Holiday Happenings: Christmas Morning

Christmas morning… one of my favorite moments and so many memories from this one day a year. Everything from jumping on top of my parents, waking them up at the crack of dawn to rush downstairs, to tearing open the presents and spending hours playing with my new toys. But it's the people I spend this time with that really makes Christmas morning so special!

This year my family decided to do something a little out of the norm and nontraditional. Next Tuesday I'll be heading down to sunny Florida with the fam, to enjoy five days at the happiest place on earth… Disney World! It has been on my bucket list for years to spend Christmas in Orlando. Everything from the Christmas parades to seeing the gorgeous decor… I cannot wait!! I'm excited for my first nontraditional Christmas!! Yes, I'll miss the time spent at home, opening presents from under the tree and making a huge homemade breakfast with my mom. But as I get older, it's the new memories and traditions that I'm going to treasure most.

Although some traditions are changing, others certainly are not! One that will remain the same, is Christmas jammies. I love wearing something festive for the occasion. I'll be honest… my actual Christmas morning look isn't this bright, cheerful or put together (imagine, sans makeup, ha!). But I did pick up some fun Gingerbread Men leggings and the most comfortable oversized sweatshirt from Forever 21 to wear. Y'all, I've already been living in these leggings. They're so warm and comfy. Not sure how this will work in the 85 degree weather in Florida, but I'll make do!

I'm back today with my Holiday Happenings friends to share our own Christmas morning looks and traditions. Be sure to checkout Julie's, Emily's and Laura's "outfits of the morning" on their blogs!

    Ok, those gingerbread leggings are totally cute and I'm totally jealous! I think you'll be fine wearing them in the morning, though your sweatshirt may be more than what you want/need.

    And your friends nailed their outfits too!
