it's all about flannel

This pic makes me think of those cartoons where the angel is on one shoulder saying "be good" and the devil is on the other saying "be bad!" I have angel and devil doggies on my shoulders!
My good friend M- came down and visited I think it was in October.  She took these outfit pictures for me! I wish she lived closer, she didn't take many but they came out good. She's also an artist! 

So in the morning I believe it was kinda cool so I put this layered outfit on. As the day went on I was to to warm! I had leggings on and the boots are lined with some plush and I also had a cami under the flannel tunic. Oh! I was too warm!! I striped off the scarf and cami. 

It's been a bit of a struggle within the last two months or so to know how to dress.  It may be cool in the am then warm up later or it seems that the day will be mild then the temp drops!

I think in this tunic I look almost pregnant ;) What do you think?  I've worn this tunic/dress since with skinny jeans and a girl told me she loved it! 

I am not wearing much make up if any.  Because I am so light I think I need a little "something something."  It helps. As they say, "if the barn needs painting, paint it!"  (it cracks me up.)

In Januaray I am going to Liberty University to study pre-nursing!  I am lookin' forward to it. God has led me and is opening the doors for me to go.  I still have a ways to go before I start classes on Jan. 16th. Details and logistics to follow through with. I believe orientation is Jan. 12 and 13. Don't worry I will get that straightened out too, the day that I actually have to be there ;)

My Thai date with Dad

There was a NOISY bird in this bush!! Someone was excited!

Awhile back my dad took me on a date. We went to one of my favorite restaurants: Winchester Thai!  On the way to the restaurant we stopped on the walking mall and he was so kind as to take my "outfit pics."  He did a pretty good job, don't you think? 

I got Curry Chicken and he ordered a rice dish. My food was good! I can even smell it now.

We went and saw the movie "The Help."  Which is now one of my favorites.  It's a great movie that explores civil rights and relationships and what can happen when people speak out against wrong

My brother Adam is home from university on Thanksgiving break. I usually don't stay up to 2, 3 or even 4 am normally. Last night I went to bed after 4 am. I feel a little off :P  It's my own fault but he's influencing me, hehe. (Those college kids!)

I bought a new computer! It's such a blessing to have a computer that is not a dinosaur so full of crap that it runs as fast a s a dinosaur :/  For one thing I am thankful for this computer!!!  I've already spent a lot of time working on my pictures and editing. I uploaded Picasa onto my computer. Nice editing program.
