This is what I wore for our family's Christmas Eve dinner. Yum! My husband made roast and yams and I made the mashed potatoes and my mom made everything else.. hehe ;) Hope you all had a great Christmas!! My husband and I were able to skype with his family in California. It was our first time using skype. I can't believe we haven't used it before...

I'm not a fan of jewelry, but when I saw that Emily from Le Quaintrelle was giving it away, I had to have it. It is SO gorgeous!! I love it's imperfect circle and the different colors. Definitely a statement piece!

See all that snow in the background? It's all gone now. The rain washed it away! I normally don't like the cold but seeing all that snow outside made me want to go out and build a snowman! I guess I'll have to wait until I get back to Utah.

    The rain washed away almost all of the snow here too. It's actually rather sad to look outside and not see mounds of snow anymore.

  69. Simple and sweet.

    But me I love jewelry. It was trait I acquired later in life. Hope you had a good xmas.

    ReplyDelete
  70. My wife is like you--she's not a big fan of jewelry, except for a few pieces w/sentimental attachments. We still haven't used skype, our families all lives too close! =)

    Our snow in DC all melted in the rain that passed through on Christmas night.

    PS - That's a nice outfit. I hope it wasn'y too cold out there.
