Wardrobe Faux Pas....or Not?

Everybody in the family headed out to see Ansleigh "graduate" from preschool yesterday evening.  We were all so proud of her and enjoyed the program (mostly because it wasn't overly long and the participants didn't get bored and start wiggling too much.....and because it was pretty precious and the kids were so dang cute!).
This little missy is done with Preschool.....moving on up to Kindergarden!
And we had a wardrobe "malfunction", "clash", "coincidence", or, perhaps, "faux pas"....occur!

Remember when I mentioned a couple of days ago that my mom, my daughter and I all bought the same sandals at Target? (Read about it HERE....)

Bonnie (yes, she has a Bible verse tat on her foot and tiny footprints around her ankle.....she is fearless about her faith that way!)

Mom enjoying punch and cookies after the program.....and rocking her new sandals!
Actually, we knew this might happen.  Should have been expecting it.....

Well, maybe I was anticipating it.....because I was the only one who didn't wear them new shoes last night! 

Honestly, I don't think it truly bothered either one of them too much to have on the same shoes.  Although, I think Bonnie was a tad bit more conscious of it than Mom....and Bonnie is usually one of those people who doesn't give a flip what others think.  So, somehow, I found it amusing enough to try to snap a photo of their feet together.  Not happening!!!  When Bonnie realized I had the camera turned on, she kept moving away from her Nanny - I guess so I couldn't get a photo of them side by side....

Oh, well, it was bound to happen.

Smiling at the little things that happen daily........


  1. Ha!!!! If you had yours on, she may not have acknowledged you!!! Sweet girl! Congrats on graduation! Kindergarten... oh my! I am sad just thinking about Jemma going to school all day every day next year for first grade!

  2. If you had worn yours too, I would have said something like, "Great minds think alike!" LOL I sure miss those kindergarten days. Wish all my lovelies were little again!

  3. What an exciting day for little Ansleigh! She's adorable. I think it is funny that all three of you bought the same sandals. Good taste runs in the family.

  4. I almost bought those shoes tonight at Target! I may go back and get them, but I came really close. I just hate how you have to hook them. It is a bit of a pain, but then I should lose a bit of weight and it wouldn't be so bad! If I buy them, I am doing a post just for you!

Loving Our New Woven Blinds......

Hey, ya'll!  Labor Day weekend is winding down.....hope yours has been great!!!
Mine was actually pretty busy.  Since Eddie Dale had to work all three days, I decided I would work, too - only I stuck around the house to do my work! 
I decided to go ahead and give the woven bamboo blinds I found at Home Depot a shot.  I've been eyeballing them online for weeks because the cost was only $16.97 each.  I simply hate the plastic 1-inch mini-blinds throughout our house - they are not cottage-y - at all! 
So, I ran out to the local store (their handy dandy website indicated they had thirteen 27"x72" shades in stock) and picked up enough to do the living room.  I really like the roman shade style and the way these filter the light, creating a nice soft ambiance in the room.  Although they are not completely private, they are fine in the living area.  Oh, and did I mention they are only $16.97 a window?!?!?  So reasonable, yet they give me the "look" I've been…

Super Bowl Sunday - What's for Supper!?!?!?

One of our favorite things to do when there's a big game on TV is make up a variety of "finger foods" to snack on during the evening.  Tonight's Super Bowl was no different and we went for some of our favorites - buffalo wings, sausage balls, pigs-in-a-blanket, and, of course, one of our old standbys,  this yummy spinach dip.

It's a tradition to have this creamy dip at least once during the holidays, but we rarely have it during the year.  So, it's a real treat!  It's delicious and rich; and the basic recipe makes a ton - we snack on it for days!  My favorite way to enjoy it - scoop it up with "hint of salt" wheat thins crackers.  Yum yum!!!
Most of you probably have this recipe down by memory.  But, in case you haven't tried it, I'm sharing it below.

Spinach Dip
16 ounce container of sour cream 1 cup mayo 3-4 finely diced green onions 1 small can water chestnuts, diced 1 small package frozen chopped spinach 1 package Knorr vegetable so…

Procrastinating on a Project

Sitting here, listening to the thunder and the pounding rain against the windows and wishing I had made good on my plans to clean out my closet today.

You see, I've been contemplating emptying my closet for months.  And I mean empty it completely!  Then reload with way fewer items.  Some call it a capsule wardrobe - that is a pretty popular term these days.  Others might say it a 'minimalist approach' to dressing.  Either way, it is something that has been wiggling around in my mind for some time. 

And yet, I continue to put the project off.  Why the blazes is that?  It's definitely something I want to do - downsize and simplify my wardrobe! 

The main reason is the sheer size of the project.  It is daunting, to say the least.  Perhaps even overwhelming.  I know it is probably going to take several hours and create a huge mess if I do it properly.  So, I start thinking about the process and begin to lose sight of the end result - which is a simpler wardrobe and less …
