I see you seem to side with Democrats...would you consider yourself one? I normally never discuss politics because it generally turns ugly...but yes, I am a registered Democrat! I think I may be the only one in my family...HA!

Looks I love: Vegas Edition

Friday, July 31, 2015

This post is inspired by

I have always wanted an excuse to branch out of my normal Mom outfits and dress up for a night on the town, completely out of my comfort zone. What place is better to do that than Vegas? Here is how I would transition my outfits from a morning by the pool, to an extravagant dinner in the evening and finally, a night out in Vegas. I still wanted to keep it simple, since that is my preference. Busy outfits are not my thing!

A morning by the pool
Dinner at Lago by the Bellagio fountains

A night out at the Voodoo Rooftop Nightclub

What would your take be? Would you venture out of your comfort zone as well? Follow @Vegascom on Twitter and the hashtag #UltimateVegasOutfit to see more!

That Moment When...

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

you wake up at 8:40am...
and your son has school at 9am
and the baby just pooped
and your husband has a meeting
and you make your husband stay home with the baby yet he has no idea what he's doing (love you)
and your son just wants to play with his new toy
and breakfast is a granola bar and hopes of a better tomorrow
and then theres a spider on your car door
and then you jump in through the passenger side because f that
and then your son requests to watch Morning Joe
and then he suggests we take the shortcut
and then there's traffic
and its 8:58am
and then you realize you are in your bathrobe
and you try and not be seen by any human or hell, even a bird
and then you find sunglasses
and you fist pump 
and then you pull into the parking lot
and then your son wants to do Super Man poses
and then you realize it is 8:59am and you don't want him to miss snack time
and your face looks like this
and you forget the password to get into the school
and then you get him inside his class
and then your sunglasses fall off revealing your true identity
and then you kiss your son goodbye
and run out the door
and chug your iced coffee.

How was your morning?

Tablescape Thursday

Thursday, July 23, 2015

New series on the blog! Y'all know I love a tablescape (different from table setting). The other day, I was browsing Pinterest when I discovered a GORGEOUS, AMAZING, COLORFUL, HEAVENLY (ok I'm done) tablescape that was decked out and all Patriotic. I smiled from ear to ear and had eyes larger than a lemur. Basically this:
Sorry for your eyes. And sorry for enlarging the picture. And sorry I'm so weird. But I was all "SWEET SASSAFRASS (??) THAT IS GORGEOUS!" So, here lies my favorite tablescape of the week, brought to you by Destiny over at Just Destiny Mag (yes, I realize the 4th is over, but I'm still all Murica up in here)
