I've been out of town for the past week.  My mother wanted to go with her friends to San Antonio.  She didn't want to be a fifth wheel, so I went with her.  We had a great time.

We went to the Alamo, Riverwalk, the Mexican Market, Mi Tierra's Bakery, LBJ Ranch, Luckenbach, Rudy's Barbecue, and the San Antonio Zoo. The two men that went also visited the Toyota plant.  We wanted to tour Cowboys Stadium, but they were not doing VIP tours on Friday.

We got back home Saturday afternoon.  Even though we had a great time, it was good to get back home.

Back to work tomorrow.

I hope everyone has a great Monday.

Today my boss's boss is in town.  I'm going to wear a navy Austin Reed skirt, light blue Brooks Brothers merino wool twinset, big pearls, big pearl earrings and my navy Ferragamo Varas.  It's cold outside, so I need to find an appropriate jacket to wear.  I have a long black Geiger boiled wool jacket.  Maybe that will do.

Since I am having to tell you what I'm wearing, I'm taking more time putting things together.  Maybe in a few weeks, it will just happen.

I hope everyone has a great Thursday.

Two days in a row for dressing better for work.

I wore a navy Brooks Brothers' dress, a light blue Lands' End cardigan, pearls, pearl stud earrings, and navy Ferragamo Veras.  I felt like I looked nice.

I had to go sit on another floor for four hours.  Everybody was in a meeting.  I had to sit there just in case there was a visitor.  Nobody came onto the floor.  I felt glad to help out.  It's all about team work.  My coworker does not understand the concept of team work.  She does not work outside of her little box.  That has always been hard for me to understand.  Oh well.  I can't worry about her.

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday.

Lazy weekend.

I did a few errands, watched TV and read magazines.  It was so nice.

Today, I'm starting my plan to change my routine so that I look better when I go to work.  I normally just wear whatever.  I need to start dressing better...just because.

Today, I'm wearing a Austin Reed black skirt, a red turtleneck sweater and a Brooks Brothers black quilted jacket.  I can't decide between my Ferragamo Vera's or my Ferragamo loafers.  I'll decide when it is time to put on my shoes.  Since my jacket has gold tone button and the shoes have gold tone bows/trim, I'm going to opt for gold jewelry.

Now I need to decide what to wear tomorrow. 

I hope everyone has a great Monday.

This past weekend, my mother and I went to Sevierville/Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.  We wanted to do a little bit of shopping. 

At Pendleton, I was able to find a pair of glen plaid slacks and a couple of merino wool sweaters.  At Ralph Lauren/Polo, I bought a set of four glen plaid highball glasses and four glen plaid double rocks.  They were on sale and I had a coupon.  I also bought some Lauren cologne.  We hit most of the shops at the outlets in Sevierville.

For dinner, we ate at Applewoods Farmhouse Grille.  It is a very popular restaurant in Pigeon Forge.  We were going to eat breakfast there on Sunday, but decided that we were not in the mood for a large breakfast. 

Sunday, we did more outlet shopping.  As we were leaving, we went to Orvis and The Apple Barn.  We had apple pie for lunch.  YUM!  My mother stocked up on apple butter and corn relish.  Maybe it will last until our next trip to the mountains.

We were lucky that it was a pretty weekend.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and have a great Wednesday.

I'm sorry that I've been bad about posting lately.  I've had something going on at work.  It's over, so now I can get back to normal.  I hope to be able to post more often, or at least until the next round of stress at work.

Have a great Thursday!
