i feel pretty, and witty, (not) gay...............................{tongue in cheek tuesday}

Welcome to my first time participating in Tongue in Cheek Tuesday!

I've met so many new friends and have encountered so many wonderful link parties since I started blogging.  But I have to confess, I've never been so excited as when Danni at Silo Hill Farm invited me to participate in "Total Couture Tuesday" (a decision I'm sure she regrets now).

Because I'm a flannel fashionista.

Let's face it ladies...above all, it's important for us to look good for our men.

Now, I do have a "real" job that I go to several days a week.  And the moment I wake up...before I put on my makeup...I say a little prayer for ME.

Anyway, I slap on some face cream and mascara, dry my hair, spritz with hairspray, and throw on some suitable clothing.  Well, sometimes.

But the REAL magic comes on the days I'm at home and my Horney Honey is off for a hard day's work.  Those are the days when I can really take the time to sexy myself up so that when he walks in that door...   

Oh, My Chicks, the lust that pours from his pores when I greet him...Why, he can barely keep his hands off me!

Now, about my favorite en-sem-blayThis is the one I wear the most, because it totally gets his motor running.  I like to call this "Flannel and Fleece."  Kind of reminds me of "Crimson and Clover...Over and Over."

It’s alarming how charming I feel...
And so pretty...
That I hardly can believe I’m real...

I have some of the best bed-head in the universe.  My husband says I look like Barf.  I don't see the resemblance.  (Pay no attention to the...uh....camel toe.)

Back to my outfit.  Let's start with the tank top...this was a sa-weet deal from Wal-Mart on clearance for $1.00. Can you believe it??  I bought several in many color combos, because they go with absolutely nothing.

And those pants...whoa... Aéropostale!   Yes, this 40-something Mama can still ROCK the clothing from the teen store with the best of them!  Again...clearance.  Didn't you know that turquoise is super-duper HOT right now??

And the Pièce de Résistance...my jacket/cover-up/blazer...I'm not sure how we want to categorize it.  My Honey says it's a CPO jacket.  I'm not sure what that means, so I call it my TCBY Yogurt Jacket.  I bought this on clearance (again!  I know!) at Kohl's when I was pregnant with my oldest.  He's now 22, so isn't it A-MA-ZING how these things just stay in style all these years?? 

Oh yes, My Sweets, I am taking the "no more matchy-matchy" rule to an entirely new level.  Sometimes when I want to switch things up just a little, I trade out my pants for some Snoopy action.

But one must not overlook footwear.  You guessed it...clearance at Wal-Mart.  One Dollah!  These sweet little Croc-offs have saved me.  And you see those paint spatters?  All the rage.  And see those fuzzy blue (turquoise) balls?  Yep, those came off my Aéro sweatpants.

My shoes have blue balls.

Seriously, you need to get some of these.  They are cutting-edge couture.

Now, the only reason I look this good in these photos is because of my photographer.  He's AWESOME, no??  He's got QUITE the eye.

Now I want to share with you a typical day when my Honey and I are getting ready to go work in our "workshop" (basement card table with a bedsheet covering it).

I know I know...I would NEVER appear in public looking like this...so embarrassing.  And no, this is definitely NOT a picture of us at our niece's wedding.  In Arizona.  Where we spent HOURS trying to make ourselves presentable.

We never EVER make funny faces.  How immature.

Talk about your Extreme Ho-Makeover.

Well, I just have to thank our Hostesses again for giving us all the opportunity to really showcase our fashion trends.  We must always be PROUD of our fashion statements.

I know sometimes I tend to be quite self-defecating -deprecating.  And I must stop!  Because that just stinks.

Thanks Total Couture Tuesday!  You're a lifesaver!

Post Scriptum: My editor just told me this post might not be considered "PC."  

Pork Chop?
Pee Cup?
Poop Crack?

<Sigh>... I just really don't understand.

The hostesses!

  1. OH Andi - YOU ARE HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!
    Is that John Candy LMHO............my favorite fellow Canadian!
    You're in good company my friend!
    Love the shot of you embracing the sun and all it's glory
    Are we a bunch of sexy mama's or what?
    This is too too funny

  2. Oh. Em. Gee! This is HILARIOUS!!! This outfit is surprisingly like some I own. Thanks for participating!

  3. BEST POST EVER!! Honestly I thought my hubby that was turned on/off
    by my BEAUTIFUL ensembles. Looking at you is like a reflection of myself..Now I know why he greets me with that look in his eye...(of oh my GOSH what the heck is she wearing now) LOL!
    I love this post and will be sharing it on my Facebook page, so I can give all my readers the correct fashion advice!!
    You make that flannel look GREAT!

  4. Andi..I just love you! I totally spit my coffee right out and then snorted some right up my nose!! That fence shot may be my favorite...although the bird one is pretty funny! You may be ruining your blog rep hanging out with us and I'm not sure if it's a compliment or not to say, you fit right in!!

  5. Ummm crying, I so wish we had Walmart it looks like a place I belong in!

  6. Ok, I had to contain my laughing out loud while my grand kids are here. I mean how do I explain in a mature way I'm laughing because I read the words pee cup and poop crack?

  7. Stacy and Clinton say: it doesn't have to match, it just has to 'go', and 'go' is open to interpretation.
    "Croc-offs" ahahahaha.

  8. I love that you dress to impress your man. I wrote my tict post all about that too! Great minds think alike...I need me more flannel!! That is exactly what my wardrobe is missing!

  9. This is great!! What a hoot you gave me this morning!

  10. All hail Walmart!!! You are too hilarious!! I came to visit through TICT and I'm now sooo following you. You are one serious fashion boundary pusher!! lol.

  11. LOL at the last picture, that's great!

  12. You look just like a Sun Goddess in the fence shot. Your photographer certainly has the eye(s) for his camera work - he made you PC - pure couture! I am afraid - very afraid - I thought the tank and the fleece did match!

  13. You have it going on! Thanks for not bowing to PC. You are too funny!

  14. Love your outfit! You are rocking it!

  15. I am laughing so hard, I am worn out, and it is barely 7:00 a.m.!!! Thank you so much for participating, this is my favorite!

  16. I used to dress to please my man. Until he started working at home and now looks worse than me most of the time! Thanks for your wonderful insight to how to keep your man happy and turned on. I'm off to walmart to find some tank tops...

  17. LOL ANDI. the photo of you posing all sexy against that shed made me LITERALLY LOL. love it. so funny. you are hilarious.

  18. Good lawd, you are funny!

    I have those Walmart tanks! I wear them until they literally fall apart!

    Love your look! Mine is somewhat similar, but switch out that damned robe of mine for your flannel.

    Thanks for the use of blue balls and for visiting my blog- so glad I found yours!

  19. I came to check out your site after you left a nice comment on mine and I am sitting here almost in tears! I am heading straight for your email sign up thingamajig because I could use a regular dose of you. You're a hoot :)

  20. Ah ha ha ha ha....just read this again a year later and it's still funny. Cameltoe.

  21. I can't believe you said ni__le.

  22. You've always cleaned up well but why make poor Phil play Alvin and the Chipmunks? (No commas ... easier this way.)

  23. I have saved many of these images. The next time you're mad at me, which seems to be daily, look out.


SAY SOMETHING! You know you want to.
