Rocking the Wet Look

We're on to week 3 of  The Spring Challenge. Still having fun, so thank you Alison for getting me out of my comfort zone and giving me easy outfits that I just have to grab in the morning and don't really have to think much about it.

In case you missed the other days, outfits 1 & 2 and outfits 3-9. Now onto this weeks outfits.

 Day 10

This was a Monday and the outfit called for jeans, but I felt like that was too casual for a Monday, so I switched out the jeans for blue colored pants. I know so close, but I felt fancier, just go with it.

In the picture my top seems crazy, but it's really just stripes, but guess the eyes do funny things, I wonder if that's what it's like when I'm actually wearing it to other people...hmmm.?? No one has complained yet, so I'll go with it.

Pants - Loft (old), Shirt - Old Navy (I saw it on the clearance rack last week), Sweater - Kohls, Shoes - DSW (no longer available), Bracelet - Forever 21 (old), Necklace - Loft (old)

I heart my leopard flats and I can't believe it took me this long to buy them! Now to find the perfect leopard scarf.

Day 11

I really liked this outfit, it was super comfy and just a great outfit all around. I actually wore this to take Baby Fox to the movies for the very first time.

Boyfriend Jeans - Old Navy, Bright Tank - Target, Button Down - Target, Scarf - Old Navy, Shoes - Toms (similar)

That necklace is from Brighton, and when you open it, it has a little gold heart in there and inscribed on the necklace it says, "You have a Heart of Gold", and Mr. found someone to engrave his name and Baby Fox's name on the gold heart, now we just need to get Mini Fox's name engraved on it. I love it so much.

Day 12

This outfit was so comfy, it felt like wearing my pj's all day. I love the bright sweater and the scarf too.

Skirt - Nordstroms, White Tee - Target, Sweater - Target, Scarf - Old Navy, Shoes - Toms (similar)

Day 13

There's that crazy looking shirt again, I swear it's just regular stripes. I had a striped tee, but it got a hole in it after it's first washing, so I returned it and didn't get a chance to wash it before this. I like how simple this outfit is, and the necklace just adds that little bit of pop to make it interesting.

Mr. picked out the shoes on our shopping trip, doesn't he have great taste? And they are so comfy!

Skinnys -  Loft, Shirt - Old Navy (on clearance rack), Shoes - Target , necklace - JCrew (Old), Bracelet - Francesca's Collection (Old)

Right after taking these pictures, I was helping Mr. put the pool cover on (it was supposed to be in the mid 90's this week, and guess what happened?

Yep, that's right I fell into the pool!

Baby Fox thought it was hilarious! I told our Nanny, so over the weekend I fell into the pool, she said, oh yea I know, Baby Fox told me "Mommy fell into the Pool!"

I fell in, and Mr. says, wait, I need to get the camera, so he's taking my picture of me getting out of the pool, laughing hysterically, and then says, hey you should do another outfit post!

Didn't you know that the wet look is really in right now?

Good thing we have a pretty private backyard, there was no way I was going into the house with wet jeans, talk about something that can hold a ton of water

Day 14

I have a confession, I actually wore the above outfit after this outfit, but since that was the outfit of the day, and since I didn't wear Day 14 outfit at all, I'll substitute. Now that I got that out of the way.

I went for a cousin spa day with 9 of my cousins, super fun! So I decided to take an outfit post in the lobby of the hotel.

Skirt - Target, Black Tee - Target, Jean Jacket - Old Navy, Sandals - Target, Necklace - Groopdealz (old), Bracelet - Forever 21 (old

Then I wanted to try and get some photos outside, but it was crazy windy and thought I didn't want to start another fashion trend, so I went with the ones above.

My sister and I tried to get some photos too. Scarf in the face, isn't that how everyone wears it now?

So this picture right here shows what a difference changing your white balance on your camera can do for you! I didn't photoshop this at all, I just changed the white balance and ISO, crazy right?

Day 15

I know this is getting so long right? It almost needs two posts, but then what fun would that be?

White Skinny Jeans - Loft, Striped Tee - Target (this is soft and only $6, go get it right now!),, Cropped Jean Jacket - Old Navy, Scarf - Old Navy (Old), Shoes - Toms (similar)

This is a really good go-to outfit, really comfy. I'm all about comfort these days.

Day 16

I would like to start off by says, it really bothers me that Mr. didn't tell me my necklace was crooked! Like how can you let me walk around like that Mr? Totally his fault, completely

Skirt - Nordstroms, Shirt - Target, Sweater - Kohls, Sandals - Target, Necklace and Bracelet- Francesca's Collection (Old)

How cute are these sandals with the skirt? 

And if you made it to the end of this post, congrats!

Good and Bad News

Which do you want to hear first? I always pick bad cause then it won't seem as bad when you hear the good.

So here's my BAD news.
I lost my iPod Touch. I left it on the treadmill when I went to my Boot Camp Class. I realized it right before going to bed, so I quickly called the gym and they said that things that are of value they put in the safe and she didn't have the key. So I'd have to call back today. I'm waiting for a respectable time to call. 6am seems too early. Of course because I'm a girl I couldn't sleep because I was just thinking about my poor iPod, all lonely and scared. Hoping the new fancy gym we signed up at, have people who don't need a 7 year old iPod. Yep that's right, I have a 1st generation iPod Touch. I use it everyday for 7+ hours a day...I'm going to be lost without it, not to mention all of my music I've collected over the years...and not in an iTunes kind of way.

This is how I feel, dramatic I know

I don't have a picture of me crying, I, however, do have a picture of Baby Fox crying, he was upset that it was bedtime and that he couldn't keep running up and down the hallway
Now on to the GOOD news. The timing couldn't have been more perfect. I still don't have a smart phone, I mention it here, here and here, not obsessed or anything. So about a a week ago, Mr. comes home and starts off a story, so don't get excited because this story does not end in your favor. He tells me that his company said he could upgrade his phone, blah blah, but in the end they said that the date was wrong and that he couldn't. Boo. So yesterday, he tells me, the Phone Lady called him and said that he was in fact eligible for a new phone and that he should go order it through the company website. He did, they sent a confirmation and then a few hours later sent him a shipping receipt. So it looks like I might have a new iPhone next week! Next week people! I can hardly contain myself. This works out perfect, if I did in fact lose my iPod, then I can just use my new iPhone! Get ready for some picture crazy posts! :)

This is how I feel, happy with ice cream all over my face. Oh to be a kid again.

A Little of This and a Little of That

I took off early from work on Thursday so that we could take Baby Fox to his first movie, RIO 2, he loved it!

We let him eat as much candy as he wanted, and then pretty much had a stomachache the rest of the weekend, oops! He actually sat in one of our laps most of the time as he didn't weigh enough to keep the seats down and they kept folding up on him. haha.

Friday  the gym we signed up for in November, FINALLY opened! We finally got to check it out, and boy was it worth the wait! It's the most awesome gym ever, and it actually makes me excited to work out again. It has a rock wall, splash pad, two giant water slides, the best kids activity center ever (I can send Baby Fox to gymnastics, karate, music, intro to sports and lots of other things). So worth the money! We're just hoping we can figure out a new routine so we can use it. :)

Since we worked out and were feeling good, Mr. wanted some cookies, so after dinner Baby Fox and I made chocolate chip cookies, yum! That's really his "cheese" face, he isn't really that miserable, really. He couldn't wait to eat the beaters.

Saturday I did a cousins spa day, it was glorious, I was gone all day, we did a Barre class (really awesome if you haven't checked it out), treated myself to a mani/pedi and some lunch.

This picture color turned out super weird!

And then I tried to take an outfit post and the wind won. Or maybe I'm creating a new hair style?

Sunday some good friends were visiting from Virgina, and we went to this really cool air museum at the John Wayne Airport, it was really cool cause you could also see all the airplanes landing from the hanger we were in.

They had this take a picture thing there, it took at least 10 tries to get this picture. We didn't realize how high Mr. was throwing Baby Fox, but Baby Fox loved it.

And then just after taking an outfit post, I fell into our pool.

Now back to Mother-In-Law and her bestie are coming to visit this weekend, so excited to see them!

Things That I Love

Love this girl and her crazy bed head! And yes it is in fact necessary to have that many pacifiers in her crib, you can't even see how many of them she's already thrown out of her crib and are sitting on the ground :)

He thinks he's a monkey, love his imagination

Love that every time we set her lose and this shopping cart is out, she goes straight for it, I think we have a shopper on our hands! YES!

Love that he loves cooking with me, every time I cook something he wants to come help me. (although it might look like this picture and the above picture was taken on the same day, it was not, he just happens to be wearing the same outfit)

See there she is again with her cart, and while we're at it, how many toys do these kids have?!

Love that he loves helping Mommy even when it's to unload the dishwasher, and he asked, please let this last forever!

Love my friends, they are awesome, I meet these ladies when the kids were about 3 months old and I don't know what I would do without them! Here are the kids at 3 months old

And now three years later, still all best friends, plus each one of them now has a sibling

Love how Mr. got dressed and then realized Baby Fox was wearing a striped shirt, so he went and changed so that both he and Baby Fox were wearing Stripey shirts

Love that Mini Fox has Mr. wrapped around her little finger and he would do anything for her, and she is already such a Daddy's girl. Of course her first word was Dada.

Dancing with his girl
Love that he likes to jump into my pictures

Love that everytime I see this picture it makes me laugh

Baby Fox and what he thought of carrots
So what are the little things that you love? I'd love to hear about them!
