New Year's Day here in these parts was a bit dreary w/ a constant drizzle. I had plans to run, but eh -- undecorated the house instead. Had plans to take outdoor outfit pictures, but eh -- but plan B instead. And although as you can see, I didn't quite figure out proper lighting and blah blah blah, you now get to see (it it's fullness) my new chalkboard wall. It's right outside our kitchen and so much fun. D did it all himself. It's magnetic and awesome. Plans for some framed pictures above the wainscoting and the outside of the board still needs to be trimmed. But yea, pretty thrillllllled about it.
I'm also really thrilled about my new bag. It arrived the day before we headed out to celebrate Christmas with the family. Woohoo Merry Christmas bag to me! I love it. Don't let the size of this bag deceive you. It is like Mary Poppin's bag - I could fit a coat rack in this thing, but yet, still not loose my keys in it. It even has a zippered expandable bottom if you realllly need to throw some extra stuff in. The best. Love the gold hardware on the black leather. Love the short & long handle You'll be seeing more of it I'm sure!
Also -- on the subject of bags, its been a while since I've done one (or seen one), would anyone be interested in doing a "Whats in my Bag" link up? Last time I did one was way before I had a kiddo and the "usual contents" of my bag have changed quite a bit! Let me know if a link up sounds fun to you.
