Loving Life In My New Favorite Dress

 Surprise surprise, another Target find.  I don't know if it's just me, but everyday feels like the movie Groundhogs Day.  Wake up, put on my stretch pants outfit, kids distance learn, laundry etc.  In the state of Oregon we are still very shut down and quarantined (a word I will be so happy to ex-communicate from my vocabulary . . . hopefully soon.)  I have gotten used to my "home outfit."
