Merry Christmas to all...

It's Christmas Eve, and here I am, wrapping up things at work. That's ok...I'm drinking yummy apple cider while doing it. And anyway - after today I'll be off work until January 5!

My dear friend over at CHLOE'S CHÍC posted this lovely post about the holidays, and has inspired me.

Now that Christmas Eve has snuck up on us...I am looking forward to:

- Playing Wii with my brother.
- Finding the perfect New Year's Eve outfit.
- Board games with my family on Christmas Eve.
- Planning fabulous adventures for the upcoming year.
- Watching newly gifted movies on my brother's HDTV.
- Making and promptly breaking New Year's resolutions.
- Cold weather that keeps me inside...with rain...even better!

Merry Christmas...cheers!



Boarding this past weekend...


Hitting the slopes!

(from my Tahoe trip last year)

So with all the talk of snow and cold, it should come as no surprise that I'm heading off to Big Bear this weekend to partake in some snowboarding with a group of friends! I went to ZJ Boarding House last night over in Santa Monica with my friend - she needed to get her bindings fitted on her board and I needed to drool on all of the amazing gear...and possibly buy a pair of boarding boots. Possibly turned into reality and I bought an adorable pair of boots, as well as some goggles and a new beanie! I also rented my board there, a pretty hot new board that hasn't even been ridden yet. I am pretty much ready to ride. They were so amazing there, helpful and informed...I will definitely be back to this place...probably to rent this season and buy my own board next season.

Cheers to winter and snow, and happy Friday!


Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

I'm a day behind on this, but snow has been popping up in the most unexpected places this week!



Even Malibu got some snow, according to rumors. Check out the whole album over at LAist.

Loving December!

Today has been dubbed "Letdown Thursday"

So this keeps me smiling today...


This made me smile.

It's beginning to look a lot like...


It's officially the holiday season! After a weekend full of turkey and thanks, I arrived back to work begrudgingly on Monday to lights hanging from the lobby ceiling, giant red and silver ornaments, and a massive tree in the courtyard between buildings. Oh, and wreaths in the parking lot at the grocery store don't really hurt either. Clearly, this is my absolute favorite season. I even saw Four Christmases this weekend, it was pretty cute.

I'd better crack down on holiday shopping! I may love holiday decorations and displays but I absolutely hate the increasing crowds during the season. Thank goodness for internet shopping.

By the way - a ridiculous event to check out might be the Santa Con. Hilarious!
