no shame in my Christmas game

I thought I'd post one more time before the holiday, because I'm just feeling it. For the next few minutes. Heck, maybe few seconds… but hopefully few minutes, I'm in my most favorite state of being. Christmas music playing. Tree and angel are the only lights on in the house. Reading blogs. Red win in my holiday wine glass. Baby is in bed, dogs are calm, and husband's on a beer run. I may very well just have cheese and crackers for dinner.

I say no shame, because I have a serious shame/guilt complex these days. The holidays really make us reflect on how wonderful (or not so wonderful sometimes) life can be. Luckily for me, it's a reminder I am so, so blessed.

But with that realization comes questions.

Why am I so happy and warm and full of happiness over my little life when some people cannot catch a break? I beat myself up over that for some reason, and I'm not sure why.

Why am I so cliche? Why do I love all the things that I do?

But you know what. I don't really care. I love Pottery Barn and Michael Kors and Starbucks and Home Goods and flannel and Uggs and all the rest of the crap that every other overgramming, newly(ish)wed, new mom, 20 something loves… and I don't care.

MAYBE just maybe the reason EVERYONE loves all of that stuff is because it is freaking AWESOME.

Just a thought.

So this holiday I hope everyone gets their Basic on, because I know I will be, and I will love every minute of it!

And because no post is complete without a picture… Love this little lady!

Britney, even with all your love of this, you are one of the most down to Earth people. Don't beat yourself up with guilt. You still remain humble and thankful with all that you have been blessed with, and that's what's important! Merry Christmas!

Sorry I butchered your name, Brittany!

I love SOME of those things, but I'll never be a MK or Starbucks girl. But other trendy/popular things? I'm in- and that's okay! Whatever you enjoy and whatever makes ya happy, right?! :)MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
