Boho State of Mind

Posted on: August 18, 2015

I Can’t believe I wore shorts two days in a row, lol..

I am not a big fan of them and less so with this weight gain 


I was in a boho state of mind and just knew I wanted to wear this kimono

You can’t see well, but the grey tank top actually has white polk a dots for a subdued pattern mixing. 

If going boho, my gold hoop earrings come into play , as do a couple of gold bangle bracelets.  


Not a good hair day with our humidity back in full force, so a soft  headband does the trick. 

In fact it enhances the boho look when in combination with the hoop earrings.  

My daughter noticed that my hair was very red and asked me about it..

I did nothing different, but I do need a haircut very soon….


Wearing my Clark Wedges , sure helped the case of not liking myself in shorts…

I love the teal handbag from Nine West I bought a few years ago at the outlet store. 

Dear Readers, with my son already back for his sophomore year and my daughter leaving tomorrow, this is a tough time of year for this emotional Mom.  I am getting use to this and have to say this year was better than last year.  I still can’t believe my youngest and I survived the other 3 kids moving our or heading to college all within weeks of each other. The quiet house was awful!  What  a difference a year makes, as my youngest is looking forward to having me back all to himself.  It is nice that he gets this experience of an only child these last years of homeschooling high school.  

Speaking of homeschooling, he chose American Sign Language as his foreign language and we just got the dictionary yesterday and are so excited about doing this journey together… We are even planning to do some binge watching of “Switched at Birth” , gotta love the beauty of homeschooling!  

This year he also gets to do Drivers Ed and our DMV site actually has a section for homeschoolers, this movement is growing in leaps and bounds as more parents make the decision to take on this role.  I never thought of it as a movement when I chose it, just knew that school wasn’t working for my son. 


I am grateful that my son’s ankle swelling is going down and that he is now walking on it.  

I am grateful for these experiences my children are gaining as they go away for college.  

I am grateful for this time for them to learn money management skills and how well they embrace it. 

I am grateful that there is so much excitement for my son in getting back to homeschooling. 

I am grateful that this year is easier for us all to deal with this parting. 

I am grateful that my knee is better and that when exercising yesterday, it did ok.

I think you look good in this. I know sometimes we don’t feel at our best in certain items, but I also think we are way too critical of ourselves. Smile and pretend is one of my mottos!!

Thank you. Just hard seeing where I was last Summer and this 15lb gain.
