Rain, Rain Go Away…

Posted on: December 10, 2013

Another day of running errands in the rain…

This time I was out stocking stuffer shopping….


My facial expression here was due to the increase in sprinking rain since I am wearing a suede jacket….

I took off the protective layer I had on all day for photos and didn’t get photos done until after sunset.


I love my Joe Fresh houndstooth skinny cords because I have pattern and can mix in any color against them…. Today’s choice my thrifted suede teal jacket.  

I also like that I can wear a hat to add to the look all the while protecting my hair against the elements.


I can’t complain too much about this rain as it could be worse, we could have snow that is hitting much of the country…

Dear Readers, I was so proud to have accomplished all the shopping I needed to finish and was looking forward to the task of finishing up wrapping presents the rest of the week, when I was thrown a curve ball as my stove messed up.  I need to replace it which is so frustrating as it is only 5 years old but has had numerous issues.. So my husband and I ran out tonight pricing new ones… Getting a new slide in model requires special orders that might not make it before Christmas… have two more places to check tomorrow…Keep your fingers crossed as I host Christmas for my family and we provide breakfast and dinner…. 


I am grateful that I accomplished so much today!

I am grateful that my daughter had just finished wrapping my husband’s big present right before he came home

I am grateful that my hsuband was home early and was able to run out with me to look for stoves.

I am grateful that after a mess up with his computer that my oldest’s professor allowed him to retake his final exam online…

I am grateful for a fun time shopping and hanging out with my two middle kids today!

The hat is really cute! I wish I could wear hats, but I am not a hat person. You were so lucky to find that jacket; too cute! I love that you are wearing teal today; Tuesdays are Wear Teal for Ovarian cancer awareness.

Yes, you either are a hat person or not…. Yeah for unknowling supporting Ovarian Cancer Awareness, thanks for pointing that out!

My mom is a survivor so I try to bring light to a cancer that not too many women know about.

A good reason for your motivation!

Hope you’re able to find a new stove quickly!

It’s been rainy here too, which made it muggy since it’s hot. But we have cooler weather blowing in as I type 🙂

Love that jacket!!!


Muggy rain is just as bad as cold rain… spring rain is the best… thanks for stopping by.

First…..I love this outfit! Secondly, I am ready for the rain to head out, too.

But most of all …. Good luck on the stove hunt!

Thank you, I am just hoping to find one in stock at a price that is reasonable… my fault for choosing a slide in model when we did our kitchen remodel…

What a coincidence: Our stove went up on Black Friday & we rushed out & bought a new stove too. It was delivered today but the installer refused to hook it up because our electrical outlet is not to state code (it’s a gas range so…). My lovely new 5 burner stainless steel stove is sitting in my partially-decorated-for-Christmas living room. My husband is frantically calling his electrician & propane provider in order to resolve this. Merry Christmas!

Oh boy! Well at least you will have it in before Christmas… buying a slide in version has its challenges as most are soeciak order. Hoping fir simw Holiday magic!

I’ll definitely keep my fingers crossed for you. Hopefully, our situation will be resolved tomorrow or the next day.

love the hounds tooth pants and especially with the blue blazer
stocking stuffers can sometimes be harder than the actual gift

yes, stocking stuffers especially with the large size ones we have can be a challenge!
