Strawberry Wednesday

Because it's in-between-holidays week, and WendyB agrees, I'm forging on with the Berry today and tomorrow. And then it's Happy New Year's to you all! I was pretty happy with 2009, but it did bring me Arm Baby. This favorite nickname was inspired by all the people in our old-school hood who said, when seeing us carrying our daughter, "Don't hold her too much, you're going to end up with an Arm Baby!" and "She'll never let you put her down!" I love this, because it evokes cartoon visions of me holding Arm Baby when she's like, you know, 16. And wearing stuff like this:

You don't have to pay more than $30 for this faux fur trend. And this faux-leather vest is under $10 on clearance.

Lots of sweater minis at Strawberry on sale for $9.99. Keep the tassel or hack it off.

Loads of leggings from $6.99-$9.99.

There are lots of different colored leggings with the ankle cut-out. Click on the black leggings to see the v. cute pattern.

Strawberry Empire State Building, on 34th between 5th & 6th Avenues
Strawberry Manhattan Mall, level 2, 33rd & 6th Avenue

ROTFLMAO (rolling on the floor, laughing my arm off) at "Arm Baby."

Awh Arm Baby - how lovely, people annoy me who put the mockers on a brief period of your life when you can carry a baby around without a care in the world even when it gets heavy - bundle of fundle!
