Winter Wonderland

I had the greatest Christmas ever- I spent a few days out in a beautiful cabin with my family this year and it was snowing! 

We went sledding, tubing, and even made a really deformed snowman. I discovered I was pretty much a master (hehe) at the game Apples to Apples and I think I ate at least one tamale every night before I went to bed ... in other words, I had a really amazing time and I can't wait to do it again next year!
The cabin was so cozy and was decorated very Christmas-y...
Everyone was required to dress up for the Christmas Eve dinner, so I decided to pack this vintage mini dress I picked up at the flea market not too long ago.
The dress has an amazing silhouette- puffed shoulder sleeves and a nipped waist!
I hope everyone had a beautiful Christmas!

I'm really excited to be with my best friends (both are in town yay) and get ready to ring in the new year!

Aren't you freezing in your Christmas even dress? it's beautiful and you look amazing but wow, I would be so cold.

Oh and I was so happy to see you all bundled up and warm in the other photo. Sometimes I feel so bundled in my winter clothes that I feel glamorous is impossible. You give me hope :-P

PS. I mentioned you on my top 10 blogs of 09
