three things on a (january 3rd) thursday

today IS thursday, right? i am so befuddled with the days of the week, thanks to the hols.

number one thing:

i saw this tea box yesterday at vincenzo’s. i did not buy it. i should have, though:

fact: you can never have too many cardinals in the home.

 number two thing:

joanne and i had a fabulous visit, as always:

number three thing:

i am now the highly embarrassed proud owner of a puffy coat:

it is impossible to take a *great* pic while wearing a puffy coat.

i had surprisingly wonderful luck at mark’s work wearhouse yesterday [fellow canadians, i know that the store is now called "marks," but this retail establishment will be engrained in my head as "mark's work wearhouse," forever and ever].

this coat fit all my requirements: it’s warm (downfilled), hooded (and this one zips off), w.a.r.m. (WARM!!), black (the only colour i would consider), warm (i hate being cold), and was reasonably priced. then – bonus!!! i got to the cash register and the jacket was 50% off, something i did not know prior to paying! that cardinal sighting at vincenzo’s had something to do with my luck, i just know it!…

:D

wishing YOU a lucky thursday!

    The cardinal box is so pretty! I tend to shy away from the puffy coats, but if I lived in a[n] even colder climate…I’d probably consider one!

    Puffy coats are just necessary sometimes!!! I ditched mine when I moved to california, but right now I’m in transit back to NY for a week… and I think my first stop will be my mom’s coat closet to see if I can scrounge up something puffy and warm!

    What?!? It’s only called Marks now?!? That’s just…wrong. I will join you in calling it Mark’s Work Wearhouse forever and ever. They have the best comfy work shoes there.

    And I LOVE my puffy coat!

    Horray for puffycoats! Sorry to be mia for 10 days (I didn’t blog either!) but I’m back. Happy New Year Cath!

    I keep thinking it’s Friday..then the disappointment sets in, ha!
    You are making me warm just by looking at you! love the coat :D

    Ok..I never knew Marks work wearhouse changed its name. It’s still MWW to me!!

    Great post, Cathy! Only thing missing (for me) with the puffy coat is that it should cover my butt! I like to keep my little (HA!!) bottom warm! Have a great day!! You sort of look like Randy in The Christmas Story!!
