"What I Wore Sunday" and a Coffee Update

Happy Friday, everyone!

My blog friend Rachel over at Ranchin' Mama, and my cousin Sharon have both been asking for ladies to participate with "What I Wore" pictures on their blogs.  I kept forgetting to have someone take a picture when I got dressed up so I only have a couple to share this week. Plus, my wardrobe isn't very fashion forward. Thankfully, no-one around here seems to care.

Below is the outfit I wore to church on Sunday morning.  It was chilly when we left so I threw on a light jean jacket. In the winter, I wear it with boots instead of sandals.

Here is the outfit I wore to a garden wedding last week. It was unseasonably warm, so I could still get away with it.

I hate the horrible picture below, but I put it on here because sometimes, when I'm feeling cantankerous, I wear this dress with my old boots. My toes stay warmer, and it's way more comfortable. I don't care if it doesn't match.

I'll try to remember to snap more outfit pictures next week.

Coffee Update:

As you know,  the past few weeks I've been trying to adapt to drinking coffee. I've been experimenting with all sorts of flavorings, and I've had my ups and downs with the whole experience. Last night, however, I drank the best Peppermint Mocha I've had in a while, and I downed the whole cup in a matter of minutes. It was tasty!

Big Mistake.

Huge Mistake!

Two hours later, I went to bed but wasn't tired at all.

Finally, I got up and read a book on my iPad to pass the time.

At 3:00 a.m. I was still staring at the ceiling.... WIDE AWAKE.

I don't know what time I finally dozed off, but when I woke up this morning, I felt horrible! I think I only got a couple of hours of sleep.

Caffeine is a nasty little creature at bedtime.  I can't believe the fully leaded stuff had such a bad effect on me.

No more coffee for me at night.

Lesson learned.


Have a fabulous Friday,



  1. Ooh, I love your black dress! That is too cute, and I really like it with the boots.

    I can't have caffeine after 3 p.m. or I experience the same effects. Actually, I had a handful of dark chocolate covered pomegranates after supper last night and was up 'till midnight. My Hubby has high blood pressure, so thankful we keep a lot of decaf tea and coffee on hand...

  2. Ooo, too cute, girl, love the outfits!! :)

    Coffee never seems to do much to me, maybe I don't drink enough of it... haha

  3. Love the outfits!
    Regarding the coffee. I read somewhere to drink coffee before you exercise. I started running in the evening's mid summer and so at around 4/5 I'd enjoy a cup of coffee and mercy, can you ever run! And, mercy, can you never sleep! I did a lot of middle of the night reading and groggy morning's myself. With three little one's I couldn't aford to not hit the ground running and had to give up my afternoon caffine kick! I too love the Peppermint Mocha and bought the BIG bottle. You can only get it seasonally, so enjoy. I'm sure you can find a recipe on Pinterest though....

  4. You never know how coffee will effect you at night til you try. (not dumb at all) :) I can actually drink coffee all day and up until the time I go to bed and it has no effect on me at all. Now all the fancy stuff that people like to drink...I don't know about all that. But regular problem :)

    You look nice, even in your boots and black dress.

  5. Super cute outfits! I agree it has been very warm lately, kinda weird.
