About ten minutes before my alarm went off this morning I awoke to the strangest sound. It was a rumbling sound and then there was this bright flashing light and more rumbling. Yes folks, for the first time in months we had ourselves a thunderstorm. I don't remember the last time we had a thunderstorm, I think it was maybe in July. And now we're getting some much needed rain too, so that's a good thing. I will accept being woken up before my alarm by a few minutes if this rain will help with the drought and make things better for the allergy sufferers (such as the Pants Monkey).
The Pants Monkey helped dress me today! No joke! I had a different outfit in mind originally and then when I heard it was going to be warm along with the rain, I decided one more day of bare legs before winter might be ok (I even shaved you guys!) So, I decided to wear my dress from Lynne (whom I still owe a thank you gift of some sort!). I pulled out this drape-y purple sweater she had sent along too and decided to try wearing it with the dress, though I had no idea how to style it at all. Mr. Monkey saw me with it just kind of hanging on my body and said, "are you supposed to wrap that around you somehow?" And I said, "I have no idea! I thought I'd try it out though" So, he tied it up in the back for me and I like the result. Especially when he said it made me look like Gloria on Modern Family. She's a good looking gal, I'll take it as a compliment!
I gotta say, something about this does make me feel kind of powerful and confident! It could be the shoes too, you never know. I don't know how much more I'll wear these shoes into the winter, they'll not be the most practical thing on ice and snow. I will just enjoy them while I still can!
