Snuggling Up with a Good Book

4:00 AM

Lilly bug looks like a superhero in this picture ready to take on the world haha!

Sweat pants and sweat shirt:  Gifted (but probably Macy's or Lord & Taylor) // Slippers:  Poland // Furniture:  Ikea

You may be wondering why I’m not all dressed up in today’s post and why I look extremely comfortable.  Well first of all, yes I’m very comfortable, second of all I wanted to take the time and show all of my readers that I do sometimes need some time to relax.  I recently redid my entire space at home.  New wall color, new set up, new furniture, and I even made a small spot by my window for me to just sit and relax.  My mom and I have had coffee together here a few times and today I wanted to show all of you my little happy place.  My mom got me these sweatpants and sweatshirt (which I have been constantly wearing) for Christmas and the material makes me feel like I’m wearing a blanket.  She bought them for me because I’m always cold and walking around with a blanket like a weirdo haha!

Lilly of course loves (well needs) to be the center of attention.  I won’t be able to relax and just read a book for too long because she will jump in my lap.  I recently received the first 5 novels of The Wizard of Oz from a coworker for Christmas.  I’ve started reading it because it’s my favorite movie of all time.  I always wanted to read the original story because I’ve heard that it’s very different from the movie.  I’m excited to see what is in store for me in this book.  Plus, I love that it has metallic green/emerald color on the outside of the pages.

I also wanted to take blogging pictures like this to show everyone that I too sometimes don’t feel like dressing up and I feel like relaxing and being a bum.  Of course I usually try to do it in style (hence the fuzzy get up) but here’s proof that I’m not always dolled up and dressed to the nines!

Don't forget to come back tomorrow for the linkup!
