I did it! Sort of...

Okay guys, I published my first post on WordPress. I know it's a pain in the tush to go back and forth but honestly, I don't have the time or patience to import everything over so I think I'm just going to start fresh from there. Here's a photo preview though. :)

Check out the first post here and let me know what you think!

Don't forget to update your reader and/or blogroll with the new site!

Daily MelWear: Hello World!

Hey, look what I can do! I can BLOG! Or something

You guys are so awesome. Thank you SO much for all of the very, very sweet comments on my last post, the Facebook messages, the Tweets, the emails...it means a lot to know you've missed me {almost} as much as I've missed you!

So let's get caught up again, shall we? Hm...I'm still working. Still a single mom. Still not independently wealthy (stupid lotto...). Still like to play dress up. That about sums it up. My daughter and I have started looking to buy a house, there's some fun news. Let's see if it takes us half a decade or not. I'm hoping not. 

My girl has been doing FABULOUSLY in VPK this year. I can't believe it's already time to get her registered for Kindergarten. We want to get her into a charter school nearby, so this morning was spent getting everything done to apply there. Now we just have to wait a couple of MONTHS (seriously?!) to hear if she's in or not. That seems too long. 

Oh wait, this is supposed to be a style blog, right? Well...I did wear this outfit today. I know it's winter and all, but guys, I live in Florida. It's almost 80 degrees today. This sweater is perfect because it's cool and breezy and short-sleeved, but it's seasonally appropriate too. In the interest of full disclosure, I will admit that the heels came off for flip flops later only because I got my toenails painted. 

Now my girl is napping (i.e. lying in her bed, talking and singing to herself and claiming she isn't sleepy), I'm having a beer and blogging, and tonight will be dance class then going to Perkins to visit her favorite server because they share the same name.

So there you have it, my life in a nutshell. Exciting, no? 

My hope is to be able to post a couple times a week. I'm not going to stress if I can't though. Real life has to come first. I opened a WordPress account too, but I think importing will be way too much for me so I might just start blogging from there and ask you all to subscribe to that feed instead. Be on the lookout for that. 

Hope you're having a fabulous Friday and that you have an exciting weekend planned! Mine includes shopping for Valentines for my daughter to hand out. I live on the edge, y'all. 

Today's outfit:
Purple Sweater: Kohl's
Black Tank: Target
Jeans: Salvation Army
Leopard Belt: Wal-Mart
Heels: Rack Room
Wow, this makes me look pregnant. I assure you, I most definitely am NOT. I need to lay off the chocolate, maybe. Geez.

Is This Thing On?



I've missed you all. Tons.

I stopped writing because life got busy. Then life changed, and became a different kind of busy. God has been doing lots of things in my life these past few months, including revealing a lot of truths that I've missed most of my life.

I'm excited. I'm hopeful. I have stirrings in my heart for lots of good things and I'm waiting on His timing so I don't miss out on His best for me.

And while I'm waiting, I've been thinking about how much I miss my bloggy friends (that means YOU - you're a bloggy friend whether you write your own blog or not!) and while I know I don't have the time to commit to posting every single day, I think I might want to dive back in once or twice a week. Just see how things go.

Because really. I've missed you.

I'm also considering starting up a Wordpress blog, all shiny and new, rather than transporting this one over. Maybe.

So how've you been?
