Officially Missing You...

It's been a long time peeps!! I hope everyones week is off to a great start! Mondays are always hard for me, but I'm over that hump now.

My absence from blogging has been a three part issue:

#1. I haven't felt inspired. My outfits haven't been anything that I've wanted to take pics of lately. I feel like I've been wearing the same old things. I really need to clean my closet (again).

#2. I wanted to take a break. I did. Now I'm back. Truth is, I missed blogging & commenting on all of your blogs.

#3. Our camera is broken. Out of service. Down for the count. The pics in this post were taken with our iPad. I was debating on whether I would post them or not because of the horrible quality, but figured… Ah, what the hell.

BONUS reason: It's getting darker earlier these days, and that is putting a damper on my mood, as well as my blog life.

Thanks for hanging around with me! Y'all are the best!

Until next time...







 How funny is it that this cop was riding by as my daughter was snapping my pics, and asked me if I wanted to take a picture by his squad car! LOL! He wanted to be in the pic too!! HA!

I also wanted to add a pic of my new found hairstyle. Introducing the Faux Hawk!! I love it! =D

Opinions are like...

Hey peeps!! It's Friday Eve!! I know I shouldn't wish time away, but Friday 4pm can't come fast enough! It's been a long week, and I'm ready for some relaxation. Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?

On to the OOTD.

So, I walk into work last week with my white pants and leopard shoes, just KNOWING I'm killin it! lol! I didn't even get in the door good before a lady that I didn't know, and never seen before tried to bring me down from my stylish high. I'm struttin' and she says (with a weird smile on her face), "It's too late for white pants, isn't it?" Without skipping a beat, I turn to her and said, "Maybe for you!", and kept on walking.

I shook my head and giggled to myself. Once I got to my desk I tweeted a pic of my shoes and pants with the caption, #whogonecheckmeboo. All my Real Housewives of Atlanta fans will get that reference. lol

That moment reminded me of something that I've known for a long time. Everyone has opinions, and they're entitled to have them. Imma wear what I wanna wear regardless.

Until next time…

Weekend Girl...

Hey peeps! As usual, I hope you guys are enjoying the weekend. Being that I don't have to work tomorrow, I have a bit of extra pep in my step =D

The weather is beautiful. Right now it's 57 degrees and sunny. I know that's not considered beautiful for some of my warmer climate friends, but to us in Minnesota, it's a lovely Fall day. On to the OOTD.

To continue my stripes and legs theme from Summer into Fall, I'm wearing this cute as a button sweater dress from Old Navy. Hubby and I went to one of the outlet malls and the entire store was 40% off!! You know that sent my Spidey senses a-tinglin'! This dress ended up costing $11.96! It would have been a crime NOT to get it! ;) I decided to dress the look down and make it more casual.

I hope you guys aren't tired of my Moccasins already… because I'm far from it. These are a Fall staple for me. And here at Spoon Full of Sugar, you get ME! On another note, my hair is growing nicely. The afro is getting a little bigger these days, and I love it!

I have a blogiversary post coming up this week, with a lil sumthin-sumthin for my readers. I can't thank you guys enough for your constant support & love. Stay tuned.

Until next time…

Legs & Stripes...

Hey y'all! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend, and are enjoying your Sunday.

This post is my farewell to Summer. It was my first Summer blogging and I must say that I loved every second of it. I decided to post some of my favorite looks from the past few months.

In my adult life (after having children), I was never one to show my legs too much because I wasn't  confident that they were nice enough to be shown. Blogging kind of changed all of that. And because I feel in love with my legs, and apparently stripes at the same time, I dubbed this past season, "The Summer of Legs & Stripes".

I can't choose a favorite look, but I love the black & white striped skirt with the denim vest, and the brown pencil skirt with the pink top/shoes. My third favorite is the orange blazer with the jean cut-offs.

What have you learned about yourself this summer? Were you drawn to certain items or colors?

Until next time...

These Boots Are Made For...

Happy Humpday peeps!!

As you can see in the pics, Fall is in full swing here in Minnesota. The leaves have turned, and the air is getting cooler. Today is one of the last of "nicer" days because it was in the high 70's & sunny. The rest of our week looks a bit cooler, in the high 40's. Yup, I said high 40's. That's still relatively nice weather for us here, so I won't be complaining.

On to the OOTD...

I copped these boots over the weekend (on sale) and I love them. I was so excited to see them! Then I got nervous because every time I see knee boots that I love, they never fit over my calves. And the ones that do fit (and are reasonably priced), actually LOOK like they were made for bigger calves… I really don't like that. So, I reluctantly tried them on because they have a stretchy material on the back. Sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn't. This time it did!! =D I smiled and damn near ran to the register with them.

Not sure if you guys are sick of seeing my denim blazer, but I'm not sick of wearing it, so here we are again. Ha!

Overall, this was a super comfy outfit, and I felt great in it. Thats all that matters, right?

Until next time...
