Holiday parties

Tonight, Brett and I went to my first company holiday party! I was so excited - it has been so much fun to get to know everyone so far at work, but it's always fun to meet their spouses and spend the evening chatting! Work has consumed my life and thoughts lately, but I'm totally loving it. I can't believe I haven't updated the blog since Tuesday, eep! I've just been so busy. I haven't even called my parents in a week!

We had dinner, drinks and a book white elephant exchange tonight at a country club in the city. It was gorgeous and the food was amazing! I had planned a whole different look, but the dress I got.. the zipper went up, but it would come apart in the middle.. I was so bummed! So I had to re-plan an outfit and was having a total meltdown flinging clothes out of my closet! I liked the way this outfit turned out, plus this event gave me an excuse to style up this skirt again!

I can't believe we're halfway through December! I haven't bought a single Christmas gift or anything. I don't know why I can't get into the holiday spirit this year. Our apartment is half decorated and now I'm thinking.. man, I don't want to decorate just for a few more weeks! I've gotten Brett a few things.. that are sitting on the floor in the rec room in full view for him to see (how romantic we are this year!) and our plan is just to go shopping for each other with the paycheck after Christmas. Ha ha! We're so that old boring married couple this year!
