Mandatory Christmas Recap Post

Since I skipped this yesterday, here is my mandatory Christmas recap post for you. Via Instagram, of course! You can find me on Instagram here {nikkib918}.
Christmas Eve was wonderful! I spent my day shopping around town getting last minute gifts - Target, Marshall's... the Liquor Store... and didn't really have to suffer through crowds. I love shopping for others. Santa was on a budget this year though so that tends to put a damper on things. Family time on Christmas Eve was helped. Christmas Day kinda got the best of me, but in my defense I had major PMS and the timing was just awful with my first single girl holiday.
Even though I was a little down, I still know that I have many blessings to be thankful for this holiday season. I am thankful for my family, my mom's good spirits despite her health concerns, for good food because I sure did eat enough of it. {Hello 5 lbs back on my hips!} But honestly, I'm glad it's over. I'm very much looking forward to moving on into the new year!

Thankful for BFFs this year!

The only boy who will ever fully have my heart, my bro!

Tilly's Christmas PJs

My darlin little cousin


Books I got from my Gran Gran - self help at it's finest and I can't wait to dig in!

Awwww....You are so adorable and photogenic! Keep your head up because things will slowly but surely get easier! I've been through a divorce (after almost 4 years of marriage) and the first holiday alone was a tough one for sure! I think I sat at home by myself and spent the day in bed crying! I'm with you though....The Christmas holiday was great but I'm glad it's over and ready to move on to the new year!!!

Lots of Love,
