Coat update!!!

Having coats on the brain, I sent a link to this cute one, found here, to my hubby.

I’m always embarrassed to ask for gifts*, but I decided that this one was just right, and that I would really like to have it, and that my hubby would never know if I don’t ask him, and never know where to find it unless I sent the link.  Rather to my surprise, he accepted the schmoozing well!  He said, “I always like to know what you’d like for Christmas!  I like it!  It looks like you — what you’d like.”


So, all you slightly-condescending, Burberry-wearing proper Scottish ladies**:  Next time I come, I won’t be wearing $1000 worth of impressive warm wool, but neither will I be wearing “gigantic mountain puffa jackets with 30 yellow zips and pockets.”  (Thanks to (un)relaxed dad for this giggle-inducing description.)


*If you really know me, you should be able to read my mind, and just choose the perfect gift, right? 
**Note, if you’re a Scot and a lady and you actually know me, this is not directed to you.


About Karen Joy

I'm a partially-homeschooling mother of six -- 3 boys ages 19, 17 and 15 years old, and three girls: 11, 8, and 3. I like birding, reading, writing, organic gardening, singing, playing guitar, hiking, the outdoors, and books. I very casually lead a very large group of homeschooling families in the Phoenix area. I have a dear hubby who designs homes for a local home builder and who is the worship pastor of our church. I live in the desert, which I used to hate, but now appreciate.

  1. Cute jacket! Perfect for Phoenix winters. I expect you will wear pants under yours. : )


  2. *giggle* I didn’t notice the… uh… stripper-like quality to this photo before you pointed it out!! Holy cow. Yes, I will certainly be fully clothed underneath the jacket. It will be, after all, winter. 😉
