I love how each has their own style, but at the same time they are so similar.
I want my winter wardrobe to look like theirs.
Thus, I made a polyvore collage to dream about.

Of course no Canadian winter is complete without at least one hockey game.
I even wore flannel to really get in the spirit.
Unfortunately, yet not unexpectedly, the home team lost.
I leave you with one of the gifts I received from Luke.
A little Treeson, and arm warmers from my mom.

There wasn't a single one left at the end of the day.
White chocolate snowflakes, vanilla buttercream icing, and vanilla cupcakes.
Every time I make cupcakes I remember this wonderful gal who makes
the best cupcake deliveries on the web.
Turns out she is a pastry chef, among other things.

So I finally went to see Twilight in theaters last week, and to be honest, it was okay... The standout of the whole movie was the mittens Bella (the main character) wore. Can you tell I'm a knitter?
They were elbow length, made from a thick wool, and looked so cozy!
As soon as I'm done Christmas knitting I'm making up a pair of these.
Subliminal Rabbit was kind enough to share her pattern on her blog.

What a morning to wake up to!
A common sight during prairie winters.
Thus, many of us spend our winters indoors!
The second gift guide will be all about the gift of
entertainment to keep your friends and family busy in the
wintertime. It's getting so close to Christmas, so the remaining gift ideas will be ones you can source locally. I hope, :)!
Settlers of Catan, from $30.00.Boys love boardgames. This one is really competitive but easy to learn; a nice break from Monopoly.
Knitting Kit, from 29.99 Pounds . Of course I would promote this one, :).
This one is from letterbox, but you could easily put one
together on your own. Include yarn, needles, an instruction book,
and other knitting goodies.
A beautiful journal. Around 34.00. For recording dreams, plans, and sketches.
The History of Love by Nicola Krauss. 14.00. Such a good book
Not to mention Twilight. If you know someone who hasn't read this series, it would make a great gift. The book holds up to the hype.
Pushing Daisies Season One. Around 30.00
I have yet to meet a single person who can't enjoy this show.

I may have found a few things.
A coin purse and a cute print.
The socks were not from the craft sale, they're Joe.
They were too cute not to include.
The craft sale was held in an old movie theatre.
I cannot resist old movie theatres.
When I was in high school I worked at one until it was shut down and
replaced with a multiplex.
One more paper, two more finals.
Then it's only my mini thesis until January, hooray!
