Can I just say that after 28 years of life and 13 years of working, one would think that I would be used to the idea and the act of work---so why my friends, do I fight it every single day! I just do not understand. Every night I enjoy my time with the husband, watching television or reading my books and it’s so pleasant that I avoid falling asleep because I know what is happening next—work!
So falling asleep around eleven, which used to be ten but now since I have the iPad, I lay there surfing or reading for at least an hour after hubs is out. Fast forward a couple hours to 6:30am---alarm is singing sweet nothings in my ear but I can’t get up. After all, who is excited for work and how can I leave my little puppy that is snuggled up to me so nicely. It’s so cozy and warm. Alarm again---after the snooze button gets some love another three to four times, I finally grumble into the shower.
This sequence of events has become the norm. I used to be up at the first alarm and getting ready before the hubs---now he is fully dressed enjoying his cup of joe before I even reluctantly pull myself from the beddie-bye. So when my dear friends will I be used to this idea of work. I am starting to think that it’s never going to come. I fear that for the next thirty to forty years I am going to be grumbling to the shower every morning. Am I alone here?? Do any of you spring from the bed like a kid on Christmas?? If so, what’s your secret---please share!
Ok--Done with the Rant and on to the outfit----this is the skirt I got at Banana Republic this weekend for a steal! I love how it fits, it was so comfy! My only complaint is that the pockets flare a bit so I think I may sew them shut.
Skirt: Banana Republic
Top: Old Navy
Necklace: Charlotte Russe
This necklace was ordered from The Zen Muse---it's a lotus flower with a little plate that says Breathe. I really like this not only because of the way it looks but also because of what the lotus flower represents. The lotus flower starts as a small flower down at the bottom of a pond in the mud. It grows up to the top of the waters' surface continually moving towards the light. Once it come to the surface of the water the lotus flower begins to blossom and turn into a beautiful flower. Within Hinduism and Buddhism the lotus flower has become a symbol for awakening to the spiritual reality of life. In modern times, the lotus flower represents life in general. What great meaning to be reminded of every time I wear a necklace.
I was very impressed with the seller and their other products. Sometimes I feel there are so many great Etsy sellers that aren't heard of so if you have a favorite, please share!
Hump Day is practically here---can I get a Ya-hoo!! :-)
