TRY IT THURSDAY....My dish soap went Country FANCY....

Are you singing "I'm going country...." or "I'm so fancy.." in your head?!!? LOL!! The moment I saw THIS wine bottle I KNEW it was destined for more than wine....That lil rooster in her nigh heels and pearls was my kinda girl (and truth be told the ONLY reason I bought the bottle). The wine was too dry for my liking....

BUT the bottle I filled with dish soap and added a wine pourer / stopper too (it took LOTSA shopping to find this...I was thinking the pourers you see at the bars would work good BUT it came apart and fell down into the bottle). I found this FAB one at marshall''s actually for wine (obviously) and has the pourer and the stopper (works like a DREAM)....

Magic of the Season....MACY'S CHICAGO

IF you are planning to go downtown to look at the windows DON'T scroll down it will be a spoiler.....

The infamous trumpets...

All the reviews I heard of the windows this year weren't favorable....I personally LOVED them!! I thought they were fun, a nod to past and present (seemingly the theme of the season this year)

My daughter was born in Minneapolis....but Chicago holds a place in her heart....

This window was cute and animated....the chef chasing the dog....

The city is SO ALIVE....I LOVE going there to just  FEEL the energy...and at the holidays EVERYTHING is MORE magical!! People always talk about how crowded things are THIS is a crowd people!!!

MERRY Christmas to all and to all a goodnight....

After checking out the windows we headed inside (this door was a display in the 6th floor....Being a blogger we find the beauty in EVERYthing)

Did a lil shopping....Tradition is EVERY year we each pick an ornament....

Admired the Kate Spade accessories that are all over blogland....

And THIS coach purse....I was just seeing if the fur was real and at the tune of $895.00 I'm going with yes?

The entire first floor has every cosmetic counter you can think of....One day I just want to go there and explore the cosmetics....this day I stuck with MAC 

And got "Up The Amp"...thank you Santa :)

Can't help but admire the architecture....SO GORGEOUS and classic

The money shot right here....several of the shops....from the escalator view

LUCKY number 7

Dear Santa....the things I want for Christmas can't be bought....but you know my wishes...
