i love today. it is the last saturday in the apartment i have lived in for 2 1/2 years.It is so strange. i am crocheting up a storm... my little sister needs a christmas present. i received my boots from GOJANE.COM and they are awesome!! the best boots i could have bought online after only seeing once! and for only 35$, so great. i have noticed a definite trend of me posting shoes, and i think i'm going to continue with this...

shoe loves of the day:

these boots are my absolute favorites. i have navy bluse and they now have the beat up dirty look that i love. absolutely perfect and comfortable. plus, they look great with any outfit.

hunter now makes socks for them! a fleece sock that lines the boo are the perfect addition. i got a grey pair of socks for my boots and my feet stay so warm!!


i think i would look insanely cool in these shoes...
deena & ozzy canvas heel. $48



brrr! my goal today is to keep warm. i am currently wrapped in my heating blanket with my crocheting sitting next to me with a big cup of cocoa. it is reading day, but i don't have any exams until thursday so i'm going to ignore studying until tomorrow. then i will be in the library alllll day with some of my classmates. i've added quite a few crocheted goodies to my etsy shop, and even sold a scard to someone in germany! i'm so excited, i've gone international! today i am working on my sister's christmas present, i hope she likes it.

i hope you have a great thanksgiving!



i am so excited! my birthday is in 3 days, and then thanksgivingggg. a great weekend that included the football game(we won...), two friends came to visit and derek came right up the mountain to spend the night! we went to an amazing show at the saloon and had delicious breakfast. i think this was an excellent way to spend one of my last weekends in this town that i have lived in for almost 4 years.

i hope you had a great weekend!!



oh man!!! it is almost thanksgiving and that happens to be my favorite holiday... because my birthday is the day before it! i will be turning 23 this year. birthdays are also my favorite day of the year and i get so excited for them and will try to celebrate as long as possible. my birthday list included oxfords, a fish-eye camera lens and liners for my rain boots. i always have cold feet and hands and those fleec eliners will keep me nice and toasty warm.
