Love the Holidays

I can't believe Christmas is ten days away! It has really snuck up on me this year. Hasn't the year gone crazy fast? This Christmas is extra special for us since it will be the first time we get to stay home & enjoy Christmas in our own place. 

Even though we all still wish we were visiting family, it's been so wonderful getting to decorate our own home as well as cultivating new family traditions! Plus there is just something so fun & special about having Christmas music playing all day long & having ELF in your DVD player {ready to go at a moments notice}. And don't get me started on all the sweets we've baked & are now spread out all over our counters...I can see why Christmas is a kid's favorite holiday! 
We have so much to be grateful this holiday season! I have been trying to make an effort to ponder on the blessings in our lives and it has made such a difference in my attitude. Which makes sense, it's pretty hard to be a grump when you see how much you're blessed with {family, love, happiness, friendship, health} right?
The girls got to decorate the Christmas tree this year which they absolutely loved doing. I don't know if it's because they are three & six years old but they are really great helpers. Now I just need to start wrapping up some of their presents to stick under the tree! I've already opened a couple of my presents {shhh! don't tell anyone}. I am really really bad about opening my gifts early {but it's hard to resist when its a gift card to Famous Footwear}
I bought this cute pair of boots with my gift card the other day & If you follow me on Instagram you've probably already seen me sporting them a few times.

I'm pretty in love with them, so I had to go back & also get them in black:D. Please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks walking into Famous Footwear is like walking into a candy shop?! There are just too many wonderful options & it's a shame to only walk away with just one thing.
I love getting inspiration from others & seeing what they're wearing, so  I guess it was only natural I would be fond of their #ohsofamous gallery!

 Have you finished wrapping up all your gifts?
