  It's been a busy last couple of days. Yesterday Jeremiah and I threw a party for some of our college friends -- it was a great time full of chocolate goodies, peppermint schnapps, A Christmas Story and Mean Girls. I meant to take some pictures of the festivities, but it was pretty busy the whole time and I just forgot! At one point the fire alarm went off because I left the nachos in the oven for too long. They were a little burned but still delicious. Susie, Cleveland, Rachel, Vargas, Amanda and Ashley -- thanks for coming!
Today I got some last-minute shopping done. It was freezing and I just threw on about five layers. I love this scarf that Jeremiah picked out for me when he went on a family trip to Mexico a couple years ago. For the longest time I had no idea how to style it because it is so vibrant and it would often end up being a blanket for Sprinkle. But lately I've been experimenting with some of the brighter parts of my closet and I'm trying not to shy away from being bold. Do you ever have a problem styling super-bright colors, and how do you deal with it?
This much orange reminds me of some children's book about colors and rhymes. Of course nothing rhymes with orange so the book authors had to make something up like, "Mr. Orange loves to dance the torange." I think it should be the next dance craze, like the Macarena or Soulja Boy.
Have a great week!

P.S. Nik should be back to posting in the next couple of days -- hooray!
P.P.S. Thank you to Indiana of Adored Austin for featuring me in the "Red, White and Blue" outfit contest. It was a fun idea and it was great to see what everyone else came up with!


  1. You look very pretty in Bright color! (also refering to your last post blue dress!) Yep, I think the holiday is keeping everybody busy, but it such fun time!
