Much, Much Better!!

Color!! I so needed it after looking so blah yesterday! Today I decided I was wearing red. I haven't worn this red suede jacket in ages. I've had it for at least 10 years. I think it came from Macy's. The sleeves are more like a sweater, so the jacket isn't heavy feeling. I throught it on top of a classic black turtleneck, black cords and added some silver jewelry.  I felt better just being in my favorite color!!

What am I doing with my hands?!

Several of you have asked about my new job. It's going great. I feel like I'm picking up new things everyday and other things are becoming easier.  I really do like it. I need to make some more sales. Call me for insurance, People! LOL

Sunday, Ben and I went grocery shopping. I love my husband and I love going places with him and I love that he even wanted to go with me. BUT don't you find that your grocery bill is at least 1/3 higher when your spouse or child(ren) go shopping with you?  In some ways, he is worse than the kids! Anyway, we  hadn't been anywhere all weekend, so I used the occasion to create a new outfit. I thought it turned out pretty cute.

Striped Shirt: J Crew
Skirt: Ann Taylor Loft
Brown Boots & Tights: Target
Blue Socks: Stolen from Hubby!!
Necklace: From Lise
