Housewarming party


Top: Target
Jeans: Target
Shoes: Kohls
Earrings: Erin Gallagher Jewelry
Necklace: Stella & Dot

I was headed to my sisters housewarming party this day and needed a cute and causal outfit for the occasion. I went with this mustard top because I was feeling blah and how can you feel blah in yellow?! It definitely did the trick! I paired it with a dark jean and a brown sandal. I decided to go with gold jewelry because I thought it played off the yellow nicely.

Sorry for the lack of post yesterday. My son had his surgery and he did great! I have a new found respect for all mothers that have children that need surgery. It was hands down one of the hardest days of my life. Now we're dealing with around the clock meds and gross things I won't even tell you about. (your welcome!)
The next 24 hours will be the worst I hear, then 2 weeks of around the house recovery followed by 2 more weeks until full recovery. I've slept about 7 hours in the past 3 days and I'm very much looking forward to Friday when we can space the meds out more then every 3 hours! Until then everyone send me caffeine thoughts! Since it's not okay for pregnant women to be chugging coffee all day long (which is really what I need at this point) maybe caffeine thoughts will help?! haaa It's worth a try right? ;)

You are seriously adorable! I'm so sorry that your son had to have surgery. So hard for mom, I'm sure. If the least I can do is send caffeine thoughts, then I'm sending a venti Starbuck's your way:) I caved and had one coffee a day at the end of my pregnancy- I was just so exhausted!

Kaitlyn, you can for sure borrow it! Accessories swap?! LOVE that idea!

Megan, Thank you!!! and 1 coffee is not caving! That's the limit they give you that will not transfer to the baby. It's wanting 10 that is the problem. I haven't had more then 1 in any give day this pregnancy, but even 1 is not helping! Thank you so much for the venti thoughts! I feel better already! ;)

I am glad to hear the surgery went well, hope he gets well soon!! Try drinking some green tea for a bit of extra energy, but you guys will make it through :)

Actually doing much better! My hubby made some calls from work and help is on the way. I get 2 hours off to nap at 1:30! woo hoo!
Sometime moms need help too! ;)
