the power of suggestion

green coat
alicia about did me in the other day with her coat challenge. i love coats, but have little to show for it. decided to go for it anyway. this green coat was given to me by my friend beth (along with many other green things) last year while i was pregnant. which means i have yet to step out in this great coat. i think this is going to be a good winter. and it just so happens that i found another great coat while i was in portland. she must have been sending me good coat karma.
blue coat
how cool is this? i love everything about it, the color, the buttons but my favorite part is the collar. i picked up this little number at a place called pin me apparel on n mississippi ave. very cool shop, and very fortuitous for me. this coat keeps whispering in my ear, make me a big fuzzy brown scarf please. very convincing. you know what else is convincing? pictures of pretzels.
damn good
i got right on that friday afternoon and ate three with yellow mustard before leaving for a fancy pants dinner. probably not the best decision, but who could resist warm pretzels out of the oven? i couldnt. i also couldnt resist alicia's post involving said pretzels. what does that say about my susceptibility? i am not sure, but if anyone is planning on baking and posting pictures of a chocolate cake anytime soon, please let me know.

Um... I made some gluten-free vanilla cupcakes with dark chocolate buttercream today.

And your coats are purty. I don't own a coat. (Weird, I know, especially for Kansas.)

I'm so glad the pretzels turned out well. A little complicated (oh, Martha) but very yummy!

That blue coat is perfect! It looks great on you with your dark hair.

your coats are wonderful, that blue one perfect! I know what you mean, I got the coat bug from Alicia too, and found a nice sand colored one to add to my winter wardrobe the other day. And I saw those pretzels over at Mayfly too and printed out the recipe, hoping for a moment to make them today. I need them ; )

I love pretzels with mustard! It's been YEARS since I have made some. Hmmm. And Pin Me is a great store with, obviously, great coats!

these are both great. i love the colors. do you have trouble finding cool coats because you are so tiny? although perhaps vintage stuff is easier for you to find (i always find stuff that's way too petite).

I love those coats -- both of them! Gimme color and I'm happy.

I almost made some of those pretzels after seeing them on Mayfly, too! I will soon -- they look so yummy.

Oh, adorable coats. I can't even decide which one I like better. I'll just take a pretzel, and call it good. :-)
