Well, I'm off to prepare for next year...

I'm out shopping at the grocery store!  I'm going to try and make the transition from vegetarian to vegan *wish me luck*!  Starting Jan 1st-- you know how we do... :-)

Inspiration Anyone...?

Hi Ladies
I am soooo ready for the new year!!!!  I spent sometime today working on my inspiration boards for 2011.  I have three-- one for style, one for work and one for home/family.  I only made it through the one for style today.  Take a look...

 Do any of you do this?

It's still a work in progress.  I don't like any blank space so I'll add a few more things over the next few days!

What inspires you?


Yes ma'am..rain, sleet, hail, snow!

This morning I woke up to a sheet of ice covered with a sprinkle of snow! I drove like 10 mph all the way to work.  This cold front is killin' me.  I live in the south for a reason, this is unnatural!
I haven't worn these boots in a minute, I love them they're very comfortable but they make my feet look huge!  I went to Target last night to pick up a gift card for my 'Secret Santa' recipient and got this entire outfit. Yep, shirt-sweater and skirt! I think I was the only person at work with a skirt on today. Yes ma'am rain, sleet, hail, snow!

It's Toastmasters Baby!!!!

Toastmasters Speech-a-thon
Hiya ladies--

I don't know if I've ever mentioned this, but I am currently working toward my competent communicator certificate in Toastmasters.  This was my second speech entitled How to Fake It.  Don't let the title distract you, this speech was about how to fake confidence, when you are running low!!

It went well overall, but for some reason I was REALLY nervous.  I wasn't even this nervous during my first speech!

I decided against the black dress and went with separates instead.
Cardigan-Target, Shirt- NY&Co., Skirt NY&Co., shoes (not shown)-Nine West.


Dressing Room Drama & the 1st snow of the Season!

So I went to the mall to do a bit of shopping and I when I left I walked out into this:
We got snow today {insert sad face here}

Anyways, this is what I went to the mall for--  a dress for the Toastmasters International holiday party.  I like this one, but I'm not sure.  Whatcha think?

here's a slightly better shot...

I have to do two speeches so I want to look nice, but be comfortable at the same time.  I will really be comfortable with my Spanx on!!!!
