my outfit: bubbles!

My husband is endlessly sweet... Saturday afternoon he grabbed the camera and some bubbles that the kids got for Easter (by the way, these 'bubble wands' that are at all of the stores are AMAZING, they blow the best bubbles ever!!!) and we all proceeded to have a bubble party/blog photo shoot.  Fun was had by all.

Some days I find it endlessly challenging to balance my 'mom' duties with my 'blogging' duties... but other days - not so much!  Speaking of being a mom and a blogger... the other day my six year old asked if all moms had blogs.  What a sweet heart!  Bless his little self.  I bet he just wanted to know if all moms were as crazy as me... as in... 'lunch will be in a few minutes... I just have to do ONE more thing to do...".

I'm single-handedly going to bring back the sweater-over-the-shoulders look.  Are you in? It's the spring version of a scarf... perfectly warm and a little pop of color!

On a side note... do you ever hop out of the shower on a Saturday morning and gaze longingly at your cozy bed? Then decide to just lay down for a minute? Then wake up three hours later with your wet (or not so wet) hair still in the towel? If you answered yes to all these questions - then this hair do is for you.  Uncombed, un-producted, half wet and defying the odds of gravity.  Hypothetically speaking, of course.

I totally did that hair yesterday...minus the nap. I swear it just takes me way too long to dry my monstrously thick hair every day...and it seems like the phone always rings while it's wet and by the time I finish my conversation, I've given up on the hair. I wish mine looked as good as yours, though.

I love the sweater-over-the-shoulder look. I'll be bringing it back too!

Cassie Lee said...

Great look--I think the sweater over the shoulders is so preppy! Gotta love it.

Oh, what a cute lil' bun you have going on. I wish I could hop back in bed like that most days :)

Haha! I feel back asleep after the alarm went off this morning and my husband woke me in the middle of a dream. Thankfully he brought me coffee!
I love easy hair styles and it always amazed me how well my hair can cooperate when damp. Wet=tangles. Dry=tangles. Damp= perfection!!

Oh, and I love that your kiddo wanted to know if all mommies have blogs! That's the cutest thing I've heard in a long time! :)

Happy Tuesday!!

What a cutie! I for sure will be a mom who blogs! :D


P.S: I´m having a beautiful jewelry giveaway, I´d love for you to come by! :)

Jackie said...

So cute! And your hair looks great for being wet and after a nap. My hair would not be pretty after that scenario!
