When Nightmares Come True

You know that horrible nightmare where your husband comes home with home decor that he would like to hang around the house? Well, that nightmare came to life for me.

Normally, I like the hubby’s taste in decoration. We even had a conversation the other day about how we want our house to have a country/garden feel to it (right now it’s a little more on the western side). Then the hubby comes home with “treasures” (his words not mine). He “scored” five pieces of “artwork” from a coworker for free. You can’t pass up a deal like that, right? Well, you can when the artwork is framed pictures of ducks, wolves, deer, ect. I hate it! I told the hubby, there’s a reason his coworker had to get rid of the “artwork” and that reason  is that he just got married and his wife doesn’t want it in her house. So why would I want it in mine?! The pictures definitely don’t fit in the country/garden theme. Goodness gracious…men!

Take Me Out To The Ball Game

Wearing this tee makes me feel the need to go to a baseball game. First, I just need to find a team whose colors are pink and sparkle and I’ll be their biggest fan. I’d cheer them on at all their games. I also need to get some knowledge on how the game is played so I know what I’m cheering for. But really how important is it to know the rules to the game? I know all the words to baseballs theme song “take me out to the ball game” and I have a baseball tee so I think I’ve got the main things covered.

Sister Perks

What is one of the perks to having a sister (other than having a best friend for life)? Getting to share clothes, of course! I stole (well, borrowed but I plan on never giving them back) five skirts from my sister last weekend. And this skirt happens to be one of them. Don’t you just love it? I’m trying to convince my sister that she should just give it to me but haven’t had much luck yet. I’m thinking that if everyone comments telling her that she needs to give it to me, she might give in to peer pressure. So come on, help a gal out and convince my sister that this skirt should be mine 🙂

You know how you have those days where you just can’t find anything to wear and wish you could just stay in your p.j.’s all day? Well, pretty much all of August and most of September is like that for me. I am just so over the heat and ready for fall. But mother nature hasn’t listened to me so far when I tell her fall should start on August 1st. So I have resorted to wearing clothes that feel like p.j.’s while I wait for fall to get here.

The winner of the of the Bubble Necklace Co. Giveaway is…Jamie Lee! Congrats girlie! Email me to claim your prize 🙂
