Recently I’ve been on the lookout for patterns – like I mentioned here.  Luckily for me, when I was checking out eShakti’s fall collection, I came across this beautiful floral print blouse.

I wore it a little dressy in these pictures – it was parent-teacher conferences – but I can easily see this blouse in more of a casual light, too.  (Blazer and jeans anyone?)

As for last week’s break, it was definitely great to step away for a little.  I’m convinced that there’s nothing that a few days in the Caribbean can’t fix!

With two little ones, I’m always using some sort of hands-free bag.  And while a sturdy cross-body bag is my go-to, backpacks are making a scene once again.  I decided to give this simple dark brown one a try over the weekend…you might be seeing it during the week too.

I’ve been playing around with some different hair styles in hopes that when I chop off my hair I don’t regret not doing anything with it while it was long.  This straightened pony was very easy to do (and not too time consuming!)  Polly said she loves fixing her hair like this and I can easily tell why!

What the…?

25 Jul 2012 Permalink

Question…a person you know has a little schmutz on them.  Do you tell them right away, or do you continue the conversation trying to ignore the obvious??  I flat-out tell the person.  My husband on the other hand usually doesn’t even notice that anything is there.

After taking these pictures though he did notice something red on my arm.  Paint…strawberry jelly…blood…I had no idea what it was!  I’m just glad it wasn’t brown…’cause no one likes to play the “is it chocolate, or is poop?” game.
