Yesterday I made something I found on Pinterest months ago. I had all the stuff here so why not? I put orange peel, sliced apples, and cinnamon in a pan and covered with water. I brought it to a boil and let it simmer all afternoon adding water as needed. It smelled amazing! There is no specific amount on any of the ingriedients but I wouldn't get crazy with the cinnamon...that may make it too strong.
Smelled so good!
Next, I got so tired of wearing t-shirts and blue jeans to the grocery store all the time. Yeah, I know it's kinda sad that it's one of the only places I go but it's ok with me. I have all these clothes just hanging in my closet that only get used on date nights that rarely happen. This has been my favorite casual outfit this season. Just a pair of black jeggings from LOLA at Mall of America (not sure they have any other stores), a Chambray shirt that I got for $5 from Old Navy last year, and my favorite riding boots by Steve Madden. Very casual but much cuter than t-shirts all the time and it makes me feel good too!
Simple but cute!
I was excited to buy these mint jeans from Tilly's online. My SIL, Laura, is going to be doing a post on how to wear these soon. I have a few things in mind but she and my other SIL, Carrie, are the stylish ones so I kinda count on them at times to know how far behind my style is! Lol!
Mint Jeans! Stay tuned to see how I wear them!
I also got my order from Kiki La'Rue today! UPS has been working hard for me! Ha! I bought 2 shirts, a dress, and a necklace with matching earrings. I did not get a chance to wash my hair today (big shock since I stay home with little kids) so I'll try all of them on tommorow with pics!
Love Kiki La'Rue!
So, I set some goals for 2013 and one is to get my house more organized and possibly start finishing our upstairs
but Brian insists on finisihing the old chevy in the garage. When we bought this house, a major selling point for me was the closet. All I can say about the closet is the two men that designed this house somehow got into the head of every woman and made a closet to put a smile on her face. Seriously. So, as if this dream closet isn't big enough, they put another one in the master bath that is a walk-in. This closet is as interior as it can get. No walls touch the outside of the house, no windows so it makes a great tornado shelter but, I am a woman who has been quite stir crazy in this house lately. What does a woman do with a closet that is not being used? She turns it into a dressing room...duh!
My dressing room! Ha! Now I will post lots of OOTD (outfit of the day) pics! Don't hate on the Hannah Montana trashcan! And btw...I painted that pic in the background. Any Memphis friends interested in going to a paint party? They are so much fun!
My closet has 2 entry's. This is the first. It is connected to the laundry room. Genius!
Custom shelving that you would just have to see to believe. Btw...my hubby has more clothing than me. Something is wrong with this!
This is a bookcase that we use for DVDs, CDs, purses, bills, etc. This is shot facing the laundry room.
There is a turn towards the right in the closet and this is my side. Notice he has shoes on my side! Seriously...Haha!
This is the exit or entry #2. It leads to my master bath which is connected to my bedroom. Tell me these guys weren't thinking like a woman?!?! Smarties!
Tonight I won a prize for the like the first time ever! I won a free airbrush tan from my friend, Jamie at Southernglow! I am so excited! I have known Jamie for many years! We went to a football game at Ole Miss together years ago. We had so much fun checking out the stores on the square in Oxford after the game. She has a beautiful family. I am so excited! Momma is pale but will be glowing soon!
That's all for tonight! It is pouring down rain and I am ready for my head to hit the pillow. Hope everyone has a great day tomorrow! I leave you with this precious face!
What's not to love??
