I love this idea of Keep Cup. The reusable coffee/commuter mug isn't new - but I always wondered how the baristas knew where the Grande fill line was (outside of filling a cup first and then pouring into the mug, in which case - doesn't that defeat the purpose?). Keep Cup provides standard sizes (also translated here in Starbucks speak): Small/Tall, Medium/Grande, Large/Venti.
What's especially sweet about the Keep Cup is that you can customize your color options! Genius.
You can even purchase in bulk, based on your custom color combo. Next, I'd love to see them offer a gift voucher so someone else may enjoy designing their own Keep Cup - from you! XO

This week is going to fly by, just like 2010 has really. Wishing you lots of holiday cheer to you and yours. XO

Last Thursday was my birthday. I was hoping it would go by quietly, but others had different plans. It was a really busy day at the office with back to back meetings and a few sweet surprises thrown in here and there.
First, my husband had 100 Peruvian Lilies delivered to me at the office.
Then the team surprised me with a North American integration call ending with Red Velvet cupcakes from Sprinkles!
And then a video from our wedding showed up in my inbox - secretly completed in time for my birthday! I watched it once (okay, maybe twice) and it gave my butterflies.
The rest of the day rounded out with more meetings, some LA December traffic, Christmas carols care of Nicky and dinner with a quiet birthday song and cake (the one way up above- it's marble because it's old school, like I'm becoming).
I'm a lucky girl. It's been a pretty great year. XO

Have you ever had it? I purchased one, intrigued, from a little bakery in Montrose for our little Thanksgiving Friday cocktail party. The description at the bakery read "Crack Pie: like pecan pie without the nuts."

I've been looking for a classic sweatshirt with the little triangle detail under the collar. This one has chic short sleeves - nice for layering!
I've been a little obsessed with driving gloves for awhile now. These come in an espresso brown (and basic black) and are very reasonably priced.
For our upcoming holiday in Vermont, I'm in need of more sleek boots that work in snow (I'm a city girl, what do I know?).
Another potential piece for Vermont - a comfy hood and scarf in one.

- Not usually a fan of milk in my cocktails, but I'd try a sip of this Spiced White Russian with ginger infused vodka
- Come and knock on my door with Three's Company, the Regal Beagle and The Harvey Wallbanger
- The best part of waking up is a cocktail in my cup! Coffee + Cocktail
- Lazy Boy - a cocktail to sip while sitting in the chair

We challenged 4 performers to expertly pack 3 scenarios (with costume changes) and hundreds of props into the Mazda5 in 2 minutes, or less!
Will they succeed? See the nail biter here:

Just in time for the holidays! Sort of like gold-rimmed china on a special occasion dinner table. XO

Mr. W has been trying to walk them every night when he gets home from work. Weekend mornings, we go down one of the neighborhood stairs to Silverlake for an adventure, for the dogs, at the dog park and an adventure, for me, to LA Mill.
I usually let Mr. W and Melo go first (that way he doesn't see when Millie and I take a quick break).
