Christmas with Friends

My friends & I decided to have a more intimate Christmas gathering this year with games and fun. We usually go out with a large group for Christmas, but we we weren't feelin' it this year. It seems that the older we get, the less we want to go out. Is it like that with you guys too? Nowadays, I prefer staying in, hanging out, and playing board (or video) games. My current favourite board game is Settlers of Catan. : )
For those who haven't seen it already, this is my new hair - darker and shorter. I had it done by Mike at the (new-ish) downtown location of Spellbound Hair Design. Along with the cut, Mike also gave me a PM Shine, which is a demi-permanent hydrating colouring method that lasts 6-8 weeks. My hair will be back to its lighter shade come spring!

This year, I received a number of small gifts from my Secret Santa! She gave me everything on my list, which was perfect! I asked for this red iPhone case, Dalmatian print Polaroid film (but I like to call it cow print), a Starbucks card, and Helpers of Catan to accompany the board game Settlers of Catan.

Happy holidays, from all of us! Wishing you a safe and happy holiday season filled with lots of food, fun, family, and friends. See you all in the new year. : )

I'll be posting more often on Instagram (@jessydust) than on my blog for the next week or so. Keep in touch with me there and on Twitter! I'll be responding on those two profiles a lot quicker than on my blog. : )
