Hope everyone had a lovely holiday with their loved ones! Christmas is my favorite time of the year. Now that I live in Atlanta, I don’t see my family as much as I’d like to. So, I look forward to the moments I can be home. We spent the holidays in Virginia and will be heading to Hilton Head on Wednesday to see my husband’s family.
With Christmas just around the corner, holiday festivities are in full swing! This past weekend we attended 3 holiday parties. Friday evening I went to a white elephant gift exchange with girlfriends. Then, Saturday morning my husband and I went to an ugly Christmas sweater brunch/birthday celebration. Last, on Sunday we spent time with my coworkers. I know how stressful it can be to host parties, so I always like to bring a host/hostess gift. Every one of those parties we attended had a different vibe and group of friends, so I cater my gift based on how well I know the person hosting the event.
This past weekend my husband and I ran errands and did some Christmas shopping. I still cannot believe Christmas is in 1 week! On the weekends I live in comfy clothes. Since the weather in Atlanta is constantly changing, layering is very important. My new favorite sweatshirt is from Alternative Apparel.
The weather has turned to winter in Atlanta so I’m in full on hibernation mode. I’m not a huge fan of cold weather. Part of the reason my husband and I moved further south is because we are such babies when it comes to the cold. I don’t go outside unless I’m completely bundled, or else I’ll likely complain and annoy my poor husband.
