One of the responses really caught my attention was from ~Oct who said, "I read many more blogs than I comment upon. Yours for example. I tend not to comment when there are a multitude of comments already present. However, who can resist a list of questions that allows self commentary? :)"
Well ~Oct, I had no idea you were a regular reader and really, you should comment no matter how many comments anyone has if you want to say something. I read every comment I get and believe me girl, I'm in no danger of being such a 'big' blogger than I won't have time to read. In fact that idea sort of cracks me up! Besides, how I find new blogs is often because someone comments on mine or I keep reading that person's comments on another blog I read.
Speaking of comments, I've had just one further thought based on some of the comments on the Self Control blog. This is really more of a clarification as I think some people took how I perceive self control wrong. I have no desire to control food, neither do I want it to control me. What I desire is to control myself - exercise that self control muscle as it pertains to healthy eating - the same way I control myself with exercise and financial matters.
Before I even start this section, I want to state a disclaimer that I was not copying Kristen's post! I did this section a full day before I read hers! But in the great minds think alike category...
Remember this dress from Tarjay? Here is the blue version of it. Once again I paired it with neutral rather than white shoes. My little legs need the length! Have to admit, easy dress, some sandals, basic jewelry has been my uniform all summer. Maybe a bit lazy but I think I look fairly neat and professional for work.
The necklace (which is blocked by my hand - but hey, that camera hand is also hiding my double chin!) is a small sapphire that was a gift from Mr. Helen. The set had earrings but I don't want to be that fancy or matchy for work so I wore simple white gold hoops.
Here's a closeup of the shoe. These are Carlos Santana sandals that I found on a clearance rack at least 5 years ago. Very comfortable to wear all day long. The ankle bracelet was a gift from my sister when she went to Mexico. Not sure of what the gemstone is in it. The toes are OPI Shorts Story.
We'll call this Fingers and toes Friday, OK? Went with a basic French manicure this time. Mr. Helen prefers color polish but once in a while, especially in the summer when I have a bit of a tan, I like the clean look of a French.
