Another holly jolly holiday for lali! …a photo essay

Before we get on our respective planes headed toward our respective home states, la and I wanted to WISH YOU ALL AN AMAZING 2011 FINALE by sharing with you the fun memories of the holiday season we’ve accumulated so far…

This time of year, you can’t get away from the office for every holiday party, so we chose to kick off the season with a yum holiday brunch thanks to an invitation from Ashley Ford, followed by a sunny walk through the Marina (which we should TOTALLY do more often, la)

After that, la and I happily scored two tickets to the AICP party at the Roosevelt, complete with synchronized swimmers, He’s My Brother She’s My Sister, and Santa’s Lap

La and I baked some holiday cookies with our girlfriends — not surprisingly, wearing matching aprons :)

THEN, it was FINALLY time for the much-awaited Chiat Holiday Party!! We played dress-up:

And swooned over our hot dates:

Adorably, Nick gave Lisa a corsage:

So Lisa gave Nick a kiss:

All in all, lali had a super fun time!

After that shindig wrapped up, this past week at Chiat was practically a ghost town, so la and I took the liberty of actually leaving the office for lunch (truthfully, some Christmas shopping and a couple Wetzels Pretzels). As always, we found an excuse to sing about something. In this case, scrubs:

And for the grand finale, we showed up at the office on Tuesday to discover our Chiat Christmas Bonuses had arrived!!! Pirate Hoodies!!!!! Word.

As much as we (what’s the word? oh yeah) …loved… 2011, we can’t WAIT to see what 2012 holds for lali and all the people lali holds dear.

So grab someone you care about and give them a big kiss!! You know, in case the Mayans were right and we only have a few months left.

XO until the new year!!!
