OOTD - Snowflakes and IHOPs

This sequined top of mine had been sitting in my closet for the last century, but after I saw Kim in a sequined cardi, it prompted me to drag it out of my closet. Kim had been inspired by Courtnee and I had been inspired by Kim. And maybe I can inspire another blogger and that blogger could in turn inspire another blogger, and soon we'd have a blog world that is bombarded with sequins. Now wouldn't that be lovely? Or not?
When my daughter saw me in this top, she said, "Mommy, you look like you have snowflakes on your shirt."
And it reminded me of something Bette Midler once said - "I always try to balance the light with the heavy - a few tears of human spirit in with the sequins and the fringes."
Bette Midler and sequins aside, I hope all of you had a lovely Christmas. Today, I woke up late and my husband and I felt like lazy bums. So we packed the kids in the car and headed over to IHOPs for a late brunch. Here's my OOTD and a few pics at the pancake house.

***And that's my lil pooch Chloe laying on the floor (just in case you think it's dirty laundry that I didn't bother to pick up).

    Jen - I miss you on your blog and I'm having GG withdrawal symptoms. Arggh, can't wait till the next season! Does it air the same time in the Land of Oz as it does in Hamburger a Go Go Land?

    Cee - Yay! You've inspired me TONs. I still want a bal bag, but I'm afraid I can't afford it :-(

    Lisa to Lisa - Happy Hols to you too. And we can't have too many Lisa's in this world. And girrrrl, I RESPECT THE SHOES!!! :-)
