Burgundy, Pink and Tan Outfit

Posted on: January 8, 2015

After a two week break for the holidays, 

today we went back to our home-school bowling league. 


We had colder temps today that actually had “feels like 27” and after sunset “feels like 14”

That’s a big deal for a place that rarely gets below freezing… 

We even saw a few snowflakes on the drive home from bowling…


It was cold, taking my jacket off for this…

I actually tried this look this morning without the scarf and layering a pink blouse underneath..

I squashed that idea when I tried making my bowling moves and felt constricted by the blouse..

I wanted another layer, so the scarf and jacket idea came into play, along with the pink hat…


I wore the tan boots to bookend the tan in the sweater…

Then noticed it went well with my tote for my bowling shoes…

IMG_2527 I am glad that I opted to purchase the pink utility jacket in addition the the olive one last year,

as the utility jacket is a great style and this pink color is so fun.  

I bought mine from F21 and sadly when doing an online search can’t find anyone else who has one.

Dear Readers, These cold temps today were a shock to our systems… none of us wanted to go back out… I even took a nap this afternoon as the sinus pressure felt like a precursor to migraine level.  The good news is that after my nap. the nausea was gone and the pressure and headache was at a milder manageable level..   This season has been tougher on my sinuses.. i need to get on a better regiment of the vitamin C that I’ve done in past years with great success.. 


I am so grateful for this homeschooling group that is so wonderful and that my 19 year old was able to join us and he too was impressed with the group for his brother and how nice and social everyone was.

I am grateful for the fun, laughter and support among the parents- laughter is so good for the soul!

I am grateful for my son’s sense of humor and am going to miss him when he leaves to go back to college this weekend..When I went to take my nap today, he piped up with “Don’t do it, Freddie Kruger is waiting for you!”  

I am grateful that after waking up from my nap that my son actually reheated the Calzones for us all- no cooking at all for me today! 

I am grateful that my daughter had a chance to hang out with a high school friend she hasn’t seen in years, today! 

I am grateful for the moment I had with my daughter today, just seeing her chilling out on the couch and telling her my thoughts of how nice it was to see  her relaxed, as I know she will go right back into school mode and stress when she gets back to graduate school… It was a nice moment as  I ran my fingers through her hair.  all anyone in this world needs is to know that they are seen, valued and understood…
