And yes, I know my blog is horrifying. Not that I don't like the girl power background, I just never updated the rest of my design so its just not flowing at all. Maybe tomorrow I can fix that, but I just felt like I should tell you all that I know my blog is, at present, borderline visually offensive.

The Pressure... and a tube top

Before I decided to start blogging again I had all sorts of (I thought) good ideas of what I could blog about, but now, nothing. Maybe its the pressure of feeling like I need to be profound or funny or clever, or maybe its writers block. Whatever it is, its annoying.
So again I sit here, today with 6 loads of laundry to fold, but with a clean kitchen this time, and here I am trying to think of something to blog about that isn't "I'm always behind."

I just got a fabulous dress from Ross last week, but I have to tack down some elastic from the smocking and take it in a little so it will fit, and that's next on my list after I finish this and fold my laundry. I hope I get that far. One question, in case anyone besides me reads this: I found a super cute tube top the other day. I have no intentions of ever wearing a tube top by itself, for several reasons which you'd all appreciate me for. But, I am seriously toying with the idea of wearing it over a t-shirt. I tried it on over a white half sleeve tee and I thought it was super cute. It is white and grey striped so I could wear it with white or grey, or maybe even another color, if I was feeling crazy, and I imagine it looking cute with a t-shirt, half-sleeve, or long sleeve shirt. My questions is this: is it a total fashion no-no to wear a tube top over a shirt? It is a billowy woven cotton, and of course I would wear it over a fitted knit shirt... I don't really follow fashion trends, and I don't know or normally care about these sorts of rules, but before I break down and wear it, I thought I would see what you fashionista's have to say. But if I keep thinking about it, I might just break down and buy it anyway.

Begin Again, Again

I want to start blogging again. Its 2:40pm already and I still haven't taken a shower (I probably shouldn't admit that I am still in my pj's, too). Plus there are 3 loads of laundry to fold and lunch dishes in the sink, so I have no time to type anything funny or meaningful. So let me just say this: I love corduroy. If I could have only 1 fabric for all my projects, that would be it. Curtains, couches, pants, skirts, jackets, throw pillows, bedspreads, tablecloths or runners, the possibilities are endless, really...
I know, what a profound thought to re-begin blogging.
