The Tiny Heart: High Five For Friday: Christmas Edition!

High Five For Friday: Christmas Edition!

1. On Christmas Eve I finally got around to giving myself a holiday manicure! 



2. I participated in a Secret Santa exchange with some of the bloggers I met back in November, organized by Alex. My Secret Santa, aka Melissa got me a beautiful Ralph Lauren scarf! My hubby and his family decided we weren't doing gifts this year so it was nice to have one gift to open on Christmas!

3. We wound up hosting Christmas dinner for 8. (I didn't find out till Christmas Eve that so many people were coming!). I am thankful it all came together, the food was delicious (can you say food coma?), and we now have TONS of leftovers.

 4. One of our guests made cake balls. Chocolate covered pumpkin cake and white chocolate red velvet. Holy wow, they were amazing. If I wasn't so stuffed from the dinner, I would've eaten the whole plate!

5. I won this adorable "ugly" Christmas sweatshirt from a giveaway hosted by Kym. As soon as everyone left, I put this cozy sweatshirt on and parked myself on the couch!
