My youngest son asked me if I could babysit Emersyn for him and Kayla for a couple of hours this afternoon. Kayla had an appointment to get her hair fixed and Joseph couldn’t take off work. After he twisted my arm for a long, long time, I finally agreed. Lol!
You all know that I love watching Emersyn, she is a ball of energy. Normally when Emersyn sees me she comes running and yelling, “can we go to your house NeeNee?” She loves to come to my house, although I can’t figure out exactly why. I am sure that it has nothing to do with the fact that we play with play-doh, eat ice cream, and dance around the house. Haha! However, today she was not having any of it. She took one look at me and started screaming, “NOOOOO! I want to stay with my mommy!” Kayla confirmed my suspicion that she hadn’t had a nap. Kayla eventually left and I had a crying toddler on my hands. So I did what all NeeNee’s would do. I loaded her in my vehicle, turned on the DVD player, and drove around town acting like I was looking for her mommy. It took all of about 5 minutes for her to fall asleep, but I ended up driving around town for an hour and a half till she woke up. I was not about to wake that child up before she got her nap out. All at once she woke up and started chattering away and all was good with the world. A quick trip to McDonald’s and back to my house. Lol! I know you have heard me say before that I love Christmas. This year I am struggling to get in the spirit because I am busy, the kids are all grown, and Ashleigh will not be able to come for Christmas this year. I haven’t put up on single decoration yet and I am threatening not to even put up a tree. This is the same person who used to put up a tree in EVERY room of the house. So, I bought this Santa scarf to try to lift my Christmas spirit out of the doldrums. I don’t do the ugly Christmas sweaters anymore, I like this more subtle way of saying it is the Christmas season.
My scarf is my necklace, so I only added a couple of bracelets to finish the look. You might have noticed that I have worn these same bracelets a lot here lately. Yes, I do like these bracelets, but that is not the reason. I took all my jewelry to the craft fair I helped with a couple weekends ago because I set up to sell Plunder and I still haven’t unpacked all my stuff. With all the Thanksgiving festivities going on I just haven’t even gotten it out of the car. I promise I will unpack soon. Haha I absolutely love this purse but you would never know that. I have had this purse for 3 or 4 years, maybe even more, but I have never carried it at all. In fact, I had to cut the tags off of it before I could put my stuff in it. At least I know where it came from since it still had the tags attached, Cracker Barrel. I paid a whole 29.99, can you believe that?
You might have noticed this was the same top and bottom that I wore with my Metrostyle coat yesterday. I wasn’t planning on wearing that coat to work at the lumber company, so I decided to restyle the outfit for you. I added this little red jacket from Cato’s that I bought last year. This is a shorter jacket than I usually wear and it is a one button closure. This one from Cato’s is similar, but not exact.
I have on a short sleeve black knit top which is also from Cato’s, but here is a long sleeve version that looks very similar.
And now for my black Palazzo pants. I bought them at a little boutique up the road from me, and she had then in several solid colors. I never knew they were hard to find. I like the Palazzo pants, they are so comfortable to wear and they look really elegant.
