gift guide - coziness.

I don't know about you but I love anything and everything cozy in the Winter.  There's nothing quite like cozying up on the couch with a cup of tea, a warm pair of flannel pjs and some slippers on a cold Winter's night.  And another thing I love, getting any of these cozy things for Christmas (ahem, husband....).

Is everyone ready for Christmas?

It's been so fun this year having a little one to buy for - he's five so we're right in that perfect stage where he believes wholeheartedly in Santa.  He's had an advent calendar that he opens everyday and is counting down each day with full anticipation and excitement of what's to come.

He told us the other day that he wanted to make a Christmas list for Santa (we better get on that!) but that he wasn't going to make the list too long as he didn't want to be greedy - gotta love him and those Berenstain Bear books for teaching him not to be greedy!

On Thursday, we're taking him to see the Christmas train that is pulling into our city that evening.  He loves trains and Christmas lights so put them together and you've got yourself a pretty spectacular evening on your hands (well, for a five year old at least!).

Christmas through the eyes of a child - it really is the best.

Want to know another thing I'm loving this Christmas....turtlenecks.  That's right.  There's just something so warm and cozy about a turtleneck - plus there's no need for a necklace or anything so makes for a pretty easy outfit!

So if you're like me at all, you love tea....especially in the Winter.  It's just such a cozy drink to sip on when it's cold and dreary outside.

Here's a bunch of my favourites tea items to give this Christmas....

wedding - the ceremony.

We recently got our professional wedding photos back from our photographer and OMG - they are beautiful.  I could be a bit bias and, really, how terrible could pictures be in Hawaii, but honestly we couldn't have ask for anything better.  There were so many incredible shots that it's been very difficult to narrow down my favourites.

Our photographer was so great.  It actually rained immediately following the ceremony so we were a bit bummed thinking that our photo session would be cut short given the rain.  Well, our photographer was kind enough to offer to shoot us the following day.  There is something to be said for wanting to be natural on your wedding day - I sure wasn't concerned about having to do my hair and make up again for the photo shoot the following day.

Here's just a few of my favourites from the ceremony....

These photos hold such special memories for us.  We couldn't have ask for anyone more perfect to capture our special day.

We would highly, HIGHLY recommend Bill Stockwell Photgraphy!

I'll be back to share our photos from the shoot we did the following day.

gift guide - stocking stuffers.

Stocking stuffers sometimes are my favourites gifts.  Not sure what it is but there's just something about nick-nacky things that I love.

Anyway, here are some of my faves!

Guys, I swear, I wore a coat this day.  It's been freezing in Vancouver for the last couple of weeks - but for blog purposes, I braved the elements and took off my parka.

As far as the weather is concerned, I love the cold, sunny, crisp days of Fall.  I was hoping that it would stick around for December or even right through until Christmas - because don't you just find those cold days to feel more Christmasy - but, alas, I think it's supposed to warm up tomorrow and start raining.

Today it's all about the men - hope these ideas help buy for the men in your life because, gosh darn it, they can be hard to buy for!

Another idea: tools - I'm no expert on this (surprising so ;)) but I do know my husband would like a drill - what type of drill, though, I have no idea!

Or: DVDs - another thing on my husband's wishlist - Captain America: The Winter Solider.

Happy Friday!
