Nod Chairs.

Love these new designs.  On the Christmas list for Eloise...which one...Paris or the Circus?  Thoughts?  On that note, any fun toys your 1-2 year son/daughter/niece/nephew/neighbor/friend's child loves?  I'd love to hear!
And p.s.  I am trying a new format blogger is offering.  Do you like it?  I'm not sure what to think.

In preparation...

...for the most wonderful time of the year, these sweet felt trees from The Land of Nod.  I am SO looking forward to Christmas.  My favorite time of year in general, but this year it will be even sweeter for many reasons.  

Things are going so fast and so slow all at the same time right now.  I literally thought I wrote my last post a few days ago.  It was two weeks!  Argh.  My second set of finals will occur in less than a week.  I am attempting not to freak out every day.  Attempting, not so much doing.  My mind is so small, and there is so much to know.  Pray pray pray, Colleen, and trust that God will bring you through what he brought you to...  :)  You might see a few study break relief posts in the next few days, and if not, I'll see you all in a few weeks!  Oh, and maybe one more post tonight...

Cut it.

Hi, friends.  This is like a 'hi, I'm going to have a conversation with you via blog since I don't get to talk to you all much right now.'  
So, I cut my hair.  About 5 or 6 weeks ago.  Sadly, I have not seen many people in the past 6 weeks that anyone other than school friends and a few people would know.  Maybe my books and my iPad have noticed?  Perhaps the coffee lady in the library?  The first week I didn't regret it.  It really does take less time.  Starting week two, I started regretting it.  And now I want my long hair back.  I knew this would happen.  How silly.  It really isn't that short, but short enough.   Ponytail-viable, though.  That's important.  I took in a photo of Olivia Palermo's cut as a guide.  And I know I don't look like Olivia Palermo.  That is obvious.  But my hair stylist did a really great cut.  I trust her.  I just want my hair back.  My layer of comfort.  So, I try to curl it to make me feel better.  It will grow.  Yes,…

Owl Hat.

For Eloise this winter?  What do you guys think?  Have you seen any other cute winter baby hats?

DVF iPad bag.

I like DVF.  Really, how can you not?  But this?  This is genius. And absolutely gorgeous.
Stunning bag.  With an iPad opening on the side.

I am in love with this take on a monogram ring.  Majorly.  Christmas?

Sweetest shower.

I can't get over this awesome pink elephant shower from Bump Smitten.  InCROYable!

One can never have too much pink?  Or maybe that's just me.  :)


Bows.  They finally stay in her hair! Her sweet little stick-up-all-over bird hair.  So excited. :)

Oh, and...peek-a-boo!

Pink cardi.

Finally...I've been waiting for J.Crew (anyone!) to come out with a bright pink cardi this year.  And here it is.  A fun cardigan can make any outfit cuter.
