Brain Stream...

Random nothingness is all I've got today, folks.

I am working from home this week because my boss is out of town. I get much more done when I work away from home. I think it's because I'm easily distracted.

I ate lunch today at 10:25AM. I was ready for it at 9:45AM but was able to hold my growling stomach off a bit. That's what happens when I eat breakfast at six-something. I'll need another meal around one this afternoon and dinner will feel like a bedtime snack, er, feast.

I love December. L-O-V-E. So many fun things and traditions to look forward to.

Our temps climbed above freezing yesterday for the first time in a week. It felt like a heat wave. Seriously. It was 12 degrees when I walked this morning and I had frost in my hair but I wasn't complaining because that was about 25 degrees warmer than it was at the same time last week.

I went to the Broncos game on Sunday with some friends. Like my Broncos jester hat? That's what I ordered from Amazon last week so I'd look like a true fan. It was a cold game but we were prepared (SO many layers + feet and hand warmers) and I stayed pretty warm. It was a fun day for sure, especially since they won!

I'm trying to talk myself into a pair of skinny jeans. Mainly because I bought the boots I'd been saving for (found them for a ridiculously awesome sale price and snatched them up!) and John let me have them before Christmas because he's the best husband ever. Most of my jeans are boot cut and I can't tuck them in properly. My teen and tween, both of who have more fashion sense than me have stated over and over that I need skinny jeans with them. I'm starting to agree but I'm 100% sure they won't be flattering. Any help here from friends? Do you have a brand you like that is inexpensive? Do you feel ridiculous in them? Should I just get over myself and buy some and wear LONG sweaters with them? Thoughts? I would love some some feedback.

Our mailbox has been filling up with Christmas cards this week and that makes me so happy! I love hearing from friends this time of year. We are SO behind the ball on our own cards. We were supposed to have family photos made last weekend but the high temp was 10 degrees so we postponed until this weekend. It's going to be a Christmas miracle if I get them mailed on time, but it's definitely my goal. I have a lot of address collecting to do in the next week or so. I dread that…

This post has been a nice distraction but I must get back to work! Hope the rest of your day is merry and bright!

I am a newly turned 50 year old who has been wearing skinny jeans for a year. I bought them for the boots. I love my Old Navy Rockstar skinny jeans and they were pretty inexpensive on sale.

I agree on the Old Navy Rockstar jeans! I am a plus-size Mama and I have a couple pairs and feel like they fit well and are not too tight, and I can tuck them into my boots.
You would look great! Go for it! :)
