It's 2014 and I Disappeared for 3 Weeks.

Hello Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Holiday and a Happy New Years! Things have been quite a whirlwind for Justin and I, and I am excited to share all of the fun things with you! I decided a few weeks back that it would be best for me to just focus on the time that I had with my family and have no distractions during Christmas, so I do apologize for my lack of posting.  But I'm back and ready to hit the ground running! 

For the past few years, my girlfriends and I have gotten together to celebrate as a group but with the new tradition of Friendsgiving, we figured it would be appropriate to celebrate Friendsmas.  The plan was for all of the girls to get together but with some bad weather that came in, only three of us got together, but it was still a ton of fun.

We made some homemade crock pot hot chocolate which was delicious! I had a recipe from Pinterest that I wanted to try, but it only made two cups so we ended up improvising and it turned out delicious {especially since we added some Bailey's and Marshmallows to our drinks}.  We also made some delicious Reindeer Chow! If you have had puppy chow before, then you know what Reindeer Chow is! It's just puppy chow with M&Ms.

While our hot chocolate was cooking in the crock pot, we exchanged gifts with each other and I am excited about everything that I got!

Sarah got me a cute pair of flats and a homemade bracelet! The shoes are a beautiful royal blue and I cannot wait to generate a whole outfit around them! Danielle made me some boot socks, wrist warmers and a beautiful infinity scarf.  All of which you can see in the picture below.  She also got me a Smash Book.

I have never heard of Smash Book before, but it seems to be pretty fun.  It is essentially a scrap book for a busy person! You can get tons of stickers and other fun inserts and you just smash them into your book.  I'm really looking forward to working on my SMASHbook in 2014 and filling it with tons of fun knickknacks throughout the year.  Plus, it's something we will be doing together! 

Check out this video to get a better idea on what it is! 

Overall, Friendsmas was a blast and I cannot wait to have many more Friendsmases to come!

What traditions do you celebrate with your friends around the Holidays?
