Well, we're in the single digits of counting down to Israel. I can hardly believe it. Seems like just yesterday I was sitting at this very laptop, filling out my Birthright registration form and holding down vomit.
Tis the season!!!
I depart on Wednesday and return Christmas day and am trying to squeeze in every ounce of holiday joy before the wheels go up. Part of me is a little sad to be away from my family for the first half of Hanukkah, but then again, how many people get to say they celebrated it in our homeland? Much to my delight, I was able to pack this weekend full of tinsel and treats.
Friday night, I attended the University Club holiday black tie ball... so fun! A big thank you to AEG and BCV for including me. Love them so much. I'm so sad/mad that we did not take a standing photo but I wore this dress (I bought it on Black Friday) and I am so in love with it... Definitely going to re-wear. Very soon.
Saturday night, AEG once again played hostess with the mostess and had the girls over for a holiday dinner. The food and decor were so spectacular and I wish I'd caught it all on film but my camera battery was shot.
I did get a photo of our party favors, however... (this was taken after I'd eaten a few) Those cake balls. My God. I had to share them with Mom and Dad so I wouldn't eat them all.
Had gift exchanges with Blair's Head Band and MMM, my holiday cards are in the outgoing mailbox and the ribbon on my wreath has been changed from green to gold. I had my first shellac manicure today so that I don't have to worry about my nails. Appointmentss for Bliss and Brazil Bronze Bar have been made. Hey, if I'm gonna ride a camel, you had better believe I'm gonna look good doing it.
It's almost that time...
