Hop, Skip, and Jump One After Another

"People call us renegades cause we like living crazy" - Kings of Leon

It was a long day. I was really late getting to work this morning, and it still felt long. It's over now, and I'm happy to be relaxing in my sanctuary with a chocolate milkshake and my laptop. My oldest son got moved to the Academically Gifted class today. I'm so proud of him, but I was really nervous for him too. He said he got along great and made a new friend really quickly. So far, so good. My youngest son stayed home from school today. He still can't eat anything, and he is very weak. His been up playing his video game some tonight, so that's a good sign. I was invited to a company function for lunch today. I get a large pizza at the beginning of each week and eat it everyday for lunch. It saves me alot of time and effort. Anyway, I was so excited to get to eat something other than pizza. Well, guess what they had at the company function? Freaking pizza! LOL!

Today's outfit is a new combination. This is my second time wearing the Hop, Skip, Jump skirt. Last time I wore it with the Ascending Roses Top. This time I paired it with the One After Another Cardi. Sounds like a game of hop scotch: "Hop, Skip, Jump One After Another." LOL! I'm also wearing one of my favorite necklaces from The Limited. I have to say, though, this is one noisy necklace. Everytime I move it jingles. It's a little annoying, but a sacrifice I was willing to make for the greater good of fashion.

Today's song is "Knocked Up" by Kings of Leon. No, I don't have something I need to tell you. LOL! It's just this is my favorite song by them. I love the 3 chords that keep repeating. Those make this song, and they get stuck in your brain. Don't say I didn't warn you! This song is about a couple that are pregnant at an inopportune time, but I think it can also be a metaphor for taking a risk and listening to your heart instead of reason.

Tomorrow is Friday, and my trip to D.C. is next week, so I'm a happy girl! I can't wait to do tons of reviews for you guys, and I may pick something up for a little contest... Have a great night!
