I ate a piece of pie on Wednesday that changed my life.
Let’s dive in a little deeper, shall we?
It tastes like JOY and MERRIMENT.
And if you could taste the laughter of children, it would taste like this.
You might think I’m over-selling this, but I promise I’m not.
If you are local, go eat this pie at Emporium Pies on the square (there is also a location in the Bishop Arts District in Dallas). It’s called “Father Christmas” and it’s a peppermint cream pie with a chocolate cookie crust. I KNOW.
If you’re not local, I’m sorry.
If you go there, tell them Pinterest Told Me To sent you.
You won’t get anything, and they won’t have any idea who you are talking about…
but maybe if enough people mention me the good people at Emporium Pies would reward me.
Ask her and she’ll tell you the pie was magical too. 🙂
I know you’ve seen me carrying it, but I don’t know I’ve adequately expressed my love for this bag.
The only thing better than this bag, would be this bag filled with pie.
(You can find my scarf HERE and my earrings c/o Kendra Scott but also found at Nordstrom HERE. My shirt and pants are sold out.)
(Please ignore more crazy, and just look at my sweet dog.)
While we are here, here’s an up close pic of one of my favorite little areas in my house right now.
The 2 tier wire stand sits right there all the time, but I put miniature poinsettias in it on the bottom level, kept apples on the top level (my little guy eats at least 1 apple per day….and he ONLY EATS HONEYCRISP) 🙂 and tied a big bow on top of the stand to dress it up for Christmas. And I love how you can see my chalkboard in the background on the right and my vintage kitchen scale in the background on the left. Yep, this area is definitely one of my favorites.
Here I am carrying it over the last couple of months.
But THIS one is my favorite for sure.

I’m a lucky girl.
And I found SEVERAL things that I knew you ladies would want to know about.
CHECK OUT THIS DARLING COAT!
LOOK AT THE PLAID LINING!
AND I KNOW I DON’T HAVE TO POINT OUT THE TOGGLES,
BUT IT HAS TOGGLES LADIES.
My favorite is the camel color HERE.
And I have no idea why, but the charcoal coat is 50% OFF right now, making it ONLY $38.98!
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium. The small was definitely too tight across my chest.
(“beautiful” tee HERE, leopard belt HERE, Hunter boots HERE)
When looking for the link above, I found several Junior’s coats (that are already amazing prices) ON SALE for an additional 25-50% OFF!
See pics below and click on what you are interested in!
And I finally found a fur vest that I not only didn’t hate, I actually liked!
But here’s the sad part.
I can’t find it online!
So girls, help a blogger out!
Somebody either e-mail me the source or leave it in a blog comment!
I will add the link as soon as I get a tip! 🙂
I was wearing a medium in this vest, and it was found in the Junior’s department at Nordstrom.
If I remember correctly, it was under $70.
Come on peeps! Don’t let me down! 🙂
Click HERE for this side slit sweatshirt tunic.
It is cozy and a little big more edgy than a regular sweatshirt.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small!
I found THIS tote also, and I reallllllllly liked it in the store.
And then I got home and read the great reviews!
It’s $54, so it’s a great price point, and you can either zip it up or down to change the shape.
Click HERE for the tote!
And I didn’t see THIS one in person, but I wish I had. I’ts $48!
Also, I noticed that my BP booties have also been re-stocked in the chocolate color!
Find them HERE.
So, after trying on THIS side slit sweatshirt above, I put it on my Christmas list.
I actually sent it in an e-mail to my mother-in-law.
And if I know her (and I think I do), that little baby is already on the way to her house.
Here’s one of the ways I plan on wearing it.
I think it’s going to be long enough to wear with leggings with one of my Target Long and Lean tanks
And yes, that’s my new Kate Spade watch I bought yesterday morning (and then told Chris he bought it for me when he woke up). He’s so thoughtful and generous. 🙂

Kate Spade studs HERE (ON SALE!) / Kate Spade watch HERE (ON SALE!)

I want to be cozy.
This was supposed to be where I had a cute little gift guide I’d put together from Target.
But you know what they say about the best laid plans.
I’m thinking it will happen by Monday though, so stay tuned! 🙂

Just kidding, there’s not a 10.
But it felt weird not having a 10, which is why there’s a 10.
I just thought of a #10!

So leave your vote in the comments, if you care. 🙂
