today (as well as the past week or so) has been exceptionally warm for february in north carolina.
i can’t for the life of me decide what to wear because i’ll be too hot in winter clothes & look ridiculous in summer clothes (it is february, tank tops by themselves are not acceptable…. yes, i’m talking to you girl at starbucks on saturday in a tank top & capris).
so today i decided the perfect outfit for a 75 degree february day would be jean shorts, argyle tights, and pink moccasins.
it’s a good mix of summer, spring & winter.
kudos to me.
& it’s kind of a ode to my high school wardrobe of randomness.
(did you know i was voted best dressed in high school?)
ha, what were those people thinking?
but truth: i love this shorts & tights deal.
[one] i did NOTHING productive for school over the weekend (i did run errands, paint, went on an amazing run saturday morning & heard an awesome message at church) but it’s okay, i always get my work done.
[two] i’ve been eating chocolate peanut butter & bananas for breakfast (it’s delicious).
[three] i had dessert after dinner friday & saturday night… (both times were delicious, i hate it when you splurge & it isn’t even good & one time it wasn’t even my idea).
[four] i’m horrible at using my time wisely, so i’ve scheduled time to do all the things i have to during the week (we’ll see how this goes).
[five] i actually wanted jeff gordon to win the race at phoenix yesterday (true, i like him a lot better than i used to, he’s not that bad. but i’ve never wanted him to win more than i did yesterday). ANYONE is better than kyle busch.
i’ve decided to start doing a friday recap, similar to cole’s on her blog, letters from coco.
(if you don’t read her blog, you totally should, it never dissapoints when i need something inspirational to read).
[verse] let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. galations 6:9.
[song] marry me by train.
[obsession] black & white cordone toms. i REALLY want them.
[accomplishment] i finished the painting i’m doing for a friend of my mom’s, just waiting for the verse she wants on it (i might have a little something extra i want to add to it though 🙂 ).
[goodbye] protein bars. no more for me, i think they’re making me sick.
i’ve decided to link up with julia from black tag diaries for thankful thursday this week (& probably in the weeks to come too).
i read her blog regularly & love it!
so here it goes…..
[one] i’m thankful for such a wonderful family. it’s been rough the past few weeks with school & i wouldn’t have been able to get through it without them.
[two] i’m thankful for apples, honey, & cinnamon. i’ve been snacking on this combination the past few days & yes, high in sugar, but a pretty healthy snack.
[three] i’m thankful for bully sticks (for dogs). annie loves attention & i love to give it to her but sometimes i have to do work & her sweet little crazy self barking & jumping all over me doesn’t help. bully sticks last FOREVER (unlike rawhides) & are better for her digestive system (unlike rawhides) & are less of a choking hazard (unlike rawhides) = she is entertained (safely) while i do my work.
[four] i’m thankful for chamomile tea. i’ve given up all coffee (& any other non water drinks) during the week (saturdays & sundays are the only coffee days) & although i really do love water, sometimes you just want something warm to drink.
[five] i’m thankful for how blessed i am.
what are you thankful for today?
[one] that was one of the best daytona 500’s i’ve ever seen (even though junior didn’t win).
[two] trevor bayne was so adorable in all his victory circle celebrations.
[three] i changed my thesis topic again on wednesday.
[four] i’m so over school right now, i’d rather stay home & paint.
[five] this past weekend was crazy good.
