Opening Day!

SNOW!

We have snow!

I took Ivy to get new boots today. She had asked for PINK BOOTS for Christmas but we have our first snow today! Couldn't wait. And then of course I had to get her a fancy pink hand warmer muff because oh my goodness I had one when I was a little girl. She is still wearing it in the house. It has a little buttoned pocket and everything.

New snow new boots


The boots are L'amour from Piper in Valpo (as is the muff), dress is Beetlejuice via Gilt Kids, long sleeve tee from  Tea Collection (today is the last day for free shipping on any order! Use code: WOWFREESHIP ), and leggings are H & M.

I'm kind of boggled we are so close to Christmas. I am normally a little farther along with my shopping and am so not this year. I made a little gift guide with some local flair and online mentions as well over here today. And I do still want to make some food gifts for Christmas - getting ideas from gift baskets I see and thinking about how I can totally make something like that (I like the sea salt and seasonings idea.) But I said the same thing about creating our own wrapping paper and just bought three adorable rolls at Target last night, so. Anyway!

I'm also really glad I didn't post the super depressing stuff I wrote last night. Today is indeed a new day. Oh I still saved it in drafts and will be working on it accordingly.

My mom and I are going to see The Joffrey Ballet's The Nutcracker in Chicago (we have press tickets sweet) - it's opening night! and we have snow! happy! yay.

  5. When I was a little girl I had a matching hat, coat and muff. I know we get so caught up in all the things we'd like to do for Christmas but end up with no time. Perhaps we should write everything down that we want to do and do it next year starting in July. MMM wonder what it would be like to do Christmas cards in July?

  6. That first photo is priceless. And I dare not show baby girl because she will want those boots (and the muff, I am sure) with a fierce passion!

  7. You always find THE CUTEST clothes for Ivy! If I ever have a girl, I'd pay you to be her personal shopper :) Glad today met you with sunshine and warm feelings, instead of the blahs. Because you're sunshine to me!

  9. Happy day indeed:) The snow makes me so giddy, I can hardly stand it! I'm not so far along either but am eerily relaxed and calm this year, present and appreciative of every little drop of white snow and deep breath of crisp air:) And Ivy...are there words for this level of cuteness...goodness sakes:)

  13. I wish I'd had need for a hand warmer. No need, growing up in California.

    That first picture of Ivy is worthy of a magazine spot, or ribbon of some sort. It screams snow day excitement.
