Left it for too long.

In other words we actually did take a picture every day this week but a few of the droid photos were so bad that I have substituted some from different days to help out a bit. I also think I may have an extra or two so here we go in no particular order.

Angela's shower was Sunday. I ordered these corsages from etsy and think they are super cute. Beca's didn't do super well but I'm not sure anything of this nature would have done super well on a very excited 5yo.

There is new play equipment at the school.

Rompers for the baby shower.

A mamu dress for Emily. I shortened the straps but they are still a touch long. I think next time I will just do the sleeveless version.

Glue batiking. We are still working on finishing them but its been a fun process.

I have no idea what they are doing aside from making a mess.

Seriously, its just been busy here. Good but busy so forgive the no specifics. maybe you can tell me what they are.

Weekend Roundup

Its been a busy official beginning of summer but we made it through the weekend and I did finish blackout week. Technically I guess I'm still participating since I didn't grab anything black today though I did wear my gypsy skirt again today and I'm guessing most fashion bloggers don't repeat outfits so regularly.

Friday is Emily and I on the back porch. I like the outfit though both pieces are a bit fluffy so they do make me look bigger. They are both really light weight though and it is hot here.

Saturday is Emily and I at the park taken with Neil's Droid. You'll have to take my word on the outfit but the only other one was that same angle from behind and has been deleted. Gap shorts with a little washed out flower print that I just had to have and one of the tank tops I picked up that morning at $2 tank top day at old navy.

Sunday we have Emily spinning in her fluffy. I did wear a navy Loft dress all day that I adore but didn't end up taking a picture.

Today we have Emily thinking so hard that she is sticking her tongue out. I guess I need some more Elijah pictures. We'll see what the week brings.

award, last, more

As always thanks to blogger this will be a bit of a matching game.

Today was the last day of school for the year so I snapped a not that great picture of Elijah leaving.

Yesterday was awards day and Elijah got the Principals award for his class. Not for going to the office the most but for behaving very well all year. I'm glad he's so good for them but sometimes I wish he were as nice to me as he is to his teachers.

Black out days 3 and 4.

Today's outfit is the gypsy skirt I made from my Amy Buttler Love fabric. Its pretty much my favorite set of prints ever and while you can't tell in the picture the skirt has corset ties on both sides that hang down. It also moves really well and I feel great in it. The shirt is a cheap Walmart find. I plan on making something better but this one is OK.

Yesterday, Old Navy navy flower cargo pants that are a size big but make me happy just the same. I liked them when I found them on the sale rack bc they looked camo at first but are actually flowers. Shirt is from H and M. I bought it on my first ever trip there and while the sleeves don't do my shoulders any favors I like its 80s vibe.

Shoes both days are my much sought after Jambu's the color is rasberry and they are from REI though if you want this color you will likely have to order them. I wear an 11 so I almost always have to order everything so no pity from me on that one.

black out days 1 and 2

I decided to do the Already Pretty black out challenge. The goal is to take this week and not wear black clothing since well its summer and colors are cool. Day one is a Liberty of London for Target top and some Hue jeggings. Not sure if I love this look but I got lots of compliments and was comfy so I guess I didn't look awful. Day 2 is a set I made. Dh thought it would be funny to take a picture of me doing laundry and I figured it worked since this outfit feels very 50s housewife to me. Something about the print and shape. The shirt also looks better in real life then it does in the picture I promise.

Less Little

Emily is really looking more like a little girl and less like a toddler lately. Here she is blowing on her toe nails which by the way she made me paint before my coffee this morning.

Sunday was a fun filled day of pure busyness but I didn't take the camera along so all you guys get is a picture of Emily playing with an old cell phone after dinner.

weekly update

Still doing well with the picture taking but not as well with the blog updating so here we go in no particular order. Its a little like a matching game for you my readers.

Elijah had time trials for swim team yesterday. Because of where his birthday fall in regards to the cutoff he will be one of the youngest this season and it will likely be a character building experience. He sees ok with it though as he is still with his friends Jackson and Victor.

We bribed Emily through the potty training process by showing her the bitty babies online and telling her when she could put her poop and potty on the potty all the time we would get her one. It took about two days last week not even and then she had to wait almost a week for shipping.

On Thursday I didn't have a hot poker to stick into my eye so I thought I'd take both kids to the grocery store right before a storm instead. Fun was had by all.

Its been muddy a lot lately so we had to go mud stomping. Emily can't walk in her boots though so she work old sandles.

Emily also learned how to blow bubbles with the good bubble solution this week. More of the good stuff in on my Target list.
