After Christmas Gifts for Moi!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I had a great time visiting family in New Jersey. The trip was cut short due to the blizzard (we wanted to make sure that we could make it home before the snow came), but it was still so fun. I received some lovely, thoughtful gifts, but I want to share with you one of my favorites...My very own breakfast sandwich maker! I've wanted one for awhile as I am a sucker for small kitschy appliances. And yes, it is a toaster, egg poacher, and meat warmer all in one.

On another note, there are are so many good sales this time of year that I'm contemplating buying myself some after-Christmas gifts...

I think I might need these beautiful Nine West boots. LOVE the bow on the back. Thanks to
Chic 'n Cheap Living for the heads up.

Jolt Pick Me Up jeggings that were featured on College Prep. And the price is right!

This JPK Paris 75 Bucket Bag from North River Outfitters. I love the NRO store and still count my lucky stars that I live within walking distance to a store that sells Lilly. I've had my eye on this bag for months - either in navy or pink!

What's on your after Christmas list??

Holiday Cards!

It is a rare occasion that my fiance and I manage to take a good picture together. In the event we do, it is a cause for celebration. OK, maybe that's a little dramatic, but there are just SO many pictures of us where my fiance is looking in the wrong direction, has his mouth wide open because he is mid-sentence, etc. And I'm not too photogenic myself. My blink reflex is lightning-quick and it is a common joke among friends and family that multiple takes of every picture are necessary as my eyes are usually closed - or worse, one closed and one open :\. Anyway, we actually got a good one last weekend AND it was Christmas themed. This just screams holiday card material to me.

Now where can one can festive holiday photo cards? Shutterfly, of course! They have a delightful selection of Christmas photo cards to choose from. Here are some of my picks:

I especially love the monogram on the last one! And who knows, if our good photo taking luck continues, I might be able to make a photo desk calendar . Actually, I'm thinking that might be a nice gift for my girlfriends. How fun would that be?!

What kind of holiday cards do you send out?
