Last weekend, Hubby and I had a day date at Prairiefire, one of my favorite destinations in Kansas City. Before kids, I never embraced the day date… but now, it’s much easier to get someone to watch the kids during the day [when the sitter doesn’t have to deal with bedtime]. So, day date it is! And after the movie [that my husband picked!], I pulled him into Threshing Bee, a fun local boutique, to check out some jewelry [that I picked]. Read on to see the fun monochrome Kendra Scott jewelry look I selected!
It’s no secret that I love monochrome style for myself and my littles. I’m even getting my husband on board. Some people think you can’t wear black and white for spring, but let’s be honest: those people are wrong. Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite monochrome looks for spring: white denim paired with a black halter top.
So I feel a little weird posting about a sweater, jeans, and boots in April. But we have a never-ending winter going on here on Kansas City, so I’m sharing some never-ending winter fashion. I really, really, REALLY hope the weather warms up soon…. until then, enjoy this brown sweater and ripped denim look. And some hot chocolate. And some fires in the fireplace. Can you tell I’m trying really hard to make the best of this never-ending cold?
A few days/weeks/months ago [who knows, because I’m terrible at keeping track of time], I published a post called Day in the Life of a Stay-at-Home Mom of 2. Since then, it’s been my most-viewed post. It’s made the rounds on social media, and I’ve received feedback–publicly and privately–basically saying that I don’t measure up as a mom. That I don’t clean enough. I don’t cook enough. I don’t whatever enough. Well, I’m not a super mom… and I don’t care.
If you’ve been reading here any length of time, I’m sure you’ve figured out that I’m far from a gourmet chef. But, I have two little ones who depend on me to prepare meals everyday, so I’ve figured out a few reliable meals for kids. Here are some of my tried-and-true lunch ideas for preschooler and baby!
