 What I wore yesterday... Not on the snow but we did have crazy winds during the day and pouring rain at night...

Inspiration from Pinterest:

 Beret, Sweater - Forever 21
Pants - Nordsrom Rack
Boots - Hunter

The kids were off school so they had swim practice in the morning and my daughter and I went to her first girl scout cookie sale booth while leaving my son at a playdate...
During the crazy winds the girls hardly sold any cookies but what can you do.
We rested at home a bit then all together went to see the Harlem Globetrotters!
It was a blast although a very late (and wet) night...

Don't make me blush

 What I wore Wednesday...

Inspired by this Pinterest Post:

I loved how this all came together. I got these pants from Boden clearance thinking they would be bright pink like the inspiration but they are more of a faded rose colored.. But they still go great especially in this outfit...

Doubled these two great finds from F21 for a cool pearly chic effect...

And these flats were just the perfect touch of navy and gold and pattern...

This jacket is ridiculous old and was waiting her turn to be worn for years in my son's closet... I love the fur trim and channel like look and style...

Jacket - TJ Maxx
Tee & Flats - J Crew
Pants - Boden USA
Necklaces - Forever 21
Purse - Michael Kors
Sunglasses - Kate Spade

Be My Valentine

 What I wore on Tuesday ( Valentine's Day )....

Inspiration from Pinterest:

I love this because it is funky with kick flared jeans and white booties and pearls over plaid shirt...

Coat, Shirt, Jeans - Forever 21
Necklace - Bauble Bar
Booties - Zara
Sunglasses - Crap eyewear
Belt - Cabi

Well, when you have kids the Valentine's become a family event and a fancy romantic restaurant is replaced by a kid friendly chain that is convenient to the kids activities...

So here we are at Red Robin after ice skating and swim practices...

Snow Bound

 What I wore last Friday as we headed to Big Bear for a weekend of snow and skiing....


This was a perfect travel outfit. Comfy and cozy for a long ride...

Sweater, beret - Forever 21
Leggings - Cotton On
Boots - Target
Scarf - Hand made (gift from a family friend)

It was a crazy morning of running around packing and getting ready for the weekend.
My hubby couldn't join us due to tax season so I was going solo with the kids (and our group). Then my friend's husband got sick so she joined me for a carpool and we partnered as we managed the weekend with 2 kids each and no husbands!
Took turns driving up the mini van loaded with 4 kids and packed to the rim.
As we got to their school to pull them out early we found my daughter in the nurse's office sick!
Not a great way to start the weekend.
We got her all cozy in the 3rd row with pillows and blanket and she slept most of the ride up...
Then when we got to the mountain to pick up our cabin key my friend's daughter threw up!
Now we were very afraid as to how this was all going to turn out.
My daughter was truly out of it as she wanted to do nothing with snow when we arrived and just crashed on the bed so they all went out to dinner while I stayed with her and she threw up too!!

Amazingly though the next morning she woke up totally fine and skiied all day and had a blast.
We were so happy for the turnaround.
And the kids never wanted to be pulled out of ski school since they got to cut the long lines my friend and I skiied all day picking chairs with no lines and sometimes pushing our limit to the max... :)

The next morning the kids all played in the snow in the back yard of the cabin we rented for hours and we fed them lunch and changed them before heading back to San Diego...

When we first arrived at the cabin Friday afternoon:
 You can tell my daughter is so pale and not happy...


These guys are ready for ski school...

 Gorgeous view on top of this chair lift....

KIDS pass the time early morning playing on their ipads and hanging out:

We are enjoying the pretty view after packing:

 Kids have a blast playing in the cabin's backyard late morning on Sunday...
