Happy Monday, y'all! I've been having a hard time even keeping track of what day it is haha Mike's work schedule has been so crazy and hectic, and trying to juggle Toby's baseball season with Linden being rowdy as can be... it's hard. If we're all dressed for the day, it's a success to me. Just when I think things are starting to slow down a bit, I'm taken for another crazy ride, so at this point I'm just going to try and enjoy the view. Know what I mean? I've been trying to make the most of my time lately, and I've been so stoked at how productive I've been! The sad reality is that even though I'm totally kicking ass daily, I'm still left with a mountain of "to dos" at the end of the day. I'm starting to think I'm getting too old to take on as much as I normally have. But 28 is too young to start slowing down, right? See, this is where my brain is at currently. All over the place.
So how about this outfit, eh? (I've been watching a lot of "Highway Through Hell" so I keep catching myself saying "eh?" because their Canadian accents are so awesome) This dress is from Dolly and Dotty and it reminds me so much of those blue patterned china dishes. Isn't that pattern called "Willow" or am I making that up? Anyway, I love this dress. It's a full size or more too big, so it's really baggy and loose in the waist (I didn't know what size to get), but I love it so much and the fabric feels so light and airy. I'm thinking about just taking it in to be altered because it's a definite keeper! For the meantime I just tied up this long yellow draped cardigan that I scored from Stitch Fix right before Linden was born. It's super thin so it's great for Spring and Summer. I had never tied it up before, but I really needed something to take in the dress and this looked way better than a belt haha! And while it's probably totally dumb, I have a theory about yellow cardigans. For some reason, if I'm feeling kind of nervous or anxious about something, or I just need a boost of confidence, I reach for a yellow cardigan. It wasn't until I finished all of my doula trainings that I realized I wore a yellow cardigan to every. single. one. haha! And of course I paired everything with my Steve Madden sandals and Rebecca Minkoff bag. Oh! These sunglasses! Are these not totally rad?
Today I'm putting my mile-long to do list on the back burner and heading to an agency meeting and belly binding workshop in Nashville. I always look forward to our agency meetings because I swear I work with the most fabulous gals, and it's more like hanging out than it is working. Of course I have to hightail it back to town as quickly as I can in order to make it to Toby's first baseball game of the season! Now that's he's in an older division (7-8 league) his games aren't until 7pm, and that's Linden's bedtime... To say that things get crazy on baseball nights is an understatement. We're doing good if the kids are tucked in by 9:30... heaven help me!
Anyway, I'm kind of sort of getting into Snapchat lately. I knoooooooooow. Just another thing for me to annoy everyone on ha! but if you want to add me, go for it! I'm 'kaelahbee' as always!
