Dress: Old Navy, Sweater: Old Navy, Shoes: Soda, Flower: Fossil Outlet, Watch: Fossil Outlet, Necklace: Lisa Leonard Designs´╗┐

On Sunday I showered.  AND did my hair. AND then put on a dress for Church. It was quite a a feat for this packing Momma.  The last ten days have been sweats and baseball cap kinda days, and I imagine the next few weeks will be the same. So let’s soak in this pretty and simple summer dress together shall we, Ahhhhhh.  Because it’s all grease and grime from here on out. 

Tomorrow is day one of moving day.
Bitter sweet.

Shirt: Old Navy, Sweater: Old Navy, Pants: Banana Republic, Shoes: Bakers, Watch: Fossil, Ring: LMM
So a couple of things:
1. The idea was to wear all one color so as to highlight the fact that I finally painted my nails a color. But now I’m starting to think I just kinda look like a dolphin…a dolphin with yellow finger nails. 
2. Did you notice my new watch. I’m pretty smitten about it. It’s my late Momma’s Day gift from the hubs. I have been eyeing this watch by Michael Kors for over a year, but its $495 and that’s just cuh-razy! So I found mine at the Fossil outlet store for $85.
3. I love ya guys, I really do. Just wanted to put that out there.
4. Did you know that right now, the Gap and Banana Republic are having an additional 40% off their clearance items, right now.  Yep, its true. That’s how I got me these skinny cargo pants.  And we like BR because their sizes run large, so I always end up buying a size smaller than I really am–oh yeah, and they have skinny mirrors in the dressing rooms.

5. Have you ever wondered what happens when you accidentally use self-rising flour instead of normal flour when making chewy chocolate chip cookies? You get cookie biscuits–that turn into cookie rocks in 30 minutes.
6.   I added a whole bunch of goodies to the shop today. If ya feel like shopping, be sure to use the code: SUMMER for 10% OFF.
7. I have been a painting fool the last few days. Can’t wait to unveil all the refinished furniture.  Happy colors!
8. Final thought:

Shirt: TJ Maxx, Skirt: La Vie Petite, Shoes: Forever 21
I once heard a rumor that Mariah Carey had her two bottom ribs removed so that she could fit into clothes better…or was it Janet Jackson? On either account, I fit into that category of girls with an extra large rib cage.  Put it this way, in middle school my ribs protruded further than my tatas–and it was cause for some major juvenile teasing. Which may be why I am totally stoked that high waisted skirts are back in. They give me some semblance of a waist and they totally hide the post baby pooch that every old man at church mistakes for a preggo bump, not cool.
Visit La Vie Petite if you want your very own handmade, mustard yellow, pooch-hiding, high waisted, glorious skirt.

It’ll be good times.

Top: Forever 21, Sweater: Target, Belt: Old Navy, Watch: Target,
Jeans: Paige Denim @ Nordstroms, Shoes: Aerosoles

My blouse and shoes were purchased a looonnnggg time ago. In fact, a lot of items I still wear regularly were purchased months, if not years ago–as in I have had them since high school or early college. 

Which got me thinking about something funny…
 Is it just me, or can you remember exactly where and when every single item of your clothing was purchased?  And, is it weird that I remember exactly the outfit I was wearing on all the special moments of my life? 

Like the goofy light wash denim Miss Sixty bell bottoms, Abercrombie shirt, Gap jean jacket and white platform Sketcher sneakers that I wore on my first date with the hubs.

What were you wearing when?…

What I Wore on Our 45 Minute Date

We don’t get out much,
unless there’s a squirmy toddler in tow.
When we dated, we went to see a movie every week–every week people.
Now we’re lucky if we see a movie every season.
And I suppose I have that first time momma anxiety
where my mind renders me physically incapable of calling a teenage babysitter to watch my pride and joy.
I need to get over it, I know. 
But so far,  my Mom and a few other adult friends
are the only babysitters Baby W has ever known.
So last night, when my Momma was visiting
she suggested we go out to dinner–alone.
And we didn’t turn down her offer.
Two minutes after she made the suggestion,
we were dressed and ready to go.
And this is what I wore
for chips
salsa
and crunchy chicken tacos.
Yes, I had to loosen the belt after our third basket of chips.

Black Cotton Sun Dress: Old Navy. Shoes: Forever 21.
Belt: Macy’s Clearance Bin. Cardigan: Old Navy.
Because the hubby was determined to be a gentleman on our mini date, he insisted on driving–bum leg and all. But it meant I had to sit in the back seat while he propped his leg on the passenger seat.

Good times.
As always, I will be linking up my outfit to these favorite blogs:
