This is a pretty typical nanny outfit for me.  Jeans, flats, and some sort of interesting/colorful top.  I've been working on adding more pants to my wardrobe since that's usually the most practical thing for my day to day wear now.  I thrifted a pair of pink cords and a pair of cargo pants a few days ago that I'm planning on refashioning, and then I'll have a few more options. :-)  

So Kate tagged me in 5 Things a few days ago.  And because I just know you all are dying to know 5 random things about me, I shall jump right in:

1. I love peanut butter.  Specifially JIF peanut butter.  We've done a pretty good job at getting rid of all the sugary, chemically junk out of our home, but the JIF just keeps finding it's way back in.  I can't help myself.

2. I vastly prefer manual over automatic transmission in a vehicle.  I grew up on a farm and learned to drive a stick shift tractor long before I could drive a car.  Even when I got my license, I drove around my parents cars, which where all manual.  I didn't drive an automatic on a regular basis until I got married and it was weird.  We bought a little manual Jeep last summer and I adore it.

3. One of my favorite things to do with Jeremy is tour lighthouses.  We did that a lot when we were dating, and are looking forward to seeing a lot more now that we're back in the Great Lakes State.

4. I have a thing for frogs.  Our bathroom is decorated entirely in frogs and I have quite a few others scattered throughout the house.  I even have a cute little frog ring that I love to wear.

5. I have all girl cousins.  In fact, my brothers at the only boy grandchildren on either side of my family.  It's kind of weird.

I tag...

Rachel, for the birds

Happy Friday! Hope you have a great weekend. 


  1. I really like the olive and orange combo!

    I feel the same way about stick shift. The first three cars I ever owned were stick. I haven't had one since college, then my friend's fiance bought a 6-speed and I got to help teach her how to drive it (gave him pointers).

    1. That's awesome! Long live the stick! :-)

  2. Love the look! I have a lovely orange top that I bought from a charity shop. I tend to wear it with an aubergine cardi, but will be looking for olive options : ) ...Emmannie

    1. Thanks! I love olive, I recently thrifted a pair of olive pants and I think they'll be super versatile too!

  3. Hi Faith! I love orange and army green together, and thrifting too! :) I wanted to tell you that I've nominated you for a Liebster award:

    I'd love for you to check it out.

    Happy Saturday to you!
