It’s Friday people! Honestly, this was a very long week. I don’t have big plans for this weekend except for attending my cousin’s wedding on Sunday afternoon. Saturday, I plan on sleeping in and going about my day in as relaxed a way as I possibly can. This is my second to last weekend off, before, Nate and I are back to working opposite shifts on Saturdays. Double this with the fact that he works Sunday mornings also, weekends aren’t easy for us if we want to see each other at all.

What are you doing this weekend? For those of you who have gone back to school to teach or learn, or have children in school how have the first days gone? Have you fell into your stride and figured out schedules and such? I’ve been writing out my lesson plans for the first week of classes, and now I need to come up with choreography for combos too. I love my job!

If you want to see real pictures taken in Narnia check out the shots Wyn took for my sister’s engagement pictures. I just was standing next to a lamppost. Honestly, I was happier about this outfit when I had a tan cami underneath, but that had a large stain on it before I took pictures. The black camisole is just too distracting, and the blouse was too low cut to do without.

I wore this simple summer outfit awhile ago, but haven’t gotten around to posting it. Nate and I went to take pictures, but as soon as we stepped outside the wind whipped around and the temperature dropped about ten degrees from what it as just ten minutes before. Instead of venturing out and using my dslr we opted to staying on the porch and snapping a couple quick iPhone pics.

I wore this outfit to my sister’s couple shower for her upcoming wedding. We ate delicious pizza from one if my favorite pizza places, played pool, and watched as the engaged couple opened gifts for their new home. All of the gifts were very practical, which helps when you are starting from scratch. I don’t know about you, but I always prefer to give the practical gifts. Gifts that I KNOW will get used. My gift was a laundry basket full of the towels they registered for. What are your favorite gifts to give The bride and groom?

Mossimo, Target, skirt, water color,

I still have a few more showers to attend, so I better get thinking of what else to get. I’m actually pretty excited about the wedding events still to come. As the Matron of Honor and sister of the bride I get honor of throwing the bachelorette party too! Since the bride and myself will be the only members of the bridal party of age I’ve decided to play a game instead of the more traditional party plans. We are heading downtown, but instead of bar crawling we will be playing assassins and must eliminate the rest of the group to win. After we’ve been “killed” we will meet back up at a designated coffee shop for appetizers and mingling until the game is over. Once the winner has been decided we will open the personal shower gifts then head out to dinner.

Mossimo, Target, skirt, water color,

I got this Mossimo skirt from Scout, and I must say I am thrilled with how well it camouflages baby spit up. Jazz’s tummy was bothering him and after a couple rounds and paper toweling off I still looked decent. Water color print is this mom’s best friend. Now to find more items with this print?!?!

I got this blouse for $1 at Goodwill while I was pregnant. I actually have two of them. One in this salmon color and one in tan. I picked them up, because, of there sheer breezy style. It was one hot summer, and not a time for a pregnant woman to be stifling herself in layers. I don’t think I ever posted pictures of me wearing either blouse while pregnant. Now is a better time than never. However, I am not crazy about the long tunic length now. To remedy this problem I knotted the front and tucked in the back. What do you think? Does it look ok? How else would you style this blouse?

Paisley print, wood bracelet, Lia Sophia, green ring

As for accessories, I went with brown and gold tones. The ring and wooden bangle are from Charlotte Russe and the gold bracelet is from Lia Sophia. Nothing too special, but I am making an effort to accessorize more. Last Friday Nate and I went to Omaha to buy him a suit for my sister’s wedding in July. After ordering his suit from Jos A Bank, and a round of Nate vs. Siri we went to Charming Charlie’s. I will admit that the store lived up to my expectations. Jazz loved looking at all of the pretties too. I ended up getting a pair of earrings and two rings. I know I’ll go back when we go to pick up his suit when it comes in around the beginning of May. I need to consult my sister to see what kind of jewelry it will be ok for me to wear in the wedding.
