On Saturday morning, our group of 15 awoke ready to party it up! We were a little too excited for SantaCon to begin!!!
Our trip to New York City centered around the celebration of my friend Leah’s 30th birthday. Since Leah’s birthday is December 5, combining her birthday celebration with SantaCon, a "nonsensical Santa Claus convention that happens for absolutely no reason," made perfect sense and gave all of us a fabulous excuse to dress up like goofballs and have a good time!
To quote my friend Laurel, "SantaCon is proof that no one ever really wants to grow up" and we’re all just big kids inside. Yes! Stay young at heart, my friends.
Though I’ve heard about SantaCon from Merri before, I don’t think anything could’ve prepared me for the ridiculously fabulous holiday mayhem that surrounds this festive event. It was a blast and I’d love to go again!
We initially planned to make it out at night, but once we made it back to Merri and Pete’s apartment and Pete ordered pizzas for all of us, I was in no mood to head back out into the cold. Lounging at Merri and Pete’s place and eating pizza and ice cream sounded like the perfect end to SantaCon to me.
Thank you so much to Merri and Pete for hosting us this weekend and to our wonderful college friends for such a memorable SantaCon experience. I love you guys and had the best time!!!

I really like the quilt patch tie front dress from Maternal America, but I would also LOVE a new pair of tall boots. My feet got bigger after my son was born and mine are quite snug! Thanks! Have fun in NYC!”
