OOTD and Catch Up

Happy Friday Friends! I am once again typing from 35,000 feet. I am headed back from being out west on a business trip to California with Glenn. Newport Beach and Del Mar were on the agenda. We squeezed in some bike riding together. I even shopped a bit and was able to catch an unbelievable West Coast sunset.  I can’t say I was upset about the location but I sure do hate being gone from my babies. I know they were in good hands though with their Mimi and PawPaw and probably didn’t even notice I was gone.

Weird clothes  for me last week. I just wasn’t feeling anything. Every single day I was just feeling pretty blah and I think my clothes showed this. Maybe it was the fact that I was traveling at the end of the week but here’s to hoping I can pull it together this week a bit more even though I am going to be at conference half of the week.


Speaking of work, I will not see my students for a full five days in a row until the second week of December. For all of you non-teachers, you have no idea how hard this is but trust when I tell you it’s brutal.  And adds a whole other layer to my life.  And for all of you teachers, you get why I am stressed out. Not to mention sub plans are harder than daily plans.

And back to talking about clothes, I am so wanting to get in on the bootie craze but I am not joking when I tell you that I can’t for the life of me figure out how in the world someone my age wears them and makes them look normal. I just don’t get it. I have tried pairs on, brought pairs home and yet still I can’t find a pair that is “right” for me. So, I am thinking I am not meant for them but I sure do have envy of those of you that can wear them!

Hope you  enjoyed the weekend. I soaked up some sunshine, read a book and am now happily home snuggling my babies! Here’s to a new week!


OOTD {Week 8}

Happy Friday Friends!  Yesterday was my Friday. We have a four day weekend for our seniors to visit colleges! How nice is that? So, I hopped a flight last night to Washington, D.C. to visit my brother and sister in law and their new addition Reese. Yes, I am leaving my kids for two nights alone. For the first time ever since they were born.  And I cried when my car service showed up to take me to the airport.  I cried until Brady hugged me for the fourth time and told me he was going to miss me and I was worried he was going to start crying so I pulled it together. I know my kids are in good hands and my sweet husband called me on Facetime right before I got on the plane.

This week was pretty mild again. The temperatures were in the low 70’s every single day and the sunshine was abundant.  This is making dressing tricky.  With the mornings being down right chilly but afternoons being warm I found myself wearing these in between pieces this week.


I am looking forward to snuggling my niece the next two days and then still having two days with my own two kids! Happy Weekend Friends!
