what i wore.... cowl neck & fabric poesy

Today, the day before Thanksgiving vacation, I decided to think outside of the box and come up with a more creative outfit.

I no sooner set my things down to get a cup of coffee at the office and I was already getting compliments!  I love where I work because people notice new a different things and they always are willing to shell out a compliment, when it's due.

So, my outfit isn't really anything special, except for a few accent pieces.

Here's the look:

Jeans: Ann Taylor Loft
Top: (orange) Ann Taylor Loft, (white) Target
Cowl Neck: Pam Logan, a crafty lady at a craft show
Poesy Pin: Erin @ Four Munkees
Boots: Nine West

I've rolled my skinnier legged jeans from Ann Taylor Loft over top of my tall brown boots.  This look, my husband would say makes me look like a pirate but I thought it was cute so I just went with it.

This morning when piecing this outfit together, I thought with the cowl neck being a little bit of an off-white color and the pin having a bit of orange in it I needed something that would tie it all together and not clash.  So I went with the orange over the white and then added the two fabulous accents.

Here's a closer look:

The cowl neck was a STEAL from Pam.  She's just a handy lady that can crochet like a champ!  She sells these cowl necks for $5.00 a piece!  I'm not kidding!  If you look them up on etsy, they are anywhere from $30 to $75+ dollars!  It's nuts!  I almost bought some from etsy before I met Pam.  I'm going to work with Pam to make a few Christmas gifts because these things are just so darn handy and so pretty!!  I need a few more colors myself.

The Posey Pin, as I'm calling it... is from my friend Erin at Four Munkees.  She's just got that look that ALWAYS is so cute!  She was at a local artisan show recently where I finally got to witness her craftiness in person!  It was great!  She had little smock like dresses for little girls, owls, rings, earrings, bracelets, poesy pins, munkees and seek and find bag.  So many cute things.  I tried very hard to not buy one of each but what I did buy, I'm loving.  My posey pin is just the perfect accent for many different outfits and I'm very happy that I made that purchase.

Anyway, that's my outfit for today.  Hope you enjoyed it.

Have a happy, healthy and safe turkey day!!

Gobble, Gobble.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
