christmas is so close i can hardly stand it. i'm looking forward to eating cinnamon sticks, drinking mimosa, snuggling with my sweet niece in pajamas, and watching my family open the gifts i've been contemplating for the last month.
what are you looking forward to christmas morning?
here are a few things that are making me smile today:
matt and i were in nyc last weekend and we picked up a couple polka dot bowls with matching dishtowels at fishs eddy... i used the bowl today and just looking at the cheery dots made me happy.
i picked up my wedding invitations today... they look great and the kind people at on paper are so sweet and complimentary, they make the whole experience so enjoyable. along with the great customer service, they have a nice selection of gifts... i found a couple unique christmas presents when i ordered the invitations last month.
i found another perfect color from essie: au natural. it's a sheer sandy beige that looks perfectly polished with 2 coats.

- a fun day spent sipping tea, christmas shopping, and ordering my wedding invitations with my dear mother
- a tasty thanksgiving dinner with my family (including my favorite classic side dish)
- celebrating the 2nd birthday of the cutest little girl in the whole world
