a holiday right hook

i had every intention of sharing this on christmas day, but i just ran out of time. usually our christmas eve is busy and our christmas day is lazy, but this year both days were busy. i promise i'll share more later, but right now chris and i have to go out to get some food or face one of two things: starvation, or obesity by way of subsisting on danish butter cookies, pumpkin bread and candy. i hope you all had a wonderful christmas!

i wanted to get a christmas picture for you, but i had certain criteria: 1. show christmas tree 2. don't be boring. i'm glad i have a husband who will go along with any shenanigan i come up with, even if it makes us look foolish! i'm thinking this might be next year's christmas card! also of note - the dress i'm wearing is a handmade 1950's dress i got a few years ago for three whole dollars. the details are beautiful and i'm thinking i need to dedicate a post to the dress!


  1. i love it! it reminds me of the old BATMAN!!!!!
    but then you are wearing gloves so no...
    you should make this your christmas card for next year!

  2. I love love love your dress! It's so much better because you got a great deal!

  3. I wish my husband would stand still so I could hit him!
