Prokopios didn't show up too well, alas...
I think this might be the third time I have a picture of myself with some sort of stuffed animal on this blog. Guys, I think I have a problem.
Anyways, as I'm not much of a jeans + casual t-shirt kind of girl, I glammed up the look with my pretty grey leather booties, hoop earrings, and a cashmere cardigan for going outdoors:
Can you tell that, after just one day of dressing down, I'm already looking forward to wearing glammier clothes tomorrow for New Year's Eve?
Moving on to other delicious topics, many of you in the comments have asked for the recipe of the oatmeal/cheesecake bars I make. I'm glad to share - I got the recipe from the Food Network! Somehow, in a moment of gluttony last year, I signed up for the Food Network's 12 Days of Cookies e-mails, so in December I get deluged with cookie recipes in my inbox. I've made three of them, I think. These are the clear favorites. Voilà the link: the official name is "Oatmeal Cream Cheese Butterscotch Bars" (mouthful!).
[Let me know if the link doesn't work, people: I can just copy it down for y'all in case there's a problem.]
Any cool plans for New Year's Eve, people? My husband and I will feed his mom and my parents and, if they come, a couple of other guests. It should be pretty low-key, although I'm tempted to dress up to the nines. Hmmm ... we'll see.
And with that, I'm out! Smell you later!
