This is an outfit I wore to church one Sunday and I took this pic after we got home (hence the wrinkles).  My blouse is from J.Crew but is a couple years old, similar style here, J.Crew skirt, Steve Madden Heels, Necklace

This stuff is AMAZING and I’m obsessed with it!  I have really thin, limp hair and this gives it so much body, I’m in love!  I got this from Amazon.  BTW, the bottle is super lightweight so you’re going to think it’s empty but it’s not and make sure to use it sparingly, you only need a little bit.

I found these cute coral heels at Target!  Can you believe it?  They’re perfect for Spring and when you see the price you pretty much have to get them.

Here’s another Sunday look… Floral Top is from Forever 21, J.Crew Pencil Skirt, LAMB heels, similar here

I made this inspiration board to go above my desk.  It’s not complete but I love how it’s turning out.  I found the pin board on clearance at Hobby Lobby but found a similar one here, the push pins are from Michaels, they’re Kate Spade inspired for a quarter the price, I love Brittany Fuson prints and can’t get enough (the ones I used on the board are from an old planner), fur pom poms,  J.Crew crystal necklace, similar pearl necklace.  I’ll post it when it’s all complete and hanging on my wall.

Another Sunday outfit, everything is older but I’ve linked some similar items… Similar Blouse, Similar Pencil Skirt, Similar Bow Heels, Similar Necklace

Tuesday was International Women’s Day so I posted this picture of my daughter Elle and I.  I’ve been so lucky to have an amazing women as my mother, I’ve always looked up to her and she inspires me to be a better mom everyday.  If Elle and I can have the same relationship my mom and I have I’ll be the happiest momma in the world.  I’m so proud of the girl that Elle is growing up to be, she’s strong, independent, so much fun, and she’s such a sweet and caring young women.  I included this quote from Winnie The Pooh, I love the message it gives. “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and loved more than you’ll ever know.” I hope we can all encourage our daughters to remember to uplift, support, and encourage other girls/women because that’s what makes us stronger and better.

I’ve taken a bit of a break from blogging (almost two months) and I’ve missed it so much!  We’ve been beyond busy around here and things aren’t exactly slowing down but I’m ready to blog again, even if it’s only a couple days a week for now.

About two months ago Joel accepted a new job up in Chicago and he’s been commuting back and forth so I’ve been a single mom while he’s gone.  I can’t complain, I’m a stay at home mom and my kids aren’t babies so it’s really not that bad.  My hats off to every working, single mother out there, I don’t know how you do it!

I’ll be busy packing boxes and keeping up with my kids schedules over the next month but to keep from living in workout clothes I’ll try to put a couple outfit posts up a week.

Thanks so much for following along, I’ve missed y’all!

I love pink and red together and every time I wear them I can’t help but think of Marilyn Monroe in How to Mary a Millionaire, she looked stunning when she sang ‘Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend’!  My mom and I watched that scene at least half a dozen times when I was home for Christmas (my mom’s obsessed with older movies and is making sure I love them too).

Today I’m sharing what I’ll be wearing on Valentine’s Day, my favorite pink and red!  I hope you all have a fabulous Valentine’s Day with the ones you love!
