What I'm Wearing

I think I mentioned a few posts ago that I've been trying to get dressed everyday. Haha, How's that for the start of a post!? But seriously... working at home it's so easy to get caught up in just staying in "comfy" clothes all day. I started to get really down and very unproductive. Getting dressed in real clothes does wonders for my mood and really boosts my productivity. As you can see from the pictures I don't always go so far as to actually put on makeup but hey, it's a start. And shoes? Forget about it, unless I actually go somewhere!

I adore this dress. It's so floaty and comfy and it fits me absolutely perfectly. No need for undergarments that squish in the flab with this one! I scored this teal beauty at the thrift store,practically new, for $1! Yes, you read that right ONE DOLLAR! Woot! I've discovered that one of my favorite thrift stores has a special deal every Friday at 6PM where you can get 5 pieces of clothing for $5. How cool is that!? I'm thinking this Friday I'll bring my husband along and we'll make a date out of it. The butterfly pin is one of my favorites and was also thrifted. It just adds a little special something to an outfit.

The past few weeks have been so stressful with full-time work, I feel like I just can't get a break. The proverbial "shit" just keeps piling up and up. This morning our air conditioner repair-man let us know that we need an entire new unit. Ugh. So we'll be muddling through the summer with our window units while we save the money for that giant bill. Our city recycling program is so excellent that we just have to set out our glass in buckets at the curb. This morning some yahoo drove by and stole all of our glass for the deposit money, which I would have been ok with but he stole our buckets too! Seriously, who does that!? Ok, enough whining for today. Time to move ahead and get stuff done so I can enjoy my long Memorial Day weekend! Although I'd love to throw on my disguise and hide out for a bit.

Just stopping by...

To say "Hello"! I'm still alive. My full time job is sucking up all of my time at the moment which is why I've been scarce around these parts lately. I've got a marvelous FIVE day weekend ahead of me so I'm planning on playing catch up and spending more time with you my crafty internet friends. I've got lots of new things to share this week and a HUGE giveaway / surprise to share on Wednesday.

In the meantime there's a brand spankin' new print in the shop!
