One-Off Wednesday...on Thursday...

I meant to do this on Wednesday, honest! I totally blanked earlier today though, so I'm posting about 2:30 a.m. Thursday morning. I just wanted to share my weekly roundup of stuff here at the House and with me as well.

So here is your One-Off Wednesday--of things not related to design, makeovers or interiors, just me. Just once a week. ♥

Oklahoma Trip
I am heading off to OK to visit with my mother-in-law and grandparents-in-law for a week, come Monday. Then my mother-in-law and I are going to fly to Atlanta (which was the last place we lived) to visit my brother-in-law and nephew, while my husband drives up to meet us. I'll also get to see my best friend and her husband who live there too. YAY! Family and holidays!
Doubt it snows, but thought I'd post one of when it did...

I just got a new Canon Rebel XS. Wooooo-hooooooo! See, my promises of better photos are close at hand! I got it on Black Friday with a 2G card and camera bag all for $479. This is my only Christmas and birthday gift to be sure! But I'm so excited I'm just fine with that!

 Fell in love with this eau de parfum when I got a sample page thingy in the mail last week. So, since I don't have $85 right now for the parfum version, I went to Sephora to get a mini version. You can spend $10 on an atomizer, and they'll fill it for free.  Ya, I know, right? Awesome!

Skinny Jeans
 I very first pair. I am really excited. Beyond excited actually. You see, I'm pear shaped in the near extreme and this is simply a style I thought I could never pull off. I've tried once or twice out of sheer curiosity, and proven myself right that it is not for me. I do not want to look like I'm shaped like a waffle cone. Anyway, for some idiotic reason, which defies all logic why I would torture myself into trying this terribly esteem-deflating item of clothing on again, I did it...

Apparently, God thought to spare me this once, and the first pair I tried looked amazing. They had slim-enough thighs that they sort of squished mine in just the right amount to make me look curvy, not pointy. Now, I wouldn't wear them with flats or anything since my ankles are small and my thighs are large, but when I pair them with my slouchy boots, my calves look larger, thus thighs seem reasonably slimmed. And--get this--they were only $25. I know this will never happen again, so I am reveling in the delight!

That's all for now! Hope you're doing well, and excuse my slightly less frequent posts next week as I'll be traveling and spending time with family, much like y'all I suppose!
