Monday, December 15

I thought I'd share a fun little Christmas treat this week. It's fun to hear a non-traditional holiday song when all we hear are Christmas carols this time of year.

Good morning, lovelies!

Confession is good for the soul, so grab the button and let it all out. You'll feel better when you're finished.

I confess...

Getting sick during the busiest work week of the year is my kind of luck. It couldn't happen during the four-day weekend for Thanksgiving; it had to be the Monday after Thanksgiving. AND I lost my voice. Thank goodness I have these guys to comfort me when I get home.

I confess...

I was pleasantly surprised when Purina tweeted that photo of my pups yesterday. It's fun to be recognized by national brands or celebrities.

I confess...

I have a lot of holiday crocheting to get done between now and Christmas. Thank goodness I'll be past my biggest work deadlines for this year on Monday. Did y'all see the cute, little wine bottle scarves I've been making on Wino Wednesday?

I confess...

I cannot get enough of this little man, but I'm definitely investing obedience lessons for him after the holidays. He is a maniac.

I confess...

The season of holiday parties has begun. Last weekend, we headed to our friends' White Elephant party. I brought home the ultimate white elephant: Angela Lansbury! Pretty sure that will be re-gifted at their party next year.

Hello, fellow winos!

Welcome to Wino Wednesday! This is a monthly linky party that I co-host with Danielle from The Crafty Wino where we discuss any and all things wine-related. Let me cover the ground rules for the party:

  1. Grab the Wino Wednesday party and slap it on your post.
  2. Link a wine-related post to the linky party.
  3. Make some new friends over a glass of vino.

Easy peezy. Now on to the wine.

Can I get an amen? It seems like the busier I get between work and the holidays, all I want is it kick my shoes off at home with a glass of vino.

This was my favorite find last month.

And if we need anymore convincing, check out these health benefits of red wine:

Obviously, we'll be giving wine-related holiday gifts this year. If you need a little gift giving inspiration, I've got you covered.

And this is how we're dressing up the wine we're actually giving this year.

We'll be making some changes with the Wino Wednesday party in 2015, and haven't work all the details out. Watch in early January for the newly revamped party.

P.S. If you enjoyed this post, you might want to consider following my Wino Wednesday board on Pinterest. We'll see you at the next Wino Wednesday, which is the second Wednesday of each month.

Wednesday, December 3

If you're a regular around these parts, you may have noticed that the updates here on High-Heeled Love are getting pretty sparse. I wish this weren't the case. I love this blog and miss interacting with you readers.

I don't talk a lot about work here on the blog. I own an insurance agency, and two of the products that I handle include Medicare-related products as well individual health insurance. If you're at all famaliar with these markets, you know the election period for the first runs from the middle of October to the beginning of December. Open enrollment for health insurance started Nov. 15 with the majority of my clients needing reviews by the middle of December, but it doesn't end until February.

High-Heeled Love: A Quick Update 12.3.14

All this to say that I'm an incredibly busy bee at work and my hours grow quite extended this time of year. Pair that with a new puppy who needs lots of exercise, training and attention, and there hasn't been a lot of extra time for blogging.

I owe y'all and my Weekly Round-Up co-host Miss Angie a huge apology since many of my blogging obligations just aren't being met these days.

I'm hoping to sneak in here with updates when I can, but life with continue to be crazy through the end of the year between work and the holidays. At the very minimum, I expect Friday Confessional to stay on track.

I hope y'all with hang in there with me, and I'll try to stop by your blogs to comment when I can.
