A Little Off

(Shirt: Thrifted, Skirt: Thrifted, Boots: Candies via Kohls, Belt: Thrifted)

Ever have an off day or night? Yesterday was one for me. I mean work was fine and then last night I was just a little off. Maybe it was because I got home at almost 7 pm or maybe it was because Matt wasn't feeling the greatest. And I didn't sleep very well last night either. Who knows what it is going on!? Hopefully this evening and night will be better. Or maybe I am just going to have an off week.

Pies All Around

For Thanksgiving, my job was to make the pies. Of course I made the traditional pumpkin pie in homemade crust. Matt on the other hand wanted something a little different. His favorite is banana cream pie and it is something that his mom makes every year. So I made my first attempt at it but I don't think it turned out the greatest. Next time it needs to sit in the refrigerator longs or possibly use whipped cream instead of meringue. Here is what I made

Wow the weekend seemed to go by fast and slow at the same time. Thrusday thru Saturday flew by but  yesterday seemed to drag on, which is ok with me on any Sunday! This weekend I got most of my wedding invitations done and some other wedding things figured out. Wedding day is getting closer. Only 4 months from Wednesday and it will be here. Also, Matt and I put up the Christmas decorations up on Saturday and then yesterday we put up light on the house. Matt home=more lights on the house. I even had to run to the store to get more!

How was your Thanksgiving and the rest of your weekend? Did you put your Christmas decorations up yet?

Again, I am participating in Two Birds Inspiration Monday! I love Jessica Alba's simple chic style!

How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was pretty relaxed and full of wonderful food and family. We spent the afternoon over at my grandma's house where we watched football and played it. Today was pretty relaxed too with Matt and I heading to the movies to see "Jack and Jill," which was only okay. We didn't do any crazy Black Friday shopping and there was no getting up at 3 am. After the movie, I wasn't feeling too well so I came home and took a 2 hour nap which made me feel better. Hopefully some more sleep can make be feel better.

Thanksgiving Eve

It's almost time for Thanksgiving and this year I am working up till the last minute. I usually take the day before Thanksgiving off so that I can help get ready for family. But this year Thanksgiving is going to be a pretty low key time. We are planning on heading over to my grandma's house and hang out and eat some delicious food.

What are your plans for Thanksgiving? Heading out of town or staying close to home?

Having to take outfit picutres inside all the time is starting to frustrate me. I don't see a way I could take them outside in the dark. It's dark when I go to work in the morning and dark when I get home at night.The only solution I have at this point is take them in different places in my house until the weekend comes and I can actually take them outside.

But last night, while stopping by my parent's house, I mentioned that I wanted a tripod for Christmas for my camera. Just so happens that my mom says I think we have one that we got for free that you can have. She headed out to the garage and comes in with a dust covered box with a brand new tripod inside. She hands it to me and says "Merry Christmas! Glad I could get your Christmas present done early." Thanks mom!

Inspiration Monday

(Shirt and Jeans: Target, Boots: GoJane, Earrings: Maurices)

How was your weekend? Mine was great but went too fast. Maybe it is because this week is Thanksgiving week. My weekend was full of making wedding invitations and spending time with Matt (he was gone all last week for work). We also had to watch my parent's dog Sadie since they were out of town. It's a good thing that Oscar and Sadie get along and have plenty of fun together.

I am participating in Two Birds Inspiration Monday today. The inspiration today is Olivia Munn!

So last night I was watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 while I was crocheting in bed. Harry, Ron and Hermione get to Hogsmeade and meet up with Aberforth Dumbledore. Well I realized that one of my coworks reminds me of Aberforth with the way that he looks expect my coworker need a longer and fuller beard. I just kept laughing and thinking I can't wait to tell him (he is also a big Harry Potter fan). I told him this morning and he just laughed. He is such a good sport!

Looking Better

(Sweater and Jeans: Target, Shirt: SO, Boots: GoJane, Hat: Unknown Brand)

No it hasn't snowed again. I am just slacking on posts and have some from a couple of weeks ago that I need to add. I know yesterday I talked about wearing jeans and a hoodie and how un-dressed-up (is that a word?) I was. Well I have to tell you that this is much better than my look yesterday. And today I have completely changed my look and have nice clothes. I may look better but I don't feel better. I am feeling a little out of sorts today because my work day yesterday was so long and didn't have time to recooperate last night. Good thing the weekend is right around the corner and on day closer till Thanksgiving!

Old But Good

It's only 2:30! Awwww what a long day it has been and it is not even over yet. I have been in the field all morning and headed back there very soon. And I am not wearing this in the field today. I decided at 5 this morning that a hoodie, jeans and tennis shoes were the only thing I my groggie self could pick out(and should not be photographed) that I should show you something a little better. I actually wore this outfit last week or maybe 2 weeks ago and thought it was better than what I am wearing today.

Well back off to the field I go! Have a great Tuesday!
