it's beginning to look a lot like christmas

that song has been playing in my head all morning, as it is pouring down the most beautiful snow here in small town, va.  the beau and i had to walk to work this morning because we couldn't get the cars out of the driveway.  but my office has a window that over looks a creek, so i've got a lovely view of the winter magic taking place.  the puppy boy was absolutely chomping at the bit to get out and play in it this morning.



we FINALLY finished our christmas shopping.  for the beau, i got him this luggage, engraved with his initials.  his current luggage options consist of a backpack {too small} and a duffle bag from his college lax days {too big}.  i also got him smartwool socks, because he has been begging for some for at least the past two-three months.  i got my mom a set of white porcelain pasta bowls, since she requests something new for her kitchen/entertaining stockpile every year.  my sister and i bought my dad one of those outdoor fire pits.  their neighbors got one earlier this fall and apparently, dad has had a major case of green with envy.  my sister gets a custom b-more ravens t-shirt.  for the beau's parents, i did an "evening by the fire" theme gift, which includes a big, fuzzy blanket, homemade hot cocoa mix, and a sack of fatwood.  and we got the beau's nieces a digital drum set {for the youngest} and a DIY personalized jewelry kit {for the oldest}.  there are lots of pretty packages under our tree and i can't wait to open the ones for me and give the rest away to the people we love!

i leave you with these gorgeous chanel shoes that i am lusting after for my wedding...


stay warm, darlings!

ADORE those shoes! And enjoy the snow, doll... I cannot believe that there is so much snow down south and none in New England!

You're brave. I want to post all of my gifts for sister, BF, parents, but I'm afraid they'll pick this week to randomly read my blog...
