Pink and Green Thursday

As I was sitting and reading a few blogs this morning (as this is my nice and slow morning) I saw that
Kori from Blonde Episodes was participating in a Pink and Green Thursday event hosted by Trish from Pink Preppy Lilly Lover.

 I hadn't picked what I was going to wear yet and when I saw one of the photos in Kori's post (seebelow) I was immediately inspired for today's outfit.

I could have worn a button up as well but I might go shopping tonight to check out H&Ms new collection and I wanted a top that is easy to take off and on so a white tee is what I went with.

Notice my purple and green nails I did the other night. They are already coming off of course... 

I wanted to add a green accessory on top to pull the shoes. This is part of a long necklace set I got from a street fair in Turkey last year. I doubled it up for this look. It is made out of silk and crochet balls.

These plastic green ballet flats were a $9 purchase from the summer town bazaar again in Turkey. Although they felt quite tight this morning for some reason. Might switch to my green beaded flip flops instead...
I think this is the first time I am wearing my 'summer fedora' which was an early spring purchase from F21.

I do love the combination of sugar pink and grass green... 
No workers today in the yard hence my photo shoot in the rubble!

Today's Activities: We are in a bit of a construction dilemma. The pool company we were ready to go with started flaking in their communication and made a few mistakes and never apologized so we feel very uncomfortable signing with them. But, of course the demo is done now and we need the pool people to start asap. So, I lined up another company to come and provide a full bid this morning. Will decide this afternoon and hopefully have one of them start on Friday. This week is going to be busy with getting other bids from electricians and sprinkler/landscape people. We need everyone lined up and done before they pour the new concrete.

The plans for today is swim class followed by lunch and naps at home. Meeting a landscaper in the afternoon at home to get a bid. Then hoping to either exercise or do something with the kids then hitting the mall to check out H&M. We'll see how it all pans out.
Posting early to take advantage of the down time I have right now...

Here is the demo'd concerete look...
