There are only 4 days till Christmas….say whaaaat?! I STILL have some super last minute shopping to do. LOL Nothing like keeping ya on your toes trying to find the perfect gift! I’m always up for the challenge though 😉 Do you still have some shopping to do or are you all done, wrapped and kicking your feet up? If so, I’m jealous! haha
In my family Christmas Eve is actually a big deal, that’s when we get the family together (40+) and go all out. My mom hosts at her house where she has 10 Christmas trees, yes 10 in her house! I love it! She said there are 10 because, “one for each grandchild” 🙂 All the family comes over for dinner, we change-up the theme every year this year Mexican food, we play random games, get a special visit from Santa and watch all the kids open their gifts. The best part is being able to spend that time with all our family. I am very lucky that I live so close to my family and we get to see each other all the time, I cherish those moments!
Christmas day is a little more relaxed, my sisters, theirs husbands and kids, along with Rick and I head to my dads house and with just the immediate family there are still 17 of us. LOL We don’t do anything small! My dad is an amazing cook and makes an incredible breakfast spread. Afterwards we all talk, exchange gifts, and just relax. I will most likely fall asleep on the couch. I am so grateful for the easy pregnancy I’ve had thus far, the only thing that gets to me is being tired All THE TIME! Everyone keeps telling me to take advantage of those naps now. haha Oh I will!
As for today’s look, I’m wearing the coziest (currently on sale) sweater in the most amazing color! It’s the perfect addition to a casual outfit of jeans and a basic tee. Add a pair of booties and you’re good to go! I like to keep it simple every now and then!
Do you have any fun holiday traditions? I’d love to hear them!
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends!! xo Vanessa
