weekend update

Middle and K are on their way home from a trip to Minnesota. It was cold.
We've got a few inches of snow, I am happy to report. I was hoping for snow.
I ran out this morning and got some fresh bread and a couple of wedges of cheese for our late dinner.
I also bought some cranberry, hazelnut raisin bread...

breakfast

and since my sweetheart wasn't here to bring me coffee in bed, I had some for breakfast.

In other news: I had fun doing a post for the office blog on boots.

Those belong to my friend C. She was one of seven women in boots I caught that day. In truth, there were probably 40 women in boots that day but I had work to do!

Fashion dilemma of the week? Leggings. I've got four pairs of leggings that I wear as footless tights in cold weather and three of them have holes. Why are leggings so hard to find? Too tight, too short, too long, too thin - I've tried them all. Then, I got an email from StyleMint with a sweet deal: order a tee shirt (I'd been meaning to, they look great) and get a pair of leggings for free. They've just arrived and not only is the tee shirt terrific but the leggings are exactly what I was looking for. Whew.

My wristworms have all arrived too.

Did I mention that I was given three pairs of the very same ones? All grey. Two went back for exchange and now I have all my favorite colors: black, grey and brown. I could not be happier.
(Relative to arm products.)

Cautionary tale of the week: I ordered a pair of heels and a turtleneck from the new Zara online store, spending a total of $30 (free shipping). Turtleneck (I hope to dispose of two old turtlenecks) report: completely transparent. Shoe report: you get what you pay for. Free shipping for returns too.
Things look so good on the Zara site. Sigh.

You have lovely long fingers -- perfect for the Wrist Worms.

K and Middle would have been welcome to take this cold weather back with them; I am sick of it.

The Etsy link has a typo, but even when I fixed it, it didn't work -- I love that photo.

ZARA is very cheap ...
You didn't mention Middle was going along with K to MN. A boys work trip, nice.
Speaking of leggings and boots, I am quite fed up as every woman between 2 and 99 are wearing them here.
Some of them should be killed with a tray (TM Kim) stat.
Let the coffee in bed resume now (cozying up next to your boyfriend of course).
