A History Lesson…..
While driving to school this morning my two older girls were talking about what movies they wanted to watch at school, since it had been raining, and there would be no recess. Jenna wanted to watch Toy Story 3 or The Magic School Bus. Abby wanted to finish her movie on George Washington. Here are a few things that Abby wanted me to learn about good ole George.
- George Washington is on the $1 bill.
- He was the first president.
- He cut down a cherry tree and that was a naughty thing to do. His daddy grounded him for like week.
- His daddy died, his mommy died, then he died.
This is what it looks like outside my front door. It is going to be a lazy Friday of cleaning. On days like this, I really do not want to leave the house unless I really have to. I am pretty productive on rainy days. I love the rain.
What I Want To Wear…..
My style is basically preppy. I will wear my loafers and cardigans with anything. I love a tailored look, but will match with a loose tee. I do all things house wife related in yoga pants and a t-shirt. The only time I am out of them is if I am going out for a meal, appointment, etc. I will wear them anywhere. I make sure I am always dressed to exercise first. If I am in another outfit, I tend to not want to change out of it and then I get lazy. Below are a few outfits I put together.
I have to tell you that this outfit is me to the core. My shoes will usually never “go” with my outfit. If I am wearing green, I would pair my pink sparkly converse with them. I like to wear my jaguar pumps with everything. Those shoes are fierce. I am very happy that this Spring is about color. I never completely match. If I could find a faux leather bag like the one above, I would be a happy mommy.
On the flip side, I think all woman should have a few “Audreyesque” outfits in their wardrobe. The preppy girl in me is happy with glee! I really must find a blouse like this for the Spring /Summer. Black ankle pants are a must in my wardrobe.
A Few Words…
New International Version (NIV)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
I have been worrying too much lately about our move this summer. Everything is up in the air, and so much needs to be done. It is times like this that I can become a scary person. I need to remember that God is in control, and He has our best interest at hand. As long as I trust in Him, everything will work out.
