I am now officially on holidays!  This is the first year I have opted for a slightly longer Christmas vacation, and I am pretty excited.  We don’t have much planned other than visiting with friends and family.  I am very much looking forward to two weeks of relaxing, sewing, skiing, and maybe painting the basement (it needs a facelift – the walls are currently a terrible color of puke yellow…).

J.Crew Paley pants and a cozy RW & Co. sweater

We are getting blasted by a cold-snap this week.  It’s to the point where Scooter (our dog) has zero interest in going outside.  When we open the patio door, he immediately backs away and looks up as if to say “seriously? you expect me to go out in that?”  Such a funny guy.

I probably should clarify – when I say cold-snap I mean the bundled up like a sausage & wearing long underwear under my work clothes type of weather…  These pics were taken last week in slightly milder weather.

I (expletive) suck at trying to decipher nonsense words – you know, when you want to comment on blogs, or sign into some websites, or stream illegal videos (what? who?) that annoying dialogue comes up asking you to prove that you’re not a robot.  It often takes me 3+ tries to successfully verify my humanity.  I’m seriously brutal.  Refreshing to “easier” combinations help…sometimes…

Just a few ways to quickly transform a summer dress into a cozy but formal New Years Eve outfit.  Who says you need a new dress?  That being said, I am having a delightful NYE at home with Scooter (Kevin is working).  So no dressing up for me – just some lazy-night-clothes, some booze, and an evening full of TV specials 🙂
