The Holidays

Happy Friday all.  Can I hear a big sigh of relief?   aaaahhhhh.... Oh that was just me.  Well phew, Tae is out of school for Christmas break.  In France the students take a 2 week break every 6 weeks and I have come to know and love those breaks.  It is just enough for some hang out time with Tae and no waking up early, and yet also enough time that I am ready to send him back to school after those two weeks are up.  

For those of you who aren't following me on Twitter, my parents are here!!  I am so excited they will be here for a little less than a month.  I am so very blessed to have a great relationship with both my parents and I love that they are visiting.  My sons also love them to death, which might be an understatement, they are like rock stars in this house.  We are also heading to Nice, France for Christmas and I couldn't be more stoked about that!  I have never been to the south and I cannot wait to experience it.
And to top it off, husband is DONE with basketball after his game tonight.  Well, for the holiday break, anyway.  I love it when he has time off because the rest of the season he is so stinkin' busy it is like he works more than a 9 to 5.  (Naps are included in this busyness. Athletes and athlete wives understand)  It will be nice to take a lovely family vacation next week to another part of the world we haven't seen!  I hope to get some awesome pictures!
This outfit: Shirt: Zara // Jeans: Old Navy // Earrings: Target // Necklace: Gift // Headband: made myself // Pictures: c/o my 4 year old.

What are your plans for the holidays?  Any awesome traditions you have coming up?  I would love to hear them!

Oh and if you have any extra time, you can check out my post over at the SITS Girls about Holiday Hairstyles!

I like the idea of 2 weeks off every 6 weeks. Is school year-round there? I'm glad your parents are there to spoil you and your boys. Enjoy Nice. (I think I was there for a day when my daughter was in high school.)

Can't wait to see pictures of Nice! We are spending Friday and Saturday next weekend at my inlaws and then the traditional Christmas Day evening with my side of the family. Can't wait for Santa to visit Lil' Hunkie...he's been loving everything! One day last week when I got him out of bed he was doing his normal chatter and I heard "Santa Cause. Is Coming." !! :)Can't wait! Have a great time! And Merry Christmas friend!
