I'd like to start by thanking Tim Tebow and his "fancy side step" for increasing my blood pressure this weekend. Granted, he makes my blood pressure rise just by breathing- have you seen this kid? Gorgeous. Back on track...I don't know how much we deserved the "W" that we added to our standings this weekend against Ole Miss...but I'm glad none the less. Next weekend against Auburn should be a blast.
I spent yesterday afternoon watching the Gator game and then went to the mall for a few hours. I have the hardest time finding pants for work. A few months ago I found the most perfect pair at Banana Republic, they were on sale and I haven't found any others that fit quite as well. I've completely given up on J.Crew's suiting- I adore their sweaters but their pants just don't do it for me. I ventured into Ann Taylor but after being bombarded by sales people- I left before I even finished browsing. Am I the only one that finds this especially annoying? I realize that they are there to "help" but after 6 people ask you if you want a fitting...come on. It aggravates me just thinking about it. LEAVE.ME.ALONE. I'll come find you when I need you!
As part of my revenge I went to Ann Taylor Loft and actually found a great pair of herringbone pants (maybe they're tweed?). I consider it part of my seasonal change prep- it may not feel like Autumn but I'm going to dress like it does and my house is going to smell like apple pie, darn it! I found adorable dishtowels with leaves embroidered on them so I've got to get over to Bed Bath and Beyond and get a new rug for the kitchen as I don't think the lime green one that is currently in there will match the foliage too well.
I made Brunswick stew last night and it turned out much better than I expected. Recipe courtesy of Southern Living:
