It's been so pleasant in the SE lately that I am almost embarassed to show how over-dressed I am here. But I wore this ensemble about two weeks back when the temps were a lot more teeth-chattering (though today's kind of gloomy-chilly - I may be sporting the puffy vest again today). I can't seem to stay away from the black and gold pairings when I've got this jacket on.
I feel kind of Stay Puff-ish when I try to pair a puffy anything underneath another layer (believe me, I chose the slimmest looking shots to share with you all), but I sure was warm. I sometimes wish I could be one of those super-slim gals who could pile on half their wardrobe in addition to some of the world’s largest scarves and still manage to look cute and trim.
Christmas shopping – half done. Though I have absolutely no idea what to get my parents. Am seriously considering giving them cash (so bad, I know!)
My full-bred knucklehead of a pup loves herself some brawny boys. She prefers to play with the biggest, most muscle-y canines at the dog park – boxers, pit bulls, rottweilers, you name it. She also has a thing for silver labs – she will always seek one out of they’re around. Must be the eyes.
Update on the hair situation: I listened to some of your advice from my previous post and started putting product on to wet hair (instead of after I dry it – I know, I know, read the directions on the bottles, right) and using the nozzle attachment thing for my blow dryer. Wow. What a difference already.
I haven’t done any serious food shopping since Thanksgiving. My pantry and frig are like barren wastelands of shriveled zucchini and random bottles of clam juice or cans of enchilada sauce. But I have unsalted saltines. And found out that Walmart is one of the few stores that still carry Cheese Nips (not Cheez-Its – never Cheez-Its). Win.
What sort of randomness is on your minds lately? How do you buy a gift for someone who pretty much has everything they want / doesn't want anything? And do you prefer layering for cold weather or just blocking it all out with some substantial outerwear?
