Blue and Gold

Blog Everyday in May Challenge, Day 7: What am I most afraid of?

This is a hard one.  Before my son, I was really afraid of the dark, for real. I couldn't walk through our house at night without flipping switches as I went.  Then, Grant was born, and all mom's know there is plenty of walking though the house at night when your little one wakes up hungry.
From that point on my biggest fear became something happening to my family, most specifically, to Grant.  I had a crazy fear for the first year of Grant's life that I would forget him in the car and go to work.  Now, he talkes so much I'd know if he was in there. : )

Now to my outfit: Today I kind of feel like I need to be cheering on my high school team, the Warriors.  Blue and Gold were our school colors and Before last week, I don't think I've worn the colors together in about a decade.  I love the ease of this outfit and I feel put together but comfortable, and to me that's a fabulous combination.

  2. I'm not a huge fan of the dark either...especially if the power goes out! Love navy and yellow together and this is a cute, casual outfit!

  3. Two of my favorite things - yellow and denim! I love this outfit! And I am terrified of something happening to my family too. I'm sure I will be the same way when I have a little one!

  7. You look very put together yet casual. The gold sandals are cute. Great necklace (I have a similar one) & bracelet.

    I have fears about the baby now too, that I am a mom. All kinds of scary thoughts go through my head. I think it is normal and it is a natural motherly instinct to have.

  10. One of my biggest fears is something happening to people I love too. I can't imagine how much worse that fear will get when I have kids!

  16. I know what you mean about the dark. I have to switch every light in the house on when I walk through the house. I also have to leave every door open because I get paranoid that I'll be locked in the room.

    Cute outfit! Go the Warriors!!
