the day after Christmas (another party). day one-hundred-thirty-nine.

Happy Boxing Day! (and we digress) I had been waiting for holiday parties to wear this amazing vintage Italian wool green dress, some of the pictures just didn't turn out that great but i used them anyway! This day we had our progressive dinner party that is a holiday tradition for our family friends. We all host a course of a meal and go from house to house, when I was a kid we were not invited but now we are older and the friend base has dwindled. We only did two houses this year but I hope some day in the future to host my own course! My mom did appetizers/dinner and my favorite 'aunt' and 'cousins' hosted dessert! It was so fun. Photos were tough to take because I didn't get ready until 'later' (this is like 4:30 eastern time..ridiculous). So bear with them!

Our lovely spread at my home!

Hope everyone is continuing to have an amazing holiday! I got my job and will be starting on the 7th of January so I am trying to relax as much as possible (and catch up on the blog/projects until then!) I am really pumped and an official shout out will likely come in a few days but I just couldn't hold it in!
