to pine and in a household full of adults there is no need to go above and beyond on the tree. It was festive enough with the balls and lights on it. LOL
As we march closer to the New Year..
Tomorrow is my Blog-Anniversary. One WHOLE year of getting out thoughts and capturing moments that I did not want to forget.. so come back for the best of 2012 tomm.
AND for those on vacation right about now,
Have a wonderful Holiday!
