An Award, Some Yummies and 100 Followers!

NAVY ROSE TOP - Irene's Story
BLACK SKIRT - Jonathan Saunders for Target
NECKLACE - My grandmother's collection
CUFF - Made by my Mom
FLOWER BRACELET - Just Lovely Things
BOOTS - Charlotte Russe

Today my friend, Chambray, came to visit wearing a fabulous pink maxi dress with a denim jacket.  She proceeded to tell me how a man in the parking garage had asked her when her baby was due.  Chambray is NOT pregnant.  She said she was going to go home and burn her dress.

***NOTE:  NEVER ask a woman when she's due, even if she's 9 months preggo and it's super obvious, unless you KNOW FOR SURE that she is indeed pregnant.   

Chambray also brought me some delicious baked goodies from the new company she started, SKINNY BATCHES.  Isn't that the best name ever?  And what's even better is her "Salted Janets," a brown sugar cookie sprinkled with salt.  DELICIOUS!!!  Oh, and her crumbies are to die for...and her oatmeal cookies...and I LOVE her gingerbread.  Yes I've had it all, and I love it all.  Good thing they're only 45 calories each!

Today was a really nice day for my blog.  Not only did I hit 100 FOLLOWERS but I received the VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD from Burning Skies.  I feel so honored.  Thank you!  I really appreciate the blog world because everyone is so nice (which is not always how the real world is), and you can be connected to these people all the way across the world (or right down the street!).  Tomorrow I will write my 7 facts and pass along the award!

Anyway, here's the outfit of the day.  I thought I would attempt to change it up and wear something a little fancier.  I have to say I like this outfit because it's flattering (thanks to those nice dark colors!).  In fact, wearing it makes me feel like a skinny batch!

OH NO! How mortifying for your friend! That man must not know that maxis are THE thing. :)

I love your outfit today! You are rocking that skirt!!!!

SeƱorita said...

That is sound advice about asking women when they are due... It is so embarrassing to ask this type of question and then, in the end, insult the person because there is no pregnancy... Good advice ;)

The blue in your outfit really pops! And autsh for your friend! It's never fun to hear indeed! Some people told me I looked a little preggo in some pictures some time ago and that's the time I decided that it was not smart to eat dinner and then take pictures afterwards xD

Congrats on the 100! You definitely deserve it :)

I love the name Skinny Batches! Your friend Chambray sounds like a witty lady. I have a friend who had a mild fixation with the book, Skinny Bi-otch (as she calls it). The treats look yummy!

I look forward to reading your 7 things :)

Congrats! And I am mortified for your friend! I'm sure she's beautiful and that guy is such an idiot.

Congrats on the 100!!

Sound advice that you would think everyone would know by this time in 2011. But for any man or woman teetering on the edge of a moment of impending stupidity...
Never ask a woman:
1. Her age
2. Her weight
3. Her gestational status

Love the necklace. It's the accent that makes the outfit.


Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

So jealous of those cookies! I need some right about now! I'm going to look for them. And so true about the pregnant comment, some men are just clueless!

Jen HaHA said...

Congrats! I'm almost there. Great outfit! Love all of your accessorizing. Yeah, NEVER ask that of a woman! I look like I'm about 5 or 6 months pregnant, but this belly is just overdue--for exercise!
Come check out my A-to-Z!

Ouch about the question! Did she end up telling the man? If she did, must've have fallen on him pretty hard! Nice shoes btw! And congrats on the followers.
