Life Lately :: a holiday recap!

I've missed life lately!  I'll be popping in this week with more updates on some fun trips & things we did over the the holidays.  Here's some snippets of my holidays.

 [My favorite holiday sweet]

 [My first card on my holiday garland!  From CAP(M)!]

 [Much labor & love went into these co-worker gifts!  DIY coming soon]

[Spent a lot of time hanging out by this pool in Mexico before Christmas]

 [D did me good, real good for Christmas.  Someone went over budget...]

 [Spent time with this little cutie niece that I won't get too see too often]

 [My sister.  Spent lots of time with my fam for Christmas & my other sis' bday which is only 2 days after Christmas]

[Holidays in West Virginia with D's fam]

 [After West Virginia, we headed down to western NC to take a vacation from our vacation and relax in a mountain cabin for a couple days]

[After driving back from the mountains on the 31st, we got rid of my old car & traded in for this guy to get something awesome! {Which also means I got his "old" car which was a significant cool upgrade for me}]

 [We enjoyed our Christmas decorations for one more week.  Snagged this adorable ornament in Mexico]

 [Started my year off right with the Commitment Day 5k!  My commitment is out there for all to see!  It was a rainy run that I finished in 34 minutes.  Also probably the coldest I've ever run in.  Great start to 2013!]

 [New Years Day was enjoyed with wonderful friends & extra large beers]

 [While work was right back in full swing on the 2nd, I finally got a hair cut & color! And I'm going to be better about at least getting it trimmed so I don't have to confess about that again next year]

[I also received the most beautifully packaged parcels ever.  I snagged a thermos & purse/camera bag from Kate Spade in the post-holiday sale.  I'm over the moon for them both.]

We should figure out how to master our cameras together. I got a Nikon, but still, I feel like there is so much to learn! LOL

Hey there! I just stumbled upon the blog and am loving how fun and upbeat your writing style is. It looks like you had a delightful holiday season, filled with good people and celebration! Also, I have to comment on the Kate Spade package -- I bought my first Kate Spade purse through that sale, and the package arrived yesterday. I loved all the special, little touches that were included.
