If I could live in flannel during the winter, I so would. The material is soft, it’s a great layering piece and it gives me pops of color in an otherwise dreary time of year. I’m showing you how I styled this flannel shirt for fall from a recent excursion to the State Fair of Texas.
Would you believe me if I told you I’ve only been to the State Fair of Texas twice since I’ve lived in Texas?? I moved to Texas in 1999 and I’ve only been twice. How sad is that?!?! LOL What’s even crazier is that I’ve never been to Six Flags since I’ve been here either. My parents would travel to Dallas every other year to take us to Six Flags but I’ve never been since I’ve lived here full time. So lame.
I did manage to ride the Ferris Wheel while I was there and sneak a Fletcher’s Corny Dog. Wasn’t a huge fan of the corn dog. That was kind of let down considering it’s like THE food you are supposed to find at the State Fair of Texas.
Missing out on the fair from year to year is definitely a lesson in getting out and doing more things. More of that self-care that I keep talking about. I am working on reading more. And making it a point to make sure I read. It’s so easy to get swept away into a book. I’m reading The Guestbook by Andrea Hurst right now and it sucked me right on in once I started it.
It seems like I do a lot more reading in the darker months of the year. Probably for comfort and probably because it just feels like I should be curled up with a book. I’m curious if you feel that way. Do you read more in a particular season over the others?
I’d also love to know what you’ve been reading lately. I think the last 5 books I’ve read have been REALLY good. I plan on doing a post about what I’ve read lately – to share some of those books. I’ve been trying to dwindle down my TBR pile on my Kindle before I start investing in anymore books. I have SO.MANY.TO.READ. But I can’t complain. 🙂
Tell me what’s on your reading list and what you’re currently reading!!
