To Tide You Over...

I did not in fact fall off the face of the Earth.  I've actually had a ton of fun this month.  And been sick.  And kissed my Godson and his little sister over and over and over again.  While sick.  Don't worry, they're fine.  And cried because I had to leave them.  Like on an airplane in an aisle seat where everyone could see me bawling.  Whatever.  It's not like I will ever see those 200 fellow passengers again.  I hope.  I've also had lots of meetings and other normal stuff that manages to fill up my every waking moment.

So this month, blogging just didn't make the cut.  I will get back on here.  Really.  Next week, if not earlier.  I have some fun projects to show you. 

Until then though, here are some awesome posts that I read last night on a few of my favorite blogs.  Consider this a little intro to some new (and fantastic) reading material.  Let me know what you think...

Oh sweet Tyler!  I love this girl and wish we lived closer as I am pretty sure she would be great fun over drinks, girl talk and SEC football. 

Read this post and then do yourself a favor and read her entire blog.  Your life will be forever changed by Courtney's words and it will make you feel extra thankful for all you have this Thanksgiving.

Dear Santa,

I need these.  You understand.  Seeing as how we both live in the frigid North Pole.

Is Anyone Surprised That Kim Kardashian Is Getting Divorced?

I've not watched the Kardashian's in years but I've seen countless commercials for the show.  And every time, despite my eye rolls of the the K sisters, I think that Kris guy sounds like a total jerk.  Even worse than Scott. 

My point is that even though I never watch the show and think they are all more ridiculous than the next, I totally saw this coming. 

Yawn.  Yesterday's news.  She'll probably get married to someone even taller next season.  I just hope she's learned her lesson to never wear a dangly head piece again.  That's the true tragedy here.

Seriously, nothing good could ever come from having these three fools at your anything.  Don't you think they look like they belong on the next season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey?

Trendy On The Cheap

So I mentioned yesterday that I was finally brave enough to wear my skinny jeans.  But I neglected to mention (again- because I did post this a loooong time ago) how I came to purchase them.  Or more specifically what I paid for them.

OK so as you all know, my style is classic and preppy.  I have clothes that don't fit due to an expanding waistline, but that are still perfectly in style circa middle school.  I own very little that is considered "in" or "cool."  I am surprised that skinny jeans are still en vogue to be honest.  They certainly do not flatter every body type.  And the ever popular combo of skinny legs with a low rise waist on a teen who isn't fully aware of what flatters her body (read: a size larger can sometimes make you look two sizes smaller when it means you will no longer have rolls hanging over the pants) is the cause of many (silent, in my head) gasps that anyone let you walk out of the house like that.

But last year I decided that this trend was clearly sticking around a bit longer than I anticipated.  I wanted to try them.  And then I found a coupon for $5 denim at Target.  I paired that coupon with a sale and snagged my jeans for just $4.99.  I have another (non skinny leg) pair that I actually got totally free as they were on sale for $4.99 before my $5 coupon!  That was about the max I was willing to pay for something that I knew good and well might never leave my closet.

This post has a point...I promise.

OK so the $5/1 denim coupon is back on the Target coupon page, y'all!  My advice is to print that puppy now and keep it with you when you pop into Target on errands.  It will likely make for a great deal on a pair of jeans- skinny, boot cut or otherwise.  And for anyone like me, who is too nervous to spend much on a trendy clothing item, this is a great way to step outside your box without breaking a budget.

I promise to post if I start seeing sales.  Though I've not been in any clothing sections in months as fall/winter clothes depress me.  Why oh why are maroon and evergreen the brightest colors available for sweaters?  I'm sorry, but no one looks cute in maroon.  I think I age 40 years just saying the word ... mah-roooon.  Blah!
