On the Go

I took each and every single piece of advice given to me yesterday about the dress. I actually ended up going to Target and buying that dress. It was too cute, not to get it. Even if I don't wear it for that Christmas party, I will wear it somewhere. So the hunt continues. I don't want to wear a LBD because I have the feeling most of the women will be in either pant suits or business casual. I still have a few days before the panic of finding something to wear sets in. 

Umm...am I the only one who feels like they've been going non stop for weeks now. I think it all started the week before Thanksgiving. Between work, hanging out with friends, family gatherings, holiday parties and the crazy shopping I feel like I haven't had one minute to rest. I'm not seeing it slow down till January either....

I do have a few things to show for being on the go.
-Christmas Cards mailed.
-All but 1 person to buy for still.
-Tree's decorated.
-All presents wrapped.

Wednesday I'm going ice skating and I can't wait! I think it's such a fun thing to do this time of the year! Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday! I'll be posting pictures tomorrow of my newly updated, Wonka tree! I found doughnut ornaments...amoung other cute candy/food items!

You're right. You will look good in that dress. Even if you wear something else to the party.

I also feel like I've been going nonstop.

If you think most of the ladies will be going business casual, then maybe some black slacks with a sparkly top? It's not too dressy but still lets you get the holiday sparkle going.

Kris said...

I've felt this way too. Unfortunately I did not get my xmas cards out yet. Don't think it's going to happen. Darn!

Mandy said...

I completely agree! I cannot wait until New Year's is over so I can finally get back into my routine and relax a little!

rena said...

I totally understand about going non-stop, I just want 2010 to be here already! ;)

KatlynAnn said...

Ok how long do you leave your tree(s) up?? I know you put it up in September! lol

Sara said...

I think it's great that you still got the dress. It looks like something you'll get a lot of wear out of. Hopefully, you find something you adore for the party.

So I'm behind in reading a little. About the dress, I liked it but not quite party material I don't think. What about black pants or shirt with a bright, bold sweater or top with some chunky jewelry. Just an idea!

And normally this time for me is crazy but for some reason I'm totally laid back and not dressing at all. And the first gift has yet to be bought. :)

Amie said...

That dress was cute, and I'm sure you'll find a perfect time to wear it.

I do feel you on the non-stop thing, I simply cannot wait until the holidays are over so I can sit down and relax. Hope you have fun ice skating!

Abbie said...

2 more days of work and then I will have a glorious 2 week break from the "non-stop"! Holy Lord I cannot wait!

I hope the holidays treat you well my friend:)

Katie said...

I got your card! Super cute :)

And I feel like I have been non-stop for a few weeks now and I hate it!

Pamela said...

I feel I've been going nonstop too!! Thankfully after Friday I'm off work for two weeks and cannot wait! Skating sounds fun and relaxing. I haven't been for years! Have fun!

I'm right there with you about going nonstop, I feel like the past few weeks have just been a rollercoaster of one event after another.

I don't know if you'll see this comment...but...I work at a law firm and we just had our Christmas party. I say go with a dress, but that dress might just be too casual. I actually showed up too casual, but I was late and didn't care at that point. Most people wear a dress or business casual and lots of sweaters. I have a red and white striped sweater that never fails at Christmas parties. Maybe a satin red shirt and some dark dressy jeans or even slacks?
