Pattern Mixing

Today I attempted some pattern mixing with a black and white Amelia and some red and black leggings.  At work, a resident told me that my outfit "hurt his eyes".  So, maybe I have some work to do?

I posted this picture in my VIP group and the ladies overwhelming said it worked.  We'll see what more I come up with in the future! 

Passing Stuff On

After work this morning it was a "get all the things done" kind of day.  I completed a million little tasks around the house and I feel so much better!  One of those tasks was cleaning out my closet - again.  I keep getting rid of more and more clothes that aren't LuLaRoe.  I just don't see myself wearing any of those things ever again, even if I don't sell LuLaRoe forever.  One of these days I'm going to get rid of my jeans.

Today was a hang around the house kind of day.  And then we had a LulaRoe party at the house!  It was so much fun and amazing not to have to leave the house with all of the inventory.  Of course then we had more work of another kind...we had to shovel the driveway.  Ice had formed under the snow so it took a lot of extra work to clear. 

On the plus side, the house has pretty icicles!

So on Wednesday we were taking long walks in the spring sunshine...and today we woke up to a world covered in snow.  Despite school being cancelled and our road not being cleared well, we went out anyway!  As we were driving, I snapped a pic of one of my favorite little bits about our neighborhood:

Today I decided to try something I haven't done in a long time - putting a pair of studs in my second ear piercings!  I've had my ears double pierced since...I'm not sure, sometime in Junior High maybe.  But I haven't worn earrings in the second hole in at least a decade.  Randomly today I decided to try it with my tiniest of diamond studs (thanks college boyfriend, lol).

Today was a super fun day!  We spent the morning at home working on LuLaRoe stuff, and then we hit the road.  

The first stop was Ames!  We dropped off some LLR items for a customer, picked up some for me from a friend going out of business (a pink Amelia and a gorgeous elegant Carly!), traded some leggings, visited several friends, and got to talk to Fred, my former senior pastor when I worked in Ames.  Several of our errands had us walking up and down Main Street, which was wonderful as it was another beautiful day.  

Wear A Dress Tuesday #8

Today was unseasonably warm...I know global warming is bad...but sometimes a 60 degree day in February is really enjoyable.  To celebrate I went with my most spring-y looking Amelia - it's yellow and green with Gerber daisies - my favorite flower!  I heart this dress.

No Makeup Selfie

I've never been one to wear a lot of makeup.  Growing up as a dancer, makeup was always for the stage.  I was always annoyed by the amount of time it took to put on, and inevitably it would sweat off.  As I got older, I never got the appeal of putting makeup on every day - mostly because I'm too lazy to take it off every night.  

Oliver's 2nd Birthday!

Today our godson Oliver turned 2!  We took a quick day trip up to Minnesota to celebrate with pizza, cake and presents!  He is learning so much lately, every time we see him (once every other month or so) he knows so many new words.  My favorite thing is that the kids have taught him to call me Aunt Bunny.  It started as a joke with Grant, but I love the nickname and wanted it to stick - and it has!  Here are some pictures from the day. 

Amazing Pop-up Party!

Today I threw my first pop-up boutique with a hostess I didn't previously know.  I "met" Kristin through my online VIP group - she fast became a very good customer, and she was excited to host a pop-up when I asked.  Little did I know how awesome it would be!  Her house was adorably decorated, she had great food and drinks, and a whole ton of friends who came to shop!
