Coffee Date

Good morning! If we were having coffee today, the first thing I would do is introduce you to my Momma which would only be fair since I'm sitting enjoying the view from her bedroom windows. I would admit to you that staying here always makes me realize I'm a little more of an outdoor girl than I think. Not a hiking, fishing, muddy sort of outdoor girl. And not if the temperature is under about 60 or about about 80. But a leisurely stroll, coffee on the porch, sunshine-y outdoor girl. The kind of girl that makes my parent's 5-acre property kind of alluring. Waking up to sun streaming through multiple windows, looking out on trees and lawns is awfully cheery. Still, I don't think there's anything better than waking up at my house. I love my house. Even if I get spoiled a little by my Momma while I'm here...

Breakfast in Bed

But let's face it, Bama Man spoils me an awful lot too...wow, I think you were just party to a pretty major personal discovery...Let's move on...

I'd also probably let you in on the clothing fast I started. It's not like I'm racking up big totals at the mall or anything, but I pass Plato's Closet and its magnetic pull everyday on the way to work. And I'm a little done with all the "I want a new cardigan," or the "I want a new spring-y skirt," or the "I want a pair of dress pants that are actually flattering," thoughts that I've been having lately while my dresser and closet remain full. So I'm on a mission. And I'd probably whine about it a little bit. Okay, okay, so it's only been a couple days and fine, I haven't even had the opportunity to buy anything, but the idea itself is getting to me, okay! I will admit that it has already been providing me with new insight, though. On Sunday I coupled my favorite pencil skirt that I wear all the time with a top and sweater that I never wear. And it looked pretty good (if I do say so myself). And then you would congratulate me for being thrifty resourceful. Right?

Now that you let me have my whine, I'll put my big girl panties on and get over myself. To make myself feel even better, I think I'll probably be showing you some new outfits I find in my old wardrobe, as they come along. Anyone want to join me?

Well, this has been so much fun, wish I could stay a little longer, but this little thrifty girl has to go to work. Enjoy your Tuesday!

Linking up here today!



  1. Awww, don't you just love visiting home and getting spoiled by your mom... it's the best feeling ever to spend some quality time chatting, shopping and relaxing :)

    And I admire you for fasting on clothes... it's hard, but I know what you mean about trying things that have been sitting in your closet forever and realizing that they actual go pretty good with something that you wear all the time... good luck!


  2. you are too funny....I have a pull towards anything vintage....I cant resist...I feel your pain! :)

  3. i'm a sunshine girl, too. i love camping, but not too muddy :) have fun being spoiled by your mama!!

  4. I can so relate, my closet is full but I keep finding bargins at consignment shops that are cheap and name-brand and oh so cute. But a bargin isn't a bargin if you don't need it. Right?
    Thanks for the "coffee."
