Things That Make Me Smile Today


Chilly day for the Carolina's... High of 52, I think?...

Listening to James Taylor's "One Man Band" on repeat (best live album everrrr)...

Keeping the laundry going (love the warm smell of fabric softener in the dryer!)...

Getting *real* kisses from my tot, who woke up in an alarmingly good mood...

Adoring my drapes (that I sewed all by myself!) and beginning the process for the ones in the bedroom...

Prancing around the house in cozy grey tights and an Urban Outfitters mini (because I can)
(also because I snagged a bunch of them at UO this weekend for less than $10 a piece
and I'm still gloating)...

Trying to comfort my left ankle, it's been sore after long runs lately... R.I.C.E., right?...

And brainstorming turkey day options for my vegetable + dessert contribution this year to thanksgiving w my fam in the SC mountains... Thinking lowfat Pumpkin Cheesecake w Gingersnap crust (recipe from EatingWell)... And a sautéed, creamy version of whatever veg's my farmer neighbor is selling on his little cart next week... Ummmm. I love thanksgiving!

Just like I love being a Carolinian today. :)

Also, shout out to Nordstrom, who alone of all the department stores in the Mall, is committed to waiting til after Thanksgiving for decking their halls! Aaaaaa-mennnn! I do not condone Christmasish until the afternoon of laying around completely stuffed and drowsy with turkey and cranberry sauce... That's the day to start humming along to "White Christmas".

I guess when you're Nordstrom you aren't too worried about the race for consumers. ;)
