i have had my eye on this jacket since about the beginning of December. i think it is just adorable. i think this would be the perfect jacket for someone like me. since i'm tall, i can get away with the length of the jacket. and i love the belted tie, that creates separation and gives you more of a figure. this way you don't look like a long tootsie roll/marshmallow. its cute, its comfortable, its functional. now, we live in texas which, again, doesn't really justify the need to have a warm, heavy, jacket. so, here are my top 3 reasons for wanting or wishing for it...
1) we do a lot of tailgating, whether it be Cowboys games or Arkansas games. We enjoy a fun tailgate, and sometimes those tailgates can get pretty chilly. So, it would be really nice to have a warm, yet flattering jacket.
2)Since the whole global warming thing has gone to crap, and we've had one of the coldest winters in a long time (hence the biggest snow storm in Dallas history this week) i believe you can never be too prepared. Therefor, you need a warm coat.
3)Finally, you never know when you might get invited on a ski trip, make a trip to Chicago or NYC, or ya know, go to New Zealand or something.
Unfortunately these still aren't enough to actually convince myself to pay full price for it. So, I will keep checking jcrew.com everyday until it finally goes on sale, then just maybe i'll make the purchase. until then...

i do have to warn you though, the recipe is called "simple" but those would not be my thoughts about it. while they are great enchiladas, the recipe is quite a process not to mention messy. you will dirty up a lot of dishes making these, but totally worth it. this one will definitely go in the recipe box, but this is probably more of a every-now-and-then recipe.
makes my mouth water just lookin' at them!
alrighty, on another note... today was Superbowl Sunday! The Saints played the Colts. I was begrudgingly for the Saints just because I think they deserved it. Not because of the whole Katrina thing either. I just think they were a good team, and had a great season, and it was their time. anyways, they won! we watched the game over at my dads. i made some really yummy sliders w/chipoltle mayonnaise, brisket quesadillas, and spinach dip. yum! i feel like i gained about 10 pounds from snacking all day! all in the name of football, right?
we played a fun little betting game with quarters during the game. a good way to to have fun, if you really aren't the gambling kind. everyone had to bring a hand full of quarters with them, around $5. we had to answer some questions like, "who will win the coin toss?", "who will be ahead at halftime?", and "who is the winner, and what is the total combined score?" that sort of thing, before the game got started. then if you lost the answer to the question, you had to put a quarter in the pot. if you won the question, then you got to keep your quarter. at the end of the game it all came down to who picked the winner. if you didn't pick the winner then you automatically lose. then if there were more than one winners it came down to the combined overall score, closest without going over. well... winner, winner, chicken dinner! i am the only one who picked the Saints, so i won! $6.50 in quarters! woo hoo! :)
have a good week everyone! its almost valentines day, so don't forget!
