Ginge-y Friday!

Friday! Whoop! Whoop! This week has been rewarding and hard all at once. Luckily the rewarding came at the end.

Olivia learned the word "nnnnno" which has been a real treat, let me tell ya. We got our first major snow. We made Christmas cookies. We wrapped gifts. I mean - not bad by any stretch?

Here, here to the last two sleeps before the big man in red makes an appearance. Now if you'll excuse me, we have some reindeer food to make. xo

...and the links:
- I am thrilled to see Ann Curry's #26Acts social movement take off. This is what social media is for. And, it's pretty gratifying to participate, too.

- Starbucks is taking to wine, now? How do you feel about that?

- Betsey gets a reality show.

- Zara sale starts today. You were warned.

- Andy Warhol does Christmas. I love.

- ...and if you want to watch my favorite scene in the Nutcracker, click here.

  10. Hope your family (especially the girls!) had a great Christmas! Can't wait to see pics!

    Also, good for Betsey Johnson. I worked for her during the early 00's, and she seems like such a nice person. I always wondered how they made profit when there would be slooooooow, SLOOOOOOOW days, and wondered who would pay $300 for a fun dress when Forever 21 was a few steps away? Not to mention that her clothes weren't made for women with hips... although, there were some dudes that worked at the Tony and Guy that could totally pull them off! :P
