Going Green!

Hey everybody! Happy St. Patrick's Day! I challenged myself to wear green everyday from March 1st - March 17th! I got the idea from the sweet and talented Susan Opel! She did this last year, and I thought it was a great idea for a scrapbook layout! Then she did it again this year, and I decided at the last minute that I would give it a try! I really wanted to do a layout with the pics!


I'm not going to lie...it was HARD for me! Green is not my favorite color, and I didn't think I had as many pieces of green clothing! My son asked me one day, "So if you run out of green things to wear, do you have to go buy stuff?!" He just thought that was ridiculous! :) I did go and buy a couple of things that were on sale or on clearance. Then I got a terrible cold during the process, so it was hard to make myself get up and get dressed to take a pic! You can see one of the days, I was feeling so bad, that I wore "green" hand sanitizer instead! :)


I set my camera up a couple of times to take the pic myself and the other days I had Chance and the kids do it for me! I don't have very many pics of myself, so this was WAY out of my comfort zone to do! I don't think I will ever do the "Going Green" again, but I did think about doing pink or red for Feb. 1st - Feb. 14th! That would be alot easier, since I LOVE pink! :)


So here is a collage of my March 1st- March 16th.


And here is today, March 17th!

I found this shirt at Goodwill! The leaves look just like PTI's Turning A New Leaf set! I love it! :)
Well I better get off of here. Chace has tutorials to get ready for the Math TAKS, Autumn is doing a "mock" tryout for cheerleading today, because tomorrow is the BIG try-out, and Chace has a regional All-Star Basketball tournament game tonight! If they win...they are on their way to Nationals! Woo Hoo! :) So it's a busy, busy day! :)

Have a Blessed day!
~Winter

You look so cute in all your green tops, Winter! What a super fun idea this was. I may have to try it out too. :) I don't have very many green items in my closet, but perhaps I can pull off red/pink for the month of February. Hmmmmm....?!!?.... LoL... Now I have ideas running through my head. LoL... So glad you shared this with us!
