Holiday outfits, family, food mash-up (plus Budz update)

My brother-in-law hugging the Budz

So Budz and I went back to the vet today, and it turns out that the antibiotics didn't help. In fact, the vet said that if anything, his condition seems worse. So we'll be taking him to some specialist pet surgeons. I'm at least grateful that we now have a plan, and it sounds like this type of surgery has a fairly good success rate. I can't wait to have Budz back at full health again.

This break Budz got a lotta love. Heck, we all had good times here with my husband's family in town.

We said goodbye to the old dishwasher that came with the house, and welcomed a new one from Evan's parents (which Evan then spent a day installing by himself, lol)

Dishwasher outfit
Anthropologie Pink (looks wine colored to me) Finessed Turtleneck sz XS (sale $30)
Club Monaco gold & beige striped skirt sz 0 (thrifted $4)
Grey belt
grey ribbed tights ($6)
Dollhouse slippers

There was much food preparation and consumption

followed by much merriment... some might say too much merriment ;)

Gift giving/opening was extra full of merriment

...and led the way to more food consumption... hmm... :) ooh personal pies!

Ah, good times!

Christmas Eve outfit:

Kensie Pretty silk shift dress sz XS (thrifted $4)
Adidas black skinny belt (thrifted 99 cents)
Hue bordeaux sueded tights (Ebay $6.50)
H&M multi-chain necklace ($12?)
Anne Klein Bangles (gifted)
Pink INC strappy heels (thrifted $6)

Christmas Day outfit:

Anthropologie Floreat Faceted skirt sz 0 (sale $22.50)
Banana Republic baby blue long-sleeved tee sz XS (thrifted $6)
black tights
Dollhouse Slippers
pearl and jade necklace (gifted)

Recovery Outfit:

Starling embellished hoodie sz XS (Nordy Rack sale $6.50)
Striped ruched H&M long sleeve tee by Divided sz 6 ($13)
Lisa Skinny Jeans by Fire Jeans sz 5 (thrifted $7)
Multi-strand red beaded necklace (thrifted $7)

Guess what? Evan surprised me for Christmas with a new camera body! He's been upgrading my camera piece by piece. Christmas came with a Rebel T1i (aka Canon 500D). He also surprised me with a Star Wars Garden Jawa (his contribution to our yard art), but I'm waaaaay more excited about the new camera... sorry hun! :)

Merry belated Christmas Lori! Thanks for sharing your family pics. Everyone looks like they had a cracker of a time! so much craziness and fun :-) AS always, your jaw-dropping expressions are hilarious..hehe
Your holiday outfits are fabulous and i can't believe how you thrifted all of the items - that's amazing. My fave is the Floreat Faceted skirt. The vibrant colours around the hem brightens up the block black.
Wishing Budz all the best in his surgery. He's a very brave cutie!

Happy holidays, Lori! It looks like your had a great time with you family. I hope the specialist is able to provide more insight on Budz -- poor guy! I'm sure he got a lot of extra love with the visitors around : )

And I love the shoulder details on your zip up from NR. So pretty!

You have the best collection of skirts! And I love all of these fun holiday photos!

Happy Holidays! I notice you put red lipstick on in one of the pictures. Love the color! :-)

I am very sorry about Budz's condition. I don't have pets, but I imagine it is not different from when a child gets sick. Not able to do anything to help is the worst feeling. I am glad now there is a plan now. We can always be hopeful. Good luck with the surgery. Wish him a speedy recovery.

It sounds like you have a good plan for Budz. And everyone looks like they were in the merriest of spirits for the holiday. I absolutely adore your Christmas Day outfit right down to the sweet slippers.
