Gasp, no Inspiration Monday again. Love the look the birds picked, but I couldn't quite pull it together while being out of town this weekend. We had a great, though cold, weekend away! It's hard to be back at work today, Mr. Monkey was smart and took today off as well, I wasn't quite that smart! Anyway, what helps today is while I'm not doing Inspiration Monday, I do have something else fun to share!
A little while back, the fabulous Lynne of Practical Paralegalism emailed me and said she had a new with tags Michael Kors shirt that she bought from Ross and couldn't use and wanted to know if I'd like it. It was exactly my size, so I said, sure! Then her daughter got sick and all those life things that get in the way sometimes and I was rather busy myself, so I kind of forgot about it. I got home from work on Thursday and there was a large box sitting in front of my door. I'm like, ok all my jewelry came, this must be for the Pants Monkey. I picked it up and saw it was for me and it was from Lynne - and it was heavy. I'm thinking holy cow! I went inside and opened it up and it was like Christmas! Not only did she send me the Michael Kors shirt, she also sent a few other items, including an amazing dress I can't wait to share because it fits me like a glove!
So anyway, I sure hope I'm not embarrassing her too much - but this was one of the nicest things anyone has ever done, I hope to repay the favor soon! In honor of Lynne and her fantasticness, I named my outfit today "The Lynne". I am wearing the Michael Kors shirt, some nice dress pants and dressy shoes and I topped it off with my obi belt from Megan Mae, because Miss Lynne is a huge fan of Megan Mae items - you should see how ladyfriend styles them, let me tell you, she's super creative. And this might just be a new purse I may have bought up north this weekend. Cough, really need that shopping ban now, cough.
So anyway, Lynne, I know I've already thanked you via Twitter and your blog, but I had to give you another shout out here, thank you, thank you, you are the best!! I can't wait to show off the other items that worked out well for me!!
Some more photography challenges this morning. I remember having these same issues last Fall too. So, I added this one from indoors as soon as I got to work today, but I didn't have my tripod so it didn't turn out too much better. Yeah, first world blogger problems! I just don't want to use a big SLR camera, I really like the portability of my point and shoot! Might be time for an upgrade though. We'll see. Happy Monday! And PS, even though I'm not over there today, go visit the two birds to see all the Inspiration Monday looks!
