Today is a work day up at the shop. It's quite difficult trying to find something to wear for a blog post and to be able to change out lights and hang wallpaper in. That's right I'll be hanging wallpaper in this get-up. I guess that old saying would apply here: 'tis better to be overdressed than underdressed.' Which is why I am glad that my career path has been in retail and not in construction. Also, I've said this many times before but I'm not good with my hands. It's a miracle I could even learn how to type. I've been banished from hammers, super glue and scissors from concerned family members. So this wallpaper thing should go over well. You use a hammer for that, right?

  1. So purty :)

    Don't feel bad, my hubby banned me from super glue.  I should never go near the stuff.

  5.  The one time I attempted to paint my boyfriend made me in charge of making sure the "lines were straight" aka not touching anything so I can relate. Good luck with the wallpaper!

  7. So that's what that job means....my whole life is making sense now. I've never been trusted with anything sharp or heavy, but I'm pretty good at telling someone if the lines are straight. ;)

  46. I love the color of those cords.   I feel your pain with trying to find an outfit that is functional to chase kids around and is blogworthy too.   Not easy!!   But you look gorgeous as always.   Good luck with the wall paper.

  58. I love the color combo! I worked retail for about 7 years. So, I know all about finding a "retail work" friendly outfit. People only get to see the glamorous shiny results but it's actually a lot of work  (^_^)
