A Very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

We have been quite busy with holiday madness, traveling, work, and the like so this is going to be quite the bomb of pictures and short descriptions of what has been going on in our lives as of late...

First off, let's go back about three weeks to Thanksgiving time. We host an annual Friendsgiving dinner the day after Thanksgiving every year where our second family (our friends) get together to have food, wine, and play silly games. This is honestly one of my favorite "holidays" and one of the only traditions that has kept after 6 years with everyone moving away and on with their lives.

Here are just a few pictures from the night. 


...and then we all went into a food/libation/silly games coma so the pictures stopped..! But we had about 15 people show up all together and it was a very successful "Friends"giving indeed. 


Next up, Samantha and I got contacted through our Etsy, about being in a Fashion Trunk Sale type event on the UNLV campus called Sassy City Chicks
Unfortunately, we only had about a week notice and Sam could not get out of her day job so I went alone with my friend to just check it out so that we would be prepared for the one in February in San Diego. 
Plus, how could I pass up a trip to LAS VEGAS??!
We stayed at New York, New York because it had a SMOKIN deal for mid-week. 


**I didn't feel too comfortable taking pictures in the actual event but I'm sure they are online somewhere!**
The event was really cute though!They had a DJ, cocktails, and plenty of great booths and deals on super cute clothes. I skipped the designer deals because getting to Vegas to check out the event took some savings but I did buy some fun shirts from Jac Vanek, a sassy lady with fierce style. 
Plus, another one that is based off the "Keep Calm" series and it says " Keep Calm and Party On" 
I pretty much love it. 

After the event, CC and I went out for our one night in Vegas and spent it at the club Rok and had a little bit too much fun in a way only Vegas can provide



Lastly, as a second year tradition I helped my good friend turn his office into a Christmas/Holiday Explosion. We played Christmas Music, Elf the Movie, Home Alone 2, and pulled an all-nighter decorating his whole office to surprise his co-workers who walked into a winter wonderland the following morning. 
 One of the things we did was make a fireplace out of cardboard boxes to create a "living room" scene



 Next, we set up the Christmas tree, wrapped some miscellaneous things from around the office and created a "window" that looked out into a snow filled valley that included snow capped mountains and a happy snowman.


Things not pictured(but hopefully I will be in possession of soon!):
*A Christmas Wonderland that we created at the front entrance with snowflakes and twinkling lights
*A sleigh set up for photo ops
*An igloo built over an entire desk
*A "candy cane" room where everything was decorated in red and white

Overall, the night was a huge success and from what I hear his co-workers loved it :)
**Vacation Santa approves of this post.**


We are hoping to have another giveaway very soon just in time for Christmas so stay tuned!
