I had babysitting duty on Saturday with Emersyn. Her mother and father took her little brother, and they all drove 2-hours to go shopping. Emersyn doesn’t like shopping, so she chose to come to my house instead. It is cool that she prefers me over shopping. But, I know that when she gets older, I will NOT be her first choice. Lol! She wanted to go and eat (translation: get something from TCBY) and then go to Walmart to get a toy. So, I hopped in the shower while she was watching cartoons.
I had just lathered up my hair when she comes into the room and tells me that she found the Oatmeal Cakes that Joe had brought in the night before. She asked if she could have one, and I told her that she could either have the cookie or TCBY. Talk about a hard decision for her, she finally went and got a coin, and tossed it in the air to see which one she should do. She said the Oatmeal Cake was the winner, and off she ran. I was almost finished with my shower when she came back in and told me that she had been wrong, TCBY won. I said okay, and off she ran. I finished getting dressed, and we went to grab something to eat and then to head to Walmart. It was funny that after she ate she didn’t want to go to TCBY. When we got home, I asked her if she felt alright and she said that she did. I kept asking questions and told her that I was worried about her since she didn’t want TCBY after all. Here it comes…she had eaten the cookie and was planning on eating TCBY too. She played me, but it ended up backfiring on her. She was too full to go to TCBY, so she just got to have one treat. Lol! I laughed at her for the trick not working, and then I told her that we weren’t going to go the Dollar Store after church (our usual routine) since she had fibbed to me. Her little trick backfired on her. Hahaha!
I love this color blue. On the website, they call it Horizon Blue, so I guess they thought it was the color of the sky on the horizon. I am not that artistic; I call it medium blue or sky blue. But, no matter what you want to call this color, I think that it is beautiful. I bought this, and a few others, about a month ago at Old Navy. This has a crew neckline, long sleeves, and a rib-knit hemline and cuffs. This is machine washable, and I am wearing a size medium. I love wearing cardigans because I think that they help to create a waistline for me since I am shaped like a ruler. I have a photo later in this post that will show you the difference without the cardigan. Here is the link to the sweater, and it comes in several more colors.
I tried to keep my jewelry colorful. My shorts have so many different colors that I could have chosen a lot of different things. I added three bracelets from the Randee set. The bracelets are all on an elastic cord, making them easy to put on and take off. The long gold necklace is one that I have worn for a long time. I like it because it will go with anything, and I can grab it when I can’t find anything else to wear. It is the Vienna, and it reminds me of Ralph Lauren clothing. I think that the links in the necklace look like a bridle bit for a horse. I can’t leave without talking about these cute multi-colored earrings. These are very lightweight, and they feature every color under the sun. Lol! I can’t remember where I bought these; I think it was from Versona.
See, I told you that I am built like a ruler. I have no curves at all, so the cardigan gives me the illusion of curves. These shorts got the Joe approval stamp. Lol! I had someone request that I do a post on a paper bag waist ( or a ruffled waist) in shorts. I found this pair, and I fell in love with all of the colors. This is by eci New York, and they feature a 6.5″ inseam. These have a drawstring waist and are machine washable. I am wearing a size medium for sizing reference. Here is the link to the shorts.
Y’all, how is this my life? I need to pick a destination trip so that Joe Stephens and I can go and be pampered by Rodan + Fields. But, I am so torn, and I feel like the squirrel ? (or in this case, chipmunk) trying to cross the road. I keep going back and forth between Banff Canada or New York. The deadline to make my decision is swiftly approaching, and I need HELP!!!
PS: Banff is beautiful and cold, and that is where my daughter wants to go, and New York has always been on my bucket list to go around Christmas time and see the Christmas tree and all of the window displays. And, now Joe has chimed in and says that he wants to go to Miami. Plus, everybody keeps telling me to pick Sedona that it is beautiful! Help me out by commenting on your choice, especially if you have visited any of these places.
