3 purple lies

My favourite things

I think I'm hitting a blogslump.  Maybe I need blogcation or a revampification or something.  While I used to be able to fling out 5 posts a week, I'm now struggling to come up with 3.
I'm going to have to think on this one over the weekend.
I will leave you with my current list of favourite things in no particular order:

passtime: watching How I Met Your Mother with hubster.  We're on season 4 and working our way up.  Winter is my favourite time to cuddle up with a glass of red and the husband.
book: i'm in a book club now that chooses a monthly book which is been delightful thus far.  It's nice not to think about what I want to read next.  I just finished Still Alice.  Very good read.  But my favourite right now would be the I am Number Four series which I annihilated over a weekend.  I think I may take on something light until next book club book.  Any suggestions?
mascara: Yves St. Laurent's Shocking.  Love the volume and length. You can get it at Sephora.
fashion trend: tall boots.  Anyone call pull them off and they're great for winter and with almost any outfit.
food: soups.  I'm on a homemade soup kick but would definitely order soup at a restaurant before anything else.
drink: red wine.  Hubby got me the best gift, inspired by Cougartown's Big Carl (anyone watch that show?) This is Big Red (Big Carl's northern cousin) who is great for those red wine nights.

workout: treadmill + netflix.  I strap the ipad over the treadmill and before you know it, I've covered a couple episodes of HIMYM.  Although I really must amp up my workouts, I've been bouncing back and forth between 3 pounds and really need to lose it already.
time of day: when Dan gets home from work.  The kids are usually in a great mood and super hilarious.  Last night Dan's comment about Lucia was she gets more awesome every single day.
item of clothing: dresses.  I'm gonna rock the dress all winter long because it makes me feel happy and pretty and when I'm in a good mood, life is grande.
thing to do when I'm stressed: browse my favourite stores online.
online store: right now I'm obsessed with lighting as I'm trying to wrap my brain around the lighting scheme for the new pad.

That's it for now.  Have a great weekend!


  1. I love boots, too! I think I am going to throw some on today.

  2. I have been reading 'The Secret Keeper' by Kate Morton and it's very good!
