Grandpa and I surely did enjoy having Elliott stay with us a few days. Two year old little boys are some of my favorite people and this one in particular. He is really starting to talk. Although I do not always understand him, he knows what he wants! And I have to say that he is such a polite little fella. Every time I give him a snack or a meal, he promptly says thank you in that gravelly little voice. I love him!!
Coloring with big crayons is fun too.
And here we are back in Birmingham...we did have to take Elliott home. His family misses him. We met Mommy, Margaret and Baylor for an after school snack at Krispy Kreme. And by the way I still have not made it to the Decatur KK. You would think people had never seen a donut store by the lines that are still forming. Maybe it will calm down next week so I can have a donut before Lent.
Now...for all of you who have wanted to see my leggings.....
Actually they are the Walmart Jeggings. And I realized that I did not have a full length mirror for a selfie!! This is in my room divider's mirror. I purchased a size 12-14 and they fit well without being super tight. In this picture they are tucked into my new pair of black boots.
Don't laugh. I stood on a chair to take this one in the bathroom mirror. I hoped I did not have to call 911 for a fall. Sorry EMT's I was standing on a chair to take a picture of myself in leggings to post on my blog! I am wearing a black shell with my long gray Matilda Jane sweater over the jeggins. Black boots complete the outfit. I am 5' 71/2" tall if that helps you to see the proportion. Hey girls, for $13 go to Walmart and get a pair to try out. They are very comfortable and with all the tunics, long shirts out there right now, you can find something you like. I really am trying to change up my wardrobe a bit. I have lost some weight and I am going through my closet and tossing the large sizes and switching to medium. I am one of the curvy pear shaped girls so I tend to wear a smaller top and a larger bottom. I do not like tight clothes but I am realizing that baggy clothes are not very attractive and can actually make you look heavier. I am leaning to the tailored look these days. So there you have it. Make your own decisions.
Well it is Friend Day...my favorite day of the week!! We are going to a restaurant down by the river today. And I have plans to visit two libraries so I am a happy camper.
