Walmart Turtleneck | Jeans | Similar Sneakers | Similar Sneakers | Similar Bracelet

I confess that I have worn this outfit 2 times this week (Monday and yesterday)…..I love it that much. I've always been a big fan of turtlenecks so when I saw this one from Walmart that is perfect for fall weather in the south, I was sold. I only regret not buying other colors as well.

This turtleneck comes in 6 different colors. I honestly would love them all.

Fit Tip: I am wearing a medium in the exact turtleneck and a size 8 in the exact jeans.

I've had these jeans for a while now and the ones I usually gravitate to are in my closet. They have stretch to them and the ab/waist technology is so comfortable! I highly recommend them.

It will be 1 year on January 20th that I haven't colored my hair.

White Blouse | Jeans | Ballet Flats | Similar Necklace | Similar Bracelet

I wore this outfit to run errands on Thursday. You can never go wrong with a classic white shirt. This one is from Chico's last year. I've linked a similar one above. I am wearing a size 1 in it. I'm wearing the same jeans as above.

DIrty hair didn't stop me from running errands. I've been washing my hair less since not coloring it. It has become dryer. I just use some dry shampoo, teased it a bit then put it in a low ponytail looped to make somewhat of a bun. They pulled out one tendril and gave it a quick curl.

Fit Tip: I'm wearing a size 1 in the blouse from Chico's, a size 8 in jeans, and size up 1/2 size in the Amazon flats.

This week has been a bit nuts. My husband was in the hospital a couple of days this week with gallbladder issues. He had one procedure on Tuesday and is having another in early November. He's doing great and is actually working in the yard a bit today. I didn't accomplish a lot this week, but that's ok!

Ashlyn is outside now with a saw and a metal blade to chop up her old trampoline. She's all for it…I'm just hoping that I'm not making another trip to the ER! Ha, ha!!!

We caught Jack scratching our grasscloth wallpaper in the area going back to the guest room yesterday. This is something that has happened in the last week. We are assuming that he is doing it at night. Y'all….I'm so upset. He has shredded a couple of areas. I think we are going to start locking him up in our bathroom at night. It is where we keep his food and litterbox. I did order this citrus spray. Fingers crossed. He doesn't like to be fussed at. We let my hubby handle disciplining him for it. He can't stand to be fussed at. I'll also be adding a second scratching post in the den area. The joys of a cat. Any advice?

Ugh…..we had a small leak in the guest room. Now I do have to repaint the ceiling. It's from our parapet brick walls. It's time to seal them again with this. I told you that it has been a week!

  1. Christy,

    It sounds like your cat’s inappropriate scratching may coincide with your husband’s health issue. Cat’s are intuitive. His behavior may be related.

    I would take him to the vet and tell the vet everything that is going on. Jack may have also developed a health issue. Or he may be stressed.

    We are in the process of relocating. When our cat, Oliver, began going outside of the litter box, we took him to the vet. The vet did not find any indication of any health issues, but she does believe that he is stressed out over all the changes associated with the move. Per the vet’s instructions, I am now giving him a low dose of sedative daily, and he is doing much better.

I love hearing from you!
