Christmas early... my favorite =)

Today was my Christmas with the fiance 
{even though we ended up going to my parents house unexpectedly after a facetime request}
Santa has always come a day early so that we could go to Nonna's & Grandma's house.

 Got new candles for the pine cone holders that I recently thrifted from the Rescue Mission in Trenton & lit them all for our christmas, I LOVE candles they just make me happy, you know? 
& some eggnog 
his spiked, mine not 
which was lucky since barry sneaked some sips when I was opening presents.

Speaking of presents...
Guess what I got?!?! 
I must have been a very good girl this year because santa (aka the fiance) spoiled me rotten =) 
So what is in the boxes you ask?!?!

Well #1:
a puppy charm for my pandora bracelet, it is adorable!
I have two pandora bracelets.
Silver: from fiance 3 years ago- charms from fiance & mother-in-law.
Brown: from friends at college graduation 

& what is in the Chanel box you ask?!
Say a holiday hello to my new Chanel ballet flats =) 
I have wanted these since... well this is awkward but I am going to share...
I created this folder of "Unattainable things that I love" in middle/high school
{everyone has these... right?!}:
#1 on the list? these flats. 
8+ years later and the best fiance ever = success. 
I will not be taking these off for a while. years maybe. they may have to surgically remove me from these shoes

What I Wore: khaki blouse- Michael Kors via Plato's Closet, rose button up- thrifted Rescue Mission in Trenton {being paid in clothes for tutoring- sorta}, pleather leggings- Forever 21 via Plato's Closet, Chanel ballet flats- christmas gift from the fiance =). Glasses: leopard glasses- Jean LaFont 

This was the outfit post before:
 Red sequence flats- Kmart 
Notice this face turns into a big smile with the addition of Chanel flats =) 

What did I get him you may ask:
Beer making kit from

Mushroom growing kit also from

And an:
 iPad 2 
+ leather cover from amazon.
Guess we are are both winning the best fiance award this year. 
I love the holidays. =) 

What did we get barry? 
I know terrible parents
He has like a bazillion toys & we step on them every morning. 

He didn't even notice:

It is all fun and games when he eats the wrapping paper
until someone throws up. 

Yes this boy threw up in the car. in my hand. 

Merry Christmas.

I want to marry both of you, maybe solely for the gifts. ;)

Ever since i joined the iPhone Nation (as I fondly refer to it), I've been wanting an iPad! And I've also wanted those Chanel flats since high school, too! One day one day!

Merry Christmas! <3
