Do Geese attack? (selfie concerns)

Hello friends! Happy Thursday!

My second favorite day of the week is Thursday! Yay! How is everyone doing?? I hope you all are having a great week and have some fun weekend plans 🙂

I thought I would share a couple of favorite outfits from this week and my concerns taking pictures this morning: DO GEESE ATTACK??

This morning I was at a location close to my employment (same suburb) and this area has a little creek, lots of trees, and a couple of pretty brick bridges. I love this area, it’s so pretty in the middle of huge office buildings…interesting huh? So I got out of my car to take pictures and there are several geese by me and a weird thought pops in my mind…do geese attack? Should I be worried?

I mean, I’m normally a very cautious person, (except on the freeway); I don’t get close to Bison in Yellowstone National Park or hang over the edge of the cliff at Grand Canyon National Park, but I don’t quite know how to deal with geese. Should I be cautious? Are they going to chase me? Granted I don’t think they’re vicious right? Are they going to squack me to death? Will they flap their wings and blow me away? Not likely but these are odd thoughts running through my mind as I take pictures! Does anyone else think like this or am I the only one?? LOL The things that pop in my mind would probably concern other people!

Anyway here are a couple of my favorite outfits this week. My first one happened by accident! I found this darling spring plaid shirt at Target and realized I have earrings (Also Target) to match, then I thought about wearing white jeans (JCPenney) to make the color in the shirt pop, but it was a little chilly so I wondered what jacket to pick…..my eyes set on my destroyed jean jacket from Forever21 and then I realized I have a coral bag (JCPenney) that perfectly matches the shirt and earrings. The only thing I missed is coral lipstick, interesting I don’t have that color….I’m not sure if it would match my skin tone but now I need to find one right?? It’s a need….

Today (geese picture episode) I have to dress more professional as I have meetings with adults (LOL) but I’m still wearing a pop of color -my red pants (AnnTaylor- old) with my black/white gingham shirt by Express and tassel earrings also Express. I added my black moto jacket by OldNavy because it’s again a little cloudy and chilly 😦 but even though it’s cloudy I still dress my personality with the pop of color and fun print!

YAY FOR FUN PRINTS RIGHT??

Everyone have a happy Thursday!

G&R

Hello Friends!

So on my hour and a half commute tonight, I decided I DON’T have enough Guns n Roses songs on my iPhone…LOL

That got me thinking and coincidentally I wore my GnR outfit today 🙂

I have ring tones for all my children…my oldest son Elliot-his ring tone is Back in Black -ACDC because it reminds me of when he was in high school and practice his electric guitar down in his room. I loved hearing him learn some tunes. It was especially fun when I knew the songs and got to start to sing along. I sang to Heart: Barracuda and G&R: Sweet Child o’ Mine. That brings back happy memories (Elliot is married, has kids of his own now, and enjoys other hobbies like destroying people in racquetball. Elliot’s favorite music seems to be alternative.

My oldest daughter Callie; her ring tone is G&R Sweet Child o’ Mine….for some reason it’s always made me think of her. I looked up the year of Guns n Roses album when that song was released and it was the year Callie was born, so I love this song for her (she’s kind of a rebel like me), and she has the prettiest eyes. Callie’s always been fond of country music, don’t know where she got that 😉

My son Connor has a wide range of music he likes, but when he was a teenager worked real hard to help me develop an “interest” in rap music. I just didn’t like it, but would listen with him in the car. He created a special CD for me, just certain rap songs he thought I would like, and actually I did. Connor’s ring tone is Tupac- Dear Mama.

McKenna is my youngest (I do have a younger son, Clayton; he died at birth so we haven’t had a chance to bond over music yet in this life and I don’t know if it will be important to me in the next, so there ya go) living child and she moved from favorite artist to favorite artist with Justin Bieber and David Archuleta near the beginning and Taylor Swift dominating almost all other areas, so Taylor Swift – We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together-puts a smile on my face.

So there you go, a description of my (adult) children’s ring tones and my thought process while driving home from work tonight in bumper to bumper traffic trying to find the best songs on my iPhone while not taking my eyes off the car in front of me…it was tricky my friends! In closing, Welcome to the Jungle, Paradise City, and Sweet Child o’ Mine are my favorite Guns N Roses songs….here is my outfit letting everyone know.

Being sick is dramatic

Hello friends!

I thought I would share what is going on in my life today….I am sick…sick…sick….it’s no fun and I feel like I’m going to die (that’s a little dramatic right?) but seriously my head hurts and I can’t even sleep I’m so miserable…and it’s no fun being sick. I would rather feel better. I would rather be shopping at Target or working….

Can I choose door number two? Is that the door where I’m not sick?? I don’t even mind going to work, that’s surely better than being sick. Just for future reference, I would rather work every day than be sick. (Just putting that out in the universe).

So since I’m so sick that I can’t sleep, I’m here on my couch (although the remotes are too far away to reach) and thought I’d share a fun look I found on IG the other day. It’s a pink/red floral skirt combined with a ruffly pink/black sweater and black/white plaid purse from Target-WhoWhatWear! Isn’t it darling? I couldn’t find the sweater or bag in my local store (earlier this week when I wasn’t on my deathbed-dramatic I know) but found them on Instagram and ordered online. The sweater isn’t here yet but will be next Monday and we are going out to dinner for Valentine’s Day so I could wear the obligatory RED/PINK then and totally be on point (yet there is a large dose of black which is a little rebellious and not so Vday obedient) ha ha so check out your local Target/WhoWhatWear section (I can’t cause I don’t have the energy to dress, take a shower, reach for the remotes, eat, or leave the house) but if you’re like me, you could always shop online!

Hopefully soon I won’t feel like this and be back to my normal happy shopping fashion color fun trendy self!

So please send prayers my way that soon I will not be sick and back to being happy??
