Shades of Brown…

Posted on: January 21, 2015

Tuesday was our first Homeschooling Parents Night Out for our Teen Group

I knew right away that I was going to wear a dress or skirt 


I opted to make it more casual by adding riding boots 

and an aztec print thrifted jacket.  


The parents night was just what we all needed…

We laughed so hard when we exchanged stories and realized all of us that are not single, 

protected this as a girl’s night out when the men in our lives questioned about it….

We planned another one for next month….


I really enjoyed this outfit today as browns have always been a strong color in my wardrobe…

I’ve worn this dress twice now and kept it with all browns both times…


Here’s the last time I wore it…

By the way this dress was purchased on Jane .com 

I love this site for great casual day dresses…

The inventory changes quite frequently as items sell out quickly. 

Dear Readers, I succeeded again today in meeting my exercize goal and did a workout with hand weights..I love doing strength training and my fluidity ballet bar because I feel the burn after those workouts… Cardio on the other hand has never thrilled me, but is something I need to do 3 times a week for my heart. so that’s the plan for tomorrow…I think I am going to do Rockin Body by Shaun T as my option since dancing is more fun than the treadmill…  A few years back I joined the Y and went three days a week to water aerobic, deep water and finning classes and loved the pool workouts, but as a homeschooling mother, I can’t spend 3 hours  at the gym three days a week… Alas maybe I’ll do that again in the future once homeschooling is done, in 4 years…..

What’s your favorite Cardio exercize?  


I am so grateful for the Parents Night Out as it lifted my spirit and was something as a homeschooling mother that was much needed…

I am grateful for the laughter and fun each of us bring to the conversation…

I am grateful that I get to hang out again with these Mom’s tomorrow at Bowling. 

I am grateful that my daughter called and booked her flight for her Spring Break – she’ll be home in less than 6 weeks! 

I am grateful that my son did lessons on the piano today and seems to like it… 

I am grateful for a wonderful sunny 60 degree day!

You DO look nice in browns, and your stripes in the previous post were cheery and youthful! I’m glad you enjoyed the mom’s night out.

I wanted to tell you that I was inspired by your ponchos you’ve posted in the past and bought one on sale at K-Mart last Saturday. Thanks for all the ideas you share.

I really love that dress! Kinda boho! P
