Patches


I went back on the road yesterday...well air, really.

I flew to San Antonio to 'return' Keira, and I'll be staying here until Saturday.  Caleb stayed at home for work for this one, but I'm sure he'll be catching up on some R&R after a week and a half with a toddler.

Lugging a stroller, carseat, luggage, and three year-old through an airport called for comfort and practicality.  I extended my hair wash a day with one of my favorite knitted berets and wore very little makeup.  Now you can see what my eyebrows look like when they're not filled in [gasp!].  :)

My outfit was far from spectacular, but I quite enjoy the blazer I wore.  Like many of my favorite items, it's a recent thrift purchase.  It was marked at $5, but it had the "color of the day" tag, so I received an additional 50% off.  That's right.  A whopping $2.50 for a cute and comfy blazer.  It's about a size larger than I would normally buy, but I actually kind of like it that way.  And I love the arm patches!!  Maybe that'll be the blazer's nickname...Patches.  I like it.

In other news, Texas finally decided to act like it's winter.  It snowed in DFW the day before I took off, and freezing temperatures are supposed to remain throughout the week.  It's not quite as cold here in San Antonio, but yesterday it was wet and chilly - definitely not the makings for splendiferous outfit pictures.  Today the sun is shining brightly, though, so I'm optimistic about the rest of the week.

Wishing you sunshine and happiness!
