Happy Thanksgiving and What I Wore.....

I've noticed a trend - bloggers posting about certain outfits they've put together, particularly on Wednesday.  It's called "What I Wore Wednesday", I think, and I'm sure it links up for a party somewhere.  There are a couple of these "fashionistas" who put together the cutest outfits and I look forward to their post every week!  I so wish I could pull myself, or at least an outfit, together the way they do!

Well, today is the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.  Around here, that means it was a day devoted to last minute picking up around the house, running to the store for forgotten items, baking, running to the store for another forgotten item.....You get the idea.  It wasn't exactly a day for getting all cutied up!  But, I wanted to play "What I Wore Wednesday".....

So, tongue in cheek, here's what I wore today.....

Mossy Oak screen printed long sleeve tee - from WalMart - circa 2007 - $9.96
Ancient Levi's - from Academy, I'm sure - circa too long ago to remember
Nike sneakers - from Academy, a couple of months ago - used the Hub's discount, so about $70

I felt pretty silly posing in front of the full length mirror and taking my own picture - that's for sure!  And there's no charge for that fantastic view of my messy guest room/home office, including the bed with no bedskirt (but that's another story.....).  

All in all, I stayed pretty comfortable all day in this relaxed ensemble.  Ran to WalMart and HEB....oh, and Dollar General when I realized I'd forgotten confectioner's sugar.  Baked the cornbread and biscuits for the dressing tomorrow, and a batch of oatmeal cookies.  Took a short little siesta with the dogs.  Then Eddie brought home chicken finger baskets from DQ and now the jeans are feeling a little restrictive....but, that's the price you pay for enjoying fine dining like DQ!!!

Now, on a more serious note......

I want to wish each and every one of you a most blessed Thanksgiving.  
May your heart be filled with gratitude and joy not only tomorrow, but every day.  

See y'all on Friday with our kick-off of the Christmas season!!!

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.

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 …
