  Dress-C's, Skirt-F21, Sweater-Nordstrom, Shoes-F21 via Buffalo 

For me, with the end of a sickness always comes a ravenous appetite.
And I have been starving ALL day.

I am seriously considering sneaking some beer-battered chicken into the movies. 
By myself.

Don't judge me.

Dress and Belt-C's, Sweater-Nordstrom, Boots-Steve Madden

 Back in the Dressember saddle at last! So sorry for the absence, 
but I have literally been in bed with the worst of colds for the passed few days.
(Seriously, I could post pictures from Christmas weekend, 
but they would mostly just involve me laying on the couch
buried in blankets, eating smoked salmon,
while watching copious amounts of Lord of the Rings 
and Hallmark Hall of Fame movies.)
Not a pretty sight.

Anyways, still a bit under the weather, but back in the swing of things.
Sort of.

I hope you all had a happy and blessed Christmas!

to karaoke night.

Oh, Winter.

I am a five-year-old. 

I had to get a much needed carwash this afternoon because 
almost an entire bag of Chex Bold Party Mix
exploded in my car.
That's what I get for eating and driving.
I knew that filthy habit would catch up with me one of these days. 
Oh, and I lost my phone.

Yay, Saturday!

P.S. Sorry I missed day 16! It was one of those work clothes only days. So lame.

I put it on the fridge.

because I did.

It snowed a TON last night. Sadly, none of it stayed on the ground, 
but it's still bitter cold out here. 
Therefore, I felt it necessary to layer up to the extreme.
Two sweaters, two pairs of tights, and at least two skirts.

Happy chilly Sunday!

Guys, there's (patches of) snow on the ground!
This is kind of a big deal.
It's the perfect day to be wrapped in a blanket on the couch, sipping a nice warm cup of joe, and getting some homework done. 
Finished with school on tuuuessdayy!
