Bring Out The Dogs

Hello there! Friday night Bob and I went out for a couple of drinks, and yesterday I ran a couple of errands, and I met up with friends for lunch. Today we'll both just be staying in, as is a typical Sunday for us. Bob does a lot of cooking on Sundays, so that takes up a good chunk of his day. The only good thing about this weekend winding down, is that Christmas is soooo soon, along with a lot of days of work! I will be off next Saturday-Wednesday, and then again that Saturday-Tuesday. So, 9 days off in total; pretty exciting! Work has been pretty hectic lately, and has been so off and on since mid August, so I'm really looking to a lot of time off to decompress from it. 
I wrapped most of the presents I've bought last night, and I'm officially all done Christmas shopping, which is great.
If my parents are feeling better tomorrow (they've both been sick with a stomach virus), Bob and I will be meeting them tomorrow at my great uncle's house for belated birthday cake for my dad and great uncle's birthdays. Friday I'm getting out of work early, because there's a work Christmas party.
In the pictures below I'm wering my new The Oblong Box Shop Christmas skirt. I first saw a picture of the skirt over a month or so ago, and the shop said it was coming in the beginning of December. I eagerly stalked their Instagram and signed up for an email alert, to know when it would become available. I quickly snatched it up when it launched. The print is adorable, with little dogs, Christmas tree, candy canes, etc. Another thing I love about the skirt is that the background color is pink. I love a Christmas print with a lot of pink in it. 
The skirt is a couple of inches too big in the waist for me, but it does run pretty true to the size chart. I was between sizes, so I sized up. Better than to have it be loose, than too tight, though, right?? I think it looks cute worn with my red belt, anyway.
