Pretty Pretty Princess

How's this for a super fancy party outfit?
Or a Pretty Pretty Princess Dress?
(Come on now, you know if you grew up in America you played that game as a child hehe)

Sparkle and shine

Fancy shmancy eh?
I've never worn anything so sparkly & shiny, but I think that's what made this dress stand out to me. 
It's a little pageant queen,
a little princessy,
even a little mermaidy,
and a lot of glam.
In conclusion, I like.

(Thanks for the fun sparkle & shine theme Alison)

Soooo, today is my last day of work for two weeks.
Hip hip hoorayyy

Last year at this time we had just closed escrow and were packing up our apartment. As you can tell from the last few home renovation posts our home was a disaster when we bought it. We spent many months just making the house liveable, and even lived with contractors for a few months.
Honestly last December, January, and March are a blur. I don't really remember much of last year's holidays, but I do remember that I was stressed. Very, very, VERY stressed. 
So stressed that I lost about 15 pounds in one month... yes, but that's a whole another blog post in itself hehe
Our house is finally coming together, and it's such a good feeling.

Anyway, I'm so thankful for these next few weeks...
Thankful I can relax in a sweet little house next to the beach,
Thankful that I can relax in this house with my boy,
Thankful that I get to celebrate Hanukkah with my friends and family,
and just thankful for some (crossing my fingers) calm in my life. 
(and hoping I get to see lots and lots of pretty Christmas lights)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

oh yay! congrats on having a WAY less stressful year.. personally, I tend to put ON weight when I'm stressed (you lucky little devil) but to each his own... this dress is AMAZING.. I would wear it just to vacuum the house in, it's so fabulous.. and to answer your question, Crazy Stupid Love was perfect- you should watch it.. it was pretty good. and ryan gosling is just unREAL..
