Birth of a project

I was getting dressed for a friend's birthday party and I didn't know what I was going to put on my body. I looked in my closet and it seemed empty, unpromising. I've had these moments before; everything was old, ill-fitting, or blah. I thought to myself, "Ugh! I have NOTHING to wear!" Then I began rifling through my closet and saw a forgotten shirt I loved and many more, and I realized I was crazy. I had plenty to wear, and plenty to choose from. My closet was FULL of treasures! At that moment I decided I would take a year to explore my closet and to add NOTHING new to my wardrobe.

I would create a NEW outfit for each day in order to maximize my wardrobe and shake up my style.

Basically, I would try to "snap out" of my fashion rut, and appreciate what I have.

It was my New Years' project:
One Closet, One Year.

The Pacific!

So, I plugged my friend's appearance in The Pacific incorrectly. That is, I said he would be appearing on March 27th in Episode 2, but he is appearing tomorrow night! He will be on screen at around 23 minutes into the episode. I am happy for him, but I am sad that I don't have HBO. I'm sure I'll figure out some way to see Mr. Matt Young in The Pacific!

I did stay in last night, but wouldn't you know I did not get my sick self into bed until well after 1 a.m.? I am so bad! However, I did sleep until around 9:30, so I feel pretty rested. Being a night owl would not be so bad if I were not in the profession I'm in, and if I did not have children. Although, truthfully, the boys entertain themselves in the morning, and Hollis is pretty self sufficient too. She will read to herself and play next to me, while I'm snoozing next to her. It could be worse. I could have super-early-riser-children-who-do not-know-how-to-play-by-themselves. I could also have a husband who is as bad as me when it comes to getting up in the morning. I do not. Richard gets up every morning even if he has gone to bed at 3:30 a.m., as he did the other night thanks to a work crisis. I do try to make sure he sleeps in at least one of the weekend days. Tonight is poker night, so tomorrow he gets to stay in bed!


Laying low today, so sporting comfy well-worn garments.

Shirt: Old Navy tank. I believe it was acquired at a clothing swap.

Skirt: Thrift store purchase. A line skirts are perfect for my pear shape. This is an old one, but I love the color!

Shoes: Mac & Jac.   I desperately need a pedicure. I have not had one since before Hollis was born! Maybe I'll treat myself for my birthday! I am also a fan of gold shoes!


  1. Even without the pedicure you have beauty feet. God, I sound like such a perve. Who knew I was so obsessed with you? Well, this love has lasted for close to 30 years. It's an enduring love that knows no bounds, it even extends to your extremities.

  2. They do say love is blind! Perhaps that explains your forgiving eyes! Have 30 years gone by that quickly?!... AMAZING!!!! We've lasted longer than many marriages!!!

  3. Most marriages. I think it's more like 27ish years. A long friken time.

  4. And the two moms have enjoyed watching you guys always. That's why this is so fun.
