Just because. . .
I feel like rambling...
For Father's Day, I made this for my dad. I also made some baked beans & potato salad. He enjoyed it, as well as the rest of my family. I love my dad so much (he taught me how to cook!); and I love cooking for my family. Recipes to come for the baked beans, and the salad...just in time for Independence Day!
If you are following the blog, Thank You so much!!! I appreciate you all, and I have a little giveaway coming up for you:)
Thank you Neeta, for the suggestion you gave me awhile back about fitted skirts! I went to my local thrift store & found some true treasures! 4 very nice skirts, for ten bucks; 3 of which are pencil skirts. I feel quite grown in them:) Hooray!
I might do a couple of "haul" post, as I took a second trip back to the store just a few weeks later. I also picked up a few things from Amazon, Ulta, & Walmart.
I love shopping! I hadn't been in a long while.
Thrift store shopping is especially fun; I think I might of mentioned that I love digging through disorganized racks to find nice stuff. Not to mention, the prices are always right;)
My sisters & I (and our mom) are planning to get together for a "Day of Thrifting"! Goodwill, Salvation Army, Village Outlet...Watch out there now!!!
I have 2 home projects I want to get done before the end of summer; sewing new covers for my couch & love seat pillows, and printing out/framing/hanging a few of my (& Husbands) favorite/best photos.
I really dislike having so many great photos (especially of us), sitting unseen, on our external hard drive. It makes me think if we should really take as many photos as we do, especially when we travel. It's like, we aren't really experiencing all we can in the moment; because we are busy (first, protecting the camera & second) taking hundreds of photos for later; just for sake of "remembrance"?
How does that work; if we only see the photos, if we first turn on the hard drive???
It makes me miss the convenience of disposable cameras...somewhat. At least with them, you made sure to get the photos printed.
Do you take a lot of photos when you are out & about, or when you vacation?
What else could you do with photos, to see & enjoy them more often?
Gosh, I really want to wear some bright lipstick; but I'm not sure how my skin will react.
Every time I think about getting into makeup, there's this circle of thoughts that go something like this:
Ooh, that is a really pretty color! I want to try it!
But...I can't really try that bright lipstick, without evening out my face first. It won't really look right. Okay, I'll just get my feet wet & buy a good tinted moisturizer. I hope it doesn't irritate my skin. Ugh, but what if it does? It's too hot! What if I really like it??? I'll want to wear it everyday. That means, I'll have to wash it all off every night.
Let's see...what else???...
Oh, I got my ears pierced yesterday. No shame:D
Whew...my brain feels better when I release some of these thoughts!
How are you doing today?
