Like I don’t have enough sisters already, but today at work I am part of triplets!
Isn’t it funny, of all the clothes in the world, and all the clothing combinations, the three of us come to work in outfits that look an awful lot like we were trying to coordinate! I love it!
It is kind of a funny story too. I talked to Hillarious (girl on the right) a few times this morning and didn’t notice anything. But then we were in the bathroom at the same time and at the same time we both realized that we were twins! Especially if I took my blazer off. So we laugh, go in to graduation for some of our new GMs, laugh with the people in there about it, and think that is the end of it. Well, then Hillarious is out in the reception area talking to some people and I hear her exclaim that somebody else matches us too – enter Brownie (girl on left). So Brownie comes into my office to check out my outfit and we all laugh and then all take a picture together. And laugh some more at the random coincidence.
In other smile inducing news, hubby and I got my garden tilled last night. YAY!!!!!!!!!
Spring cleaning out my brain, a dump of what has been going on.
Sometimes the weather around here just annoys the crap out of me. Sunday it got down to 28, yesterday it was 93. I would really, really like a nice 65 degree day with a nice light breeze and clear blue skies. A real, true spring day.
The lawn has greened up so much over the past week and I’ve been out discovering what plants I’ve inherited with the farm. There are a few exciting surprises that I will share with you later – it makes me so happy to see that even though it hasn’t been kept up much, some of the plants still muscled their way through.
I spent the better part of Saturday morning out in the “flower garden” pulling out all of the quack grass that has taken over. There are a couple plants in there that will be worth saving!
We had a nasty but very quick little storm roll through this morning so we’ve got a ton of sticks to pick up again. And since nothing worth having is ever easy around here, we’ve discovered that our french doors leak. I keep telling husband that I don’t think they got installed quite right but he just won’t listen. Maybe the huge puddle of water that we had to clean up will be a good indicator to him that I’m not just making it up.
The sunset tonight was pretty. It has been nasty windy here all day (gusting to 50!) so we didn’t even really do much outside when we got home, but since we put that massive window in the living room we were able to enjoy the scenery from inside!
Hoping to get out and enjoy the yard some more this week! Happy Spring!
Well, I am officially an old fart – my youngest sister graduated from college yesterday.
Husband and I took Friday off to go to commencement and like all college graduations, it took forever, but there were a few highlights.
Dumbledore was walking around, hanging out, keeping the kids in order. I was going to get his autograph afterwards but couldn’t find him.
Baby C graduated with honors! Isn’t she pretty?
The proud parents! Out of us four daughters – 4/4 went to college, 4/4 graduated college, 4/4 did it in four years, and 4/4 graduated with honors. I think that is pretty impressive, don’t you?!
I am one proud sister! Can’t wait to see how she changes the world! Love you baby C and a big congrats from hubby and I!
Yes, you read that right. It’s getting to be like an oompa loompa farm around here. Husband has gotten another toy – this is one that we actually kind of needed though. What else could we possibly ever need out here? Aren’t all of our out-buildings already full?!
Here’s what he came home with today all happy and excited. 500 pounds of slightly rusted (just surface rust he says) John Deere goodness…
I guess it just needs a few minor modifications and will work like a dream on that huge lawn mower monster that we have. I’m just wondering what other oompa loompas will hatch out of this mother…
Doing the siding happy dance – oh yeah!
It is VERY exciting to pull up the driveway to such a lovely looking house. Well, the front isn’t as lovely as it will be just because it still doesn’t look finished where the brickwork will be, but it is approximately one hundred million times better.
And do you notice the fresh coating of snow in the picture? It snowed all day yesterday and we are supposed to get 7-14 more inches. Hubby had to go plow again this morning. It’s the winter that won’t end! But I kind of like this later season snow, the temps are pretty nice, right around 32 and that kind of snow is much more pleasant than the kind of snow we get at zero degrees with crazy wind.
Oh animated giffs – what fun!
I would also like to take a moment and help all of you lost souls out there who have been wondering – “How can I dress more attractively without showing skin?” And here is my very best answer for you with a little diagram so you can completely understand.
Starting at the feet
1. weather appropriate footwear. ensure that the color coordinates with the rest of your ensamble for a polished, pulled together look. Tall boots offer versatility – tuck your pants in or leave them out for completely different looks.
2. pants. Something in a nice neutral. Don’t focus on the material, sweatpants can totally pass for dress pants when done in a tasteful black or grey.
3. Bold print top. Something for the eye to focus on. Bonus points if it is DIY splatter tie dye.
4. Cover up for versatility with the weather. Highly recommend a plaid flannel. Does the lumerjack look ever go out of style? NO, it does not.
5. Do your part to be good to the earth and skip the shower – bed head is totally hot right now.
Rock that look like there is no tomorrow and you will be good to go no matter what activity you are doing!
We’ve got a crazy week ahead of us – our next dance class started last weekend and we have 20 couples so it is a HUGE class – hubby is also getting his hernia taken care of on Monday so I will be home with him and my mom and I are going down to the cities for JUNK BONANZA later in the week!!!
Enjoy the weekend peeps!
