Current favorites/weaknesses/loves...

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on Kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens, brown paper packages tied up with string...

These are a few of my (current) favorite things!
A cup of hot apple cider or homemade hot chocolate almost every night...

I feel kinda bad having a wish list so soon after Christmas, but I think this watch is adorable.


I'm loving TOMs ballet flats arriving this spring!

I love the knife I gave Dave for our 5th anniversary. We try to stick to the traditions for fun and 5 years is wood. He gave me a lovely wooden frame and some gorgeous earrings (not wood :)


As my mom always says, "leopard is a neutral", and I'm loving my new leopard flats I got on super sale at the J.Crew outlet! I have my sister to thank for the tip!



My new wine glasses I pretty much stole from Anthropologie! Before Christmas their sale stuff was take an additional 50% off and I got these for $5 each!! I'm in love. Too bad they only had 5 left...I would have bought 12 if they had them.



Don't even get me started. This ice cream rocks my world and unfortunately, it's rocking my waste line! We bought this before Christmas and I just finished it last week. I'm literally willing myself not to go get more before it disappears! It's a seasonal flavor. I won't even tell you how it's a slice of Heaven when you put a scoop on top of a brownie...I'm so naughty.



In keeping with the food theme...I've only experienced this greatness once in my life, but I had these delicious pumpkin-spice waffles with apple cinnamon butter, roasted pecans and dried cranberries at Penelope in NYC during "Sister Trip 2011" and it was beyond...It's the things better dreams are made of. :)


When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad....I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad! ~ Frauline Maria

I'm with you lady! I want the TOMS flats, too. I was browsing Kohl's last week and found some leopard flats from LC's line (only $18!!). Let's embrace the tween in us more often. :)

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for putting a new song in my head. And from my favorite movie! Hopefully now I'll sing "Favorite Things" all day instead of the Gaston song from Beauty and the Beast. There's been too much of the Disney Pandora station going on at my house lately!

Now if only you could transport that waffle to me... Randomly, I've eaten at Penelope's and it is too cute!

All that food looks delish! I also went to the Anthro sale and got a nice necklace for $10 :) I wish they would have more sales like that! I love those wine glasses.

Those flats are adorable! Did you just get them? Might be worth me checking out our store.

I was going to text you again today and tell you how one of MY favorite things is absolutely the mug with the fun drink. Mine is cinnamon tea with honey and milk. Have it every day now! YUM.

Those TOMs flats are perfect! I will definitely keep my eye out for them. I love the knife gift idea, it's such a creative and personal gift.

I love the wood idea! Im going to have to take note of that!
Question for you- My one year anniversary is coming up, and paper being the gift... I have no idea what to get him! I was originally wanting to get him tickets of some kind... but I dont have anything to buy tickets for! What did you get Dave?
ALSO... We are trying to plan a last minute anniversary weekend getaway.. and Barton Creek was brought up. Am I mistaken or did you post about going there once on your blog? Either way.. What are your thoughts?
