Missing You.

20 Dec
Cozy Cabin Cream Leggings from

You won’t believe what happened this evening. As we were parking the car I turned to my husband and professed that it felt so strange to be coming home without plans to blog. Turns out that taking the weekend off was plenty of time away. I missed my baby! It happened, it’s become a habit. That’s what thirty days straight will do to you. I think this might have been Kendi’s secret master plan. She looks cute but she might just be devious like that.

I’ve officially navigated the holiday season quite well. I have one gift left to buy, (yipee!) I’m not stressed, hung over, sick or have bad hair. Remember that list I made last week? Just in case you missed it:

  • Christmas card designed and mailed, no YES!
  • Christmas tree purchased, no YES!
  • Christmas decorations installed, no  YES!
  • Christmas presents made, no YES! 1 more to go, I just decided it’s a New Year present!
  • Christmas baking planned, no, (it’s ok, there’s still time)
  • Baking ingredients purchased, no YES!
  • Holiday parties attended, yes, one

And just because I really like making lists and crossing things off, I’ve added a few more items:

  • Decorated Christmas tree, YES!
  • Had friends over for dinner in Christmas-y house, YES!
  • Gave gifts to team at work, YES!
  • Had hair done, YES!
  • Maintained running schedule, YES!

You’ll see that I’ve progressed quite well, if I may say so myself. By the way, where did this expression come from? It’s totally redundant. Who else is saying so? I resolve to stop using it. Yes, in fact, it will be one of my New Year’s resolutions.

Since I didn’t want to leave you hanging you’ll notice I posted a little eye candy. Yes, I am referring to the happiness that is also known Cozy Cabin Cream Leggings from I bought them. I admit it was an impulse purchase. I really had no idea how on earth you wear these things, let me tell you, it’s like a cross between some bad childhood sweater I had and 1974 ski movie there on my legs. I was too curious to pass up that experience.

A few minutes foraging through the forest that is my closet and I came up with not just one, but two outfits. The second is a bit fun although I may wear it to work on a dare to myself. If you’ve been good, I’ll show you the first of the two tomorrow. Ok, I’ll show you if you’ve been naughty, too. I’m more flexible with that kind of stuff than Santa. Just sayin’. Santa’s alright and everything but I don’t care too much if you’ve been sleeping or if you’re awake. Just as long as you’re happy!
