Mixing Prints and Business With Pleasure!

Top: Marshalls clearance rack YEARS ago! Skirt: J. Crew,
Shoes: Charles David, c/o Marshalls,
 Bracelets: Stella & Dot

I am totally post...posting! That would be because I am still in my workout clothes from this morning. These pics are from our beach trip last week. My husband and I took the littles to the beach last Friday and spent the night. We had the BEST time! I was able to work on the drive down, and when we got there, I put aside my iPhone and iPad and had some fun in the sun with the best people on earth, my family! I love mini breaks, and as much as I love all six of us together, it was nice to spend quality time with my husband and the littles! I got a few compliments on my outfit when I arrived at the hotel, and two of them said, I would never think to put that together! To me, that is a score! :)

Eyes Wide Open, Heart Not There Yet.

Top: Target, Skirt: Vintage, or should be I have had it so long, Shoes: Boutique 9
Belt: Lucky Brand, Bracelet: Stella & Dot

Balance, I think I have posted on this topic before. My tips on how to do all things work, motherhood and marriage, right? Well I would like to speak truth for a's not working. Someone said that a woman can have it all, but in stages. I suppose I thought I would challenge that and prove that I could be the official do it all woman. After months and months of coming to the realization that I need to slow down, only to start back up again....I finally got it when I was handed my Myers Briggs test results yesterday. Here was the most eye opening part....and I quote, "Under stress, ENFPs may have difficulty saying no. Consequently, they may take on too many projects without any practical way of completing them." Well folks, that's me to a T! So with that said, this super tired supermom is doing some praying, thinking, and there is going to be some changing! FOR REAL this time! Would you hold me to that when I post about my next project? Can a blogger get some acccountablity? With that said, it's time to go snuggle on the couch with my littles! Good night!

To Be Like Her

This was her brooch. I am so honored to wear it!

Dress: Andrew Marc New York, Belt: J. Crew, Bracelet: Grana's, Shoes: Adrienne Vittadini

I am so sorry for the delay, but on the ride home from our cruise my mother called to tell me that my Grana passed away. I blogged about her during my 30 Day dress project here:
She was amazing, and I want to be just like her. A volunteer, mother, and wife, this lady was first class all the way. Riding with her to deliver Meals on Wheels, and going with her to help needy families instilled core values in me that I did not appreciate at the time, but are now priceless. Heaven rejoiced a little louder on Monday morning, as Cordielia Forbes Kincaid Perry walked through the gates!

Runway Show Weekend

Meghan, m. marie boutique, and I

My Amazing Cast!
What a fun weekend! I planned and executed my very first runway show! Small scale, but perfect in every way! It was modern fashion with a twist by incorporating the characters of the Wizard of Oz. Pictured on top is Meghan with m. marie boutique and I. She was a HUGE help in bringing our Wicked Witch and Dorothy dresses! Jos. A. Bank Lakeland was FANTASTIC as well, providing our menswear, and the props.....all me baby! Fun, fun, fun!

Yes, I Would Like One Suntan Please!

Top: Glam, Hatties Branches,  Skirt: Calvin Klein,  Booties: Sam Edleman,  Owl Necklace: Vintage , thrifted

Hubs and I are cruising next week. I am white as a sheet. I considered spray tan, but I am scared. Has anyone done it? Will I be orange and then peel and look like I have a skin disease half way through our cruise? Help! On a good note, when I get back, I will have some color! YAY

That's the way I "bowl!"

Dress: Banana Republic, Beads: Stella & Dot, Clutch: Kenneth Cole, Shoes: Nicole Miller

Last night was FUN! I went with Angela to a celebrity bowling tournament. The celebrities consisted of Mrs. Lakeland, some popular bowlers, and a bunch of athletes that I had no clue who they were! I did meet Bo Jackson, and I did the Cupid Shuffle with Ray Lewis. HA! The laughs were needed and the company was the best! These shots were taken by my 9 year old! She is such a good sport! She just keeps on snapping! :) I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!
