A midday pick-me-up with my favorite holiday drink at Starbucks, peppermint mocha frappuccino :)

Some fabric I bought to whip up a pair of pajama pants to wear around the house, because the current pair I have is dying after almost ten years. Holes are appearing faster than I can sew them shut, so it's probably time to retire this pair. But I'm excited for my new fabric, I love fun pajama prints :)

Christmas in downtown San Francisco is so pretty! Yesterday my friends and I did some shopping and went to watch Frozen, which was adorable! I really enjoyed the movie, especially the music! My favorite songs are "Do You Want to Build a Snowman", "Let It Go", and "For the First Time." I had no idea Kristen Bell could sing, but I knew Idina Menzel would be amazing with her fantastic voice! Ahhh such a cute film, I highly recommend it!
For a sneak peak, take a look at "Let It Go" below, performed by Idina Menzel:

Happy hour at a lounge in the neighborhood with Judy! We also got a chance to watch Pacific Rim, which I've been wanting to see for awhile. It was pretty good actually! Initially the trailer turned me off on the film since it looked so bad, but it wasn't actually as horrible as I thought it'd be.

They opened a new macaron place over at the mall in the next city over, so my mom picked up these three flavors: mango, mint, and chocolate. I've only tried the mint one so far, but it's super yummy! I love all things mint-flavored! I also hear there's an earl grey flavor, so I'm definitely picking that up next time I'm there.

Yesterday was sort of a lazy day, but I also spent some time doing some chores around the house, really exciting things like laundry, washing makeup brushes, and cleaning (that was sarcasm obviously). I also decided it was time we changed up the family photos in the living room, which have been the exact same baby photos hanging on the wall for as long as I can remember. My sister has frequently complained that we need to update them, so I finally took the time last night to print out some out and organize new photos into a collage frame. I can't wait to hang them up :)

Woot I finally got my first holiday cup from Starbucks for the season (even though I've been ordering holiday drinks all season, but just the cold ones). Yesterday I was reunited with my friends Jen and Judy and we went to watch Catching Fire again, which was a different experience since they've actually read the books and I didn't have to explain everything to them haha. We also had a lovely dinner at Jen's house and tried to play a new board game called Triology, which is supposed to be the more advanced, epic version of Set, but it turns out that Set is way better. I think maybe we might have been playing it wrong? In any case, it was a nice day to catch up with my friends :)
