I loved Anabela's post on the winter emergency list and since I was feeling some serious winter blues myself last week, I decided to cross a few off my list:
#1 Throw on a dress and go out dancing with the girls. I started taking ballet classes when I was a little girl and have loved all kinds of dancing ever since. So this Friday we went out to retro night. You can always count on dancing to a little Michael Jackson and Madonna to put you in a good mood.
#2 DIY-Take the time to make something for myself. I started this necklace at craft night last week and finally finished it on Saturday. I wanted a long braided necklace and since I can't afford this one, I decided I could make one with my hand cast beads. It seems like there are cute braided necklaces everywhere these days like this one I missed out on from Wiksten, this one from Lauren Haupt and I am hoping to snag one of these from For Me, For You.
#3 Indulge my love of denim and stripes and do a little spring shopping. I have given up on shopping for winter, but I feel guilty spending too much on spring. I was determined to make an outfit for less than $20 and had great success! Denim oxford ($2) and brown boots ($3) thrifted, striped dress ($12.95) from H&M and my new handmade necklace.
#4 Sleep in late and let my wonderful husband make my favorite breakfast, banana oatmeal pancakes!
