Brrr.... the Skunk Needs a Scarf

It's about to get random up in here people... just because that's the kind of mood I'm in today. Totally random. 

Let's start with the obvious & give Lisette at High Note Designs a big round of applause for her overnight work on the blog! (I'll pause while you applaud.) She did my original design almost a year ago, so I obviously turned to her for my updates. First, I am in love with my amazing new main picture. In case you're wondering... that's Ella - dressed as a skunk. AKA - pretty much the cutest thing you'll see all day. Lisette also added a popular posts section to the sidebar and added a new section to the navigation bar above for all of my health & weight loss posts! She's ah-mazing. If you need anything design related, she comes highly recommended. 

Moving on... I'm obsessed with this scarf from Zara.

The problem is, it's completely sold out. I can't find it anywhere... except on eBay. Anyone care to guess how much it's going for there? Over $150... for a scarf that was originally $30. I'm so annoyed by it, as I have mentally created at least 5 outfits that I want to wear it with. But a $150 scarf is not in the budget. I guess it just wasn't meant to be... 

I could really use a scarf this week too, because it is frigid here! We're experiencing round two of the Polar Vortex. (Thankfully no one is overreacting the way they did the first time.) Last night, as we were leaving practice, Ella looked at me from under her puffer coat's hood & said "Brrrr." And my heart melted. I mean... how could it not... 

And I was going to end this by telling you about how I just signed up for another half-marathon, but registration still hasn't opened yet. I'm so confused because it says it opens on Wednesday, January 22nd. I assumed that meant in the morning. I guess we'll just have to talk about that tomorrow... 

Happy Wednesday! 


  1. That scarf is just amazingly beautiful!!! I love it!
