buffalo plaid and stripes

Who's excited for Christmas? I know I am! I love decorating and taking pictures by the tree makes me really happy. My mom and I decorated the tree over a couple nights after work since I'm never home during the day. We were kind of tipsy and it was hilarious. Our tree may not look perfect, but I like it that way! I only wish it wasn't a fake tree. I really miss going to the tree farm down the road and picking out and cutting our own tree. I loved the evergreen smell and even kind of liked the chore (which was always mine) of watering the tree. I will admit, fake trees are a little easier, and certainly cheaper.

Usually my work outfits are pretty boring but occasionally I wear something cute. I wear this shirt too much but hey, I'm from Seattle and it's cold, so I wear flannel. Can I tell you something awesome about these tights? They have fully formed heels, just like socks. For some reason, I think that's really cool. Especially because the toe and heel is all black while the rest of the foot is striped. Maybe I'm a freak, but I get such a kick out of these tights. Also, stripes are awesome.

I got new glasses! Finally. I love them! They look all black in this photo, but they're dark brown with a sort texture-y pattern. Kind of tortoise shell-esque but not exactly. I didn't wear them during the day because I was already wearing contacts when I got the package, but I had to try them on and snap a picture once I got home from work. Also, my bangs are pinned back because they're wayyy too long right now. My cousin is trimming them next week though, so it'll all be good.

p.s. I'm leaving the contest open for at least a week more. There haven't been many entries so be sure to enter as your chances of winning are still really really good. I need a little more time to get all the stuff for the prize together. Go enter now! I promise you'll like the suprise prize.
