This is what I wore on New Years Day. I thought I was sufficiently layered what with a hat, turtleneck, sweater, fleece vest, jean skirt, tights, socks and cozy booties....but no. That cold cut right through my layers till my toes were numb.
Sweater: Gap Outlet
Vest: Breckenridge, gift from hubby
Skirt: Old Navy
Booties: Macy's, gift from mommy
My dear friend Erika was in town for the holidays, so a few girlfriends and I got together to spend time with her before she heads back to upstate New York. We ventured out into the frigid temps for some Pho (Vietnamese soup). We spotted these gigantic bowls of Pho at a nearby abandoned table. (Don't worry, Erika didn't really eat a stranger's Pho).
This is the size we had.
Saigon in St. Paul Midway serves up the best Pho.
And I cannot get enough of their spring rolls either.
I'm hungry just writing about it.
Back at Elaina's house, a few more lovely ladies joined
us for tea, dessert and a friendly round of Yahtzee.
temperature, we moved up there for a little crafty action.
Nadine made these pretty hair clips out of fancy buttons.
Aren't they fun?
Resolutions for 2010: More girly days. More Pho.
