Holiday Festivities Continued and Merry Christmas!

Pics from the weekend's round of parties and holiday cheer. I'm back in California for the holidays and couldn't be happier! After one of the craziest weeks at work yet, it's nice to be back with family and friends (in 60 degree weather!) I'm currently prepping our Christmas day dinner, more to come on that! Merry Christmas!!

"Merry Christmas" Ice Luge-so college!
I made these peppermint-chocolate cookies for my coworkers-there were a hit!

Birthday Celebrations at a crazy BYOB Indian restaurant

I'm pretty sure these lights are up year round but it sure was festive!
Friends!

Chestnuts roasting....


Maybe it's the lack of snow or the 60 degree weather we've been having, but it just hasn't felt much like the holiday season!  It creeps up faster and faster each year, but I really couldn't tell you what I did between September and now, it's all a blur.  In an effort to get in to the Christmas spirit I've been partaking in anything and everything Christmas!  Baking, window strolling, visiting the tree in Rockefeller Center, drinks at Rolf's, all while listening to Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas" on repeat! It seems to be working!  Now I'm gearing up for a weekend full of holiday parties before heading home next week.

Bubble-makers at Sak's-gotta say it, not their best year for window stories
