A Very Merry Christmas

Hello there! Hope you all had a lovely Christmas Eve & Christmas, if you celebrate; mine was good. Bob did have to go out and salt; he worked a couple of hours on Christmas Eve & Christmas, which was annoying. I slept over my parents' on Christmas Eve, and Bob came up Christmas Day around 5:00 p.m. All of my grandparents came over at 1:00 p.m. We didn't get much snow, maybe two inches, but it was enough to make a white Chrsitmas, which we hadn't had in a long time.
My parents gave me some Christmas antiques, which is the first time I've gotten any antiques for Christmas. I also got a wallet, jewelry, calendars, etc. from them. My mom really surprised me with the blue bottle brush tree she gave me, and the antique snowman and snowwoman she gave me. 
I had been with her at both Christmas antique shows where vendors were selling them, and she knew I liked them. I never thought she bought them for me, though! In fact, the snowman and woma were already sold to someone else, but it was a friend of hers, and she contacted her to ask if the friend would be keeping or selling them (she's an antique dealer). 
My dad also gave me money to go antiquing with my mom this Saturday, so I'm happy about that! Hopefully I won't need to spend too much of my own money.  
This morning I went to my sister's wedding venue with her and my mom, and then we went to a cake tasting at the bakery she'll be using for her cake. 
It's so frigidly cold this week, that it makes me not want to leave my apartment, ugh!! It's not getting out of the twenties for at last another week, either.
In the pictures below I'm wearing my Retrospec'd flamenco print Elizabeth dress. I got this one a few months or so ago, via A Classic Paradise. I love the colors in this one, especially that background shade of pink. It's quite tight on my bust, so the Elizabeth is not my favorite Retrospec'd style. The Vivian is a similar style, but fits me better in the bust.

Dress: A Classic Paradise (Retrospec'd)
Bangles & necklace: Splendette
Earrings: Etsy (Luxulite)
Heels" BAIT Footwear
