Monday Listicles

Brrrr. Baby it’s cold out there!

Oddly enough, although I am not a big shopper cold weather always makes me want to go out and spend money. Not sure if I just like winter outfits better or feel like I could do with another jacket but I find myself browsing online stores for warm shoes and clothes a lot this time of the year. Lucky for me there are great deals to be found. I was just laughing with hubby today about my latest purchase, a fancy and very expensive down vest that I scored for under $30. It is so warm and perfect except for the fact that it is the ugliest bright blue color ever. Even the name is awful, sea glass. But the black one was over $200 and I am at the point in my life where price and functionality wins over style. We went for a hike and Bruce decided to take a dip in the stinkiest black mud pond ever. After I washed him when we got home I realized he rubbed all over my new vest which is now more black then sea blue. Guess Bruce turned my $30 vest into a $200 one in 2 minutes flat. But if any of you know how to get black mud stains out of clothes, I will appreciate it. Otherwise I must get back out there and roll the back of the vest in the mud soon…

So if you are anything like me and in a shopping mode these days listicle will be a breeze this week. I was going to write about how all I want for Christmas is being with my loved ones and world peace but lets be real, I need some fluffy socks so I am totally sending this list to Santa. Join me!


Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!



1. 100 acres somewhere remote in Alaska by the ocean.

2. Fluffy, warm socks.

3. Anything from Fox and the fawn store. She is on vacation right now but these rings were made by Kayla:

4. Flannel shirt (I have no idea what is wrong with me).

5. Nice, warm PJs.

6. Bear canister.

7. These cups.

8. One of these calendars featuring my dogs.

9. Boozy chocolate truffles.

10. Peace on Earth (just in case Santa reads this after all).

    Those all sounds wonderful. Just makes me want to curl up inside, veg out in cozy clothes by a fire and read – and eat chocolate! ;) Happy Holidays!

    Looks like the cold is actually stretching from coast to coast this weekend! Warm pajamas are a must, though I’m not sure I’m on board with the flannel shirt! Thanks for hosting!

      Thank you Kyle. It is surreal to see my boys all over the internet. But it makes me so happy to know that they bring joy. I really hope our paths cross one day and our kids get to have a fun playdate!!

    Everyone needs fuzzy socks! And 100 acres sounds lovely, but I’m thinking by a beach in Hawaii. Probably too much to ask for…

    The calendar of your dogs would be so cute! You should do a calendar with the pictures of J and the dogs in front of the garage and give it to your husband : )

One Trackback

  1. […] Whenever someone asks me ‘what do you want for Christmas,’ I’m at a loss for words…I am more interested in finding out what everyone else would like. I really don’t make Christmas lists, but if I had to, this is what this year’s would look like. Share yours with Stasha from the good life on this week’s Monday Listicles Linky list. […]
