High Five for Friday!

Another fun month of blogging has passed and I'm still having so much fun with it! I think I've pushed myself to try some outfit combos I would have doubted before, and I'm really enjoying seeing what my blogger friends have to say and wear each day too. One things for sure though, I should really work on some different poses......not quite sure how to tackle that. Regardless, still loving each fun day here in the blogging world!

Also, I've decided to do a 30x30 for January. Super excited for this! Stay tuned for January 1st to see the pieces of clothing I picked, and the details of this fun clothing challenge!

Black, Gray, and a New Purse!

My husband's and my fifth anniversary is coming up soon, so for my gift I picked out a new Coach purse. I'd really been wanting an all black purse with a classic feel, and love this one.  I also love that it has multiple sections for different things, ie. one section for my wallet, keys, phone, another for my planner, another for my Ipad, and a last one for all the other things I feel the need to lug around.  I hate trying to dig in the bottom of my purse, and love the sections because of this.

To offset my expensive purse, and just to remind you all how I also like a deal, I'm wearing my newest thrift store find, this cute gray Ann Taylor skirt, which I snagged for $3!

Also, I haven't been doing a very good job of promoting my Facebook page, if interested, I have button on the right-hand side, you can like me there :)

3. This last weekend my son and I went to this event called "Christmas on the Prairie" that my parents help out at.  It's at the museum in my hometown and it's set up like a historical village with an old time school house, a blacksmith shop, etc. with activities for kids at each stop.  Grant had a blast!

4. My students' read The Lightning Thief and we just watched the movie.  The consensus: the book is WAY better.  Score one the the English teacher!

5. Realizing that instead of buying a snood, I can just make one myself.  I know how to knit, duh, Ginny.  Stay tuned for the finished project!
