Burgundy polka dot dress

On sunny warm days, we enjoy fall, on cold days, we hibernate like a bear. Last weekend was nice – we went out into the beautiful fall world. This weekend, not so much. We hang out in bed all day and try to stay warm while contemplating sleeping our way through the cold weather… Oregonian life.

Burgundy polka dot dress, Kohl’s, cropped black button up sweater, given to me, black shoes, old, disco ball necklace and earrings, Ann Taylor Loft, beaded purse, Goodwill, black cat eye sunglasses, Rue 21

I love the vintage 60’s style of this dress! Super cute and fun for a rock-a-billy look or just a retro vibe. I found this on the clearance racks at Kohl’s. ‘Cause I love a good deal!

Add in some fall leaves, and you’re all set for a fun fall day.

Yep. I’m a dork. And proud of it.

 

Keep my mama in your prayers this week. She goes in for another cat scan to see how the evil cancer is doing. More tumors keep popping up. This new cat scan will determine if they need to go after any more spots with radiation or start her on the trial drug she was never on during her time in the OHSU clinical trial group the past two years. For those of you who don’t know, she was in the placebo group the whole time and doing better than everyone else in the group until they finally had to take her out and send her to radiation in February after determining that two tumors that merged together were getting too big.

As always, thank you for stopping by and thank you for any prayers sent this way as we wait to see if, yet again, another shoe, is going to drop off with the cat scan news this week.

Fun Valentine’s Day Gifts

It’s February and you know what’s around the corner – Valentine’s Day! I love all the heart stuff out right now. Hearts are my favorite. And stars. But stars have nothing whatsoever to do with Valentine’s Day, so this post is all about hearts. Hearts, hearts, hearts.

I’ve put together a fun bunch of heart stuff for the special lady in your life. I mean what’s not to love about heart sweater, heart watches, heart jewelry and heart shoes? Yaaaassss!

Fun Valentine's Gifts

 

I so want those Kate Spade bow heart slingback heels. Love at first sight! And I’ve been wanting a pair of heart sunglasses for a while now, but have a hard time getting ones with a wire frame to fit me. Hopefully I’ll find some perhaps without a wire frame that will stay on my little skinny face!

Filigree heart earrings with keyholes, I’ll take those! Dr Martens with hearts all over them. Uh-huh. Sapphire heart pendant necklace – spendy, but I’m worth it. Casual clothes with hearts that I can wear every day, bring it on! I already have heart socks, but I’ll take another pair. A heart shaped purse or a fuzzy heart backpack, I’m all in. Pajamas and bodysuits with hearts, I’ll take it all, thank you very much!

There’s always chocolate and flowers if you want to go that route. This bouquet from The Bouq’s has both. So pretty. After all, chocolate, flowers and jewelry are a girls best friend!
