I am in a good mood today. It’s Day One in snowflake earrings. I have these snowflake earrings I adore, but I only wear them from the day after Thanksgiving ’til the beginning or March or so. I am savoring every day.
So here I am, sitting with my laptop checking store websites to see if there are any good deals. So far: nothing. Nothing that incites me to scream and click “checkout”. Not even anything that incites me to scream under my breath. I am disappointed in Black Friday. It strikes me as a bit like Body Scanner Opt-Out Day… way media hyped and not really that huge a deal. Correct me if I’m wrong, Black Friday-ers!
Anyway, just because I’m not buying doesn’t mean I’m not oogling some stuff. So I decided to make my holiday wish list. Baseball themed holiday wish list, that is. I’m telling the people in my life to buy me silly things like an Evenstar necklace pendant and a Sephora 30 color eye-shadow palette. But this list is just a lot of things I don’t need (I do need an Evenstar pendant, you know) but think are adorable and worth staring at for a few minutes. And a few things I think are too funny not to share.
(I would also like to note that I currently have a Cubs Christmas tree ornament. It’s a little snowman, with a Cubs logo on his front, came straight from Chicago. Very sweet, but I’m not a Cubs fan. So it’s on my dresser. Sort of hidden.)
Texas Rangers L-O-V-E T-shirt by Majestic Athletic
I’m not usually into using something other than a team color to make a shirt more feminine, as I discussed here, but this one is just so adorable. The pink makes sense, here.
San Francisco Giants Women’s “Get on Board” T-shirt
Aside from the giant faux-pas of using a font that is/resembles Curlz MT, which is almost as overused as Comic Sans (have I mentioned that I am a font geek?), I want this shirt now. It’s unique and has a San Francisco flare which I love.
Ask Barry T-shirt
Back in the day, the story goes, Barry Zito and Barry Bonds had lockers next to each other and at Spring Training one year, they wore these t-shirts. “Don’t Ask Me, Ask Barry” is a great way to answer people. And an even better way to answer people is to, you know, point at your shirt. So I want one.
Tickets to the Giants vs. Brewers (@ SF) games, July 22nd, 23rd, 24th
Price depending on how generous the giver is.
I luv u, Ryan Braun. ‘Nuff said.
San Francisco Giants Dangle Earrings
If someone gave these to me, I might actually take out my snowflake earrings for a day during Snowflake Earring Season. Might.
Boelter San Francisco Giants Personalized Bowl
a. I will not pay 39.99 for a bowl. b. Does it come with pretzels? c. PERSONALIZED BOWL? Not cool, darling people. Not cool.
Pangea Texas Rangers ProToast Toaster
How do they come up with these things? And I’m taking votes: who thinks they made a piece of toast with the “T” on it and who they thinks they just Photoshopped it in? And why do they sell a Rangers toaster and not a Giants one? Do they think people in Texas eat more toast? Or people in San Fran are all on non-wheat diets?
So who went shopping this Friday and did you find anything incredible? And what’s on your holiday wish list this year?
Will report on Day Two in Snowflake Earrings.
p.s. Apologies for the oddness in the font, bolds etc. MLBlogs is being a little weird. I will try to fix it again later.
