Janelle In Real Life: camo and a monsoon.

9.09.2013

camo and a monsoon.

Happy Monday, friends. My weekend was full of football watching, treat making, date having, baby wrangling, and general partying like that. We found a DE-lish Thai restaurant in our own little town, so that was a win. My child sort of made it through two hours of church... he missed a nap while we were there so he was sort of unpleasant the rest of the day. Being the good parents we are, we pretty much just gave him lots and lots of cheerios to keep him happy and quiet. That kid is a serious cheerio lover. Also, my baby is almost one?! He's gaining lots of independence and wants to do his own thing more and more. He'll push my face away if I've played with him too long like, "Mom, get outta here you're cramping my style."Whatevs little guy, you're just growing up too fast.

Here's my Saturday outfit, and let me just say husband was not totally on board with these pants. I love them anyway.




Where she got it: top: nordstrom (clearance) // vest: aeropostale // pants: express (half off!) // necklace: h&m
It basically monsooned here on Saturday which was actually kind of fun to watch from our window. We saw lightening strike RIGHT across the street from us in this empty field so, you know, that was sort of scary but also really cool. The weather has been so weird lately... I have no idea what season Utah thinks it is.

Also, we have the winner for the Forever 21 giveaway!


Congrats Renae, I'll be sending the gift card your way shortly!

  11. My husband is not always the biggest fan of my choices in clothes either! Men. Oh well, :P I try to wear things that we both like, but once in a while I'll definitely wear outfits just because I love them! I think you look great!
