What I Wore Sunday, Furnace-less Edition

Here we are again: it’s What I Wore Sunday time!

But first, an update on our heating situation after the furnace explosion of a few nights ago.  The repairman says our furnace flame box blew, which made the exhaust pipe of the furnace break in two.  Thankfully, Pat’s boss is letting us borrow his honkin‘ space heater, so we don’t have to keep the fireplace going 24/7 anymore.

The repairman is checking to see if a new flame box is available for our furnace, which is the original in our 1963 house.  If not, and we’re guessing it’s not, we need to replace our furnace. So now we’re considering our options: oil furnace, gas furnace, electric heat pump, geothermal electric heat pump, electric furnace, wood stove, wood furnace, pellet stove, coal furnace, coal stove.  It’s overwhelming.  I want someone to just come and tell us what the right option is.  Does anyone have any insight here?

But on to more important matters: my sister Lizzie has expressed a preference for “natural settings” for fashion blog posts, as opposed to closet doors and blank walls.  Well, here ya go, Lizzie.  My native backdrop, au naturale.

Speaking of Lizzie, we got a package from her on Friday.  Amazing.  Girl 2 will be finely decked out for every Sunday for months to come.


Girl 1 got a new dress too.


She accessorized in time for another Lizzie-requested feature: What I Wore to WalMart.


wish I were kidding.

  1. Love the purple (and your hair looks lovely), and of course G1 is adorbs. Lizzie is the little elf, isn’t she?? I guess she justified Black Friday online shopping if she did it for other people (Lizzie, are you reading this?). xxoo
