I fully intended to brave some outside photos today, but then two things happened that got in the way.
Number one, I went to Lowe’s this morning for some new hardware for the boys dresser and came home with a Swiffer Wet Jet. Then I proceeded to happily spent a chunk of my afternoon mopping my floors. Key word is happily. I’m pretty darn good about sweeping my kitchen floor every day (I really have no choice with all the crumbs that make their way down there), but mopping is something I rarely do because I loathe it. Dirty water in the sink? Wet, sticky floors for thirty minutes afterward, or having to go back with a cloth and dry it by hand? Yeah, it just doesn’t happen. But with that new fancy tool it was all done and sparkling clean in minutes — and then I just threw away that nasty disposable cloth. Best purchase ever.
Oh, and number two, Peanut refused to take a nap. As in, sobbing uncontrollably for fifteen minutes straight until I came in, and at which point he said, “Mom, I’m all done sleeping.” followed by, “I had a great nap!” After rocking in the rocking chair, singing songs, bribing, and threatening, there was nothing to be done except hand him a stack of books and tell him it was quiet time for the next hour (at least). I’m praying this is a one time thing and that he’ll continue to happily take two hours naps until he’s five. Or else I might die.
So yes, no outside outfit pictures.
I just recently discovered a new online clothing store called Sway Chic. They have several locations in California, but have just started their online store, and kindly let me try out a few of their pieces. Of course with my expanding waistline I opted for the maxi skirt, and despite the low price point, their fabric is great quality, and the skirt itself is really well made. Same with the necklace — inexpensive, but quality materials. It doesn’t feel like it’s going to fall apart at any moment. I’m really impressed. They have tons of great stuff on their website, so you should go check them out!
