Field Trip

Sweater: JCPenney
Tank: Old Navy
Jeans: AE
Boots: Off Broadway
Necklace: xmas gift

Yesterday, I mentioned that I have been wearing these boots for the past month... well this has actually been one of my staple outfits.  The brown sweater is lightweight.  It's been perfect for the mild winter we've had so far this year.  I scored a couple cute print tanks at Old Navy while doing some Christmas shopping & they are perfect to give any neutral solid sweater/cardi some added color. 

Today my boss took all the ladies in the office on a field trip to Lynchburg, TN.  We started out at Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House for lunch.  It was some very delicious southern home cooking!  We all ate until we couldn't eat anymore & then they served chess pie with Jack Daniel's whipped topping!   Here's a pic of our group:

Then we headed over to tour the Jack Daniel's Distillery.  The guys at work took a tour a couple years ago, so today was our turn.  It's really had to believe that every bit of the the Jack Daniel's that is sold is distilled in this little bitty "dry" town.  The scenery was breathe taking & the smells were definately overwhelming!  Overall, it was a pretty neat tour, definately worth going if you are ever in the area.  Who said field trips were just for kids?! 

btw: I got an iphone yesterday & I'm in love with instagram!!!!!

It's a new year

Top: Thrifted
Tank: Loft
Jeans: JCPenney
Boots: Off Broadway
Belt: Vintage (from Mom)
I know it's a little late for a New Years post, but I've been slacking with my posts.  The holidays were jammed with shopping, family time, lot of work, doing crafts & some less than stellar outfits!  It's been very eventful & I enjoyed every minute of it!  With the new year, I have new goals.  That's why I decided to join Lindsay (from work) and create a new blog!  It's called Picker Dreams.  We created it yesterday, and it's already a ton of fun.  A couple months ago hubs asked me why I really didn't do crafts anymore (ie make jewelry, scrap booking, cake decorating).  And my answer was that I had new hobbies.  I started blogging, became an avid reader, started working out, cook dinner...  I don't know, there's only so many hours in a day & I can't always find time to squeeze it all in.  But when I started my Pinterest account, my crafty juices started flowing again, and really I haven't stopped.  I've posted a few of my creations on here, but I think a new blog dedicated to my creations instead of outfits is more suiting.  Plus with the help of Lindsay, I'm not doing it alone.  We do a lot of projects together & bounce ideas off each other.  I think we make a good team.  I can't wait to see how our little blog will grow!

I still plan on maintaining Dispatch Apparel.  It's over a Year Old & it's my baby.  (even though I'm a slacker & missed my blogiversary :( Dec 29)

Oh & these are my new favorite boots.  I bought them as a Christmas present for myself in early December & I have basically lived in them since!  (Hence the less than stellar outfits!  I love the boots, but I'm sure you guys would have got tired of all the posts with them! lol)
