song of the day: 'you rock my world' by michael jackson
i have just been overwhelmed by you guys lately and your comments and support both of me and the christmas pledge. i'm just so excited :)
and thanks for all the hair advice. i may even just talk with my stylist about what product she would recommend. she's pretty cool and i doubt she's be offended by my telling her to her face that i need to go a cheaper route.
k, so my poncho is a good story. not really but i'm gonna tell it anyway. i was at my favorite thrift store last week i think and saw it in the bedding section. i thought, 'hey, i need a blanket to keep on the sofa so i won't freeze this winter.' i picked it up and unfolded it to find the price tag. $4 on half-price sale, so that meant $2! SOLD. upon further inspection, i saw it was actually a poncho. eureka! a cute plaid snuggie! even better. i could walk around the house and still stay warm. this was brilliant. i got it home and got cozy with it that night. found out it was waaayyy too itchy for snuggling with. sad face. then i had to decide what i was gonna do with it. then, the light went on and i realized that i hadn't cut any clothing in a very long time, or at least a few days, so yesterday morning, i took the scissors to it and this is what you get! my stars i love this thing now. as long as i wear long sleeves under it, it's perfect. and yesterday was frigid. and by frigid i mean the high was 48 and was maybe that temp for all of 5 minutes and cloudy. and this is one outfit i felt very well suited me.
this is another brooch from matt's grandma. i have a third but it really looks like a silver christmas wreath and i don't know what i think about that.
and speaking of matt, please be thinking of him today. he's going to undergo a procedure this afternoon of a delicate nature. suffice it to say, he'll be laying on the sofa all weekend with a bag of frozen peas :)
