Today's post is brought to you by Starbucks Tribute Blend and a splash of Almond milk.
My husband is a Systems Administrator, which means I'm automatically his support staff. :) Every Thursday he pulls a myriad of servers off line and oversees maintenance and construction. It requires a lot of patience on my part, and not making the situation worse by whining and complaining. There's a lot of waiting around on others so he can complete his part.
So Fridays are just a little tough for us, and we do the best we can.
At least we get to go out to dinner. It's becoming a tradition after the Friday workout. O:)
I hope you all have a great weekend!

    you look so good, i hope he's taking you out for a steak dinner.

    when are you next in my neck of the woods? charlottes. would like to meet one of her personal style icons.



  2. I'd say he deserves it more than I do, but we usually go to Freebirds. Mmm.
    We'd love to get up that way, and of course I need to meet the bebe. :)

  3. I found some GAP Long & Lean's on sale the other day, but I'm more convinced than ever that I'm in-between sizes. =( The first time I tried them on, I wasn't sold on them, but this most recent time I actually really liked them. So I bought a pair, washed and dried them, and after I got up from dinner at a restaurant, they had stretched so much and were so baggy in the butt and thighs that I could literally pull them off without unbuttoning them. Maybe I should have gone with a size smaller, but the smaller size I tried on fit pretty snuggly at the store, let alone after I dry them.

    Any helpful hints? I'm kinda bummed I have a pair now that I probably won't wear that much, even though I like them. =\

  4. Hey Jess! Absolutely.
    I always size down at Gap. They run large in general, but the jeans stretch to a full size. I suggest buying a size down and wearing them around the house for awhile before you wear them out.
    I also suggest NOT drying the jeans in the dryer. For starters, it wears them out. Secondly, it will make them shrink. Drying is very hard on clothes. In fact, I only dry socks and underwear. I don't even dry our gym clothes!
    You should be able to sell your L&L's on eBay or at a consignment shop. Gap is running a 30$ off promo right now, so maybe you could get a smaller pair?
    Good luck!
