Pink ruffles aren't usually my thing...

 Sweater - thrifted Land's End
Blouse - thrifted California Connection Inc.
Belt - thrifted
Jeans - GAP
Shoes - thrifted Joan Helpern Signature

Even though we had school yesterday, there were hardly any kids who actually came to school, only maybe a third showed up! I had THREE kids come to my office all day. THREE! There are usually like 40. I guess I can't complain, as much as I'd like a snow day. I spent a few hours reading the paper then watched two episodes of Antiques Roadshow on my computer (and got paid to do it!) Then last night I met up with a guy I dated for like three months seven years ago to watch the Vikings game. Not in a sexxxxxay time way, just in a guh, I've been cooped up in my house all weekend from the snowstorm, I need to see humans sort of way. It was actually really fun (even though they lost, as I knew they would). Tomorrow is book club and we're doing it at my condo since I've got a fireplace so I need to spend the night cleaning up! I got into super-crafty mode during the blizzard but didn't feel like cleaning it up when I was done so my living room is covered in sketches, embroidery floss and beads. Oopsy-doops. On the upside I have a few drawings ready to make into new screens so I can finally make some new t-shirt designs! Whoopie!

P.S. My Google Friend Connect thingie just hit 200! Wahoo! Hmm, gimme a day or two to think of some sort of giveaway or something... I know there are blogs who thousands of people read but to little ol' me, this is a big friggin' deal! Thank you to everyone who visits my little corner of the internet!

I was totally in a crafty-time mood this weekend, too. I started knitting again, and then realized how much I suck at it. :)

love this big ol' cardigan!

Way to make pink ruffles look smart and bookish, and less precious (but still cute).
Good luck cleaning!

Pink ruffles may not normally be your style, but they look fabulous on you, and I love how you styled this look- that sweater looks so comfortable! I am so jealous of your winding staircase, I've always dreamed of having one :) Congratulations on reaching 200 followers!

Your blog is great, so glad I saw it tonight! I love that you are apart of a book club. Wish I lived near you - I have always wanted to join one. Maybe I should just start one?! Hope you have a great rest of your week. x

Christine, to me 200 is a very big deal, congrats! I love your outfit today, basically I just really love pink and brown together and the belt is great.

You will think this is funny, I live outside of Ft Lauderdale and it got down to 37 degrees last night (this almost NEVER happens) so I kept all three of my girls out of school!
