Holy crap there she is!

I hope this (significantly delayed...) update finds you all well.  As you can all imagine, holiday time is always crazy in the retail world, so I've been pretty busy between work and school and trying to find the perfect presents for the boyfriend... (I think I've done okay--although he keeps shaking the packages and has guessed at what THREE of them are already!  Next time I'm going to wrap up random items to throw him off, or do the much loved box-inside-a-box-inside-a-box...)

I am uber excited for Christmas, as usual.  It's definitely my favorite holiday, and there's always tons of things I want to do.  (I am determined to get to The Real Bedford Falls one year--this is unfortunately not the year!)  I'm a totally sappy Christmas person, and you'd better believe I've been listening to Christmas music since Thanksgiving.  My boyfriend knows this, and knows me pretty well--this gem of an early Christmas gift arrived for me the other day...
It's the She & Him Christmas album, on vinyl.  Exactly what I wanted (and didn't put on my Christmas list!).  It's been in heavy rotation as you can imagine.

My stocking is hung, and next weekend my boyfriend and I are going to see The Nutcracker.  I've been wanting to see The Nutcracker around the holidays for YEARS, and I've always missed out--but this year Groupon popped up with a buy one-get one coupon and I couldn't pass it up.  Two seats for $25? I'll take it!

The only thing left, besides actual Christmas itself, is another viewing of It's A Wonderful Life (one of my top favorite movies) and a trip to Bright Nights!   I tend to wait on Bright Nights until it's actually snowing, although this year I might have to suck it up and go sans snow--it's been unseasonably warm this winter so far.

My college packet is due in 6 days, so don't expect any updates til then!  Catch you all later :)

It's always nice to find someone who loves Holiday music as much as I. Usually I am met with groans when I express my excitment that 103.3 has started playing non-stop. Actually, one of the first songs I heard this morning was a She & Him holiday tune!

I went to Bright Nights last year (my first time) and loved it. I also used to love going to The Enchanted Villiage in Boston (are you familiar with it?)

I went to the Nutcracker last year as well and then once when I was little. This year I'm going to the Slutcracker and I'm super excited :-D
