Steve Madden boots that are on the way! I have been eyeballing this pair of boots for some time on a number of my favorite fashion bloggers sites! So excited that they are on their way in time for my 30 for 30! Next...the "top" choices!

As much as I ADORE the clutch, this outfit started with the shoes after a miracle repair performed by Mr. McFarland, aka the shoe whisperer. These shoes are over 4 years old now, and I will never forget when I purchased them. It was my first trip to Colorado. Michael was working, and with the help of my dear friend Trisha, I was determined to find the Nordstrom Rack that she raved about! I remember driving down the interstate, gripping my cell phone and taking directions from my stylish and super savvy friend. When I made it I was in awe. It was my first visit to Nordstrom Rack. As I strolled down the shoe isle, my heart was beating out of my chest. I couldn't focus, my eyes went crazy with delight. Trisha says she will never forget the excitement in my voice when I called to inform her that I had made it to the promise land. Now I still haven't picked my 30....I better get going!

Starting out the new year realizing my life needed change, It came to my attention that my blog needed a name. The name that encompasses all that I do came to me this morning when I was "workin' it". I had a meeting this morning, which had to be cancelled due to the fact that my little ones are home very sick. After almost 2 weeks of the lingering cough, I took them to Dr. E. Normally he tells me I am overreacting, it's just a cold, go home. Yesterday, he says: Don't freak...but Kennedy has pneumonia, and Kade is the lucky winner of an ear infection. Five minutes after we got home, I saw the elementary school on the caller id box. I knew what I would hear on the other end, and I was right! Mrs. Hayes, Leanna has a fever, can you come pick her up? So I franticallly called my mother to come to the rescue. So 3 out of 4 kids home. Sick. The 4th and well child was excited all day about a mother son date night that I had planned for just the two of us. I couldn't cancel, and I didn't. Hubs walks in from work and takes over and we were off! Great time, just the two of us and it was much needed. I step in the door and realize I haven't finished the post for our weekly column. I bang that out and send it off, read with hubs for a few minutes and it's off to bed. So this morning, during my devotional time, I realized I was "workin' it". I had to tackle my priorities, cancel my meetings, and love on my sick babies. So what does it mean to "work it"? My translation: Focusing on what is most important, trusting that God will work it out! My life, in all my roles...is a job! So with the strength only He can give, I plan to "work it" one way or another! And because I love it, I will be workin' my wardrobe as well!

From the moment I put on my outfit today I couldn't get it out of my head, the old Saturday Night Live skit! I love it! My bestie and I have randomly laughed at this for years! I love you A! I got "lucky" at Lucky Brand in Vegas! I practically stole this top and skirt and I love them! For fun I wore my rain boots today...hubs told me rain all day. He was sadly mistaken, BUT I had fun anyway! Cheers!

When in Vegas right???? I decided to funktify, yes that is my own word, my hair today! I am digging it! I don't change it up at home much because I barely have the time to dry it! Being here alone with my hubby and no one begging me for goldfish crackers or a drink, or help with homework, I can actually have some fun with my "do"! Yesterday I had a fabulous day at the Fashion Show Mall and the Shoppes at Palazzo. I even found a store that featured nothing but vintage couture! Ahhhhmazing! I don't gamble much, so viewing the hotels, eating, going to shows and shopping keep me a happy camper in this fun city! Tonight is dinner at Fix at the Bellagio followed by "O". I am so super excited! So today's outfit is casual fun, top by Banana Republic, Joe's Jeans, gray belt, J. Crew, Stella and Dot vintage link bracelet and black suede riding boots! I am ready to hit the Vegas strip as soon as my husband is done with his shift!

So I am back, well we have been back. I have been in somewhat of a directionless state. I shared a note through facebook, but as a quick version, basically I feel God telling me to slow down, and spend less time doing all of these busy things in my life. I get, "I don't know how you do it", a LOT! To tell you the truth, I don't do that great a job at everything combined! I have been doing the Master Cleanse over the past 3 days. I am using it as a fast, seeking God and direction. I still don't feel like I have clear direction! I have so many things that I WANT to do, but I am really trying to let God tell me what to do. More and more I feel like that means take a step back. So now comes the hard part, what do I let go of? So I will continue to pray until I have closure! ON a lighter note, here are two of my favs from vacation! One at the Biltmore, and the other one of my favorite outfits of the trip! Hope everyone is having an Oh SO happy new year!
