Ever since we heard our first carol of the season, we’ve been waiting for this week—and dreading the days to follow. The holidays are here—at last!—and, while we’ve been prepping for them for months, they’re going to be gone before we know it. So, we’re doing everything we can to soak up the fun now through New Year’s. For starters? We’re getting the R&R we need so we’re altogether ready to face the big day (Christmas!). What’s more, we’re scoring presents they’ll love—and are making plans to get all they’ll “forget.” (Our list was long!) Finally, we’re dedicating ourselves to finding the perfect outfit to ring in 2014. We have a hunch it’s going to be a very big year, and—at least one thing’s for sure: It’s going to end with a bang!
