Why hello there! The other night Sean and I attended his work Christmas party. You get lovely nighttime photos taken in my entryway, hope you don't mind :)
I love getting to dress up for parties and such, even if they only come around once or twice a year. This time I found a gorgeous blue satin dress at my favorite thrift store. It was $6.99. I was pretty proud of myself! The pictures don't do it justice, but it is definitely one of the best dresses I have ever worn. It is so comfortable, and the excuse to wear heat-to-toe satin doesn't come along as often as one would like. A Christmas party was the perfect occasion! I donned my favorite vintage hat and a red wool coat which belonged to my grandmother, and I was ready to do a bit of socializing. And I do mean 'a bit'. Social functions really wear me out-anyone else with me on that one? At any rate, it was nice to meet Sean's coworkers and be able to put faces to the names of the people he talks about at his job.
Well, I'm having another busy week ahead before Christmas vacation commences! Tonight I'm doing some voice work for a human trafficking awareness project as well as working on tying blankets for project warm-up with my students. Tomorrow I will be shopping for cookie decorating supplies and baking about 5 dozen Christmas cookies for my students' party on Thursday as well as prepping for parents to come visit Kid's Inc.! Friday I work a special day at a different school, and then we have our family Christmas on Saturday! Whew I will be looking forward to a bit of relaxation at the end of this week :)
Have a blessed day!
If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
