Happy Birthday

Two of my three children have March birthdays so we've had a busy birthday week. Harriet turned 2 on the 17th and Tanna turned 5 on the 22nd. Just to make things more busy, on the 21st we had a pool party to celebrate them and their two cousins who also have March birthdays. 

I love birthdays and try to make the day special for them without going overboard.

Harriet got woken up with cupcakes and cookies for her 2 year old debut then finished the day with her favorite, meatloaf and mashed potatoes.

Tanna got to go see a movie with me. (Side note: Cinderella is a beautiful movie)  Then we finished off the day with breakfast for supper (Tanna's choice) and cake.

I can't believe how big these kids are getting!!! I love it and hate it at the same time. Here are pictures of our week.

What I Wear

I am by no means a fashionista. I'm a curvy, hippie, stay-at-home mom with an addiction to flannels and cardigans. In an effort to hold myself accountable, I'll be posting pictures of what I wear from time to time. Also, getting dressed each day makes me more productive and ready to go out on a whim. (*side note: I use the term "getting dressed" very loosely. Basically, it's de-slobbing myself to look like an adult human each day)

It's just a win, win. I feel better and look better. 

You may notice a few repeats. . In efforts to cut down in laundry and reduce water usage I've implemented an "only wash it if it's dirty" policy. 
Depending on my daily activities I am sometimes able to re-wear a shirt, sweater or pants 1 or 2 times. It's saving me laundry and wear and tear on clothing pieces. I'm not sure it'll work in hot, sweaty summer months but in the season of "lots of layers" here in the Northwoods it's working out nicely.

Here's what I wore last week:

(Yes, there are only 6 looks. One entire day was spent in PJ's. I'm a work in progress, people. Don't judge!!)

That's a wrap!!!
