How to Glam up Your Everyday Office Look in the Winters

While formal wear in the summers mean quickly pairing a top with trousers, looking glam while also beating the chills can sometimes be tricky. While dropping temperatures bring with them several style options, they may not be your best bet in a professional…

I have these warm and fuzzy memories of Christmas time as a child. My mom baked, she made crafts with me, took me ice skating along with a plethora of other activities that made me cry when Christmas was over. These memories even evoke a few tears now as I think of her and all of the sacrifices she made to create a magical holiday experience for me as a child as a single mother. There is no doubt in my mind that if she was still here she would be taking it to the next level for my children. Unfortunately she isn't, so I have to grab the torch and start creating memories for my children. I must say I am a bit disappointed in myself for not creating a better experience for my son. However, there is no better time than the present to make a change. Lil Man is now 5, the perfect age for me to start creating awesome holiday memories for him. Over the next few weeks, I will post a series called "Christmas Memories" under which I will detail projects, and places that we attend in starting our own family Christmas traditions. For all my faithful readers for the 4,589th time you know I don't cook, I don't bake and I'm not crafty so these posts are sure to pack holiday cheer and laughter in the literal sense!

Last night started the festivities. He asked about making Christmas cookies, and I promised him we would, but that was before I realized I was exhausted. For those of you with children around Lil Man's age you already know there is no such thing as making a promise and not sticking to it. He must have asked a million times when we were going to start on the cookies. It was in the best interest of my sanity to stand by my word, so I headed out in the pouring rain toWalmart for cookie cutters, cookie mix and sugar and we made cookies.....

All supplies on deck


Let's get this party started


Mixing it up

The next step called for flattening the dough on a floured surface. I decided to put the flour on the kitchen table so he could reach, and since I don't have a rolling pin we had to improvise and use a carafe *gotta stay quick on your feet*

He's working it out...

Dad even joined in on the fun after calling me out for the bootleg rolling pin


The end product...I turned my back for a minute, thus the insane amount of sugar
Check out Lil Mama eyeing the cookies with the open hand

After all was said and done he was so happy..and that made me ecstatic. We sat down together and enjoyed them with a glass of milk over a mother and son discussion about his day. I think our first activity went over well!
What are some of your favorite Christmas traditions?
