She Hath Done What She Could in the Home

Saturday, March 5, 2011


It was impossible for me to get dressed this morning without thinking of several of my blogging friends!

As I put on my sweater, I thought of my sweet friend, Debra, of I Dream of Anthropologie, who out of the goodness of her heart, thrifted this cardi and mailed it to me! It's amazing how you can become such good friends with someone over the miles by only connecting via the blogging world!

Since the cardi was a Cold Water Creek, I thought of Pam, at Over50Feeling40, because she always looks so great in her Cold Water Creek finds!

As I put on my Gap Tneck, I thought of Fabulous Florida Mom, and how she recommended these back in December on a super sale for about $7!

As I put on my Neutrogena Mineral Foundation I thought of Joy from Southern Comfort, because she recommended it and it rocks! As I applied it I thought of Lise, her partner in crime at the same blog, because I made sure to get it in the "bat cave" (around eyes)!

As I put on my C.O. Bigelow Mentha gloss, I thought of Molly, from My Closet Travels! I helped her with one teeny thing on her blog and she generously sent me a gift certificate to Bath and Body Works where I buy my all time favorite lip gloss!

As I put on my new Report shoes, that I found at Ross for $14 last night, I thought of Tricia, from Tricia's Take, and the cute Report shoes she wears! When I emailed her a pic of the shoes to tell her I thought of her, she said she had gone to Target today and thought of me!

As I put on my necklace, I thought of Lori, from Morning Glories and Moonflowers, and the great talent she had in making this necklace! She is a fellow homeschooling pal!

It makes me think of how powerful and influential blogging can be! I have been influenced by so many wonderful women over the past year. I hope that I can be an influence for good in return.

To quote the song from Wicked, "Because I knew you, I have been changed, for good".


Check them out! I just saw these at Nordstrom for $50- got them for $14!! Whoot-Whoot! I needed flats so badly!


  1. That cardigan looks fantastic on you - how sweet of Debra to pass along her great find! And I love the flats you scored at Ross - adorable!

  2. I often find myself thinking of fellow bloggers as well when I put together an outfit!

    Those shoes are awesome--Ross comes through again! The embellishment is too cute.

  3. Thanks Sweetie! You look amazing- as always! Glad I could be a part of it and that we are friends!:) Lori

  4. I think of other bloggers, too! It's amazing, isn't it? I can't see an add for Anthro without thinking of YOU! LOL
