Forgot to Post

I totally forgot about this outfit! I hate this shirt... I will probably end up giving it away. (if you want it let me know). It's tight in the arms and is not long enough, which works for high waisted skirts but not for much else. Oh well! The outfit still turned out good, so that's a bonus!

The End of a Month

Can you believe it's the end of Summer!! It's amazing how little I feel like I accomplished! And how much stuff is coming up!
I've spent as much time as possible on my patio!! It's not as much as I've liked but some mornings when I have time I'll have my tea out there and go through my daily reads. That reminds me of a post I mad at the beginning of the month called 5 Things to Do in August. Now's as good a time as any to update and see how I did... It is the last day of the month.

1. Watch a movie made before 1970 - I watched The King and I! It was made in 1956. I love this movie! Kevin had never seen it either... though he played a game the entire time and didn't have a comment. I enjoyed it that's all that matters!
2. Try a new recipe... I was going to. And then Kevin made the cake for me instead! LOL He's a sweetheart and it was yummy!
3. Read a book - technically I read two! But it wasn't the book I wanted to finish. So oh well.

                   One. Rage of the Fallen by Joseph Delaney
                   Two. Grimalkin the Witch Assassin by Joseph Delaney

4. Take a photo walk. I had it planned and then it rained. But I am hoping to do one in September.
5. Write an Op-Ed. After figuring out what it was. I thought I would post it the very next day after I shared that original 5 in August post. But then I got scared and decided not to post it. But I did finally. It's out in the open and it's scary.
 And lastly... here's a look at the back of my hair! I am so in love with it!!
Happy Sunday!! Hope you had a good month of August too!!

A Break from the Challenge

I decided to take a break from the Challenge and wear a dress! I've missed my dressed! I love the swish of fabric around my knees and feeling like a princess!! Dresses tend to do that for me. I really need a Tutu!
Plus I am loving my hair! Seriously my hair is fabulous! I am curious to see how it will grow out and it will be to maintain!

Feels like Fall

I can't believe the change in weather! Suddenly got cold and windy and I really am not ready for summer to be over. I have not gotten enough sun yet!! However the change did give me an opportunity to wear this sweater! Which I LOVE!! I also just wish I didn't have to wear keys around my neck so I could wear a pretty necklace with this sweater.

The other day I sent Kevin a link asking him to pick up the ingredients for a cake. He took it as a could he buy the ingredient and make it. Which wasn't what I meant but it was nice to come home to a cake!! He did a fabulous job despite what he says! And everyone enjoyed it
It's called Skinny Raspberry Chocolate Cake and I found it here. However it isn't really a "skinny" or clean recipe as she claims. But it was moist and yummy! Kevin also liked the icing so much he tossed some blueberries on his plate and added the icing.
I enjoyed it! Plus I love having him home trying things out and cleaning up ;)
