an outfit. another lamp. and sean.

i am not a fashionable person.. but one day i wore this outfit to work and my sister maddie and friend lee insisted that a picture be taken of it and that i post it on the blog. they said i looked like i was going to go horseback riding or something. but that it was cute. haha. i normally wear practically the same thing everyday, so maybe they were just excited that it was something different? anyway, i gave in. here you go maddie and lee! enough about that. this will be the last time you see an outfit post from me. i love outfit posts from other people, don't get me wrong. just not my outfits. my boots are pretty cute though eh?

so here is another DI find.

this lamp was $2. i actually really liked it before painting it, but like donuts to a fat kid i just could not resist the power of spray paint.

i moved the other lamp i painted over to the side table by our couch because the lampshade that i got for it was a little bit too big for the space.

now i just need to find a taller and better side table. i honestly look EVERY SINGLE day for one. still haven't found the one. i am going to put my hunt for one on hold for a little bit because we are leaving for our cruise on saturday and i need to start getting ready for that!

i just wanted to say thank you everyone for your prayers and sweet comments for sean! he is still very sore, but doing great! should be back to his old self in no time. and for those what were wondering, we don't really know what is wrong with him. he was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis 7 years ago (he was terribly, terribly sick, had to get called to a new mission), but now they believe there might be something else going on because his liver counts on his blood work for the past 7 years have always been higher than normal. that is why they decided to do a liver biopsy. it might not be anything, but the doctor said he wouldn't be doing his job if he didn't make sure. sean was feeling pretty good before all this came about so they don't seem too incredibly concerned about it. they just would rather be safe than sorry! :) we will find out the results on March 8th.

p.s. the bridal fair was a great success. i only managed to knock down 3/4 of all the frames displayed on the table while devin and katie were speaking with potential clients. way to go chloe! what can i say? it was like a domino effect, and the more i tried to stop them from falling? the more that fell. oops!

p.s.s. i am watching my girl 2 right now while sean is sleeping and moses is passed out under our bed. anyone remember that movie? kinzy? i know you do... ;) remember how she gets her ears pierced without permission and it's like she might as well have gotten knocked up or joined a gang or something? gosh i love this movie.

More outfit posts! You look adorable. Glad to hear sean is doing well. I totally forgot about My Girl. I vaguely remember a really sad part that put me off the movie though.

Love the outfit. Mostly the shirt and red cardigan. Man, I need more color in my closet...
Cool lamp! All your DI finds lately have me itching to go and do some hunting at my nearest DI....but the Mr. might kill me if I try to buy anything right now...sigh...I'll just try to get my fix vicariously through you. (So keep up the DI-find/decor posts, please!)

I love your outfit! Those boots are awesome!

All your posts are making me want to find things to spray paint! My boyfriend is lucky that we don't have the space for more stuff...right now. :)

I'm glad that Sean is feeling better! I hope everything continues to go well for him.

My Girl 2 is the greatest. I loved both My Girl movies when I was younger and watched them ALL the time.

this is me. said...

glad that sean is feeling a little better. you look great in that ensemble. you're always so good as repainting things and making them look 10x better.

i'm going to protest you on the "i don't do outfit posts" because you need to!! i'm self conscious when i post pictures of myself too but you are much cuter than 100% of the population! really i love the orange/red cardigan! i have been trying to find a few red accesories like a scarf or socks with high rise pants and ankle boots. i love a good red punch to an outfit. love.

Where did you get those boots? I don't mean to be a copy cat, but I've been looking for brown riding boots for SO long, and haven't found any that I like that I can afford. I really like yours! Your shirt is adorable, and I want a red cardigan so bad. I have my eye on one at Urban, but it's expensive. Glad that Sean is doing/healing well. Hopefully he'll be in tip top shape for your cruise!!

Lauren @The Little Things We Do.... said...

hope you're having a good week friend!

xo!

First of all what brand are those cute boots?! Your lamps are super cute too. I just redid a lamp that I got off of KSL. Check out this tutorial if you want to cover a shade in fabric. http://isabellaandmaxrooms.blogspot.com/2010/06/how-to-cover-lampshades-with-fabric.html
I haven't done it yet, but that's my next project.
