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

Monday Monday

And now, 12 days into the year, it FINALLY feels like a proper Monday! Kids went back to school, and my husband started a new job, and all is right with the world!!

Well, kinda. I pulled something in my back yesterday and so have been laid up a bit. But had to be up and going this morning, and it was a doozy day! I wore this:




Cardigan: Kate Spade (sample piece)
Blouse: Banana Republic (old!!)
Skirt: Topshop, but from It’s a Wrap (the skirt my husband bought me Saturday. I’m in love. It also has pockets!)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

I had to go pick up my car this afternoon and it just worked out my best gal pal was in the same general area, and so, crazy dinner plans happened. She brought her new puppy, and we had 4 of our 5 assorted children, and ate yummy food. I also changed shoes just for her:


And the highlight of my day? Receiving this book AND a highlighter to review from one of my favorite authors, Kathi Lipp (she’s brilliant, she’s funny, she’s also a stepmom, and I love that about her!). She’s just an amazing writer, you feel like she’s sitting in the room with you as you read. I had applied for her “review” program on this one on a whim, never expecting it to show up on my doorstep. It was like the best package in my mailbox today!!! I love books, like seriously, LOVE BOOKS, so getting one for free is even better. Getting one for free to review, well, that’s a challenge, and I have resolved to challenge myself in 2015, so here we go!


My husband and I are quite excited to jump in and do this experience together. It does require some planning, ack, so much paperwork to catch up on tomorrow!! Being in bed unable to really move for a day is SUPER NOT FUN!!

I managed to keep up with “no shop January” yesterday (as when you can’t move you can’t shop.), and today, even though I was in a mall for dinner, I DID NOT BUY ANYTHING. Except fuel for the cars. But you kind of need that to drive. Especially when the light is on. OOPS!!

Looking forward to this new week, and hoping my back decides to cooperate with the plans I have, and not make its own. I guess I needed a reminder that I’m not 22 anymore, no matter what the song says. *grins*

Until next time,
