I have new clothes to talk about! Finally – I’ve been somewhat uninspired by the shops lately, so I haven’t been shopping much (for clothing anyway, I’ve been too spendy with the skincare and makeup). This weekend though, the sales sucked me in. I picked up these grey jeans (with a high waist that helps balance out my long torso/short legs combo) at Urban Outfitters to $15!! I love a great deal. The boots I got at H&M at the start of fall, and they’re really awesome. Whether or not they will last past one winter, we’ll see. The sweater is an oldie from my time in Brooklyn (last seen here and here).

As far as the whole having-a-life thing is going, we got a week off for Thanksgiving. I flew out to DC to spend time with my family and I got to hang with my little niece in between naps and fits. My mom and sister are speaking to her only in Mandarin, so I also got to brush up on my Chinese! Practically no one in Denver speaks Chinese, so it’s gotten rusty from disuse. My niece is just starting to talk, so she taught me that her favorite toy (which is a mother fox from IKEA) is called hu-li mama. My mom speaks 4 different Chinese dialects, so at dinner times, my niece will say “good eats” in 3 of them – Cantonese, Mandarin and Fujian. hou sic, hao chi, haw jia.
Of course, we also had to take a pre TG dinner family portrait (minus my brother in law).
