NO Pants April 2015: Day 22

How is everyone else doing on No Pants April 2015? I am still digging it, and to prove it, I gardened this evening while sporting a floral skirt. See?
Outfit: Floral skirt with lilac underskirt peeking out, a lilac t-shirt, brown flats, silver drop earrings and several beaded bracelets.

Pretty skirt, dirty nails and freshly sprouted lettuce. Good times.
Please forgive me as I didn't take a face selfie today. I have a toothache and feel puffy and gross. But I still donned BB cream, a bit of brown eyeliner, mascara and pink tinted lip balm. I just didn't take a picture of it. ;)

Simple Woman's Daybook

Today, I'm going for the shortest answer possible that still answers the question. Wish me luck :) We all KNOW I'm a chatty Cathy.

For Today...April 21, 2015

Outside my window... SUNSHINE!

I am thinking...of my to do list

I am thankful...for undeserved blessings

I am wearing...skirt and top

I am creating...a tidy house

I am work

I am wondering...about the human spirit. How some can handle so much, and some seem so fragile.

I am reading...Interrupted by Jen Hatmaker

I am please my husband with No Pants April.

I am be quiet.

In my garden...lettuce is ready

In my kitchen...zucchini bread

In the homeschool room...a human body DVD

A favorite quote for today...
"The American Dream: Buying things you don't want with money you don't have to impress people you don't like."   ~paraphrased by yours truly

A peek into one of my days...

This is definitely from the "Only-At-My-House" files. HA HA HA!
One of my favorite things...laughing.

PS. If you enjoyed this peek into my life, and want to read others'...or even share your own, head on over to and join the fun.

No Pants April 2015: Day 18

This is probably my favorite new skirt. It's just amazing. I've always loved long-Long-LONG skirts, with beading and pretty patterns, but until I emerged from 20 years of playing with toddlers in the dirt, I could really indulge that love affair. But now that my own kiddos are biggie boys, and Little Miss is old enough to not need to be carried much anymore, I can purchase things like that. And so I did!
Outfit: Long 2 tone green and gold 'gypsy' skirt with brown knit shirt, brown flats and gold hoop earrings.

Make up: Keeping it simple again, BB Cream, lipstick, mascara and a sweep of light shadow.

The original kind of  *selfie*

NO Pants April 2015: Day 17

Squeal! Two days ago I went to the King's Treasure thrift store and scored really huge, coming home with 6 new-to-me pieces for under $4. Yesterday, I went to Good Will and came home with 2 new-to-me beauties plus an angel food pan for $10, and the pan was a little over $4 alone. So, with that in mind, I think I'm SET for the rest of NPA 2015. With a unit price of less than $1.25 each, I don't mind if one falls apart in the wash, or I step on one and rip it before the end of the month. And if I'm careful with them, they will last me at least until No Pants April 2016. :)

Outfit: Burnt Orange Wrap Knit skirt with uneven hemline ( a first for me) a white t-shirt with a floral print on it, brown flats. Sphere dangly earrings.

I CAN'T FIND MY PICTURES!! AAAGH! I will look for them on my phone later this evening and see if I can update for you. Or I'll have to recreate them if they are truly missing.

Make up: Bare Skin, mascara and lip balm. Just the basics.

NO Pants April 2015: Day 15

 I am still SO loving this month! My Friend Kiter, over at  And Then There Were None, is super smart! This is great. I may even declare it to be No Pants MAY soon :) I'm going to the thrift store on my way home from work today to see if I can score some new skirts.

Outfit: Long Pink and White Crinkle skirt with simple brown t-shirt. Brown flats, a beaded bracelet and sphere dangle earrings complete the outfit.

Make up: I'm a natural looking girl at heart, so BB Cream, a sweep of mascara, a bit of eyeliner, and tinted lip balm is my fave look. I look polished and well put together without looking "Made up". Here I am amongst my glorious roses.

UPDATE: Here's a peek at the fun new things I found at the thrift store! I bought a knit dress, 2 skirts, and a complete outfit for less than $4. Hurray for purple tags being 75% off the day I wandered in!

NO Pants April 2015: Day 14

HI Friends, another beautiful day of skirt wearing in paradise :) Join us if you like. Kiter can be found blogging about No Pants April on her blog, And Then There Were None.  I am going out to breakfast with a friend, so I wanted to look extra good today.

Outfit: Blue and Yellow printed long Crinkle skirt, navy t-shirt and brown flats. I also wore 3 beaded bracelets, pearl and silver heart drop earrings, AND a necklace. I never wear necklaces, too many years among the little ones that pull on them, I suppose. :)

Make up: A FULL face worth: BB Cream, 3 shades of shadow plus liner and heavy mascara (I regretted that decision) and brownish pink lipstick.

I can't find my up close pic on the camera. I'll update when I (hopefully) find one on my phone or Kindle. Sorry.
