A glimpse of the weekend

Another jam packed pre-holiday weekend 'round here.  We hunted down, acquired and decorated our Christmas tree, shopped then wrapped, baked and ate. I also brunched with one of my best friends, enjoyed wine and tapas with friends on Saturday night, ran the Jingle All the Way 8k and then attended Blogger Blitz DC on Sunday night.  Add in the fire in our apartment building Saturday night that had us up most of the night Saturday and it was a LONG, yet wonderful weekend.

Jingle all the Way 8K? Wow that's impressive (and on 3 hrs of sleep to boot!) I love your festive stockings and your white blouse is stunning! Sounds like a hectic weekend- I had one too and am feeling exhaustion creep in slowly but surely!

I love your jingle bell jog outfit. I almost dressed up for the turkey trot, but thought a headdress might slow me down...
