    I have not heard of the Good Wife! But I just looked it up, it sounds like a good story! Although I'm not sure I can add on to my pile of 11 shows I'm shamelessly watching.

    The Good Wife…I have it set to record. Love it.
    Yes, times have changed somewhat for women but.. there will always be men in this world who do think they are entitled to the patriarchal dividend.

    I love those hair elastics as well! I bought some and then shortly after decided to get my hair cut ala Carey Mulligan. I am now patiently waiting for my hair to grow out again so that I start using those elastics.

    I'm loving the spices! They look/sound amazing! As for the hair tie, I'm in love with them as well! I refuse to use any others since running into them about a year ago!

    What a lovely little owl !
    Mulling spices is a nice idea for the house…what are the spices that you use ? I see cloves and cinnamon…
