Wednesday Walkabout!

Happy day after Christmas! It has been a non-stop, crazy weekend and then some. I have lots of pictures to post, but I'll try to do them in a few different posts as to not overload everyone. I know it's been a while since I posted anything of substance so here is a little summary of what's been going on since I arrived in CT last Thursday.

 First things first. On Friday morning, after my dental cleaning, I decided it was time to dye my hair back to au natural. My highlights have been growing out quite a bit and I was tired of the pseudo-ombre look. Color before/after (I look so much better with a tan):

 I also had a haircut scheduled for Saturday morning and wanted to get the color out of the way before my cut. Cut before/after (apparently I get paler by the day up north):

After getting all prettied up, I needed to finish Christmas shopping. I just love all the Christmas decorations at my home mall, it's over-the-top compared to back home in Charleston.

I also picked up a little something for myself, to always keep my sailor close to my heart.

Another reminder that I am back home in Connecticut, I saw this in the TJ Maxx parking lot. God bless those children and their families. Pay it forward.

On Sunday, I took the train into the city with one of my besties to see the tree in Rockefellar Center and have a scrumptious lunch at one of my favorite places, the Todd English Food Hall at the Plaza Hotel.


So many yummy things to choose from!

Chicken parm sliders (minus the one I already ate) and parmesan fries (not pictured), YUM!

I spent Christmas Eve with my goddaughter, Madelyn, and her family. Sadly, I don't have any pictures, but I do plan on getting over to see them again before I leave.


Christmas day was spent at home with my mom, dad, and brother. We had snow overnight and I was lucky to wake up to a white Christmas!

Mom's gift to Gunner:

Delicious treats by my momma and I:


We opened gifts, had dinner with my uncle and grandma then afterwards went to visit my grandpa in the hospital. He was in good spirits and ate his entire turkey dinner. I also just got word today that he was released from the hospital and is back home which is very good news :)

S comes to CT on Saturday and I.can't.wait. I don't want to rush this vacation, but I just can't wait to see my sailor and celebrate Christmas with him<3

From what I've read so far today, sounds like everyone has had a great holiday. Hopefully I'll be back into regular blogging mode again soon.

If you are stopping by for Wednesday Walkabout, don't forget to say hello!

Ahhh West Farms! Doesn't the Santa-land look so cool this year? I went to a Christmas party for the production company that created it and their workshop was AMAZING! And I love your haircut AND that pet bandana AND your Christmas tree AND that anchor (I have an anchor tattoo). All around I love that you're enjoying CT!

Stopping by from the Walkabout. Looks like you had a great Christmas! I am jealous of your white Christmas. I live in South GA and don't think I have ever seen a white Christmas. :(
