Day 8 - A Man to Appreciate

tank & pants: thrifted, shoes: target

I am not squatting, I promise! Only one knee is bent. ;)

Here's my outfit for Inspiration Monday over at Two Birds.  This is the first one I've tried simply because it is the first inspiration outfit that I liked enough to wear and that I had the pieces to re-create - in my 30 for 30 no less. :) I have to be honest though, within an hour of taking these pictures I untucked the top. :) It was just more comfy that way and frankly, I think it looked better. :) I did feel just slightly naked (or 'necken' if you ask my son) without a necklace or scarf around my neck, but the simplicity was nice.

So, my hubby has been gone since last Monday except for 24 hours from Friday at two to Saturday at one. I MISS HIM!!! (As I wrote this, he called me! :) ) I can't really talk about what my hubby does for a living because I am a little bit in a position of 'Caesar's wife' in that everything I do reflects on him. Suffice it to say that he is an amazing man who unfortunately has to do some traveling in the summer. He'll be home briefly tomorrow and have to leave out again within the hour and be gone until Saturday. Thankfully we (Munchkin and I) can visit him whenever we want since he is only and hour and half or so away. It still isn't the same as having him home. Even when we are each doing our own thing, we are together. We are a little strange among our friends in that even after 12 and half years of marriage we would still rather be together than apart. If we have a choice between time with friends and time with each other we'll both lean toward time with each other. That's just the way we roll. :)

Now, I'm going to go take a nap in my lonely bed and miss my hubby like crazy until my kiddo gets up and distracts me. :) Hope y'all are having a great week!


  1. Hey, you had the idea of using pants like one of the sisters at two birds. I like seeing how everyone interprets the look their own way. Nice to meet you on here! Debbie

  2. Kudos on not only getting dressed for Inspiration Monday but also for the 30-30 challenge! Yes, the pants was a smart move and I love how you went with the white on top, black on the bottom. Great interpretation!


  3. ah, you're like me with the pants. i love your simplistic look! and it sounds like you have a wonderful marriage! yay! =)
