holiday party

Welcome to the weekend! We're one week closer to Christmas friends! How is your shopping going? I'm almost done, I need to finish up a couple things for Mike and to figure out what to get Dan, my brother-in-law. I started wrapping and everything that I've purchased is wrapped AND under the tree. I feel so accomplished!
This weekend I have a jam packed schedule of running and cookie baking! I have my longest distance run (to date) this weekend, shooting for 9 miles. I actually plan on running to the local mall and having mom pick me up there. I like running TO a destination instead of in a loop. We'll see how it goes. I'm getting really excited about the race. Knowing that my cousin finished one last weekend is really making me more confident that I can do it too.
Yesterday my stupid check engine light came on. Stupid. I have to go this morning to have the code red to figure out what is wrong with it. I have never had a check engine light come on before so I have NO clue what to expect. I'm hoping for something stupid like I didn't put my gas cap on tight enough, and not something major like the engine is going to fall out of the car. I'm so not a car person. This post is feeling a little ADD to me today...Sorry about that.
Onto some gorgeousness! As always on Fridays I'm linking up with Alison from Long Distance Loving for Friday Fancies! I love this link up and if you haven't checked it out, you really should. I get such great style inspiration from it and this time of year it is full of holiday gift ideas! The theme this week was to pick an outfit for a holiday party. I'm totally feeling purple for Christmas this year. Well, I suppose I was feeling it last year too, but I really like purple. Especially rich, eggplant-y purple. And especially paired with something nude/sparkly.

Oh my goodness, that dress is just gorgeous! And I love that you paired it with purple. It's a nice alternative for all the red we're seeing these days!
