Ice, Ice, Baby

All right, stop, collaborate and Listen. Ice is back with a brand new invention...

There's your ear worm for the day. You're welcome. How sad is it that I didn't even have to look up those lyrics?!!

We had ice last night and this morning. School started 2 hours later-which was nice and wish we did everyday. It was nice to eat breakfast with everyone before going in our different directions. There were **1000** accidents in Atlanta before daybreak. Last night, people got stuck on bridges for hours and hours and many just left their cars. My boss's wife and son got stuck for several hours, too, before they were able to get a hotel around 4 am! Yikes!

So, on to tacky sweater #3!  This one isn't too bad. We actually had a family picture made with me in this sweater about 9 years ago. Who am I kidding? It's pretty bad.

I also stepped out of my comfort zone with this short leather skirt from the Gap. I thrifted this at Goodwill for $8!! How awesome is that! And I did something different by adding the socks with the tights. Speaking of tights, Kohl's has there's on sale for $5 right now. I couldn't find a SINGLE pair in my size, last night. Everything was small and medium. Grrr. I went to Kohl's JUST to return a bunch of stuff. An hour later, I'm walking out with more stuff. I swear they do something to oxygen level in there and at Target that just makes you loopy and spend money. I did refrain from buying more Christmas sweaters, though. Even though there was one with PENGUINS!

Say Cheese!!!
Oh my gosh, y'all! I had to edit because I forgot to add some exciting news!! Citizen Rosebud had a giveway just lately and **I** was one of the winners!! YAY!! This is the first giveaway I've ever won!! I'm so excited!! Y'all need to go check her out. She is AWESOME!!

    I was just pondering a trip to Kohl's...I think I am on my way!

  6. Joy~yup the sweater is bad but skirt is GOOD! Stockings and boots are good too!
    Heard about the ice; we managed to escape it..for now anyway.

  7. Ahhh...we almost got stranded in Atlanta since all of the ramps were closed. It was so crazy. An hour drive took us over 3 hours! Sigh, I never want to leave the house again!

  8. Caroline, my boss' wife and son DID get stuck for 8 hrs on a bridge in downtown. They finally were able to get off and checked into a hotel at 4 am!

  9. I love the sock and boot look
    Have asked for some boot socks for Christmas from husband. Am actually excited to see what he really gives me. It will not even be close to an actual boot sock I am sure, but that is part of the fun, right!?
