Fashion Friday:I'm Back

Well I sure have been neglecting this little blog of mine, but the truth is I just needed a break. Things have been going really well around here, but I've been strangely exhausted! Like, I don't get to sit down for 5 minutes straight each day until bedtime and by then I feel like I might faint.

So, what little spare time I have had has been spent relaxing if I can.  BUT, like I said things are really good.  Two big things:  Natalie has slept through the night every night for a week straight!!!  She turned seven months old on Monday and poor girl still hasn't had her monthly photo shoot.  I'll be getting on that tomorrow morning when Brian is here to help out. 

The second big thing is that Phillip started his new mother's day out and he absolutely LOVES it!  I don't know if I prepped him well or I just happen to have the most outgoing kid on earth but I dropped him off on Tuesday and he seriously did not blink an eye.  Just, see ya mom!  We started reading the book, Llama Llama I Miss My Mama, which is all about starting school and I think it really helped.  He was even reciting parts of the book as we went to his first day.  We also visited the school twice so he could see it and so he was familiar it.  He led me into his classroom on that first day and he was just so ready.  I have to tell y'all I was so nervous the night before and it's really been weighing on my heart whether or not it was the right time for him but I can undoubtedly say now, that it was!

We've also been doing some huge things around the house that I can't wait to share.  First, Phillip's big boy room is pretty much complete.   This weekend,I'll be hanging the last thing on the wall and hopefully snapping some pictures to share next week.  We also just finished building a big outside deck and pergola in our yard (or at least what passes for a yard in our urban neighborhood, haha!).  We could not be more thrilled with how it turned out, and I'd love y'alls input on "decorating" the space.

And now, onto the OOTD's!

Happy Weekend and Happy National Margarita Day!!!


  1. Hope you enjoyed your "blog break" but I am glad your back! Have a great weekend!!!

  2. Everything was good about this jacket, lovely, good fit, stylish, very comfortable. It seems to keep me very pretty so I enjoy it in It's not too tight or anything, It's lengthy, which is also what I wanted and I wear this leather jackets with jeans to work. It looks great with my handbag too.


Your comments make my day!
