What I Wore Wednesday

Wow - It's already Wednesday.........

This week has just flown (is that a word?) by!!

It's the old cliche' - the older I get, the faster time goes by!!
When I was a kid or even as a young adult, I thought that was such an odd saying.
What does age have to do with how time goes by??

But young people - IT IS SO TRUE!!!!
The older you get, the faster time goes by.
Enjoy each and every day and don't take "time" for granted!!!

We've been doing some sprucing up around here for an upcoming cook-out,
so I've been in my painting clothes and yard working clothes most of the past week.

I did get dressed on Friday to run some errands.

striped long sleeve tshirt - gap
black tank - old navy
boyfriend jeans - gap
flip-flop sandals - born

And Monday, I went shopping...........

cropped jeans - vera wang - kohls
pink cardigan - old navy
white v neck tshirt - gap
necklace - premier
brown sandals - kohls
cap with flower - showplace market

I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration.

You should go check out the other blogs and see what all the cute ladies are wearing!!

Thanks Kileigh for reminding me to post today!!!

Have a wonderful week, my friends!!

Rain is a Good Thing!!

We finally got some much needed rain over the past two weeks!!

Oklahoma just experienced one of the worst spring droughts in history,
so needless to say, the rain was a welcomed sight!!!

It was perfect weather for staying home and wearing comfy clothes -
Not that I need a good excuse to stay home or wear my comfy clothes
but there is something very comforting about a slow, dreary rain
that makes snuggling up at home even better!!!!

Oh and The Lifetime and Hallmark Channels seem to be even better during a good, long dreary rain -
I'm just sayin'...........

It did wonders for our newly planted flowerbeds!!!

Watering the flower pots daily just doesn't have the same effect as a good rain!! 

Everything started blooming and looks really full and healthy now!!

Let's just see if I can keep it all alive for the duration of the summer!!

Rain is a good thing!!
So is Luke Bryan :) - He's a cutie!!

Hope you have a blessed Mother's Day weekend, my friends!!

What I Wore Wednesday - The Late Edition

Hey there!!

I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration.

This is the conclusion I have come to - 
Getting out of my comfy clothes everyday just isn't for me!
also - I might be part hermit!!

The sad part - I'm ok with it!
and The Man loves me anyway!

I hope I'm not breaking any "what I wore" rules by admitting this
and I really hope I don't get kicked out of the party
because I do love clothes and love to find cute outfits,
but just can't bring myself to get dressed-up each and everyday!!

I commend those that do!!

And I love checking out all the links to see what everyone else is wearing!

I did leave my house, officially, 3 times over the past week
(not counting taking my son to school and the quick trip to Lowes -that's where the comfy clothes come in)
so here's my wardrobe for those 3 outings!

Last Thursday, The Man took me to the Arts Festival in downtown Oklahoma City.
It was a gorgeous day - the weather was perfect!!!
boyfriend jeans - gap
white ruffled shirt - gap
black cardigan - old navy
black flats - target
necklace - gift from my friend/cousin Becky (thank you!!)
olive purse - target
aviator sunglasses - target

Sunday - dinner with the family to celebrate Chelsea's 21st birthday.
This is my youngest daughter - Chelsea.
Isn't she beautiful??!!!

me - skinny jeans - gap
black ruffled shirt - gap
black/white jacket - stein mart
floral necklace - kohls
rhinestone necklace - the loft
bronze flats - marshall's

The Man - don't know, but I think he looks great here and we match!!

Wednesday - lunch with my mom 
boyfriend jeans - gap
burn-out tshirt - ??
white tank - old navy
floral wedges - target
necklace - kohls
bracelets - walmart

The weather is supposed to be nice over the next week, so I'm hoping to break out
of my usual uniform (gap jeans and cardigan) and wear a dress!! What?????
I know - a dress??  A hermit in a dress??

We'll see................

Have a great evening my friends!!!
