Magical Christmas

Good morning!  I hope everyone had a very magical Christmas!  I can't believe it's the day after Christmas already and I'm thinking about the new year and getting excited about all the plans for Crazy Blonde Life!

We truly did have a magical Christmas here at the Smith home!  We enjoyed spending time together, opening presents and eating delicious food.  I wanted to share some of the pictures of our day along with some links and a recipe for my Grits Souffle.  It's a recipe that's great to make all year long and a real crowd pleaser.

Also be sure to check your email later this afternoon for a schedule of Crazy Blonde Life Cooking Classes.  I've included some evening classes for those who can't come during the day, so I hope that you'll sign up soon.  The focus for the blog and also the cooking classes in January is on getting healthy for the new year.  I'm also excited about a vision board workshop on January 15th! 

These pictures were taken on Christmas Eve!  We certainly have so much to be grateful for!

Christmas morning breakfast!  We had smoked salmon and croissants from Williams Sonoma, Grits Souffle, miniature ham biscuits and of course, Mimosas with freshly squeezed orange juice.

We all wore pj's from Victoria's Secret except for Mr. Crazy.  His are from Target!

My favorite Christmas present from Mr. Crazy was a locket with room for four pictures made by Monica Rich Kosann.

I stayed in my pajamas most of the day!  Obviously it wasn't a cold day yesterday!

Last night, we had several stops to make and I wore a vest from Anthropologie (similar here), an Ann Taylor Blouse (everything at Ann Taylor is 50% off) and my fabulous floral booties from Steve Madden, along with my locket.

We all made really special memories yesterday.  The holiday season is about being with the people that you love and I feel so blessed that we had a magical Christmas day.   It truly was the best day!  I hope you all have a wonderful week...be sure to check back to see what I'm up to for the new year!
