my tuesday.

husband-to-be coming home from work and telling me how beautiful i am... down to my retro looking blue reeboks. and later... him eating every bit of the burnt cornbread and chili dinner i made (i blame it on our oven).




3 finds at Givens Books & Little Dickens + coffee.




finding a JCREW Clearence Shop. (they have wedding dresses too!) loving my new cozy slippers.




i thought LOST took the cake on this Tuesday, but nope. See the pretty bra above?

it's just one option i can go with, after winning $100 at Faire Frou Frou - ALL THANKS to the Gorgeous Liz of It's Unbeweavable blog's birthday giveaways! i COULDN'T believe my absolute luck! seriously, what a perfect gift for this newly engaged girl right? {they even have a bridal section.}

i told Max he could choose something. He was pretty thrilled about that.

though, bd (our secret nicknames for each other), if you're reading this, i told Liz i liked this one on my winning comment. {i'm that kind of lingerie girl}

THANK YOU soooo much Liz! i STILL can't believe i won!!!

thank-you x10000000 !!!!

Ahh this post made me smile :-) The slippers look wonderful!

LOVING that bra...wish I could get hold of something like that in the UK; it seems to be all cups, flowers and frills here - not ideal for petite frames!!!

Marian said...

Yay, congrats on the big win. Every girl should treat herself on lingere!!

Jen said...

I love your slippers! I have a similar pair from L.L. Bean, and I adore them. I got a new pair this Christmas because my old pair was so worn and grungy.

I congratulated you on Liz's spot, but I'll say it again here, congratulations lady! You deserve it, especially being newly engaged and all. :-)

When I saw you won yesterday I was beyond happy for you. In my opinion you won the best gift of all! That store has some pretty amazing things. Can't wait to see what you (and the fiance) pick out ;)
Hope your Wednesday is just as good darling <3

Love is when he will eat your burnt food. Awwww, so very sweet.

Don't worry in a few years you will be a pro and he will have requests. ;)

Marisa said...

xoxo

ps sorry i didn't text during Lost. In-Laws dropped in..(gotta love that) so I had to record and watch later...

I really like bright, flashy kicks, especially the retro-styled ones.

I am a little embarrassed to admit this, but I've still never been to the J. Crew store. I tried going when it was at the old location, but it was closed. I'm a bad local.

tinypaperheart said...

love your blue reeboks!

Ashlee said...

cornbread and chili is one of the ultimate winter-y comfort foods.

and those slippers look extra cozy.

p.s. i'm from fresno, california actually.

The Socialite said...

woooooo-weeee! I'm so excited for you! :)

Micaela said...

alison,

THANK YOU!!!! I was SOOOO EXCITED! :) I love your shop!!!


and girls, thank you for all your sweet comments. xo

Meg fee, "ooshing" - i like that word :)

gabby, VA VA VOOM!

catherine, i have pretty small boobs, so i like it when i can wear a top that others can't cos they're so small. So embrace that right? :)

Jen, THANK YOU for both sets of congrats :) isn't it the perfect win for an engaged girl? lol

summer, we MUST! esp. now that i'm closer to you in VA than i was in TX.

M, i was too worried to text you to see if you were watching, afraid i would say something and then something would have come up (like your in-laws) and then i would have said a spoiler or something lol I normally don't watch things live, just because i love to fast fwd thru the commercials but i just couldn't wait on the premier! how good was it? but your post today said it perfectly- LOST as ever but BRING IT! lol love you!

ricebabies, dear God i hope so! :) LOL
your comment made my heart warm.. the thought of having days on days with him to perfect it. Le Sigh.

Danielle, the JCREW is in a pretty part of town. my fiance grew up here but just recently moved back and he had never gone to this area before. I don't think it's embarrassing, cos i bet you know where all the cute and neat really local places are. :)

Ashlee, i have Texas on my mind :)
