Finally Floor Tile

After work Rand and I headed off to Home Depot to pick up floor tile for the new kitchen. Man, that stuff weighs a TON. I could only carry one measly box of 11 tiles at a time. Oh, did I mention that I carried them all in during a major thunderstorm? The tornado sirens were going off and I was getting drenched as I walked back and forth from the car to the house with them. Ah...the joys of home ownership. :)

What I Wore While Buying Floor Tile in a Tornado:

2010-09-09 combo

  • black skirt (Lane Bryant)
  • purple ruffle shirt (Ross)
  • black heels (Nicole Miller)*
  • grey vest (Lane Bryant)
  • wooden bangle (Lane Bryant)
  • earrings (Dana Buchman via Kohls)

* I just realized that I stuck a pic of my brown Manolos in the combo pic on accident. Oops!

What I Ate That Sounded Fancier Than It Was:

2010-09-09 food

We came back from visiting my parents this weekend with a cooler full of food. And by visit I mean staying some place that wasn't a construction zone and actually had running water, etc. And my cooler full of food I mean that we cleaned out their fridge to "help" them since they were going out of town. One of the things we brought back was smoked pheasant breast that I turned into "chicken" salad. Delish! Everyone at work thought I was so fancy, but basically it really was just a chicken salad sandwich. I also came back with a bunch of pears and apples that we picked off a neighbor's tree and some yummy (and healthy) pear bread that I made.
  • breakfast: pear bread (2 points), coffe with cream (1 point)
  • lunch: smoked chicken and pheasant salad sandwich (5 points?), carrots (0 points), apple (1 point)
  • snack: pear muffin (1 point), pear (1 point), Cliff Z bar (2 points)

Tina -- Your blog is so fun to read. Outfits, food, home renovation, and humor all rolled up into one little package!

Love the purple and grey tones in your outfit. Very chic.

I really like those earrings. When you get tired of them you know who to give them

You look gorgeous! I love the vest and the skirt looks like it has circles on it too but I can't tell if that's from the camera.

Sorry the tile thing was a fiasco but YAY for free food from your parents! :)
