date night


I trust that you all had a Happy Thanksgiving! Ours was delightful but a bit delayed. My husband had to work on Thanksgiving(apparently computers aren't aware that it's a rude!)so we don't have dinner until he gets home at 8. This means I don't have to get up at the crack of dawn to get the bird in the oven. It also means that by the time he pulls his car into the garage I'm nearly ready to chew my arm off! That being said, turkey was eaten, wine was sipped and we got to face time for a bit with the baby girl in Florida:)

I've slowly emerged from my food coma. Having finally convinced myself that pie is not actually suitable for breakfast every single day, I'm getting dressed again. The only thing remarkable about this outfit is that I managed to wear it all day. Since the time change, does anyone else find themselves in pajamas at 5 o'clock or is it just me? Damn you Daylight Savings Time!  Since I was all dressed like a proper adult I decided to treat the husband to $5 movie night. We saw Argo. It was so, so good, like people cheered and clapped at the end good.  So add that one to your "must see before the Oscars" list. I'm going to try to fit in Lincoln and The Perks of Being a Wallflower in the next week. Do you have any good movie recommendations?

you're my inspiration


I wish I could take credit for this outfit, but I can't. I saw this outfit on the lovely Shan and ran to Target to see if I could find this dope sweater. It was only after I uploaded these pictures that I realized that this entire outfit is from Tar-jay. Well played, Target, well played! And thanks Shan for letting me steal your entire look inspiring me;)

Lately, I've been in a bit of a rut. Wedding season is pretty much over and I have a few things lined up here and there, but with no big project to obsess over, I'm feeling a little bit lost. The fact that I work at home and I'm alone, a lot, doesn't help. I'm spending more of my work days in jeans, one of my husband's old t-shirts and a grubby(but sooo comfortable)old sweater- not exactly presentable or fashionable. In an effort to stave off my one person pity party, I actually got dressed! It helped...a little.

 If you stuck around for my self indulgent venting, thank you:) Happy Tuesday!

a whiter shade of pale

I seem to have developed an addiction to printed jeans. I'm sure that if you told me last year that I wouldn't mind encasing my bottom half in leopard print, red floral denim or in this case ivory and lavender ikat print I would have called you cray-cray!! I've decided that a fun print adds a little somethin' somethin' to what has become my everyday uniform- jeans, a blouse and a sweater-yawn.  

I'm nursing my election hangover and trying to figure out if I can successfully wean myself from the nonstop political news that's been the soundtrack at our house for the last few months!
