A Kinda Christmas Fashion Tale

by - December 13, 2017

10 facts about my week so far

1- I had full intentions of doing a fun fashion post for the Christmas Sweater themed link up on TBB today and I was super excited.  I was going to take the pictures while baking my butter tarts.  But clearly I'm not baking butter tarts in this picture.

2- Energy is at a minimum so long story short, I ended up scrambling to do these pictures last night when the lighting was horrible and I was feeling blah after another couple days spent on the couch with intermittent bursts of productivity.

3- Then I couldn't find my Christmas Sweater that lights up so I settled on the oversized cozy sweater that I did just purchase for Christmas.  I may wear it everyday if I keep feeling this way.  I can't stop coughing. I even did while taking the pictures, see?  #chickenwing.  You can find the sweater here. 

4- I don't have the man-flu or anything....but I haven't slept a whole night in a week and I can't stop coughing or sniffling and am tired all the time.  Here's to hoping tonight is the night. 


5- To provide evidence (because science) of my craptastic cough, check out the cute kids' piano recital from Sunday and how awesome it was that I forgot a cough candy for Will's performance and coughed for half of it. (and likely peed a little) (too much info?) (oops).  At least it didn't distract him?  Side note- it goes Lucia, then my niece Kinsey then the other niece, Adelyn and it was her first time performing and she was soooo nervous but completely and totally adorable, then it's Mr. Willis.

6- Had to deal with some tough stuff at school this week.  Long story short, Willis was accused of bullying.  To summarize:  All is good, he wasn't bullying but there are definitely some lessons that can be taken away.  

7- In dealing with the headaches at school, I did spend a lot of time just chatting with Willis and getting him to open to me.  I think he finally sees how important it is that he talks with me so I can back him up, because no matter what side he falls on, I'm going to be there for him to help him through it.  Makes me all weepy remembering this cute little face....we made this video replicating one that Uncle Josh did back in the beginnings of SkiptheDishes in 2014- Willis would have been in grade 1 here.

8- I swear I've rearranged my living room every week for the past 2 months.  I cannot for the life of me find a way that I like things.  Benefit is that it stays very undusty with all the moving, bad part is I'm sure the cleaners think I'm crazy.

9-  I got the Lumee case for my iPhone...it's the case that has the crazy lights to take better selfies. *hangs head in shame*.  You can find it here.  But seriously- check out the difference in these photos!

10- Lucia finished her first rhythmic gymnastics experience.  She loves it.  So I guess we're going at it again in January.  They had their Cmas recital on the weekend and this is too cute not to share.  She's wearing a black headband and starts in the back right corner.

That's it for an actual kinda fashiony post for me.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.  PS...my links aren't affiliate links because I'm too lazy to make them affiliated.  #nothingbuttruthstoday
