ChristmasLightsatHershey 

I'll admit I haven't been as in the spirit of the holidays as normal. Jason's made an attempt to make it better by taking me into Christmas Candylane at HersheyPark. Overcrowded with limited rides, the things he had read about and been excited about seemed to pale in comparison of the promises on the web. We spent a small amount of time in the park trying to take a single decent photo (he had chose this because of the 2 million plus twinkling lights, which we find hard to believe, or if there is, they are mostly used in a light show in a small river of the park). Our dinner ended up worse when the fig compote on our pizza which they swore didn't have nuts in it surely did.

In the end, we chalked this up to a bad date night and decided to make it better the next day. We took photos of my outfit in decent lighting, played with the dogs, and wrapped gifts while watching White Christmas.

  1. Cutest tights! And red looks really good on you. Love this tote too! That sucks your date night didn't go so well. I hate when that happens. I haven't been in the Christmas spirit much either. I hope going to see the nutcracker tonight will help that!

  2. Ugh I hate days when everything seems to go wrong and you just end up in a grumpy mood. At least you guys were able to bounce back and have a good day the next day, wrapping presents, and playing with pups is definitely mood lifting!!
    Love this skirt, the sparkles on it are gorgeous, perfect with the red sweater and hat! and those tights! Sooo cute

  3. Hershey Park is so much better in the spring. Then all the coasters are open, but there aren't quite as many crazy tourists there yet. Trust me, my brother works there. :)

    I'm loving your outfit! That hat looks so comfy!

  7. I'm not feeling in the mood for Christmas yet either. I don't know what it is about this year! Sorry about your date too. It sucks when plans don't work out like you thought they would.
    I really like this outfit you're wearing. The tights are so super cute and the color of your cardigan and hat looks so pretty with them.

  8. That glitter on your skirt is so pretty! And so are your tights. I'm not really into christmas mode either, but that's mostly because I have to study. I don't even have a gift for my boyfriend yet, unbelievable!

  9. Those tights are so much fun! :) I love wrapping presents and preparing for everything. I haven't really watched any Christmas movies, though. I keep meaning to watch Elf. I've never seen it... :X

  11. Your red riding hood tights... OH MY GOODNESS. Those are THE sweetest thing I have ever seen! If you had not said that it was a bad date, I would never have guessed with those pretty lights, but I am glad you guys made it up the next day! Happy Friday to you!

  12. You are always so cute! You inspire me to wear hats more often!
    I love those tights too!

    I have similar stories to yours. One time Dominick tried to surprise me and take me to Greenfield Village Christmas event, but he didn't tell me we would be outside..so I wore flats. And he didn't tell me we were going with friends and taking one car...so we couldn't leave. I was cold and awful.

    Another time, we went to Barnes and Noble and the lady at the cafe offered us a sample...failing to mention there were nuts in it. So we had to leave and go straight to Dominick's house, where he took Benadryl and passed out.

  19. The sequins on your skirt and the little christmas printed tights definitely make this outfit.
    Most of my date nights turn out to be a bummer if only because I have much too high expectations of the universe. Haha.

  25. Boo! I'm sorry to hear your date night kinda sucked :(. I'd be pretty upset if a restaurant told me something was free of nuts when it wasn't. Depending on what kind of allergy you have that can be deadly! At least you looked super cute. Love those sweater tights!
