Oh, boy this weekend should have been relaxing and it spun downhill fairly quick. Wednesday, I spent most of the night being woken up every time I was almost asleep by the husband jerking in pain. Thursday night was much of the same, except, add him vomiting and me cleaning it up. Friday he woke up ridiculously early, and told me he wasn’t going to work. Fast forward to after work I found out he has strep on top of his back problems. Now I’m heading into a weekend taking care of Nate and his problems, Lyla and her broken arm, and working. I know you must be jealous.
I choose to style my red pencil skirt for warmth a little more than fashion. I wouldn’t normally paired it with the otk boots, but I could pair tights and wool socks underneath without worry of what they looked like.
Back to brown?!? Nope, just trying to finish up posting my mass of 30 for 30 outfits that I need to edit and write up. I will probably be short on words the next couple weeks. I’m still trying to get my energy back up.

I know I said that with the new posting schedule Wednesday’s would be Every Man, Woman, and Child posts. However, until I get caught up with the 30 for 30 that will be on the back burner.
I’m also looking for guest posters to go along with a mom and me or mom blogger week. If you are interested in guest posting let me know. I’m open to any take on the theme. How you stay chic with a kid at home, busy working mom keeping it all together, or dressing your future fashion icons. I’m open to anything. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Warm, snuggly, stylish cocoons. I LOVE SWEATER DRESSES! This one, though a cheap Forever 21 find, is surprisingly non-itchy. I wish I could afford a 100% cashmere version, but this one will be a good stand in until I’m gifted one or can afford the splurge. What cold weather splurges do you make?
I can barely keep my eyes open to write this post. My mom had Lyla overnight again, and I wish I could say that Nate and I took advantage of the situation and slept in. In fact, I was up at 5:00 am wide awake and hungry. I ran to the kitchen trying not to wake Nate or the dogs grabbed a banana and jumped back in bed. Unfortunately, after finishing my morning snack I was even more awake than I was a few minutes ago. I did what any sane fashion blogger would do, I checked Twitter, Facebook, and tried catching up on a few blogs. Thankfully, after an hour and a half of that I fell back asleep only to wake up an hour later.
Once Nate and I were both up and ready to go we headed out the door to run a few errands while we were childless. Nate and Lyla got new shoes, and I scoured CVS and Shopko looking for a particular Burt’s Bees lip balm. This wonderful product that I’ve heard rave reviews about was no where to be found. Anybody know where I can find their Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter? Also, don’t they make a lip product in a tin too? Couldn’t find that either.
Sunday, was spent working at church than watching a few of my dancers perform at a nursing home. More on that at a later date. When we finally got home I was wiped. I tried napping, but that was fairly unsuccessful. I finished catching up on 30 for 30 outfit pictures, and started a load of laundry. I would like to report that I got more things done, but I’m only human and a tired one at that.
