Fall is for Fashion

Fall is for Fashion

Fall is my favorite season.  I live in Connecticut all year long just so I can spend fall here.  I love when the air gets crisp and when fall flowers come into season. And I love fall fashion, too.  Like these lovely new shoes that I bought this weekend at Target.  Adorable! But what I do NOT love about fall is the transition into fall.  Those first few weeks when the weather is cool then warm then cool then warm.  And I don’t know whose I idea it was to…

More Confessions Than You Ever Wanted…

More Confessions Than You Ever Wanted…

Boy do I have news for you that proves there are people walking around out there with terrible judgment.   I have been asked to become a contributing blogger on Capessa.com, a women’s website that boasts “True Women, True Advice.”   Isn’t that a hoot and a half?   While I am so appreciative and am loving my new home over at Capessa, I have to admit, I questioned the nice Capessa Ladies mentality at first.   Its that whole, “I don’t want to be part of a country club…

To Perfume or Not to Perfume

To Perfume or Not to Perfume

Its fall.   That means its time to change your shoes, put away your white (I don’t care what region of the country you live in, white is unacceptable after Labor Day…unless its winter white or in any form of cashmere, and then we need to talk), cover up your legs, and break out the coats.   One thing I do when the seasons change is change my perfume, too.   So its time for me to put away my floral aroma that is Happy by Clinique and dust off…

Payday

Payday

Today, birds are chirping.   Angels are singing.   The sun is shining.   And is that a rainbow, I see?   It could be because….   IT’S PAYDAY! I don’t know if everyone gets this excited about paydays, or if its just me, but paydays are awesome.   I think this comes from the fact that for three years, Chris and I lived off of one paycheck while we were both in graduate school.   And that one paycheck?   It only came once a month.   But then,…

Ode to A Cat I Didn’t Even Like

Ode to A Cat I Didn’t Even Like

My mom called me this morning and told me they had to put my childhood cat down yesterday afternoon.   It wasn’t an unexpected call – Prince was 17 years old – but it was a sad call.   Truth be told, I didn’t really like Prince.   In 17 years, we just never warmed up to eachother.   When I was younger, I think it was because my sister was his main squeeze and I was just an afterthought.   And then when I was older, every time I…

Got Gas?

Got Gas?

Moving.  Its the gift that keeps on giving.  Months after you think you’ve finished, it rears its ugly head and reminds you that you are but a pawn in this moving game. This morning I woke up early to go to church.  I hadn’t bathed since Friday (I’m gross, lets move past it…), and while I know that the Lord will take me in any state of cleanliness He can get me, I felt that my pew-mates may not feel the same.  So, I’m standing in the bathroom waiting for…

The Worst Date Night Ever

The Worst Date Night Ever

This week I have been spending my evenings propped up in front of the television, taking my temperature and downing cold pills like candy.   The highlight of my nights have been trips to the bathroom.   So when I had one brief moment of clarity in between rounds of medication, I realized that yesterday was Friday night – date night, baby! Friday night for me and Chris is date night.   We don’t really plan it, and I don’t even think I reazlied it until just now, but Friday…

My (recent) Life in Pictures

My (recent) Life in Pictures

For several months now I have been without pictures.   I lost the cord that connects my camera to my computer.   I thought I’d take a few minutes to visually share some of the things in my recent life.   Some of them I have blogged about and if you click the links you’ll get the whole story.   And some of them are just random pictures I thought you’d like to see.   Here we go… These are pictures of my dogs trying to escape out of our…

Can You Die From a Cold?

Can You Die From a Cold?

That is my question of the day.   Can you die from a cold?   And my answer today would be yes.   Yes, you can die from a cold.   And how do I know this?   Because I am dying a slow, horrible death from a cold right now.   And there is nothing I hate more in this world than a cold.   I would rather have a broken leg.   With a broken leg, you are clearly incapacitated.   No one expects you to do things…
