the {winter} has got me love sprung

Wow. How did it already get to be Wednesday… anybody else feel that way?
Walking through the city this past weekend and seeing all the lights and decorations going up had me thinking how I usually ignore that the holidays are fast approaching until after my Birthday but I must say this year I’m kind of excited about them.

Here are a few of my favorite things about the Holidays
{even if it is a little early}

~ Black Friday ~ shopping the day after Thanksgiving is great and the perfect reason for me to actually be up and dressed at that kind of hour {unless of course it’s because I’m still out and wearing last night’s clothes} also what better excuse to kick off Christmas Shopping and be honest, buy a little something for yourself ~
~ Starbucks Peppermint Mocha {with soy} my favorite winter treat ~
~ The Annual Girls Holiday Dinner & our Secret Santa gift exchange ~
{this year we used elfstar.com ~ so fun, check it out here!}
~ all the new fun makeup out at Sephora ~
~ having an excuse to wear those same boots and warm knits over and over ~
~ Warm Weather Island Trips to get away from the cold ~
~ walking up and down 5th Ave to see all the lights ~
~ Bergdorf Christmas Windows ~
~ a reason to drink hot toddies and Irish Coffee ~

A few things I’m not looking forward to

~ Christmas music ~
{sorry not a fan, never have been and I doubt ever will be}
~ EggNog ~
~ getting so cold outside, my entire being freezes over in 10 seconds ~ 
 {that’s how it feels to me}

Past GHD 2007 ~ 2008 ~ 2009

Three of Cups, NYC

Room 18, NYC

Havana-NY, NYC
and lastly a few things making me so happy right now

~ Rihanna –Who’s That Chick ~
~ HIMYM – I could seriously watch that show all day long, everyday ~
~ Long Island Ice Teas ~
{I know, so random but they have the best ones at this sushi spot. They go down easy and “get the job done”}
~ Brunch every weekend ~
~ The Young Ones ~ so random, so 80’s, a little crude/off-kilter but so hysterical, check it out here

What's making you happy this week?

I'll take your eggnog and christmas music and raise you my empty wallet on Black Friday ;)

I'm not ready for snow. We have too many hills and I'm a poor driver.
