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.

Pajama Day, Hey!

It was Pajama Day today. This gave me the opportunity to not have to get "dressed" today, which, of course was a nice breath of fresh air. I wonder what would happen if the whole world went to work in their pajamas for one day...

By the way, today it is Mickey Mouse's birthday! I guess he was "born" when he debuted in "Steamboat Willie" on this day, in 1928.

It is also Great American Smokeout Day! Although it sounds like a day for pot heads to gather and celebrate, it is actually a call for smoker's to quit for at least a day. It is the 35th anniversary, and according to statistics smoking is on the decline! I wish someone would tell my two-pack a day father that!

On a completely different note, my neighbor, along with her sister who is visiting, was kind enough to to bring me a plate of the most scrumptious and amazing brownies ever! Thank you, lovely ladies! They are dee-lish!!!
