Peacock Colors

Today I wore a lovely gift from my mom, which I received at Christmas.  It originally came with a golden threaded cord which unraveled the day I put it on.  I gave it back to my mom because she makes jewelry as a hobby, and she returned it with this much stronger black elastic cord instead.

My favorite Christmas gift last year!

My mom is on a roll...she bought me this top, too.  It's Walmart, I believe, and if I remember correctly she bought it for me for Christmas in 2011.  My mom always buys me this color.  I have to admit, it's a great color on me.  Plus it goes with my lovely peacock pendant!  I'm also wearing a brown dress I thrifted last year for $6 at local Goodwill, and my pewter Avenue sandals.

I didn't realize my daughter took this picture, but now that she did, I have a lot to say...and ask.  1) Missy insists that I need to have my tattoo redone.  It's 20 years old!  I think it looks ok but she says it's faded and needs to get prettied up.  2) Missy says my toenails are too long?  Whaaaaa?  It's not like they're dragging on the ground creating sparks.  I don't like my toenails to be super short because it creates ingrowns which hurt.  Third, she thinks it's stupid to not wear toenail polish.  I haven't worn any in a month.  I wore a lot of polish in November and December and my nails turned yellow, so I am giving them a breather.  Does anyone else give their poor tootsies a break from the polish?

Ugh.  The hair.  Thrown back into a ponytail.  I am trying to get up the nerve to chop it off.  I mean, all I do is wear it up.  It's either in a bun or ponytail.  So why the hesitation?

So February is not my month to conceive, and I really am ok.  I'm sore, crampy and tired, but such is the life of a woman.  

The hair cut I want is so lovingly modeled from Katie from Hems for Her.  I read her blog every day or whenever she posts.  She is real, funny, and drop dead gorgeous.  Please, go stop by!  Say hello to Katie at the awesome blog Hems for Her.
