Of jean shorts, sparkles, and hair cuts

Can plain old jean shorts ever be cute?  These darned things have been sitting in my closet for several years and, I admit, they haven't gotten much wear.  Today I decided I needed to either wear them or get rid of them.  So naturally, I wore them.  I also got my hair cut and colored this morning (FINALLY), so overall it has been a pretty good day so far...



What I'm Wearing:
Top: Threads 4 Thought (via Maurices)  | Shorts:  Faded Glory  | Shoes:  Simply Vera  
Cat Pendant Necklace: Versona Accessories

I'm feeling very sparkly in this outfit today, which isn't usually my style. Virtually everything I'm wearing has some kind of sparkle, from the sequins in the shoes, to the sparkles in the shirt detailing, and the rhinestones on my kitty pendant.  It's actually kind of a fun change! For me, the jury's still out whether or not I hang onto these shorts. At least I got SOME wear out of them today!  They have to EARN their keep in my closet, since I'm trying to "thin the herd" (so to speak) in anticipation of the move to my NEW HOUSE.

Speaking of the new house...I get the keys TOMORROW!  

I still can't believe it! I'm not sure how much posting I'll be able to do over the next several days, because I'll be spending a lot of time in the new house painting and moving smaller items over.  Move-in weekend isn't until later on this September, but I'm planning on using the next couple of weeks to make it JUST the way I want it before I fill it with furniture.

The feline overlords will, I think, be well pleased with their new digs.  For now they are sequestered upstairs in my parents' house (where I'm currently living), well away from the resident dogs.  I think they'll appreciate having more room to roam!

In addition to getting my keys, I am also attending the wedding of an old, dear friend (we met when we were assigned as locker partners in the FIRST GRADE.  How time flies!).  Clearly the next few days are going to be eventful, to say the least!  Does anyone else have any fun plans for this Labor Day weekend?
