Sucker for Christmas music

I LOVE Christmas music. Absolutely love it. Then combine it with country music, and you have perfection in my mind. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw this last night at Kohl's:

It was only $5, and it's for charity, so what more do you need! I've been listening to it nonstop already. I highly recommend it!

I am not going to lie. . . Carrie Underwood is my girl crush. I think she is adorable and always looks great. And I would love to have her hair! She hosted the CMAs last night with Brad Paisley. I believe she wore 10 different dresses. Here are some of them:

Which do you like? I think I like #2 and 5!

Neiman's 40% off sale

Did you check out Neiman Marcus's 40% off sale today? Well I did :)
I picked up the Tory Burch Simone cardigan in black. I am already planning outfits with it! I can't wait for it to arrive. I am really loving all the sales going on (even if my wallet isn't).

Friday we are going out to dinner for my hubby's b-day - so I will be asking for your help with my outfit!

The hubby's birthday

So next weekend is my hubby's birthday. He is very difficult to shop for because he never gives me any ideas. He says he doesn't want anything. I always have to pick my brain to come up with gift ideas. And it doesn't help that Christmas is only about a month after his b-day.
Well, after much brainstorming, here is what I decided on for his b-day:

1.) Burberry tie

2.) Season 1 of The Office

I guess I will find out in a week what he thinks of my gift :)

1.) J.Crew blushed tweed pencil skirt

2.) Banana Republic Helena Peep-toe Wedge in Mahogany

3.) Tory Burch Julianne Peep-toe Wedge

4.) Old Navy Jacket

5.) Tory Burch Simone cardigan
