I Bought A Steamer! Hurray!

 I bought a little travel steamer a couple of weeks ago to see if it does better on blazers when traveling.  I'm happy to report, it does.  The problem with my baby steamer is it only lasts through about two pieces of clothes before you have to refill it.  That's a pain.  So today, we went out to purchase a couple of birthday gifts for some parties Kira's going to next weekend and we took a detour through the linen store to hunt for a reasonably priced, larger steamer.  We found one for $50 and it lasts for 30 minutes and you don't have to wait for it to cool down before refilling.  Yes, boring, but I was so excited I came home and steamed most of my clothes for the week.  I have to get the iron out for the pure cotton things because they require starch, but the steamer does wonders on jackets.

I now know how my mom felt when she got a new vacuum cleaner.  I guess I'm officially old.  It had to happen at some point!
Now I'm off to the gas station to fill up my car for the week.  The fun just continues!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

 Good day today! Kira scored a goal at her soccer game and they beat the other team 5-0!  Go Eagles!

Last night, we had the cutest thing happen with the dog and Kira.  Dave, Kira and I were playing a game on the floor and Kira was leaning against me. She got up to go to the bathroom and while she was gone, the dog took her exact spot, leaning against me. When Kira came back, she burst out laughing because it really was cute!

Polka Dot Parade

You can't tell from some of these pictures, but the lining of my jacket matches my scarf perfectly and I bought them at separate stores.  Super cool!

It's easier to tell how they match in these pictures.

My final picture of the week on how my cup matches my outfit.  Yes, that is my messy desk in the background.  It looks even worse than what you see here!

Diet Coke Attack

I was attacked by my bottle of Diet Coke today.  There I was, innocently working on a spreadsheet, getting ready to go to a meeting and I took a swig of my Diet Coke.  I put the bottle down, and poof!  Out came a stream of pop all across the front of my jacket and all down the sleeve of my jacket.  Four minutes before I had to be in a meeting, a meeting I was running.  Grrrrrrrr.  So I ran to the bathroom and wiped off as much as I could and then took the jacket off.  Now I have to get it dry cleaned.  AND it was a waste of good Diet Coke.   Bummer.

And yet another outfit my cup matches.  Gotta love the cup!

Tweet Tweet

 I think I'm living a second childhood right now.  I am absolutely loving the novelty shirts at the Gap.  I purchased the elephant shirt a while back and then this little baby caught my eye.  I love all the little birdies on it and each time I looked down at my shirt today, it made me smile.  It's probably not mature, but I don't care!

I almost forgot to take a picture of how my office cup matched my outfit today.  Then, at the copier, one of my co-workers reminded me of my task.  I work with a very supportive group of people.
Ta da!

Orange You Glad It's Tuesday?

 I've had this outfit ready to go for a while, but wanted to wait until it really was fall to wear it.  Today was the day.


 Day 2 of how my cup matches my outfit.
 Crashing after a long day.
Before I fixed the worst sunny side up, that didn't wind up sunny side up, eggs ever made.  I need to learn how to cook real food.  The stove is not my friend!

Happy Tuesday!

The Static is Back

Ah fall.  There's a nip in the air, the leaves are changing color, and the static is back.  I blame my car coat for this, but when I went into the bathroom today to take my pictures, I had to march back to my office and grab my can of static guard because my skirt was stuck to my legs in a very unflattering manner.  THEN, on my way back to the bathroom, that lady who shouldn't be in the office was heading towards the same bathroom where I take my photos.  Great. Just great.  My choices were wait her out, or explain what I was doing if she caught me taking photos.  I opted for explain and I'm pleased to report, I finished before she did!

 You can make out the static guard mark on my skirt above.  Luckily, it dryed clear because this skirt is silk!

The static guard lives in my desk drawer.  The can lasts forever and it has bailed me out of many a sticky situation,  pardon the pun.  Two thumbs up static guard!
My co-workers can be as silly as me and decided that I needed to post a picture on how my skirt matched my cup.  I am ever the coordinated accountant!

A Chill in the Air

When the dog decided I needed to get up this morning, it was down right cold in the house.  So cold, I turned the heat on and grabbed a blanket.  The weather in Ohio goes from super hot to fall in the blink of an eye.  It's a good thing it's pretty in our state or we'd all be packing up to leave.

Pretty, but painful.

 Replacement shoes - the other shoes made it all of about 2 minutes before I decided no way, not today.
Kira decided you needed to see me close up.  Thanks babe.
Note the dog in the background.  She thinks she's getting a milkbone.

Happy Sunday!

Happy Fall

Happy First Day of Fall!  In honor of the season change, I finally busted out my mustard denim that I bought from Loft a long while back.  I love my polka dotted shirt from Gap.  It's very similar to one J Crew sold, but it was a fraction of the price.  Happy dance!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Mean People

 I'm not sure why people have to be so mean.  Especially at work.  Are their lives so miserable that they need to spread that to others?  I wonder.  What made my day all better were the fantastic hugs that I got from the best hugger in the world.  Take that mean people!
