Daily Threads: Yellow




I'm not one to share pictures of my hiney, but I will show off my elbow patches. I'm not sure why I wanted a sweater with elbow patches so badly, but I did. And when I was casually browsing Target's clothing aisles and saw this, I had to. We had cool weather this weekend - so sweater, leggings, and boots were a must. I'm sure we'll be warming back up this week. 

My grandmother is slowly making progress. She walked around in her room with physical therapy Sunday and her diet has been upgraded to full-liquid (which is creamy soups, pudding, and yogurt - instead of broth and juice). She still has a ways to go - so I'm hoping and praying she gets up and moves more and eats well these next couple of days. 

My mom flew back to NC this weekend as she had some work-related things that had to be done. She and dad are coming back later on in the week. I told her there was no reason for her to stay while Sadie is stable in a room - the nurses are taking care of her and I can stop in any time of the day. My sweet mother-in-law is heading over today to come visit with Sadie - I know Sadie is more than thrilled as I have heard her tell everyone she talks to that her granddaughter's mother-in-law is coming to visit her! 

Let's hope this week goes by smoothly and I can get back to a schedule! Happy Monday!

LOVE the necklace. And you can never go wrong with the legging/boot convo. Not sure how I feel about elbow pads..but after seeing you wear this outfit...I'm becoming a fan!

Love the sweater! I'm actually looking for a coat with elbow patches, don't know why but they look kind of classy and retro to me!
