The Proverbs 21 Woman :o)

Tonight I did something totally awesome. I wasted an hour. Just totally, utterly wasted it. It was beautiful.

Paige went to bed early, and I had this strange (although not unusual) urge to go shopping! So I logged into Polyvore, and picked out all sort of Christmas presents for my husband that I can't afford to buy. :o) I've been encouraging him to update his wardrobe from jeans and t-shirts for a long time. He calls it by another name(Prov. 21:9), but come on: he's had the same coat since 9th. grade. 9th grade!! You have to admire that man's contentment. Anyway, here are the delicious and slightly ostentatious things I picked out for him. They came from everywhere, from Gap, to Banana Republic, to J.Crew, to Burberry.

(Oh, and keep in mind that he's Korean. Certain things just look cuter asians, don't they?)

While I was dreaming, I also picked him up one of these....(you know, to go with those airplane cufflinks)

So. Beautiful.

In all reality, we're not really getting each other Christmas presents this year, which is just fine with me! We got Paige something, and we're going to have graham cracker pancakes for breakfast. What else could I possibly ask for?
Take care everyone, I hope your last few days of anticipation are holly and jolly!


  1. Graham Cracker Pancakes?!?! I want to hear more about those!

  2. I completely understand that particular things look cuter on
    Asians. My mom is Filipino and also about 5 ft tall haha. There are even shoes that look great on her that wouldnt on others.

    And...I totally appreciate you posting my hat that I made (your idea) on your blog. I kept seeing traffic from your blog to mine, and I kept wondering why. I hope that I get back to regular posting after Christmas. Thanks're so amazing!

  3. I can identify - My hubby has worn the same winter sweater for 17 years! I like what you picked for him.

    I had to go look that chapter up, so good to stop and read. Esp. v 30 ~ Human plans, no matter how wise or well advised, cannot stand against the LORD.~ so grounding!


  4. Thanks for the laugh, you had me for a minute. I often shop for my husband in my head.

  5. Disney you're cracking me up!!! When I saw the title of your post I thought you'd made a typo and meant "proverbs 31 woman" until I read further and then you got me wracking my brain trying to remember what the heck proverbs 21:9 says... went and looked it up again, am laughing a lot. Your hubby is funny!! I like some good biblical humour :)
    I hope you have a very blessed Christmas!

  6. Haha, that is great! I have a similar struggle with my hubby. In our 6+ yrs of marriage he has conceded a few things, but man what I wouldn't give to make over his wardrobe.

  7. I really enjoy following your blog! :) Merry CHRISTmas to you as well! ♥

  8. Oh I wish I could get rid of my husband's entire wardrobe and start over! Jeans and tee's every day. I think you did a good job dreaming up a new look for your husband and I think it would look great on my red-headed one as well!
    We aren't buying gifts for each other either, just the girls. We bought our first home this year, so that covered all the holidays for '09!

  9. "You" are the present.
    It is more than enough for your husband and Paige^^, isn't it?

    I also enjoy visiting your blog everymorning. You inspire me!!
    Thank you so much!!!

    And Merry Christmas !
    (I'm a Korean. I know my English is limited. This is my best. I want to improve my English more at new year^^)

  10. LOL! Did a double take there - very cute! I too want to hear about graham cracker pancakes!

    I just sent my daughter a link to Polyvore with a note saying "you must limit your time".

  11. too funny.I can relate. My hubs has the same pair of ratty old leather slip-ons from when he was 15! and his wardrobe consists of nothing more than jeans and t-shirts that have silly things written on them. I try to get him to buy nice things, but says it makes him feel"stuffy".He does have a nice pair of Gap jeans that he wore for our Wedding, that havn't been worn since.But I dont think he'd mind one of those cars you dream of!!And we dont buy for eachother either, its much nicer to just see the kids open theirs and how happy they are, thats my gift.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family!!

  12. Graham cracker pancakes! Where can I get this recipe?

  13. That's the kind of shopping I do. I'm making several gifts this year, one for the baby, one for Emily and one for my husband. I made the baby a sock doll. Emily a night gown and I'm going to do a painting for my husband. I'll have pics of these on my blog after Christmas sometime. You'll adore the night gown because it has ruffles. I'm also going to download the new Chris Mullins Christmas album off of I Tunes for my husband. I hope you have a blessed Christmas. By the way, I saw that Shona had commented on your blog. She is a very good friend of mine. We go to church together. I told her about you. She is an artist on call for Summerset. She has a very nice blog. It's about art, but I think you would enjoy it.

  14. Aww, I love Polyvore. And yes, it's true: sometimes it takes an Asian to pull off a particular outfit. One of my best friends was Chinese, and wore things beautifully that would've made me seem silly. :-)

    Hope you have a fabulous Christmas!

  15. "(Oh, and keep in mind that he's Korean. Certain things just look cuter asians, don't they?)"

    TOTALLY! The fiance is Viet (and all the old exes are Asian of some sort). Overly stylized items look way better on them than most of the other guys I know.

    Wonder if our halfy daughter will be able to pull off the same thing? Seems like yours totally can!

  16. Hey! Just wanted to say Merry Christmas. I know the true meaning of Christmas will be filling your home and that joy will be with you all. Have a wonderful celebration!
