I did snap this outfit picture Saturday morning and write up this post pretty quickly, then planned to rest while Hannah naps and Grant rests in his room.
I haven't really been shopping, in fact, I've been doing the opposite. I've gotten rid of probably five trash bags full of clothes since school started and I still have way more than I need. It almost makes me feel silly for buying this sweater, but I really like it and when Loft had a 50% off sale lately I decided it would be a fun addition, since I don't have anything else like it.
Outfits like this one are my usual these days. I'm much preferring a top and pants to complicated layers. I still love a good cardigan, but I feel like my days of layers, button down, and vests are done. I also rarely wear more than earrings and a necklace and have sold off a lot of my bracelets and necklaces too. I still have a few I like, but loads of bracelets and big necklaces just aren't my thing anymore. I've been doing a lot of grabbing clothes in the morning without a lot thought, and I'm totally ok with that.
School has been the busiest it's ever been, and having two kids is so much more work than just one....obviously. I love them dearly, but I'm lucky if I get to sit down on the couch before 8:30 at night, and honestly at that point I just want to go to bed. I probably would, but Hannah still takes a bottle at 10:00. In between the kids, work, cleaning, cooking, and actually finding time to spend with Brian not a lot of time is left for much else. I've been carrying the same book around for nearly a month and my quiet time in the morning has been hit and miss as Hannah has been waking up between 5:30 and 6, which causes Grant to wake up too. That means no quiet time and getting ready with two kids in the bathroom with me.
I love this crazy, busy, life, but I am just spent. I didn't intend to write you all a novel, but there you have it: an update and an outfit. I hope you all are doing well, and I'll check in when I can!
