However- at least I can turn lemons into lemonade and use it as an apt post title, no?
You see, I'm getting a sneaking suspicion that
For those of you who don't know, the only iPod I own comes in the form of my broken iPhone. That means that
the one time I worked out in the last 6 months every time I go running, I have to do it sans music. Or I have to take The Mr.'s iPod, which only has techno songs/ songs without words, because "the words are distracting" (?!?). And I'm not allowed to download Lady Gaga onto it, so really-where's the fun there?
I'm partial to the pink, the blue, and especially the orange, which reminds me of my wedding bouquet:
(Please forgive the highly unflattering "ZOMG I'm Maaaaariedddddddd!" face in the photo. I clearly don't wear 'Just Married' excitement well.)
Also- did you know that iPods can be personalized? I just found out about this recently courtesy of Slynnro. The iPod website says you still have until 12/19 to order with engraving and still make the holiday deadline- fancy that! You can even get 1% cash back if you order through your Ebates* account, such a score!
An Armband for said iPod Nano
This Incase Model seems to get particularly good reviews for the price. Another bonus would be a pair of earphones with the curly, over-your-ear piece that holds them in place? Goodness knows those fancy earbuds of Apple's are about as uncomfortable as it gets. (Or is it just me that thinks that?)
Kerastase Lait Nutri-Sculpt
I rediscovered an almost-empty bottle of this miracle product this weekend while cleaning the bathroom. I put a dime-sized amount on my damp hair before blowdrying, and it makes a MIRACULOUS difference in the shine and feel of my hair. I kid you not, the only difference in my morning routine has been this, but it has multiplied the sweet "you look hot!" comments from my husband 10 fold.
Gift Certificate to the Heather Bailey Store
Heather Bailey's Online Store is the one website guaranteed to make my heart go *pitter pat* each and every time I visit. The colors and patterns just speak to my soul! Her site is so full of creativity. I'm dying to make the Henrietta pin cushion pattern, and also dying to purchase an ungodly amount of Heather's fabrics to sew from my new book One-Yard Wonders.
(how precious is this Eloise turtle kit from Heather Bailey?!)
Gift Certificate to Michael's
Finally, what budding craft obsession would be incomplete without a gift certificate to Michael's? They just opened a huge location on the Upper West Side, and I have already spent *hours* wandering the aisles. The first post-Christmas project I'd like to tackle is a scrapbook of all things wedding related- bachelorette parties, rehersal dinners, the wedding, and the honeymoon. I have Ziploc bags full of momentos shoved into every corner or my desk... I'd love to actually house them in a decent, viewable location!
Well, well, well... I think that about does it! I can't wait to see what Santa comes up with for me!
Happy Holidays to you and yours!
*Just so it's all out there on the table- if you use that Ebates link to sign up, you and I both get $5 Ebates cash back, if qualified.
