'Tis the Season... Beaujolais Nouveau

Nothing kicks off the holiday season like the arrival of Beaujolais Nouveau. I seriously love this wine and think there is something so special about seeing it on the shelf... because it means Christmas is right around the corner (and it is super delicious)!

One of these years, I'll be in France celebrating the arrival... just you wait and see!

Rub A Dub Dub... Thomas Paul

Thomas Paul really knows how to make a bathroom into something special, don't you think?

Makes me want to fill up the tub right now!

The Perfect Place... Setting

I'm not one to get goo-goo ga-ga over china... that is unless it is Hermes.

How gorgeous is this photo? I would almost be afraid to put food on such beauty. Honestly, I'd probably hang it on my wall... or arrange my food around the perimeter.

Then again, I also wore my Underoos over my clothes so that people could see how awesome they were, so I guess take my china views with a grain of salt!

Tartans, Tints, and Tidings...

My love for MAC makeup knows no bounds recently.

I'm completely in love with the colors and packaging of the Tartan Tale line that those cosmetic geniuses have put out for the holidays.

Pretty perfect for the upcoming Tartans & Tidings Ball, don't you think? I know the event is going to be fantastic, especially after the fun we had at Oxfords & Oysters... and tickets are still available.

Plus the event is raising money for an amazing charity, SquashWise, that involves one of my favorite sports and bringing this game to children who otherwise wouldn't have the chance to play.

Hope to see you there!

I'm Back...

Well hello, there!

It feels like I've been gone for so much longer than a week. We had an amazing time in Ireland, and I have so much to share with you guys now that I'm back!

Looking forward to lots of exciting new posts in the coming days.

And thank you all for the sweet notes regarding my engagement - we are so touched!

Thrilled... delighted... glowing... ecstatic... in love... blessed... and all around giddy would be just a few ways I would describe my state of mind since Saturday evening, when Bryan proposed.

I can't wait to share more with you, but for now here is a photo of me taken with Bryan's Blackberry (we couldn't find our camera battery, and only had a disposable we bought at CVS!) after our dinner that followed the perfect and heartfelt proposal.

And I know I've been a total absentee blogger lately... but I look forward to changing that once we get back from Ireland!

Election Day...

Election Day has made me a busy bee... and work has been crazy leading up to tomorrow's vote. Looking forward to getting back to blogging soon!

In the meantime, hope you make it out to vote!
