Wind Swept

 Starting slowly back into my active life... No time this morning for a photo shoot so my friend snapped these at the skate park we took the kids to... Here is where the inspiration came from:

Coat/Jacket - 'Maggie' in citrus by Kika Paprika
Tee - J Crew
Pants, necklace - Forever 21
Sandals - TJ Maxx

Another Busy Day:
Met my friend with her kids at the skateboard park so my son can try out the new skateboard he got for his b-day. But being the type he is who expects things to just come easy he got frustrated when he couldn't just ride it right away. At least they did have a good time playing together. Then we went over to my mom's for lunch and to drop off my daughter.  Met my husband and took my son to his one on one kindergarten interview. Then had to take him to my dentist appointment since there was no time. Followed by a quick trip to target to shop for a b-day present for his special friend then dinner at Mom's and back at home with both kids.

I am Alive!

HI! I am Alive! Sorry for the long absence.
I have been soooo sick during one of the busiest weekends of our lives so it has not been a great combination. I am finally starting feel remotely normal so decided to start slow and picked a very casual outfit for today...

The inspiration was from the May 2011 issue of People Style watch!

Either all the pieces I picked today are weirdly baggy or I lost some weight during my strep throat period cause everything felt super loose. My shoes and hat still fit so good to know my feed and head are the same size still! :)

Denim Shirt - J Crew
Tee, Pants, Hat and boots - Forever 21
Sunglasses - House of Harlow

Well, I woke up with severe pain in my throat Friday morning on the 5th birthday of son as we had planned to go to Disneyland.  Afraid to break my little man's heart I just went with it. It was awful I was in so much pain and all I wanted to do was curl up in a bed and yet we walked for miles in the heat in an amusement park. Not the happiest place on earth when you are sick as a dog I have to say.
My hubby was a champ taking most of the load on himself. We, well I, lasted until 5 PM then headed home in awful traffic to add...

The next day I crashed as my hubby took the kids for the
Pre School talent show and graduation ceremony! I was so sad to miss it but I couldn't even move. My friends who were so sweet took photos though and sent them to me...

But I still had to work Saturday night cause I knew I would never re-schedule it. I managed with taking two dayquils back to back to endure it then crashed again.
You would think I would have a break on Sunday but no can do since that was the day we hosted a birthday pool party for my son for 49 people!!!!

You know just a small gathering! :)

 Look how awful I look. No make-up, hair not brushed. Wearing jeans and a hoodie. I didn't even have to tell my friends I was sick. The fact that I was not dressed on my son's b-day they knew I had to be very very sick! :)

But look how happy my little guy is!? 

So most people when they are sick spend a few days curled up in a bed in PJs until they get better. As you can see from the photos above that was not the case for me!!!
