going away

i'm off to colorado on thursday. never does one feel so old as when one is to leave town. at least i never do. i have arranged my life so that i never have to plan ahead or do anything i don't want to, for the most part. but now i must make sure that all the things i am resposible for don't fall apart while i'm gone. i'd much rather spend the day reading my new nigella lawson book. but. i must update the dog care document, which i will then post, as it is funny and weird. i must cook everything that will go bad while we're gone. i must leave yummy things in the fridge for the dogsitters, there will be two, as one can't do the whole week. etc. etc.

i am too exhausted for any of this right now, i am realizing, since i spent the whole day so far shopping for a handbag that will make me seem more grown up to my parents, whom i will see in colorado, and also that i will like and use every day and is big enough for a book and sweater and grocery and is not too trendy looking; i am the only girl in new york who wants a bag neither lindsay lohan nor sienna miller would carry. they all have tassles and studs on them and are bronze or baby blue python. yech. anyway, i found one and paid way more than i've ever paid for an accessory for it. but now i am done and can concentrate on the lampshades and velvet coat i need. velvet coats were all the rage this spring and now i can't find hide nor hair of one!


we are going to my favorite place in the whole world, natural hot springs in the sangre de cristo mountain range. i've only been there in the summer, so it will be fun to soak this time in the snow!

Have a wonderful time Tia!

I know, I can't find a velvet jacket either, at least not in the color I want (rose) - they do have some at Anthropologie and I think the Gap, but in limited colors.

I see velvet coats everywhere.

Anthropologie is sooo pricey.

And sooo girly.
