Holiday Shopping Time!

Well ladies.

I have put it off long enough, but I must Christmas shop tomorrow.

I am going to get up early, armed with reinforcements. My sissies, & diet coke.

While I am terrified of the fellow holiday shopper, and I cringe at the thought of packed parking lots, I do get excited about an all day shopping excursion outfit. Yeah I am one of those weirdo’s who buys clothes and says things like “this would be PERFECT for running errands all day!” No lie. I love nothing more than a casual, yet chic, shopping outfit. I don’t know why, but I guess I feel much more the part of the posh shopper when I am dressed to empress.

Tomorrow I have decided I will be outfitted in ma jeggings, tall boots and an assortment of brown/neutral colors. LOVE me some brown. I can’t get away from it… just says fall/winter to me in such a glorious way.

Here is my vision. And yes I have decided that casual, down, messy Carrie hair is the perfect look for said outfit. If I get tired of it I will simply pull into the poofymessybunthingy as referenced here. I am also thinking a nice smokey eye, NARS orgasm blush {duh} and my new favorite lipgloss which I purchased today during lunch!

Sadie is so excited about the excursion that she put on her Christmas best!

Ok, now Sadie will not be joining, but I just thought she completed the look. Too bad she is too much of a fatty for me to cart around all day. But rest easy Sadie, Christmas come early for ya this year dear.

I squeled when this came in today for Miss Sadie Belle. I am so excited I can’t stand it. Tomorrow I am taking her to get her hair and nails did at the groomer, and then I shall bequeath her this gift.

She shall henceforth be known as Sadie Belle-LouLou.

Bahahahaha.Oh girls I am looking forward to a holiday weekend! I plan to get ALL my Christmas shopping AND wrapping FINISHED. Yes that is right, I will NOT put it off this year.

I hope everyone has a fantabulous weekend, I better see y’all on twitter to keep me in the loop whilst shopping! PS JESS if you don’t get on twitter I am gonna cut you.Kristen-I LOVE you, give Mrs. Carol hugs for me. So excted she is coming home today sweet girl! xo

  4. Amber says:

    What a cute outfit!!! Wanna come style me? LOL

  5. You need a concierge service like we have at work. You tell them where you parked your car, they bring in all your gifts, wrap them and put them back in your trunk. It is wonderful!

  6. Oh I'm in the same boat this weekend too! I might or might not be sneaking some 'personal' shopping in…

    Good luck and love the chic shopping outfit! Side note: literally right as I clicked on your page there was a commercial on for the new Narnia movie and Carrie was singing 🙂 I think it was destiny!

  7. Jess says:

She is such a fashionista like her momma!! Have a great time shopping with your sissies! That is exactly why I always wanted a sister– you got TWO!! Even better!! I promise to look into Twitter I am ALOT cuter without scratches!!! haha LY! Shop till you drop tomorrow!! Diet Coke and cute boots and ALL!!!

  8. Mighty Burns says:

    How cute is that collar! I love it 🙂 My cat has a little bling black one too 🙂
    Good for you! You drink that diet coke and elbow with the best of them!

  9. Totally agree if the outfit you have on isn't equally as cute as the stuff your shopping for it's a failed shopping trip. Love Nars Orgasm blush I have the Super Orgasm lol.

  10. Erica says:

    love that outfit. Sadie has an awesome mommy, love love her new bling. i added you to twitter a few days ago. Have fun shopping.XO

  11. Love the outfit!! Good luck with the shopping 🙂

  12. Abby Farnham says:

    i love your new blog header!

  13. I love this. I seriously thought I was the only one who planned out my shopping outfit the night before! However, I am still putting off my shopping… Soo bad, I know. I just have zero motivation to do it this year! By the way, those boots— to die for. I just ordered a black pair quite similar from Piperlime and can't wait til they get here! What brand of jeggings do you have?! I've been on a serious hunt for a good pair and just haven't been able to settle on one. Have fun girl!

  14. Whitney says:

    I was shocked at myself for already finishing my Christmas shopping before the week of Christmas this year. GO ME! 🙂 And I just have to say I share your love for casual comfy clothes. Over the knee boots and layers are my key pieces to any "trugging" outfit I have. Good luck with the shopping!

  15. Brittany says:

    Please Share where you got that sparkly doggie necklace !! The Boyfriend has a sweet baby girl ROTTWEILER in serious need of something girly !!

  16. Café Moka says:

  23. Angie says:

    hello! The Become Brow and Lash Enhancer actually works pretty well. You just have to apply it every single night, which sometimes I'm not the best at remembering to do. I took pictures of my lashes when I started using it and I can definitely tell a difference. It's well worth the $50! Here's the link for ya!Lash%2bBrow-Extender
    Let me know if you have any questions!

    Hope your Christmas shopping went well yesterday!

  24. Cute look! I can totally see Carrie Underwood in it and you do kinda look like her!


  25. Kerr says:

    hope you were sucessful!

  26. Brittney says:

    oh my word i die for Sadie's bedazzled collar!

  27. You & the sissies look SO TAN in that picture- love it. How did Miss Sadie Belle enjoy her gorgeous gift? 🙂

  28. Michelle says:
