Fashion, Food, Desserts, being a 30-something mom is exciting!

One Year

Wow, one year ago today I started my blog! Time has flown by!!

I have a giveaway planned to mark this anniversary, but it’s going to have to wait until the end of next week. My kids are going on spring break and we are going on a mini-break! So I will be taking a vacation from blogging as well (going to try to extend that to Instagram, but we shall see).

Anyway, today was my youngest child’s field trip, we went to the San Diego Wild Animal Park. It was fun, but exhausting. Sorry for the wonky photographs, we left at 6am this morning, so I had zero natural light!

Cardigan: Ross (they have it in Ivory right now too!! I am trying to restrain myself, it’s been an expensive week already!)
Blouse: Old Navy (I’d love to replace this, but have yet to find another like it I love)
Skirt: Kate Spade (love this!!!!)
Shoes: Strassed Jimmy Choo flats
Handbag: Hermes Birkin

Yes, I know, I dragged my Birkin to the zoo. My theory is, I can either lock up the fun stuff and only “look” at it, or I can use it, trash it, enjoy it, etc. I choose to enjoy my things. Plus it cannot be put on my shoulder, which is a good thing. Not to mention, I don’t think it’s terribly well known, I have only seen one out “in the wild”, and it was in Beverly Hills. Soooo. Expect to see the bag a lot, I do love it and am thrilled and disgusted with myself for having it all at the same time.

Anyway. I won’t bore you with my drivel. Some fun photos from today:

Me in the dirt with my bag & shoes (I didn’t lose a single crystal!)

A butterfly landed on me….sooo random. The butterfly habitat is wicked cool, except it’s SO hot and humid in there, ugh!

As we were leaving they were walking a cheetah (I think?) for the 5pm cheetah race (we did not stay). What a gorgeous animal!! The kids were so excited! It was really interesting to see it fairly tame (with 100 screaming 6 and 7 year olds!) and walking on a leash quite nicely. It seemed to want to play a bit to be honest! (I’d have gladly cuddled up!)

Anyway, thank you to all my readers! It’s fun to have a little corner of the Internet to ramble on about useless nonsense.

Oh! Les Miserables comes out tomorrow on DVD! Are you excited? I stopped on the way home and grabbed the extended CD (I have an advance copy of the DVD already, the movie is sublime.), I’m super excited! Rent it, but it, it’s amazing!!!

Until next time,

Jules
