Check it out!! I'm wearing my new mustard colored tights! I absolutely 100% adore them. And I'd wear them over and over again all winter long . . . if I didn't snag them on my desk and get a giant hole in them already. Yeah, so in the trash they've gone. Since I'm a tights novice (hello, 3rd grade vocabulary word!), I have a question for those of you with some tights wearing experience. What should I do? Keep buying cheap $5 tights from Target and cross my fingers and pray that I don't ruin them? Or invest in some expensive ones and reallly cross my fingers and pray that I don't ruin them?
Dress: Target ($7-ish)
Cardigan: Missoni for Target ($40, I think)
Tights: Target ($5)
Boots: Shoedazzle (Birthday gift)
Necklace: Borrowed from my Sis
You can't really tell in the photos, but there's a thin yellow stripe in the sweater. I didn't just pull the color mustard out of thin air and say, "Hey, I think I'll totally not match today and wear mustard tights!" =)
Marshmallow Hay Bales
Yesterday, the kids had a Harvest Party at their daycare and we all had to bring treats for the kids to bring home. Well, as if I'm not busy enough with everything going on, I decided to make these adorable candy corn marshmallow pops. Being the procrastinator that I am, I didn't start shopping for the supplies until Saturday afternoon. Can you imagine the trouble I ran into? Yep, you guessed it, Wal-Mart was all out of the little orange meltable candies and lollipop sticks. I went to every other store in my immediate area, Publix, Food World, Target, Winn Dixie. They didn't carry the candies or the lollipop sticks.
Sunday afternoon, I was dreading the 30-ish minute drive to Party City, when the Hubs came to the rescue with a simply brilliant idea. He suggested that I roll the marshmallows in the yellow candy and then roll them in the rice krispies! Oh, yes, I married that man for a reason. =) But I still needed something to stick into the marshmallows. He then suggested toothpicks. Wellll, I really don't think the parents would appreciate it if I gave their children a treat that could take out an eye, so I nixed that idea. I found a package of multi-colored straws in one of the kitchen drawers and decided to cut the straws in half. Here's the result of my procrastination and my husband's brilliance. =)

Straws or Lollipop Sticks
Last, but not least, we are officially in the season of Thanksgiving!! On that note, I want to say how thankful I am for my Little Guy. He can try my patience to no end and when I lose my cool, I feel like the worst mom ever. But then my sweet guy will come up to me the next day and give me a huge hug and say, "I'm sorry I disobeyed, mama." *sigh* I love my Little Guy and I'm so thankful for him!
