These past few Thanksgiving day holidays were super low key for us. We didn’t have any family in town and really just spent it the 3 of us. We went to a Thanksgiving buffet and cooked some staple Thanksgiving foods of our own, we did A LOT of Black Friday shopping, we watched the Michigan – Ohio State game (me and the husband went to the respective schools), we put up our Christmas tree and sang and dance to Christmas songs. Oh and I finally got my first caramel brulee latte from Starbucks and it was amazing. And now that it’s back to the grind, I’m already looking forward to Christmas… which we will get to spend with family! :)



Wearing black, red, green, blue and metallics is the perfect color combo for the Christmas holidays, you’ll probably see me wearing it lots coming up.  These dangly earrings from Loopsway are my new fave.  They are the perfect size to make a statement without being too heavy.

    Love this look Sandy! I am having such a hard time with getting into the spirit this season. I think that is because I am still in school and it feels like forever until I get to actually be free!
