Christmas Recap!

We started our holidays out at home on "Our Christmas" 
which consists of champaign, sushi 

and opening our gifts to each other and spoiling the puppies + now kitty...
My Christmas mani was OPI's "Christmas Gone Plaid" + "Comet in the Sky"

I also picked myself up some presents:
I am at the tail end of burning my winter candle that I actually got in 2012 and I decided it is a winter smell I can't live without because it screams Christmas when you walk in...
Ordered two more on Ebay!

I've been wanting to add this DNA bracelet to my arm candy & with the holiday sale I went for it! 

Then Christmas moved to my parents house, 
full of dogs & sisters...

Maggie + Stanley {mom's Christmas present}

The boys!

After a 3+ hour car ride to New York, 
this little pug was still in the holiday spirit! 

Such a rainy Christmas Eve, called for Hunters!  

Christmas Eve we spent with the Feast of the 7 fishes, 
and a gift exchange that resulted in this beauty...
good God...

Then we went to visit my Grandfather, 

& my other Grandfather {Nonno} hung out with the latest Basilone- Stanley!

Yes, I know we are like Noah's Arc...
this is my sister Bianca's dog Ellie, relaxing  

Then on to Grandma's house...

What I Wore: glasses- BonLook, lips- Revlon "Cherries in the Snow", earrings- Clairs, scarf- Target, necklace- BaubleBar, top & cardigan & boots- thrifted vintage, leggings- Walmart

As for gifts,

Arnold got his sign that makes him an official member of our Periodic Family =)

I got this pretty bracelet holder! 
Love the floral rustic details! 

And this dress from my sister that is unfortunately too small and will now turn into a shopping date!

Also from my hubby was this awesome double headed ram bracelet! 
I wanted it at the Trenton Punk Rock Flee Market & he saved her card and got it for me!

I think my favorite gift I got was this "Like a Sister" Alex & Ani bracelet that my cousin Sabrina gave me! She is so sweet, it is perfect!

Jam packed Christmas Holiday!
Back to NJ,

Back to admiring our electrician neighbor + his decorations!

Happy Holidays!
Looking forward to the New Year, but not wishing away this break!
