Cookie Making Play Date

One of my favorite ways to "socialize" are play dates with other stay at home mamas. 

This time I hosted a cookie making play date and we had a great time. 

30 for 30 Spring Remix Challenge #17

I am getting pretty nervous, It is day 17 and I am running out of outfit ideas. I wish I would have included more casual, comfortable clothes.  Oh, and next time I am doing this challenge, I won't be including shoes in the 30 day count. That way, I can wear any shoes I like, and get to choose more clothes. 

This is what I wore today.

Today was a nice and slow day.
We did our lessons and then off to the park to meet up with some friends.

30 for 30 Spring Remix Challenge #15

Today consisted of some light housecleaning, a few loads of laundry, getting all the lessons ready for the week and then shopping and lunch with my princess! 

I organized the kids closets last week, and it turns out that that the summer shoes/sandals don't fit either one of the kids anymore. Dresses & skirts from last year are to short on little Em, she sure sprouted this winter! 

Hubby volunteered to watch the little man so I could get some new spring/summer clothes for the kids.

I went to Old Navy, Target, h/m, Nordstrom Rack.

I don't spend a lot of money on kids clothes since they usually wear it for only one season. 
But it all adds up. Lets just say I could have bought a side table I have been wanting with the money I spent today. :( 

I have to say, this has become my favorite skirt by far. It is so comfortable, and I feel that it goes with so many things. I think this is my 3rd time wearing it during this challenge.

Today was a lovely day. We went to morning Shabbat service, then we had friends over for lunch. 

Since I am not wearing any clothes outside my 30 picks, I have lost all interest on clothes shopping. However, I have been focusing more on buying accessories. Which my wardrobe really needs. Because you can create so many more outfits with different accessories. 

I ordered 3 belts from However, all three have to go back. They are to big. This one is one of them, I will go to the store and see if I can exchange it, otherwise I will need to order one online again. 

This is what I wore today:

I am so tired today. I am so happy I get to rest tomorrow. 

Just church, lunch with family and rest all day until sun down. You have no idea how good that sounds. 

I made a yummy cake today, which I am kind of proud of because I am really bad at making cakes, they never turn out. Something always goes wrong. I prefer to buy them. 

This is what I wore after I was done with all the cooking and baking. (which was around 1pm, not bad this week) Which left plenty of time for a Target run. 
I went for 3 birthday cards and came back with 15 other things.

It was another beautiful day today. Today I cleaned the house, went grocery shopping, and did some baking. It has been such a hard and long week, I am really looking forward for Shabbat, I really need the rest. 

This is what I wore today

Backyard Progress

We are tackling a big project this year. The back yard. 
We have three major things on the list: Move fence, build a patio roof and start box gardens. 

So far we have moved the fence and started a garden.

Here is what we have started with.

It is a pretty low maintenance yard, but there was a lot of space on the side. We were tired of the un-used space and the fact that people let their dogs poop on our lawn over and over again. 

And now that we moved the fence, we have more room.

(we still need to replace the old fence boards, we literally picked up and moved each part over.)

I am so happy that "spring" is finally here. For this week at least. With the northwest, you don't really know.

30 for 30 Spring Remix Challenge #10

Today was another crazy busy day. 

It was filled with all day gardening, accompanied with 2 trips to Home depot (Grrr... Don't you just hate it when you run out of something in the middle of a project?) 

 I planted flowers, shrubs and bulbs in the back and front yard as well as spreading new bark. 

I am so sore and tired from two full days of working outside, and I didn't recognize my ugly nails today. I finally took the time to clean them make them all nice and pretty again tonight.  

This is what I wore today. I took of my scarf while gardening because it kept getting in the way. 

And with my prescription sunglasses:

 Boyfriend Jeans: Nordstrom
White shirt: Kohls
Scarf: Anthropologie 
Shoes: Pay Less
Hat: Forever 21
