Christmas Velvet Vest

Today, Jono’s parents came for the holidays and got to see our house for the first time. They brought lots of presents and sweet treats. I was very excited. I couldn’t help but giving a few high kicks and shaking some gifts.

I asked my in-laws which vest I should wear over my new striped shirt today, and they both voted for this one. The buttons are a particular favorite of mine even though they are very difficult to maneuver. Family coming over just means that the big day is getting closer! Are you getting excited for Christmas?!

Day 6: The Wearing of the Birthday Gifts

I’m feeling almost 100% today, so I guess it’s back to work for me. I would probably have post-birthday blues if I didn’t have so many awesome gifts to wear. I took a picture of my candy purse yesterday, and today I am wearing a brand new sweater from my mother-in-law and leggings from some awesome friends. (I’m pretty loved.)

The front of my new sweater features Christmas trees made out of pieces of ribbon. The back has an awesome tree formation made from snowmen, trees, and a present as the trunk. This is one detailed sweater.

Since I’ve been loopy on cold medicine for a while now, I have to get back to work. Also, our bags are still unpacked from Thanksgiving. Should I just leave them packed for Christmas? What do you think? Let me know in the comments!

The Fourth Day of Christmas Sweaters

Day 4

Over the years, many people have asked me why I don’t do 25 days of Christmas sweaters. The answer is simple. I did not want the wearing of Christmas sweaters to overshadow my birthday. However, I¬†was overzealous¬†this year and accidentally ended up with too many sweaters. Thus, I will be wearing a Christmas sweater on my birthday tomorrow. Since we don’t have any plans to go anywhere fancy tomorrow, I don’t mind too much.

I’m singing a beautiful aria in my mezzo soprano voice. Just kidding. My voice currently sounds like an old man who chain smokes.

 

Jono has been busy wrapping all of the presents that I have been sent in the mail and putting them underneath our tiny tree. I’m pretty psyched to open them tomorrow! Happy birthday eve to me!
