It's a New Day, It's a New Dawn...

Monday, January 4, 2016 6:45 AM

And I'm feeling good...

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! The past two weeks have been such a whirlwind!  With the Holidays, winter break, short work weeks... I feel like I have been stuck in a time warp. I love spending time with my son, and enjoying family time, but sometimes there is comfort in our regular schedule.  

I work with almost all men... men that work in outside line construction.  They love to ball bust if you will. It is what they do all day, every day to one another, and often times I do not go unscathed. They love to comment on my hair, what I wear, my shoe choices, what I eat, etc. I actually find it funny, it's like a right of passage, and I give it right back to them.  Anyway, on this mild day when I chose to feel cozy in this cape, I just knew I would get a good ribbing.  Shockingly when entering my work place there were things to discuss work related and I made it to my desk comment free.   I had done it!  I settled in to face the day with a perception of being in the clear when moments later one of my coworkers shot around the corner, hands like guns whistling the Good, the bad, and the ugly theme.  Laughing heartily, he got me!

Hope you all had an amazing New Year!  Here's to a wonderful 2016!!

xx, Elise

  27. So in love with your rural outfit. I knew your blog browsing fashion sites and I was in love with your style.

    YOUR BLOG IS SO AMAZING! And you are a beautiful woman!

    All your looks are simply fantastic! You are an inspiring and superbly elegant woman.

In Rio Grande do Sul, have cold, snow, more Argentine and Uruguayan culture, the gaucho culture. Well, you can see Rio Grande do Sul is similar to Kansas, Virginia, Georgia, Missouri, Texas, Arizona and the West and the South/Dixie in USA. Our gauchos are the US cowboys.

  30. Loving the positive vibes of your blog. One thing I would recommend is that your photos are all the same width & height. That way it looks more clean and organized. Just my two cents! xx adaatude.com
