Stitch Fix Review: 4.0

You know what is more exciting than seeing that your latest Stitch Fix has shipped?

Nothing.

Absolutely nothing is more exciting...so, when I saw on Monday that my fix had already shipped I, of course, was ecstatic and immediately peeked at my order. (How do you peek, you say? Well, you "go to checkout" and voila, there are the contents of the fix that is on its way to you! Just make sure you don't actually "checkout" yet...)

As I compulsively checked the tracking information and then saw my fix was arriving one day early...then TWO days early I was giddy!! And then..."Package could not be delivered in a secure place." WHAAAAAAAAA? Quickly remedied by a phone call to the P.O. Phew. Crisis averted!

Without further ado...following is the super quality fashion show of my latest fix.

First up...this outfit. The Liverpool Reagan Skinny Pants were ADORABLE. Buuuuuut, kinda trendy? And for nearly $100 (well, okay, $88), I was getting cold feet about buying them and then having them be obsolete next winter. I think I'll jump on the plaid bandwagon with less commitment...like a scarf. However, they also fit like a glove. So, there was that. But...ugh. What a dilemma. 



The shirt? RD Style Angus Split Back...can I just say something here? Who invented split back shirts? Cuz I'd kinda like to kick 'em where it counts...I mean, they split right across your butt, making it look like your butt exploded right out of your shirt. No. Just...no.



Next up, Calandra Side Button Poncho...I pulled this bad boy out of the box and thought, "Well, great. If our power goes out, the whole family can snuggle up inside this GINORMOUS poncho to keep warm." But then I put it on and something magical happened. It just...flowed. And hung in all the right ways and did it still feel big? Yes. But not big in a bad way...and then my husband told me I looked "super cute" and HELLO. If your husband uses the words "super cute" it MUST be good! (For the record, my fashionista teenage daughter also concurred.)



Finally...Beetlejuice, beetlejuice, BEETLEJUICE!!!!! 



This 41Hawthorn Benson Blazer (ugh...does anyone else hear "blazer" and think shoulder pads and 1980 with Farrah Faucett hair?!) reminded me of "Beetlejuice" from the second I saw it when I peeked at my order. Some people tried to tell me fun ways to wear it...but I just couldn't get past the Beetlejuice feel to it! Also, it was a bit snug. However, it was absolutely LUSCIOUS. So soft and thick and stretchy and just...wow. But no. And under it? The Sam Hi-Lo Tee which was, well, a tshirt and I think it was supposed to be a looser fit and $44 for a tshirt?! I just couldn't.



I think it goes without saying that this was a 1/5 fix...that poncho did it for me and the pants I would've totally gone for if I had the 25% buy 5 discount, but alas, back they went, along with the rest of it!

And, *sob* *sniffle* *tear*, I've done the responsible adult thing and delayed my fixes until February because: Christmas. Mama can't be spending good money on herself when there are oodles of presents to be purchased!!

Interested in treating yourself over the holidays? Maybe need a good gift for that hard-to-buy-for person on your list? Sign up for Stitch Fix and get started!

Our Colorado Trip

One week ago today, I had skied myself down a mountain (several times) and survived.

Oh, you guys...Colorado has captured my heart. I loved our vacation like you wouldn't believe and while I am not (nor will I ever be) a world class skier (let's be honest, greens are where you'll find me...and I won't be whizzing down them, either!), the mountains and the skiing and the fresh air and the walking everywhere? I grabbed a hold of me and doesn't seem to be making any moves to let go!


Check out this view from our hotel room!!


I just told someone today, "If I had had my kids with me, I'm not sure I would've come back." I felt so healthy and vibrant and alive...ugh, I wanna go back!

Funny story, the first evening we were in Beaver Creek, we walked down to the village and I got my first real look at the ski runs...I thought, "Huh. They don't look so bad." and we went about our business and had supper and went ice skating and tucked ourselves in…

Sludge.

Grief...it's like a thick sludge, hard to wade through, difficult to know which way is up, feeling like you'll never get out of it.
Today was a rough day. I'm not sure if it was just setting in, or that grief coupled with today being Baby Girl's and my birthday, was just a bad combination, but whatever it was, I found it hard to keep the tears at bay.
Just when I thought I'd have it pulled together, I'd hear or read the words, "I'm sorry", or field a phone call, or think about the amazing outpouring of love and support...and the tears would flow. Fast and furious.
I've discovered that my rock, my strength, comes from being around family; specifically, my husband. When I'm alone, the thoughts and memories coming flooding in and the tears come pouring out. My brother-in-law, Verd, was an amazing man. Actually, "amazing" doesn't even do him justice, I wish I could find a word great enough to describe the kind of man he was.

My heart…

What I've learned.

Tomorrow marks the return to a "new reality" for our family.
After a couple of good days, I know everyone is apprehensive about what tomorrow will bring. I guess we'll just have to see.
This past week has taught me a lot...not the least of which was how many lives my brother-in-law had touched. Over 2,500 people waited in line, each for about 2 hours, to pay their respects to him at his wake. I was blown away...we were ALL blown away. At his funeral, the church held more people than it had ever held before...Christmas mass and Easter Sunday included.
Our priest was even amazed.
I also learned, probably most importantly, just what an amazing family I married into. Just how wonderful they all are, how strong they all are, how faithful they all are. As I spent this week "disconnected", I realized I was more connected than I had ever been...to my family.
I learned that the things that matter most in life are those that can't have a value placed on them. It's no…
