Things I’m Loving – 11.05.08

  • The election is over.  We can all be friends, hold hands and skip through fields of daisies once again.
  • Gingersnap Lattes from Starbucks.  Heavenly.  TRUST ME ON THIS. Why they don’t just call it the Gingerbread Latte like every other winter is beyond me, but they pretty much taste the same.
  • Getting the okay from my doctor to spend this Saturday shopping at Union Square in San Francisco.  Two fingers in my hoo-ha at yesterday’s appointment showed I’m not the least bit dilated, so all that walking can’t hurt, right?
  • Blonde bobs.  I knowwww, I’ve been there, done that… but Lordy, they’re sassy and adorable and I just might be wanting one again.
For the record, I really, really don't like Hayden Panettiere and searched for an unflattering picture of her with this hairstyle for a good 30 minutes... only to find that IT DOESN'T EXIST. I think I dislike her even more now.
  • Christmas decorating.  I’m not going to lie, I’m taking a day off next week to put the finishing touches on the nursery, clean house, and put up my Christmas tree.  A little early?  Probably. Any shame over here? Nope.
  • Personalized baby goodies from Shea.
I may or may not have used them to wipe my own drool. So cute.
  • A bouquet of roses and a sweet note from Justin.  There’s just nothing better.

Wow, I actually didn’t put anything edible on this list.  If you follow me on Twitter, you know that is so unlike me.  Wait, do lattes count?  Nah.

What would you put on your love list right now?

8 Things I’m Loving – 08.08.08

  • My new Bandolino zebra flats. I found them on sale on Gottschalks (which I will continue to say, is the absolute BEST place to find great deals on shoes), and am currently obsessing over how comfortable AND cute they are. Usually, flats make me feel dumpy and slightly less than fabulous, but these little gems are amazing.

  • Glamour Tweezers. Need I say more?
  • This great article (shared in my Google Reader by the hilarious Alyssa) on How to Write a Recipe Like a Professional. I can thank my current obsession with becoming The Ultimate Domestic Goddess for wanting to know silly little things like this!
  • Hurrah for frugal living! You have to check out these awesome home decorating finds over at Domino. See these vases? Yeah, $0.79.

  • Of course, this post wouldn’t be complete without including at least one cutesy/frilly/girlie item that little Maddie Gable needs (or I need. Whatever). I am going ga-ga (get it? Oh, I’m hilarious) over this crib bedding by Serena & Lily.

  • Now, try not to judge me for falling for a cheesy infomercial just yet… The Ped Egg really does work! As someone who is extremely judgmental aware of the importance of well-groomed feet, I wouldn’t lie to you. Yes, the shavings are — how do I put this lightly? — ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING AND GAG-INDUCING, but your tootsies are so smooth when you’re finished.

  • The Laughing Cow spreadable cheese wedges. Ohhh man, these babies are addictive. At only 35 calories each, I can’t lie and say I haven’t eaten three at one sitting. Not that the calories would stop me anyway, but I’m just saying — they’re THAT good.
  • And finally — Spontaneous Grammy-Mom-Me girl trips to San Francisco! Wheeee! Tomorrow will be a day full of non-stop gabbing, coffee breaks, shopping and fun with my most favorite ladies.
