Actually I just thought no one would be the wiser.
Some days (most actually) I don't see a soul my entire work day. I thought today would be one of those days, until my boss walked in around 2:00.
Truth be told I went home at lunch and put the jeans on because I just wasn't very comfortable.
Tomorrow I'll try a little harder...maybe.
THANKSGIVING BREAK I AM SO FREAKING THANKFUL FOR YOU!

and that's okay because it's Target right?
(without feet)...and I thought that was kind of weird.
But then yesterday I noticed them at J.CREW....
Is this the new trend for pajamas?
I will not be participating, can you even imagine? I mean look at that jcrew models ass, that is not flattering can you even imagine what they would look like on a normal person?
I'm pretty sure if I were a guy I'd have it written into my wedding vows no weird one piece pjs. ever. Maybe guys think they are hot though...I'll have to check with G when I get home...but I'm just not seeing it...
I'd admit I am far from the most fashionable or trendy person (there is a reason you'll never see outfit of the day posts around here) but I just don't get the function or the excitement of these. I sure wouldn't spend $80 on them!
Do you own one piece pjs?
Are they on your Christmas list this year?
Please tell me the appeal!

The 3-day took so much out of me both physically and mentally that I've been going to bed at ridiculously early hours.
Every night riiiight before I fall asleep I think about how I didn't blog but the goal doesn't seem worth dragging my sleepy self out of bed and turning on the computer. So, I've just accepted the fact that this isn't my month for every day posting. Maybe I'll try again next month?
I'm so excited to share pictures from the 3Day and to write about my experience but you'll have to wait at least another day. :)
In other news...I can't help but sign up for all the blog swaps during this time of the year! I seriously love getting things in the mail and I may take my job of putting together the perfect swap present a little too seriously!
Here are some good ones I've signed up for!
Laura at Luckiest in Love had the ornament swap last year and it was so much fun I can't wait to participate again! Who doesn't love new Christmas ornaments?
Then there are three fun lady's hosting a Secret Santa Swap! I love a good surprise so I think this one should be exciting! Head on over to Everyday AEM to learn more about it!
Are there any more fun swaps I'm missing out on??

I'm still not sure that I have processed the magnitude of it all.
But, I did it. I walked 60 miles in 3 days and it was hard. and amazing.
get ready because the posts and the pictures will be coming...

I got this print from Paper Parasol on etsy that I just love! The colors are perfect and it looks great as the center piece of my gallery wall (it's not finished yet or I'd show you pictures, soon though I promise!)
I got this elephant (for the gallery wall) and spray painted him! He was pretty easy to put together and I just love him!
I got this cover for my Kindle as well as a small bag that I use for pens for school in the same print, from from Britgal Designs! It's seriously too cute and makes me smile the entire time I'm reading! (obviously I have a think for elephants)
I got this super cute braided scarf from putapuredukes on etsy she has a tutorial on her blog to make the single braided scarf it's really cute too. But, when she showed this one and put it in her shop so I could just buy it instead of making it myself I snatched it right up (sometimes I like to diy but sometimes I just rather pay someone else and save myself the headache...)! And I'm so glad I did because it's so cute!
Have you bought anything off the internet lately? I seriously love Pintrest it has been a terrible thing for my wallet but a great thing for the economy, just doing my part!! :)
ps. Abbi and I are heading down to Dallas today to get ready for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure if you could send us some good no blister, no rain vibes we'd truly appreciate it!

I can tell you before we start it was a BIG FAT FAIL. dangit!

I have apparently turned into Scrooge.
I got home from class last night and turned on my porch light and waited (and waited) for the doorbell to ring.
At 8:00 it finally rang, and then it rang again, and while I was walking the 7 steps from the couch to the candy bowl next to the door it rang 11 more times.
I am not even kidding you the two children at my door rang the doorbell at least 12 times in the 30 seconds it took me to hand off the dog and answer the door.
The kids were probably 7 (a girl) and 10 (a boy) too old to ring the doorbell that many times. I have no idea what they were dressed up as because my head was vibrating from all the ringing.
I resisted the urge to give them a lesson in trick-or-treating manners, and also the urge to give them one piece of candy.
Instead I gave them a handful of candy, looked for their parents (I saw none), shut my door, and promptly turned off my porch light…
They ruined my Trick-or-treating sprit.
Of course I made the little dog dress up….
Isn’t she just the cutest little Hippo! Here is her costume from last year, she makes a really cute bug too…
Don’t forget it is NaBloPoMo time you can win prizes for posting every day in November! I made it last year, but my posting has been waaay more sporadic in 2011 so let’s see if I can make it though…
