Army Green and Gold

I’m the kind of person that builds outfits around accessories. Take these Harry Potter pins for example. While cleaning up my dresser yesterday, I found this in my pin collection and knew I had to group them together for an outfit.  It usually starts with shoes, then to a shirt and pants.

10 Points to Gryffindor

I’m a Hufflepuff and Mike’s a Gryffindor. I like to pretend all my Gryffindor Quidditch pajamas are his and it makes me feel like a teen wearing her boyfriend’s Letterman jacket. I know Hufflepuff pajamas and lounge wear exists, but so far Target has the most comfortable (and  ...

Things My Grandma Taught Me #1

The one thing my grandma would always say to me was that I needed to practice silence when in a group, old or new, and listen. By listening, I can learn. Learn how to talk to people. Learn how to talk to certain types of people. By observing others with how and what they talk about I can learn  ...
