A Dress For The Holidays!

The holidays are upon us and many are already planning menus and ordering gifts. I've been busy but luckily, I've already finished my shopping. Now, I'm cleaning house, planning holiday activities and getting ready to spend the day with my family to go and pick out a Christmas tree. We make a plan to get one every December 1! I'm also busy trying to keep the kids from discovering their unwrapped presents. That's harder than it sounds! While I don't have my hands completely full because I'm not hosting a large party this year, I am entertaining a few nights before Christmas. I like things to be perfect and I work hard to make sure my parties are memorable. A few years ago,  I would get so wrapped up in all the little details, I'd forget to find a new dress or outfit to dazzle my guests. When that happens, I usually just pull something from my closet. The next time I host a holiday bash, I am going to WOW everyone with my party and my party dress! While there are some fashions I really wish I could wear, I'll stick with classic and slightly conservative choices. But just wait. One day I'm going to buy a dress that wows, even if I don't have anywhere to wear it!
I've been tempted to get something extraordinary to wear. Maybe next year, I'll have the chance to host the first of many, lavish parties and wear an elegant and memorable dress. I think I can pull it off. I'll invite my favorite people and we can sip champagne and spread a little holiday cheer. Wouldn't that be fun! This year, I'm keeping it simple. A dinner party with friends and family. We'll drink eggnog and listen to Christmas music by the fire, and maybe roast a few chestnuts. Next year, I'm going all out, and my dress will be the first item I check off my list of things to buy!
