An Off Week

This week hasn't gone like I had planned.  On Sundays, I make a list of things I plan on getting done that upcoming week and throughout the week I get my list all completed.  Unfortunately, I have come down with a cold and my list has just been pushed to the back burner. So, I'm a behind on pretty much everything, but it's okay because I have slowed down and just spent time with my kids.

   It has been kinda tough being sick and not having Andy around. It is a test week for him, so he hasn't been around to help me, but luckily my kids are okay with lots of snuggling on the couch and watching movies with me. I feel like kids get sick pretty often and when my kids get sick, I always feel bad for them, but when I get sick, it really hits me how crappy they really feel. I'm glad February is almost over.. just a few more weeks of cold weather hopefully.

The Struggle is Real...

Have you seen those shirts that say "the struggle is real"?  I need one of those. Everyday I walk into my closet to get dressed and all I want to put on is my yoga pants .  It really is a struggle to actually put effort into my clothing choices somedays.  It is easy for me to get my kids out of their pajamas each day and dressed cute but when it comes to putting the same amount of work into me.. well, it becomes work.  Hope someone else understands what I'm talking about!

Sunday Style

I've been combing through my closet trying to find things I haven't worn in a while.  I feel like I have a few go-to outfits and those go on repeat.  I love the lace on this dress and when I pulled it out of the back of my closet, it was hard to remember why I haven't worn it in so long. Although it is tough getting us all out the door to Church in the morning.. It is really nice to have the whole rest of the day to relax and spend time together.  I woke up with a slight cold so the idea that we had nothing to do but relax was needed.

Friday Favorites.. T-Shirt Edition

I would say the shopping in my current town is not great.  We have a few stores but nothing to come visit town over. If I get the chance to shop, it is mostly done online.  With summer quickly approaching and the nice weather we have been having, I have started looking around for some comfy, trendy but mom friendly clothing.  Thought I would share a few of my finds.. click on the picture and it will take you to the website!

Simple.. yet perfect.

Andy's schedule keeps him so busy right now.  Studying is a huge part of his life and there is rarely a full day off.  On Saturday he took most of it off and spent it with us.  We didn't have any big plans but it was perfect. A date to the park with our kids, a nice home cooked Valentines Dinner and all of us snuggling up on the couch to watch a movie.  It was simply perfect.  
The night before I did put out some little Valentine's gifts for my family to wake up to. Carter is obsessed with anything Ninja Turtles and Carly just likes to have whatever Carter has.  I went to our Dollar Store and got a few little gifts for them. (Except the Ninja Turtle and Minnie Mouse bubbles.. those are from Wal-Mart)  
Their faces the next morning were priceless.  Andy's gift idea was from this blog right here .  It was super simple to put together, just don't laugh at the Lightening Mcqueen wrapping paper, it was the only paper I had! It really turned out to be a good weekend, one I know I'll remember.

Warmer Weather

 60 degrees outside calls for coral pants.  Today was Heavenly. The sun was shining, there were blue skies and it was warm!!! It was warm enough that Carter informed me multiple times, He no longer needed to wear a sweatshirt.  My kids were so happy playing outside on our little trampoline and I was happy to send them outside to play for a change.

Navy + Chambray, Momma and Baby Sunday Style

It seems like no matter how early I get up, we still end up rushing out the door to get to Church on time.  Never enough time in the morning when you have to get kids and yourself dressed, feed and out the door early.  On the bright side.. after 9 am church, you get the rest of the day to relax. I loooove Sunday afternoons with  my lil' family.

Groundhog Day

It's Monday. I got up this morning and read that the groundhog saw his shadow, so unfortunately there will be 6 more weeks of winter. Bummer. ;)   It is rainy outside and so quiet in my house.  It is pretty nice knowing that I have nowhere to be today and not much to do but it is one o'clock in the afternoon and my kids and I are already getting pretty bored.  So.. sorry in advance to my family that will be getting facetime calls from us all afternoon!

A little red for Valentines..

It's February! We are one step closer to spring and Valentine's Day! I pulled out my favorite red pencil skirt in honor of the upcoming Holiday.  I know today is the Superbowl.. but I'm not huge into sports(I only watch for the commercials).  We only live 2 hours from Seattle, so we are living in Seahawks territory which is pretty fun.  Everyone at the grocery store is fully decked out in Seahawks apparel and game day flags are being flown everywhere. Anyways.. Happy first of February!

Denim on Denim on Navy

I love looking on Pinterest for outfit inspiration.. actually inspiration for just about anything.  One of my problems with it is that most girls are wearing heals with their outfit.  Um... no.  I can't keep up with my kids on a day to day basis wearing heels.  Plus I feel kinda weird at the grocery store?? Either way.. This is a pretty normal outfit for me.. simple yet I feel put together. 

Outfit Details:
Navy and White Striped Sweater: Gap  /// Jean Jacket: Style for Less (similar) /// Jeans: Gap (similar) /// Necklace: Local Boutique (similar)  /// Shoes: Vans

Sometimes finding the clothes online is crazy difficult! I couldn't find the jeans but if you are looking in store the style is skinny roll up.  Anyways.. Happy Friday! Andy just had a test block and finished today.. So I am looking forward to spending the whole weekend with him!! Woot woot!!

Riding in Style

This is Carly's favorite toy. She got it for Christmas and she is always sitting on it.  My FAVORITE thing in the world is hearing her laugh when Carter pushes her around on it. Love this little girl and her sweet personality. I love watching her grow up but I'm so heartbroken that she is already 10 months old! She is growing so quickly.

Snow in Washington

This is the first time all year that it has snowed in our town and actually stuck. My little guy Carter has been thrilled about it.. me.. not so much.  I'm really looking forward for spring already!!! I've been day dreaming of blue skies and flip flops. In the mean time.. I'll keep enjoying time by the heater and oversized sweaters.
