Guess where I'm going?

Oh yes, I am going away again. I am slightly excited!
It is some time in December and even though it is little over one month away I am really getting nervous. I will leave sunny, and quite warm California for a while. Ha, I will probably be walking through snow and mostly freezing my butt off. Nothing against that, especially since I'll be spending it with family!! Yay!

Now, you want to know where I'm headed?
Don't worry I'll tell ya.



Well, I only fly into St. Louis, and I may even spend a day or so at some point in the city but I'll be spending the rest of my lil' vacay time in Illinois. Finally. Unfortunately, Chicago has to wait a little. I am sad. Don't hate me now. But I know I'll be back and definitely enjoying some Chicago time at some point. A must anyways. It's the sister city to my hometown, so at some point I have to visit it. Though, I digress...St. Louis and Illinois-farmland will be my getaway places in December!!! Wohoo! Yes, I'm that excited. I clearly need a time-out, and a break. Already? Yes, lovelies...already.

Now all I need is to find the perfect shoes/boots, and winter sweaters...and yes, y'all gave me great ideas on where to look for what items and all. Thank you!

So I'm going out in a few hours hunting down awesome deals so I can finally stay warm and cozy!!! And I may even finish my Christmas shopping this week, once and for all. I want to be 100% ready for the upcoming holiday season! My plan is to be ready by Thanksgiving...having everything wrapped up, placed into boxes and ready to be sent away! Yes, that early and yes, I know I'm crazy. Thankyouverymuch.

Have you started your holiday shopping yet?!

Oh yay! Have fun in St. Louis and Illinois! When you're in STL you'll be close to me (kind of). I'm in KC. Haha! ;)

I'm pretty familiar with Illinois, as I have close family in Rockford and Rock Island and Chicago. Staying anywhere near those places?

Family used to live in STL, and I was last there in 05 or 06. I've not been to Chicago since 99. Wow!
