Pregnancy ruined my blog:(

Not my own of course... other people's.... it seems that everyone that is to the right of this post is pregnant... 75% of the bloggers I follow are pregnant..now I'm not a big humbug about having a baby.. having a baby is great... but when you're a blogger and you get pregnant, your blog becomes  the "pregnancy blog".... and its all about how your baby is as big as a kumquat, or you're craving pickled beets, and you can only sleep on your back... blah blah blah.... its great if you're pregnant, but if you're not... notsomuch..... so I go uninspired.... uninspired in a big way... I had to take the month off... I wasn't depressed or anything... I was just sick of seeing these pregnant bellies!!! So I went on instagram and did alot of my pics there.... Heres what I've been up to this month.....
1.
First and foremost... HUBS GOT A JOB!!!! but the good with the bad... Jack got into a fender bender... noone was hurt and hubs old car is totaled.. we only had liablity and the car is OLD... it may be a loss.... so he got a new car!!!  A Ford Escape... nice right??/
2. 
 I have joined the "mad for plaid" revolution... I got this runner at Marshalls, but I've been finding GREAT deals at Goodwill.. Here are just a few.....
I got the little shelf .. this dresser was getting stale with what was on it...

I got this great wreath... white 

 I got this for 2.99... it was bare wood and I painted it... not I can use it to hand scarves and necklaces and stuff...

There was #showmeyourscale on instagram... so I found this sups cute pig... he called out to me at Goodwill.....

Now..onto what we've been watching:
1. Flesh and Bone (Starz) If you l iked "Black Swan"... this is the show for you!!!! it shows the gritty gritty life of a ballerina....Image result for flesh and bone... it is kind of like "Black Swan" meets "Flashdance"... but GOOD!!!!

2. Master of None (Netflix)Image result for Master of None I watched the whole series on Friday night... super cute.... all my millenials will love it....

The Amazing Race: Image result for the amazing race is back... we're on ep. 5... loving it!!!!
"Beasts of No Nation" (Netflix)Image result for beasts of no nation if you have not seen this movie which is a netflix original... you NEED to!!! It is a gritty, no nonsense view of life in a child army....

What I've been reading: 
This is a good book so far...I'm about 1/4 through it... long.. but I think it will pay off...
So thats about it... no pics of me... but my dad my number one fan, assures me that my pics are not needed... hope hes right... have a lovely day my friends.....

A What I Wore Wednesday!!!


ok...I am wearing WAAAAY too much foundation in this pic.. .you can tell I don't get my pic taken very often... now what has Pookapookapooka been up to???
 first lets talk about this class of mine... there are 25 of them... thats alot... and there are about 5 boys that make it feel like its 35!!Every thing that comes out of my  mouth is met with opposition... whether by word or action.... I have a headache every day I leave school...I dont' know if its old age or what... but something's gotta give!!!
I have had three pairs of pants split while I'm wearing them!!! WTH!!! 
My uterus microwaving was a bust!!! The dream of living a period free life was not fulfilled.... My dr. told me that the scarring from my 2 c-sections caused my uterus to now have endometirosis... and there is.......nothing that she could do....
So things are not great.... things will get better!!! I have extreme faith!!!

Look what I got...

Ever since I saw this vest
from a wonderful (yet seemingly defunct now) blog called,newlyloved.com last year I was in love!!!! I imagined it with turtlenecks, crew necks, tunics.... it would cover my big butt and my big thighs.... It would be perfect!!!! However, I looked all up and down amazon and they were really expensive.... so yesterday when I went ot Target, I look over and see what???Image result for target shearling vestYep!! right there at Target!!!! I only went to Target to see the plaid!! thats the new Target theme for fall.. plaid... but this was a great diversion!!!

What kinda blog you runnin here???



I have been asking myself that question for a while now....  what kind of blog is this??? As my three readers know, my inspiration for this blog started with thepleatedpoppy.com and her inspirational outfits such as this:what i wore at the pleated poppy and this:what i wore at the pleated poppy and thiswhat i wore at the pleated poppy: now over time I sloooowly realized that Miss Lindsey is tall and skinny and has great legs... all of which I am not.... I think thats why I started following more home blogs and got away from the fashion blogs... so my new inspiration for a while has been lizmarieblog.com... now she honestly is an interior design genius and I am in no way saying that I can compare my home to hers... but she gives good solid tips and I have really attempted to pull them off in my home... such as....



Heres her house...
Lovely Neutral Fall decor - Rustic cottage fall styleAttachment-1 My house...
see the comparison?? and this side by side...

so you see...not exact... but inspired by.... and finally.. 
PicMonkey Collage
so I cant' be 6 foot tall and skinny.... but I can go to Hobby Lobby and say to myself, " What would Liz do???"

Better late than never

I found all of the above at Goodwill with the exception of the little arrangement... the burlap sash, the lazy susan and the dome... I've been looking for a dome like this for a while... I found a little one at Goodwill seen here: 
 but this big dome was a prize!!!! 

I went to Michaels and they were all up and through with the marquee letters and signs... I went to Goodwill and found this star... pretty much the same thing..
Hopefully, I'll be back this week with some more things to share... like my new shows..

Watch this show... Read this book...

Good Morning Lovelies!!! Its Tuesday... and last night I was thinking of how much I have to tell you today.... Where to begin... OK.. I went to literally 3 Goodwills over the weekend and got some great deals and some super cute stuff to fill up my tiny little house...
I got the cute little pail and was struggling about what to  do with it.. so I went to Michaels and found the cute little acorns...

What is a philcheck file???  I have no idea... so I got a chalk board sticker and covered it up...

Even outside got some Autumn love.. even though the temps were >90 all weekend!!!!GROSS!!!

Now... I 've also discovered some great new shows for you to check out...
If you are an Amazon Prime member you have access to all of their shows.. A great one I binged this weekend is "Hand of God" starring Ron Perlman as a not so nice judge who is falling apart mentally after his son shoots himself and is on life support...
Image result for hand of god Dana Delaney plays his wife... it was really good!!!!

Narcos Image result for Narcosrecognize this guy??? He was on Game of Thrones...Image result for pedro pascalright??? So "Narcos" is the fictional telling of Pablo Escobar... The story goes between the actors and the real people... The acting is excellent... I am on episode 6...

The Incredible Dr Pol...Image result for the incredible dr pol I think I'm a little late to the party on this one... but "The Inredible Dr. Pol" is fascinating!!! I watched 2 yesterday and two dogs got attacked by a porcupine, a pigs rectum fell out, and a cow had a breech birth... It was so horrible and I couldn't turn away...
Now I tried reading some great books after I read  "Pretty Baby" and "The Good Girl" by Mary Kupica... but I couldn't find any... so I just started reading "Purity" Image result for purity jonathan franzen reviews  I just started so review to follow....
So while we all wait for the new fall lineup.. Here are some things to hold you over:)
Have a GREAT DAY!!!!
