Baby, It's Cold Outside


Happy Wednesday, darlings! What a week it's been. Sorry if I didn't stop by your place yesterday. I've been busy with all of the Christmas preparations...shopping in the absolute freezing cold, decorating the house, trying to decide what else I need to buy and what on earth I will serve my company next week for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. And on top of it all, I've yet to even write out cards or wrap a single present.

How are you all doing with the holiday preparations? Am I the only one with a lot left to do?

Hope you're all having a wonderful week and for those of you experiencing the cold, I hope you're staying warm!

xoxo

Hello Lovely! I really want grey leggings like the ones in the first photo, too cute! Such a beautiful Christmas post! Rome just barely decided to freeze this week, so it's been in the 30's...I can't even imagine how cold it is there! Good luck with your holiday preparations and stay warm. :))

I am...completely done. Never happened to me before but this year, somehow, I was on the ball. Thankfully, too, because with this cold and snow I want to do nothing but snuggle up.

Love the wellies! I am so behind as well! Just finished wrapping.

this free bird said...

Dawn I am so far behind, work's been a bear, haven't had time to read a blog thoroughly in days...and now the tree lights are acting up just as I'm getting ready to decorate.

Reading your current state has made me feel less alone. Lovely post - the first picture especially.

Okay - I'm off to tackle the tree. It's my fave and I refuse to be conquered!!

xo,
