A His and Hers Christmas Kinda Tree

After the people at the Christmas tree lot assured Evan that our tree would indeed not catch on fire, we finally came home with a tree. And as predicted, Bams, our oldest dog, freaked the fuck out. They've now settled their differences and Bams has proved he's no longer scared by eating one of the ornaments. In all fairness, the polar bear ornament with present in hand did resemble a cookie and if I didn't know any better may have confused even me. But personally, I would've gone for the gingerbread guy.

This year, I've done things a little different. I was hellbent on decorating with pink, turquoise and some extra sparkle, and I would've decked out the entire tree if some personal ornaments didn't clash with my new decor. To solve the issue, I did a his and her side. The Husband's ornaments face the window, or what I like to think of, the Barneys holiday window display of Christmas ornaments.

The Moose represents an old nickname, just in case you were like, huh?

Even Noralini Zucchini enjoyed watching us decorate.

Hanukkah is Over and I Did Not Get Eight Presents

As an honorary Jew, you'd think I'd get eight presents. Nope. But that's okay 'cause I kinda have a no gift policy when it comes to the holidays, lead by me for The Husband. I'm really picky and I have a hard time deciding between what I want and what I want-want. We all want tons of things but choosing what I reeeeeaaally want for things like my birthday and Christmas/Hanukkah puts a lot of pressure on me. I usually ask for a giftcard (cash or check will do too) but The Husband thinks that's unromantic, uncreative and impersonal. I think it's as practical as it gets. But alas, I must decide and sent him links of the things I want-want. And just for fun, I mixed in some things I want.

1. navajo sweater 2. flowers book 3. kate spade iphone case 4. zumba video 5. fragrance 6. thank you cards 7. miu miu pumps 8. sofia coppola x louis vuitton clutch.

PS - Today marks my official one year blog anniversary. ONE WHOLE YEAR! I will not be celebrating today because I didn't actually start to get more serious about it until February. Drinks for all come Feb. Thanks for visiting. And if you wanna see how much more amateur I was, read my first post here.
