This winter’s been a season of storms here in Chicagoland.  Thank goodness it’ll be over soon.  Right?! Soon???

So my favorite things of winter?  Lots of warm~

1. Land’s End Coat:  Let’s face it, you need a puffer coat up here, frostbite is not a good look for anyone.  But it’s nice to have on that’s not the ubiquitous black that I see on everyone else~


2. Born Boots: These I got years ago, they’re lined in flannel and so warm!


3. Gold Owl Earrings: I inherited these from my grandmother.  Adorable gold owl studs~


4. My crockpot and this recipe~


5. Cozy foxy flannel pajamas.  (No idea where these came from, they were a gift.) Toasty warm!

Last Minute Gift Ideas

It’s the weekend before Christmas, and I know a lot of people haven’t gotten all their presents yet, judging by how crowded the parking lots are.  So if you’re looking for a last minute gift, here are some recommendations for anyone on your list:

Land’s End Gloves:



Gloves are great for guys and gals, and everyone loses them, so they’re always welcome!

Or how about this adorable hoodie?



So cute and unique~

Foodie treats are *always* a great present.  I’d love to get this:

TJs-Joe-Joes-VarietyI love me some Trader Joe’s cookies.  These look fabulous!

Or how about something for the chef in your life?



I have the white one, (a present from an awesome friend’s mom!) and I use it constantly!  These are great and last forever~

So good luck shopping out there, and remember that what really counts is the love behind the gift.

It’s so hot in Chicagoland, you’d think it was summer or something!  It’s so hot, I’m too lazy to try anything new or fun today, so I’m just relying on my tried-and-true staples: the favorite things of summer.  My favorite things tend to fluctuate based on the weather, so here are this season’s miss congenialities of the closet…

Jewelry: my new beaded earrings from Chicago Bead Company:

These glass beads have three little stripes, gold, black and a delicate green

Clothing: Old Navy striped shorts that I got on sale for $3! and my Kohl’s explosion of summer tee.

Food: Almond Milk Pancakes and Mexican Rice with Enchilada Sauce

Song: Allison Krauss “Jacob’s Dream”  (Warning, this song is so sad, you will cry like a little girl I’m not even kidding)
