Friends Fave Things Part 2
My cousin, Jennifer, is the most loyal blog reader/commenter I have. (Next to you, Aunt Angie.) Well, she also has some really great things on her Christmas list that I must share with you all for your holiday gift giving season.
Remember when I said I would not mention all the books I loved because it would take up nine posts? Luckily, Jennifer brought them up. If you like a beach read no matter what season it is, you will love any book by Jen Lancaster. Start with this one, Bitter is the New Black: Confessions of a condescending, ego maniacal, self-centered, smart ass or why you should never carry a Prada bag to the unemployment office.
I am always looking for a new show for Tommy and I to watch together, so I love Jennifer's suggestion of Entourage. For some reason, 4 primetime hours an evening of HGTV doesn't do it for him.
Also on Jennifer's wish list are these tall Ugg Boots. Love them! Do you think someone who is 5'0" could pull these off? (That would be me. Not Jennifer.)
Change of direction...I want to help you all shop for your inlaws. Specifically, the men in our lives. Are they not impossible? Since I am oh-so-creative, I am getting my 2 brother-in-laws and father-in-law they exact same thing - an instant marinater. I have no idea if this thing works, but it sounds pretty cool. Besides, I have always thought the whole "hours to marinate" thing is pretty ridiculous. Who plans their dinner that far in advance? (Clearly, not me. That could be why we have a meal-in-a-bag about 3 times a week...)
And for you Tulsans, if you have inlaws who have a long history in Tulsa, you might consider getting them copies of Jack Frank's documentaries. I am getting my father-in-law and Tommy's grandma copies of all the past films and this year's new film, Tulsa A to Z.
More gift ideas soon!
