Merry Christmas


Merry Christmas to all those that I didn't send a card to. And also to the others, i.e. Ashley N., Ashley R., and Cami, and a few others, whose cards are still in my purse.

These are the things I find when I stay up late chatting with my husband on the computer. All things I want to do, that will go in my folder on my desktop and probably never come out again. But wouldn't it be so great if they did?

Red Dress

About a year ago I saw a gorgeous red dress in Anthropologie. Of course I wanted it, but I couldn't afford it. And I've ALWAYS wanted a red dress. Now I check mod cloth and I see this one. I want it. $90.00. I have no problem spending that amount of money on a dress, because the dresses I have in my closet I have had for years. And this one is bright, hip and long enough. But Hy's in school and it's not in the budget. Seriously . . . I'm trying to figure out how to swing it. And then I'm also telling myself that it would show up and not fit right and I'd be disappointed--that's how I try to make myself feel better.

For those who knew me from any time prior to 1996 or so, you may be wondering what my best friend is up to. I did some photos for her and I thought I'd share. She has a fabulous husband, super cute and cool kids, and she runs a preschool. More on my photo blog.

Tooth Fairy

This kid. I tell you. Is always a good time.

She lost her first tooth, and the tooth fairy came and even left some fairy dust (pink sugar cookie decorating crystals)

She came to me the next morning,

"Mom, the tooth fairy came and brought money. And there was fairy dust"

"But there is a problem. I sprinkled some on me, and Annabelle sprinkled some on me and I STILL can't fly!"

(which reminded me of when I encouraged her to try harder when she was trying to fly once)

And then when she came home from school today she said, "Close your eyes . . . now open your mouth . . and don't peek"

Then she put a sticker on my shirt. Why she had me open my mouth??? No idea.

Remember when I talked about my favorite new lipgloss in THIS post?

Well you can get some at this boutique. I'm sure it will be filled with super cool stuff besides the lipgloss.

So go get some What's your Virtue lipgloss and other goods.

Buy it --now

This is a MUST this holiday. I saw the title in Target and started reading it when I realized that OF COURSE it was written by Mo Willems--our favorite childrens author.

You see, he write books for adults disguised as childrens books. So both mother and child enjoys.

This one is fantastic.

Trader Joe's dark chocolate Sea Salt Caramels

So amazingly delicious! If you like sweet and salty--this is your gig. Course chunks of sea salt on top with dark chocolate.

The description on the box reads:

Buttery smooth caramels drenched in Belgian chocolate, then sprinkled with crunchy rock salt from the Dead Sea.

That's right my friends. Just one is all you need.
