sumthin' for Sunday

I threw this little number together for goin' to meeting in.  It's interesting how one shirt works with something and another doesn't. I tried on another shirt that was too big for me also with another white belt (this one was wide) but I had heels on and it just looked OFF. I looked strange. Changed the shoes to flats, (if pants are too short, they look WEIRD with heels ;) got another "too big shirt" and cinched it with a tiny belt.  

I have more time right now, because I'm short one client.  The client didn't pass, they wanted me to work different hours that weren't good for me.  In time, Lord willing, I'll pick up a 2nd client to fill that time.  

I like this added free time.  It feels good to have it.  I like "space." If you know what I mean.

Last night I went to a good friends house for a party and bon fire. She's amazing, she's moving to Australia! soon and will teach little kids, and she will attend the Hillsong church.  I met a lot of NICE people at the party.  I want to go to their young adult meetings sometime.  Many of her friends all go to the same church and small group.  (Um, yes there were a lot of  young men ;) when there's bait the fish will come. I've been in a mostly guppie pond too long.Hehe)

the girl in the green dress

My brother was down a few weeks back. We were driving on our way home from church. I wanted to drive a different way home. And We stopped by the train tracks, and he was so kind as too take some pics of me. (My family puts up with me, some do anyways, with takin' pics for me ;)  

I bought this dress for a friends wedding. I'm glad I didn't wear it because my ensemble would have ended up looking very similar to her going away outfit, even the brown camisole with lace I would have worn was so similar to hers. ;)  

I know I haven't done a "fashion post" in forever. I have been busy!  With work, life, and  family vacation. I have been soo busy with work.  Thank you God for work. I'm also thankful it will slow down for now.  I still have work but am moving on from one of my clients.  No problem there, just a change in scheduling.

A lot has happened since I last blogged maybe someday I'll catch you up a bit. I'm just not in the mood to do it now. I feel kinda groggy. I've been super duper lazy today. :P  I will leave you with these words, "enjoy your Sabbath, your day of rest.  Shalom!"
