Lucy's new bag

Happy Week before Christmas...!

I was up in Burlington, VT this past weekend and went into the CUTEST store...if you're ever up there it's called Monelle, and it is right on Church Street.

I stopped in to see what was new and low and behold they were having a Kate Spade sale! It must have been fate!

Workout dog also happened to be with me...luckily...because a Kate Spade dog carrier caught my eye! And...It was on SALE!

Take a peek:

I am in LOVE with it, and more importantly, so is Lucy!

Although I must say, I took my time deciding on this purchase. I was with Matt so I saw it, tried it out, then left the store to think about it.

I thought about it for about 10 minutes before we went back in and Matt treated Lucy (and me!) to her new bag.

I am still coming up with more gift ideas so stay tuned...!

Tom Brady and wife Gisele finally named their baby: Benjamin. For how long it took them to decide, I was thinking it would be something creative. Don't get me wrong, I like the name Benjamin, but it was a letdown when I read that this morning on people.com.

If you had a baby boy tomorrow, what would you name it?

My top choices would be:
1. Jack
2. Carter

Let me know!

Great Finds

Okay, so this past weekend I went to Chicago! It was a great weekend full of lots of shopping, laughing and (maybe too much) drinking!

On my shopping expeditions I stumbled upon some great gift ideas, Check them out!

Don't you just LOVE kate spade.

Another one of my great finds also comes from Kate Spade...but it's a gift you can give yourself!

For those of you with poor vision (like me :( ) you know how expensive new glasses can be! Upwards of $400-! However, while browsing the reading glasses section at Bloomies, I stumbled upon some adorable reading glasses, for only $65. Then a thought came to me....why not buy those frames and have the optician put in the correct prescription lenses! It was my AHA! moment of month!

The frames I chose are similar to these:

Happy Shopping!

Best Basic

The L.L. Bean is my absolute favorite basic item to give/receive. It is one of those classic staples that never goes out of style, and better yet - they literally get better with age (softer, more flexible and "worn in").

I bring this item up because in honor of the holiday season, I will be listing my top gift choices for this year.

The classic L.L. Bean tote is good for any occasion: baby shower (fill with baby goodies), bridal shower (monogram with new initials), bridesmaids gifts, new home gift (a realtor friend of mine has these embroidered with the client's last name as a housewarming gift), new boat...it can really fit any situation, and, best of all...It's inexpensive!

L.L. Bean has even updated the line to add more options:
-New colors
-Designs (argyle anyone?)
