Plain Jane

March 30, 2015



Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty full, with one thing to the next happening, sick twins and hubby but with just a bit of shopping and loads of coffee in between.



Before my hubby caught the “cold” from our twins he caught these photos near a walking trail and stream by our house and in the process of setting up he made mention that I looked so “plain jane” as he added that I needed to have had a red necklace or headband to accent the shoes. He proceeded to ask where my beaded thrifted red necklace was that I wore earlier that day to which I responded “it broke” and I didn’t have much time to look at jewelry while shopping for pants and shirt and that stores didn’t carry the right “red” headbands. With much protest he gave up and just shot the pictures.  I told him I would name this post in honor of this thoughts and words to which he smirked and said “really.” So here I am looking “plain Jane” with no accessories save a bracelet; however showing off my new shoes.




Aren’t they cute little red tennie loafers? I actually had my eyes on these for a month at Marshall’s and my hubby actually like them when he first saw them too. So alas these shoes were on my mind for weeks until we finally went back to Marshall’s and there they were, still on display in all their red up glory.  It was meant to be. I would say it was a good investment as I followed the shopping rule of “if it remains on your mind after 24 hours (I think) then get them” well these were more like weeks and were maybe a little under $25.




Oh and about my hubby, I must give a big shout out to him as he has been talking and promoting my blog like crazy to his family members and co-workers. He even has a best friend/co-worker beginning a blog because of how awesome blogging is.  My hubby and his brother hope to follow suit. How cool is that?
