|Husband pointed out that my ladies are out in full force today!|
I’ve been noticing that a lot of my posts lack jewellery and such. The reason is simple – I can’t wear those things with a young baby unless it’s when I’m headed right out the door to work or an audition. Around Baby it’s just impractical to wear earrings and necklaces unless I want them broken or, worse still, Baby choking on them. So, I have started counting on my wardrobe to fill in the missing pieces of interest. Patterns, and the mixing of those patterns has picked up the slack. I’m not huge on jewellery anyway. Usually it’s one large piece or two smaller pieces. So, I’m not missing it that much. But it’s sad when you get excited because you get to wear earrings!
Husband is headed out of town on a business trip, so Baby and I are headed to my Mom’s house. We’ll be chillin’ with my Mom and Babcia. Which means at some point I’m going to beat them at cards!

Today I was feeling a little ‘cool’ *and I use that term loosely when applied to me* So, I thought that it’d be appropriate to wear this relaxed jersey knit dress. I love the asymetrical hem and the slightly unfinished look it has. It feels wonderful on. I just wish it felt that wonderful to be outside taking these shots.
Hope you all had a great day. I’m retiring to a glass of delicious wine and some cuddles with Husband.
Good night. See you all tomorrow!
Hey guys, I don’t usually post something about another blog. In fact, I never do. But I stumbled across this fantastic lady and just had to share her blog with you. She’s a photographer and a mom of a little boy named Cash. Now Cash has some medical issues and spends a lot of time in and out of doctor’s offices. And these are the visual chronicles of this Mom’s journey.

|Me bundled up outside.|
I wore this dress with pants, which I know is a bit of a cop-out, but here me out. I was going out today – shopping, errands, etc – and since it’s still very cold outside I knew I’d be wearing my sporty coat for most of it. Now a sporty, puffy coat, though necessary, doesn’t look the best with a pretty dress; so, I wore the jeans because it looks better together on the outside. I love this little sweater dress for it’s softness, and the fact that it has polka dots. ‘Cause I love those! Notice how Drake the Dog has to be in every picture? I tell ya, he wants a blog of his own. I just know it!
Tarh, stash or save?

This morning Husband took Baby after breakfast and I got a run! I ran for a full hour – just over 6 miles. It felt wonderful!. Having been sick the past couple of weeks, I haven’t been able to go full out – if I’ve been able to run at all. But today felt glorious! I have to admit, I’m a bit of a workout junkie. I love the high and I love challenging and pushing myself. Plus, running and physical exercise help me to release emotion, focus my thoughts, and keep me sane (that and well…chocolate, a good scotch/wine, laughs with my girlfriends, and a greasy spoon breakfast).
Since having Baby, I’m not able to do a lot of physical things. It’s one of the changes/challenges that I’ve had to adjust to. But Husband is really good in understanding and he doesn’t kick up too much of a fuss when I ask him to take care of her.
So, that’s me.
Whether you have a baby or not, how do you stay sane?
I don’t know about you, but I didn’t feel like doing my hair or make-up this morning (so really, today’s no different from any other day). I just wanted to get my hair out of the way. We all do it ladies – shove our hair in a ponytail and just forget about it. It gets old, am I right? Lately I’ve been flipping through mags and found stylish models who have their hair in pigtails or braid(s). It looks so chic, effortless, and like you’re totally above it all but still really cool! Yes, please! Now I’m not saying that I’m particularily successful at the “stylish pigtail”, I’m just saying it’s possible.
|Picturesque Lagos, Portugal.|
|One of my favorite memories. ( I had a cane because of an injury).|
I’m always reminded of eating sorbet in Lagos when I wear this dress (that’s where I bought it). I loved Lagos. So beautiful and picturesque. I’m not so crazy about the dress, however, because the top is too big. But I love the pattern, and I think if I altered it into a skirt it would be fabulous. What do you think? Alter? Trash, stash, or save?

Baby’s asleep right now. I’m going to enjoy my Creme Caramel Roibos tea and read some blogs. Have a great everyone! See you all tomorrow!

So Casa Joanna is still sick. I thought we were getting over it but no such luck. Worst thing ever? Baby is so stuffed up she can’t breath through her nose when she’s lying down. Which means that I spent the entire night holding her in a reclining position so she could sleep…which means that I slept only 2 1/2 hours. Later in the morning Husband took her and I got another 2 hours. So yeah, you can imagine how I’m feeling. WHen is this cold going to end??
She’s been sucky and whining/crying all day because she’s over-tired and can’t sleep. I’m just getting a break right now because I put her in her stroller, bundled her up, and took her for a 10 minute walk to get her to sleep. Currently, she’s in the sun room tucked into her stroller.
Needless to say, clothes were not the first thing on my mind. But this dress is a relaxed boatneck dress that I purchsed used when pregnant. Now though I think the top is too big for me. Again, this is another dress I don’t know how I feel about. Trash, stash, or save?
