A very Chanel Christmas

We finally got some "wintery" weather here in Lahaina... well, as wintery as the islands can get. :) It was windy, rainy, and cold -- yes cold! I love the cold...

I had a very very very lazy Sunday morning. I got up a little past 10am. Eli asked if I wanted to go with him to the gym, but I don't do the gym on Sundays. :) I stayed in my pj's, popped on the couch, ready to devour a big slice of pumpkin roll for breakfast (mmm... I'm thankful for leftovers), and turned on the tube. I watched an all day marathon of Monk.  I'm so sad that that show is coming to an end, but I'm happy to know that Mr. Monk will finally know what happened to Trudy.  After a few episodes of Monk, I decided that we needed to trim our tree today. We bought a teeny one this year, about 3ft tall and the funny thing is... I bought the wrong color!! It's black. At first I wasn't excited about a black tree, but Eli suggested we have a Chanel Christmas tree this year and that a black tree would be perfect. So after several hours of crafting, I ended up with about 20 unique Chanel ornaments.  We just got done decorating the tree (it's 2am here in Hawaii) and Eli was right, the tree came out PERFECT! It's lovely and special. 

Has anyone decorated their tree yet? Any great/fun/unique themes?? I'd love to see all the creative ideas everyone came up with. :)  Time to get me some shut eye. Good night.. and Good Morning.

Love, S

We put on tree on our kitchen table -- that we never eat at.. (I normally craft/sew on this table)
Pooma helped us out too. :) (I know, OMG, doggie on the Kitchen table!!)... she got her hair cut yesterday and is sporting her winter turtle.. you can't really tell, but it's green with pink argyle.
My lovely hubby... goofing around... Me holding my favorite ornament.
All done! the lights ar red. :)
I had so much fun making all these ornaments and it didn't cost me a thing. I had everything on hand.  I even used leftover lace from my wedding dress. :)

[p]K home the bottle of sparkling less suitable [url=http://www.clarisonicmia4sale.com]cheap clarisonic mia 2[/url] brush . On Christmas Day, the whole family gathers around the Christmas tree to give and receive gifts . Some long time users claim [url=http://www.clarisonicmia4sale.com]discount clarisonic mia canada
[/url] that they were able to achieve lighter skin tone . But still worth it, this toothbrush [url=http://www.clarisonicmia4sale.com]clarisonic mia[/url] is known as whitening course, lz my teeth are not very white genetic, I know very well that it can do nothing, but the cleaning effect is Leverage . The end results [url=http://www.clarisonicmia4sale.com]clarisonic mia sale[/url] that can be achieved are similar to those you get from a professional beauty treatment in a salon . Carry out your own personal study simply by studying critiques, browsing community forums and so forth, and [url=http://www.clarisonicmia4sale.com]clarisonic mia 2[/url] also I do believe you are likely to find that simply handful of men and women have seen difficulties with the particular Clarisonic cosmetic method, and also this contains the individuals together with really fragile epidermis . Clarisonic Mia

Facial skin cleansing brushes have become popular beauty products . Even mature women can look younger than their age if they use this on a regular basis.[/p]
