Man I am glad this week is over. After a week of irritations, and annoyances, and bad bed habits I am so happy it is the weekend! Tonight (well technically last night!) my sister and I went shopping and to dinner, and I can say we both needed the time out. It was a good, good night, and I got some very pretty things (I'll show you later).
I'm nursing a sore throat. Who knew cheap tea could taste so good!
My feet didn't touch the floor. Bri is two years younger than I am. Her's did....
I was so frustrated this morning that I wore jeans. I know. Jeans. Like real, for honest, jeans. I bought two pair at Lane Bryant last weekend. I usually avoid "plus size" clothing stores like a plague, but was in dire need of new bras and have the most random bra size in the word so I have to buy them there. I've been trying to find some nice, cozy jeans for those days when I don't really want to put a lot of fuss into my outfit, but had yet to find them. On a whim I decided to check out Lane Bryant's jeans. I'm very picky about jeans. They have to be a dark wash, straight leg, high waisted, and be free of studs, glitter, logos/insignia, rips, tares, frays, and must be long enough to cuff once or twice. Without sounding like an advertisement, I was incredibly impressed with their jeans. They have a system of fitting them to your body shape so when I tried these on it was like they were made for me! I was very pleased. Plus they make my bum look fantastic! And they were on sale! Yay! So now I live in these jeans. I honestly love them so very much. They're so comfortable! Anyways, I wore them today and was actually pretty please with my outfit. Excuse the bathroom mirror shots, it got dark before I could snap photos and the only chance I had was in the bathroom while we were shopping. I'm quite pleased with how this came out though!
Cowl- knit by me
Jeans- Lane Bryant
Bag- Gift from my parents for Christmas (I literally can fit my head inside this thing. It is huge and the most perfect bag in the world. I have pictures to show you of my head inside. Yes, I tried it.)
This cowl neck warmer thing is my newest knitting creation. Bri calls it my "turtle neck thingie." I call it totally warm, cozy, and I want a million of them. By the end of the night (when she got so cold that she had to borrow it...) she wanted one too... The "pattern" I used was to cast on 30 stitches and then stockinette the whole skien or yarn and cast off. I then mattress stitched the ends together. I'm sure there are more difficult precise ways of doing this, but this works for me.
Off to bed!
