Happy New Year!

2008 has flown by! It has been an amazing year for me (check out my birthday post for a reflection type post). But I also lost my beloved Great Uncle, who I am named after (my middle name is a boy's name). I was able to spend one last afternoon with him shortly before he died. We looked at my Australia photos and I even showed him my ski diving video.

I think 2009 will be even better! I will go on a Mediterranean cruise with my sister after I graduate in May. I will start the job search (time to officially join the real world!) and if that doesn't work out, back to Australia I will go! I have no idea what else 2009 will have in store but I am hopeful it will be a great one!

More fab blogs!

Thank you girls for the awards!

American Living

Did you know that Ralph Lauren has a line at JCPenney? I have known for quite some time but didn't really take a closer look at the line until last night.

This is the sweater I was looking at. I love the stripes and buttons on the shoulder (I think Boden did a similar one). I want to get it in pink and navy. So cute!

I am not sure about the rest of the collection.

This blazer is on sale for $99. The models (in my opnion) have the blazer paired with some of the ugliest outfits (what is that ugly denim blouse she has on under??) but I think it could be cute.

There is also this blazer, though slightly more expensive.

These boots look a lot like my J.Crew boots

These PJ pants look comfy and can't beat the price!

Anyone out there have any American Living items?

This is going to be a quick post because the internet problem here in casa Nautical has resurfaced once again. How did I spend my vacations pre-internet?? ;)

Fred Flare has expanded their "Team" shirts. You can get Team Blair, Serena, Nate or Chuck shirts for $26

I also found this top that Blair wore in a November episode. Cynthia Steffe blouse

Boatman Geller Carrie and Tuck

I already know my mom got me the Carrie and Tuck for Christmas

So now I am just thinking about which refill pack I will get:

This one would be the obvious choice but I already have a lot of anchor stationery so maybe one of these?
