Blue Christmas

Blue Christmas. Get it.  I'm wearing blue...beside a Christmas tree.... I crack myself up! 

So, this past weekend was my last weekend of training. No more driving back and forth to Atlanta and staying in a hotel. YAY! But, I must say the Homewood Suites Hilton on Cobb Parkway in Atlanta was awesome.  They have a free hot dinner Monday thru Thursday nights and a free hot breakfast every morning.  The rooms were nice and spacious and the food was great.  They couldn't have been any nicer.  Whenever we go somewhere, I will be sure to check for a Homewood Suites! (And no, I am not being paid for this gushing! LOL)  

My training group and I ate very well, for the last month. We got money for meal allowances while there and we made the most of it.  But I am definitely paying for it now.  My weight is up and my clothes are tight! ACK!  Back to the diet!!

Sweater: Lands End, AT&T
Shirt: Macy's via Goodwill
Skirt: Target
Tights: Target
Boots: Bare Traps, Macy's
You will probably see me in variations of the outfit above.  I have to wear team colors to work and that's a little limiting.  I will try to take pictures of outfits when I'm NOT at work, provided I'm actually going out.  Trust me, you do not want to see me in the sweats and flannel pants I wear around the house!!

I'm linking it up with Patti at Not Dead Yet Style, Visible Monday because today was my first day actually on the sales floor and I felt very visible! And a little overwhelmed.  But I'll get it. I'll get it!
Have a great week, Y'all!!


  1. Joy, you look amazing in blue! In fact, it makes my Wildcat loving heart so proud to have such a pretty lady wearing my colors. I never would've thought about wearing tights & boots with my denim skirt. Love it!!!
