{Merry Christmas!}

I would like to wish all of my blog and Twitter friends a Merry Christmas!

I hope that all of you have a joyous holiday surrounded by those you love. We are quite excited because for the first time in several years we'll have almost the entire family together on Christmas day--there will be 26 of us including Mom, Dad, my sisters, brother, their spouses, and all 14 grandchildren! It will be such a fun day for the kids.

May peace, love, and happiness be with all of you this holiday season!

{a few of our favorite things}

Sparkly shoes (here are Lil P's which she is loving--yay, a pair of shoes that is actually getting worn out before she outgrows them!):

The Snuggie. Yep, I have one--no comments from the peanut gallery! It's lighter than a blanket, but comfy and just warm enough. We also have a Snuggie thief--I think I might never get mine back...:

J Crew Pixie pants. So stretchy and comfy--anyone can wear them under a tunic or sweater.:

{Tory Burch flats}

I love all of my TB flats, and my newest pair are no exception! Introducing the TB Lissie in Anthracite crackled leather--I like them because they are somewhat neutral but have that extra oomph of sparkle. I will wear them throughout the holidays and beyond! They are different from TB Revas in that the sole is made of leather instead of rubber, the upper is a very pretty crackled leather, and the logo medallion on the toe is encrusted with crystals.
Before I found the Reva I had the hardest time finding comfortable flats that were stylish as well. Thank goodness for them. The gathered elastic banding behind the heel may seem like it would be uncomfortable but it is quite the opposite. Flats look especially cute with the cropped pants and skinny jeans that are everywhere these days, so do give them a try if you don't already have a pair (or ten).

And if you haven't been following me on Twitter, then [you're missing a lot!] and you probably missed seeing the cutest pair of new Revas below which were a surprise birthday gift to me from my wonderful Atlanta meet-up blogger/twitter friends that I blogged about in THIS post! I LOVE them (my shoes and my friends)!

{Lilly Pulitzer Resort 2009}

I tried on a few of the new pieces from Resort 2009. (And Lil P tried her best to squeeze into each picture!) My iPhone does not represent colors accurately--especially pinks. For some reason it always turns pink into orangey-red. Sorry!
I need a cover-up & was thinking maybe one of these...
The Quinn caftan cover-up:
The Sherman tunic dress:
I am posting a pic of this for my friend Cyndy in New Zealand--a fellow Lilly lover.
The Roslyn skirt. This hit me right above the knee just like past season's Simple skirt:
