hello everyday jeans, hello monday

***Hello Monday is where I greet the new week with an open heart and a fresh perspective. It’s a new beginning–and there’s so much to be thankful for! Join me by leaving your own hellos in the comments section or linking up a hello monday post there!***

I’ve been seeing boyfriend jeans everywhere–but when I’m shopping I can’t find any I like. Last week I came across these boyfriend jeans online and took a risk–figuring I could return them if they didn’t work. And I LOVE them. I’ve worn them at least every other day since I got them. So comfy, and easy and fun!

How about some hellos?

Hello favorite jeans! A good pair of jeans is like a security blanket, don’t you think?

Hello late start. Every Monday the boys’ school starts at 9:25am instead of 8:25am. Late start Mondays are the best invention EVER.

Hello blonder hair. I took some pics to show you later this week. {My hair is still darker in these pics!}

Hello knocking out my to do list. Instead of avoiding certain tasks I’m trying to jump in and get things done. Feels good.

  1. Hi Lisa honey, today I’m saying hello (even though it’s my Tuesday!):
    – Trying to garden with a very sore hip because I’m panicing about it going to wrack and ruin when I can’t do anything in it for a month or more after 24 Feb when I get my left hip joint replaced
    – Making the most of a cloudy morning by being in the garden with said sore hip, LOL
    – Getting ready to have a house guest to ”help” when I get home from hospital as have lots of outdoor animal tasks each day and John works in the mornings
    – Enjoying every minute of every cloud that passes over our hot summer sun
    – Eating fresh plums out of our garden.. mmm nothing like a sun-ripened and still warm plum!
    Big smiles..

  2. Hello Lisa, you are seriously too cute, and inspiring in sweet ways.

    praying God magnifies His peace and provision on you all when David has tests next week.

    Downton Abbey, has me hooked too. I like that it’s on Sunday night. Vegging with Bates and Anna and Mary after a full week is a treat.

    1. I have a really hard time handling the bates/Anna plot line. I want them to be happy! Hope your Monday is filled with grace Denise! xx

  3. I also love Downton Abby (and Sherlock).
    Also love a great pair of boyfriend jeans. So comfy!
    Saying hello to bright pink tulips with yellow tips that brighten up my kitchen.
    Hello to the bright sunshine.
    Hello to clean laundry and organized closets that make like easier.

    Thank you Lisa for your joyous and contagious optimism! : )

  4. Saying hello to the start of spring cleaning! Maybe closets first? Cute boyfriend jeans. Eddie Bauer has been making boyfriend jeans for years and seriously they are amazing.

  5. Your jeans are so cute and flattering. Love!
