What I wore - leggings??

So I was supposed to have written this post like a week ago, but then I had the mis placement of pictures due to my husband and then blogger decided to not work so here I am late late late in posting this but I am here.

yellow cardi- Melrose
red floral dress- Target
leggings- local boutique
flats- Maurice's
pearl rope necklace- my grandmothers!

dress- local boutique
shrug- Dillards
sandals- Kohls
Beautiful girl- All mine!!

shirt- Cato
Jeans- JC Penney

As you can see in the first picture I went waaaaayyyy outside my comfort zone and tried leggings! I didn't really like how I looked in them, they were comfy but I don't know maybe it was the color of them or the dress or just the outfit its self. Not sure but I will try again, because I found the entire section of them at Target!! These that I have were way too expensive and they snagged so basically they are expensive trash now!! oh well I did try and thats what Nina at Momma Go Round asked us to do!!

Where have I been?

Hello Blog land!!

I have been missing lately due to life! Sick kids, husband finishing up school, mom had neck and hand surgery, Mother's day etc etc etc...

I was all set to sit down last night and post some outfits from the previous week and I realize that my husband has dumped all my pictures on to a computer at school so he could use the camera for one of their training exercises!! So I have a few pics from my phone today and I will do better once I get my pictures back.

So, I have been feeling so BLAH lately- about everything.
I am just tired and so it effects my whole outlook on everything. First of all, my baby is sick- she has broken out in hives and we don't know from what (great!) and she also has some bronchial issues that are causing her to wheeze really badly. I hate hearing her cough and wheeze and see the spots its just so sad. BUT, she is fine- laughing, playing, no fever- its crazy. We started some medicine and bought a nebulizer and I really think its helping. Second, My husband is in the Police Academy so he is kinda stressed and has to study alot and I always worry that we are bothering him and when the baby wakes up at night I feel bad if it wakes him up because I know he needs to sleep. Third, my 5 yr old is going through a defiant stage, you know the one, tell her to stop and she does it one more time. I really can't stand when I pick her up and i have a teacher tell me all the things she did wrong, but they NEVER pull me aside and tell me when she is acting great! Note to teachers- parents like to hear good stuff too.
to continue my whining : my house is a wreck, each room is worse that the one I just left, my laundry is done but in piles to be put up all over the house, the girls rooms need to be cleaned (and de-cluttered) I need to have a garage sale so I can actually park my car in there. I haven't been counting my points like I should for WW, I am watching what I eat but not counting. I have been having alot of fat days so I hate all my clothes and I am regretting cutting my hair. I know I know debbie downer but I needed to vent!
