Anyway! While the rest of the county is still reeling from the effects of Hurricane Sandy and an early winter, Florida is Florida. It's hot and I am still wearing summer clothes. I decided to break a cardinal rule today; I wore white after Labor Day. Hey, it was 81 when I left for church. I'll wear white if I want to!
|No, that is not a baby belly, I'm just standing awkwardly, it appears.|
|Still doing the swoopy bang thing. I wore a full face of make up today and felt very cute. I've got green eyeliner, an oyster colored shadow, black mascara, pink blush and lipstick. Not so sure about the pink on me.|
Besides wearing dresses, I particularly love the combo of a long skirt and top/tank top combo with sandals or flip flops and cute jewelry. I didn't wear a necklace today, not sure why. But my earrings are cute. See?
|My only concession to "autumn"? This cute mocha colored nail polish which is now my absolute favorite even though both of my boys think it looks like I have muddy toes. But Missy loved it so this could be a boy vs. girl kind of thing.|
Next weekend will be busy. I have a bowling party on Saturday at 3pm, and then a youth ministry potluck on Sunday afternoon! I will take lots of pictures, and it should be so much fun! I love that my church is active and doesn't just stay inside the building. We're out doing stuff in and for the community. I think it makes a huge difference, don't you?
|Oh, Nutmeg. You don't miss a chance, do you?|
|Sly over the shoulder modeling pose. Teenage boy photographer not amused.|
|I know red is my favorite color, but green is awesome too.|
I am feeling better after having withdrawn my promotion application. I will stick with the long term plan; using my $2000 overage check (leftover vacation pay I've saved up for years!) to buy Mr. R and I a new mattress and the study materials for me to take the harder coding exam when my license expires in April 2013. Can you believe it's been nearly two years since I passed my CCA and haven't even been able to use it? So sad. I am also hoping to have enough (I have $2000 in there now, and I'm still building up funds, so I'm thinking I'm going to have around $2300) to get a contractor in the house to put up some drywall and create a new office space for me. One thing I love doing is interior decorating in my head. It's like the fanciest game of Tetris ever. I have finally figured out a way to get an actual office without knocking down a wall, but putting one up, and moving a door over a few feet. It's in the ugly freezer room! It's big enough for my desk and computer and chair for now, but I hope to have money come tax return time to really fix it up. I'm tired of being stuck in the corner by the kids bathroom. It smells like teenager over there, and it's loud under the skylight. I want to close a door and have a space for me!
