Conversation #172: What I've been wearing lately (or really outfits from the last couple of months)

Don't you just love a really long and descriptive blog title?  Me too!

We are just blowing and going on the house (trying to get most of the big stuff done before my parents come down to stay for Thanksgiving) so I just don't have much time at all to blog.  However, once we hit the lull, be prepared for an abundance of house projects.  That also means hopefully we'll have unpacked and my camera cord will be found so I can quit uploading only phone pictures.  I'm still mostly holding out on house pics for that reason, but here is one teaser of our new granite:
It is called Sienna Bordeaux, and I'm pretty much in love it with it. Oh, and you get a sneak peak of the new cabinets too!  Things are happening, but there was...just...so...much...to...do.  We will finish one day.

So in the meantime, here are some pre-moving outfits, a few at the beginning of the move, and some more from the last week.  I didn't take many outfit pictures over the last 6 weeks because most of my clothes were packed away.  Plus, I was so dang tired everyday, that showering and putting on clothes somewhat appropriate for work was a struggle.

Anyway, here are some ways this ordinary girl has been dressing herself lately.  You can also see my hair growing out through these pictures.  It is a mess and I can't wait to get it trimmed up this Saturday.  I had cut it all off back in April, and now I just want to grow it out.  As I have been changing how I take care of my hair, I have realized I think the curls develop better with more length, but not too long either.  I'll share haircut options tomorrow because I would LOVE your opinion!

I think the above and the next few pictures were a day I thought my hair was somewhat behaving.  I added them because you can see how it has grown (and this was a couple months after the initial cut)
