Orange Crushin’

Posted on: January 26, 2016

Today’s Color Inspiration was Orange…

I originally had paired this with a navy sweater, but 

as a Steelers Fan, it was too soon to wear anything near 

Broncos, colors… Lol

I opted for a white cardigan and felt it certainly matched

our Spring like temps in the 60’s….

This Liz Lange tunic has this awesome waist detail that is actually 

white mother of pearl, so the white sweater makes even more sense…

My hoop earrings are orange, and a gift from my daughter.

I don’t think I will ever be able to wear these fringe boots without thinking of 

my husband calling them my “Clydesdale boots”

I am loving this color inspiration week and am surprised at how many 

outfits I threw together and now have ready to wear it my closet… 

Tomorrow’s Color is PINK… since it is one of Pantones color of the year, that’s perfect! 

Self Care

Today in self care, I shared some ideas of better self care with my son on his poor diet and came up with a plan of better choices he could be making.  It went well and in the process I convinced my husband to do a family event trying cottage cheese with fruit as it’s a great punch of protein and something we don’t typically eat… So, we have an Oberweiss delivery happening tomorrow with more Greek Yogurt (now that son has agreed to smoothies)  and their cottage cheese for us all to give it a try… As I am typing this DS just asked me to go to the story to grab some mozzerella cheese sticks… Guess he really did listen!   Off to the store, then back to write my gratitude for the day…

Gratitude

I am grateful to my Facebook friend who posted her after work out snack of cottage cheese, bannana and what looked like cinammon-  that sparked my conversation with my guys who both were open to at least experimenting with it. 

I am grateful for a fun walk to the store to pick up cheese sticks and canned fruit, I also got pumpkin seeds as I’ve been reading all kinds of benefits from them… 

I am grateful for a nice day in the sixties before our temps drop and may bring snow by the end of the week.  

I am grateful for plenty of sleep last night, can’t ever take that for granted!  

I am grateful that my son had another day off school and that VCU is being cautious with so many commuter students.

Love the orange. Very envious of your weather. Here in the Midwest we’re lucky to be near 30. One of my go to healthier snacks is cottage cheese with mandarin oranges.

Thank you! I wish our weather was consistent it was near 50 today and getting to freezing tonight. It messes with my sinuses … I got the cottage cheese today, but saw the sodium level and wondered if all brands are higher as mine is 560…

Oh no, I’m going to have to check the label on mine! I empathize with you with your sinus troubles. Mine are horrible. The changing weather wreaks havoc on them. I work long days (10 hour) and all the headaches from my sinus problems make it very difficult just to function. Add that to insomnia ( I think from premenopause) and it’s a real treat. I just keep telling myself it could be worse. Hopefully the insomnia will end if menopause ever kicks in. 🙂

Not good company to be in is it? So sorry to hear you are having the same issue and can’t imagine trying to work with it. I am not doing as well with homeschooling a teen who had a month break, lol… he is taking advantage of it for sure… Sleep is so important for my well being as I’ve always been an 8 hour person… Hope these swing in temps calm down for us both!
