Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.
~ Kahlil Gibran

Thankful Tuesday

Sticking with just my obligatory three things this week, but I'm giving you pictures!

It has been sunny and in the mid to upper 50's the past four days, and I'm enjoying it! I think I'm ready to put my skis away until next winter now; the thought of pulling on snow pants and ski boots isn't appealing to me anymore. I'm thankful for the arrival of sunshine and warmer temperatures and...

Dresses! I thought I was going to go crazy for Old Navy's sundown dress sale this week, but alas, most of these dresses make me look like I have a bun in the oven, including this gorgeous gown I was looking forward to wearing for summer dates and cookouts or my next cruise. I returned it and found a jersey-knit one in the same style that looks less preggo; it is navy blue with scattered orange blossoms from the knee down (I couldn't find a pic of it on the Web site). So, I'm thankful for my Old Navy find, along with the... FIVE... light-weight sweaters I got! 

And I'm thankful for beer pong at Jed's old roommate's apartment Friday night. I haven't seen him or his girlfriend since September, and I have never met his new roomie, so it was great to hang out!

Saturday night, one of Jed's coworkers I haven't seen since his wedding three years ago came over for dinner (I made my first roast pork with this fabulous apple "slaw" and egg noodles!), and Sunday night we went out to dinner with our very preggo friend (that I've known since third grade) and her husband. I'm hoping I can see her one more time before the baby comes in exactly one month! I'm thankful for a weekend of catching up with friends!

I found a casual shirt at the weekend, I loved it so much. Unfortunately it was £150. Or $240.

I can't afford that, must find cheaper equivalent.

Great pos. But what's beer pong!!!
