Fuzzy Coat + 10 Things I love about Christmas

A fuzzy, drape front jacket to keep you warm this winter.


I wore this fuzzy jacket back in this post and loved it so much that I wanted to share it again!  This time I paired it with an all black look.  It's so incredibly soft and warm and I think it can be worn so many ways, from casual to dressy.  


With Christmas being this week I thought I'd share the top 10 things I love about Christmas.

1. The birth of Jesus Christ.  It's easy to get swept away by the gift buying and giving, but He really is the reason for this holiday.

2. The way our Christmas tree looks lit up at night and early in the morning.  It makes the entire room glow.  

3. Baking cookies.  It's the one time of year where it's required to have oodles of cookies baked.  There is always a cookie tray at each party we attend, you give them as gifts, ladies host cookie exchanges, families spend entire day(s) baking, and kids leave a few for Santa!  Love it!

4. The color red!  It's not a color I usually wear, I just don't think it looks great on me, but this time of year, I can't get enough of it.  Hence the wreaths I found for these pictures :)

5. Hallmark Channel Christmas movies.  I have been watching them non-stop.  They are cheesy but oh so good.  There's always a happy ending!

6. Christmas songs on the radio.  My favorite is Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays by N'Sync (I loved N'Sync Justin Timberlake) followed by All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey.  My favorite classic song is O Holy Night, it's such a beautiful song.

7.  Shopping!!  I love shopping all year-round, but I love buying presents for the kids, hubby and family.  We always make lists of things we'd like, but I also love searching and finding perfect gifts that aren't on their lists!  Its so fun to watch their faces as they open gifts.

8. The kids excitement.  They start their lists months in advance and are so excited when Christmas Eve finally comes.  I love the joy they have this time of year.  They really make this holiday wonderful.

9.  Egg Nog.  Not just any egg nog.  We go to a friends Christmas Eve party every year and they serve the BEST egg nog (with bourbon of course).  It's amazing and just a little bit will make you tipsy. 

10.  Christmas Day itself.  The traditions I grew up with and that I've passed on to my family, makes me so happy.   

What do you love about Christmas?

  6. What a pretty jacket! It looks so cozy and warm too! I love holiday baking and Christmas music on the radio too. And my son, who is 2, is just starting to get excited about Christmas even though he doesn't really fully understand the concept just yet. Presents, though, he gets :)
