Happy New Year

Seeing as everything is sparklie this year, I have decided to step away from my comfort zone...these J.Crew sequin tees sucked me in. If anyone sees me sporting an exposed zipper in 2011 please stage an intervention.

Have a shiny New Years Eve! xx

Christmas Day Highlights

Christmas morning we packed it up and headed to my aunt and uncle's farm.


Sam patiently awaited a Gator ride. Sam is often compared to "Ferdinand the Bull" he prefers to sit and smell the flowers while the other lab named Maggie is out hunting.

There were a few snow flurries but the cold weather didn't stop us from charging through the fields.

After we played with the dogs and ate my uncle's eggs benedict we headed home for gifts.


The last stop was JCW's parents house for dinner.

Special thanks to my aunt and uncle for a delicious breakfast and for always gassing up the Gator when they know we are coming! xx

Holiday Loot

Hermes Bangle...I am fully aware it's not good to substitute one addition for another.

Cashmere Cardigan, J.Crew

Tartan: Romancing the Plaid

Hoof Pick Belt, Austin Jeffers

Astronaut Ice Cream was in my stocking...looks like my mom reads my blog.

Dixie's parents gave me a subscription to Coastal Living Magazine.

A new Murfee Scarf from Aunt S.

An addition to my "Old Maryland" engraved silver pattern from Aunt S.

New York Parties: Private obsession with Jamee Gregory continues.

Sony Cyber-Shot W350, Best Buy
I have owned a couple Sonys but I am considering a Coolpix...I just love the Ashton Kutcher commercials! Anyone have any recommendations for a good point and shoot?

Plaid Stick Umbrella, Lands End

For being on the naughty list JCW managed to make out pretty well this year...

Ribbion Belt, Leather Man

Essentials of Roasting, William Sonoma

Liddesdale Jacket, Barbour
After opening this jacket JCW proceeded to tell me he thinks he is between sizes...this is a go-to statement for your typical serial returner.

Bowtie, Southern Proper

Syncro Squash Raquet, Harrow

Some junk food is completely acceptable after all of that squash.

Knife, Wuesthof Ikon Blackwood Series

A gift certificate for a custom shirt from Alton Lane. The showroom has a 3D Body scanner that records your exact measurements and is located in NYC...which means we have the perfect excuse for a trip!

Replacement Grips, Harrow
That boy changes his grips like he changes his socks.

Special thanks for all of the wonderful gifts we received this year...we are so very blessed. xx
