What I Wore Wednesday

Wednesday, you snuck up on me a little bit! Monday was spent recovering from all of Brayden’s birthday party festivities, and yesterday we ran a LOT of errands and caught up with some friends! I am in the process of getting my planner all set up and updated because school starts in THREE WEEKS and I just have to get it together.

Let’s get to it, shall we?

maxi skirt: Old Navy // tank: Old Navy

This tank was just a tad too long, so hello to the knot on the side. Makes it slightly more flattering (rouching!) and a better length paired with the skirt. Did I mention this outfit feels like pajamas?

dress (folded under to look like a maxi skirt): WalMart // tank: WalMart

Keeping with the “feels like pajamas” theme, I found this dress on clearance at Walmart. It was too long (which I am used to), so I just rolled it at my bust, put a tank over it and knotted the tank. Done and done. This was the ONLY photo I have from Brayden’s party, too. But hey, its just as fun for me as it is for my sister!

mint skinnies: GAP // top: Charmed Boutique

This cooler weather we have been having has been awesome. I love it. You will not hear me complain. This outfit was perfect for a play date at the park and running 100 errands yesterday.

Dirty Kids are Happy Kids

There were two things that the kids could not WAIT to get at our new house– their swing set and their sand box. There was one of those that I dreaded. I will let you figure that one out. *cough* SANDBOX *cough* Truth be told, the sandbox is not my favorite thing. I just hate…

High Five for Friday

Another week of summer gone, another week closer to school starting for Brayden. *sigh* He will go EVERY morning this year, so obviously our summer ways will have to end soon. I’m guessing that rolling out of bed at 8am for school at 8:15 won’t work too well. Brayden turned FIVE yesterday. A whole hand!…

Thanks to Great Clips for sponsoring today’s discussion, but my love for teachers and their role in our communities is all my own.

DIY Farmhouse Table

Before we moved to this house, we knew we were going to need some sort of table in the kitchen since it has a small eat in area. We did some shopping around and I found the perfect farmhouse table, but it was WAY out of our budget. Brandon, being the handy guy he is,…

Love Your Ordinary

There is nothing extraordinary about me, my day to day routine, or my life. I am just an ordinary midwestern girl who married her high school sweetheart, and now I stay home with our two kids. Ordinary. I remember days when I had newborns and how I would feel as if I got nothing accomplished….

High Five for Friday

TGIF! We have had a fun-filled week over here. We are truly soaking up all that summer has to offer! I broke down and got Piyo along with a month of Shakeology. I can’t explain WHY I love that stuff so much, but it works for me. I have more energy and less cravings when…

Scenes from our Weekend {Part 2}

I took a zillion photos this weekend, so I had to break it up into two posts. I know, who am I with all of these photos?! The kids did a few sparklers, and I totally called it when I said Kenley would LOVE them. I know, her face doesn’t show it here, but she…
