Yikes, stripes!

Fruit Stripe Gum!  Anyone else remember that commercial from the 90's?  No?  Just nerds like me, huh?  Oh well.

Pretty simple outfit today!  Sometimes simple is good.  I was going to wear this sweater for black day during the Neutrals color challenge, but then I ended up getting that dress that I wore instead.  I really love this sweater though, it is possibly the softest one I own.

So of course, now the Pants Monkey has come down with his own version of this lovely head cold. I feel for him, it's not fun dealing with colds at this time of the year.  I *think* I am more or less on the path to good health now at least.  And hey, there are 10 days until Christmas as of today, plenty of time for him to be feeling better by then too.

Speaking of there only being 10 more days until Christmas - everyone done with their shopping?  I'm not, but I will be after this weekend I think, which gives me an entire week to wrap and fun things like that!

Crazy eyes in this last picture!  I was going for my "I'm super awake and hopped on caffeine" look.  Or something like that!  Just over a week until I have a nice long extended break from work for the holidays.  I can't wait!  I think it's time for a haircut too.  Might do that after work today and then I'll have super short hair again!  We'll see where the day takes me!

  1. I love stripe sweaters nowadays. Yours look great on you.

  2. Cute sweater! Stripes are my favorite pattern ever, especially in sweaters. I do remember that gum! It was so good for the first 10 seconds and then had no flavor.

  3. That sweater looks super cozy for cold days like today! I remember the Fruit Stripes gum commercial, you aren't alone :) Hope everyone starts feeling better so you're all healthy for Christmas! I'm trying to get over a cold myself :)


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
