So..Blogging this week..FAIL! I am so sorry...It was just one of those weeks. I was struck with a never-want-it-again sinus headache for the first part of the week. My son was also sick. And somehow my daughter still managed to survive us both.
So I looked the part of Functioning Death for the majority of this week and thought I would spare you all. You can thank me by forgiving my absence from Blog World ;)
But today..today was MUCH better. We were actually on track to make it to church on time (you can pick your jaws up off the ground ;), we were loading the kiddos up, my hubster and I mentally high-fiving ourselves for accomplishing this Feat of Impossibility wheeeeennnnnnnn.....our neighbor stopped to have a chat. And chat. Annnnnnd chat. I am not sure if he didn't realize we were trying to get to church, or maybe he thought we just liked to get all dolled up for Denny's..either way...
But I'm not complaining, because this neighbor has also been working in triple digit heat to repair our shared fence (lest you think my Hubster is a slacker..this very generous neighbor decided to do it while my Hubster was at work..I'm not sure why. But, I am ever-grateful!)
And if returning a bit of generosity in some friendly neighbor chatter means we are late to church, then, by all means, we are late to church.
But...we would've been there on time....just so you know ;)
Now, enough of MY chatter! Here's what I wore Sunday!
This skirt. This skirt I love. This top. This top I love. The two together? Love. (Anyone else feeling like I am writing a fashion version of See Jane Run??)
But...why do I love it so much? Because, it is light and airy and just flows. It seriously make me happy!
|Anyone else walk with one arm by their ear? Just me? ;)|
|But seriously...check that out! (The skirt, mind you ha!)|
And for those just interested in the accessories:
I went Plum and Gold with my make-up for this and then pretty simple with the jewelry. When my top has an interesting neckline I usually don't like to wear a necklace. I feel it takes away from the top and is just "too much"..but that's just me.
|The earrings, I went with aqua danglers|
But really, for me, this outfit is the skirt. It just so comfortable, so easy and...well...it does this:
For Curious Minds Who May Want to Know:
Shirt: Marshalls (I think it was 12 bucks, score!)
Skirt: BB Dakota (Hautelook deal, score!)
Bracelets: Gift from my Mom
Shoes: Not...really..featured...hmmmm...well, if anyone wants to imagine, they were a low-wedge gold and strappy :)
Also, this next weekend I am flying. By myself. Translation? Travelling without kiddos!! Ummm I don't even know if I remember how to do that! I can bring a book AND read it! I can wear cute clothes and KEEP them cute! Heck, I could take a nap on the plane..oooooh the possibilities!
But, this also means, my first time away from the kiddos over night, let alone for 4 days! Truth be told, I'm a little nervous. I already am missing them. I know they are in good hands with the Hubster..but Mama won't be there...
I am praying it all goes well. I am travelling across country to visit a dear friend of mine who had a baby a few weeks ago...and for this short trip, it just makes more sense (with time and money) for just myself to go.
But...if anyone can spare a prayer or two for me, I'd sure appreciate it ;)
Until next time, Lots of Love!
