It's Curtains for You!

Rand's Daily Outfit Assessment: "You look like curtains...draperies." At first I thought he was referring to the pattern on my skirt, which I thought was a little uncalled for, but then he leaned over, grabbed my necklace and continued, "if I pull on this, will your sweater close the rest of the way?" b/c he thought my necklace looked like a curtain pull. hahahaha. He definitely keeps me in check in the mornings. And he's been feisty lately.

What I Wore While Watching Ice Age on Tivo:

  • purple lace edge tank (Lane Bryant)
  • purple cardi (Target)
  • tan/purple/green paisley skirt (Target)
  • cream/gold suede pumps (Chinese Laundry)
  • goldtone tassel necklace (thrifted Goodwill)
  • goldtone/green leaf brooch (thrifted Goodwill)

What I Ate At the Table...After Two Weeks at the Coffee Table:

  • breakfast: 1 c Fiber One, 1 c. unsweetened Almond Breeze, 2 oz blueberries
  • lunch: almond butter & carrot sandwich, yellow squash, 1 c. cherries
  • snack: very small banana, SoyJoy
  • dinner: garlic shrimp pasta, extra spinach under the pasta, 2 glasses white wine
  • dessert: microwave cake

What I Did After Maria Got Stuck At Work:

Maria and I were supposed to go to the gym this evening, but at the last minute she called and cancelled b/c she was stuck at work. Normally I would use this as an excuse to continue sitting on the couch, but with a little encouragement from Rand, I got up and sit some step aerobics in the living room. I really gave myself a good workout. My heart rate was way up and I was sweating!

Total for the Day: 1704 calories, 5 glasses of water, 30 minutes of step

Well, you definitely don't look like Carol Burnett in her Gone with the Wind skit... ;)

Seriously, you look cute! I particularly like your brooch.

Brooke said...

I see what he's talking about, but I bet that necklace was perfect when you took the cardigan off.

As always, love your colors!

Beth said...

You look fabulous in purple!!

Sher said...

Yep Rand is a keeper! LOL!

Lovely violet outfit today!

Honeybunches of Roses said...

I like Rand! Good personality :-)

Love, love, love the shoes. Happy Friday!

Jess said...

That's a really cool necklace! I can find no flaws in that much purple :D

I love step- it's a serious workout (physically and mentally- it can get really confusing!). Just don't trip off the bench- I did the other day but luckily did no lasting damage to my ankle.

Kasmira said...

If I pull your necklace, can I have it?

Great find!

MissAmy said...

Can I just say that I love Rand's assessments? Maybe he should have his own fashion blog LOL. XOXO, MissAmy

Struggler said...

MissAmy makes a great point - could Rand do some guest blogs?

And are you sure he said 'will your sweater close'? For Beloved Husband, the question would definitely have been about garments opening, not closing :)

I need to try the garlic shrimp pasta recipe - looks great. (Roasted broccoli is on our menu again this week, thanks to you!).

Sheila said...

I love you in purple! Not a huge fan of the skirt's pattern...a little too small and fussy for my taste. I love that necklace!

Good for you for getting off the couch! (says the woman who's done nothing all day, haha)

Tina said...

Kari - HAHAHA. I always loved that skit.

Brooke - Thanks!

Beth - thanks! I have added some to my wardrobe this season, otherwise there hasn't been too much purple.

Sher - thanks! I think he is a keeper too.

Honeybunches - yeah, he's a good match for me. Thanks! I need to take them to the shoe doctor to be reheeled. :(

Jess - yikes! I am glad you didn't have any serious injuries. I was pretty sore the next day.

Kasmira - thanks! I'll keep you in mind if I find that I'm not really wearing it anymore.

MissAmy and Struggler - since you guys proposed it, I asked him, but he steadfastly refuses to do a guest post. And know that he knows that I've posted his comments, I bet I won't get as many. LOL

Struggler - oh yes, try out the pasta. The link should be in the post. It is SO GOOD. And if you are a fan of spicey (I'm a wimp) add a little more red pepper flakes. Delish.

Sheila - I don't wear this skirt too ften, b/c it can be toget a look where the whole thing isn't fussy, but every once in a while it comes out of the closet.

Work With What You've Got said...

I am wearing that same necklace, almost exactly. I got it in Austin last weekend, at Goodwill.

*cue freaky music*

Clearly I love it.
