Winter Break.....Please come sooner! Thanks!


Merry Christmas Eve peeps! Here are a couple of pics from the LESGC Holiday Crafty Chicas event. My mentee wasn't able to meet, so I was paired up with a new mentee for the interim moment and had such a blast. We decorated Christmas bulbs to look like reindeers, made clove scented orange ornaments and decorated felt Christmas trees with buttons and glitter! I have to admit whenever I do crafting projects, I get so consumed with the process. I definitely want to integrate doing more crafting projects into my life for the New Year!

Tonight, Jason and I are celebrating Christmas Eve by getting dinner at the Strip House and then tomorrow morning I'll be flying into SFO to visit my family for the holidays. I am so blessed that this year I was able to see my family more than twice in one year- which is the usual for not living in the Bay. But before dinner and hitching a ride to JFK, I have to pack the rest of my ish.....since we're moving uptown! This weekend has literally been such a drag. When it comes to packing, especially when it's cold outside and Netflix is calling my name, I just want to sit on my ass all day and do nothing. If anything, I'll just pray for the willingness to pack and really give away the clothes I do not wear (I am such a hoarder when it comes to clothes)!

Anyways, just wanted to drop a line before the holidays commence and wish you all Season's Greetings, safe travels, Happy New Year, Happy Hanukkah, etc.but before I leave, check out some of the sites below:
