Big Rain Drops...

..... require some big'ol rain boots.

We're going to a wedding in April in Vermont and from what I understand, it's supposed to be "mud season" up there during that time.  I don't know what means exactly, so what I envision is just mud and slosh everywhere.  So in order to prepare, I decided that I need to bring a pair of rain boots with me.

I didn't have a pair and while I would like a pair, I haven't purchased them yet.  I was talking to my sister and she said that she had two pairs that she was going to be getting rid of, so for me, it was perfect timing!  I went and picked them up from her yesterday and today, we have big'ol rain drops! 

So this morning, I pieced together some items that would match with my boots and I'm sporting them proudly today, even though my husband wasn't really a fan, this morning...

So far, they seem to be a hit in the office with just about everyone!  I like to think that they are complimenting me on them because they actually look cute and not because I look like a fool, but you can never be too sure...

Anyway, now I have to plan my wedding attire around these boots so I can make them work while we're up there!!

Oh and one more thing.  Yes, I can wear jeans to work.  In fact, I can wear them any day that I want and the rain boots... sure!  I could wear flips daily too.  No one would care, just as long as inappropriate things are covered up.  Shorts are okay too.

your hubby didn't approve?? I think you look SO CUTE! I also have a pain of ridiculous rain boots. mine have bulldogs on them (of course) but I can never seem too pair them up with an outfit quite as well as you have here. two thumbs up!

(and jealous about the jeans and flip flops, flip flops are a forbidden item at our office)

Cute! Its my personal opinion that husbands don't know much about fashion. Even though they may know what they find attractive.

Those are tooo cute! I agree with kaite beth that husband's don't know much about fashion, it seems lately any new stylish outfit i have bought, the hubs doesn't really care too much for. Good luck coordinating your wedding outfit!

Very cute! I also feel like husbands/boyfriends don't like the rainboot look but they also don't like it when we complain when we don't have on "sensible" footwear.

Sensible AND fashionable? Win/win sister.

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 …
