It’s Friday. Yippee! Only two more weeks until Winter break. This really has new meaning to me now… Especially this year. I’ve been at my current position for one year now and oh my, how things have changed. But I couldn’t be happier. I love my job, even if some days are stressful. Who doesn’t have stress at their job from time to time?
Tonight is our staff Christmas party and I always freak out a little when it comes to these events. Last night, middle and I went shopping so I could find something appropriate to wear. And really, appropriate in my mind only. According to some of my colleagues, some people show up in jeans. So really anything goes.
My feelings are that I don’t get to dress up all too often and the nature of my job doesn’t allow me to wear heels – not that I would anyways, but that’s not the point. So something like this comes up – I’m going to use the opportunity to get a little gussied up! (I love that expression!)
We ended up at Dress Barn. At first I was slightly put off by the fact that I like the store and found so many things to choose from. I always looked at it as a store for older women (no offense to anyone) I guess. I actually texted my mom and told her that I’m finally getting old, older in any case! 🙂
Here is the outfit I ended up with.
And some pretty, shiny new heels, with an actual heel and not just a wedge! They are so comfortable. At least comfortable for heels.
I found some other pretty tops and may have to go back soon. After all, I will need something to wear to hubby’s company Christmas party too. 🙂
Anyways, let’s get to the fun stuff for this Friday! It’s fill in time with Hilary!
Sometimes I think _____
Do you love ____ as much as I do?
Black Friday _______________
__________________ is my favorite thing about long holiday weekends.
1. Sometimes I think and wonder what my life would be like if we had never come to the U.S.. It’s not something I can actually imagine!
2. Do you love sushi as much as I do?
3. Black Friday should be abolished! I have never gone Black Friday shopping and never will. I wish, my mom didn’t have to go to work Thanksgiving evening and work all night.
4. Relaxing and spending time with my family is my favorite thing about long weekends. Oh, and sleeping in is great too.
Ok. Your turn! How would you finish the statements. Play along or just leave a comment with your answers. I’d love to know.
Have an awesome, super-duper weekend!!!
P.S. You may have noticed that the look of my blog has changed again! I had some issues with the theme I used previously and it messed up some things so I switched back to an older one but I really hadn’t been happy with that one anymore. This one, I totally fell in love with – it’s just so clean and white and spacious! I think it makes my pictures stand out nicely! What do you think?
