It’s been cold enough around here that wearing skirts even with tights or leggings just isn’t very warm. But I am SO tired of pants! So, despite the cold north wind, last night I wore a skirt to church.
Because a Snow Bunny I am not. I did see two cute fuzzy bunnies romping in the snow in the pasture next door early this morning. This Frumpy Hausfrau does not resemble an adorable tiny bunny; she’s more like a thick layer of fat beneath the fuzzy fur kind of hare.
Even a mini-vacation set me back a bit from blogging! I’ve also found it more challenging to get outfit photos with Hungry Bird back in the nest, and one of my better photo areas out of commission. Add to that the fact that I’m feeling like a sausage, and you get fewer outfit posts. I know…you’re so sad about that. Ha ha!
JC Penney’s has not produced a coupon in over a year, since they began their new “square deal” plan. Until a few weeks ago, that is! I got a giant postcard in the mail that was also a $10 off coupon. While I’ve not found much to my liking at JCP in the past year or so, I did find this cute dress on clearance. After the coupon, it cost only $4! It will look better with heels instead of boots, but boots were necessary because of the snow on the ground.
Sometime during the wee hours of Sunday morning, the wind began to blow as if it needed to extinguish a cake full of those stupid re-lighting birthday candles. So much for the flowy skirt outfit I’d picked out for church the night before….and so I donned pants instead.
You know how some folks, especially tall good-looking ones, are described as a “tall drink of water”? Well, I’m more like a short cup of cocoa in this outfit:
Nope! She has simply been too busy to take photos of her fabulously frumpy outfits! Good news to report: Hungry Bird (my son) got a job; this is his second week and he just learned yesterday that his pay rate is a little higher than was advertised. Happy Hungry Bird! And happy Mama! It’s so nice to have the house to myself much of the day again. I’ve been lounging about in my jammies far longer than necessary, simply because I can, but that is changing now. Too much to do to be so lazy!
This outfit was worn to church a couple Sundays ago.
