just call me Lizzy...

:: L I Z Z Y ::

You are Elizabeth Bennet of Pride & Prejudice!
  You are intelligent, witty, and tremendously attractive. You have a good head on your shoulders, and oftentimes find yourself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of silliness. You take great pleasure in many things. You are proficient in nearly all of them, though you will never own it. Lest you seem too perfect, you have a tendency toward prejudgment that serves you very ill indeed.

I am Elizabeth Bennet!

So when I'm not being Lizzy, I'm busy being an exceptional wife to my husband.  I gave up my "day out" on Friday so that my dh could go clothes shopping for himself.  It was a necessary venture for him; he needed some new clothing.  In the past we would have booked a babysitter and gone together, but that is getting increasingly difficult with 4 children and especially with the youngest being toddler twins.  In the end my dh decided he would like to give shopping a whirl by himself.  I was excited for him.  However, after two hours he phoned me completely depressed and overwhelmed.  Seems he just needed a second opinion of the female/wifely nature.  He tried to go it alone for another hour and then gave up.  Poor guy. 

There is a happy ending, we ran out together for a couple of hours on Sunday and brought home some new tops & pants. Today I went out by myself and gathered some additional items for him to choose from. I think he is happy and looks very handsome in his new duds. 

All this to say, I didn't do any crafty projects this weekend.  I guess in times of crisis, like my dh looking into his closet and saying "I have no nice clothing...", is a good time to put things on hold. 


  1. I have no idea who this is, but apparently I am Anne Elliot of Persuasion! This is supposedly me: Let's face it, you're easily persuaded, especially when faced with choices that are or aren't 'the Elliot way.' But this doesn't mean that you don't have conviction. Actually, your sense of duty is overwhelming. And though you won't stick your neck out too often, you have learned to speak up when it counts. To boot, you know how to handle sticky situations. You love deeply and constantly.
    Some of it is true.

  2. That was very nice of you! I have often given up my "girl's night out" so J could go bowling or out with the guys. He never goes clothes shopping-ever! I think his wardrobe consists of all gifts from Christmas or birthdays LOL! He is in desparate need of some "intimates" that I call manly panties LOL! TMI, I know, but you can always use a good laugh!
    Gotta run, I have a mtg in 15 min.


I love reading your comments
