(at this moment...}

this eve before christmas eve, i leave you with a snap from the happiest place on earth. of all the days of the year to go to disneyland, apparently three days before christmas isn't one of them. but go we did on wednesday. to be honest, we were fully aware we were entering the mouth of the beast. thus, we took the snail pace foot traffic and long lines in stride. the kids had a blast and that's all that counts. i feel like everything is really starting to slow down now, allowing us all to take a much needed reprieve to savor life. will you all be taking time off next week? bloggers, will you be posting? i think it might be fun to talk next week about the best of 2011 and goals/wishes/resolutions for 2012. what do you think? you in? or i could save it for the following week. let's play it by ear...

until then, merry christmas everyone! i wish for you all peace, happiness, and a whole lotta love. and, by love, i mean lots of gifts. (i kid, i kid.) in all seriousness, let me just take a second to sincerely thank you all for making this blogging journey so fulfilling. this community is so supportive, positive, uplifting, and engaging; it never ceases to amaze me. my cup runneth over and i am grateful. let's, all of us together, make 2012 another amazing year. cheers!!

  1. I'm so jealous you got to go to Disneyland, even if it was a bad idea in the end, haha. I've only ever been to Disneyworld, twice, when I was a kid. I don't remember the exact level of chaos, but I'm sure it was less in the summer than at Christmas. I'm glad your lil ones had fun :)

    I'm around next week, blogging away as usual. My office will be totally dead so I will have a lot of time to think about goals and resolutions for 2012. I think you should post next week!

  3. @ERIN - Now you've got me on the hook. ;) Let's do this! Well, if you ever visit SoCal, you've got to come to the og Disneyland. While you're here, I guess you should see LA, too.

    @LAUREN - Thank you so much, my friend. Happy to be continuing this journey with you in 2012. Yay for Viva Glam! Ok, I'm curious, how are Viva Glam and Truly Red different? How are you liking Viva?

  4. Truly is definitely more scarlet, but the woman at Nordstroms had me try on Bare Baby (a Nordstroms-only brand of Laura Mercier) lip gloss on top of it, and it's really nice. Jury is out as to which I like more!

    Off to study my Cup of Jo hair tutorial!

  6. Your day at Disneyland really sounds like it was fun. Might've been crowded but when you're w/the one's you love it doesn't matter, does it? Wishing you and the family a wonderful Christmas. We are hosting dinner for 20 tonight–so my hands will be full (one w/a wine glass;) but I'm looking forward to it:) Hope to see you plenty more in 2012!!! xoxo

  7. @LAUREN - Dying to know which Cup of Jo style you tried. Spill when you get a chance.

    @NOREEN - I think you're right, next week is a good time. I love the tradition you and your husband have.

    @HAPPENSTANCE - Hope you and the fam are having a wonderful Christmas. Hope the dinner for 20 (!) went off without a hitch.

    Cheers and Merry Christmas to you all!!
