Janelle In Real Life: my two peas, a curling story, and stripes (duh).

4.27.2015

my two peas, a curling story, and stripes (duh).

Tunic tops and leggings were my go-to during pregnancy, and look! Nothing's changed.







top- called to surf // leggings- nordstrom // booties- old navy // necklaces- elm avenue & the shine project

It feels a little more lazy since I don't have the excuse of being pregnant, but who in the world even cares. Another thing that I should mention? This is the third fashion post in a row in which I am wearing a striped top. Some of you are probably suuuuper bored of that, so sorry! I've been trying really hard to just document my outfits when I'm able to, and I apparently have been wearing lots and lots of striped things. But really, who doesn't like a striped top?!
And let's talk for a minute here about how I actually forgot how to curl my hair for a couple months. Is that the weirdest thing ever? I've had this way of curling my hair with a straightener that I've literally been doing for years. It's my favorite hairstyle. For some crazy reason, one day I forgot the trick to making it work with my hair (having my hair all different lengths for the last year didn't really help). For several months, every time I tried to curl my hair it just looked weird and not right. So frustrating, my friends! One week I was so determined to figure it out again and I curled my hair every day a different way so I could get my technique back (I know hair gurus around the world are cringing at the fact that I took a straightener to my hair every day which is a great way to fry your hair off) and I finally remembered how I used to do it! So now when you see me with my hair curled you can think of those painstaking months I endured of badly curled hair.
Aaaaanyway, lets move past the hair rambling.
I am settling in (finally) to being a mom of two, and it's a crazy, wonderful experience. I loooove seeing my boys together. Nathan always watches Carson when he's being crazy and gives him cute baby smiles. Carson gives Nate kisses and pets his belly saying "Heh-woh baby!" They are two little peas in a pod. The hardest part for me right now is that we've more or less settled into a schedule in which I have no time to myself. As soon as one kid goes down for a nap, the other wakes up! And when they're both awake, they both want all of my attention. But we're making it work! I'm thinking of posting a little "day in the life" for us incase any of you are interested in the day to day.
I hope you're all having a fun and fabulous day!
