Currently: Houndstooth Dresses

I promised I would follow See Jane Write's  #bloglikecrazy challenge for the month of November, but, of course,I have gotten sidetracked! If you aren't familiar with See Jane Write, then you definitely need to check it out and add it to your blog reader because there's lots of good stuff always going on over there in Javacia's corner of the internet.

Today's blogging prompt is "Currently". I haven't done one of these in a while, so here's a quick update as to what's happening in my life.

Cardigan from Target (old, similar here)
Booties from Cato's (old, similar here)
Reading: This is technically supposed to be "Watching", but I don't watch TV anymore, I swear! I've got people telling me all the time to watch this show or that show, but between the gym, making dinner, Sean's homework, playing Mario Party 9 (I'm fully addicted!!!), putting Sean to bed, getting everything ready for the next day, and so on and so forth, I rarely have time to watch television or follow series. However, I read voraciously, both on my Kindle app and the old-fashioned way with a real book. The last few novels I've read have been The Husband's Secret and The Hypnotist's Love Story, both written by Liane Moriarty and both amazing, and Stephen's King's newest novel Doctor Sleep, the sequel to The Shining. I seriously love to read. I am always heart-broken when students say they hate reading or haven't read a book since 5th grade because they are MISSING OUT!
Wearing:  Houndstooth is huge again this fall, but for some southerners it's just a way of life...Here in the south, we are in the full swing of college football, so school colors are of the utmost important, and I am just lucky that such a trendy pattern is synonymous with my alma mater. At school this week, we were supposed to wear our university school colors, and I was excited to debut this Grace Elements dress!
Eating:  If you follow me on Instagram, then you've already seen my Greek yogurt addiction. My husband and I can't get enough of it. I usually have yogurt for breakfast and a mid-day snack, and Chobani is definitely my favorite.
Wishing:  I could figure out a way to make a living from napping and reading and shopping online. Those seem to be the things that I am most skilled at, yet no one is knocking down my door to offer me a job as a  Napper/Reader/Shopper. What's up with that?

Loving:This time of the year. I love all things fall,and yes I know that's sounds totally cliche, but it's so true. Although truth be told, I prefer McDonald's Pumpkin Spice Latte to Starbucks.
Thankful for:  My husband. He picks up A LOT of slack from me- cooking, cleaning, raising the kid. Many women have a hands-off kinda guy who thinks that all that stuff is "woman's work", so I am so blessed  that he is willing to do so  much around the house to keep it from being a total disaster.He is fully responsible for how awesome things are on the homefront!

The Husband's Secret was AMAZING! I read it in one night because I couldn't stand not knowing how it wrapped up before I went to bed. I kept telling my husband things that were happening, and bless his heart, he pretended to care. =)

Also, I can't see houndstooth without thinking about the University of Alabama, and as a University of Tennessee fan, that hurts my heart because I love the pattern!

I love the bold pattern with the bold red! You look so hot in this!

If you discovered that elusive job where you can nap/read/shop, please share!

Great outfit, and I'm loving that red lipstick on you! Makes me want to pull my never-been-worn houndstooth dress out of the depths of my closet.

I have a houndstooth skirt that I need to dust off and actually wear. Thanks for reminding me! I really like it with red.

Katie Frost said...

Love your style girl!

p.s. I am now following you on FB!

I love the dress! I keep meaning to buy more houndstooth. I saw a skirt at target that I am in love with. As a matter a fact, I probably should pick it up before it disappears lol.
