Happy Thanksgiving!

On this day, we have a great tradition where we go around the table and everyone says what they're thankful for (takes a little bit because we have 40 members present)...so I thought I'd jump the gun and show some things that I'm thankful for:

Today (and every day) I'm thankful for Family & Friends (furry and human)
Tell me what you're thankful for?

Weekend Accomplishments

1. Survived a 7-hour bus ride with the Dartmouth Football team.
    -Highlight: Watching "Stepbrothers" with both players and coaches cracking up
    -Lowlight: Lot's of farting, burping and smellyness coming from the back of the bus

2. Found jeans that are AMAZING.  Have you ever found a pair of jeans that when you put them on you feel like a movie star...I tried on some Paige jeans on a whim and fell in love.  They are so amazing that I bought them in two colors and am considering selling all my other jeans and getting more...yes, they're THAT good.  Skinny jean fit with a flare at the bottom...they look so cute with clogs :)

3. Addressed all of my Christmas cards...(thank you 7-hour bus ride).  I can't wait to post it up here so you can all check it out!

4. Found an item for my Christmas list: Chan Luu bracelet...now I just need to figure out what color I want. I'm leaning towards black with pearls, thoughts? Check out all color combos here: http://www.chanluu.com/
5. Finally indulged in one of these: Grey cableknit "snood" from J.Crew. It updates any outfit and gives you the perfect "scarf look"...you know, like you just threw it on and it automatically fluffed itself ...so chic

6. Drank too much wine because....

7.  WE CRUSHED PRINCETON!!!!!!   31-0

Princeton, N.J. -- They screamed with joy, hugged each other with all their strength and dumped a cooler of melting ice on their coach as he gave a victory speech to a television reporter. Dartmouth's football players relished every minute of their 31-0 victory over Princeton yesterday, a season-ending triumph that gave the Big Green its first winning season in 13 years and its first shutout since 1996.

I think that just about wraps up my weekend! I hope that everyone else enjoyed theirs as well...

riding the football bus

Sorry for the lack of posts this week, I've had a lot going on and have been exhausted at night!

I'm currently on a bus full of football players (jealous) on the way to Princeton.

I promise to have some good posts coming up...I'm sure I'll have some stories from this bus ride!

Happy Friday!

Turquoise inspiration

 Just a little inspiration to get through the week...loving this color right now!

Right now I'm really into

J.Crew.  I was browsing their site earlier this evening and decided that I loved almost everything on there.  It may just be that I really like fall/winter clothes...the sweaters, cords and textures...but I think that J. Crew is just really nailing it right now.

Sometimes seeing all those cute clothes make me want to work in a place where I can get dressed up cute ever day instead of wearing black workout clothes...but then there are other days where I can barely wake up enough to pick out what to wear and am very excited that I can swear sweats and spandex.

 Santa, If you're reading this post, I'd like either of these bags...especially the "Gemini" (my sign) tote in black or gray under my tree this Christmas.  I'll be good I promise :)
 I am DYING over the cashmere "cocoon popover"...too bad it's $1200.  Note to J. Crew: why do you have such expensive stuff now...not cool.

And before you get a head of yourself...this by NO MEANS makes me an Alabama fan.  (wanted to get that off my chest before I move forward, and if you have no idea what I'm talking about then disregard it!)

I found myself attracted to a few images that all had houndstooth in them...how could I have forgotten how chic it can be!  Whether in curtains, notecards, dog leashes, pillows or my favorite: scarves!!!!

Hope you enjoy!

**sorry but I have no photo credits for these pics right now....

Wall Art

I thought this might be a cool thing for our house up here in New England.  In case y'all don't know, my hubby is a ski rep for a ski company that's based up here and he spends the winter traveling amongst ski shops and ski resorts in NE (In between trying to teach me to ski and deer hunting).
I love that it's a little rustic and local...hubby is from Stowe and went to a ski academy where he skied all of the above.  Maybe it's a good idea for a Christmas gift.

weekend purchases

I hope that everyone had a GREAT weekend...I did! Dartmouth and Florida won AND I scored these great purchases :)

New fur vest (I've been looking for one FOREVER and finally found one I love!) It's a 525 America rabbit fur vest...the perfect size and fit to go over a cute long sleeve top or thin sweater...can't wait to wear it.

The second thing is a pair of J Brand Houlihan Skinny Cargo pants in an olive green...I put up two pics of them above...thoughts?!!

Also, thanks to my bff Amy, I am currently addicted to the following 3 Songs:
1. Country Strong (Gwyneth Paltrow...who knew she sang country)!
2. Rhythm of Love (Plain White Ts)
3. The Only Exception (Paramore)

Things I covet from iomoi

I would REALLY like one of these small totes for Christmas...but there's so many choices for monograms/stripes that I can't decide!

Love this card holder. Looking at it makes me wish it were on my desk right now.

thoughts? go to iomoi now and look how cute everything is!
