Holiday Spirit

I had a really wonderful Christmas, and I'm so thankful for the amazing people in my life. I hope you all had a lovely day as well! I ate way too many Christmas treats, and saw Young Adult (which was strangely awesome). It really was a lovely holiday, and I'm a bit sad to see it go.

So to stay in the holiday spirit (we still have new year's!), I'm still mixing red and green. This cozy look is one of my favorites. I just love layering this jean vest with a cozy sweater, and the red scarf is a new fav. Like I said, this winter is all about being cozy!

Today Scott and I are going to brave the mall for a few exchanges, and also to check out some holiday decor. Growing up it was a tradition to get up really early with my mom and grandma and head out to Dillards to pick up pretty Christmas decorations at an amazing price. At one point my mom decided we had too many decorations (I don't believe in such a thing!), so we haven't gone in a few years, but this year I have my eye on two special stockings that I think I need for next year (if they're the right price, of course!).

Scott and I have around a week left of holiday vacation (it goes by way too fast!) and we want to make the best of it! I'm thinking a few trips to downtown Phoenix are in order, along with a few fun dates, and a trip to see the snow! Every year we head up north to get a full-on winter experience. We always freeze our bums off, but getting to have a real winter experience is SO worth it. Last winter I spent five or so days in Vail, Colorado and got my fill of the snow, but this year I'm just dying to get to the snow!
