I hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of the new year, I was able to spend some time in Windsor and crossed the border to watch a football game (Lions lost) and do some shopping (Blazer & button down from Brooks Brothers, tailored perfection). While in Windsor I scored a pair of skinny Yoga Jeans for $40, I almost fainted from excitement.
Next year we’re instituting a “No More Toys from Friends & Family” rule. I didn’t even let them open all the toys they got. Why? They play with the new toy for a minute and off to the next new toy etc., then complain they have nothing to play with. Some of my in-laws thought I was being a bit of a Scrooge when I suggested they not purchase toys for my children, then they saw the boxes pile up and realized Santa and presents form mom and dad were more than enough. Am I alone in feeling this way?
Any style resolutions made? I think mine should be to buy less quantity and more quality.
When I purchases this vest I wasn’t sure about keeping it, I’m glad Tina talked me into it. I think you’ll be seeing more of this piece…
I also wanted to announce the winner of my giveaway with Lilla P. Congratulations:
Eva Hartman Ptaschinski!!
Your gift card is ready, enjoy.
I won’t be posting very frequently in the next two (maybe even three) weeks, kids at home and then back to school after the holidays seem to have taken over my life.
