4-H Project Take 2

This jacket was a 4-H sewing project from high school that I never finished. My mother was nice enough to finish the jacket and the matching sheath dress, pictured here:

Today is my last full day before the Thanksgiving holiday. I was supposed to be off tomorrow, but immigration scheduled an appointment, so I'll be coming into work just to take care of that appt, then I'll be heading home early to bake pumpkin pies.

I picked up today's hair barrette last week after I straightened my hair then got caught in the rain. It was a set of three barrettes (black, brown and olive) from Walgreen's. I like how the barrette keeps my hair back, but looks a little more adult and reserved than a ponytail in an elastic, yet it's just as easy to do. Run a brush through wet hair, part hair, insert barrette. I've been wearing this barrette a lot in the past week, rather than taking the time to dry my hair and style it.
