Things I Am Into At The Moment....

1. I am getting my haircut this afternoon. VERY excited...it is waaay too grown out. It's probably been about 10 weeks and I am supposed to go every 6 weeks. I think a haircut will help me with my yucky feeling I've been having...
2. Which takes me to the second point...I am HATING all my jeans. I have one pair I seriously like and one pair of cords that I like. Other than that, there is a lot of not attractive, tapered leg-looking Old Navy specials in my closet that just need to go. I am tempted to splurge on a really nice pair...any ideas? I am keeping an eye on these.
3. I DID go ahead and splurge on this when my girlfriends were in town a couple of weeks ago. I really love it! I think it makes a real difference...it gives me a more even, fresh, polished look. I still get excited when I pull it out in the morning. I am addicted to the fluff, tap, brush!
4. A new Christmas list (for myself) keeps running through my head daily. And it's not helping when I get cute catalogs in the mail with things I just really want to have or things that are so adorable I can hardly stand it!
5. O.k. - 2 weeks in a row of Sunday night dinners! Last night, I made my pal Barefoot Contessa's Lentil and Sausage soup. And when I say "pal," I mean, get one drink in me and I will do a 20 minute rant with impressions of Ina and Jeffrey walking down the beach. I am just saying...anyway, the soup was a hit and I think I will try the Healthy Choice smoked sausage next time...wasn't too into Jenni O's version. Not as flavorful.

That's about all I got on this blustering Monday....now can you work on getting Lucy to realize daylight savings HAS occured and by day #2 you should NOT be singing The Sound of Music at 6 a.m.? Great...thanks so much...

I am going to spare you my thoughts on fashion, but I can attest to the lentil soup. We have made that very recipe and frozen what we did not eat for many future meals.

I am offering a drink tonight for a Jeffery and Ina impression. I am thinking a pomegranate fizz. How great does that sound??? (I wish that I could put her cheesy laugh here as well).

(sorry for the re-post, but my grammar was not correct in the first one)

I'm feeling listy...
1. I love jeans. I have those jeans... they're ok. Butt stretches out immediately. Try the matchstick. Supercute.
2. How are you liking the bare minerals?? I've been very intrigued. I'm all malasma-ed and need some coverage... but never been a make-up kind of girl. Well, foundation kind of girl, I guess.
3. Cute sweater and slippers. I get that catalogue too. Cute stuff. I always want to order that grocery basket thingie. But really, would I remember to use it?? I never remember my canvas bags, let alone a big ole' basket.
4. Lentil and Sausage soup... Mmmm.

1. Thanks for the tip on the jeans! I do not want baggy butt!!!
Any other ideas?
2. I really enjoy the bare minerals specfically to hide the malasma...I feel you would enjoy the coverage without the "ashy" look I feel foundation gives.
3. I know the grocery basket thingie. I bet neither you or I would remember to use it. ha ha...

ok mommy, here's my tip on the jeans:

1)spend a little money on them and get yourself to that new boutique in your neighborhood "Hot Mama." They have great jeans. Stylish and long-lasting. But if forking over that kind of cash for jeans makes you nauseous, then Silver Jeans are the way to go. They fit really well and always makes the butt look good. (the latter can be purchased at Macy's!) haha. (get your butt into the one in Grandville and visit me.

2)I like Bare Minerals. I also love Bobbi Brown..natural. I wear that - it's "my perogative"..oh, wrong Bobby Brown..haha

3)Lentils have always freaked me out. Don't know why. But I love black beans and rice. cheap and tasty.

4)miss you!

Ok, Sarah. I'm afraid I'm going to have to suggest Joe's jeans. Yes, they require a bit more chicken than the JCrew lovelies...but wow, they never stretch out and return immediately to their shape each time you wear them/take them off!

How is the haircut? How was dinner?

I assume the cute catalog you speak of is Garnet Hill (just by the accompanying comments). Also always want to get the basket-thingie. Plus pretty much every pair of adorable, hip, $250 shoes/boots. Can you tell I was just downstairs looking at it?

1. Payless has a TON of adorable flats - go there! I wore flats all weekend in NYC and loved every second of it. Payless. I'm telling you.
2. Long and Lean Gap Jeans. F- J.Crew. haha. It's too expensive! But for real - pants are one thing you need to just spend some $$ on. Old Navy and Target Jeans aren't going to cut it.

so funny.
you never fail at cracking me up.
Love the Jcrew jeans- the flared leg is nice too.
I just ordered my first thing on line from there last week.
picked a sweater.
hit. buy now.
two days later a little package was on my doorstep.
fit perfectly.
yay!
no long line ups at the border (sadly no jcrew here yet)
could be dangerous this online shopping thing.

O.k. I just went to Target and got some nice (ha ha, for Target) brown mules to wear every day. I actually went to Payless, sister, and came up short! I do love the ballet flats in the fall - Sept. - Oct. But I get confused as it gets colder...do you not wear socks and then don't your feet freeze?
I am loving all this advice you crazy bastards!!! Keep it up!
