Thanksgiving recap.

I’m having quite a time readjusting to the real world after a very nice long Thanksgiving break of sleeping late, seeing family and friends, and doing a lot (I mean a lot) of eating. The turkey carb coma has lifted just enough that I can recap my adventures at home for you.

Starting with Holiday windows in New York… relish in the Kate Spade goodness at Lord and Taylor; doesn’t it make you want to throw glitter up in the air and place a bulk order for vintage christmas light bulbs? (Ok, maybe it’s just me.)

Speaking of Kate Spade, I wandered around the Broome Street store for the better part of an hour with my sister and girlfriend and finally got to try on some of their new scent Twirl. It smells as good as it looks and I got some to take home with me…  I can’t stop sniffing my wrists, which probably looks alarming to those around me — but it’s worth it.

Other city stops included TopShop, Madewell, M&J Trim, Mood Fabrics, and a delicious lunch at The Grey Dog. I admired their nautical decor outside — I think it might have been what drew us in for a bite. And I snapped some pictures of the bright red lights next door.

I dove head first into mashed potatoes and stuffing and did not come up for air for hours… but somehow forgot to take any pictures of our actual Thanksgiving dinner. The only proof it occurred is in the stack of clothing that no longer fits me from all of the eating.

I did manage to get one or two pictures from a get together with friends on Friday night, and have to share one of the bar set up. I’m quite jealous of the vintage ice bucket my mom scooped up at a tag sale — isn’t it tre-Mad Men? And I bought a bottle of Prairie vodka based entirely on the label design, quite the eye catcher:

So, there you have it. Shopping and vodka, just as the holidays should be. How did you celebrate?

    I would like to live in that Kate Spade window… or just win the lottery so I can buy it all up!
