Its been in the temperature outside has been in the negatives every morning when I wake up in my 85 year old house and put my feet on the polished hardwoods. Ugh! I hate wearing pants, because I don't care what other people say wearing dresses and skirts are amazingly comfortable becuase its like wearing no pants at all. There is one little exception to that golden rule of fashion and comfort--when its negative degrees outside. Then, it doesn't matter how well lined your boots are or how long your coat is you are going to loose feeling in your knees. Sigh! Obviously this little Southern transplant has a few more winters before she acclimates to the Midwest. So I have been bundled up the past few days. The one fashion positive is that I get more wear out of my cowboy boots in this weather--which makes me happy. But I see the high in a few days in going to be in the 20's so I am looking forward to rocking a new grey flannel skirt I just purchased for a whooping $10.
In the meantime its less than 24 hours until my new sideboard table arrives and I can unpack my china! Then I am certain I will have a revelation about what color I should paint over the awful golden yellow in the dining room...any suggestions on that one are more than welcome! I have been really inspired but the light and airy, yet warm and cozy feel of the paint Nichole has used for her home, especially the Chocolate Froth from Behr featured in thier bedroom.
