Pink & Blue

Posted on: January 29, 2015

Today was Home-School Bowling Day!  

I love Wednesdays!  


I was in the mood to wear the pink Old Navy sweater today…

It looks like my pink version is sold out..

I originally thought I would try this with a black and white striped blouse underneath, but my Chambray shirt also from Old Navy caught my eye and I thought, “Why not pink & blue?” and then instantly my lovely ADD brain joined in the fun and the next thing that I thought was “blush and bashful” … I love Steel Magnolias…


I seriously contemplated wearing my blue ankle boots , but decided with my sciatica acting up,  that I would be much better off sticking to the flatter black ones… I really am loving these black flat boots.. If you had suggested that last year winter when I first discovered wearing cute heeled booties with dresses, I would have absolutely said , “No way, this petite gal loves heels!”  Funny how practical you can become when back pain flares up…


There really are so many ways to wear a chambray shirt and

I know I’ve just scratched thee surface in that arena…

Dear Readers, I have been eating very well so far this week. I have to say I watched with both interest and some disgust a show “Fat and Back” about an English woman who was fed up with the government paying for weight loss surgery and even knee surgery for overweight patients and the threat of bankrupting the healthcare system.  She decided to gain 43 pounds in 3 months eating 6500 calories and then proposed she could easily get it back off.  She was rather harsh with no filter and no compassion, which disgusted me and I loved it when a psychologist called her on the lack of compassion. The value that I saw in her journey was that she started a Fat Club and gave them all FitBit type devices to record their daily steps suggesting that they make sure to get in the recommended 10,000 daily recommendation.  In addition they did workouts 3 days a week… All lost a decent amount of weight.  I bought a FitBit right before Christmas and would love to add this into my daily schedule in addition to workouts, as it’s easy to miss that amount of movement in a day as a stay at home mother.. I think it’s also probably something most people who sit at a desk all day don’t succeed in achieving as well. Just my take away , but could be beneficial to you my dear readers…

Do you think you succeed in getting in 10,000 steps daily? 


I am grateful for a fun day bowling and the conversation with other mothers.. 

I am grateful that I talked to my best friend and finally heard about her Canada trip.

I am grateful that yoga stretches and wearing a back brace helped my pain tremendously today. 

I am grateful for the possibility of snow in our upcoming forecast ( a big deal for an area that doesn’t see much)

Hi Traci, love the pink and blue. I also watched that special “Fat and Back” and found her to be so obnoxious that it was hard to take away any words of advice. I know that I don’t move around enough and I have heard that 10,000 steps is the goal. I wonder how you can bowl with sciatica….be careful! But I certainly see the joy in sharing the experience with your fellow home schoolers. I enjoy your postings.

Great casual look!!! Those boots are perfect with the sweatshirt…sporty and fun!! Jodie
