Date Night

Last night my husband and I stepped out for about an hour, in what we call “date night” (a trip to Target). Since “winter” decided to show up, it did require another outfit change, making the grand total 3 changes yesterday!

Last night:

  1. Cardigan: Banana Republic
  2. Blouse: Banana Republic Outlet
  3. Pants: Banana Republic
  4. Shoes: Christian Louboutin
  5. Handbag: Kate Spade

Tonight I took my youngest to the mother-son dance at school. He picked my outfit:

  1. Dress: Theia
  2. Necklace: Kate Spade
  3. Shoes: Christian Louboutin
  4. Handbag: Kate Spade

Although I realized after we got home, I should have taken Rajah! However I did wear my fur coat, so perhaps it’s best he stayed home. I made this for my son to wear as well (which he ended up giving away by the end of the night….that kid, so generous! Granted I did promise to make him another in colours of his choosing….)

Hope your weekend is going well. It’s supposed to rain tomorrow here….I am scheduled to drive for ROTC tomorrow, but it may be cancelled due to weather. I’m torn, on one hand it would be lovely to see friends, the new Kate Spade spring collection in person, and hit up Its a Wrap. But the idea of staying home is also oh-so-lovely. Rainy day at home?! Yes please!

Until next time,


Phoning It In

Today that was me, totally, utterly “phoning it in”, clothing wise! I started the day in pants, or should I say “slacks”, and then swapped them out for a skirt when I ran out of the house for errands this afternoon. Of course I was so busy baking I didn’t get photos in my first outfit. I did for the second one…and honestly? I was not feeling it. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t feeling extraordinary today? Not sure, but I sure was feeling macaron-making! 

First my outfit:

  1. Cardigan: Kate Spade
  2. Blouse: Elle (Kohls)
  3. Skirt: Kate Spade
  4. Belt: Kate Spade
  5. Shoes: Christian Louboutin

Today was a major baking day. See, it started yesterday when I went to the dentist. And walked out with a handful of macaron orders. I had to bake already today, so what was 8 dozen more macarons?! I also did a new flavour, Key Lime Pie (key lime buttercream with biscoff cookie crumbles!)

It was soooo good. And tomorrow? It will be even better!!!! I also made a cake, my white chocolate cake with fresh strawberries, covered in my strawberry buttercream (that is more buttery than sweet. It’s divine), for a colleague of my husband’s wife. He was SO excited about this cake, it just reminded me WHY I love to bake, because of how happy it makes others! I do hope his wife loves it, and t lives up the the “hype”!! (I had sent cupcakes a few weeks ago of the same cake/icing combo to my husbands office. I think it’s even better in a cake though. It smelled sooooooo amazing)

Yes, I had TV on the iPad….Reign on the CW. I just love seeing the costumes!!!!

And finally I finished this little project, for my youngest who requested it for a special event coming up. I love that he wants something sparkly to go with my shoes for our outing!!

My youngest kills it! Well and my middle son, he always wears a sparkly bow tie to events! It’s kind of their “thing”. The girls dig it too. 

And now, off to bed. I excited for next week, my schedule slows down a bit and I get a “do-nothing” day!! Of course all my insanity IS self inflicted, but it sure is fun to run like a madwoman!!

Until next time,
