Six for Sunday


I know Five for Friday is popular but it’s Sunday and I have time to write, so six for Sunday it is.

Six things that make me happy

1.  I have waited until today, November 24th to start listening to Christmas music.  That is HUGE for me, since I am usually an advocate of November 1st.  It started at H&M when I heard a new rendition of some Christmas tune and I once it started, I couldn’t stop.

2.Image My little chalkboard that I am changing up for the seasons.  I took down all my Thanksgiving decorations today and put Christmas ones up since there is only a month for them to be up now.

3. This cute saying.  Image And anything burlap.  Speaking of, I was at Hobby Lobby yesterday, waiting in the longgggggest of lines.  It was finally my turn and I realize I left my wallet at home, so I run out to my car, grab what cash I had and ended up being $3 short.  I felt my face turn red with embarrassment as I took something out of my bag to not buy when the lady behind me gave me the extra money.  She brushed it off as no big deal saying, “That would probably only buy me a soda anyway!” So now I am on a mission to pay it forward.  Thanks, kind lady!

4.Image Classy peacock plates.  I couldn’t justify getting them since I love serving on plates that showcase the food, not the plate.  

5.  Thanksgiving is this week.  The parade, the waking up to the smell of cooked turkey, the mashed potatoes, the card games, the family that gathers.  The best.

6.  This locally roasted coffee served at the Knoxville Farmers Market.ImageWhen people take the time to do things slower, for example, a pour over coffee, the results usually are amazing.  I have myself a little french press at home now which brings me to my next topic…

Six items on my Christmas list

1.ImageAn espresso maker with milk steamer attachment.  This little guy is at Target on sale for $29 and I might just have to go snatch it up.


2.Image Leopard umbrella from Target.  Any and all leopard! (And owls…and birds…)


Cozy infinity scarf from Target

4.Image A burberry scarf


This bag is pretty, I’ve seen it in person, but I’d rather spend $300 on a plane ticket. 

6. Image This pullover!  It has been discontinued and makes me so sad.  If anyone found it, it’d be a Christmas miracle 🙂


Also looking for the perfect green utility jacket and black riding boots. Both have proven hard to find.

If you can’t tell, the Target is less than half a mile from my house…


Update: I found a green jacket 🙂

I also found this lovelyA3ZY_BH6_hero
