Hungover And Hard Up

 dress: deloom // blazer: stitch fix

In hopes of "getting my life back together" I thought I'd start by writing a blog post. Is today not like the weirdest day EVER to any of you? I feel like the day after Christmas should just be a day that doesn't exist. I'm still trying to find any good in it but am coming up short every single time. Do you know what happens on December 26th to people who live for Christmas? They transcend into a downward spiral which leads to a deep deep depression that they most likely will never get out of (well at least until New Years Eve). To make matters worse, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day this year were spent via toilet side thanks to a nice dose of the flu I was fortunate enough to receive. You know what's not awesome? Hosting Christmas lunch while puking your brains out. I probably wouldn't recommend trying that one out ever if you have any say in it. It's much more enjoyable cooking when you are not vomiting into a sink. Okay I'll stop now. But hey, Merry Christmas. 
Seriously though, today is weird. I can't figure out if I am supposed to be doing a heck of a lot of something or a heck of a lot of nothing. Looking down at the robe and slippers I am currently decked out in, I am going to go with the second option. I think I'll do something productive like finish the Twizzler Bites that are laying on the coffee table in the living room. They aren't going to pick themselves up ya heard? Aside from that I will most likely write down every single thing that I hope to accomplish in 2014 because I always do so well with that stuff (for three days). If I get real crazy I may try to attempt drinking my first alcoholic beverage in days so sending some "best wishes" may be appreciated on that one. I could also start taking down our Christmas decor but that doesn't usually take place until April in our house so never mind. Laying on the couch it is! 
In conclusion, I'll leave you with some pictures from our Christmas this year. I apologize in advance if they aren't that pretty, apparently being sick really puts a damper on one's artistic abilities. 
ps. Thanks to all of you ladies who gave me ideas on what to purchase Shawn for Christmas. Because of a few of you, I ended up purchasing him a coin and I couldn't be more excited. Three cheers for technology.

And of course, because no Christmas would be complete without our annual bell ringing slash Christmas singing, here you go. Consider it our gift to you ;)

  3. Feel better. Today is weird, my husband is working, but I have another week off. I'm productive for about 10 minutes then sit on the couch for an hour. It's working for me :)

  4. I agree the day after Christmas is just such a strange day!Should you be productive, start eating healthier, pack up the decorations? Lucky for me living in Iceland the answer is on, your suppose to be lazy and eat your face off as nothing is open so what more is there to do! Hope your feeling better:)

  11. I have to say this post accurately describes my life right now (except my daughter had the flu instead of me) and I am insanely jealous of all the snow at your house! I am refusing to take down my tree until it snows here...but I live in the desert so the hubby will probably take it down when I'm grocery shopping because he is evil like that.

  12. I had to work on the 26th (talk about killing the Christmas spirit)! But at least it looks like you guys had a great time surrounded by family and fun! And you look amazing!

  13. Oh no! I'm sorry you were so sick. I actually know of a lot of people (my own family included) who came down with the stomach flu this Christmas. Here's to hoping that New Year's treats you better!

  17. Love the white dress! You seem to always have the cutest clothes from small boutiques. Do you have any to recommend? I'm looking for dresses for my shower and bachelorettes that won't break the bank! White, ivory, gold or silver!! :) I may just have to check out the white one you have on! Is it true to size? It would be cute for my shower in March!!

    Hope you had a lovely holiday and that your 2014 will be even better than the last! I hope 2014 brings you to Chicago, too!

  18. The day after Christmas should just be made into a holiday too if it falls during the week. Otherwise its just...so confusing, and I'm lost, and I don't know what to do. Other than go to work, and do nothing. Not that I did that. At all.

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
