Weekend Recap

Here's the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of my weekend. Warning, this post is basically a mini-book, because I couldn't quit typing. What a much better problem than not being able to come up with words. :) ...more

From Baggy to Skinny Corduroys

Hello! I have returned from my blogging break which wasn't actually a break at all, it was just a busy life, and a lack of interest in blogging at the moment. But what's past is prologue ....more

Floral and Stripes at Last.

Stripes and floral. People either love it or love to hate it. I was ambivalent at first, but the more I see it the more I love it. I finally put together a semi-cheating version of stripes and florals. I say semi-cheating because the skirt isn't truly floral. But I think it has at least one flower on it, plus it's springy colors, so I'm counting it as floral. I really liked this look! Plus I got several compliments from ...more

Barack Obama and a Discussion of Centered Sets

Bounded SetIn a bounded set approach, there is a clear boundary drawn between who is "in" and who is "out." Usually, the boundary is made up of very specific beliefs and behaviors ....more

I just really, really enjoy sleeping in on the weekends, thus the whole getreadyreallyfastforchurch thing. Sometimes I end up with jeans and toms, but other times I actually put together an outfit on the fly that works out. I really liked the way this outfit looked. Oh, and you should totally notice the pattern mixing thing going on ....more

Fishtail Braids and Making an Effort

As you've noticed, I got my hair cut recently. I love the new shorter length, but it's more of a challenge to style it, since there aren't as many obvious options for fixing short hair. I usually put a stretchy headband around it, fix my bangs, and put the rest in a rubber band with bobby pins to keep the short hairs up. But that's lame. And I really like it when my hair is fixed ....more

The List of Great Truths

I'm not sure how it started, or why it started, but for some reason, I've slowly been collecting Great Truths. After much thought and pondering, I now have a list of two Great Truths, which are basically phrases that I think apply to my life right now and probably will apply for a very long time. I'm not sure why I feel the need to share this with the blogging world, but I'm going to anyway.Are you ready for this?1 ....more
