Holiday Re-Cap in Photos

I know this post is coming a little bit late, but better late than never, right??!

I thought I would just share a few of my favorite things from the two weeks of Christmas weekend through New Years.

I don't know if I've mentioned my knitting here yet, but I knitted this beanie for J's (the boyfriend) son. Isn't it cool?! It's a greenish tweed and I am so proud of it! It's my first beanie. I'll be giving it to him this weekend and I'm really excited!!

My 1st beanie!

J's Uncle threw a party at a Portland hotel, the night before Christmas Eve. There was a DJ with dancing, great food, drinks and tons of his family. It was a really good time. Here's my handsome man and I at the party:

Party thrown by J's family right before Christmas 

J got me this pretty, sparkly necklace for Christmas and I love it!!

My other favorite gift from Santa, aka, Mom and Dad, is this stunning Cole Haan leather jacket!! WOWZERS, I was stoked when my Dad handed me the garment bag. Why wrap this?? When I saw the 'Cole Haan' on it, I knew something good was in there! He picked it out- doesn't he have great taste?? Expect to see this on the blog again very soon!!

Thanks, Mom & Dad!!

My mom bought me this kit at least a few months ago, and I just now used it right before New Years. I was surprised how easy the strips were to apply. I am such a perfectionist so I have waited so long to apply them because I was afraid I'd get frustrated and just give up. {haha} But it went really smoothly and now, an entire week later, my nails still look great! I would definitely recommend them!

FINALLY used my Salon Effects and LOVE them!!
What were some holiday highlights for you??

I will be back very soon!
