Project 365 Days 2-8

Phew!  It's been quite awhile since I posted!  Hang with me while I catch up!

Day 2/365 - January 2

Nothing like popcorn and a movie on one of the last day's of Christmas break!

Day 3/365 - January 3

We had driven into the metroplex to pick up a new lens for my camera and after exiting the store, we immediately snapped it on and tried it out.  Right away I noticed an improvement in the quality of the photos (the natural light in the car didn't hurt either).  You can even see remnants of lunch on Amelia's face ;-)

Day 4/365 - January 4

Eerie, low-laying fog was visible just as the sun broke over the horizon.  On days like this, if I squint my eyes a bit, I can pretend I'm on the coast, looking out to the ocean (and there's an island not far off in the distance ;-)

Day 5/365 - January 5

We were out to dinner at a fabulous little Mexican restaurant near our house and Ava was doing what she normally does; she takes the salt and pepper, and this case, also packets of sugar, and makes them into princes, princesses, kings and queens, fairies and dragons and all other kinds of magical beings and entertains herself while waiting for our food to arrive!

Day 6/365 - January 6

While not the greatest composition, I love the smile on Amelia's face here.  She called me out to the foyer with my camera so I could take pictures of her dancing and spinning with her doll.  This girl is turning into quite the princess and most days can be found with a princess dress on over her clothes.

Day 7/365 - January 7

I was utterly shocked to find the fairies had taken off in Jason's yellow Lamborghini to go joyriding.  I thought fairies were supposed to be good; not up to no good!

Day 8/365 - January 8

A pleasant day + Daddy's day off = family time in the hot tub.

Until next time...

Favorite Things: Skinny Jeans

Ok.  Seriously.  I think I've been waiting my entire life for these to come back into style.  When they first appeared on the scene a few seasons ago, I was skeptical.  I had really begun to love my straight leg jeans (and I still do) and embrace that look.  Skinny jeans were quite a departure from that look.  Could I do it?  

Oh yes I could.  

Because I love tall boots.  And skinny jeans (or "jeggings") look fabulous with tall boots.  Or short boots.  Boots with a heel.  Boots without a heel.  And in the winter, almost all my footwear are boots.  


And in the summer?  Well, in the summer I plan to wear them with ballet flats (which are hard for me to do, being a petite woman, I really want a heel on my shoe) and although I haven't seen it paired together much, I think a kitten heel would look beautiful with a jegging/skinny jean.  

And then when I need to run up to the barn, I can slip on my barn boots or riding boots over the jeans with no bunching up of the jeans under or on top of the boot, ya know what I mean?  So, I should be a happy camper, right?  Well, I was.  Until I received a flyer in the mail from Ann Taylor Loft showing "the new silhouette for spring"...

Oh yes.  The wide leg jean is back.  Well I'm not welcoming it.  In fact, I refuse to wear it!  And I will instead be wearing one of the 12 pairs of skinny jeans I bought last year...Who knows, maybe by Fall, the skinny jean will be back "in" again ;-)

Until next time...
