One Skirt.....Three Days....Day Three!

Last day! Kind of sad, but mostly happy, I've grown to like this skirt a bit more, but I still prefer my fuller skirts, much easier to sit and do things in modestly!!
Shirt: JcPenny, Belt: ShopKo, Skirt: Made by me

 Yet another somewhat awkward attempt at a detail does get them all in and plus it shows of the red lipstain I got yesterday!
Bracelet: ShopKo, Earrings: ShopKo, Necklace: Premier Designs, Lip Stain: Revlon Just Bitten in Gothic(I know, what  a lovely name, right?)

Shoes: Payless 

This is what happens when you are tired of smiling and.....well.....I guess there really is no decent explanation..... except if you are as random as me.....and have no real shame about posting pics of yourself on the internet! ;-)
It's a public service really.....I can't have to world feeling bad about themselves because they think I'm perfect and gorgeous all the time now can I? ;-)

One Skirt.....Three Days.....Day Two!

In wearing and taking pictures of this skirt I'm beginning to realize WHY I only wore it a few times before.....
Cardigan: Kohls, Skirt: Kohls, Cami: JcPenny, Skirt: Made by me, Shoes: Target

 Bracelet: ShopKo

Showing off the new colors of lipstain I bought today! Hopefully I'll be wearing the red tomorrow, but only after a test run tonight! After going to church with dark, dark, dark lips I realized a trial run of all new colors of something staining my lips for hours would be a good idea!
Earrings: Posh Patina

In other news.....

.....this good.....

....these very good.....
(But be forewarned, when she says they leak a little bit she is NOT kidding! Next experiment, had to know it would eventually go there, right?)

.....and this just makes me so happy.....

.....'cause he was the best Doctor in my opinion.....

.....unless of course this happens.....

.....then Doctor 9 might have some competition! ;-)

One Skirt.....Three Days.....Day One!

I chose a denim pencil skirt that I made and have never really worn. But, it was one I knew could take from warm to cold and from casual Friday, yard work Saturday to fancy-ish Sunday!

Shirt: Shop-Ko, Cami: JcPenny, Skirt: Made by me, Boots: Natualizer 

Earrings: Kohls, Bangles: Target and little sisters room when I cleaned it up (I did ask and they said I could have them!)

...and as a little bonus, I love Lady A and have discovered that they also have done a few songs as Lady Haze and write new versions of popular country songs! Like Cletus T, without being Cletus T....and if you've ever listened to Cletus you'll know EXACTLY what I'm talking about! ;-)

What is Wrong With You.....

Another hilarious video by Lizzie Bennett! There is some language in this one, so make sure that your little pitchers.....wait or is it corn.....or maybe the saying about them having big ears.....or something.....never mind.....this ones for the older folks! ;-)

Take a Pin to a Heart Shaped Balloon.....

Have had this song stuck in my head.....I have to admit to strongly identifying with his sentiments...ah, seems springtime is a time for love and engagements.....for everyone else besides me....
Okay, pity party over, I promise! =P 

I love Hunter Hayes and marvel at how much he sounds like the lead singer from Rascal Flatts!

I for one am a BIG fan of the colorful jean craze and was excited to find some that weren't skinny (which does NOT create a good line for me, unless of course ice-cream cone becomes a desirable silhouette!) and will fit all of my "trunk junk" as it were! =)

Shirt: Kohls, Cami: JcPenny, Purple jeans: Women Within, Necklace: JcPenny

Ah yes, the shorts that started it all! A VBS drama that called for a bayou costume led me to Goodwill looking for some jeans I could cut off into clam diggers. I hadn't worn pants for years for a varity of reasons, for spiritual and some not so spiritual reasons, but that has already been covered HERE.
I found these babies for $3 and they became a summer staple! They were roomy enough in the hips and booty but then magically fit in the waist! I looked the brand up and now they are my one and only brand of jeans I can get to fit right! 
Not that they haven't changed their name.....causing this curvy girl to panic, but obviously, I found them again! =)
Cardigan: JcPenny, Cami: JcPenny, Shorts Venizia brand via Goodwill

 I recently discovered my new favorite Esty shop, PoshPatina and have worn the earrings I ordered from her a lot. Her prices are fabulous and the quality of the pieces is wonderful! (She is on vacation right now, but you should defintily check out her stuff when she gets back!)
Bow: PayLess, Earrings: Etsy, Necklace: Wal-Mart

A close up of the shoes, because they are awesome! Who doesn't love a sequined toe? Well besides my little sister Becca....she thinks sequins look, how shall we only something a lady of ill repute would wear.....I can't say that I agree, I love me some sparkles!! =)

My Mom and I fell in love with a skittles manicure on the JcPenny ad in the Sunday paper a week before Easter, between my collection and and few new colors my Mom bought we managed to have enough pastely cremes to do each toe a different color. I've had mine since Easter and LOVE it!

Yes, Another One.....

Come May 1st I will once again be attempting a photo a day challenge...what can I say, I'm a glutton for feeling bad about myself when I bag out after day 3.....
...I will finish it, I will! =)

Awkward and Awesome

~ Awkward ~

~Getting the mail and hearing a honk behind you.....ignoring said honk..... because you always look and wave and they were never honking at you.....then just as you bend over to get a package a strong breeze picks up.....full skirt flys are eternally grateful you are wearing tights.....and as every drop of blood in your body heads for your face and you clutch at the back of your skirt the honking happens turn and look.....and see a man from your church waving at you.....erm, yeah, hi Mr. Hess.....


~Someone (besides me) noticed I've been losing weight and said I looked good!!!!!!!!!! Makes the running a tad bit easier I will admit! =)

~Costco had chocolate drizzled, chocolate chunk, vanilla muffins....there goes awesome number one! But oh, what a way to go! =P

~I am wearing a sun dress and flip flops and am not freezing my buns off, yeah!

~In other weather related awesomeness.....check out this weekends weather.....

Spring/Summer Bucket List

Saw this on Marie's Blog, thought I would steal her idea! These are things I know I can do before fall hits! At least they are things I can theoretically get done and back on track before fall to the actual completion and or doing of them might be another story entirely! ;-)

~The big and kind of all consuming one is moving 2,000 miles to Tennessee! 

~Run for 30 minutes without dying (I will do it, I will!)

~Host a blog giveaway/event

~Actually wear some the beautiful scarves I've collected (I always tank in the summer with them!)

~Start journaling the old fashioned way more. I used to be pretty faithful, but this darn digital age has made me become lazy and lax in the pen to paper journaling department!

~Read War and Peace.....(Yeah, sure.....maybe the third times the charm!)

~Get back on track with my quiet time with God (sadly, it's been a bit hit and miss lately!)

~Organize the complete and utter mess that my recipe self has become!

~Finish a cross stitch project I've been working in for about 8 years now *shame* Not constantly for 8 years mind you, it's just one of those things I'll pick up and work on feverishly for a few weeks then lose steam and tuck away for another year.....I only have some outlining and embellishing left, so it shouldn't take more then a few weeks.....

In other news.....

.....cookies goooooood.....

...Grimm, also good.....

.....Monroe, VERY good..... ;-)

.....The Lizzie Bennett Diaries, amazingly funny! Posted the first one HERE!
