OOTD // Merry Christmas!

Wow, I can hardly believe it. Today is Christmas!

We spend so much time waiting and counting down to this holiday. But honestly? Why is it so important?

I hope you all remember the real reason for Christmas.
Today we celebrate how God sent His only son to save a sinful world. What great love that is!

Anyway, I felt I should talk about the real reason for Christmas, because it's so easy to get caught up in the thrill of receiving gifts, getting new stuff, going to parties, and remembering everything but the true meaning of Christmas. 

Okay, now on to the outfit post. ;)

Outfit Details:   Sweater: (thrifted) Old Navy   Skirt: Wet Seal   Tights: Wal-Mart   Boots: Kmart   Necklace: garage sale

And at this point, my bun fell out. Figures. I never could fight my hair. So side-pony it is.

Christmas is always a simple affair at my house. But I still like dressing up a little for the day.

So, you are probably wondering what I got, right?
The truth is, not much, but I could not feel more satisfied or happy today. It finally hit how it's not about presents, but about how we as a family gather together and find a way to remind ourselves how much we love each other.

However, I did get some nice things ;)
Like a greatly wanted cheetah scarf that I've been searching for forever! And a sweet t-shirt which I'll show on here later on. Plus, some cash for shopping. My favorite would be the envelop filled with pen caps. Because you see, I have a horrible habit of gnawing on those little plastic caps, and my dad has too many pens with chewed caps. He found a way to solve my bad habit. Haha, when I opened it, I started laughing so hard I was crying! xD

Nothing like sharing moments like that with your family. :)

Thanks to every one who has taken the time to read my blog. Every comment and follower makes me so happy! :)

Merry Christmas everyone, I hope you're surrounded by loved ones and have a wonderful day.
