Exactly when did it get to be the first of December? I sort of kind of feel like my favorite season of fall breezed by in a flash. In honor of the first of December (rabbit, rabbit!) here is my short list of gift-wishes! Gilded Herringbone Classic Toms.
I've been quite wishy washy about Toms. I love their mission. I love how comfy they are. I even had them on my birthday wish list and my now husband gave me a gift certificate for a pair (which ended up getting turned into work shoes instead.) I thought the white soles of the summer collection were ugly. Enter herringbone & glitter & neutral soles. Sparkly hearts.
Can't you see me frolicking amongst the (mostly dormant) grape-vines in Napa over New Years in these babys?
I have a blog-crush on the ever snarky and fabulous Pioneer Woman and her food.
Naturally the next stage is her cookbook.
I love to read. I love to read in bed. I think I drive my morning-person husband nuts with my light & page turning at night. The solution? A nook! I thought I was a kindle girl 'til I realized I can read blogs on the nook, & check out books from my local library on the nook, & read magazines on my nook. I want to be a nook girl. (I am also a big fan of my local library.) Perfection I do say.
Call me Mrs. Shiverpants, I am always cold. I think my co-workers might think I own stock in cardigans. I realize I live in the south & a down coat might seem a bit excessive but let's review: last winter was COLD & it snowed, like, 4 times. It is very cold & dark when Pete goes on morning walks that I must get out of my cozy warm bed to go on. (Have I mentioned that my husband is the morning person of the family that usually leaves Pete & myself in bed for at least an hour before we get up?)
I think this $99 landsend turquoise option is a winner. REI had some cute ones on black Friday specials (one of 4 stores I was able to get the badger into the day after Thanksgiving) but you can't beat old faithful lands end!
Happy December 1st!
