Are you ready? I'm certainly not! We're still working out our Christmas menu, I have more shopping to do and more Christmas movies to watch!! This weekend we're heading West to decorate the house for Christmas. I'm excited to do this as we are not doing a tree in our apartment this year (sniff sniff). As we're spending Christmas with my parents and we have a toddler, we decided no tree was the best thing for our sanity (I can't even imagine the havoc C would wreck with a tree at her disposal!). So, although our streets are lined with a 3" block of ice, I braved the elements and headed into town this weekend to really get in the spirit.
The weekend started on Friday night with this vision:
On Saturday morning, my sister, C and I went for a wander through the park and saw this ginormous snowman:
|Can you see the little boy beside it? It's enormous!|
The lights were up on Grafton Street (excuse the bad photo):
Here are the windows at Brown Thomas:
A modern doll house in Bewleys:
Hilarity at Ted Baker:
Sunday morning called for some relaxing.....
....before heading out to see Arcade Fire at the O2. They were FANTASTIC. I was so mad that I forgot my camera, so All I have are some pretty shoddy camera phone pics. Still, they were great and it was a fantastic night out!
And what better way to get in the spirit than with some music. Here's what I am listening to right now, from 1976 by you-know-who! :)
Happy Tuesday, everyone!
