Coveted J. Crew Look of the Day

This is my lastest love affair...in coats. Don't get me wrong, I still love my burberry dream coat, and I love the coat I have. But this coat is too cute for words. I love the yellow--it is so different!


I love the, "going to a football game" look that this coat evokes! I want it!

Tailgate Run-through

Today Big Guy and I went on a Tailgate run-through/dress rehearsal. We packed some refreshments in a backpack: Turkey, Brie and apple sandwiches on a kaiser bun with Dijon and honey mustard, mulled wine, and hot chocolate with cardamom. It was all so good, but you know what? sometimes tailgating just calls for man food-- like wings chili and hot dogs! AND BEER! I loved all the stuff we brought but honestly, the traditional tailgating food really would have hit the spot. We tailgated with some friends who were going to the game and we went to a south loop bar called Krolls. It was nice. The Ace pear cider and loaded tater tots hit the spot. We had so much fun. I can't wait until the real deal. I will make sure to post some pics when we go in November--In the mean time, does anyone have any ideas of fun things we could make or bring to the ultimate tailgate?
