Things I do not love about this time of year:
Allergies
kids being out of school so all the parks are PACKED
.....but mostly allergies.

You guys, it's getting ridiculous. I've dealt with allergies most of my life. I'm allergic to cats and when I was a kid I would swell up and get all itchy if I was anywhere near where a cat had been in the last several weeks... that actually still happens. But I've just learned to avoid cats (and the houses of people who have cats). No biggie. Unfortunately I'm also allergic to pollen and the pollen count in Utah right now is ridiculously high. I literally can't even go outside to get the mail without getting itchy and needing to blow my nose. My poor kid loooooves being outside, so I'll usually suffer for a while and take him to the park or just to play outside our house on the grass, but after 30 minutes it gets hard for me to function because I'm swelling and my eyes are watering and itchy, and my nose is itchy and leaking and generally feeling miserable. The pollen can go ahead and get the H outta here anytime now, I'm so done with it.

Hope you guys are all having a great week so far and not suffering from awful allergies!

Also, I need to announce the winner of the Freshly Picked giveaway!


Congrats Tina!! If you weren't the winner doooon't worry, there are a couple more awesome giveaways coming your way in the near future :)

    1. Thanks for the sympathy :) And it's more my son throwing a fit if we don't go outside than me being such a nice mom haha. I'm hoping it goes away soon as well!

  7. Love that color of green, I feel like it's kind of an unusual tone/hue for fashion but I dig it. Green is one of my favorite colors actually. But I also like the way you styled it too.
