A week ago, I got fed up of wearing maternity clothes…well, I got fed up with looking at them in my closet, so I packed them all up and exchanged them for my boxes of regular clothes. Unfortunately I still have another fifteen or twenty pounds to lose to be back to “normal”. I’ve been working super hard doing the 21 Day Fix (more on that later), so that I can fit into my clothes when I go back to work in a week. I am not quite sure that this is going to happen though and I’m pretty sure naked doesn’t fall under the “professional dress code guidelines”. Blerg.

There is always that time period after giving birth when your hormones are out of whack and getting back to normal. The worst thing that happens during this time is that your hair starts falling out in droves. You should see how much hair is all over the floor of my home. It’s absolutely ridiculous. I’m pretty sure in the next couple of weeks I’m going to be bald. Anyone wanna go wig shopping with me? 😉

With all our trips to the pool and beach lately, it got me thinking…asking someone to put sunscreen on you is really a trust exercise. You can’t see what they are doing back there. For all you know, they could just be rubbing their hands on your back with no sunscreen. Or rubbing it in randomly, so you look all blotchy like a cow person. So I ask you…do you trust the person applying your sunscreen? 😉

Get Away From Me!

We have a sweet little Miniature Schnauzer named Ollie (It used to be Oliver, but we switched it to Olive when we found out “he” was actually a girl…but that’s a story for another day…). Now, she is a very good dog, but I am seriously thinking of getting a restraining order from her. She follows me around the house like she can’t get enough of me. She has a bottomless pit for attention, which we give her, but apparently it’s not enough. So if you’re near my house, please feel free to stop by and spend some time with my dog ’cause she’s driving me NUTS!

What Year Is It?!

So I was looking through Seventeen Magazine the other day (Don’t judge me…) and I noticed these trends:

Butterfly clips in cornrows

Scrunchies

Cropped tops

Overalls

What year is it again?! 1997?! Because I’m pretty sure I could have kept all my AWKWARD clothes from high school and gifted them to one very excited teenage girl. Yikes. How am I old enough to have seen trends come around again? And WHY are they trendy again?! Scrunchies?! Really!?

Miss Me?

Wowza! It’s been a while, hasn’t it?! If you follow me on Instagram, you have seen that I’ve just been hanging out with my boys, doing tons of swimming, beach trips and regular laziness. So it’s no surprise that I can’t get myself to sit in front of the computer and write a post, despite the fact that I’ve had pictures of cute outfits just stacking up on my camera. Because summer or not, nothing is gonna hold me back from wearing fun clothes. 😉
