Preppy Look…

Ahhh…Barnes and Noble. Probably one of my most favorite places ever! I have so many memories in Barnes and Noble. When I first started out on this homeschooling journey, I would take my son here to do some of his schoolwork. When he was younger, I would take him there for story time. As he got older, he would do school work, I would drink coffee, and all was right in the world (tee hee). After our schooling session, I would set him loose to read. And read he did! The kid devours books at such a speed that I cannot even begin to explain. He reminds me of myself with his love of reading. I would (and still do) stay up all hours of the night with a good book. I now use my tablet for a lot of reading because if my hubby wants to go to bed, I don’t want to keep him awake with the light. The feel of a book in my hands will never get old.

Barnes and Noble is also very special for me because Milton and I sometimes go there to read and brainstorm together. When I was trying to find different cupcake flavors, ideas, and techniques, I spent a lot of time there. Again, any meeting that involves people that I love, coffee, and books, is the place for me. I  even enjoy reading the textbooks that I have to read for school. (So weird haha).

Do you notice the book that I’m holding? The one about how to boil water? Ya, true story. I don’t know what happened to me. I used to cook…all the time. I moved off campus after the first two years in college, and I had to fend for myself. To make matters worse (or better?), I was a vegetarian for 10  years, so I had to cook. I even used to cook a lot a lot for my hubby for the first few years of marriage. Then things changed. My love of baking quickly took over. For me, cooking involves everything being gourmet and being made-from-scratch (just the way I like my baked goods). I really don’t have time for that now with all that I’m doing. And Milton likes to cook, so I don’t get in his way when he’s in the kitchen 🙂

So I figured that wearing a preppy-looking outfit was only fitting for the environment. This argyle sweater boasts one of my favorite designs, and it goes so well with my embellished sandals. The sweater is sleeveless, thus the cover-up. For another modest look, wear this sweater over a long/short sleeved shirt. I also had my puppy, Princess Molly, in her little bag, sitting on a chair while I had my pictures taken. Most people don’t even know she’s in there. She’s extremely quiet.

Well, I’m about to go start reading a book for a book club. I’ll fill you in on the details of it soon. What’s your favorite hobby? Or what’s your favorite place to ‘hang.’

Thanks for reading!

PS. Here is a picture of my son that I took and that he wanted me to post. I LOVE it because of the bokeh effect (which means that the subject is sharp, but the background is blurred).
