My new love

Sunday, December 20, 2009

Well let me just say this morning I woke up to this...LOTS and LOTS of snow! I am pretty sure it marked the first OFFICIAL snow storm of the season. We definitely got over one foot of snow! Yes, that would be mi padre snowblowing the driveway in the bottom right hand corner!

Last night I went to the Natick Collection to do some ALL of my Christmas shopping with Claire. Okay so I know I mention her like everyday so I think I should let you all know that she has been my best friend since third grade and we pretty much hang out all the time, as if you couldn't already guess ;) She goes to American University so we only get to see each other when we are both home. So we hang out as much as possible! So if you are a new reader and are wondering who the heck I am talking about, I am talking about my bff!

Here is a pic of her, she is such a sweetheart and I love her. I hope she doesn't mind being on the blog, but I don't think she will ;)Here is the beautiful Christmas tree they have at the mall. The Natick Collection is a very very nice mall and if you live in the area or have not been yet I definitely recommend going there!

The trip to the mall was not bad at all and luckily we hit NO traffic! The mall was kind of crowded but that was to be expected considering it was the last Saturday before Christmas and the busiest shopping day of the year.

I must say the trip to the mall last night was a HUGE success. I got my mom a new Movado watch, my dad a brown Northface jacket, my sister perfume from Gilly Hicks, and my lil sister a shirt from Hollister and a maltese dog calender!

But I clearly did not buy gifts for everyone else, I had to treat myself to an early Christmas gift ;) I remembered yesterday I told you all how my bowls are just blah, so I knew what I wanted...a nice new beautiful bowl! I wanted to pop into Anthropologie just to look around and I came out with a lovely new bowl and a new favorite store!! We also ran into another one of our friends from high school, Jen! It was nice to see her :)

So I must say I have a new love to Anthropologie and I kind of want EVERYTHING in that store! I have made up my mind when I am older my whole appartment is going to be filled with beautiful stuff from there :) Can't wait!So here is my new bowl...I kid, I kid.

But no really, here it is! Isn't she a beauty?! It is called the In-The-Studio Bowl, a handcrafted of colorful earthenware, this vessel is playfully stamped with dashes and posies.

For breakfast this morning I knew I just had to use my new bowl, so a yogurt mess it was. I had Brown Cow Vanilla, Barbara's Original Puffins, another overriped banana, and a dollop of Teddie's smooth peanut butter with milk on the side.A lovely yogurt mess all mixed together after I ate a few bites :O

I think I am pretty much snowed in for the rest of the day. But nothing is better than snow, relaxing, Patriots, and Christmas tea!

How are you spending your Sunday?!

HAHA! Um yes I do and I believe when you mix peanut butter (brown) in with vanilla yogurt (white) you will get something that looks quite different. In fact I just had some last night for a snack before I saw this.

Just to clarify, I see the peanut butter PRIOR to mixing. I actually don't care. I'm done reading your blog anyway (as I see many others are). Good luck.

Jenna said...

i must not be using as much peanut butter as you are! but i can assure you there is pb mixed in there...believe it or not!
do you think i should add more? because i am still currently only using one tablespoon. how much do you use?

Do you friends and family know about or read your blog? I can't even imagine telling my friends; they would think I'm narcissistic and nuts. My mom looks around sometimes, but I'm hoping yours doesn't since you just announced what her Christmas present is!
