Christmas Eve Eve

Hat: Forever 21
Cardigan: Gap
Dress: ASOS
Socks: Sock Dreams
Clogs: Steve Madden 'Empiire'
I almost died in these shoes, but they're worth it. I am hoping a gel insert will lessen the wrath of the Kilimanjaro instep. I really like how they are a clog/platform/oxford in one. A little trendy, but I think their old ladyness makes them a classic. To me, anyway. Now if I can only survive them! These shoes are like a Hitchcock movie, I'm telling ya.

I am done wrapping Darin's presents! My next project is to fix some shingles on Ro's dollhouse and stain the floors so they look like hardwood. I will get to wallpapering and painting after Christmas so that Ro can help me pick the colors and patterns. I can't wait to see her face when she sees her new-to-her dollhouse! What gift are you most excited to give this year? Sound off in the comments!

  1. That last photo just melted my heart.

    I am very excited to give my brother his gift. It's a coupon book--- one free taco bell meal, one "pick-you-up-from-school-before-math" pass, one Nancy Drew game of your choice, I buy, etc. :D

    You are a gem.

  4. Our son is obsessed with Batman and loves Legos, but Lego discontinued their Batman series. I found Batman and Robin figures (and paid through the nose for them!) and my husband custom built a Lego Batmobile. I cannot WAIT to see Sam's face when he opens the box.

    This is also our daughter's very first Christmas, and I am beyond excited to see how she'll react to the whole affair. (Plus, her grandparents got her a really awesome trike.)

  5. I'm excited to give my husband his gift (a mini wooden chess set) because it is the first year of us being "together" (today is our 1-year wedding anniversary, but we've been a couple for over 2 years) that we have bought each other gifts.

    Mele Kalikimaka, as they say here in Hawaii! (it means Merry Christmas :D)

  14. Oh wow you look so elegant! I hate wearing heels, I mean they make me feel so badass and confident, but oh the pain. I'm impressed you're surviving those shoes, but yes, inserts are a good call. :P Merry Christmas!
