That Elusive Number

Remember how I said my husband and I are racing to see who can get to 148 pounds first? Well, neither of us are there yet. It’s crazy how hard it is to get to a certain number. We have both been just a few pounds off for the last two and a half months. He even stepped on the scale the other day and while it was calculating it hit 148, but then evened out at 146. I weighed myself at night once at 149.2, but then when I woke up, I had gone up! What the heck?! It’s almost comical how ridiculous this contest has gotten.

Happy weekend!

All Things Felicity

I’ve been rewatching the Felicity series (for the 4th time) and I am feeling so nostalgic. Because I was in college at the same time, it’s almost like watching videos of myself (although I don’t have naturally curly hair and didn’t go to college in New York, but it’s practically the same). The audio tapes she makes for Sally, her turtlenecks, the angst about figuring out who you are/who you want to be and the feeling in life that everything is moving so slowly. It makes me want to go back in time and slap my 19-year-old self and tell her to enjoy it all because it really does go by so quickly.

Sleep When I’m Dead

We just had Spring Break last week and it flew by. We were fighting a cold the whole week, so that didn’t make it very fun either. I have a real problem “slowing down” though. I know I should have rested, but there is just way too many things to be done (aka deep clean the freezer) to lay in bed all day. Like the saying goes, I’ll sleep when I’m dead. ;)

My Six-Year-Old Dressed Me: Outfit 5

THIS outfit is exactly what I expected to be wearing all week. This one, in my thoughts, is totally one a six-year-old would put together. (I DID pull the shirt gather the shirt in the back with a hairband and tucked it under though because otherwise I was Frumptown USA.) When my husband saw it, his reaction was “Wow! That’s a lot of pattern!” But it grew on me. I felt very French and artsy in it.

What I took away from this week:

1. Kids of all genders LOVE clothing and accessories that sparkle.

2. My son has a pretty good eye for color.

3. Anything (even crazy patterns) can work if you are confident and don’t care what people think of you. Just “make it work”!

Have a fantastic weekend!

When my son first made this outfit, he paired the lace shirt with a denim skirt that (unfortunately) doesn’t fit me right now. After I told him this, he expertly picked this beautiful dress for me to wear instead. I’m pretty sure my reaction was “Wow! No way, buddy. People are not going to believe that you made this outfit.” But he did. He must have been watching me because this is totally an outfit that I would create. He nailed my style to a T. I’m only a little concerned because he pulled out these shoes and said, “Peach shoes for a peach dress”, even though they don’t match. At least he used the word “peach”? ;)

I thought glitter and sequins is what little girls would be obsessed with, but apparently little boys can’t escape the shine and sparkle. Or that is just what they think their mommy should wear all the time. This is the third outfit my eldest son created for me and I’m loving it. I love how he picked sporty shoes to go with the dressy blouse and skirt.

This is the second outfit my oldest son made up for me. When he first picked out the red shoes, I gulped because I never would have thought to put red and coral together. But I think he totally pulled it together with the necklace. I love how he sees things so differently from me. I will definitely wear this outfit in the future. :)
