my outfit: black and blue!

EDITED TO ADD: AWESOME!  This bag was featured in Rue Magazine recently... check it out here!

I have two very important shout-outs in this post...

1. A huge thank you to the gorgeous and generous Linda from Rose a la Mode... she sent me this blue sweater for Christmas. How sweet is she? Also, she completely guessed on what I might like and my size and she nailed it. I love this sweater and have worn it tons. Today it makes it's blog debut! yay! A huge thanks Linda! Blog buddies are the BEST!

2. My brother snagged this uber chic and practical bag for me for Christmas. The tote is from Lamb here in Grand Rapids but the bag is made by Apolis Activism which is owned by a friend of Ben's. Very, very cool stuff. This bag is HUGE and has a waterproof lining and a classic leather handles. I'm so in love. It's my new gym bag... and that's big business around here. My gym bag is second in command to sequins or Kate on most days. So it has to keep up, and it doesn't disappoint.

How was your weekend? Mine was great... SUPER cold, but the sun was shining which is a rarity here, so I sure enjoyed whipping out the sunglasses and stocking up on Vitamin D.

We also went to a basketball game at my alma mater with the kids. Pure fun! It has been years since I've been back on the campus, even though I live minutes from there. So much and nothing has changed. It felt great.

It's Monday... so I'm gong to keep this short and sweet. But to review... visit Rose a la Mode if you haven't lately and check out all of Apolis Activism's cool products. Go on now!
