I've been having so much trouble loading pics in blogger lately. I wanted to share a few more, yes more, but I have to upload them in reverse order. I can only move pictures I have loaded up, not drag them further down in the post. Anyone have any tips? I used to be able to do it. (insert frustrated sigh here.)

Cowboy Boots

Jeans and a crisp white blouse
Now, I certainly don't look like this in my jeans and crisp white blouse. But to me, this is my favourite look and favs to wear. And of course, crisp only lasts so long with my clumsy ways and my kids, but I'll take almost crisp and a snotty kiss from a kid any day.

I was inspired to share a few of my favourite things by Annicole  at Our Suburban Cottage and I am linking to the party at Girly Stuff .
Edited to add: I'm joining in at 320 Sycamore's My Favourite Things Party
