Mom on the Go

Posted on: November 7, 2012

 So happy that the election is over and I won’t have to keep erasing messages that keep filling up my answering machine daily.  Being in a swing state of Virginia means they get to harass you.  I almost envy my friends who only have cell phones and were not subjected to this part of the election process.  I can’t imagine what Floridians were subjected to.  Now the decision has been made.

Today I get an extra treat of a longer time to hang out with my friend at the mall while the theater children are having a rehearsal.  It is so important for stay at home mother’s to take good care of themselves and have friendships,  hobbies and even put themselves first sometimes.  I was blessed to have had a mother who set a really good example of this and I always knew this was important for me to do to ensure that I don’t give myself totally away and have regrets later or not allow my children to grow independent of me.  My children have so benefited from this and I am proud to say, I gave them wings.

I hope that some day my daughter and the wives of my son’s can say about me what I say about my mother and make good choices and support their spouses need to maintain individuality.  Don’t know why I am feeling so deep today.  I am really missing my daughter who won’t be home until Thanksgiving and am probably feeling very sentimental as my son’s 17th birthday is next weekend.  It really is the beginning of that holiday season that makes you miss loved ones who now watch over us instead of sharing our daily lives. I welcome this time to cherish their memories,  to evaluate how they helped mold me,  and to check that I am being the best version of myself.  Anyone else feeling this so early in the holiday season? 

I love my new  jacket that is from Hong Kong and purchased from Ebay.  There are really a lot of feminine touches in this jacket.  My daughter has a love of Japan including their fashions and introduced me to it.  The shoulders have a really cute gathering detail that puffs up a little and the cuffs on the sleeves are an extra detail.  It does not button and is meant to hang open.  The best part of this little beauty is the back.  Loved it so much I have a photo to show you:

My husband’s insight was that it is like the Anime characters and their outfits…..Excuse the white marks. I leaned against a fence and it brushed off.  I did get it off later, so no worries. It was my husband’s suggestion to take the photos in the tree.  He really takes his role as photographer very seriously.  You should hear him suggesting how to move my head and where to place my hands….

I would really need to wear some tights with this later in the season, but don’t currently own any to match this.  So dear readers opinions are desired…. What color tights should I get for this combo?

Green Sweater Dress- Chadwicks- last year

Orange Jacket- Ebay- recent

Boots- Chadwicks- no longer available
