We had a heck of a thunderstorm hit us this morning. Knocked out our power all day. I had to email my boss to say I'd be in later because it felt like tropical storm Debby had pushed through overnight, ignored Florida, and opened a can of whoop arse on Connecticut!
So I'm putting off theme week until I can do it up right next week. Cause I'm sure you don't want to see me in my jeans, tee, half completed hair (got in a blow dry but no flat iron before the entire town got zapped), and no makeup. Luckily we have a gas stove at home that can be used to heat up food with just a flick of the lighter. And that's how my breakfast went down this morning while waiting it out. Dear hubby got the day off as he works from home. No electric, no workie. The only thing we really worry about in storms that take out our power is our sump pump. Until I moved up north, I had no idea what a sump pump was (drains water out of basements). Not until we had a freak electric outage and woke up the next morning to three inches of water in our basement. Can you say basement remodel?
So while browsing through J's Everyday Fashion at lunch today, and catching up on my blog reading, I saw she bought this sparkly number from Kohl's for only $8. Well that's my kind of shopping! And then I spotted its cousin and scooped her up, too! Why she was more expensive, I have no idea. But I found a couple of coupon codes online (30% off and free shipping) and ended up paying only $17 for the both of them.
