Mid-Week Blast

Top: Akiko, Last Call, Jeans: Old Navy, Shoes: Plenty by Tracy Reese
Picnic Lunch Date #1
Made by me at MOPs! Reminds me of Jones Design Co. post that was so precious!

This week has gone no slower than the rest, and I apologize for the lackluster outfit picture. It's bad when you don't even have time to set up the tripod! BUT, I have somewhat happy kids, does that count? Yesterday I made this scrabble tile charm at MOPs, you need to read this post by Jones Design Co. to get what it means to me! I hope you all are having a fantastic week filled with everything you love!

Weekend Happenings

A Friday bridge run in Clearwater Beach, followed by sun sitting of coarse! 

Saturday Cuban lunch at Cuban Cafe! DELISH

Sported my Mary Janes to church on Sunday
Well, I started my weekend off by ditching work Friday and spending a day at the beach with my friend. A nice run, followed by lettuce wraps and these delicious no bake energy bites, but I made mine with craisins and raisins instead of the chocolate chips. They really are yummy. Saturday was great. We watched our daughter's soccer game and enjoyed a yummy cuban sandwich and soup from one of our local favorites. Sunday was church, a nap, and Secret Keeper Girl LIVE with my daughter. So blessed to have that time with her, what an amazing event and such a great way for mom and daughter to connect! I know she left with the promise that GOD is her King...and she is His princess. It is unbelievable what labels young girls are struggling with. I am so thankful for events such as these to open the doors of communication. With so many lies in the world, it is our job to teach them the truth. That is so important to me!! So what did you do this weekend???

Today, I am Teacher!

Top, Cardigan & Flats: J. Crew, Skirt: Nordstrom Rack Sunnies: Marc Jacobs

Yes, today I am in I played the role of teacher in a commercial for an associate of mine. My daughter got to tag along as a student and even had a cute speaking part. She did so great! When I walked out the door my mom said, "That's pretty fancy for a teacher." My reply was: "Well, this is how I would dress if I were a teacher!" I love that my job allows me the opportunity for fun days! How was your Monday? P.S. sorry for wearing the same cardigan two posts in a row...WHOOPS! :)

Non-Fancy Friday!

Dress: Marshalls, Cardigan and belt: J. Crew, Boots: MIA

Well the post title explains how I feel about this little number. Not fancy but sure is comfy, and I'll take that on a Friday. How was your week? Mine went by so fast I don't even know what happened. Between work projects and kids, life is moving at laser speed right now. I am looking forward to relaxing at home tonight, chicken is marinating as we speak. My back patio is awaiting me, and I can't wait! Happy Friday everyone!

It's Wednesday Already?

I don't know what happened to the time this week. I was hoping to do this post on Sunday, and it is now Wednesday!! Our weekend was a blast! My husband and I hit the road early Saturday am and headed to St. Pete for the Rock n' Roll Half Marathon. That evening, he took me out for an early Valentine dinner at Charley's. Amazing! Next morning I ran 13.1 miles in 2:03:17, my best time ever. I was so happy to have my running partner Andrea with me. She did fantastic as well and even beat her goal time. It was freezing cold, windy, and I don't think my toes warmed up until about mile 8. Sunday evening was the Daddy Daughter dance at my K's preschool. Wasn't she just precious? This dress was one of the steals I found at the consignment shop I was telling you about. She was a little princess! Happy middle of the week to you!!!

It's Fine to Consign!

Cardigan: J. Crew, Jeans: Joe's, Top: Free People, Flats: Target

Let me tell you why it's fine to consign, this Free People top! One of my favorite second hand stores is having a moving sale, and I scored this top for 50% off, never worn, and still had the tags on it! I LOVE it! I also scored some fantastic clothes for the kids. I didn't have a CLUE what I was missing before I adopted thrifting and consignment shopping. It's amazing what blessings budget cuts bring. Yes....I just said that! :)

Fancy Pants

Well, I had to title this carefully as I didn't want to draw too much crazy attention! Fancy pants is my code for no pants, hee hee! Remember the boudoir shoot with Shipra Panosian and Trisha Weinreich I was telling you about? Well, here are some of my photos as promised! It was so much fun to assist them in this. Both Shipra and Trisha are super fabulous and I am blessed to have the opportunity to work with them. A little bit of makeup, a funky hairstyle, Shipra with the camera, and suddenly I had the courage to play the part! :)
