Happy Monday!  It’s weird, since I’m on maternity leave….I have little concept of days.  Weekdays and weekends, the same.  I can’t wait until Lydia gets a little bigger and we can return to normal weekend routines.  This weekend was a blur of walks, naps, and lots of feedings! But, I did get my hair done….man how life changing that making a hair appointment is a victory!

Linking up with: Style Sessions, What I Wore Wednesday, Totally Posted Tuesday



  1. Cute! You really dressed up a baseball tee and made it adorable!

    btw, I know what you mean about the days not meaning anything. Since I work nights and do 12 hr shifts 3 days a week and my schedule changes weekly, days never mean anything to me. lol. Usually, I’m off when everyone else is at work but I’m working on weekends.

  2. You look just stunning! I love the outfit and those shoes!! Beautiful!!
    I still feel that even after the haze of early baby days the days can run together in a whole new way.


    • Uh oh, it doesn’t get better????

      • It does get better!! Yes! But there are still times where when they are older that the schedule of school, work, activities and home all run together and feel a little “Groundhog day”. The haze fades to a busy day to day that can run together. Also, it is winter and I feel a bit like that with my three girls under 8 right now.

  3. Ha! Totally understand the feeling of days just running together! I can’t keep em straight for the life of me :) I’m in desperate need of a hair appointment! Happy you could get one in! LOVE what you did with a baseball tee!! SO fun! I need to be more brave in my wardrobe. Thanks for inspiring as usual girl! XO
