A pop of pink


I saw these super cute shoes on Atlantic Pacific a little while ago and couldn't help but fall in love.  Bright pink - check!  Bows - check!  What more could I ask for?  Nothing!  I was even more pleasantly surprised that the Superfluity in Fuscia from BHLD were on sale for only $80, down from $300.  Unfortunately, the fuscia is sold out, but you can still snag them in ivory here.

Turkey Roundup

I have to say that having 3 Thanksgivings was a bit over the top, even for the Chan-clan.  On Thursday we went to my in-laws with my parents and my brother, Friday we had my aunt/uncle/cousin over, and Saturday there were 13 of us.

My favorite part?  Dessert of course!  3 homemade apple pies, a delicious fruit tart, wedding cake (from our wedding), and a new-found love for pecan pie!  How have I never had it before? I have no idea, but I will be having lots of it in the future.

I'm thankful for having friends and family, new and old, to celebrate the holiday with and hope that your gobble gobble day was as fun as ours was.

My new LBD


I absolutely love BHLD, and I guess that's no surprise since I love Anthropologie too.  During one of my previous trips to Chicago, and the BHLDN store, I went a little crazy snatching up everything I fell in love with.  I wore the Battened Down Dress to I&Y's wedding in Jamaica two weekends ago and received so many compliments on it.

So of course, the following week while I was in Chicago, I took my assistant to BHLD to try and find a dress for her boyfriend's brother's wedding right before x-mas.  We both fell in love with this cute Nexus dress with the all business front and the sexy back with bow detail.  The fact that the dress has pockets doesn't hurt either.  I've already taken mine out for a spin to a charity event for Little Baby Face Foundation, but I plan on wearing it to a lot more events in the not so distant future.

Lo and Sons Sale!


You may remember a post of mine from a couple of months back about Lo & Sons, this amazing company with super cute travel bags.  I took the splurge and bought the OMG in raspberry and am so thankful that I did because now it's sold out and I literally use it all the time!  Maybe it's because I cart my laptop around with me quite frequently, or I've been spending more time on the road than in my own city, but let's face it, a good bag is a good bag is a good bag.  And this my friends, is a pretty darned amazing bag.

With an extra zippered pocket that you can store shoes or other items you don't want touching everything else and two cell phone slots including a place to put both my cell phone chargers, my laptop charger, and my wireless mouse, an iPad slot separate from my laptop slot, and a nifty lobster claw to catch my keys, the bag is surely a keeper.

I was ecstatic when they came out with the OMG in plum, but post wedding brokeness has me really weighing my purchases and buying the same bag, albeit in another bright color, just seemed extravagant and not something I want to explain to the hubs.

HOWEVER, Lo & Sons is offering an additional 30% off from now until the end of January and extending their return policy for 45 days.  This is good news my friends. Use Code: Holidays2012 at checkout and receive your 30% discount.  Go.  Shop. Love.

Natty Noshers: Ginny and Jane




 

Last weekend was K's wedding down in Anna Maria, Florida.  I can't even believe that we're all grown up and that J is having a baby in all of 2.5ish months!

While down there, in between sneaking in work (whole other story), MES and I ventured over to Ginny & Jane's.  This cafe, internet stop, and ... thrift store! was the cutest thing ever.  Fantastic breakfast on an eclectic mix of tables and desks, all for purchase, made this place just absolutely adorable.

I was a big fan of the sausage and provolone omelette while MES went the route of waffles with fresh berries and whipped cream.  Both delicious.  My fluffy omelette was made whole with unlimited refills of coffee.  Nothing super spectacular there, french roast, hazelnut etc, but the drinks of the day looked amazing and I wish I had gone back to get the watermelon and strawberry smoothie.  Doesn't that sound delish?

If you ever find your way down to Anna Maria, definitely stop by this cafe, pull up a chair, and dig in.

One of My Favorite things

I'll be one of the first people to admit that I am slightly obsessive.  I saw a super cute "after" bachelorette mugshot pic on pinterest ages ago and I just couldn't wait to do my own.  Our "after" shots weren't shareable so I decided to share our before shot.  I made this up for all of my bmaids in an 8x10 and gave it to them as part of their bridesmaid gift, more on that some other time because I really do like what I put together for them, duh!

Presents Galore


We are overwhelmed by the generosity of our friends and family.  At some point I will have to take a picture of the heap of boxes that has infiltrated my childhood bedroom.  Almost our entire registry was taken care of and with the monetary gifts MES and I decided to put 50% towards our down payment fund and 50% towards furnishing since our total belongings furniture-wise can fit into 400 sq feet.

I can't wait to host a dinner party in our new home which we probably won't have for quite some time, on our new china!  :)  Yay!

'til next time
