Two more days until Christmas! I’m taking a quick break from baking, shopping and frolicking around town with my visitors to say hello to you lovely people and give you a little glimpse into how I’m celebrating the holidays. Last night, my sister, her boyfriend and I all headed to Snowflake Lane in downtown Bellevue, a nightly spectacle with dancing toy soldiers, faux snow, musical performers, and a light show. It may be geared towards kids (you can get your picture taken with princesses, penguins, and snowmen), but that certainly didn’t stop us from dancing in the streets along with everyone else. (Fun fact: Snowflake Lane made the Huffington Post’s list of America’s quirkiest holiday traditions!)
Here are a few of my pics from Snowflake Lane, as well as the cheery holiday atmosphere over at my mom’s house. My family has been decorating & wrapping like crazy all weekend, and we are officially ready for Christmas to happen!
What are you guys up to for the holidays? Jules and I will be taking a little break from the blog between Christmas and New Year’s to unwind with our families and eat an unseemly amount of Christmas cookies (and in Jules’ case, road trip across the country), but we’ll be back before you know it! Until we return in 2015, you can follow along with our shenanigans on Instagram (I’m here and Jules is here).
Wishing you the happiest of holidays with the people you love, and cheers to a fabulous New Year!
P.S. Check in tomorrow for a guest post from Jules’ good friend Mollie!
