I didn't know I was lost

 Today's combo was inspired by 'Fashion Diva Design' blog: 

Simple and somewhat old school combo. I didn't have a dress so I paired a black (sheer and should have worn black undergarments I realized with the flash) top and a skirt….

This very eye catching wooden necklace was a 'Thread Show' purchase from years ago...

Top, Skirt, Belt - Forever 21
Boots - Shoedazzle

I was desperately trying to finish up the paperwork and paying bills and following up on phone calls with appointments when I realized it was too late to go to school. So we ran errands and had lunch then picked up my son and came home to meet my friend to have a long playdate and catch-up.
The whole gang went to my son's swim practice to watch him.
My daughter created an 'Easter Wonderland' in our living room which consisted of laying out every single pillow and pages of her drawings all over the living room to create a path. Then she hid who knows how old left over candy she found in plastic eggs and scattered them. She is so creative and I try so hard to not give in to my anal self that was just dying to clean it all up.
Had a nice dinner and forced a movie onto the older boys just to get them to sit down. My son who never sat down, swam over 500 yards then came home and played football with his friend and my step dad. I don't know how he doesn't collapse. He did eat the same dinner portion as the dad's though! :)

Step Up To The Plate

 Today's athletic chic combo was inspired by the 'Who What Wear' site:
 I love this mixing sporty tee with sneakers and a blazer. Except none of my sneakers really worked so I went with the fashion sneakers instead and instead of the blazer went with a knit moto jacket...

Knit Moto Jacket - Vintage
Tee - from U.S. Open (present from Hubby)
Jeans - Forever 21
Sneakers - Sketchers
Purse - Steve Madden
Watch - TJ Maxx
Sunglasses - Betsey Johnson

Went to the outdoor class which was a combination of a guided nature hike and easter egg hunt. So we couldn't do pretty dresses due to the hike. And we found out they removed the playground from the area we always met so didn't stay long.
Went to the City building to obtain a copy of my marriage certificate. I am trying to update my Turkish ID and apparently neglected to notify them that I got divorced and re-married! So need all sorts of docs now and pages of forms to fill out. Spent the afternoon getting that stuff ready.
Then picked up my son and we did a bit of legos with my daughter and homework with him then got them showered. But during this time I had changed into workout clothes so I can exercise as soon as they go to bed. But my son came down from his shower wearing workout clothes and said he wants to exercise with me before dinner. I didn't have the heart to say no so we did a T-25 workout with Shaun T! He hung in there occasionally commenting 'this is pretty hard mommy'.
It was so cute that he kept going the full workout. Like this kid needed to exercise (he never sits down)!
I served them dinner and went up to shower myself then got them to bed and ate after they went to bed.

With her Teacher...

 Today's outfit was inspired by People Style Watch February 2014 issue:

 I fell in love with the fedora and got it...

Had our preschool class today, then came home for a very quick lunch and went out so I can get the stupid gel manicure removed. I read online that you wrap your fingers with cotton balls and nail polish remover but I have that 'acetone free' nail polish remover so after soaking for 10 minutes nothing happened. They removed it and filed and cleaned and put new polish on for $5 so it wasn't bad. My daughter is kind of used to going there now and does not cause as much trouble as she used to.
Then we went to pick up my son and came home so he can play for a little then do homework then we were back out again for swim practice. This time dropped him off and ran to the library to return some books that were due today and went back to pick him up.
Started the nutrition plan but doing a different meal plan this week and it has hardly any carbs and a little too hard for me. I snuck in a few extra snacks because of it.
Did a workout at night though and ah I need to get back into it.
