Life Lately

Lately:

Yesterday Curtis found a snake behind our vacuum cleaner. It was a baby and non-poisonous, but a snake nonetheless. Just one of many reasons, I don't vacuum...



Sleep has been rough over here the past three nights as we try to get Sean in the habit of going to sleep by himself, instead of the usual sleeping arrangement which is me curled up beside him and snoring at 8:00 PM. Last night I was so exhausted I went to sleep at 7:30, leaving Curtis to deal with Sean and his crying. Sean finally fell asleep after 9:00...



Lower humidity here in the South means that my hair will hold curl till my afternoon photo-taking. That makes me pretty happy. So does this new sparkly top (remember- Glitz Before Six!). If you have a Cato's nearby, go get this top (Available in multiple colors and plus/straight sizes)! I'll be adding some new pieces to my StoreEnvy shop in the next couple of days, so be sure to check back!

A snake?! That's a sign that you should never vacuum again in your life.


Love the top, fun color and the amount of sequins on it is juuuuust right :)

You look extra pulled together today... I'm loving the sequined design. The peek of tattoo is especially edgy against the professional look that you're rocking. I know a lot of people don't prefer the basic look of black + one color but I really love it. I really, really like the boldness of it.

That color is fabulous on you! I agree that its a very pulled together look. Loving the hair as well. Wishing I had a catos!

I love your outfit! You look beautiful! I get so many good ideas from reading your blog. I may be in my 50s, but I still like to look good! Thanks for being an inspiration to me!

I think that is reason for ME to never vacuum again. I'll tell my husband to send you a thank you card. :)


You look beautiful, I love your new top!

Oh my gosh, I would've freaked out if I saw a snake inside! Love the little hint of sparkle on your top :)

Eeeek! I hate snakes so much. They make my skin crawl! However, I love that shirt. I love anything that is peacock inspired :)

Julie Glass said...

I love that top, love your style!! Just put "sequined top- Cato" on my list of errands for the day!

Sarah With A Bow said...

Woo! Tiny snakes, bedtime and sequins! A winning blog combination any day, hehe. (:

I love sequins & this top definitely fits the bill for "Glitz before 6" without going overboard. The color is lovely too.

Oh my goodness, a snake! And here I thought spiders were bad. I love your sequin top, so pretty.

Love that sequin detail and YIKES about the snake! We get rattlesnakes around the outside of the house, and they aren't as little or cute or non-venomous. :-S Good luck sleep training the little one!

Loving this! The sequin detail is so lovely on that top, and your hair looks so retro bombshell-esque. Stunning!

How awesome has Cato's been lately?! I got a gorgeous brown/gold/bronze sequined tank there the other day, even though I am SO not a shiny person, after encouragement from your blog. I got tons of compliments that day!

Marissa said...

Do I spy a tattoo?
Love the way that blue looks on you and I hope things with Seans bedtime are going easier

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Yes, ma'am ;) I got it for my birthday!
Things are still going horribly with Sean and bedtime, but I am remaining hopeful.

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Amazingly awesome. I've gotten several great things I can't wait to share!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Yay! He didn't agree with me, but he is used to me being lazy ;)

Thank you, Annie!

Yeah, glad I'm not dealing with too many of the poisonous variety! Thank you :)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I don't know- spiders are pretty dang bad!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Definitely. They had a great purple too. It was tough to decide, but I love this peacocky color!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Ha, right!? I almost just posted photos and left it at that. I mean I had NOTHING!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Well, I hope you got to go. Cato's has some great things right now!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Something about wide leg trousers I think! And I am loving this new tattoo ;)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I think I can count on one hand the number of times I've vacuumed in my life. For real.

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you, Meghan!

Crystal said...

I did but I couldn't find anything. I think our small town one might not always carry the best stuff. :(
