Wish List...

All this shopping talk has my head spinning. My little list is always handy in my blackberry, ready to edit at any moment.






First on the list because they are almost sold out is this adorable J. Crew Sweater. It is so cute and comes in a few different color combinations. The J. Crew in Jacksonville had a bunch of them..so don't go by the mean website message that they are sold out!





A few weeks ago, I saw these adorable gold huggies in my friend's ears and fell in love with them. When she told me they were from Ross-Simons, I almost died. They are waiting to be purchased by moi any day...






A new computer...I must be the last one not on the Mac bandwagon. I am in desperate need..my laptop is half in the grave! I can't wait to get my hands on this one.




I still don't have a headboard...this is the one I want, from Ballard Design. It will be in my bedroom before Spring if it kills me.

I will keep this updated...I am still thinking...

Black Friday Resort Style

Being on Amelia Island for Thanksgiving is so much fun...but doesn't leave too many options for Black Friday shopping. My blackberry was about to blow up with emails from Old Navy and the Gap. The closest Old Navy is 20 miles away. I begged my Mom to take me there, knowing that it could be a complete zoo. We got there and unbelievably, it was one of those times where I didn't see anything I had to have. Feeling horrible for wasting gas, I picked out some $5 leggings and a $7 long sleeve t-shirt. We also popped into Michael's. I haven't been there in a long time and could not get over how much jewelry making materials they have there! No wonder everyone in the world makes jewelry these days!


The only other place I wanted to hit was my beloved Plantation Shop. I get the pictures on Facebook with all of their furniture shipments and one piece is prettier than the next. This trip did not disappoint.




I am in LOVE with this piece...there were tons of amazing pine pieces.



Cute pillows on this nice bench

It is so pretty there..with tons of different types of displays...


This gorgeous piece had a SOLD sign on it



These lamps are on my official wish list!



Lots of books..



Tons of candles...



and holiday displays all around..



All the ornaments are 50% off

Up the Coast...

Today, I am driving from Dade to Nassau..straight up the coast of Florida..with a little stop in Palm Beach. My car is full of laundry and beads, a dangerous combination. Can't wait to see the fam and my little Millie. I haven't seen her since Christmas-the longest stretch without her yet. I stopped by Fresh Market on my way to work to get some nuts and it was nuts in there! The lines were crazy. I am happy to get out of Miami for a few days and enjoy some cooler weather. Stay tuned for great deals this weekend!

Carnival Birthday for Elizabeth

A couple of weeks ago, I attended little Elizabeth's first birthday. Her Mom created a county fair of sorts in her parent's back yard. The weather was amazing and all her cousins were on hand to celebrate the big day.





There was a big slide...

Lots of face painting...







A cotton candy machine...

A visit from Yo Gabba Gabba's Foofa...



An adorable cake...


Trail rides...



Cute cousins...



Elizabeth tasting her cake...



Ashley on her pony...

With Foofa...

Devon, David and I

The party was so much fun..I had a blast.

He'll Always Be Will Tippin To Me...

My goodness..the uproar over this year's People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive is a little crazy. Sure Ryan Goesling is super cute, but it's not like they picked Kermit the Frog..they picked Bradley Cooper-or as I call him, Will Tippin. He has been on my radar since my Alias obsessed days. Playing Jennifer Garner's BFF in that show, he was the classic overlooked friend character who was madly in love with the leading lady. They eventually hooked up, but not until at least Season 3!





Just FYI, I hated him with Renee Zellweger and even though I love some J Lo, they were not a great match. I think Scarlett Johannson..they had great chemistry in "He's Just Not Into You".





I say People did a great job. What a cutie!

St. Philips Holiday Bazaar


Today is one of my favorite days of the year, the St. Philip's Holiday Bazaar. So many of my friends are Moms at this school, so I get to see fun people and hopefully, sell lots of stuff. I have made as much jewelry as I can this week and now my cold has caught up with me.

In one of my recent Fornash packages, I ordered the long gold horse bit necklace. I keep finding myself wearing it! It is so cute long and also doubled up. It is such a steal at $45.



It went perfect with my new Gap equestrian pants I snagged this weekend in black with my 40% off coupon.



Also in my recent Fornash package was these new leather bracelets. I am LOVING them and can't wait to show people this week.




Tomorrow is the St. Thomas Holiday Bazaar, my other favorite day...busy week!
