30 for 30: Day 30

Whew.  So I survived last week.  And the weekend.  And Monday. I deserve a cookie.

I officially finished the 30 for 30 on Saturday.   I deserve another cookie. The timeline was a little wonky (wonky?), but what matters is that it's OVER.  Would I do it again?  Yes.  In the winter?  Hecks no.  Finding time/daylight to document all of the outfits was the real challenge for me.  And next time...more shoe choices.  I nearly lost my mind.

After a very fun Friday evening out - friends, Vietnamese dinner (yummy Pho), shopping, live music, caramel apple cider, more friends, more shopping (did you know department stores are open til MIDNIGHT? - holla!), I slept in as long as possible (like, 8am?) on Saturday. 

Steve made plans to see TRON at 10:00am and I went sort of expecting to sleep through it (it's what I do), but it was actually REALLY good. (Stayed awake through Steve-movie - cookie!)  I did in fact sleep through the original TRON so I was a little lost as to the back-stories of the characters, but it didn't matter too much.




As you can see, my finale outfit was nothing too spectacular.  It's really all about the scarf.  I made it and this is my first time wearing it.  It turned out pretty darn good for my first attempt at a chain scarf.  It took me forever, but I actually finished a knitting project.  Make that 4 cookies.

Congrats on finishing! I agree, doing the 30 during the winter is a bit more difficult. I love this last look, especially your scarf! I can't believe you made it...what a talent :)

Congratulations on finishing. It is a tough challenge in the winter. I love all the red and pink in this outfit. That scarf is so cool.

Yay! Congrats on making it through.

And also..."I did in fact sleep through the original TRON so I was a little lost as to the back-stories of the characters, but it didn't matter too much." ME TOO. But I'm thinking the new one is mostly to look at so I should be OK. ;)

That scarf is so amazing! When I first saw it I was thinking "that's so adorable where did she get that," and then I scrolled down and saw that you MADE it! You're so talented!

Congrats on completing the challenge. I'm hoping that another one comes up soon so that I can participate. I was a coward this year and didn't want to give up shopping on Black Friday. Yup, I'm THAT person. :)

Meri said...

Nice job on the last one!
I love those boots!

Linda said...

You made that scarf? Wow...it is fantastic!
Good job finishing the challenge. While I liked a winter challenge because it allowed for lots and lots of layering, you are SO right about the lack of daylight. It was too hard to get good pictures! Your pictures look great.
