Let’s Give this Dress Idea a Try

I happened upon a rack at Ocean State Job Lot that held a bunch of cute dresses. Usually, as a woman with wide hips, it’s difficult for me to find a dress that suits my body type. I picked out two dresses, each I felt may end up looking odd on a girl with curves, but I actually adore this first dress I wore. Never mind my double chin, most of us who have given birth or not end up with one as we get older. I have learned to embrace this double chin even if I do hope it […]

It May Be Hump Day but to me It’s Like Monday

I sit here at my desk with so many things I could be writing and sharing with you all, but to formulate one simple blog post on one topic is really just not working for my all-over-the-place brain. I woke up on the right side of the bed with my five year old son snuggling me and being all happy with a great big hug. My son then proceeded to tell me that “there must be some cartoons on by now”. That meant *hint hint* Mama it’s time for you to wake up. I woke up, sort of. Kept hitting […]

I Can’t Wait to Fit In Your Shoes Mama

Walking into an appointment, wearing my awesome black Earth Footwear boots, the daughter says to me “Mama I can’t wait to fit in your shoes”. I smiled and replied “hopefully my shoes are not worn out by then”. As I sit here thinking about that brief conversation, I realize that what my daughter said can have more than the one meaning she had meant behind saying those words. To my daughter, she simply meant she wants my shoes. A compliment taken by this Mama who has a lack in fashion these days. On a deeper level this could mean something […]

Comfy Medical Scrubs For All

Yes, I have told you all before long ago that I worked as a film librarian at a hospital in a couple towns over from where I live now and I loved that job because I could get away with wearing medical uniform pants and things like hot pink scrubs. I rarely was seen by patients and so it wasn’t required that I wear such things but in all reality it was a dirty job where I got dirt on me all day from the x-ray films and basement where the older x-rays were stored so why wear my awesome […]

Dressing up For Special Events

This year I plan to attend blog conferences, oh yes, I plan to travel for the first time in my twenty-nine years of life! The thing I think about most when it comes to attending special events is the clothing I should have with me on such trips to events. You see, I am a simple girl with simple clothes, but for special events, such as conferences I would now have a need to purchase evening dresses and maybe even find matching bracelet with necklace to liven up the outfit for a dinner at a conference. I have never been […]

Please Don’t Let Winter Come

Oh my gosh it’s already September, to think next month I will be 29 and my daughter will be 8 and it will be the season of Fall which means Winter in NH isn’t that far behind it. I love Fall, it’s my favorite season and no it’s not because that is my birthday month but Fall is a warmish cold season, not too hot and not too cold usually. Right now it’s the beginning of September and we are in the mid 80’s though so who knows what Winter has in store. I started unpacking my Winter Hats and […]
