Pottery Barn Holiday Catalog
Arrived today and I am loving these ribbon ornaments... never enough ribbons in my decorating!

Celebrity Detox: The Fame Game
Think what you may of Rosie, but I find her to be refreshing in our twisted world of faux-celebu-perfection.

Private Practice
How much do I love that Shonda Rimes created Pete's character to exist in a place so far beyond what his pretty boy looks might predict? And how cute is Dell's crush on Naomi? I still miss her on Grey's.

Traveling to:
New York City
Heading "home" in 3 weeks - first time since the big move. Lots of friends and family to see, and even more pizza and bagels to dive into. I've missed my New York!

Hey there, The Gap

I see you there, checking out my key fobs. Sure, it could be some super cool girl spending 2 minutes looking for a cute way to keep track of her keys. [If if is... Hi!] But I wouldn't be surprised if I stop in The Gap one day and see similar key chains for sale.

Luckily, you bought one before everyone else did -- you trend setter, you!

San Diego: Part Deux

Sailboats along Harbor Drive.

In truth, I never *want* to leave San Diego. Despite my kicking and screaming (which made for an interesting trip through airport security), we made it back to Dallas last night. I'll post more photos ASAP, since none of my little helper elves bothered to come and magically work on my orders while I was gone!

Happy Birthday Eric!

Though it's not something that I talk about often (if at all) here in Cupcakeland, I was adopted when I was a baby. The short version of the story is that it turned out that I had a biological brother (almost a year older than me) who was adopted by another family and grew up several hours away from me. Even though we spent 24 years growing up in very different environments, we found out that we are oddly alike in a very innate, biological way that I partly attribute to being born within a week of each other and thus, both Libras.

Why all this info? Today happens to be his birthday, and since we can't be together this year to celebrate together I sent over an ice cream cake (technically, a picture of mine from last week). I figured with such a crappy (but thoughtful!!!) gift, I could at least throw him a little blog posting. Cheers to a wonderful year, my friend!

I loves me some big brother!

Good reads?

I'm heading back to San Diego for the better part of next week and want to pack my bag full of books since I have absolutely no intentions of doing even a shred of work while I'm there. I already have a copy of Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Luster, thanks to Alyssa's recommendation. Kitchen Confidential is also waiting for me at the library. Any must-read recommendations from my dear readers? New releases and all time favorites, biographies and fiction, trashy and educational- all are welcome.

Diamonds are a girl's best friend

French headbands in our Brown Diamond pattern - $10-$15

This month we're also introducing a brand new pattern to our line of French Damask Headbands. The Diamond collection come in 3 color combinations: Blue & Pink, Brown & Blue and Green & Pink (of course). Additionally, we've added a blue pattern to our Paisley collection. All of our French collection patterns come in our 3 sizes: Small, Medium & Large (Small not available in Scroll collection). Be sure to check them out!

Child Size Headbands

Preppy headbands in our Nantucket print - $8.50-$12.50

We've carried smaller headbands at our shows the past few months and since they've been a big hit with our customers, we are bringing them to our website's permanent collection too. In the past, young girls would wear our medium size and the tips would fall past their ears and irritate the whole area. Just as great as our standard comfort inserts, the newer size is about an inch shorter all around, making them perfect for toddlers and smaller children. You can find them in our newly redesigned Headband Page in the Preppy, French and Velvet styles.
