Seriously... how ADORABLE are these?! They had them in black pumps too. I couldn't resist... taking the photo.

I went to the Camarillo outlets on Saturday morning with Ms. K. We headed up bright and early, with the sun shining and the wind blowing. After QUITE a short amount of time considering this outlet WAS equipped with a Le Creuset store... I left with this "first.".
Most outlets sell "seconds" due to imperfections in sized, shape, colors, stitching and so forth.
I "picked this up" (a phrase my brother-in-law often throws around in such a manner as "I picked up a gallon of milk" but usually means "picking up a set of $500 speakers" for under a buck fifty (no, I don't mean $1.50). It was 40% off as a first, because they were discontinuing the color! This color is Valecia. She is a 5 1/2 QT. Round French Oven weighing in at a 2-year-old.
I was really wanting to walk away with something Dijon (see below)
|Baptized and used. All is right with the world.|
Her/His name? To be determined. Stay tuned! :)

Its that time of year when the bills from all the Christmas-y goodness start arriving in the dreaded mailbox, and you are getting stares from your neighbors cause the lights are still hanging outside...
I have spent the last few mornings de-Christmasing the homestead. I hate it. I am usually filled with such holiday cheer when I look at this cute little mouse candle melt (Yankee Candle doesn't usually sell cute candle melts outside of Christmas themes) so I must carefully pack it away until next year. Don't worry mama mouse, just 11 more months!
I'm about 5 boxes done. Once my Xmas bear hand towels are done drying, they too will be packed away and the rest of the boxes can be tape sealed and brought back into storage. Bah humbug.
My husband is in a trade where he needs to be at the job site ready to go at 6 am. That means, arrived, parked and tools in hand on his designated floor.
Naturally, I'm still in quite a dream state when he leaves...
I got this text from him this morning. Not a bad way to start the day.

I made this guy post Christmas and gave it to a close friend... I want to make more. I think she's soooo cute! But I've kinda put a halt to my factory paced plastic canvas production for right now. Maybe come February I'll start the assembly line back up.

Aren't these guys so adorable? I found them at Fresh and Easy on my lunch break. I didn't come home with them since I'm kinda already cramped for space but think they will make a lovely cozy mountain cabin feel to any kitchen :)

|Another Piece of My Heart, by Jane Green|
|I've Got Your Number, by Sophie Kinsella|
|Where We Belong, by Emily Giffin|
I've had this book for over 6 weeks, cause i was on a pretty big craft streak where my waking hours would be filled with yarn, needles and plastic canvas.

So I rented Your Highness, which stars my gal Natalie Portman. I like that girl. Nice bum too! And James Franco. This actor, is an enigma to me, cause he does blockbusters like Spiderman... and then does some guest stars on General Hospital. But he was funny in this movie :)
The husband had no interest in watching this movie, so I went solo a few mornings ago before work. I captured this photo from the screen and got super excited, cause its I've BEEN there!

I loved my office this year, decked out in my usual fashion! IT made the work day so friendly and full of the holiday spirit! I got many compliments on the decor. Made coming to work a holly jolly time of the year!
I'll probably have to start taking down the decorations... unlike those that will probably stay up through my birthday at home!
