I love this time leading up to the holidays. Especially now that I don't work in retail, I actually get to enjoy it. Also, this year, for the first time since university, I've the whole friggin' week off. I'm so happy.
One of my favorite things is the Sephora holiday catalogue. I love drooling over, er, almost everything. The Sephora Collection Ultimate Blockbuster 2009 kills me. As a painter, any palette is alluring, but this is truly the ultimate. MMMMMmmmmm, mama like-y.
Also, I've started making lists for Yule, both grocery and gift lists. I just can't wait.
Something else I love and totally evokes the feelings of the season, is the 1951 movie 'A Christmas Carol' with Alastair Sim. It makes me so happy. Denise has the same love of ' The Sound of Music'. It's a great time at our house.
The maybe oddest thing that I'm looking forward to is the dark chocolate coloured foil balls. I get them at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, and they don't have any dairy in them. The holidays really mean chocolate wrapped in foil. This is bliss.
