To Freeze or Not to Freeze

As mentioned before, I'm in Atlanta. It's cold here. I didn't bring a coat. Or a scarf. Or gloves. It was in the 50s when I left Raleigh this weekend. Good old Jack Frost has come to visit and caught me off guard.

I really thought about packing a coat, but I couldn't fit anything else in my luggage. I mean, a girl has to have at least three outfits for each day on the road. One dressy outfit, one middle-of-the-road kinda dressy outfit for those mornings you wake up and don't feel like dressing up but you still have to look like you made the effort, and the evening outfit (jeans, cool shirt, etc.). There was no room for a coat.

So here's my dilemma. Do I suffer through the rest of the day and tomorrow in the freezing cold, or is it a great excuse to catch a cab to the nearest mall and buy a coat? You tell me.

Oh, and I've got a Macy's coupon for 11% off one item. I could pick this cute little coat up for $129.00, regular price is $220.00...hummmm.....


  1. If it were me, I would head to the mall and buy a coat AND gloves. haha. But, I'm a shopaholic!

  2. Head to the mall girl :) And enjoy some awesome ATL shopping :) I wish I could meet up with you and shop too :)

  3. I say go for it and treat yourself to that darling coat!

  4. BUY IT!! You so have a great excuse :) And the coat is so pretty!

  5. Umm I think I would head to the mall! I don't like being cold and that coat is way too adorable to pass up, especially at that price!

  6. go buy the coat! don't freeze and look cute!

  7. Hurry! Get to the mall and buy yourself the cutest coat in Atlanta!!! :)

  8. I forgot to pack my coat when I went to NYC and was so sad! I say use your coupon and go for it!

  9. I don't know if I'm too late on this one, but you definetely need to go buy that coat and some of those red gloves too.

  10. Wait, wait, wait... you're a Raleigh girl, too??? KNEW I loved reading your blog possibly a bit more than the others :-)

    As for the point of the post... ummm yeah, that coat... too cute. Get it. No one likes to be cold, right?

  11. I vote for the mall The coat is great- love the gloves and bag as well! Splurge and treat yourself!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
