like facebook status' for keeps

This book is great (and on back order - boo hoo!). It has space on each page for 5 years of entries. For example, the January 29th page has 5 spaces to enter something from your day in 2010, 2011, 2012.... you get the idea. So, as your years move on, you can look back and see patterns or recall misplaced memories from what you previously put on the page. I love the idea for many reasons, but one major one is that what mother has time to journal, and don't we always have great things to share? Think about Facebook status's - little memories and ideas that have meaning. I love this book - and if it doesn't get off back order soon, I might just make my own!

I have been looking for the perfect boots for the last 5 years and lo - here they are.

and i bought them. for three hundred dollars. seriously. i can die now.

edit: these just came in the mail, and they were not worthy of the praise i gave them. i am sad. i thought i had found the ones......
now to bellevue to return them :( sigh.

happy tape

seriously people - i almost died when i saw this stuff in martha's magazine last month, and this morning i finally got over to their site. WOW! SO COOL! one of my fave things it wrapping presents and making cards. this stuff would be perfect! and the best part is - it's WAY less expensive than ribbon ($6 for 50 feet instead of $4 for 8 feet!). i'll let you know when i finally get some and how i use it!

i went shopping at the new bellevue anthropologie location tonight. here's what i got (+ a pair of tights):

LOVE THAT STORE! seriously - every thing i tried on fit beautifully and made me feel so chic and glam. therefore, one of my new years resolutions is to buy one (clothing) item from this store each month this year. enhance my wardrobe with things that make me feel beautiful, since my presonal trend it to care for myself more when i feel pretty (iow - i eat more crap when i look/feel like crap. who wants to eat doritos in this dress? a nice cup of lentil soup with a side salad sounds much better, thank you!)
