It sure is good to be back home again. I slept soooo good in my own bed. Although, the first night I was back from visiting my sister I did not sleep in my bed but instead slept in one of the other bedrooms. No, Joe did not lock me out of the bedroom, instead, it was because Emersyn decided that she wanted to spend the night with me. She and I always sleep in Ashleigh’s old room because little Miss thang kicks and she wakes up the sleeping bear (aka Joe.) Because her parents live right next door she is bad to want to go back home when it is time to go to sleep. She knows that it is easy to walk back home but this time I wasn’t having it. I told her that they had already gone to sleep and she needed to close her eyes. Then she told me to try and call them or at least to text them. I said, “Nope, you wanted to spend the night and you are going to spend the night.” There might have been a few tears but she soon started watching a video and before long she was out like a rock. My night wasn’t quite as good but it had nothing to do with her, she was an angel. Joe installed some outside lights around the pool to light up the place at night and boy did it ever! It looked like daylight all night long and I kept waking up to see what time it was. Lol! We sleep on the other side of the house so the lights never bother us. I may need to buy some blackout curtains for the other bedrooms if we ever want our company to be able to sleep. Ashleigh would feel right at home since it never seems to get completely dark in Alaska. I wore a maxi dress last week that was like this but a different color. Several of you mentioned that since you were Petite that you couldn’t wear a maxi dress but I am here to tell you otherwise. Petite women can wear maxi dresses but you have to do things a little differently. 1. Buy the dress in the petite section so the length is correct. 2. Pick a solid or a smaller print like this one. You always want to pick a print that is in proportion to your body. 3. A platform shoe will help to make you appear taller. 4. A dress with an empire waist will make you appear taller. See, easy – peasy! This one is by Everly and runs true to size. It has a halter style neckline and a fabric tie belt. You could choose to let it flow without a belt or belt it down with a belt of your own.
Today’s necklace and earrings are a set that is this month’s Plunder Posse. There is nothing like waiting until the last minute to show you the special. Lol! The Posse is a subscription service where you get 1 to 3 pieces of jewelry each month for the flat rate of 25.00 which includes taxes and shipping. It is a wonderful deal! Plus, there is no sign on fee and no cancellation fee and that makes it even better. I added the Mary Ellen, the Ramona, and the Morgan bracelets. If you wish to make a purchase then go to www.plunderdesign.com/taniastephens and pick a party in my name. I added this cornflower blue crochet vest that I bought at Cato’s the other day on the sale rack. I do not have a lot of vests but I loved the color of this one and I thought it matched the floral design in the dress great. By adding the longer vest it also makes you look taller. I also like it because it hides my sides from your view which helps me to appear thinner. Long and lean is something I strive for in my outfits. Lol!
