Chalkboard Serveware with Darby Smart

Another Darby Smart tutorial coming at ya!  I won one of their Facebook giveaways, and they sent me this wonderful box. I feel sometimes like they just read my mind, because this is something I've wanted to do for a while now. I feel like I say that about everything they send me, though. LOVE them!

What I Wore Wednesday: Toms Booties and Chambray 4.23

I have been madly pinning chambray and Toms booties lately. Because they're stylish and I own both. I just got my third chambray shirt. I sold the first one because it became too big (I bought it right after Wes was born, and it served its purpose in the fourth trimester). The second was a Goodwill find and the third was free from Old Navy via Gap rewards. The Toms booties were a treat from my husband telling me to buy whatever Toms I wanted from Zulily on my birthday.

P.S. If you like Toms, or just the imperfect, make sure you enter my giveaway for an imperfectly beautiful Toms zipper pouch.

(Also, yep, this is me in a corner of my classroom. I'm a middle school teacher.)

Necklace - Lia Sophia
Chambray - Goodwill
Top - Gap
Coral Polka Dot Skinnies - Gap
Booties - Toms

Honestly, when I finally got the booties in the mail (part of Zulily is the long shipping), I was having a little regret that I didn't get something more "practical," but I've been having tons of fun figuring out how to style them. Here are two other ways I've styled them:

Our Easter Weekend

The weather this weekend could not have been better. Highs in the 70s and a little breeze. Perfect in my book. It definitely made me want to make a days until summer vacation count down.

We kicked Friday night off with some time in the park. Last summer, Wesley was really too small for swings, but he seemed to love his first experience this spring. Much more of that to come.  Then over to our usual Friday night dinner with friends. We have a couple that we get together with most Fridays. The kids play. We eat, drink, and enjoy.

Beauty in the Imperfections {Giveaway}

One thing I really adore in the work I do with Toms Flags is the imperfections. It's amazing to look at the different ones that people give me. They remind me of myself, my flaws, life's flaws, differences.

 They vary in size - from the small, small ones that come with Tiny Toms to the large ones that come with some big men's Toms. 

Some of the come bearing scars from being creased while printing.

Happy Easter!

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
