Mani Monday: Manic Matching

Sometimes you have to match your nails to your Christmas sweater. Why? Mostly you do it because you’re on vacation and have nothing better to do. I wished I had picked a brighter red to match my sweater better (say that 3 times fast- sweaterbettersweaterbettersweaterbetter), but I grabbed these colors as an afterthought as we were heading out the door the other day. The red pulls a bit burgundyish on me. It is OPI’s Red Fingers and Mistletoes. The green and silver topcoat is OPI’s Fresh Frog of Bel Air.

Today I have mostly been running errands and watching Christmas specials with the family. So far today, we have watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Holiday Celebration with Mickey and Pals. (The latter is a volume of 9 classic animated shorts.) What did you do today? Are you rocking festive nails? Do you like your nails to match your clothes?

You Better Watch Out!

It’s Day 11 of The 12 Days of Christmas Sweaters. In other parts of the country this day is called Christmas Eve. Christmas Eve is a very special night for people around the world. This is a night when a fat man in a red suit who has been peeping at you all year comes to every home in the world.

How does this obese man keep tabs on every person in the world? That’s obvious. He uses a surveillance team. Personnel on this team has access to some of the best espionage technology in the world. Don’t ask me how I know this.

Let’s change the subject. Here is my eleventh Christmas sweater. It has an elf climbing up my shoulder on the back.

I’m Wearing a White Christmas

IMG_1277
My Christmas holiday may not exemplify the lyrics of Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas,” but this ivory Christmas sweater with silver beading is showcasing an elegant “White People Christmas.” The knitted Aryans gracefully skating across this sweater sport two-tone dirty blonde hair and three-dimensional blue yarn-ball eyes. I have named them Sven and Olga. Special thanks to Jordan for gifting me this wearable winter wonderland.

(Also, I am kicking myself for not posting close-up pictures of all my sweaters thus far. The details on these sweaters are a sight to behold. Note how Olga’s petticoat is delicately beaded at the bottom.)

Here’s what Sven, Olga, and I checked off of my Christmas list today:

  • A church service featuring a children’s choir parodying “Let It Go”
  • A hot bowl of she-crab soup
  • Mockingjay, Part 1 (A final farewell to Philip Seymour Hoffman)
  • The Bells of St. Mary’s (The film starring ol’ Bing and Ingrid)
  • Lots of unhealthy Christmas snacking
