And it’s brought to you by the Letter B because we are talking about my BLANKET SCARF (yes, again) and my BARRINGTON TOTE (yes, again), my nephew BRODY, I’m promising a BACHELOR recap, and giving you some choices for BLACK JEANS 🙂
You all have been so sweet sending me messages about my dad, so I wanted to give you a quick update. He was released from the hospital yesterday and is doing much better. Thank you so much for all of your prayers! He is still quite tired and I’m guessing it will take a bit for him to be back to normal, but we are very thankful for how far he has come already! Since my mom takes care of my sister’s baby full-time, I took over some of the baby duty for the last couple of days
And I might have forgotten how busy a 16 month old is.
But I’m not complaining, because I also forgot how good 16 month old baby snuggles are too.
Love my Brody bear.
One more thing before getting to today’s post…The Bachelor recap post will be up tomorrow morning!
Or maybe tomorrow afternoon.
Or maybe Friday.
Here’s the deal, I’m not sure when I’ll finish, but it WILL happen.
Because OH MY GOSH at the material.
There is so much to say.
First of all, to Prince Farming (I can’t take credit for that….that little jewel is straight from some genius at ABC), I’m praying for you.
I’m also praying for your mother.
Keep checking back for my thoughts on crazy ballerinas, crazy eyes, and crazy dresses. 🙂
I posted the following pic on instagram on Monday night…and I got my most IG likes EVER!
It seems like you girls are excited for the recaps…and I have to tell you….I’m actually excited about writing themQ
Spoiler Alert: I hear it’s the most dramatic season ever.
So for today’s PTMT recreation, this was my inspiration:
(The Pinterest link took me to a tutorial on how to knit a headband. Um, no thank you.)
So, here’s how I did it.
I’d like to say the Christmas tree is still behind me because I took the pictures last week.
And while that is technically true, the Christmas tree is still up. I’m guessing it will get taken down this weekend. Fingers crossed.
Anyway, here’s how I did it with items I already had!
This is one of those times that my outfit isn’t an exact copy…but I took the “vibe” from the inspiration picture and made it my own (with items in my closet)!
Otherwise it just kind of lays across the scarf and looks awkward.
If you want to recreate the outfit yourself, you can SHOP THE LOOK by clicking on the pictures you are interested in below (scroll right for more items). The coated black skinny jeans pictured below just went 40% OFF this morning!
And I want you to pay special attention to THIS white tee! I don’t have this exact one, but I’m always getting asked for a great white tee recommendation (and I don’t really love the 2 I have). After reading many of the reviews, I’m thinking this could be a great option!
And it’s ONLY $25 (with free shipping and free returns)!
You ladies know that I’m a BIG FAN of my Barrington bag and the entire Barrington Gifts company.
AND REMEMBER, THE CODE PTMTSHIP4FREE will probably still work and get you FREE SHIPPING!
another wedge boot option HERE from Nine West that are 40% OFF!
And here’s the first time you saw it on me:

Over 450 5 STAR REVIEWS for this tee!

I know you haven’t been seeing them much on the blog, but I’ve got a really good reason for that.
I lost them for a bit.
Yes, I lost my jeans.
I found them just last week in my closet between my laundry hamper and the wall.
And, with me, it’s apparently out of site out of mind.
But I really do love them.
Here’s a graphic from the post where I was proving to us all that Pinterest thinks we all need a pair of black jeans. And you know, I rarely argue with Pinterest.
Anyway….look! The picture I recreated today was in the collage!
I’m thinking that I’ll be doing the white tee with the leopard cardi and turquoise jewelry next!
Anyway, my black jeans are sold out…but here are some great options for you at varying price points!
See you girls back here tomorrow or Friday for The Bachelor recap!
