1, 2, 3

1. It's my special time of the month. 

2. Yesterday my grandma and I went shopping to find her some jeggings. She likes the good stuff- and always ends up with arms full of Free People, Splendid, etc. This for me is torturous- and each time I go with her, I smile and run for sizes and silently remind myself never again as I die a little inside. This next part I'm going to say quick, because it's really embarrassing...
Tried on pants that I have been loving for a while. Fit perfect. Left dressing room to chase Jax. Held screaming child while Gma bought all her stuff. Went home. Sad. Looked up jeans to find them cheaper. They weren't cheaper anywhere. Blog surfed. Other girl was wearing them on her blog,
thenicried. The end. Re-read #1.

3. Wicked was amaaaaazzzzzinggggg. I would see it again and again if I could. Now I understand everyone who sees it three, four and five times. I cannot stop listening to the soundtrack. I am actually sick of it, but I can't stop. Jax loves it too.

4. I just can't get the chair. I can't. I have pre-buyer's remorse- so I can't even imagine what the post-remorse would be like.

5. Last night Jax was rearranging the drawers in his armoire- and carried all of McKay's socks to a drawer in the cupboard. I constantly wish that I could document every new thing he does every day. Today I put his new car seat in the car, and it was so weird to be able to look in my rear-view mirror and see his little face looking all around the car and outside. He still looked so small. We did our grocery shopping this morning and he just laid on my shoulder and slept for half of it. He is still a baby. 


  1. i love your outfit! i want to see Wicked SOOO Bad. One Day :)

  2. Ahh..been there and done that on #2! and #4! I like that you talk about affording stuff in such a real way! So many blogs post their fab designer stuff and money never is mentioned..and it always leaves me wondering..hmmm are you real? How do you afford all this stuff!! Money is an issue we all deal with and I don't get why it's so hush hush sometimes! I have a couple pieces of furniture that I have been eyeballing for years..literally years..luckily my wedding is coming up, so I am putting that on the registration! Fingers crossed, maybe people can chip in together for it as I don't expect one person to foot the bill!

  3. i hate when #2 happens. so, so, so much. the other day, robbie ordered me an anthropologie dress that i've been dying to have…it was my favorite thing they had all season. and then a week later he got an email saying, "oops, sorry, it was actually out of stock." it. was. the. worst. and now i see it everywhere i go. but that's totally the kind of thing that would make me weep if it was my special time too.

    chin up -- i bet you'll find 'em elsewhere!

  4. pre-buyers remorse is the worst thing! don't get it! I have a bad feeling jaja

  5. love the clashing prints! love playing around with animal prints!

    i have a story like that too. except i was in AUSTRIA (i live in the US) and i was like, 'oh i'll find that top somewhere else...'
    TWO YEARS LATER, after constantly looking for a top like that i saw one in the store and as it turns out i had left my wallet. went back to get it the next day? gone. never saw this kind of top ever again!
