HIgh Five For Friday 1.30

What a great week!!  We found out last Friday afternoon that the house we put an offer in on is ours!  We did inspections this week and hope to have a closing date nailed down in the next few days.  Exciting stuff! With all the excitement, I've done a little house planning this week mixed in with other events in in our lives.


Henry turns 5 tomorrow!  How can that be?  I'll be back next week with a little summary of his party which is tomorrow.  I've tried to keep everything super simple, but Henry has helped me with a few little touches. He's so excited to help.

What I Wore Wednesday 1.28

Things around her have been a little busy with the house stuff and illness, so I really didn't get time to take outfit shots last week. That's not an apology but more just a statement of fact if you're wondering why I have so few to share!  Back on track this week!  I think I mentioned before that I packed up part of my closet in the house staging process. Well, it's still hanging out in the garage somewhere, but I realize I still have enough to wear. You may just see a few tops more frequently.  It's good for me and challenges my creativity!  Hope you're having a wonderful week!

See Saturday's look here.

Lessons in Fashion: Maternity Wardrobe Basics and Link Up

Lessons in Fashion:
a sporadic series where I share little tips with you that help make my wardrobe stretch. 

Today's Lesson: 

Maternity Wardrobe Basics
I had a friend who was changing jobs recently (from scrubs to needing business casual) comment that she just wished she had a wardrobe in a bag that she could buy. It got me thinking about starting over with a wardrobe and the conundrum many women face when they are first pregnant and have to seek out maternity clothes.  It's basically like starting your closet from zero again. Sure, you can make a lot of things stretch, but the way your body changes, that won't get you through.  If you've been around here long, you know I don't like to spend a ton of money on clothes. I've had women ask me where to buy maternity clothes, and I usually end up replying, "Old Navy, Gap (sale rack), or Target."  So, today I wanted to share with you the basics I would buy if I had to start my maternity wardrobe all over again.

Lazy Saturday Style and Glasses from Firmoo

I admit that I enjoy dressing up for work, but I love weekend coziness just as much.  Today I wanted to share how you'll typically find me on a Saturday along with my new, fabulous glasses from Firmoo.

You've seen this Hello Apparel sweatshirt a few times, and you're probably like, enough already, but it's so cozy and I can wear it even with the baby belly.  I stuck a long black tank underneath, and threw on my cozy Gap Maternity legging jeans.

High Five for Friday 1.23

What a week!  We had an extended weekend because of MLK day, and a little funky schedule because of house stuff and sickness. Lots to be thankful for this week!



Our town had an indoor winter festival last weekend. Inflatables, free stuff, the boys were in heaven. It has been unseasonably warm this week, but it's still nice to have some indoor stuff since it's kind of messy outside with the snow melting.
