Experiences That Made Me Happy

Seasonal Cast Iron Dip at Haywood Common: Swiss, Apple & Spinach served with a grilled baguette

Lunch and InstaMeet #7 planning at Haywood Common with Holly on Tuesday. After I posted photos of our sixth InstaMeet last month, Haywood Common reached out and offered to host our seventh one! Holly and I are ecstatic! We love Haywood Common and this is the first time since we started hosting these meet-ups in February that a local business has reached out to US to host. We usually hold them at our fav coffee shop, Odd’s Cafe, and that has been awesome but it’s good to change it up now and then and a great sign of how much our meet-ups have grown. I can’t wait!

Some Things I Really Loved This Week (#11)-www.roseyrebecca.com Being snowed in over the weekend. I don’t know how you feel about it but I LOVE snow. Asheville got hit with its first real snowstorm of the season this past weekend and it dumped about a foot of snow in our neighborhood.  I heard that other parts of Asheville didn’t get quite as much so I feel lucky. We celebrated Sunday with huge stacks of pancakes and lots of hot coffee. There’s something so relaxing about being snowed in and knowing that you don’t have to go anywhere or see anyone. I’m so grateful that we never lost power and for our warm, cozy home.

My 2018 Holiday Wish List

OH HEY! Happy Wednesday! Happy less than two weeks until Christmas! WHAT? How did that happen? I need to go shopping,

There was a time, about 300 years ago, when I would write my Christmas wish list in July. I distinctly remember receiving the Toys R Us catalog when I was little, circling every single toy, and handing it over to my parents like “yes, I’ll take twelve of each, please, thank you.”

I’ve grown up (slightly) since then but with Christmas right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to post a holiday wish list on my blog!  If I were handing a list over to my mom this year, as a 31-year-old woman, here’s what would be on it:

My Holiday Wish List- www.roseyrebecca.com

This Sun Valley Down Parka in Navy from Eddie Bauer because I’ve always wanted a jacket that feels like a comforter and covers my butt.

This Candle for Grammar Police from Whiskey River Soap Co. because it was obviously made for me.

This awesome blue travel mug from High Five Coffee because LOOK AT IT! Plus a gift card because what the hell am I going to put in my High Five travel mug without one?

A gift card and all of these cute hats and scarves from my favorite Asheville clothing store Minx Boutique.

These Shower Mists from C & Co because they’re amazing and make me feel like staying in my shower all day long when I use them.

A gift card to Hole Doughnuts so I can eat ALL of these Chocolate Sorghum Bourbon doughnuts and perhaps share some with you, too.

New comfy bedding from Parachute Home. Jeff and I have Parachute sheets and they are the coziest, softest sheets in the world. We’d really love a new duvet and duvet cover from them so I can fulfill my laziest dream of living in bed all day with our cat Aslan.

These of June Sunbeam Earrings in Dusty Rose because my friend Amanda has a pair and I’m super jealous and want a pair, too.

A Tea CSA Subscription from Asheville Tea Company because who wouldn’t want a cup of tea?

This Great Job Mug by Emily McDowell because it’s true and I definitely need more mugs.

(Note: I definitely DON’T need more mugs because I have 1,000 and Jeff will likely kill you if you buy this for me but buy it anyway because I love it and you’re a good friend. K thanks.)

(Another Note: I just realized this mug is out of stock which means that if you order it for me  AFTER the holidays, I can just sneak it on the shelf and Jeff will never know I put it there.)

(And another note: You can also buy me this mug or this one or really anything from Emily McDowell’s website because it’s all so fun and relatable and amazing.)

OK. I’m done. What’s on YOUR holiday wish list!? Let me know in the comments!

As always, THANK YOU for reading!
