Homecoming 2017

I only went to the Homecoming for 1-hour total the entire weekend, buuuutttttt....I had THE BEST weekend!!! :O)

Highlights/Memories from Homecoming 2017:
  • Nathan and Kayla moved back home this week, and Logan, Lindsey, & Kamry came in on the mail boat on Friday, so I was one super-happy Mom having everyone here!!! I just wish Peter could have been home.
  • I cooked bbq chicken w/sides on Friday, we were invited to a family dinner at the Chesapeake House on Saturday, and we got crab melts from Four Brothers on Sunday. Oh! and of course, we had soft crab sandwiches at the Homecoming ---yummmm. 
  • Julie and Derek skipped Homecoming again this year, but Mom & Dad had Denise's family staying with them.
  • I got to spend some good, quiet time with Kamry!!! On Friday, I brought her home with me (after my one hour at the Homecoming) and gave her a bath and got her to sleep, and on Saturday, they brought her home early, but the four of them called it an early night too. Yaaa!!! I can't tell you how happy I was having them all gathered in the living room, eating snacks and talking and laughing (by 11:30!!!). 
  • the weather was iffy all week but we only ended up with a storm through the night Friday, then pretty on Saturday! (muggy & buggy though) 
  • Cameron designed this year's shirts. <3 
  • I had a busy weekend at the b&b. $$
  • from the 5 of us there were only a couple of pics taken!!


After a week-long forecast calling for a wash-out weekend....look at this gorgeous Saturday sky!!

Nathan helped with the setting up, working, and taking it all down afterwards, 
and of course....Nathan danced.....I'm sure the song playing is either "Jump On It" or "Cotton-Eyed Joe" LOL I have no clue what the popular song was this year because I wasn't there long enough to know...and I didn't even dance...not even the Wobble...LOL

Stitch Fix #10 - August 2017

Stitch Fix #10 - August 2017

My stylist was Kristina again this month, and I really liked the BoHo style items in this month's fix! 


Marilyn Schiff Delilah Round Crystal Earrings - $28
Pretty, but I didn't keep. [RETURN]


Spade & Heart Karoline Dolman Knit Top - $38
I like that she sent me another striped top to try, but it's still that stretchy knit fabric. I'll hold out for a cotton striped top. [RETURN]


Liverpool Deidra Boot Cut Jeans - $78
I loved these pull-on stule jeans and almost kept them, but they were super long and thought they might not hem nicely. [RETURN]


Vero Moda Eleanor Embroidery Dress - $58
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress!!!!!! Unfortunately, it didn't look good on me. I love the BoHo style and hope to get more items, especially tops, in this style!! [SADLY RETURN]


Fun2Fun Dunram Lattice Detail Blouse - $48
This top had that BoHo look as well, and I loved the fit and colors, so this was my one keep this month. [KEEP]

I had another friend sign up under me this month giving me a $25 credit in my account ((((thanks Miriam!!))))
So, with my $20 styling fee applied plus the $25 credit, I only paid $5.54 at check-out.

Thoughts: I am enjoying, Kristina, my stylist. I really loved everything in the box, and feel like the choices are more suitable for my age and style. I loved everything in this fix but only kept 1 of the 5 items! I am still loving Stitch Fix and get very excited when my monthly box arrives!! Can't wait for next month's fix!!
