Robe, Sweats, Cords, Sweats, Robe

That about sums up my day!

Have a good night!

No, I won't do that! It is still 2 hours before bedtime, so I will talk a little more!

I started today by sleeping was one of those days where nothing was planned; I woke up at 8 with every intention of getting up. I rolled over and before I knew it, it was 9:45!

A couple of lazy hours in my robe; reading journals and blogs, planning dinner. I dressed into my sweats and Ben and I took a leisurely walk. It was warmer than yesterday but there was still a nip in the air. The leaves are falling off of the trees before they have even had a chance to change color; I am not ready for winter.

After we got home , it was time for lunch and a shower. We were only running an errand to one store; I declared a no make up or hair dryer Sunday!

Now, I am not one that worries about running into others I know while I am not wearing make-up. I was a tad bit hesitant, however, to "bare" it all here. But, what the heck, we all look better with make-up. I figure it won't hurt to share me au naturale. No, not naked; even though it feels that way!

My sweater is quite old, purchased 4 years ago at Catwalk. I found it cute and cozy. I think it has been a couple of years since I have worn it. I have a nondescript cami underneath.

The cords are from JCrew. I ordered them online in the winter of 2007. I could not fit into them when they first arrived at the house. That was when I was in denial that I was starting to gain a few pounds back, and was still ordering my old size. I like them; I don't love them.

The shoes? For lack of a better term, these are shi* kickers! I throw them on when I need to run a quick errand. Hey, I showered at least. I never promised you heels every day!

The pictures were taken outside of Buon Giorno which is a lovely little Italian Bistro/store. We went to purchase the best Italian sausage and marinara sauce. Ben made a great sauce tonight for dinner!

I spent the afternoon preparing some items I can pack for lunch that are not salad. I made a butternut squash soup, and roasted some butternut squash, acorn squash and sweet potatoes. I tossed that with some lentils for lunch tomorrow. Can't wait to see the nutritional stats on that baby!

Just an update on yesterday's activities...I did bake all day, but ran to the store...after a shower, and yes, I did change out of the robe! A long sleeved tshirt and a pair of jeans was thrown on, with the aforementioned shi*kickers. It was a quick trip and I was home in sweats baking the night away. I ended up with Ginger Chewies - fabulous. Sweet potato cake that I tasted today - delicious. And the best Golden Grand Marnier Cake! It is all headed to the office tomorrow where it will no doubt be appreciated and devoured!

It was a lovely relaxing weekend. Hope yours was a good one!

  4. I need me summa them sh*t kickers! I used to wear makeup every day and then last spring, something was in the air that made my eyes water all day long. I stopped wearing makeup because I looked like such a mess all the time. Then I just never bothered to start back up again! Now I wouldn't mind having some mascara on or something but have to go buy some new after all this time. (me me me)

    That is a really cute sweater!
