Happy December Carmalistas! First, does it feel festive around here or what? lol! Thanks to the creative people over at PicMonkey, bloggers have a plethora of holiday-themed backdrops to choose from! I blogged three times last week to celebrate Thanksgiving…yay for me! Y’all know I’ve been scattered on the blog scene for months now, so that is a huge feat for me! If you missed those posts, you may check them out here, here, and here. Anyway, I’m keeping up the holiday posts throughout the month of December! I’ll reveal a new posting schedule and themes for 2014 at the top of the New Year!
This year, my fiancé and I both have Holiday Office Parties to attend! This has NEVER happened and now that people never expect to see one without the other; we’ll be attending each others’ office parties! My office holiday will be more casual, as it is being held at my supervisor’s home. His office holiday party as being held at one of the bigger hotels in the city! While I know how to dress for casual and formal events, I’m still a bit nervous about dressing comfortably, bringing the right foods, choosing to drink or not, and talking too little/too much! I did however, find a delectable brownie recipe on Pinterest, that I may try for my office party!

Since moving to Atlanta and meeting other couples, we’re beginning to see more invitations to house-warming parties, dinners and other couple related events. I can’t lie, it’s pretty exciting. It’s a new world for us because for so long it was just us! We’re used to fending for ourselves and not letting anyone in, but I can see the change in us as far as being more open to inviting new people in our lives. The best part about being in the couples/marriage community, is that everyone we connect with is either part of our church family or they live and walk in Christ. There is nothing better than fellowshipping with couples who share the same beliefs in marriage and Christ! I’m enjoying the growth that comes with our newly found life together! Live life, let people in (the right people), and let God!
I created two sets of Christmas party wear via Polyvore to help me put together outfits for our holiday parties!
How do you prepare for office parties? Have you all put up your Christmas trees? Happy Holidays Carmalista Style! ~ Caramel Rell
