stopping by woods on a snowy morning

Oh la la, je suis fatiguee ce matin!

Last night I found myself in a baking frenzy. My college girlfriends and I are doing a book-and-cookie exchange for Christmas and I had to get everything shipped out this morning so I've been a little frantic. I spent about four hours beating ingredients (by hand!) and opening and closing the oven before collapsing on the couch around 10:30. I made three kinds - peanut butter chocolate kiss, ginger and oatmeal raisin (K said his favorite Christmas cookie was oatmeal... I've never heard of such a thing, but you've got to please the public!)

Today's outfit was inspired by a couple of things: my semi-new green wool jumper (which i was debating returning because it fits a little bit larger than I would like) and my shiny new Ruche headband:

I just like the green wool too much (and it's in such great condition!) that I can't bring myself to give it up. Besides, with the mountains of leftover cookies hanging around the apartment, a little leeway might not be a bad thing!
