I wore this on Thursday.
Jenny from Spry on the Wall had inspired me to wear this sweater dress over cuffed jeans. I couldn't upload her photo for some reason and since I didn't save her post name couldn't find that either.
I bought these cute canvas coral heels for spring a while back from F21 of course. They have a low heel that I can handle with kids. They look great with ankle socks. For this look though I went barefeet and cuffed jeans.
The outfit needed something so added the two toned blue snood and some earings and bangles.
I still can't say I am comfortable with the short sleeve sweater idea. My arms were cold at times and when I wore a cardigan it felt too heavy. I made it work regardless, the sacrifices for fashion right?
Was doing the photo shoot on the front patio at first but the photos were too dark. These are the lightened versions so moved on inside after these two.
For once did not crop the photo so you can get a glimpse of my entry way. I designed these arched doors and then had them custom made in Mexico for a great great price. The clock that hangs on top (needs a battery the time is wrong) is made out of a real wine barrel and is super heavy. Ordered it from one of the wine magazines. I think between my last post and this photo you are probably getting an idea that I am also very into decorating.

Thursday's Activities: It is official I am having a tough time this week. My patience seems to run out so fast between the kids, lack of activities with other adults, backyard construction and car troubles...
My mom was nice enough to come this morning so she can give us a ride to the swim class that way I didn't have to leave at crack of dawn to take my husband to work and just let him take his own car. But of course at swim class when I called the shop I found out my car won't be ready until Friday at noon! That not only ruined my afternoon playdate plans of park and museum but also my wild animal park plans for the next day. I had to make bunch of calls and emails to re-work everything. This plus spending 20 minutes on the phone with the gas company to upgrade our meter and other contractors I was almost in tears. Seeing my dire shape my mom offerred to take the kids to her house. Knowing they didn't have their sleep stuff (music and satin and paci) I still said 'yes' as I was desperate for a break. Dropped them off at my mom's and took her car home.
Got caught up on more emails and more scheduling of contractors and baked cookies and headed back to her house.
Of course neither kid had napped and my daughter never ever skips a nap! My mom was also nice enough to host my two friends and their kids for a playdate since I couldn't join them at the park. Had to wait until my husband got there with the car so I had a ride. He had his friend pick him up from there and they went to the padres game. Me and the girls went to Target of all places for dinner. Yes we are pretty pathetic. After the dinner turned out to NOT be a fiasco we felt brave enough to even shop for half hour. You have to see our photo at the bottom as it is priceless.
Rushed back home and somehow got both kids in bed without much crying.
Here is the pool with the tile work completed!
They spent a lot of time on this spa wall tiles...
And here is the priceless Target photo!
