Snow Day

This morning we woke up to a foot of snow!!!!!!!

My husband had to work today so the kids and I went to my parents house and worked on some of my thrift store mending. One of the items we worked on was a khaki trench coat I bought a couple weeks ago. The coat was terribly long which made it look awkward on me, so we hemmed it. Now that the coat is a good length I absolutely love it!
THANKS MOM (also thanks for stepping in as my photographer today)!!!

Spring Today, Winter Tomorrow

Today we enjoyed a beautiful spring day at the park (with a high in the 70s), but while I was getting dressed I received a text message from The Weather Channel saying we were under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY!!!! The first day of spring is this weekend, but we get to look forward to heavy rain showers that will be turning in to snow. WINTER YOU HAVE OVER STAYED YOUR WELCOME!!!

First Post


     as a wife, mom of two beautiful kids (Noah 23 months and Hannah 16 weeks), a house full of chores, and scheduling a few hours a week to instruct a cardio/weights class there leaves little time and money for fashion. After the birth of our son I lost all sense of fashion. I hated to get dressed because I never knew what to wear or how to wear it, plus I thought I was fat! That was two years ago. Since that time we have had a precious little girl and I feel that my personal style is starting to return.

     Growing up, my mom would have to drag me to a thrift store. I hated them! I was embarrassed when we went and hoped no one would see us! Now I drag her to thrift stores! It's like Cheers, everybody knows our names!!! I love how you can go to the same thrift store everyday for a week, but everyday you will see something new (my husband does not like this)! I love how you can buy more and spend less, again my husband doesn't like this. He says things like "you buy even more and spend the same amount," I don't see a problem with that!

     My goal for this blog is to post a few times a week to show that a girl can still look stylish, trendy, and unique on a limited budget and with limited time!
