Women are meant to be loved, not to be understood

Friday's outfit for the Zoo Field Trip and the book club meeting at night was inspired by this photo in September, 2011 issue of People Style Watch:

 Jacket - H&M
Tee - J Crew
Jeans - Forever 21
Purse - Thread Show
Boots - Mia
Bracelets - C Wonder

It was a very full day.
2nd field trip to the zoo this week this time with my daughter's kinder class.
I was in charge of 2 other little girls besides mine and once again was reminded how much 'drama' little girls could have.
It was funny comparing to the field trip on Tuesday where I was in charge of boys who are super high energy and jumping all around but totally laid back with no drama.
Girls are interesting for sure…
It was so cute to watch their enthusiasm though. Even though they all have been to the zoo many times it was their first field trip with their kinder class so they were besides themselves. It was tiring though.
It is like at every point change you have to keep track of the kids under your care. It tires out your brain. Other parents that had less kids though were very helpful and we hung together and worked as a team
which helped.

Once we returned waited for the bell to ring and there was this usual friday afternoon impromptu play date requests under the pouring rain. At the end dropped off my daughter at her friend's house but took the brother of that little girl to our house to play with my son and then another little boy was dropped off. Short play date though cause he had swim practice during which I dropped off the other boys and picked up my daughter and came back home totally exhausted. BUT, was all ready for my book club outing with the ladies…
We met at the same bar as their happy hour and quiet setting suits us and it is close to most of our homes. We had a great discussion on the book we just finished ('Maude' by Donna Foley Mabry) then picked our next meeting date and book (Moody Bitches by Julie Holland)…

At the bar there was this sign that we loved….

  1. You certainly captured my attention with that header. I was curious where it came from and then saw the sign. Very amusing.

    And your observation on the differences between boys and girls fascinates me. It's why I never felt comfortable growing up with boys.

    Third, I like how you take inspiration from media and turn it into your own. That's transformative art. I'm trying something similar myself right now -- I'm doing an homage to "Mad Men" fashion on my blog. I've done two in a series and plan to put up a third tomorrow (honoring Joan).


Love to hear your thoughts...
