The big graduation

First up, you have my apologies for my outfit. One of my peeps was sick this morning, thus destroying my original outfit plan. I'm very limited with what I can wear, due to the extremely awesome boot.

  • Black short-sleeved sweater - Banana Republic. New, bought it in Las Vegas. I'm thinking that it's not very slimming. Of course, I've already cut the tags off. Darn. I look like I have a spare tire in the photo. I promise that it's not quite that tragic in person.
  • Purple tank top - Banana Republic
  • Amethyst necklace - Tiffany & Co
  • Black capri pants - Jcrew
  • Black flat - Nordstrom (Me Too brand)
  • Awesome boot
My eating was great yesterday, until my plans to go to the gym in the evening were foiled by a sick husband. I was frustrated & ate a bunch of dark chocolate roasted almonds. I know, genius. Anyway, I estimate that I was about 300 calories over my plan as a result. By the way, those almonds are fantastic. Whoever blogged about them & put the idea into my head is evil!

  • Breakfast - coffee, fruit, bagel thin + a soy sausage
  • Snack - dried fruit/nuts
  • Lunch - edamame + small broccoli cheddar soup & baguette (Panera)
  • Snack - homemade protein ball
  • Dinner - grilled chicken spinach salad
  • Snack - blueberries
And, my oldest son Sam graduates from preschool tomorrow. I can't believe he's going to be a kindergartner in the fall. It goes too fast!


  1. Pretty necklace! And oh my goodness, he is adorable... congrats on him going to kindergarten next year, it's a great year (I teach kinder so I might be slightly biased)!

  2. When my workout plans are foiled I always have the urge to eat junk food, such a defeatists attitude! Sorry hubs in sick, get better soon! Your son is so precious!

  3. I think you dress around the boot VERY well!
