new old fashioned way

song of the day: 'rockin around the christmas tree'
almost totally done with my christmas shopping!!!! i'll be very thankful when everything i bought on etsy gets here and when i finish up the last two gifts. then it'll just be smooth sailing til christmas.
matt's sister and her family are coming over tonight for some 'damn hot peppers' and presents. if you're wondering why i'm cursing it's because that's the name of the dish that matt's making. it's sooo good. he cooked the peppers last night and the house still smells like them (yum). it has bell peppers and jalepenos and this time we added serrano peppers. and they cook down with some tomatoes and then you pour the cooled mixture over some browned potatoes and eggs. top with cheese and serve with cold beer. it's amazingly good and perfect on a cold night. i must remember to take pictures to share with you guys. that's something i need to work on, taking more random photos. and it starts tonight!

Gosh you are just lovely. I adore that second pic of you. And I adore this outfit. And I adore how you have been using Christmas songs for your titles!

Oh, this sweater looks so incredibly warm! I love the scarf you wore with it!

I'll be happy when the stuff I bought from Etsy gets here as well. I think that's the only frustrating part about Etsy, the shipping varies SO much from shop to shop, I had to always keep track of when the last day to purchase things was!

that sounds absolutely delicious! I've been putting off getting a snack, but I think it's gonna have to happen now :P

That red plaid scarf is just the perfect holiday touch! It brings it all together. You look wonderful.
