Fashion Break

February 20, 2008

Here’s another installment of Oprah’s advice on fashion. As you can see, I don’t really focus on her shows on medical mysteries, politics, finances, relationships, whatever. Nah, I stick to the REALLY important subjects like CLOTHES, or maybe some CELEBRITIES, or the always lovable NATE and his serious decorating skills.

Her show today was on schlumpadink moms who need some help in the fashion department. (um, yeah, I watched this show as I laid on the couch wearing pjs that I still having changed out of and it 6:30pm. I guess I could use the help too…hey, I’m sure I’m not the only one out there!)

So, here goes…


AFTER: (my favorite makeover – I thought she looked so cute and fresh)




AFTER: (I’m loving that short-sleeved tunic with the drawstring-so cute!)

BEFORE: (please tell me no one else out there wears overalls anymore!)



Oh, and I just had to tell you – I made HOMEMADE gravy today!! I know, most of you are probably rolling your eyes and thinking that is SO not a big deal. Sorry, it is for me!
My chicken and noodles needed a little something extra tonight, so I called my mom and said, “It’s an emergency! I need to know how to make gravy – NOW!” So she quickly told me, with every other word being said in Pennsylvania Dutch (similar to German in case you’re not familiar – it’s the language I grew up on and my mom uses it when she’s in a hurry and can’t think of the proper English words).
I’m not much of a cook, but now I can make gravy with my whole chicken!!:)
