Lots of "new" things have been happening. New higher management at work with new ideas and ideals for the company is causing havoc. Almost every department is getting revamped - so to speak - and lots of employees are being shuffled around and given new titles. A coworker said he felt like the company turned...

This outfit was inspired by Michelle, who wears many more light colored neutrals than I do. In fact, I've been a little surprised at my somewhat lack of black lately since that's my neutral go-to color. Maybe it's because I've been in a better mood? Or because it's spring and we may have squeaked by... Continue Reading →

End of coat season

A lot of these photos are out of order, but I thought I'd take photos while in my coats or jackets since the weather is warming up and I won't be needing them soon. The second to last photo I was wearing my workout jacket with only a sports bra underneath. I did wear a... Continue Reading →

Little plan(t)s

Tomorrow I head out for Vegas on a week long conference trip. Hopefully I'm better prepared this time in terms of wardrobe. Aside from that, I wanted to show the new plants I've gotten over the past two weeks. I'm becoming slightly addicted to buying little plants. I'm afraid to buy big ones because I'm...

Last weekend was the flower show in the city. This weekend was the orchid festival at Longwood Gardens. Z and I are lucky to be near-ish to several amazing parks, garden centers, museums and arboretums. Longwood Gardens is well known for their seasonal displays. They always have something going on even though the rest of... Continue Reading →

Out of mind until reminded

Because I don't really have enough time (unless I wanted to expedite shipping) to order anything online I headed to a nearby mall. After wandering several stores (Uniqlo, H&M, Banana Republic) I ended up in Macy's... Continue Reading →

Saving and propagating

My string of pearls nearly died entirely. I don't know what was going on with it, but I'm trying to save it now. I took what few strands were still good and put them in two little pots and put the pots in different rooms to see if they'd fare better in different areas. One... Continue Reading →

Shopping ban update

So it's almost March. How have I been doing with the shopping ban? Excellent, with one exception. On the business trip I was just on, I totally forgot to take my night shirt and didn't have any sleeping clothes! Major smack to the forehead moment for me when I realized that in the hotel room....

When does it stop

I didn't mean to suddenly disappear for a few weeks, but I'm feeling as if I'm on a merry-go-round in some alternate, hellish universe and wondering when it'll stop and I can get back to reality. Work has been very busy for me and two weeks ago I went on a conference trip. This was... Continue Reading →
