Oh my goodness… I’m soooo cold and loving it! This week I’m working in Arizona. I started the week in Phoenix and I’m ending the week in Prescott. Prior to packing for a business trip, I always check the weather online. I checked the weather in Phoenix and figured it would be the same in Prescott since the two cities are only an hour and a half apart. I was wrong! The lows in Phoenix were in the 50’s. In Prescott the lows are in the 20’s and 30’s. Although I didn’t bring any clothes for the cold weather, I’m excited!!

About seven years ago I started buying myself a birthday present and a birthday dress. Why not, right??? This year (October), my birthday present to myself was this jacket. I haven’t had much of a chance to wear it. I wish I would’ve packed it. :(

This was my birthday dress. It is much cuter on than on the hanger. It reminds me of something Blair on GG would wear.

Dude, that dress is soooo Blair!! Before I even saw that you wrote that I thought it. Have I ever told you that I have a MAJOR crush on Chuck Bass...the Basshole....the Motherchucker? Seriously, I know he's a slime ball but I love him...his pensive stare and puckered lips!!!

Beautiful choice on the dress and coat. We've always loved shopping haven't we?!
Love, Mom

Great looking jacket. Arizona is always a surprise, even at night it gets pretty cool in Phoenix. I love it when my parents tell me they had to turn on the heat since the temp was only 71 in January.

CUTE dress. I think it's cute on the hanger so I can only imagine how cute it is when you have it on.

I want to come hang out in TX and go shopping with you. Ok, and bake cookies. But then we'd give them away so we didn't eat all of them. ;)

OK..My comment has nothing to do with your fabulous,coat and dress that I am drooling over ! But, I would love to know more about your trip to China. We are in the middle of paperwork adopting from China a special needs child. I am so impressed with the foster home...would love to hear more.

Good mornin' Jill~

I've been thinking about you and hope you're doing well. I'm a bit bummed that I missed out on your awesome giveaway but I probably wouldn't have won, anyway.

I love the birthday goodies you gave yourself. You have such beautiful taste and style. You know that but I can tell you are humble and modest about it, too.

Also, saw your thoughtful gesture for Lori. I know that had to boost her spirits beyond words. On this journey, a little encouragement goes a long way, so I'm sure that gift put miles of encouragement in her emotional bank account.

Hope you're having a great week and will be home safely soon...

xoxo,
Lisa
