Split Personality

Here are two purchases I made in the past few months. I adore both and have worn them several times though never together. Are you ready?

I bought this necklace at Anthropologie.

It was $38. Just the right price for something I’ll likely only wear for a season or two. I am loving it just as much with the browns and burgundies of fall as I did with pinks and greens of summer!

I also purchased these boots.

OMG - I LOVE them! Lordy I DO have a thing for red shoes. I am wearing the boots with dresses and skirts and it is a level of fun I am absolutely crazy about!

So readers tell me straight: can schizophrenic be a personal style ?

vb (intr)
1. to disappear, esp suddenly or mysteriously
2. to cease to exist; fade away

Oh hai. I don’t seem to be able to get over here. Stuff is happening. Life is spinning on. I just don’t seem to have the capacity to sum everything up and spit it out here. Or maybe I do:

  • My sister is back at work. Very tired, but in otherwise good health. It is miraculous.

  • We had a grand time with Precious Oldest and her friends doing the tailgate thing a few weeks back.

  • Costco had a wonderful Brunello di Montalcino in last weekend. $28.99 a bottle. $28.99!!!! I was shoving half a case in my cart when the manager walked by. He asked if I knew that Brunello. Know it? I’ve been to the vineyard! Divine.

  • We leave late this afternoon to drive to Precious Youngest’s university for a repeat tailgate performance tomorrow.

I am considering delineating how to properly throw a college tailgate party. We’re pretty good. I’m just sayin’.

Portrait of "Pain"

There is one certainty in fall

It matters not if you are a fan

It can not be avoided

Foot Ball

Can you guess what my college colors were?

Then you can only IMAGINE how painful THIS was!

Ah well, at least the children enjoyed themselves!

A Girl Could Get Misty

The internets can be a wonderful place. Some of my favorite bleeps are writers/aspiring authors/book reviewers. They have book giveaways on their blogs on a regular basis.

In the span a few short days I won not one but TWO book giveaways! Thanks to Green Girl For "News To Me" and to Jenn for "The Red Queen"!

If you don't hear from me you can assume I'm off on a reading jaunt!
