So, I’ve been playing some over the weekend with the blog. I feel like I have been kind of stuck in a rut because it was easy. I knew that it was time for a change and a facelift but I hate the learning curve associated with learning a new theme. This all started because I decided to change the colors on the website. As you can see, even though I changed the theme I still have the same colors. LOL! I think it has something to do with being set in my ways. I am not one that HATES change but I am one that is unsure what changes to make. I know in my mind the direction I want to head but I can’t get it out of my head and on to the screen. I get frustrated when it takes me longer to get something done right so I will settle for “good enough.” I don’t want my blog website to only be good enough, I want it to be perfect. And if it can’t be perfect, then I want it to be practically perfect in every way. Lol! I am just too impatient when it comes to change. I want the result without the wait. I am pretty sure that I am not alone in this boat. It is like going into a store and just wanting the outfit that is on the mannequin instead of having to pick out all of the pieces individually. Can I see a show of hands???
Yesterday was Super Bowl Sunday. Yes, I did watch most of the game. When I get bored I just pull out my laptop and work. What do you wear to watch a football game? In my case, it was jeans, a t-shirt, and a gift from my Energizer Bunny Friend which was nice, warm, and snuggly. This cowlneck sweater jacket is by Danskin and she purchased it at our local Walmart. Then she took it and had it embroidered for me. I love it!!! This is a great gift and one that didn’t break the bank. This comes in 4 different colors, she had one on when we were in Georgia that was in the tan color. A sweater/jacket like this is perfect for when you would like some extra warmth but you don’t need a heavy coat.
I am wearing all of my Valentine Day jewelry that I purchased from Plunder. I LOVE the red earrings!!! I know both of my DIL’s will love these so I bought extras so that I could give them each one. I hope that you bought the Valentine jewelry when it was available because I just looked at it is all SOLD OUT!. I am not surprised, it was so cute and it was so affordable! Be sure to check the “Specials” when you are on the Plunder website. They post new items all the time. My Plunder website is plunderdesign.com/taniastephens and then you pick a party from the drop-down menu.
I don’t think you have to dress all from one store, style, or price point. The sweater/jacket is from Walmart and my espadrille shoes are by Chanel. Talk about opposite ends of the spectrum!!! The great thing is that BOTH of them were a gift to me so either was they cost me ZERO dollars. Hahaha!!! It might be a different story if I was trying to sell one of them. I know which one I would choose. Unless you want to pay over 1,000.00 for a pair of shoes I am not going to bother finding a link for these. (You can email me if you want a link) However, you can easily recreate this look and I will link to some options below.
Here is the back view. I wanted to show you that the sweater/jacket dips down in the back to cover your behind. The Rockstar jeans have been a favorite of mine for some time, I wear them quite often. I ordered these in tall so they are really long. I can roll up the hem when I want to make them shorter either once or twice. They are perfect for making the HUGE cuff that you sometimes see.I appreciate everyone commenting a telling your stories of heart issues. I am glad that you survived to tell all of us the symptoms. There is not one thing to be on the lookout for, there were multiple issues. The bottom line is if it doesn’t feel right then have it checked out. If it is not a heart attack then the worst you did was get a doctors bill. The winner of the Valentine HEART bracelet is Laura Tuck. Congratulations!!!I haven’t decided what Joe is going to get me yet for Valentine’s Day. Lol!!! I’ll be sure to let you know when I finally decide. If you would like R+F as YOUR valentine present then you need to tell your hubby to get in touch with me. As a Valentine gift from me, from now until midnight on February 14th I will be gifting a body moisturizing lotion or a sunless tanner to EVERY order placed as a Preferred Customer.
