Good morning everyone. I hope you have a cup of coffee and are ready to start your day. I am still feeling a little under the weather, so today’s blog will be very short and sweet. I have had a nasty cough for a couple of weeks, and it doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon. It has kept me awake at night, and poor Joe has even threatened to kick me out of the bedroom because he can’t sleep with me coughing either. I keep cough drops under my pillow so that I can pop one in if I start coughing badly (I am careful not to get choked on one), but they have not stopped the coughing.
I broke down and went to the doctor on Friday, and the good thing was that I don’t have pneumonia or anything like that. But, they did put me on antibiotics because the throat had blisters and the cough seems to be getting worse instead of getting better. They gave me some cough syrup to take at night, and they cautioned that it might make me tired. I was hoping that it made me drowsy enough that I could sleep through the night. I asked for homemade cough syrup recipes on my FaceBook, and I ended up concocting something from Crown Royal, (what Joe had on hand) half of a lemon, and some honey to sweeten the brew. I heated it and drank that. Then, I also took a dose of Nyquil, and I slept almost the whole night long. Joe was so happy when he woke up that “he” had gotten sleep. I don’t think that he was a bit concerned that “I” had been sleep deprived. Lol! He has a coffee cup that says, “it’s all about me,” and there is a reason that someone bought that for him. Hahaha
I have worn everything in this post before, but a little differently. That is the beauty of shopping your closet. The crossover hem sweater is so flattering with its wrap-around hemline. The gold color has already sold out, but it is still available in black. And, it is on sale for just a little over 15.00. I am ordering the black right now because I will be able to wear it all year round. This sweater that I have on is large, but I am going to order the black in a medium. I feel like this one is a tiny bit too big on me. Here is the link, and here is where I wore this top recently.
I added leopard to my look today. The Frankie magnetic bracelet has just a touch of leopard and several other strands of different beads and tassels. The matching leopard earrings and necklace are the Charleen, and the Rosalynn. I have already worn both of these items several times this summer, and I expect to wear them even more now that it is getting close to fall.
My olive green Bermuda shorts are from the Loft Outlet also. Usually, when I wear these shorts, I roll the hem up in a cuff, but today I let them stay long so that you could get an idea of how long they are. The Bermuda short is excellent for ladies who don’t want to show a lot of leg, but still want to be cool in the summer. These are also on sale, and here is the link to the shorts. BTW, I am wearing my usual size 10. I probably could have sized down, but I would rather something be a little big on me as too tight.
I was so happy last night that I got to talk to two blog readers, Karen and Kelly. They were both interested in hearing more about Rodan + Fields, and what the business could do for them. Will they end up joining me? I don’t know, but at least now they have the information to make an informed decision. Email me at email@example.com if you want to know more. You know me, I’ll be honest about the fun stuff and the hard stuff. Nothing in life comes easy; you do have to work for what you get.
