arm party gifting.

arm party gifting ...

a fun wrap bracelet (and 10% of the proceeds goes to a charity of your choices listed on their site!) ...
a pretty layering piece for any arm partier ...
how awesome is this guy?
this is a great layering bracelet (i have a little different version of it and it's always a good addition - you can dress it up or down depending on the rest of the party) ...
love this one (i own a few pieces from this line, very wearable, fun and pretty things) ...

tgif.

as i mentioned before, rolf's is the best christmas bar. i stopped by this past weekend (it was too jammed to stay for a drink, boo) but i snapped a few photos ...


since this time of year is huge for parties, you might be piking up some gifts for the host ...

a mustache bottle stopper ...
for the best host ever, this awesome beverage dispenser ...
this perty tray ...
or this cool (and random) bowl ...
an interesting coffee table book ...
and there's always this awkward but hilarious book.

happy gifting!

have a fun weekend!

christmas movies.

i LOVE christmas (as we know by now). and i LOVE christmas movies. 

home alone (see here for the awesome home alone house) ... one of my all time favorite quotes is from this movie - "buzz, your girlfriend, woof" ...


christmas vacation - my sisters and i probably watch this movie 10 million times during the holiday season. it never gets old. even my dad laughs every time. talk about favorite quotes. forget it. my sisters and i can pretty much make a quote from this movie pertain to any life situation ...


the holiday - cheesy, i know. but i'm obsessed with the cottage in the English countryside. ok, and the glamorous house in LA ...


love actually - funny and cute ... and another one set in London (i love London) ...


emmett otter's jug-band christmas - ok, so this might not be a favorite (it's an old movie and a bit weird) but it's a family ... tradition? or something ... i blame lauren :)




a christmas story - poor ralphie ...


elf - i mean ... hilarious


and of course there's rudolph, frosty and the grinch ... all good ones.

i'll definitely be watching these (again) before the end of the month.

"oh here they come, here come the nuts."

happy viewing!
