Today’s fun highlights:

  • Yes, it’s still winter here….in case you were confused by this morning post (here).
  • But I’ve got my love giant puffer coat from J.Crew (here) to keep me warm!
  • Seriously, buy this thing if you’re looking for a warm winter coat. Best features: fleece-lined pockets, thumb holes for sleeves (to keep ALL the cold out), removable hood, tie belt, and it comes in navy blue. Serious score.
  • It’s finally happening…I’m getting back into volunteering! I was a hardcore volunteer all through high school and college and the first part of my post-grad years, but then I got away from it for a combination of reasons. But as of today, I’m back at it! I’ll be at a local food pantry, and I can’t wait to help out those in need.
  • This weekend we don’t have any real plans…but you better believe I’ll be watching the Super Bowl, judging commercials, eating all kinds of dip, and most importantly, rooting against those Patriots (you could say that the Falcons are my new favorite team)!
  • Who are you pulling for? Patriots? Falcons? Or Lady Gaga halftime show!? ;) Let me know in the comments!

So many good puns for this coat….so little time.

You come for the clothes, stay for the dad jokes…am I right? ;)

p.s. Raise your hand if you think I look like a mature, grown-up Spinelli from Recess…yes, the cartoon character from the cartoon show that ran in the late-90s. Okay, so everyone…excellent! That’s basically all I could think about as I edited these photos. I’m the coolest.

Today’s fun highlights:

  • It’s finally Friday! This was the first week in a long time that I’ve actually worked 5 whole workdays (woe is me), and boy let me tell you, it felt like it!
  • We finally saw La La Land this week, which I had apparently hyped up in my head to be the greatest movie ever. And let me tell you, I liked it…a lot, but it wasn’t the best movie in the history of time (that’s Princess Bride for those of you keeping track at home). Emma Stone is flawless though, the music is great and catchy,…and 2 hours of Ryan Gosling never hurt anyone. ;)
  • Tonight we’re going out for burgers and drinks with my best friend and her husband to celebrate his birthday, and then this weekend we’re staying in and catching up on some TV (2 solid days of football games, y’all) and chores. It’s one of our last free weekends for a while…and it’s suppose to be fairly cold….so my couch plus my puppy sounds pretty great!

I was thinking the other day how great of a title “Checkmate” would be for a post that featured my new favorite coat, so here we are.

But then I also got to thinking about how hilarious it was that a game like chess (known as the thinking man’s game) had a battle cry of “Checkmate,” which for those of you who aren’t familiar with the game means that your opponent has no other moves to save their king (which ends the game).

No other game that I can think of has anything like this. It’s basically like someone shooting the final basket of a basketball game and yelling “Booyah.” Or a soccer player scoring a goal and saying “Na-na-na-na-boo-boo.”

So much for a noble game.

Just some food for thought for your Monday before Christmas break. Checkmate, y’all.

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. Can we just talk about this plaid dress…and how pretty it is…and how it comes in patterns of my favorite colors…and how it is only $40?
  2. Blogger love of the week: I told her on Instagram, and I’m telling you here…Madison looks like she walked out of a Boden catalog, in the best way possible!
  3. My favorite cashmere sweater from last year is BACK (in 18 different colors)…so yes, I ordered another one (this time in tan)! 
  4. 73 questions with Emma Stone was hilarious (here if you missed it)! “Spirit animal?” No pause. “Dragon.” Love her!
  5. Apparently this week is all about my favorite items from last year, because, my much worn and much loved camel/tan coat from J.Crew Factory is also back! Get it before it sells out! And do I need the green one?!
  6. Three words: houndstooth print vest. Yes, please!
  7. In case you haven’t been preparing for Halloween, here are 20 last minute Halloween costumes for the upcoming holiday! I can’t wait (my friend B throws a big party every year)…and will share my costume when I can!
  8. These might be the BEST ankle boots I’ve seen all season. They come in three different colors (black, tan, and burgundy) and are under $60! Ordering….right…now!
  9. Did you guys here the news? Victoria Beckham is coming to a Target near you come April 2017! I’m kind of intrigued to see her looks! Anyone else?
  10. Can’t get enough of the block heel trend, and these beauties from Ann Taylor are my current favorites!
