It's A Beautiful Day!!

It's a true fall day. Sunny, a little cool and just flat out beautiful! And what did I do on this fine day? I went to the grocery store. <groan> I'm not sure why the people in this house insist on eating! I'm just teasing, but I really do not enjoy going to the grocery store. And it was PACKED!! Oh well. At least I'm done with that for the next 10 days. Maybe.  While I was gone, the kids did do a little cleaning up. And they helped me unload groceries. I think I'll keep them.
My Dawgs won homecoming today, so that also made the day a little bit brighter! I wish I could have been between the hedges with them!!

So, I broke down and bought some jeggings. I said I wasn't going to, but too many bloggers have made them look too cute for me not to try. And actually, I think I like them. There aren't unlike my skinny jeans, but they are way more comfortable. And I think they'll fit tucked into boots nicely. BUT, I have seen stirrup pants out there, ladies. And to that, I have to just say NOOOOOO!!!! Looking back on pictures from the 80s, when they were all the rage, and all I can think is WHAT WERE WE THINKING?!! They are just not attractive!! Don't buy them!! Don't be lured in by colorful ads and catchy commercials. Whomever thought they were a good idea did NOT live thru the trend the first time!

Have a great weekend, y'all! Get out there and enjoy the sunshine and all the changing colors!!


  1. I will never be able to wear jeggings... I just can't do it! I still haven't convinced myself I look good in skinny jeans either. *sigh* I wish I could, but I'm afraid I'll look back one day and think, "What in the world was I thinking?!" Kinda like stirrup pants :)

    I hate grocery shopping, too, but mostly because it gets so expensive! I spend at least $30 a week on fresh food for me and my husband. Why can't salads be as cheap as pasta?!

  2. Oh, I miss the days of $30 a week! Holy cow. We spend at least $150 a week!!

    And you can do skinny jeans!! I think pretty much everyone can do skinny jeans.

    Stirrup pants are another story! LOL

  3. I don't want any complaints about groceries. I have 4 kids and the 15 year old is now officially hungry 24 hours a day. But you look fabulous and although I haven't broken down and bought jeggings yet, you do make them look good.
