Head to toe we match you know.
Together watching the falling snow,
Staying warm beside the fire, looking out the window.
I’m loving everything you say and do,
Tell you when you say you feel it too,
I’m gonna say that you’re the one, and that my search is done.
‘Cause you,
You make me feel,
That everything is going right,
That I can go to sleep tonight,
And awake to find you here.
You make me feel,
That everything is going right,
That I can go to sleep tonight,
And I wake up to your voice, down, blankets and pillows.

Additions to the Christmas List

I forgot a few things...

Love Owl City. It's a one-man show and all of his music is Christian-based. He's fantastical.

Pastry Cutter - Essential!

Anthropologie Giraffe Measuring Spoons. These sold out and I'm dying to find some. :(

Christmas List!

I never do this, but I started writing down little things that I realize I need whenever it pops into my head. It added up to quite a lot...

Rice Cooker - Essential!

Tree Jewelry Rack. I am so impressed with Urban Outfitters (of course I am, they are a subsidiary of Anthropolgie) because they have the most wonderful selection of jewelry racks. I'll take them all!

Harry Potter 7 - obviously.

Chocolate Wax. I'm obsessed with waxing.

Ice Cream Maker - Essential!

Teeth Whitening so I can show off my pearly whites.

glamazon |ˈglaməˌzän; -zən|noun informala glamorous, powerfully assertive woman.

this weekend was GREAT. i am such a little homemaker sometimes. what makes us go back and forth between two lives? for me it's ultimate career woman ('slash' b-i-t-c-h sometimes) to bible-reading maid and chef. no complaints here, just curiosity about human nature.

but i cleaned the entire apartment, which felt fantastic. then i finally put up the shelf above the tv and decorated it with the wine bottles i have been saving. it looks really good if i do say so myself. and i ran lots of errands that needed to be done. and i slept in saturday AND sunday.

LOVE this dress. love love love love love love love lvoe love love lvoelove. my sweet little blog

I hope everyone had a great Halloween! I went low-key this year. Me and Mona got silly and dressed up as Boy Scouts. I also donned a nautical ritzy yacht costume complete with a blowup fish. We had a special photo shoot, the fish and I. :) Anne laughed at us and then joined in on the fun by dressing up in one of Mona's authentic Persian dresses. That was a great photo shoot!

I'm cooking the pumpkin that I carved for Halloween. Should I make pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bread, roasted pumpkin and vegetables, pumpkin casserole....? Possibilities are endless!
