30 for 30: 13 & 14

See all my 30 for 30 posts here.

Accessories: wedding ring, necklace from my sister's wedding, thrifted belt

I apologize for the headless picture but I honestly don't think I have ever taken a worse picture in my life. I pulled it up on my computer and actually said out loud, "Sweet. merciful. love." I tried to salvage it by photoshopping out the dark circles and whatnot but there's only so much you can do with a puffy exhausted face. For that I would like to thank Baby 2 for waking up FOUR TIMES last night. I thought I had done a pretty good job with the concealer and stuff making myself look like not so much of a trainwreck but the mirror with the flattering bathroom lighting? It lies.

Anyway, this morning it was really quite cool at our house and I was like, "YAY! Boots! Layers!" And then we got to the park and it was like 15 degrees warmer and I overheated and died. It was very tragic.

Accessories: wedding ring, these earrings (with a blue stone)

After the horrific nature of the above picture I declared a serious do-over. I got my kids down for naps at the same time and took a real shower. It was technically my second shower of the day but this one involved shampoo and conditioner and a razor instead of my usual quick soap up, rinse off, and a shower cap to protect my hair because eh, it doesn't really need to be washed for another day or two, right?

After a big bottle of water, some ibuprofen and a cold washcloth the exhausted puffiness and headachiness ebbed a bit and I put on makeup and curled my hair and what do you know? I felt much more like my hot mama self instead of a punching bag and I made Aaron take me out to dinner. We had some Chipotle with the babies and the in-laws and it turned into a really lovely evening.

It's nice to know that at 2 in the afternoon you still have time to completely turn your day around.


  1. I really love this look! And the headless photo made me giggle...cute!

  2. There have been a few pictures I've had to chop my head off too due to horrible facial expressions.
    I love the layers in the first picture...I honestly don't know why I don't own any basic button down shirts!

  3. i like how it's the same cardigan and yet totally different looks ;)

    girl, you look graet in your photo what are you talking about?!? :D i dont lie.
