Summer in December

I woke up again this morning to snow in Memphis!  It also snowed the day after Christmas, but I had to work so I didn’t even get to enjoy it.  And by snow, I really just mean a few flurries.  Nothing stuck to the ground this morning, but it was still nice being off work, lying in the bed and watching it through the window.  It looks pretty, and it might even be fun for a minute, but I am longing for summer again.  It’s not that I mind the cold.  I actually like it and what comes with it (snowskiing), but I’m ready for the beach, the sun, pina coladas and all that good stuff.  I think my love of summer must have inspired my outfit choice today.  It’s 33 degrees outside, but I just had to throw on a beautiful coral colored top.  I put on a scarf with it, so that counts right?  Totally winter ready.

After I ran a few errands this morning and did a little shopping, I went by Plato’s Closet to sell a few items that hadn’t sold yet on eBay or Poshmark.  I always use eBay and Poshmark first because you get much more money for your designer clothing.  I save any items I may have from Old Navy, American Eagle, etc. for Plato’s Closet.  You basically get just a little more than you would at a yard sale.  I took them 5 items and got $11.90.  Big money.  It’s all about the Benjamins baby or in my case the Washington and the Hamilton.

When I was taking pictures today and getting ready to type up this post, I didn’t notice that
pretty much every picture has something to do with summer.  It was my self counscious, I promise.  = )  My husband and I moved downtown a little over 4 months ago so we are still trying to get settled in and get more furniture for our screened in porch.  At our old house, we just had one tiny slab of concrete for our back patio, so we’ve been buying a lot of outdoor furniture to furnish the patio and the porch at our new house.  This is what we have so far.  It’s really coming along.  All of the pieces you see below are from the Ciudad Modular Collection at Pier One, and I got all of the pillows on eBay for free with my $120 in eBay bucks I had saved up.  I got a lot of Pier 1 gift cards for Christmas though, so they will definitely be put to good use just as soon as they mark their outdoor furniture on sale!  Have a great weekend and don’t forget about the giveaway.  It ends Monday, December 31 at 11:59pm CST.
