High Five For Friday: Prepping for the Holidays

High Five For Friday: Prepping for the Holidays

1. Dresses, Dresses & More Dresses

I may have went a tad overboard with dress shopping on Cyber Monday. I ordered a two dresses from Lulus; one for New Years Eve and one for Christmas. The Christmas one is a tad tight, so I’ve been making an effort to go to the gym. The New Years Eve dress has to be altered a bit, but I love it. It’s a fake wrap dress and the deep V it creates is just too loose and deep. So it’s currently at the tailors. I also ordered a vacation dress from Tulle, which is supposed to be arriving today. I’m excited!

2. I Get to Start Packing

So I’m incredibly weird. I’m leaving for a 3 week vacation on Tuesday and I cannot wait to start packing. I’ve told myself that I can start packing this weekend, so I’m super pumped. I’ve got new luggage to try out and I’m just really looking forward to it. Strange, I know.

3. I Got Around to Mailing My Christmas Cards

I’ve been putting off sending out my Christmas cards… I’ve been meaning to do it, I’ve just been super busy. But this week, I finally managed to address and mail them all!

4. I Somehow Found the Time to Read Some Books

I managed to read not one, not two, but THREE books this week. For those of who who don’t know, I used to be a full-fledged book blogger. I’d read at least 150 books a year. Life got in the way and my reading habits have slowed down considerably. But, 3 books! yay!

5. I’ve Also Been Rocking it Out at the Gym

On top of reading my butt off, I’ve found the time to get to gym. It’s been go, go, go. Unsurprisingly I’ve also managed to come down with a cold. Spreading myself too thin, right before my vacation. Of course. Because traveling is way more fun when you’re sick.
