In A Blink

It's all over.
Happy New Year to Everyone!

Linnea took this pic on Christmas Day with her new ipod touch.

Thanks for following me on this blogging journey.
I started this on a dark Winter day in 2010,
and have found it to be a huge blessing.
I had no idea I'd meet so many new friends in cyberspace.
Thank you to those of you who leave comments and endure my ramblings.
I treasure each of you!

Anyone else get melancholy on the first of the year?
The decorations all look a little silly,
clutter is at an ultimate high,
kids are sugared out,
kids are way off schedule,
rooms are messy,
and we all need a little space...

I'm ready to get back into a routine,
and not eager to have 3-4 more months of Winter...
I found these boots to help me through...
perfect for trudging through the slop back and forth to school,
a tad ridiculous looking,
but they put a smile on my face.

Did a little shopping with Christmas money,
and bought this little dress I've had my eye on....

I'll be honest,
it's not a dress.
It's labelled loungewear.
The hemline is a little goofy.
Linnea even said so.
I don't care.
I'm wearing it with striped leggings,
and when cold,
a sweater.

and puts a smile on my face.
It's the little things....


  1. Julie we entered the blogworld around the same time. I remember both of our first posts were called "here we go" right? I love visiting you here. I love your style both in fashion and decorating! Your blog has grown so much! Keep going...and I'm ready for everyone to go back to school/work Monday. I'm ready to have my house back a bit. The decorations are down...not away, but at least down! Happy New Year Julie!

  2. i look forward to more from you in 2011! and i wanted to say i love the "dress" and the outfit you have planned sounds perfect to me. i have a "shirt" i bought on clearance from anthro which is definitely supposed to be a pj/lounge shirt, but i wear it, love it, and it is comfy and cute!

  3. I couldn't agree more with you...totally off schedule, sugared out, and sad about going back to school ;), but once Monday is done we'll be as good as new! Love those boots and that lounge wear! Seems super comfy to me;) Have a great Sunday and thanks for joining me in bloggie land as well! Alyssa of Boston Bee

  4. Yep it sucks. Hoping to get the decorations down today. Maybe I'll do something crazy and rearrange the furniture...HA! Shake things up a bit. Happy New YEAR:)

  5. Ready for all the decorations to be gone and the kids to return to school!!! I need to clean and reorganize a bit!!:)
    Now if the weather would just cooperate and bring us an early spring.....
    Happy New Year to you!

  6. I got a pair of Bogs for Christmas 2009, and I LOVE them. I want another pair in the shorter style now. So warm and comfortable. And if you want that clothing item to be a dress, it's a dress!
