30 Nov’s Fiona heel, so ladylike and sassy…originally $325….the price I paid? $39!! I sufficiently think there are no additional words needed!!


it’s christmas time again!

30 Nov

In the past I have waited until the last minute to even try to figure out my Christmas gifts for my loved ones, but this year, on the last day in November, I’m almost completely done!! Yayyy, for this entirely grown-up achievement! I have been very blessed this year (in more than a few ways), and so I have bought some awesome gifts this year! *patting myself on the back* I actually have had lots of fun shopping for others this year, probably because there’s been a few gifts thrown in for myself! JK!! I’ve always been the type of person who loved doing for others, but life takes turns, as we all know, and sometimes bad feelings spill over into other aspects of life…blah blah blah! But the last couple of years I feel myself growing, making better choices, surrounding myself with better people, growing wiser, liking myself more, and to top all of that…I’m in the most amazing relationship…and frankly…what’s better than good love? Not much in my book! So as we embark on this holiday season, and I attend my first tree trimming party of the season, I am grateful and smiling from ear to ear!

holiday fever

25 Nov

So our trip to Western Maryland was the We’ve all concurred that what happened at the resort…stays at the resort, just like Vegas! But we definitely had too much fun!! However, last weekend started off my holiday sluggishness, and I think I’m in for some t.r.o.u.b.l.e., especially the day before and after thanksgiving. And with multiple birthdays coming up in December and January (including mine), Christmas, and New Years, I’m not exactly sure when enthusiasm for work will increase! Ah well, the lack of enthusiasm for my job is for an entirely different post, but the holidays have made it hit an all time low. Is anyone else experiencing this same holiday fever?

happy thanksgiving!!

22 Nov

I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday. Don’t eat too much! 🙂

Happy Friday!!

16 Nov

Today is the day that we all leave for our mini weekend vaca. We’re all packed up (re: over packed!) and ready to go! Because we live further north than the rest of our friends also going, the caravan of trucks will be picking us and our truck up at noon. Plus it’s Friday, and it just doesn’t get much better than that! Have a great weekend everyone!!

paperless post

15 Nov

As I have indicated in a  previous post ‎, I am a purist in a lot of different ways.  One additional way is that I love, love, love snail mail notes. Handwritten thank you notes, typed invitations, or even just a little note to say hello! My first job ever was at a famous card store, and I continued to work there part-time for years (way too long in my opinion now!). No wonder I love an actual card!! However, in the age of technology  it’s becoming more and more old-fashioned for me to send out my note cards. There are still some people who appreciate my cards by mail, ie older people, but for the more modern people….I introduce you to Paperless Post. It’s like actual fabulous cards, that you can send electronically (not anything like a bloody e-card…blahhh).  They even have Kate Spade cards, and anyone who knows me knows that I heart Kate Spade (even some Jack Spade pieces…my babe just got a cutie Jack Spade tote bag). And so, if only for the K Spade pieces, I am very happy for this new find of mine. Make sure you check it out!

a seemingly unlikely pair

11 Nov

I hope I am not the only one who has heard of the alliance of Target with Neiman Marcus for a holiday collection. I am too stoked! Anyone who knows me knows that I L.O.V.E. Target, and even though my wallet doesn’t fully appreciate Neiman Marcus, I still manage to get them to play together every once in a while! LOL! But this holiday collection…talk about mixing high and low. And the few items that I’ve seen from the collection…simply gore!
