Post the rules. Tag 5 more people!

Here are my obsessions:

1.) Facebook. Update your status, people!!!

2.) Puppies. The breath, the antics, the deeeeep sleep, and the kisses.

3.) Anything uber-soft and preferrably furry (faux, of course) and ideally in the form of a pilliow or blanket.

4.) IM'ing my brother funny stuff, theories of physics or philosophy (mostly those philosophies which can be analogized by snack foods), nonsensical, overly-analytical movie lines, or just simply random junk (and captioned pics from

5.) Food and wine, in virtually any form, any meal of any day or any celebration, any time of year, but especially at the holidays (yes, this counts as a mere One obsession!)

It's beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAS!

Especially in the living room. These pictures do not do it justice, I apologize (damn cheap-ass digital P.O.S., the CanonEOS Rebel Ti slr is now at the top of the wish list)... Oh, and Santa? Can we have six more weeks of holidays, please?

Who doesn't just LOVE a good soft teddy mouse and an old fashioned rocking horse? To me that is the epitome of Christmas.

Black Tie Optional

Despite the goofy grin on my face, I thought the outfit was successful for the Studio 23 Black & White Affair. Especially love the clutch I found at Charlotte Russe for $18! I wish you could see the boots - Ann Klein on huge sale at the outlet.
(The Gallery event was the opening of the exhibition of Harry Ahn's portraits. Amazing! I highly recommend seeing him if you get a chance. I have yet to find out if I bought anything at the silent auction and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the two orange & ivory horse paintings which will inspire an entirely new office decor.)
