I could run hurdles in these. Not that I’m going to.2.16.15outfit-shoes22.16.15outfit-nails2.16.15outfit-skirt1February’s half-over and March is on its way. Maybe I’ll get a homestay student to stay with me next month, maybe not. I keep being about to get one, then the program keeps cancelling on me at the last minute, which leaves me 20 lbs of extra tortillas at home with no one to feed them to. Lil Tot and I soldier on with many quesadillas and burritos.

2.16.15outfit-full5Hope everyone’s having a great start to the week!
