Merry Christmas

Ugly Sweater Party

Christian hosted an ugly sweater party that was in support of helping out the less fortunate for the Christmas season. Anyone attending the party was encouraged to bring an unwrapped gift to donate to a children’s hospital. Those who brought a gift was entered into a drawing to win a gift card! Christian is always holding some festive party in support of a good cause! I’m always encouraged by his efforts in that! Thanks Christian!

Kevin & Me

At the Ugly Sweater Party, I was able to catch up with some old friends who I had not seen for years! I have to say that a good amount of people were dressed up festively! By the way, there was an ugly sweater competition. Armando who dressed up as a Christmas tree won! Congratulations Armando!

Me, Ugly Sweater Tree, & a real Christmas tree

If you’re curious about my outfit especially the ugly sweater part, let me tell you that it’s partially homemade! The collared shirt is from Old Navy and the sweater itself is from my sister’s closet. To be more specific, it’s from Anthropologie. The tree was made by me! Materials from Walmart. The tree was on a different sweater from last year, but it felt apart. So I got a Christmas yarn and looped it into the tree to make it into a necklace! Lastly, the vest is from Gap. Oh and the headband is from H&M. Next year I’m going to try to have a sweater that lights up! I need to step up my ugly sweater game!

Thanks again Christian for putting this altogether to help the children at the Saint Jude’s Research Hospital! God bless!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I never got the chance to say this. But. Merry Christmas and happy new year, friends!

This is a picture of my little cousin from Korea. My mom bought a onesie for this cutie. My aunt thought that it was a casual outfit so she almost took him to the market in his onesie! Close call, close call.

I’m actually not sure if onesies exist in Korea or in Asia.

Hope everyone had a blessed Christmas in celebrating the birth of Jesus and a great start in the new year!

New years resolution anyone? I have some goals for the new year that I took note of mentally. I only took brief mental notes just because I usually don’t really believe in new years resolution. But. Somehow this year, I felt more compelled than ever before to have some goals set. They’re just not set in stone because I still have yet to figure out the logistics. When making goals, you have to have a plan! Perhaps I will share some of my new years resolutions in the near future when I have them figured out.

If you have some new years resolutions this year, I wish you the best of luck! Don’t forget to be strategic, realistic, and optimistic! Go you!

Is Christmas Here Yet?

As always, one YouTube video after another led me to this beautiful duet singing “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”. The acoustic and the soulful voices makes me excited for the cold weather and Christmas. Let’s wear our scarves and gloves, huddle around an imaginary camp fire, and watch this YouTube video on repeat together:

You might be thinking that it’s too early to sing any Christmas songs, but I’m only showing this to you to prepare you for the holiday season!

Happy early holiday cheers to you!
