What I Wore Wednesday {Holidays are Here.}

I haven't posted on the blog in ages. I  feel a new years resolution.  Ha.  But. Yes, it's the holidays. We all survived Thanksgiving.  I didn't even have to cook the bird. Probably why I had the energy and desire to decorate not one,  but 3 christmas trees throughout the house. The holidays are officially here.

What I Wore Wednesday

Good Morning.  Just another hot morning here in NC. Rushing 2 of the littles off on the bus.  Iced coffee in hand.  Cody has a dentist appointment to hopefully get his space maintainer out. He had a tooth pop in fast. 

Tonight, baseball. Of course.

Even the cup is target & the flip flops. Seriously target style today. Haha.

What I Wore Wednesday

Haven't blogged a WIWW in a few weeks. Finally had a minute this morning and  Emma had fun taking pictures too.

You might not think to shop for clothes at Gander Mountain,  but what else would I look at in there? Ha. Found this outfit for under $20. Can't beat that!

What I Wore Wednesday {Back to School & Work}

Yes. After 3 1/2 weeks off of school I am ready, not sure that the littles are ready, all groggy and mopey. But. I am so ready. We all had tons of fun, staying up late. Movies out & Movies in. Dinners out. Grilling. Gardening. A visit with the great grandparents.  Bike rides & hikes. A vacation to Asheville.  Lots of baseball. Yes. I believe we did it to the max this track out. Seven weeks till grades end and only 9 weeks till we have a middle school-er in the house. Woot.

Here is a peek at our last 3 1/2 weeks & at the bottom is today's outfit.  #wiww

What I Wore Wednesday {Jacks Birthday Party}

Busy times here. Lots of baking and creating. ♡  Jack is turning the big 10.  It's a rainy day, perfect  for baking.  Currently I am melting chocolate for lego candies. Eek. I already did lego crayons.

What I am wearing? A maxi skirt made by me and an old navy tank in pink. The sweater is also from old navy.

Happy Wednesday.

What I Wore Wednesday

Good Morning. Just another Wednesday.  I got a new top & flip flops. But just fyi the flip flops suck. They are size 8, and they fit like a 7. I should of teturned, but don't like to mess around with shipping returns.     The top is a good fit & comfy, but I don't dare dry it in fear it will shrink. I never buy from gap. But they had an awesome online deal & plus the ebates rewards. However,  even the pants I bought the boys are crazy small compared to purchasing the same size at Old Navy or Target.  I will need to keep this in mind, order a size or 2 up.

What I Wore Wednesday

My little Emma has been itching to spend Birthday money. And we have had a few Birthday gifts we had to purchase,  so we went to Charming Charlies. I  love the style, but especially the prices!  While we were browsing I spotted the clearance rack of women's tops! I love the "slinky" material of this shirt. Only $14 too. The length is fabulous and the  scoop of the neck is perfect.  I've already worn it twice since I bought it, it will surely be a go to shirt in my closet.

Its bunny season up in here.  And the typical camera bag production line happening.  I had the dreadful wisdom teeth extraction done.  Yay to that shit being done & over with.  Finally, almost 3 weeks later I feel GOOD.  However, I started today off with a freakin' headache.  Don't worry, I killed it with coffee, sunshine, a cold cloth, and a hard candy in my cheek while at the bus stop. Feeling a bit dressed down today.  But I am not going anywhere, just me in the machine, all day.  Anyways, finally back to the machine. Planning to be super productive today.

What I Wore Wednesday {}

It's been warm & sunny here the last couple of days. Loving that I was able to rock the flats and such. But today. Another story. It's 37°. Brrr.  And the sun forgot to come up. 

Mr. L  headed North this morning.  I do hope he stays inside as much as possible with lows in the single digits. And highs in the 20s. Ugh.

What I Wore Wednesday {Keeping Warm}

Did you all know that I hate cold. And winter. And being cold.  11° tonight. I can't handle this. I moved to NC to escape that number.  Ugh. I suppose just knowing it will be back to 50 by the weekend makes me feel a bit better about it.  Not really.  I hate cold.

I've been busy starting the new year off with a skirt sale & creating super cute monkeys for Valentines Day. ♡

I was Homeschooled. But I won't Homeschool my kids.

Yea, I said it.  Homeschooled.  But it was only for the last 3 years of high school.  I was not bullied.  I had friends.  I had a job. And most importantly, I didn't drop out.  I was always mature for my age, or so my family would tell me.  I started babysitting at the young age of 10.  {I can't even imagine my 10 year old babysitting.}  I moved on to a job at a nursery, the kind with plants, not the babies.  And I still would babysit kids in town.  I made money.  I had my high school done & over a year before I was set to graduate.  I got married on my 18th Birthday.  I joined Quixtar on my 18th Birthday. 

I was brainwashed by the Christian/Quixtar/Republican clan from the ripe age of 13 and up that it was the thing to do.  Education is not necessary.   But don't even get me started on that.

I always wanted to be a mom.  I was excited to find out that I would be a mom after only being married for a few months.  I grew up so much after having kids.   My mind set was completely different.  I wanted to keep them home with me all day & protect them from all the awful shit in this world.  But I can't.  I won't.  Life is happening all around us.  Make the best of it, by the way. 

As the dawn of kindergarten came, I put my children in public school.  {Ugh. You know I hate that word. Its just school! - Don't say it like that.}  They love it.  They fit in.  I did once consider keeping them home in a bubble.  Like I said, I wanted to protect them from the world.  But I didn't.  I am not.  I won't.  They are learning. Learning so much, they are the smartest kids in their classes.  In the enrichment programs that *gasp* public schools have & offer.

I have zero confidence I would have them in the same position educationally and certainly not socially, had they stayed home in the bubble.  I want the best for my kids.  I want them to learn & experience everything they can & want.  My 10 year old is so excited to one day go to college. NC State to be exact.  And play baseball.  I never had that dream.   But I have that dream for him.  {No, I am not living vicariously through him!}

I'll let you know how they turn out.
