It's Beginning To Look...

Good Monday morning, lovelies! How was your weekend? Did my American friends have a happy Thanksgiving?

I finally digested after my Thanksgiving meals sometime Friday and I ended up having a very enjoyable and productive weekend. Got to spend a lot of time with family, started to decorate the apartment for the holidays and I was able to get some shopping done. And in between it all I even managed to squeeze in some relaxation.

My holiday spirit is in full force and I'm looking forward to all the festivities yet to come.

Do you all have the holiday spirit yet?

Enjoy the day, sweets! Oh and in case you missed it on Friday on was on over at Trust Your Style taking part in Mary Jo's Eye on Style Series. Stop by if you have a chance.

xoxo

Right now it's still too nice outside to think about the holidays:-) but I know it's around the corner!

Styleabaad said...

It's hard for me to get into the holiday spirit when it's not even cold or snowy outside like I'm used to from Sweden! But in a few weeks I'll be heading over there and I'm so excited for that!

Lovely images as always. I had a pretty chill weekend at home with some projects. It's been kind of hard for me to get into the holiday spirit with the almost balmy weather we've been having in NYC lately. Not that I'm complaining really ;)
