What is That Burning Orb in the Sky?

After throwing myself into a couple What I Wore Sunday posts early in the fall, temperatures dipped below fifty, meaning I couldn’t go outside and take nice pictures without being too dang cold or bundled up. And since the interior of my house might be, too, um “keeping it real”, I ditched the fashion shots…

{WIWS} From Posting on Week 105 to Mrs. Worldwide!

It’s baaaaaack! And the novelty has not worn off! ¬†Middle aged mom working it for the camera and linking up with the FLAPers on week one oh five! I’d like to blame my trashed house on poltergeist but, I’ll just have to ‘fess up to spending all my time on Halloween costumes last week. So…

I’m Not Wearing A Dirndl

It’s another episode of What I Wore Sunday, combined with a lackluster summary of our weekend. I didn’t want to bore you on Friday with seven low lights from our week, so you’ll have to take what you can get here. Let the potporri begin! First, the high fashion you’ve come to expect. Dress: Goodwill…

Still Running In Circles

Does anyone care what I wore yesterday at this point? But, I forced my husband to take pictures so, for his sake, I’m getting this post up. I was prevented from doing so yesterday since, you know, church and practically everyone in my house relapsing to Cyclosporiasis! Here’s me freaking out: And now “the nice…

Too Much Sauciness

Taking a break from the ratty t-shirt, smelly sneaker combo to bring you another episode of What I Wore Sunday chock full of sauciness and splatterings of tomato. Shirt: Old Navy Tank: Old Navy Skirt: Target Stockpot: Gift, probably purchased at Ollie’s, which currently has a layer of blackened tomatoes firmly cemented to the bottom….

There Is No Silver Lining

I almost didn’t make it back to blogging. I was this close to having a mental breakdown and going all “yellow wallpaper” on everybody. On Friday, after four days at the beach, I got the phone call I was waiting for; lab results! But when our pediatrician nonchalantly¬†announced that none of the samples were tested…

Returns And Escapes

She’s back, she’s back!!! And for the record, she would like it known that she did not miss me at all. Which is fine, fine. I’m glad she fully enjoyed camp with only a minor recurrence of symptoms and didn’t miss us at all. It’s not like I was here, covered with poop, wishing for…

Aiming High While Spirits Are Low

The only members of my family holding down their food following Saturday’s Vigil Mass. Skirt, shirt: Burlington Coat Factory Doing Mass in shifts this weekend due to a nasty stomach bug. First Byron fell victim, then Tony, Addie, Teddy, Edie and finally Fulton. I’m the last one still standing. Since Fulton has a specialist’s appointment…

My Husband Hates Haute Couture

When my husband met me, I was dying my hair every color of the rainbow and regularly wearing¬†over-sized¬†men’s pants with XL black or tie-dyed t-shirts. You’d think that by now he’d understand my unique sense of style and adjust his expectations accordingly. You’d think he’d just be grateful I’m not still stuck in the 90’s…

No Actual Photographic Evidence Remains

I’m going to be upfront and honest. I don’t have a picture of what I wore to Mass. It was a long day that started too early and is ending too late. BUT, the good news is, I did capture ‘the essence’ of my outfit. Skirt: Target (Last seen here.) Red ruffled shirt: Old Navy…

Backless Sweaters? One More Reason I Won’t Ever Be Fashionable

It’s the What I Wore Sunday Monday fun day post! I had so much fun putting off my Quick Takes, I thought I’d let my hot style simmer until today knowing full well that my readers understand I’m lazy no matter what I write. SUNDAY MONDAY FUN DAY! I’m also really tired so that might…

It’s My Special Day

Who else woke up cursing the time change? Not Teddy of course. He was so excited to lose another hour of sleep he was up all night screaming about it and still managed to rise at 6 a.m. with that big cute smile that saves him every time. What better way to hide the fact…

Veiling At Mass: How To Give It A Try

To veil or not to veil; that is the question…..that I am not touching with a 10 foot pole. I’ll let you decide for yourself whether you feel compelled to veil, a.k.a wear a head covering at Mass, or not. Maybe you’re considering doing so for Lent and are uncertain of how to proceed. Maybe…
