. . . for Lauren and Lauren: tweed vests, a baby scam and holiday music

December 10, 2013

tweed vests, a baby scam and holiday music

vest: target   shirt: gap outlet  jeggings: walmart  boots: amazon 

I'm usually really good at waiting until something goes on sale or on clearance before I buy it.  I have seen this vest multiple times and wanted it bad enough that I just may have bought it for $35 if I found it in my size earlier.  Thankfully I didn't, because once I did find it, it was $5 off and I had a $5 off coupon, so it was only $25. 
I'm not much of a hat person but I really love this one.  I won it in a giveaway last year and I wish I could remember where it was from!

Chris thought it would be a good idea to enter Addilyn into a cutest baby contest.  You can vote for her here.  He also isn't aware of baby scams and thought it was a great idea to pay $15 to enter her into some talent agency something.  Needless to say I had to inform him that those things are scams and he wasted $15 of our money.  He is still convinced some talent agency is going to contact us and hire Addilyn. 
I honestly spent many minutes trying to remember how old I am the other day.  How long can you get away with baby brain? 

I wear much less jewelry these days since I'm not working, plus Addilyn will grab and try to eat anything in sight.  Which is said because I have quite the collection of statement necklaces and long necklaces that are going to waste! I would however like to at least wear earrings but need some smaller, nicer ones.  I've always wanted real pearl earrings and think I should own some one day. 

I LOVE listening to Christmas music.  And sometimes the song O Holy Night makes me cry.  On the other hand when I hear the song Carol of the Bells I immediately start feeling anxious, and I picture myself running down an endless alley being chased.  

Hope you are having a good week so far!

Dads are funny, aren't they?? Well intended for sure. I've heard that pregnancy brain is slightly permanent much to my dismay. I'm way more forgetful and do silly things than I did pre-baby. Good thing our little ones are cute :)

Love that hat and your outfit!!! really nice.

I am one for the Christmas music...lol about Carol of the Bells..your too funny.

On Elsa's baby swing I was surprised that there is the Nutcracker song on it...lets say I keep hitting repeat when she is in the swing. That is the only song you are hearing at my place at the moment.

I love that vest! And awesome that you got a deal on it. I also often forget my age. And my "baby" is almost 16-months old. So, I think baby brain can't be blamed and I am just getting old. :)
