Thank you, all, so much for your sweet comments from my last post. There's still a bit of work to be done (by professionals, not us!) in the basement today, but after that we should all be good to go. As we drove to get groceries last night, my husband and I passed through a few neighborhoods where you could tell people also got flooded. I am just glad that we're all safe and that we managed to save some stuff.

I haven't been feeling very enthusiastic about dressing up since the weekend, but my newly-acquired floral jacket keeps on begging to be worn. It's still pinned at the back, but I wear it out anyway. It's relentless, and I'm powerless against it. Don't be surprised if you see this jacket in a bunch of posts soon. (Kidding!)

  2. This is a great floral jacket, no wonder you want to wear it. It's perfect with the rolled sleeves and the length is great too.

    Here's to a better week and no more flooding!

  12. OMG, if I had just gone through all that emotional and physical exhaustion of a flooded basement, I would be using it as an excuse to wear sweats for days. And you look incredible cute and pulled together. Your hair looks amazing too!

    Also, as a municipal employee myself, I totally respect those crews working so early in the morning to pump out the sewage. That takes some dedication!

  14. OH man...I am so sorry to hear about the flood. That's always the scariest thing living in the mid-west, flood damage.

    On the flip side, you look quite relaxed laura ;)

  16. Laura, it's so ironic. You blogged about the flood and just yesterday, the whole Metro Cebu was submerged in water. LIKE, OMG! Was stuck in the mall. It was hell!

    I feel you. Yep, I feel you.
