Christmas is over? Already?

Oh goodness, it feels good to be back here! I hope you all were blessed with family and friend-filled days and lots of gifts and yummy food! This was one of the best Christmases I remember having in a while. This holiday season was devoted strictly to my wonderful family, and it was absolutely perfect!

Remember the storm that came my way a week ago? Well, that storm took out my parents power which didn't come back on until today. At first we were all whining about the power going out and what were we going to do, and me not being able to make it home, blah blah blah. Then my momma said the most beautiful thing. "Maybe this is God's way of slowing us down and reminding us what Christmas is really about..."

Mom, you're exactly right.

So, the power outage turned out to be a blessing in disguise and allowed my family to spend more time together during Christmas. It was wonderful!

It's been a habit for me lately to just post a bunch of stuff at one time. Well, that's what I'm doing again. I'm giving you a complete recap of BeB's Christmas extravaganza! Are you excited? Me too!

 Ok, first the outfits.

This is what I wore for Christmas Eve dinner with my family:

I had been saving these pieces for...well, I don't know what I was saving them for! And it hadn't occurred to me to put them together. The top is a Kristin Davis for Belk and the sweater is a Belk brand too. I wore it with black pants and my zebra flats.

And then on Christmas day we went to my parents' best friends' house. This is what I wore:

The dress is from Belk (I love Belk!). I got the tights in my stocking :) And the necklace is Forever 21 (also in my stocking). The flats are Isaac Mizrahi for Target.

This was me on Christmas morning. One with stocking (thanks, Dad) and one without.

Now, onto the loot- my favorite part! This isn't everything that I got, I just chose a few things to share with you all that I thought you would enjoy...just a little eye candy!

 I got a digital picture frame. Thanks mom and dad!

Two new Willow Tree figurines. Aren't these beautiful?
The mother and daughter is from my momma, and the puppy is from dad.

I got some new clothes from Forever 21.

 Aren't these so fabulous! I die!

I also got some new shoes. The first three were on sale at TJ Maxx (mom did gooood) and the gold ones are from F21.

The jewelry....

And this last one needs no intro....

Dad got a big 'ol hug for this!

I also got a diamond and white gold key necklace. I couldn't get a good picture of it though, dang. And few other things but I won't bore you with that.

The next few pictures are some randoms from our Christmas festivities!

Millie's loot, including a new coat and a Jackie O. sweater complete with pearl buttons :)

We got my cousin a Polo sweater dress. So loved it, to say the least!

Hope you all enjoyed my Christmas recap! So, how was your Christmas? What did you get? New Dior perfume?? New jewelry? I hope so!

So, what's on tap for this week? Well, I have a couple new things that I got for my bedroom that I want to share. And I did a little face-lift in my laundry room that I can't wait for you all to see! And I'm hoping to have another guest post this week! Woo hoo! I'm excited just talking about it!

Finally, I want to say hello to my new followers! Thank you for joining me :)

Ok, lovies, I'm going to eat dinner and then catch up on your lives!

Love to you pretties!

I'm in LOVE with your dress from Belk! I got a Belk gift card for Christmas, and I might just have to go looking for that dress!

So glad you had a wonderful Christmas!

(also, a tip for taking a picture of your necklace, try taking the picture outside, in the sunshine [natural lighting is ALWAYS best] and putting your camera on the macro setting. that should help!)

Wow Julie honey! You scored! I love those clothes from F21, my favorite store, besides Target of course! You look too cute in those outfits, you are so stylish! So glad you had a great Christmas, friend. I agree with your Mama, you definitely were blessed with an opportunity to slow down and appreciate the true meaning of Christmas.

Thanks for your sweet comments on my guest post honey. I really appreciate all the sweet things you say...hope you are having a great week so far! Kori xoxo
