First things first. Michael was out of town on Friday night & I was bored, so for the first time ever, I watched Jersey Shore. Hello, crazy ridiculous, yet at the same time . . . strangely addictive. I watched it via OnDemand, so I watched three episodes from this season, but the season finale wasn't up yet. I'm anxiously awaiting it. Staying up late watching the antics of those crazy kids was fun, but not when I had to get up several times during the night with Nick (he was having bad dreams). The bags under my eyes are big enough to go on a trip.

Next up - my sister (mom of an 8 year old & a 6 year old boy), my best friend (mom of a 7 year old and 10 year old girl), plus myself (mom of a 4 & 5 year old boy) & my best friend's mom went to Great Wolf Lodge on Saturday & stayed the night. It was fun, but crazy & exhausting & I want a serious nap. Holy smokes, chasing after the kids up & down the water slides, around the hotel. . . Work is looking very relaxing today. :-)

I tried to make reasonably healthy food choices this weekend, but considering that there were few good options, the scale was not my friend this morning. I'm ready to eat well & get back to the gym.

Here's what I'm wearing today:
Bad hair - still going. I'm hoping to get it cut next week and minimize the frightening mess I have going on.
Black sweater - Ann Taylor Loft
Magenta top - Ann Taylor Loft
Jeans - Always Skinny from the Gap
Black flowered flats - Ann Taylor Loft (I know. I went through a huge ATL phase. I love how they remade their brand).

I have to tuck the shirt in, because it's very long, but looking at the pictures, I think it maybe gives me a muffin top. And, the jeans are riding a little low, which does not do my hips any favors. I need to rework this look. Love the shoes. They are comfortable & surprisingly, go with a lot.

I need to hit the gym today & eat a lot of produce. Hope you have a wonderful Monday!


  1. Love the shoes--very cute! I watched my first episode of Jersey Shore almost as a joke just to see what the fuss was about--sadly, I now have an addiction. :)

  2. I love Gap skinny jeans! I have a pair that are kind of distressed. I got them on clearance. I really want a dark pair like the ones you're wearing, but can't ever get a good deal, and don't want to shell out the $$. Maybe I will convince my hubby for my bday in May...

  3. Sara - sign up for their mailing list. They sometimes have deals where they offer 20%, 30%, or even 40% off the entire store with a coupon. It's usually during the week. That's how I got these! :-)

  4. Vanessa - totally! I was watching it pretty much as a joke, so I could understand what everyone was talking about, but I got sucked in!
