Brain Dump V

Happy Holidays! It's a bit of a delayed greeting. I'm having some connectivity issues and we've been busy enjoying the long weekend. Food and drinks on repeat plus a few gifts.

I'm brain purging today.

She looks so different. Hard to believe it was only a year ago.

We didn't buy gifts for V this year again. She received numerous gifts from family and friend and we thought that was enough.

The time sure does fly by. I can't believe we're on V's second Christmas and she's 16 months as of tomorrow.

I got a fancy new phone for Christmas and I have been stunting in the house since. I have a pay as you go plan so I will be just pretending I'm doing cool social media stuff with it for now.

Ahh velour!!
I went in search of the "special" Santa and Santaland at Macy's. I was so curious about it after Quiana mentioned it. V was stressing though so we didn't make it into Santaland this year but next year. I shall plan instead of going the day before Christmas Eve after doing a bit of shopping in a hot store with tired, cranky baby.

I nursed V on a crowded "L" train while wearing a turtleneck tunic. Again poor planning. Hot hysterical tired baby and me in a non breastfeeding friendly outfit.

My taste buds have changed and I am now more of a white wine fan.

My Christmas polish lasted a whole 2 days! After I applied the base coat I realized I have been using the wrong base coat and that's why I've been having so much chippage the past few polish changes. I haven't been using the Orly one.

I call these my falalalala nails.

I'm signed up for a Nice! Shopping Made Easy House Party in January. I want to do a crafting theme for purely selfish reasons. I need to crank out a project.

V has for the most part given up her 2nd nap and will only take 1 nap while nursing so I've lost my break time during the day. No more showers alone but I get to sleep and cuddle for an hour or two.

Speaking of nursing..the end does not look near.

What's on your mind?

We didn't buy Gavin any gifts, either. Well, except for an umbrella stroller (not really a gift for him, though he will use it) for our upcoming travels! I don't blame you for skipping gifts this year, especially since family seems to fill in the gaps just fine!

@Nilsa @ SoMi Speaks I wonder how long we can keep it going before they kiddos start to notice. :)
