Last weekend before Christmas | Thriftanista in the City


Last weekend before Christmas

The weekend before Christmas is here and I'm looking forward to prepping for the holiday and accomplishing everything on my to-do list:

V writing out her Christmas List

Christmas Holiday To-Do List

watch all of my all time favorite Christmas movies.

Violet and Santa at Macy's Santaland

eat lots of cookies and candy canes

pop into the thrift store briefly and hide the stuff I want to put in my bag at the $10 bag sale at Unique happening the day after Christmas

decorate our very first Christmas tree

wash the locs and do pipe cleaner curls (last time was over 2 year ago!)

Pipe cleaner curls on locs circa 2010

wash Violet's hair *whimpers*

listen to This Christmas (Donny Hathaway version only) repeatedly

watch Violet's reaction to the decked out tree (hope it's more than a blank stare)

V and Santa at Macy's

dine out

drink several glasses of wine, liqueurs, and cocktails of various colors.

finish up my Christmas DIY gifts

Leopard Print Infinity Scarf one tell my Mama what her gift is
write my business plan (serious procrastination going on)

meet with accountability buddy to share my business plan

plan and buy groceries for the Christmas Eve meal I'm hosting for family and friends

experiment with new makeup techniques. I'm so inspired after watching Manolos, Manicures and This Mom's 5 minute face tutorial.

If I don't talk to you before the holiday, have a Happy Christmas! I'm sure I'll be back on Monday   unless the end of the world did in fact happen.
