Hey, CM readers! This is an outfit I wore out before I left for army. We met up with my cute sis-in-law and her now hubs at Macy’s. They were playing house with the magic registry gun. Anyone remember how fun that was? I think my husband successfully registered us for everything in kitchen ware – my chef! We stole away from kitchen ware to the furniture section to grab these photos. It’s a fun game of hurry-and-try-to-take-a-photo-before-someone-sees…stage fright. But hey, fabulous wall, right? 😉

We also had a birthday dinner that night for my brother-in-law and I wanted to dress up and to cut down on standing in front of my closet for an hour trying on 298374 different outfits again, I just changed out the bottoms and shoes. Afterwards, my parents watched Grey while some of us went to my BIL’s friends’ band play for their 10th(!!!!!) anniversary. It was so loud and late and I felt so old, butbutbut….we did young people stuff!!!11
(And, yes, I totally copied the fabulous Sydney’s outfit.)
P.S.. If you missed it, there’s a giveaway going on right now for a colorful short-sleeve maxi dress HERE!
But this shows that he forgave me, right? <3
I wore this casual get-up a couple weekends ago when we had a sleepover at my in-laws’ house. We go there a few times each month and sometimes stay the night because it’s our second home…and they have a pool…and stocked fridge and pantry…and cable. It’s like, why did we leave again?? (To backtrack, we lived with them for a few months earlier this year while I was recovering from a C-section and so we’d have more time finding an apartment for our new family of tres.)
K, moving on to the newest addition to my closet….these straight leg jeans. My very first pair. I’m calling them The New Boyfriend Jeans. They’re just as comfy but with a more fitted leg, so it doesn’t look like you’re actually wearing your boyfriend’s jeans. And they’re kind of my favorite right now and forever.

Oh, and here are some pics of my baby in a hat because I couldn’t get enough of him on my Insta. <3
And some more. Story: My father-in-law thrifted this tiny armchair and bought it for Grey!! It’s the perfect size for him to lounge and watch his Saturday morning cartoons once a month and demand his milk. Please tell me I’m not the only one who sees a future teenage Grey.. Someone stop time!!!! :(:( I’m not ready.
For my birthday this year, I got a giggling phone call from my brother asking my size and then this top came in the mail a few weeks later. My family is a mixed bag of laughter/concern/pride in my joining the army. Admittedly, I was never planning on having an army print in my wardrobe (aside from my standard uniform). So this top presented itself as a challenge. My closet might have ended up all over the floor before I could figure out what to wear it with… Anyone else get those occasional clothing gifts that stump your fashion sense??
Grizz, the ever growing 10-week-old bullmastiff, was over on the other side of the yard doing what he does best (going to the bathroom) when he decided to join in the photo fest. So to those of you who love puppies, you’re welcome. Now you can stare at his cute face instead of studying the transparency of this skirt. And to those of you who don’t love puppies, I’m sorry. That must be a very sad existence.
